Have drug testing questions? Get answers from Experts
Hi This is Dr Stan and I will try to help you today. There is no short answer to your problem.For weeks and even months after becoming sober, you may have prolonged symptoms of impulse control and depression. Access to resources such as support groups, therapy or some medication, prescribed and monitored by your physician, can help mitigate the worst of the symptoms. This can allow you to get back to normal life, even as you face withdrawal. While withdrawal symptoms can be long-lasting and severe, they are worth working through in order to reach recovery. It's important to consult with a doctor or therapist. I hope this is helpful although I realize it is not a perfect answer. I am here to answer any additional questions.
