What Is Alcohol Detox Like?

When you first arrive at a Manhattan Beach alcohol detox center, you will undergo our rigorous screening process. This entails a physical examination by a doctor and a psychiatric screening. They may ask you questions about your health, your history of drug and alcohol use, and other personal questions, but these are just so that they can understand more about your health needs and what kind of services will work best for you. Your alcohol addiction treatment plan will be personalized and might include mental health care, medications, doctor supervision, counseling, different therapy types, and useful programming. 

Once you have completed your assessment, we will show you to your bed in our detox center. You will move in for the duration of your detox (usually around one week to ten days) so that our doctors and nurses can keep a close watch on any withdrawal symptoms that may come up. You will be in a safe, structured, and comfortable environment, with healthy food, a full-sized bed, and time away from your everyday responsibilities so that you can rest and focus on your own health.

At Resurgence, we are pleased to offer our patients therapy and counseling as needed, along with prescription medications to ease any pain, nausea, and discomfort that may occur. Alcohol detox is not easy, but we will do all we can to ensure you do not experience suffering or dangerous side effects. If you wish, you may choose to detox without medications, and if it is medically safe, we will help you with the same medical care and therapy to ensure you are safe as your body adjusts to the lack of alcohol in your system.

Medications Used During Alcohol Detox

Not everybody will need medication while in alcohol detox, but several options may be available if required. These include:

  • Pain relievers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen help with aches and pains as the body adjusts
  • Muscle relaxants or benzodiazepine medications to help reduce anxiety and relax the body so you can rest
  • Anticonvulsant medications to help prevent seizures during advanced withdrawal
  • Antipsychotics and other psychiatric medications to help with a co-occurring mental health condition

Several medications can be used after detox, during and post-rehab, that can assist with staying sober long-term. These are:

  • Naltrexone – although it is most commonly used for opioid use disorder, this drug can also block the pleasant or relaxing feelings that alcohol causes in the body to make drinking less appealing. Vivitrol is an injectable form of Naltrexone with the same effects
  • Disulfiram is a medication that causes unpleasant sensations when alcohol is ingested, like chest pain, vomiting, blurred vision, confusion, and difficulty breathing. This acts as a negative reinforcement to the act of drinking alcohol
  • Acamprosate – this medication can help patients stay sober after they have completed a detox and rehab program by restoring the balance of chemicals in the brain, reducing the urge to drink, and making sobriety a bit easier

What to Expect When You Detox from Alcohol

Detoxing from alcohol is not often as simple as “having willpower” or “just stopping.” Alcohol use disorder is a complex disease that includes social, emotional, psychological, behavioral, and physical issues that must be addressed in an integrated treatment plan. Medical detox is just the beginning of that plan, and because alcohol changes the brain’s chemistry, detoxing can become a serious medical issue if not overseen by medical professionals. At Resurgence, your health is our number one priority, along with your comfort. Our team will do all we can to help you avoid serious symptoms of withdrawal. You may also begin a dual diagnosis treatment plan if you have been diagnosed with a co-occurring mental health disorder like anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, etc.

Delirium Tremens & Alcohol Detox

Alcohol detox is often accompanied by withdrawal symptoms that can range from mild to severe. Some common mild symptoms include irritability, anxiety, mood swings, sweating, tremors in the hands, nightmares, insomnia, headache, and increased heart rate. In some cases, withdrawal may become more severe, with confusion, agitation, hallucinations, fever, seizures, or delirium tremens. These symptoms can become life-threatening if not cared for by medical professionals, so detoxing in a hospital or medical detox setting is always advisable. There is no way to predict whether you will experience delirium tremens or other severe symptoms, so it is best to be cautious and never quit drinking cold turkey alone.

Alcohol Withdrawal and Detox Timeline

Everybody has a unique experience regarding alcohol withdrawal and detox timelines, but for most people symptoms will begin to show up pretty quickly, within two to six hours, with anxiety, headache, and nausea. You may find it difficult to fall asleep. Between 12 to 48 hours, symptoms will gradually become more severe. At around three days or 72 hours, delirium tremens, hallucinations, and other serious symptoms will appear in some individuals. Medical intervention is often required around this point. Over the next few days, up to two weeks, symptoms will decrease, sleeping will be easier, and you will feel a bit better each day.

Is Medically Assisted Alcohol Detox Covered by Insurance?

Yes, medically assisted alcohol detox may be covered by your insurance. Because of several acts including the Affordable Care Act and the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act, addiction and mental health treatments are considered essential health care and must be covered at least partially by health insurance. Every insurance plan will have its own stipulations regarding what is considered “essential,” as well as the types of care that are paid for, so it is always recommended to look into your individual coverage before starting treatment. Our team is happy to help you figure out whether your medically assisted detox program will be covered, and help you to decipher your insurance plan so you know exactly what to expect when you start treatment. 

How Long Is Detox?

Detox varies from person to person, and so does the timeline. In general, we say detoxing from alcohol can take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks, but for most, it is 7 to 10 days. Our team will never rush you through your detox program, but will instead base it on your own needs and comfort level. Some factors that may affect your detox timeline include:

  • How long you have been abusing alcohol
  • Having a history of heavy drinking or binge drinking
  • Your age
  • Health issues
  • Mental wellness
  • Having a history of delirium tremens or seizures

Post Detox, Transitioning to Inpatient Rehab

After you have completed your detox in our Manhattan Beach alcohol detox center, a stay in inpatient rehab is often recommended. Inpatient rehab takes place in our completely sober, structured treatment center, where you will live, day and night, away from the stress and complications of your everyday life. Inpatient rehab can last anywhere from 30 to 90 days on average, with full days of programming like behavioral therapy, experiential therapy, EMDR, one-on-one therapy, family therapy, group therapy, exercise programs, life skills programs, and holistic healing. You will be surrounded by a supportive community as you gain the recovery skills and relapse prevention tools needed to live a healthy alcohol-free life.

Post Detox Transitioning to Outpatient Rehab

Outpatient rehab is best suited to people with mild addictions and no longer experiencing withdrawal symptoms or cravings, or for people who have completed inpatient treatment and are beginning to transition back into normal life. Resurgence offers several levels of outpatient care that include:

  • Partial hospitalization program (PHP) – living outside of the treatment center but coming in for full days of treatment with strong support as you focus on shifting toward personal responsibility and independent sober living
  • Intensive outpatient program (IOP) – living at home or in a sober living home, returning to work or school, and attending therapy, groups, and other treatments in the mornings, evenings, or weekends
  • Outpatient aftercare – connections to 12-step groups, SMART recovery groups, alumni groups, and other aftercare services designed to help you maintain your recovery long-term
