When a substance abuser enters rehab, the first phase is detox or detoxification. Patients naturally have to stop their use, or taper it off medically if it’s a sever addiction. This is so their body can be purged of the toxins in drugs and alcohol so their body and mind can prepare for rehabilitation. Of course, people are going to continue to have desires and cravings for substances, and these are called withdrawals. Withdrawal cravings and desires are handled differently, depending on what drugs and alcohol were used by the patient.
When withdrawal symptoms are the most severe, these patients are prescribed medications to help cope with the pain and sickness from not being able to get a “fix.” For withdrawal symptoms that are less severe, treatment professionals and doctors can use other methods aside from medication to help them cope with the cravings and desires.
People who are addicted to benzos and alcohol need to be especially careful when they stop using. Stopping use of these too substances abruptly can create harmful withdrawal symptoms, including seizures, shock and even death. It is highly recommended that users of alcohol and benzos receive treatment at a medically accredited detoxification facility. Detoxing on their own can have serious consequences. It’s best to detox under medical care should anything go awry.

Taking part in a weekly group meeting near you will further help in your recovery. Join AA, CA, HA, NA or any other number of groups where people who are struggling with the same addiction as you convene and share their struggles. This will become a support group you can lean on in hard times. You can also find a sponsor in these groups who will personally help you on your path to recovery. Also, consider joining a 12-step program. Many recovering addicts attribute the 12-steps as the primary factor in helping them live sober lives, overcoming their addiction on a daily basis. The core tenets of 12-steps are having accountability for your actions, making amends to those you may have harmed, and admitting you are powerless and need some form of a higher power to overcome your addiction.
