Survey Showing 91% of Addicts Face Post Acute Withdrawal Published by Recovery First, Inc.
Date:9/10/2013

"Many people still view addiction as a matter or poor morals, weak will power or some other character defect. But the fact of the matter is that this is a progressive neurological disease that if left untreated invariably leads to death. Many of these deaths occur during a relapse episode caused by PAWS. This means that understanding this inactive state of addiction is critical in order to save lives, and that's where the survey comes in. By distributing these troubling results, we hope to transform the way we treat addicts.

The traditional focus has been to get addicts clean and get them out the door and into some support [networks], but this method does not address the fact that people in recovery will experience severe withdrawal-like symptoms for months after rehab. Without a plan to identify and manage PAWS symptoms, relapse is highly likely for people in the early stages of recovery."

According to an astonishing number of forums, chats, blog posts, articles and recovery communities, the symptoms of PAWS include cognitive impairment, balance and coordination problems, wild emotional disturbances, sexual dysfunction, communication and socialization impairment and a wide range of physical ailments like headaches and sleep disturbances. However, the primary symptom that most people in recovery report is a profound, often uncontrollable urge to use drugs or drink again despite devastating consequences.

Preventing relapse is the singular focus at Recovery First, Inc. - the leading sponsor and driving force behind the 2013 PAWS Survey. Interestingly, when James F. Davis, CEO speaks about addiction, recovery and relapse, he isn't just speaking from a professional standpoint. 32 years ago he was severely addicted to cocaine and had been nursing a lifelong problem with alcoholism that almost killed him. Now he says his mission is to ensure that other addicts don't travel a similar path.
