    It's the most unpleasant experience of their life, akin to torture. And they have to endure it for 2 days before they can get better. Nothing can save them from the physical and emotional pain except the very drug they're trying to turn away from. As if the temptation to get high wasn't enough to overcome.

    Yet they go to rehab, facing this terrifying experience in order to make a change.

    I just want to rub my hand on their back and hold their hand to give them a bit of comfort as they shake, cry, hurt, and feel like they're going to die.

    I'm confused by this. Is this what drug detox involves? They get back rubs that torture them? Please explain. icon_question.gif

    Rubbing/stroking the back to give comfort. The withdrawal is the torture.

    Do you work in a rehab center?

    Hmm it's my instinct to rub the back to comfort them, I hadn't thought that it would make them more irritated. One more shitty thing about the experience.
