Withdrawal describes the various symptoms that occur after a person abruptly reduces or stops long-term use of a drug. Length of withdrawal and symptoms vary with the type of drug. In many cases, withdrawal can easily be treated with medications to ease the symptoms, but treating withdrawal is not the same as treating addiction.
Our therapies focus on developing self-concept, assessing and enhancing motivation and encouraging behavioural modification. Other than the intrinsic pathway to recovery, Lifeway House considers the external factors to recovery and reintegration by including the social support system in the treatment process, identifying co-dependency among other factors.
