With some drugs, withdrawal symptoms can start off mild and then gradually get more severe as use persists; cracks yields severe and potentially life-threatening withdrawal symptoms after only a few cycles of use. The drug creates serious and potentially permanent changes in brain chemistry and can cause users to engage in paranoid and psychotic behavior. While each patient’s crack withdrawal symptoms will vary based on their individual use and metabolism, some of the more common symptoms include depression, anxiety, inability to focus, shaking and tremors, upset stomach, vomiting, sleep disorder, muscle and joint pain, flu-like symptoms, loss of appetite, excessive sweating and more.

Withdrawal is one of the clearest indicators of dependency and should be addressed immediately before addiction intensifies.

Crack withdrawal should be treated through quality and compassionate medically supervised detoxification or “detox”, after which patients should undergo rehab and behavior modification to address the psychological fallout that has occurred from addiction. Recovery Unplugged Texas is one of the few crack withdrawal treatment facilities in Austin that offers medical personnel to treat symptoms and intervene in the event of a medical emergency. One of the tragically ironic elements of crack addiction is that it tends to show in physical appearance very quickly. Physical signs of crack addiction can include extreme weight loss, tooth decay, marks on skin, sunken eyes and more. These physical changes are clear indicators that you and your loved one needs help.
Crack users who endeavor to tackle withdrawal on their own almost always wind up succumbing to relapse and subsequent abuse and withdrawal. Patients who seek help at a poor-quality detox facility often wind up exiting early because they weren’t able to get proper help for their withdrawal symptoms, discouraging them from further treatment altogether.
