Withdrawal from alcohol and drugs is the process of removing alcohol and/or drugs from the body and returning it to a balanced state of functioning. The substances that people most commonly need help detoxing from are:

  • Alcohol
  • Benzodiazepines (i.e. Xanax, Klonopin, Librium, Valium, Lorazepam (Ativan), etc.)
  • Opioids (i.e. Heroin, Vicodin, Morphine, Oxycontin, Fentanyl, etc.)

While an individual may experience withdrawal symptoms from other substances such as marijuana; withdrawal from alcohol, benzodiazepines, and opioids often create the most medical complications. The need for medically monitored detox is often affected by the types of substances being abused, the length of the abuse, the severity of the abuse, and an individual’s current physical condition. For example, a sudden withdrawal from alcohol could lead to seizures, delirium tremens, heart problems, and other medical complications that could be fatal. As a result, it is often important to be evaluated by a professional to determine your risk factors when undergoing detox.
