How long do withdrawals normally last?

Withdrawals from drugs will be different for each one, but typically drug withdrawals can last anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks. Detox programs are the best way to help an addict control these withdrawals and make an easy transition into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.
