Divine Detox Shares Tips On How To Fight Subutex, Ativan, And Crack Withdrawal Symptoms

Simi Valley, California -

Divine Detox is sharing tips on the best ways to cope with some of the most common withdrawal symptoms of Subutex, Ativan, and crack cocaine. The Southern California luxury detox center is urging those suffering from addiction to the aforementioned substances to seek medical treatment while undergoing detox. Medical supervision can lessen the intensity of the withdrawal symptoms as the patient will be under the watchful eye of a professional.

Subutex is a partial opioid antagonist that affects opioid receptors in ways used to treat opioid addiction. Subutex helps to mitigate the withdrawal symptoms people experience when they stop taking more potent opioids such as heroin, oxycodone, and fentanyl. However, it is known to be abused by injecting intravenously or crushing the pills into a powder and snorting it. Symptoms of Subutex overdose include low blood pressure, depressed respiration, pinpoint pupils, confusion, dizziness, seizures, and coma. Subutex withdrawal symptoms include muscle cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, sweating, yawning, goosebumps, anxiety, mood swings, irritability, insomnia, and Subutex cravings.

Ativan or lorazepam is a class of benzodiazepines prescribed for treating seizures, insomnia, and anxiety disorders. Though benzos are highly effective in treating people who suffer from severe anxiety disorders, they also pose risks of habit-forming Ativan addiction and abuse. Regular consumption of benzodiazepines like Ativan can alter the way the brain interacts with its neurotransmitters and changes its chemical balance. Over time, the brain develops a tolerance for the drug and addiction takes the place of the desired effect. Prolonged withdrawal symptoms of Ativan include restlessness, anxiety, mood changes, and rebound insomnia. Acute withdrawal symptoms of Ativan include increased anxiety and tension, cravings, palpitations, increased heart rate, hand tremors, panic attacks, disturbed sleep patterns, weight loss, muscle pain, numbness, or stiffness, trouble concentrating, irritability, excessive sweating, and headache, vomiting, and nausea. Psychological Ativan withdrawal symptoms include confusion, changes in mood, anxiety, and memory loss.

Crack is a crystallized form of cocaine made by combining cocaine, water, and often baking soda. Crack cocaine is highly addictive as it produces a euphoric effect. Crack users report feeling energetic, confident, elated, and even focused when on a crack high. Unfortunately, once the drug wears off, the user may feel anxious, overwhelmed, exhausted, and aggressive. Physical symptoms of crack withdrawal include spitting black phlegm, hypersexuality, bronchitis, heart attack, erratic sleeping patterns, vivid dreams, exhaustion, nausea, vomiting, excessive sweating, diarrhea, fatigue, feeling lethargic, brain seizures, increased appetite, sleepiness, discomfort, reduction in activity levels, and restlessness. The psychological and cognitive symptoms of crack withdrawal include paranoia, irritability, mood swings, aggression, agitation, lack of motivation, cravings for the stimulant, chronic depression, difficulty concentrating, lack of pleasure, anxiety, sense of suspicion, paranoia, psychosis, disturbing dreams, negative moods, and cognitive impairment.

A spokesperson for the luxury treatment center talks about the withdrawal symptoms experienced while weaning away from the dangerous drugs by saying, “Subutex withdrawal is a common cause of discomfort for those who have stopped taking other opioids. If you would like to cease your Subutex intake, the team here at Divine Detox presents a helpful resource and, if you happen to need it, can also provide immediate assistance. Benzodiazepines are another dangerous category of substances to detox from. Ativan is a short-acting version that can quickly lead to withdrawal symptoms if taken long-term or misused. On our website, we talk in detail about 'benzos', and Ativan specifically to warn those who might be considering detoxing without someone to look over them. We are also trying hard to repeal the myth that crack does not cause withdrawals. We have extensive firsthand experience witnessing crack withdrawal symptoms. We can help those suffering from them minimize their effects and also help instill within them the principles needed for a cocaine-free life. If you or anyone close to you is experiencing any sort of withdrawal symptoms from these substances or anything else that you or they are addicted to, you are invited to call our Admissions line at any time.”
