How Can A Better Today Help With Withdrawal?
Withdrawal is something that happens when someone stops using a substance after a period of time. Their body has become dependent on whatever substance that was being used. Fear of going through the period of withdrawal is what keeps a lot of people who are addicted in that vicious cycle. The symptoms of withdrawal depend on the substance, how often it was used, how long it was used and what medications the person is taking. Sweating, shaking, tremors, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, depression, anxiety, psychosis, and seizures are all symptoms of withdrawal.
