Did you know that the relapse rate for individuals struggling with substance use disorders is relatively high? The rate is estimated to be between 40 percent and 60 percent.

A few factors influence the severity of withdrawal:

  • Level of dependency 
  • Length of time abusing the substance
  • Type of substance abused
  • Method of abuse (e.g., snorting, smoking, injecting, or swallowing)
  • Amount used each time
  • Family history and genetic makeup
  • Medical and mental health factors
