Miami Drug and Alcohol Detox Center

Alcohol and drug addiction does not occur overnight. It is a slow burn that sneaks up on you, usually resulting in your being in its clutches before you even realize. Years of research and study have shown alcoholism and drug addiction to be a chronic and progressive brain disease. This means that it is long-term, in this case lasting the duration of a person’s life, and that it gets worse over time. As far as the medical community has come in defining drug addiction and alcoholism, there is still much that they do not know. For instance it is widely accepted that there is a genetic component to the illness, meaning some individuals through no fault or influence of their own will be more susceptible to the development of addiction then others, but how and why this is passed from generation to generation is still a mystery. It is also thought that there is an environmental component to the illness. This means that given the correct environmental factors someone with latent alcoholic or addict tendencies could cross that thin line from recreation into addiction. Once this line has been crossed there has been no proven treatment to allow that person to drink or drug like a “normal” person again.

" Alcoholism and drug addiction is also one of the only diseases that will attempt to convince the person afflicted that they do not have it. "

Alcoholism and drug addiction are also some of the only diseases that will attempt to convince the person afflicted that they do not have it. Due to this, people tend to underestimate the addictive power of drugs and alcohol, believing that they can control their recreational use. This usually results in the person becoming physically addicted before they are even aware of it. This can be a startling realization when you attempt to stop using or drinking and find that you cannot because of the physical reaction of your body. This physical reaction, or withdrawal, stems from the body’s physiological need for the substance being abused, and it can be extremely uncomfortable, leading many back to the drink or drug in order to stave off the withdrawal symptoms.

Withdrawal symptoms are perhaps the most nefarious part of an addiction. They are what many people think of when they think of drug addiction or alcoholism, and for the person with the addiction, they are a constant anxiety. This anxiety to not feel the horrors that can be withdrawals is what drives a great many addicts to continue to use even in the face of the destruction. Withdrawal symptoms can vary depending on individual physiology, the amount that was being used, and the substance that was being used. However, there are a number of withdrawal symptoms that are common to all individuals suffering from an addiction. They are:

· Anxiety
· Restlessness
· Trembling and shaking
· Nausea and vomiting
· Cold sweats and chills
· Hot flashes
· Irritability and agitation
· Headaches
· Loss of appetite

For those with a less serve addiction, withdrawal symptoms are mostly just uncomfortable and can be dealt with at home. However, withdrawal symptoms for those individuals with severe addictions can be more dangerous, resulting in serious bodily injury, relapse to avoid feeling the uncomfortability or even death.

Why Medical Detox is Important Before Beginning Treatment at Holistic Recovery Centers

More often than not, withdrawal symptoms are not life threatening, though they may feel like they are. There are however exceptions to this rule, and alcohol and benzodiazepine withdrawal do have the potential for life threatening complications. For many though the uncomfortability caused by withdrawals is the real concern, and it is enough to deter many individuals from attempting recovery.
