It can be difficult for individuals to make the decision to begin their journey towards sobriety. It’s even more difficult when they begin to think of the obstacles that stand in their way. One of the biggest obstacles that deter many from reaching recovery is withdrawal. The abrupt stop of any type of illicit substance will cause physical and sometimes mental discomfort. Many individuals find that withdrawal affects their sleep, appetite, and moods. There’s also a risk of severe symptoms depending on the strength of the substance that the individual uses. Some severe symptoms can include tremors, severe pain, and have the potential to be fatal. The intensity in which withdrawal can occur is why professional detox programs are necessary for recovery.
Detox Programs and Their Importance to Recovery
When an individual makes the decision to longer use their substance of choice, the begin the detox process. This means that the substance is leaving the body entirely. During this time, the body can begin to experience withdrawal symptoms. While some of these can be mild, other symptoms can be dangerous. More severe side effects of withdrawal tend to occur when the substance in use is more potent, or if the body has built up a strong dependency and tolerance over a longer period of time.
With professional detox programs, individuals are able to experience withdrawal in a safe environment. Medical professionals are able to monitor those experiencing withdrawal to prevent injury or death. Should the need arise, the professionals can administer medications to help make the process more comfortable and less stressful on the body.
