Alcohol Detox Overview
Alcohol Detox is the first step in for Alcohol Abuse and/or Alcoholism Treatment. In instances where people have been abusing alcohol, the brain and body can essentially become physically dependent upon the substance. This not only contributes to addiction, but also can present withdrawal symptoms, when a person no longer takes the substance. Therefore, as with many other instances of substance withdrawal, it’s common for people going through the Alcohol Detox process often to experience a number of challenging, uncomfortable symptoms, as their bodies detox from the substance. For this reason, we’ve designed a support program that ensures and protects a person’s physical and mental well-being, throughout this process, so they can successfully and thoroughly engage in therapeutic work.
Symptoms of Alcohol Detox
While symptoms vary according to the individual, some of the symptoms commonly experienced throughout the Alcohol Detox process include, but are not limited to:
- flu-like symptoms, such as body aches, weakness, and sweating;
- feelings of anxiety and depression;
- tremors and/or body shakes;
- nausea and vomiting;
- heart palpitations and difficulty breathing;
- and in some cases, seizures.
While experiencing these symptoms can be challenging, the good news is people we work with in Alcohol Detox also report almost-immediate feelings of relief, encouragement, and hope.
