What to Expect During Drug Detox

Addictive substances change the way the brain processes and manages emotions and interfere with the brain’s pleasure and reward centers, resulting in cravings and dependency. Once dependence forms, withdrawal symptoms will set in when the substance is removed. The severity and length of withdrawal depend on several factors, including:

  • Severity of addiction.
  • Type of substance used.
  • Length of use.
  • Method of use.
  • Amount used.
  • Physical and mental health.
  • Family history.

Withdrawal from different types of substances, such as stimulants (cocaine), depressants (alcohol) and opioids (heroin), produces different side effects, requiring specialized approaches to detox. At Makana Path, we understand the physical and emotional challenges of detox, as well as substance-specific challenges, and create highly individualized detox plans that make the process as safe and comfortable as possible.

Common Symptoms of Drug Withdrawal

Quitting drugs or alcohol isn’t as simple as stopping substance use. In fact, quitting “cold turkey” can be dangerous. Different substances produce different withdrawal symptoms for varying lengths of time. Common withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Cravings.
  • Nausea and vomiting.
  • Loss of appetite.
  • Increased heart rate.
  • Body aches.
  • Headache.
  • Anxiety.
  • Depression.
  • Insomnia.
  • Fatigue.
  • Disorientation.
  • Difficulty concentrating.

Withdrawal symptoms are different for everyone, but with a proper combination of medication and counseling, they can be overcome and recovery can begin.
