The first step on your journey to recovery is withdrawal. During this process, as drugs and alcohol leave your body, you might experience painful or uncomfortable physical symptoms. It’s crucial to go through withdrawal under the supervision of a medical team. Some individuals try to quit drinking or using drugs all at once, which can be dangerous. Withdrawal from alcohol, heroin, and benzodiazepines such as Xanax or Valium can lead to severe and life-threatening symptoms if not done carefully.
Over the course of an addiction, the brain and body become used to the presence of the addictive chemical. Over time, the user’s tolerance increases, which drives them to use more of the substance more often to reach the same high.
Physical dependence, however, is a two-sided coin. Just as it fuels the addiction, it also hurts the user when they stop using their substance of choice. When the addictive chemical is no longer present, the body exhibits multiple withdrawal symptoms. This is especially true for those who have used the drug for a long time or in particularly heavy doses. For these users, detox is a life-saver; withdrawal symptoms for these users can cause death if the user is not supervised.
