Tips for Finding Alcohol Detox Treatment

Why Do You Need Alcohol Detox Treatment?

Some people can stop drinking on their own and suffer no ill effects after a mild withdrawal stage that includes headaches, nausea, shakiness, anxiety, irritation, or restlessness. If you drink alcohol daily, are a heavy drinker, or have prolonged drinking spells, chances are you have experienced these symptoms at one time or another. The more you drink and the longer you have been drinking, the more severe these withdrawal symptoms can become.

In chronic alcoholism, seizures, convulsions, extreme agitation, delirium tremens or DTs, or hallucinations may occur and these conditions can be dangerous. The death rate from DTs, characterized by confusion, rapid heartbeat, and fever, is estimated from 1% to 5% according to studies by the National Institute of Health on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.

Alcohol detox treatment, under medical supervision, provides a safer way to detox by providing medications and other support to reduce or alleviate the unpleasantness and danger of alcohol withdrawal syndrome.

Your family doctor may be able to help you detox from alcohol, as can many others.

If you have an alcohol use disorder and want to detox safely, you need to undergo alcohol detox treatment in a clean, safe, environment, where clinicians can monitor your withdrawal symptoms and alleviate your suffering as you go through the process.

Chronic alcoholics and those with certain health conditions may require greater access to medical care and these conditions should be made known prior to undergoing treatment.

  • The best way to find an alcohol detox treatment program is to get recommendations from others who have experienced alcohol detox treatment from a particular program.
  • Church ministers and clergy are great sources for referrals and information regarding community resources and alcohol detox treatment programs that fit your needs.
  • Your family physician may be able to provide you with first hand information on alcohol detox treatment programs or they may give recommendations for you if you have any health concerns.
  • The local hospitals are a good source for finding alcohol detox treatment. Alcoholism is a widespread disease and most hospitals are engaged in programs that offer some form of recovery support. Medically assisted alcohol detox treatment is a preferred practice and the hospital should be able to refer you to programs within the area.
  • Local and online support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous can provide you with information, locations, or referrals for alcohol detox treatment.
  • Online searches for various programs can be helpful, but it is important to make sure that these facilities are license and accredited within your state. You can explore facilities and contact those that are most suitable to your needs.
