Depressants are an extremely difficult drug to “get off” of, for multiple reasons. Firstly, from a mental standpoint, often those addicted to depressants were first prescribed those for a legitimate injury/need, but that legitimacy has morphed into addiction. Telling yourself you need to abstain from something that is technically legal is very difficult. Secondly, from a physical standpoint, withdrawal symptoms from depressants can be severe and life-altering, so having someone to support you in that is key. CASA Recovery can assist with addiction to depressants, and tailor a program to best help you overcome depressants.
Typical Withdrawal Symptoms from Depressants
There are both short-term and long-term effects to depressant withdrawal. The severity of these is directly correlative to what type of depressant was abused and the longevity of the abuse itself. Some short-term effects of depressants include sleepiness, dizziness, confusion, and shortness of breath. Some long-term effects of depressants include more serious breathing difficulties, depression, and chronic fatigue. Withdrawal symptoms can vary based on the individual but some of these include body pains, overall weakness, nausea, confusion, insomnia, and more.
Withdrawal can be even more difficult if the drug is something you were prescribed correctly, because you might still, underneath all of that addiction, might need something like it or similar to cope. A doctor will be able to determine the necessity of it, however oftentimes most people addicted to depressants have long-since abused it past the point of need. Let a skilled doctor determine what is best for you and your particular addiction situation.
