Withdrawal Signs of a Drug Detox

Sep 22, 2022 | Rehab

Prolonged consumption of drugs and other addictive substances damages your mental and physical health. It also affects people around you. Your addiction can also negatively affect your performance at work or school and in other places. Thus, you need to go for a drug detox at a verified rehab center

Drug detox is not easy. Let’s find out what makes it a difficult phase. 

Signs of Drug Detox

The detox experience cannot be the same for all at a rehab center. The detox experience depends upon several factors such as: 

  • Genetics of the patient
  • Type of drug abused 
  • Amount of drug abused 
  • Severity of addiction 
  • Duration of drug abuse 

All these factors decide the experience one can have while undergoing drug detox. 

Another factor that makes it an unpleasant experience is the withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms are the indication of the absence of drugs in your system. These too depend on the factors mentioned above. A few of the withdrawal symptoms observed in a patient detoxing from drugs are:

  • Restlessness
  • Aches and pains
  • Insomnia 
  • Loss of appetite 
  • Mood swings 
  • Irritability 
  • Respiratory issues 
  • Nausea 
  • Vomiting 
  • Shakiness and sweating

If you are suffering from severe addiction, these symptoms will be accompanied by various other severe symptoms like hallucination, seizures, cardiac failure, etc. The more severe the addiction, the more intense will be the withdrawal symptoms and vice versa. 

No matter how strong-willed you are, withdrawal symptoms can easily break you if you’re detoxing alone. Thus, it is always advised to detox under a professional’s supervision at a rehab center.
