What to Expect at Our South Florida Drug & Alcohol Rehab
The symptoms associated with withdrawals vary by the types of drugs that are abused. While detox programs work to minimize these symptoms, they may still be present. Typically, while under a detox protocol, symptoms will be mild. However, if you choose to detox on your own at home, there could be dangerous and even life threatening complications.
Mild symptoms of withdrawals include:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Chills and hot flashes
It is important to be honest with the doctor when you enter our South Florida detox program, so they be sure to put you on the right medications at the proper dose to ensure you have a smooth detox. If detox is not managed properly, or an addict or alcohol decides to quit “cold turkey”, dangerous symptoms can be present. Such as,
- Confusion and disorientation
- Suicidal thoughts and severe depression
- Panic attacks
- Delirium tremens
- Extremely high or extremely low blood pressure
