Going through the drug or alcohol withdrawal process is a difficult part of recovery. However difficult it is, it is a necessary step on the road to sobriety. Choosing a program that offers a drug-free withdrawal process means not trading one addiction for another. While it may seem like the easiest option to take a pill or liquid to ward off major withdrawal symptoms you are effectively just picking up a new habit. Your body will being to rely on the new medication to feel normal and the withdrawal process will need to take place all over again to get off the drug substitute medication you are now on.
