Detoxification is the process of harmful substances leaving the body. Drugs work by fundamentally rewiring the brain and altering how the brain’s messaging system work. After prolonged use, drugs can teach the brain that it needs the substances in question to function properly. When those substances are no longer being used, the brain and body have to adjust to their absence, creating the often unpleasant symptoms of withdrawal.
The severity of withdrawal symptoms depends on the substance. Withdrawing from stimulants might mean a few weeks of irritability, restlessness and insomnia. Opioid withdrawal is infamous for the severity of its flu-like symptoms. Withdrawing from benzodiazepines and alcohol can be potentially fatal due to seizures, and in alcohol’s case, delirium tremens.
