Alcohol Withdrawal and Detox

Alcoholism is one of the most common addictions in America. The social acceptance of drinking can often lead to denial - and, if left untreated, severe consequences.

What is Alcohol Withdrawal?

Using cocaine increases the amount of the “feel-good” chemical dopamine in the brain.

When someone uses cocaine for a long period of time, he or she develops a tolerance to the drug’s euphoric effects.

Eventually the cocaine user’s brain needs the drug to produce any dopamine or even to feel “normal.” As a result, withdrawal symptoms emerge when someone stops using cocaine. Many addicted people continue abusing cocaine just to avoid these side effects.
