Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms

Withdrawal symptoms can range from mild irritations to severe symptoms that may cause health issues during alcohol detox. It’s important to be able to recognize these symptoms so the proper support can be found. Some of the withdrawal symptoms associated with alcohol include:

  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Vomiting
  • Sweating
  • Shaking
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety

More severe withdrawal symptoms include:

  • High blood pressure
  • Elevated heart rate
  • Seizures
  • Hallucinations
  • Delirium tremens

Delirium tremens is a severe form of alcohol withdrawal that confuses brain activity. If not properly treated, the condition can be life-threatening. During this period, you may experience sweating, hallucinations, and seizures. The condition can last for up to eight days after your last drink.

Overall, withdrawal symptoms last between three and 14 days, depending on the circumstances of your condition. Anxiety, depression, and cravings may linger after all other alcohol withdrawal symptoms have faded. For this reason, you need to continue your medical detox program and enter rehab once the initial stage of recovery is complete.

What We Offer at Our Alcohol Detox Center

Detox is the first step in your recovery from alcohol addiction. We provide services and programs to help you transition into your next step, which is rehab. Our services include:

  • Round-the-Clock Care: When your alcohol withdrawal symptoms are at their worst, you need medical professionals you can count on to be there. Our treatment specialists are on-call 24-7, ready to help when you need it the most. We take care of your most urgent needs.
  • Medication Treatment and Management: Alcohol withdrawal can produce severe pain and discomfort for one to two weeks. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) can ease the pain and control your cravings so that you do not relapse. MAT can also block the euphoric effects of alcohol or cause an adverse reaction if you drink alcohol after taking the medication.
  • Individual One-on-On Counseling: Therapy can help you deal with the emotional effects of withdrawal symptoms and work through mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, or PTSD. Treatment may include cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, or other forms of counseling in both individual and group settings.
  • Emergency Services: You may not have access to immediate medical treatment if you detox at home and have an emergency. Due to the possible severity of alcohol withdrawal, our alcohol detox program includes emergency treatment services. A fully licensed medical staff is on-hand to provide treatment if you have a medical emergency.

Once you complete your alcohol detox, you will be physically and emotionally ready to enter rehab. Alcohol rehab allows you to continue your treatment, utilizing evidence-based and holistic therapy, as well as aftercare.
