Drug and Alcohol Detox Withdrawal Symptoms

Research on drug withdrawal shows that when you suddenly stop using different drugs and/or alcohol, you might experience a wide variety of symptoms; these symptoms - and their intensity - will be different for each person.

Some things that could influence your experience during withdrawal as you undergo detox include:

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

The combination of substances you were abusing; in many situations, you will find that those who are addicted to more than one substance might experience unique withdrawal with a myriad of unusual symptoms because one substance could exacerbate the other.

The amount of drugs or alcohol you used to abuse when you entered the detox center in Tacoma, Washington. If a person has been abusing drugs or alcohol for an extended amount of time, they may have developed a tolerance; basically, they might have to increase their usual dose incrementally to feel the effects that they desire. Unfortunately, such high doses 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 depression or physical conditions like insomnia and chronic pain may experience more intense withdrawal symptoms.

The half life of the intoxicating substances; short-acting drugs come with more immediate withdrawal symptoms whereas substances that are longer acting might cause your withdrawal syndrome to be delayed for several hours or days.

Recent studies on addiction treatment 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 go through detox in an accredited rehabilitation center in Tacoma to insure that all these potential withdrawal symptoms are managed and that you do not give in to the temptation to relapse.
