The first step in a drug rehabilitation program is drug detox. Detox, or detoxification, is the process during which the substance upon which the addict has become dependent is withdrawn and the body is given a chance to rid itself of associated toxins. During this time the addict will experience a wide range of withdrawal symptoms. It is best that these symptoms are managed within an environment that provides both medical and psychological support.
The withdrawal symptoms that may be experienced vary from person to person and are dependent on the type of substance abused and the level of abuse. The longer the person has been addicted, the longer the symptoms will last and the more severe they are likely to be. Symptoms can include general physical discomfort, sweating, chills, irritability, mood swings, anxiety, insomnia and tiredness. In some cases the person may also experience vomiting and diarrhea. The good news is that many of these symptoms can be managed through appropriate medical care and supervision. This is why it is preferable to find a reputable drug rehabilitation center in your area that offers these professional services.
The role of family and friends cannot be underestimated during the recovery period. Simply going through a drug detox program will not be sufficient to cure the addiction. The greatest challenge will be faced in the months and years after the detox when cravings and other symptoms will continue to reappear. These can be addressed on an ongoing basis through participation in outpatient programs. Your care, understanding and support will make a world of difference to your loved one’s recovery.
