Trying to get free of an addictive substance can be a frightening and lonely road, which is why it’s important for those struggling with substance abuse to have as much support as possible. When detoxing from opiates, individuals should expect to experience a series of physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms.

There are generally three main phases of withdrawal symptoms, many of which are physical in nature. When going through this withdrawal period, individuals should be carefully monitored by qualified medical staff. Withdrawal symptoms can last for weeks, and following this detox, it is important that former addicts get additional help through rehab. Rehabilitation can assist with cognitive behavioral therapy, therapy with families and individuals, 12-step programs, fitness and nutrition, and continuing care and relapse prevention.

Get details about the short- and long-term symptoms involved with detox and rehab by referring to the infographic below.
