What Does Alcohol Detox Cost?

About Alcohol Detox

Alcohol addiction and dependency can lead a person down a dangerous and stressful path. Alcohol dependency will cause a person to continually drink to avoid feeling sick and over time a person will need more and more alcohol to feel normal. This can take a serious toll on a person’s physical health.

According to National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, consuming too much alcohol can weaken a person’s immune system, making their body a much easier target for disease. Long term drinkers are more likely to contract diseases like tuberculosis and pneumonia than people who do not drink a lot. Furthermore, drinking a lot on a single occasion will slow a person’s body’s ability to ward off infections.

When a person finally decides they need to stop drinking, or if they have to because of health reasons, they will go through alcohol detox, which will result in alcohol withdrawals symptoms. The common symptoms associated with alcohol detox include, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, anxiety, muscle aches, excessive sweating, tremors, depression, mood swings and insomnia.

Alcohol detox varies in cost, depending on the type of center you enroll in and the extent of the services offered there.

According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, drinking a lot of alcohol over a long period of time or too much on a single occasion can damage a person’s heart, causing problems such as, stretching heart muscle, irregular heartbeat, stroke, and high blood pressure, which can be fatal.

Due to the severity of alcoholism, most people want to stop drinking at some point. However, quitting drinking can be difficult and many people need help. There are different options that a person can choose from if the wish to stop drinking, but the factor of cost comes in the picture.

If a person does not have much money they can always look up free rehab programs in their area at sites like www.freerehabcenters.org, or they can visit their physician and talk about their options. Some people do not experience intense withdrawals and their doctor can prescribe them medication to help them go through the withdrawals in the comfort of their own home. However this can be dangerous if a person is extremely dependent on alcohol.

A person can also choose to pay for a rehab program, and the cost of this will vary greatly. The average cost of alcohol rehab is typically between two and three thousand dollars, but there are numerous rehabs that use sliding scales, meaning that they will only charge a person what they can afford based on their current income.

Where do calls go?

Calls to numbers on a specific treatment center listing will be routed to that treatment center. Additional calls will also be forwarded and returned by a quality treatment center within the USA.

Calls to any general helpline (non-facility specific 1-8XX numbers) for your visit will be answered by a licensed drug and alcohol rehab facility, a paid advertiser on DetoxCenters.com.

All calls are private and confidential.
