Narcotics Withdrawal

Narcotics WithdrawalNarcotics withdrawal occurs when an individual stops taking these drugs suddenly after using for a prolonged period. Narcotics are a large group of drugs which include heroin, morphine, oxycodone, and any other drug derived from opium.

When a person abuses narcotics not only do they become physically addicted, the drugs also create a psychological dependence. The only way to stop narcotic abuse is by entering an inpatient drug rehab. Before treatment officially begins, clients have to go through the detoxification process. During detox, withdrawal will occur. The process is challenging but can be done, especially with the help of our professional staff.

Withdrawing From Narcotics

During withdrawal many symptoms can occur. Some symptoms of withdrawal are:

  • Irritability
  • Muscle cramps
  • Rapid pulse
  • Tremors
  • Vomiting
  • Anxiety
  • Confusion
  • Mood swings
  • Hallucinations
  • Weight loss
  • Leg cramps
  • Runny nose
  • Fever

Narcotics effects and withdrawal symptoms can vary, depending on such variations as the person, the duration of the abuse, and the drug taken.

Withdrawal is Necessary to Overcome Addiction

Withdrawing is not a necessarily pleasant process, but it has to be done in order to overcome an addiction. Getting clean is the only way to improve your life and make a huge change. Experiencing withdrawal from narcotics should be done in an inpatient setting. While in a facility, staff can assist the clients and get them through the challenging process of healing.
