After admitting that you have a problem, detox is the first step to recovering from drug or alcohol addiction. It’s also one of the most painful and dangerous phases of the recovery process.
When you get addicted to a substance, your mind and body form a powerful attachment to it. Therefore, when you decide to stop taking it, you’re going to experience physical, mental, and emotional pain because of your bodies chemical dependency on the substance. We have medical staff available to provide care throughout.
Since we don’t believe in sugar-coating the withdrawal process, here are some of the symptoms and emotions you might experience.
- Head, body, and stomach aches
- Vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea
- Confusion, irritability, and anxiety
- Sweatiness and high heart rate
