Alcohol Detoxification Is The Way To Get Rid Of Alcohol Dependency

For those with alcohol dependence, detoxification can be one of the first steps to a new lifestyle. Alcohol detoxification is an immediate end of alcohol consumptionOne40 Recovery Community; in some cases, cross-tolerant drugs are substituted to prevent withdrawal symptoms under the medical supervision of a treatment centres Doctors & Nurses and where needed Consultant Psychiatrists. Over the length of a detox programme the toxic substances from your body will comfortably diminish.

The length and manner of alcohol detoxification depends on your age, history of alcohol intake, and medical status. For instance, if you are a binge drinker and you seek treatment just a week after your latest binge, you may not be required to undergo detox before your start treatment. If you have been consistently drinking for a long time, however, detox may be recommended to prevent or alleviate withdrawal symptoms.

Sweating, tremors, an overall feeling of being sick, and craving for alcohol are among the symptoms associated with alcohol withdrawal WITHOUT a medically supervised detox plan.  Some may experience delirium and convulsions or seizures, too. Reduced and tolerable withdrawal symptoms under treatment centre supervision usually last from five to seven days, but it may take longer for your craving for alcohol to stop. You will be fully supported in the close care of your counselling team during these difficult moments but they will always pass and the ability to learn from your thoughts and feelings rather than use substances to self medicate these cravings will leave you feeling empowered and revived.

Alcohol detoxification is best done in a treatment facility and administered by a qualified physician who specialises in alcohol addiction and dependence. Benzodiazepines may be given by the doctor for a comfortable transition to an alcohol-free lifestyle. The dosage may start high, but it will gradually be reduced over the next five to seven days. However, the doctor may prefer to give vitamins instead. Vitamin B1 may help prevent withdrawal symptoms. In-patient and residential treatments are often recommended when you need to undergo alcohol detoxification. That way, you can be monitored 24/7 by a qualified staff and the doctor, especially when you are experiencing difficult withdrawal symptoms.
