Coping with Withdrawal Symptoms

Withdrawals are the group of symptoms that occur upon the abrupt discontinuation or decrease in intake of medications or recreational drugs. In order for the symptoms of withdrawal to occur, one must have first developed a form of drug dependence. This may occur as physical dependence, psychological dependence or both. Drug dependence develops from consuming one or more substances over a period of time. Dependence arises in a dose-dependent manner and produces withdrawal symptoms that vary with the type of drug that is consumed.

Medical Detox

For some people, a rehabilitation center or a medical detox center may be a great first step in their journey of addiction recovery. This is oftentimes the safest and most attainable method for detoxing and beginning the journey of recovery.  This will give you the opportunity to accumulate clean time, rest and rebalance, nourish your body, work on goals, and even work with a therapist or drug counselor. It gives you an opportunity to become strong and balanced before you are faced with the world again. 

Ibogaine Detox

Ibogaine is a West African indigenous medicine used to interrupt addiction by neuro-chemically transporting one to a pre-addicted state.  It is a psycho-active substance commonly known to invoke a deeply introspective examination of both the subconscious and conscious mind. Ibogaine is the most effective natural treatment used to eliminate the physical symptoms of opiate withdrawal.  It can be used as the primary detox aid, or it can be used following detox to offer one a psycho-therapeutic experience.​


Herbal At-Home Detox


Herbal Detoxing is the process of naturally supporting yourself, a loved one, or a client when doing a cold-turkey detox using over-the-counter products and natural supplements to ease the withdrawal symptoms. This method of detox can be difficult but can be manageable with the proper preparations. If you or someone you love are thinking about detoxing at home, it's important to discuss all of your plans with your doctor or addiction specialist.
