Heroin Withdrawal Help
The severe symptoms that hit during a cold turkey withdrawal are awful enough that once a person goes through them, he (or she) may feel he can’t ever face them again. Sometimes a person must face a completely unassisted withdrawal in jail. While withdrawals vary from person to person, some people describe the muscle and bone pain as excruciating. Others may vomit repeatedly and experience continuous bouts of diarrhea as their bodies try to get rid of the drug toxins. Despite the discomfort that is typical during withdrawal, it is possible to give a person support and help that makes withdrawal tolerable. This is what happens at a Narconon drug rehab center.
Unsupported Withdrawal Causes Sleeplessness and Depression as well
It is very common for a person going through heroin withdrawal to be horribly depressed and sleepless. As the body goes through its changes, a person is often very restless. There may be twitches and jerking motions of arms and legs, a symptom that gave rise to the saying, “kicking the habit.”
