Drug and Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms

Starting Recovery, Withdrawal Symptoms

One of the most difficult hurdles of beginning recovery from addiction, is the intense withdrawal symptoms experienced when initially abstaining from a chronically used substance. Have you ever tried to stop smoking marijuana, but became too anxious to fall asleep? How about Oxycodone, but your back hurts too much? Withdrawal encompasses both physical and emotional pain, and often results in relapse to substance abuse when facing the difficulties of detoxification. It’s important to understand that withdrawal is a normal, necessary part of the detox and recovery process, and is best handled under the supervision of addiction experts. Let the detox specialists at Muse help you through your withdrawal process in a safe, comfortable and professional setting using the most advanced treatment methods available.
