Depends-what drug?

Like when the time comes you usually take it you will get them then, I dunno what happens when you go to Rehab but I think they ease you off it.

depends on the drug, how long they have been addicted, and how much they normally take in one dose

a heroin addict, for instance, can potentially start feeling withdrawals 6 to 8 hours after their last injection

at detox they will give you medication to practically knock you out, so your body can withdraw without you having to feel the pain and sickness. you will spend 5 to 7 days in detox, depending on how long your body takes to flush out the drugs

afterwards you go to rehab. rehab sucks.

Well, if you are trying to quit drugs, i support you completely.
First of all, you can look for the many websites on the net about drugs and the like, where you will find many info.

To give a precise answer to your question we should know what kind of drug are you referring to. But please, don’t get scared, seek help from the people close to you and go to some anonymous counseling center.

Keep going and never look back! You can make it! In a few days you’ll get out of that hell.

Trust me, I know what I’m talking about.

Take care
