doctor explaining withdrawal management

If you are struggling with addiction to drugs or alcohol, you might have tried to quit before on your own. However, withdrawal symptoms may have derailed your attempts at sobriety. Addiction is a chronic disease, meaning there is a high risk of relapse. Uncomfortable or painful withdrawal symptoms can make recovery difficult, especially without medical care and support. At San Antonio Recovery Center, we help our patients begin recovery with a strong foundation through withdrawal management. This approach to treatment uses therapy, medical care, and medication to help those who are in the early days of sobriety. Withdrawal management is a highly effective service that can help you or your loved one break free of the bonds of addiction.

What Is Withdrawal?

Withdrawal symptoms accompany detox. These symptoms occur because when the brain and body are dependent on drugs or alcohol, suddenly quitting the substance causes pain or discomfort. Every individual will experience different withdrawal symptoms depending on their experience with the substance and their physical health.

We offer withdrawal management services for those in our detox programs to ease withdrawal symptoms and to reduce the risk of relapse. Many individuals who try to detox on their own will eventually relapse in order to feel relief from withdrawal symptoms. However, in our recovery center, our guests have the support and medical care they need to make it through the early stages of recovery without turning back to drugs or alcohol.

Common Withdrawal Symptoms

While withdrawal symptoms may vary from one person to another depending on the substance, there are some common physical and psychological symptoms that accompany detox.

Physical Symptoms

  • Headaches and dizziness
  • Chest tightness and difficulty in breathing
  • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach aches
  • Muscle tension, twitches, tremors, shakes, and muscle aches
  • Racing hearts palpitations and skipped beats
  • Sweating and tingling

Psychological Symptoms

  • Anxiety, restlessness, panic attacks, and irritability
  • Difficulty falling or staying asleep
  • Poor concentration and poor memory
  • Depression
  • Social isolation and lack of enjoyment
  • Poor appetite and fatigue

While withdrawal symptoms are rarely fatal, complications are possible. Going through detox in our recovery center ensures that you are safe, supported, and comfortable during the process. Then, you can enter into one of our treatment programs to develop the healthy coping skills you need for lasting, sustainable recovery.
