My best friend who’s living in Milpitas called me up and was so worried about his younger brother. At first, when I asked her what happen she doesn’t want to tell me exactly, but later on she confessed that his brother had been taking different kind of drugs and smokes marijuana. I’m shocked and surprised; I don’t know how I would react. I asked her condition, if her brother did harm on her and she said nothing happened.
Actually she told me that it has been two years since he’s brother started his addiction. And they are thinking to have him enter a drug rehabilitation. Her brother agrees to undergo a drug detox. I suddenly remember medicaldetox.org, which offers medically supervised detoxification.
MedicalDetox.org specialized in providing drug detox evaluation and treatment of emotional, psychiatric, and substance use disorders. Although detox process is not a complete drug treatment programs, rather the first step. So it needs to be followed by a behavioral based treatment that is designed to treat the underlying factors of drug addiction.
With her brother case, withdrawal from drugs that he been used can cause severe symptoms such as intense cravings, shaking, sweating, nausea, vomiting, hallucinations, headaches, diarrhea, abdominal cramping, inability to sleep, seizures, anxiety, depression, confusion, and agitation, mostly physically and normal sign of withdrawal. But then, those symptoms can vary in length and intensity based on the length of use and amount of consumption. So I told her to be brave enough to see he’s brother in that situation. Hope things will get better soon for her.
