"The sustained use of some substances, including alcohol, cause changes within the body. Once the use of those substances ends, those changes can result in discomfort, pain, and sometimes life-threatening complications. These are known as acute withdrawal symptoms and may include anxiety, restlessness, joint pain, stomach cramps, nausea, insomnia, and others. The goal of withdrawal management is to alleviate these symptoms and help patients safely and effectively cease their use of drugs or alcohol.s part of the Withdrawal Management program, patients are introduced to the benefits of ongoing treatment, counseling, and recovery resources. Because Fora Health offers the full continuum of care, our clinicians can work with patients to determine the best next steps for treatment and can help patients step up or down to an appropriate program.Withdrawal Management, commonly called "detox", is designed to ensure a safe and medically supervised transition through the most intense phase of withdrawal from drugs and/or alcohol."
