When it comes to quitting a dependency on drugs or alcohol, things can get much worse before they get better. Many people struggle with withdrawal, that big crash you may feel after stopping the use of a substance. An irregular heart rate, high blood pressure, volatile mood swings, hallucinations, and seizures are all symptoms of withdrawal. At SSM Health, we understand the struggles you may face.
Our inpatient stabilization program is specifically designed to provide the necessary, present care for our patients going through with withdrawal. Patients 18 and older who are admitted into our care receive individualized treatment specific to their emotional, mental, and physical needs.
Typical patients are in the early stages of withdrawal, requiring medically assisted help. Motivation is the key to successfully completing this program, both during and after inpatient care.
Substance Withdrawal: Signs to Look For
Withdrawal refers to the physical and emotional problems one may experience if there is a sudden stop or reduction in the use of a substance the body has come to rely on. The symptoms vary depending on the substance, but common indicators to look for are:
- Increased heart rate
- Increased blood pressure
- Sweating, chills and tremors
- Body aches
- Nausea and vomiting
- Extended periods of depression
- Volatile mood swings
