If you come into our Admissions office and appear to be suffering from withdrawal, we will refer to you a detoxification center.

Once you have fully detoxed and overcome withdrawal, we’ll help you find an Odyssey House program that’s right for you.

You may experience a range of symptoms from mild to severe that differ depending on the duration of use, type of drug, age, your physical and psychological characteristics and your method of withdrawal. Here are some of the emotional and physical symptoms you may experience when you stop using.


  • Anxiety
  • Restlessness
  • Irritability
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Poor concentration
  • Depression
  • Social isolation


  • Sweating
  • Racing heart
  • Palpitations
  • Muscle tension
  • Tightness in the chest
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Tremor
  • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea

Do you prescribe Naltrexone or Vivitrol?

If appropriate, we do provide medication-assisted treatment, but only as part of an integrated treatment plan.
