  5. How long does opiate withdrawals last?
Asked: 2018-09-16 03:12:59
My brother is a pretty bad ox the addicts, and he’s trying to stop using to get a better job. He’s been curled up in his bed for the last day, and I’m kind of scared. He’s been throwing up and I’ve had to change the sheets twice because of the sweating. How long will the withdrawals last?

if he’s been an addict for a long time, then the withdrawals are probably going to last about two weeks. But, the worst parts will be over in three or four days. After this, he should be able to start taking care of himself again.

It’s hard to watch somebody you care about go through that. Have you asked him about going to rehab? A good program can help him to detox safely and can take some of the pressure off you. He’ll probably get worse before it gets better, but he should start to be up and around by day five or six. Just do the best you can and if you feel like it’s an emergency call the hospital.
