What Should You Expect From Alcohol Withdrawal?
Depending on the severity of dependence, withdrawal could have either wide side effects or very low effects. Symptoms commonly associated with alcohol withdrawal include depression, fatigue, shakiness, anxiety, nausea, headache, fever, irritability, and nightmares. In more severe cases, the alcoholic might experience delirium tremens. The tremors, hallucinations, cardiac defects and seizures associated with delirium tremens can be life-threatening. Alcohol detox, especially for those who have been drinking for an extended period of time can be very dangerous and should be carried out strictly under medical supervision.
What Should You Expect After Our Outpatient Alcohol Detox Program?
Medical detox by itself isn’t enough. After the alcohol detoxification process, we need to discover the root cause of alcoholism and your drinking. Detox only involves healing at the physical level. It doesn’t heal the deeper issues fueling the addictive behavior. By addressing the addictive cycle in play we are able to help to achieve recovery safer and sooner.
