Continuous use of illicit and sedative prescription drugs leads to dependence and addiction. All of these drugs work differently. Some are central nervous system depressors, while others have stimulatory actions. Eventually, your body gets used to working in their presence.
If you suddenly quit or decrease the usual amount of drug intake, it leads to painful symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, confusion, headache, hot or cold flashes, tremors, etc. These are called withdrawal symptoms and their intensity differs from person to person. It also depends upon the type of drug used, duration and how large the quantity of use had been.
Sometimes withdrawal symptoms can be severe and even life-threatening if not managed early and in an expert manner. In clinical practice, detoxification is the first step in the treatment of drug addiction. The process of a detox makes the withdrawal symptoms less painful and manageable.
It is performed in a hospital under expert supervision. However, many times you can also undergo a safe withdrawal at home. Detoxing at home keeps you in a familiar and comfortable home environment, many times being surrounded by a supportive family can do wonders.
