Withdrawal Symptoms During Detox
One of the harsh realities of substance abuse and pursuing sobriety that many people face are withdrawal symptoms. After a long period of time as a drug addict or alcoholic your body will being to forget how it’s supposed to function without that particular substance. This then leads to withdrawal symptoms as your immune system resets and starts to cleanse itself of the toxins from your addiction.
Now depending on the substances you were abusing and the length of time you were addicted the withdrawal symptoms in detox can vary. For example, some patients will experience:
- Panic attacks
- Difficulty concentrating
- Short-term memory loss
- Heart palpitations
- Muscle pain and stiffness
This list contains symptoms that are very frightening, which is why we highly advise against doing a detox from home or without medical supervision. At Chapter Capistrano, we use our medical staff to monitor you 24/7 during the detox process. These highly-trained doctors and nurses will be administering medicine and more to help ease the severity of these detox symptoms.
