Withdrawal from certain substances can lead to symptoms of psychosis, particularly if the individual has a history of mental health issues. For example, alcohol withdrawal can cause delirium tremens, which is a severe form of alcohol withdrawal that can result in hallucinations, confusion, and disorientation. Withdrawal from certain drugs like methamphetamine or cocaine can also cause psychosis-like symptoms such as paranoia, delusions, and hallucinations. It is important for individuals undergoing withdrawal to be under medical supervision to manage any potential complications.
