What is withdrawal management?

Withdrawal from drugs or alcohol can be characterized by unpleasant and sometimes dangerous symptoms. Managing withdrawal without medical assistance can present significant challenges, heightening the risk of relapse as individuals attempt to alleviate symptoms through resuming substance use.

Understanding the symptoms of withdrawal

Withdrawal symptoms can vary widely depending on the substance someone is addicted to, but there are commonalities among many types of addiction. Withdrawal symptoms can include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Sweating
  • Tremors or shaking
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Muscle pain and stiffness
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Cravings for the substance
  • Insomnia or disturbed sleep patterns

Benefits of withdrawal management

It is crucial to seek professional help when looking to overcome addiction to substances that can cause severe withdrawal symptoms. Getting medical help can greatly reduce the risks and discomfort associated with withdrawal.

Physical manifestations such as fever, nausea and seizures, as well as psychological symptoms like anxiety or depression, are medically monitored through a withdraw management program in a safe environment that provides 24-hour medical supervision including evaluation, observation, medical monitoring and addiction treatment within an inpatient setting.

Physician oversight and comprehensive nursing care are integral components of our program, helping you to overcome addiction and decreasing the chance of relapse.
