Drug and Alcohol withdrawal symptoms will differ from person to person during
treatment. There are no quick fixes for drug abuse or alcoholism but the treatment process
can be made as comfortable as possible in a proper medical rehab center.
Each kind of addiction - be it alcohol, cocaine, heroin, prescription drugs, "club drugs" or any of the other addictive chemicals of abuse - requires a specialized approach to medical withdrawal.
Withdrawal symptoms from the detox process will be medically managed to aid the transition from physical dependence to abstinence. Abruptly discontinuing some drugs can be damaging so a medicated withdrawal may be necessary to begin the process of safely, comfortably, and quickly freeing toxins from the body.
In order for any a treatment program to be successful the initial objective is to stabilize, achieve and maintain a period of abstinence in order to create a solid recovery foundation and it is imperative that the recovering person chooses to engage in the ongoing process of growth and change once abstinence has been achieved. Detox is the first stage of this process and is vital to the success of the rest of the addiction recovery.
The desired end result of this difficult phase is that the body would no longer crave the substances that can damage health and lead to destruction.
