Why Alcohol Detox at Home Can Be Dangerous

When you’re ready to overcome your addiction to alcohol, one of the first things that you need to focus on is putting together a plan to go through the detox process at a center. Several people don’t realize the dangers associated with detoxing from alcohol at home and make the decision to hold off on reaching out to Resurgence Behavioral Health until they are well into the process of DIY detox. The reality is that there are several psychological and physical components associated with detoxing from alcohol on your own.

Common Withdrawal Symptoms to Expect

Although it’s true that there are many mild symptoms that you may experience as you begin to detox from alcohol, there is always the possibility that something more severe may arise. Some common early symptoms of alcohol withdrawal include:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Anxiety
  • Loss of appetite
  • Insomnia

Potential Life-Threatening Withdrawal Symptoms

If you have a severe addiction to alcohol, there is a chance that you may experience something called delirium tremens. There are several symptoms associated with this condition including:

  • Confusion
  • Shakiness
  • Agitation
  • Delusions
  • Increased body temperature
  • Increased heart rate

There is also the possibility that you may suffer from a life-altering or life-threatening seizure which is just another reason why you should always be in a medical setting as you begin to navigate through the process of your alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
