Alcohol Detox

It’s easy to tell yourself that you don’t need help with your alcohol abuse. Because alcohol is legal and so many people engage in social drinking, the lines often get blurred between what’s acceptable and what’s excessive. After a while, however, your body lets you know just how dependent it’s become on alcohol and by then it may be too late to stop on your own. When your or loved one’s alcohol abuse has escalated to the point of dependency, you need expert medically supervised detoxification and to help you safely get past your acute physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms.

Why Do I Need Alcohol Detox?

Withdrawal symptoms are one of the primary indicators of dependency. They mean that, even though you may intellectually “want” to stop, changes in your neurochemistry have caused your brain to tell your body you need it to function properly.

Some of the more common symptoms of alcohol withdrawal include:

  • Headache and Migraine
  • Nausea, Vomiting, and Diarrhea
  • Delirium Tremens (DTs)
  • Muscle and Joint Pain
  • Anxiety and Irritability
  • Sensitivity to Light

These symptoms should be handled by an experienced and qualified medical professional who is equipped to comfortably minimize them and knows what to do in the event of a medical emergency.

What Happens in Alcohol Detox?

Alcohol detox typically lasts around three days to a week and is best administered in a residential treatment facility. Patients are monitored closely by medical staff as the toxins that have built up from alcohol abuse leave the body. Patients may be given certain types of medications, such as acamprosate, antiadrenergic agents, anticonvulsants, antidepressants, etc. If you or your loved one are struggling with alcohol addiction or even moderate dependency, contact one of our representatives today. Alcohol detox is the first step toward complete recovery and we want to help you start your treatment now.
