Is insomnia normal while detoxing?
Insomnia can exacerbate an addiction just as detoxing from an addiction
can exacerbate insomnia. Because of alcohol’s depressant qualities,
some people might start to use it before bed to get a better night’s
sleep, or to fall asleep more quickly.
WebMD lists one of the
symptoms of alcohol withdrawal as insomnia. Lack of sleep may indicate Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome. To be
diagnosed with Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome, patients must be exhibit at least two of these symptoms: hand tremors,
insomnia, nausea/vomiting, hallucinations, psychomotor agitation, anxiety,
seizures, or autonomic instability.
The good news is, you don't have to go through this alone. We strongly
encourage anyone ready to break free from their addiction to get professional
help. Turning Point is here for New Jersey residents, to come alongside
