Alcohol Detox Treatment
If you are reading this, chances are that you or a loved one have a problem with drinking. If you or someone you know has recently made a decision to stop drinking, you have arrived at the right place.
It could be that you are unsure whether drinking has become a problem in your life. The basic definition of an alcoholic taken from the book Alcoholics Anonymous is “a physical compulsion to drink coupled with a mental obsession.” If you have found that you are unable to stop drinking entirely on your own, even with the desire present, you could have a problem with alcohol.
A person does not have to be classified as an alcoholic to have an issue with drinking. Is drinking causing a problem in your life and in your relationships? Many men have crossed the line from social drinkers to problem drinkers to alcoholics. However, with alcohol addiction treatment it is possible to overcome problems with drinking and alcoholism.
Actually putting a name on what type of drinker you are is not nearly as important as recognizing that you wish to put the drink down, but cannot. Have you ever found yourself unable to say “no” to drinking for any length of time, when you find yourself staring at the bottom of an empty glass thinking “how did this happen?” This could signify that drinking is causing a problem in your life.
At His House we know that willpower is powerless when it comes to combating a drinking problem. There is no match for alcohol other than treatment. Alcoholism is a chronic disease of the mind, body, and spirit.
The reasons behind not being able to successfully abandon the drink on your own is not a reflection of your character or inner strength. In fact, problem drinkers and alcoholics are hands-down some of the smartest, kindest, and smartest people that we know.
The withdrawal symptoms from alcohol can vary in severity, so our patients are closely monitored by our highly trained medical staff to ensure that the period of withdrawal goes as safely and smoothly as possible.
What You Can Expect When Stopping Drinking
Alcohol withdrawal symptoms can begin as early as two hours after the last drink is consumed. Here are common symptoms seen from alcohol withdrawal:
- Loss of appetite
- Delirium tremors
Alcohol withdrawal is considered a medical emergency; our alcohol detox treatment program will allow you to face and endure any or all of the above symptoms safely and with as much comfort as can be provided.
Symptoms of withdrawal to begin to develop within 2 to 6 hours after stopping drinking. Usually, within 2 to 4 days the symptoms peak and are at their worst. Day 5 of abstinence from alcohol is usually the “hump” to get over.
It is possible for symptoms to linger for up to 2 weeks as your body flushes out the last remnants of alcohol. Because of the severity of the withdrawal from alcohol, it is imperative that the detoxification process is not attempted alone.
