Recovery doesn’t end after detox. Many people believe that once the addictive substance is out of the body and the initial, physical withdrawal has passed, life gets substantially easier. The storm is over and the former addict is free to get on with a healthier more productive life. In actuality, aftercare and sober living are a necessary part of ongoing recovery.
There are actually two phases of withdrawal. The first is purely physical. The body goes through a kind of shock at the disappearance of a chemical it has come to depend on. It takes time to get through this phase and support is often needed. Getting through this phase is a great accomplishment but once it’s over a new phase of withdrawal begins.
The second phase of withdrawal is different.
