Withdrawal and Detox from Drugs

Drugs Withdrawal Symptoms and Detox

At Smarmore Castle, a key element of our treatment is detox. This is because we believe that abstinence is the only way to fight addiction. When detoxing from drugs, or alcohol, an addicted person is likely to experience withdrawal symptoms. These can range from experiencing slight discomfort to very severe symptoms.

The type and severity of withdrawal symptoms depend on a number of factors such as the type of drug the patient used, the duration of the drug dependency, how heavily they used the drug, and whether they were using any other drugs at the same time. Symptoms can also vary between individuals based on their different physiologies.
