Drug Detox Withdrawal Symptoms

Research on drug and/or alcohol withdrawal shows that when you suddenly stop using different drugs, you may encounter various symptoms; these symptoms - as well as their severity - will be different for each person.

Some factors that could potentially influence your withdrawal experience as you undergo detoxification include:

The length of your addiction and the frequency of your substance abuse could affect how severe your withdrawal symptoms are.

The types of substances you misused; in many situations, you will find that those who have a co-morbid dependence on alcohol and drugs might experience unique withdrawal with a myriad of unusual symptoms because one substance could exacerbate the other.

The dosage of the drugs you were abusing when you enrolled in the detox program in Van Nuys, California. Many people experience tolerance after abusing drugs for a long time; basically, they may have to up the amount of drugs and/or alcohol the use to get the effect that they want. Unfortunately, these higher amounts used may eventually cause intense and severe withdrawal when you decide to stop using.

The existence of any co-occurring mental and physical health disorders; people with mental health conditions like anxiety and depression or physical conditions such as chronic pain or insomnia may have more severe withdrawal symptoms.

The half life of the drugs; short-acting drugs cause withdrawal symptoms that are more immediate whereas long-acting substances may cause your withdrawal symptoms to be delayed for several hours or days.

Recent studies on addiction rehabilitation show that when you go through detox, you may develop any of the following withdrawal symptoms:

  • Agitation
  • Chills
  • Cravings
  • Flu-like symptoms, which could include vomiting, nausea, headache, and runny nose
  • Irritability
  • Mood swings
  • Shaking
  • Sleep disturbances and insomnia
  • Sweating
  • Tremors

Finally, it is important that you undergo detox in an accredited program in Van Nuys to insure that all these potential withdrawal symptoms are managed and that you do not give in to the temptation to relapse.
