Just Works

What is Alcohol Detox Like?

Alcohol detox is the first necessary step in overcoming your alcohol addiction and beginning your newfound life in sober living. When you first arrive at our inpatient residential center, you will meet with our onsite doctors and nurses who will gain an understanding of your personal history of alcohol use. Through admission paperwork and assessments, our team will get to know the patterns in which you drink alcohol such as the amount that you consume within one time, the frequency in which you drink alcohol, and how long you have been living with alcohol use disorder. During this time, it is important for our team to learn about any family history with addiction along with any co-occurring disorders that you may be living with. The more specific information that our team has, the better we will be able to create an individualized alcohol detox program that is mindful of your current physical and emotional states to ensure that no further harm is done and you can safely remove the harmful toxins of alcohol from your body without any negative consequences. 

After completing the initial intake process of alcohol detox, you will be able to reside within our medically supervised detox program to begin the first crucial steps toward addiction recovery. Throughout your alcohol detox program, you will be given ongoing support and medical attention as you move through the withdrawal phases of alcohol detox. During this time it is important that you are allowing your body the time it needs to heal within itself to be able to heal physically from alcohol addiction and ultimately allow you to be ready to heal from the emotional and mental addiction that has formed within you. Our team will do what we can through the highest level of medical care and detox processes to keep you feeling comfortable and relaxed as you get the rest and rejuvenation you need to overcome your physical dependence on alcohol. 

Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms

Alcohol is a highly addictive substance that creates strong physical addiction the more it progresses over time. Depending on the severity and longevity of your alcohol dependence, the withdrawal symptoms you experience will range from mild to severe. Alcohol withdrawal symptoms that you may experience can include:

Mild to moderate withdrawal symptoms:

  • Headaches
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea 
  • Increased heart rate 
  • Anxiety 
  • Dramatic mood swings 
  • Insomnia
  • Onset of depression 
  • Nausea 
  • Excessive sweating 
  • Tremors 

In more severe withdrawal symptoms, patients may experience the following side effects that can pose a risk to their overall health and wellbeing if not treated and monitored by medical professionals: 

  • Delirium tremens (DTs)
  • Seizures 
  • Hallucinations either visual, auditory, or tactile 
  • Impaired motor functioning 
  • Extreme confusion 
  • Fever
  • High blood pressure 
  • Extreme agitation 
  • Impaired consciousness 
  • Autonomic hyperactivity including tachycardia, nausea, sweating, trembling or vomiting 

Why Choose a Medical Alcohol Detox Program

Your alcohol addiction is specific and unique to you. While you have thought about quitting drinking for some time, it is hard to predict how your body will react to the sudden change in behavior and know what to expect for alcohol withdrawal symptoms. A medical alcohol detox program provides you with the comfort of knowing that you have onsite, 24/7 medical care that will be readily accessible for you any time you begin to experience unpleasant or uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. The medical team at Resurgence Behavioral Health is highly trained and qualified in supporting patients to overcome withdrawal symptoms whether they are mild or severe while maintaining the need to keep each patient feeling relaxed and at ease so that you can remain focused on your overarching goals to live a life of sobriety. 

How Long Does Alcohol Detox Last?

Each individual patient will experience alcohol detox differently depending on their history of alcohol consumption. This can make it challenging to predict the length of time you will be in alcohol detox. However, most individuals will begin to feel withdrawal effects within 8 hours of their last drink. Typically, individuals begin to overcome the worst of their withdrawal symptoms within a week. 

A timeline of a common alcohol detox program may look like this:

2-8 hours after your last drink

Mild symptoms such as headaches, anxiety, or nausea

Day one

Patients will begin to feel an increase in the severity of withdrawal symptoms with side effects such as disorientation, tremors, or seizures 

Day two

This is typically when the most uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms will begin such as hallucinations  or panic attacks 

Day three to seven

At this time, patients are most at risk for experiencing delirium tremens which has the potential of being life-threatening if not treated and monitored by medical professionals. Throughout the time period, alcohol withdrawal side effects will range throughout each day from mild or moderate symptoms to severe alcohol withdrawal symptoms. 

After day seven

Patients will begin to feel a significant decrease in the severity of withdrawal symptoms and are able to manage mild detox side effects without running the potential of becoming life-threatening. 

How Much Does Alcohol Detox Cost?
