Take the First Step
The first step in your crack addiction treatment is a detox process that allows your body to cleanse itself of the drugs, and this will be followed by a period of withdrawal. As the drug leaves your body, you will begin experiencing the symptoms of withdrawal within 24 to 72 hours. These initial symptoms may include paranoia, tactile hallucinations, and auditory hallucinations. Over the next three weeks or so, you’ll also experience:
- Fatigue and excessive sleeping
- Intense cravings
The possibility of relapse is particularly high at this time, which is why it’s important to undergo proper rehab. Psychological cravings will continue through the third or fourth weeks, and you may experience severe mood swings, depression, and anxiety. For heavy and long-term users, withdrawal symptoms can persist for upwards of six months, and this post-acute withdrawal syndrome is caused by damage to the brain that takes time to heal.
