In the context of substance abuse and addiction, withdrawal refers to the physical and psychological symptoms that occur after stopping or reducing intake of a drug. Withdrawal symptoms vary according to the drug of dependence and severity of dependence, but often include fatigue, sweating, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, hallucinations, anxiety and insomnia.
Individuals seeking substance addiction treatment will start the recovery process through withdrawal management (WM), which is an important first step before a patient commences psychosocial treatment at a reliable addiction treatment center. It is unrealistic to think that withdrawal management will lead to sustained abstinence.
