Detox

Detox

Through continued use of a substance the body builds a tolerance which can lead to a physical and or psychological dependence. The body becomes reliant upon the substance in order to function to some degree. Should the substance become absent, the individual will experience side effects commonly known as “withdrawal symptoms”. These symptoms can vary in type, length and severity dependent upon the type of substance and the regularity and quantity of use. 

Common withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Anxiety

  • Low mood or mood swings

  • Nausea

  • Sleep deprivation

  • Sweating

  • Aches and pains

  • Shaking

  • Retching

  • Seizures

Withdrawal symptoms can range from mild and uncomfortable to severe and life-threatening.
