Narcotics Addiction Recovery

Narcotics Addiction Recovery

Getting free from addiction of these drugs may require that a person participate in a narcotics addiction recovery program. These programs start by getting the drug out of your system and breaking that physical addiction to the drug. This is done through detoxification where a team of medical staff monitor the individual carefully as they go through the process of withdrawals.

This is a physically uncomfortable process providing symptoms such as:

  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Headache
  • Body Aches
  • Cramping
  • Mood Swings
  • Depression
  • Sleeplessness
  • Cold Sweats

Some programs provide the individual with medication such as suboxone to get through this stage.

Detoxification is only one step in the narcotics addiction recovery program. Cognitive behavioral therapy and group therapy are also often used to help modify the behavior of the addict. Teaching the individual alternative ways to manage stress and their reaction to life's ups and downs is a way to help them develop coping mechanisms and avoid triggers to use drugs. They will also be equipped with the ability to recognize when they might be slipping and how to avoid putting themselves into situations that could cause them to be tempted to use again.
