Alcohol detox is a medical intervention that helps a client to safely withdrawal after the cessation of drinking. Clients who are living with chronic alcohol abuse or alcoholism should considering beginning their treatment with an alcohol detox as part of a comprehensive alcohol treatment program.
Alcohol Detox Withdrawal
Patient’s in alcohol detox withdrawal often experience symptoms such as tremors, nausea, vomiting, chills and insomnia. Alcohol detox withdraw can be potentially life threatening, and can lead to seizures when attempted without medical supervision. At Hill Country Detox we use medications that bind to the same near-receptors affected by alcohol, allowing us to safely taper our patients down until they’ve overcome physical symptoms of dependence and withdrawal.
Alcohol Detox Withdrawal Duration
The length of time spent in an alcohol detox program will vary based on the personal experience of the patient due to both alcohol dependence and other coexisting issues, like:
- How long the patient abused alcohol
- When physical alcohol dependence began
- The amount of alcohol ingested each day
- Co-occurring medical disorders
- Co-occurring mental disorders
- Prior trauma or alcohol-induced trauma
In most cases, alcohol withdrawal symptoms will begin within 48 to 72 hours after the patient has his or her last drink and reach their height within a few days, according to U.S. National Library of Medicine. Overcoming the alcohol withdrawal symptoms can take between 5 and 14 days.
