Beginning With an Alcohol Detox
The first step of alcohol addiction treatment is breaking free from your chemical dependence on alcohol. In fact, the only way to do that effectively is to stop drinking alcohol completely. When you do so, your body will go into what is known as withdrawal. However, on your own, this can be dangerous. With medical monitoring, you’ll be safe and secure.
After 24 hours, it’s normal to start experiencing uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms peak around 72 hours into alcohol detox and will slowly taper off completely. While detox can be unpleasant, there is no need to suffer unnecessarily.
Clients can access resources that make withdrawal more comfortable in a medical detox facility. Moreover, medical professionals can administer specific non-addictive medications that ease symptoms, encourage sleep, and help you feel more confident about recovery.
