What It Means to Enter Drug and Alcohol Rehab
How Long Does It Take for Withdrawal Symptoms to Kick In?
A major component of many addiction treatment plans is ensuring that all traces of the substance are out of the patient’s body before their treatment can truly begin. Detoxification facilities help people cope with these symptoms and keep them in a controlled environment where they cannot access their vices and focus on working through their withdrawal symptoms.
For most people, the signs can begin to show themselves within a few hours after their last hit, or it could happen in a few days. It can significantly depend on the addiction and tolerance levels.
What Happens to Your Body During Detox?
The physical reactions people experience during their detox happen due to their bodies missing the substance’s presence in its system. People who have spent years using drugs and alcohol recreationally have built a natural tolerance to the substance. Their bodies learn how to function under the influence, and when it’s gone, it can take some time before they can begin to learn how to function without it again.
If they do not have a stable support system in place to cope with their experience, their likelihood of a relapse increases. In many cases, people fail to get clean because they believe it’s easier to indulge in their vices than deal with the withdrawal symptoms.
