How to Overcome Drug Addiction: It Starts with Detox
If you have never been to treatment you may have heard tales of what rehab and the detox process are like. You even might have heard stories from friends or relatives who have gone through a rehab and detox program. Everyone experiences something different when detoxing from drugs. Your experience typically depends upon the types of drugs you take, and how long you have abused them. An individual’s tolerance for pain and discomfort will also play a role in how he or she experiences the detox process.
What to Expect During the Detox and Withdrawal Process
Depending on your drug of choice and the severity of your addiction, the detox process will vary. For example, those addicted to heroin will go through a different detox process than someone addicted to Xanax or alcohol. It is important to know when you are in treatment you will not be required to participate in classes/lectures/group therapy or any other activities until your withdrawal symptoms subside. During detox it is important to relax and rest.
Although every individual will experience different symptoms, here are some common drug withdrawal symptoms to be aware of:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Loss of appetite
After you are medically supervised through the detox process, you will be able to receive treatment and education for your addiction. This is the most important part of your inpatient drug rehab visit. The best drug rehab centers will put together a comprehensive treatment plan which prepares you for a sober lifestyle.
