Alcohol Detox Treatment At Amazonite

Integrity to be the best

Alcohol detox is the natural process of ridding alcohol from the body. However, our professional alcohol detox program, also sometimes referred to as “medically managed withdrawal,” entails the use of a set of interventions (such as medications and other therapies) to safely manage the side effects that accompany quitting alcohol.

It’s critical to realize the difference between a professional alcohol detox program and substance abuse rehabilitation; although ”detox” and “rehab” are often used interchangeably, substance abuse rehabilitation involves a conglomeration of ongoing services that aim to socially and psychologically rehabilitate someone suffering from drug abuse. Medical detox centers, on the other hand, seek to medically stabilize patients, minimize their withdrawal symptoms, prevent the potentially harmful effects of withdrawal, and help them transition into a substance abuse rehabilitation program or other form of continued care.

Alcohol Detox Side Effects

Those undergoing alcohol detox may experience symptoms and side effects of drug withdrawal. Side effects will depend on the amount of alcohol the patient has a history of abusing, but common side effects of alcohol detox may include:

  • Mood changes such as mood swings, anxiety, depression, and agitation.
  • Body changes such as flu-like symptoms, shaking, nausea, and headaches.
  • Cravings, particularly for the drug they are attempting to quit.

What Is Alcohol Withdrawal?

Diagnosing Alcohol Withdrawal

If your doctor thinks you might be going through alcohol withdrawal, they’ll ask you questions about your drinking history and how recently you stopped. They’ll want to know if you’ve ever gone through withdrawal before.

They’ll also discuss your symptoms. During an exam, they’ll look for other medical conditions to see if they could be to blame.

Treatments for Alcohol Withdrawal

Unless you have a serious health condition or you’ve had severe withdrawals in the past, you probably won’t need more than a supportive environment to help you through. That includes:

  • A quiet place
  • Soft lighting
  • Limited contact with people
  • A positive, supportive atmosphere
  • Healthy food and lots of fluids

If you decide to get treatment, your doctor can recommend the type of care that you need.

If your blood pressure, pulse, or body temperature rises, or if you have more serious symptoms like seizures and hallucinations, seek medical care immediately (dial 911). Your doctor could suggest inpatient care and drug treatment.

Common medications include benzodiazepines to help treat symptoms like anxiety, insomnia, and seizures. You might also take anti-seizure meds and antipsychotics, along with other drugs.

Can You Prevent It?

Treating alcohol withdrawal is a short-term fix that doesn’t help the core problem. When you talk to your doctor about symptom relief, it’s a good idea to discuss treatment for alcohol abuse or dependence. The doctor can give you advice to help you stop drinking.

Timeline of Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms

The symptoms of alcohol withdrawal can range from mild to serious. What yours are depends on how much you drank and for how long.

6 hours after you stop drinking: Mild symptoms can start as early as 6 hours after you put down your glass. They can include:

  • Anxiety
  • Shaky hands
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Insomnia
  • Sweating

12-48 hours after your last drink: More serious problems, including hallucinations, can start in this timeframe and may include hallucinations (about 12-24 hours after you stop drinking) and seizures within the first 2 days after you stop. You can see, feel, or hear things that aren’t there.  Learn more about the timeline of alcohol withdrawal symptoms.

48-72 hours after you stop drinking: Delirium tremens, or DTs as you’re likely to hear them called, usually start in this timeframe. These are severe symptoms that include vivid hallucinations and delusions. Only about 5% of people with alcohol withdrawal have them. Those that do may also have:

  • Confusion
  • Racing heart
  • High blood pressure
  • Fever
  • Heavy sweating
