Drug withdrawal takes a serious toll on the central nervous system, creating complicated and possibly permanent changes to brain chemistry. The longer drug abuse persists, the more dependent the brain becomes on a regular supply to feel normal. This is usually manifested in the overproduction of the neurotransmitter called dopamine. When the body is suddenly forced to go without the user’s drug of choice, the brain sends signals that something is wrong, and it can take a considerably long time before it’s restored to normal function. The scope and severity of these symptoms depends on the duration and frequency of the user’s substance abuse. Drug withdrawal is one of the prime indicators of dependency.
