One of the most difficult parts about trying to overcome an addiction to drugs or alcohol is having to deal with the mental and physical symptoms of withdrawal. People who are struggling with addiction often are reluctant to ask for help, but they try to get sober on their own. That doesn\u2019t usually turn out well. A person may be able to stop for a day or two, but the symptoms of withdrawal become too much, and the person turns back to their substance of choice. Withdrawal can be extremely dangerous, so it\u2019s important to get to a substance abuse treatment center that provides a detox program. That way, you\u2019re sure you get the care and support that you need. \r\nSubstance Abuse Treatment for Withdrawal \r\nThe detox process is medically supervised and there are facilities that specialize in drug and alcohol detox. Some people go to a hospital for withdrawal symptoms, but they may not be specialized enough to treat some addictions. At a qualified detox facility, you\u2019ll have a medical staff who understands the symptoms of withdrawal and how they can vary depending on the substance you\u2019ve been abusing. Some of the minor symptoms of withdrawal for different substances can include: \r\n\r\n \tNausea\r\n \tAches and pains\r\n \tStomach cramping\r\n \tFlu-like symptoms\r\n \tAnxiety.\r\n\r\nDuring this time, the heart is under an immense amount of stress, and so are the neurotransmitters in the brain. The more dangerous symptoms of withdrawal can include seizures and heart failure, so you need a medical staff with you at all times until you\u2019re stable. A detox program will help you with the initial symptoms of withdrawal, but in order to overcome your addiction and deal with post-acute withdrawal syndrome (PAWS), you\u2019ll then need to go to a substance abuse treatment facility. \r\nPost-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome and Substance Abuse Treatment\r\nThroughout a person\u2019s addiction, there\u2019s a lot of damage done to the organs, nervous system and muscle tissue. Although the harsh symptoms of withdrawal may go away after a week or so, there are some symptoms that can linger for the next few weeks or months. Sometimes these uncomfortable feelings can make a person want to return to their substance of choice. A substance abuse treatment facility is going to provide you with additional care and ways to deal with PAWS without having to drink or use. Not only will you see how new methods help deal with these symptoms, but they\u2019ll also help you with your recovery from active addiction long after the treatment process is complete. \r\nSubstance Abuse Treatment Methods for Overcoming Symptoms\r\nBeaches Recovery has a wide range of addiction treatment services to help you with your symptoms of withdrawal as well as your recovery.
