What is Alcohol Detox Like?

If a person were to try and detox from alcohol cold turkey by themselves, then there is significant risk involved as well as many intense withdrawal symptoms to deal with. Since alcohol withdrawal symptoms, specifically delirium tremens (DTs), can be fatal if not treated immediately, you should never try to stop drinking alcohol without the help of professional treatment programs.

Severe alcohol dependence will likely require an inpatient setting to treat so that we can monitor your health as your progress through detox. Our rehab facility is an ideal recovery space where you can be looked after as you go through alcohol withdrawal symptoms.

As you start your alcohol detox program, you will be met with the initial withdrawal symptoms in just a matter of hours. Once your symptoms start, our healthcare team will administer medications that will be suitable for the symptoms that you are experiencing. You will be constantly monitored day and night to ensure that your health is safely maintained and so that the symptoms you experience can be effectively treated through our FDA-approved medications and possibly OTC medications.

What is usually an overwhelming experience will be far easier to deal with in our alcohol detox program for Palo Alto residents. Our team of healthcare workers and staff members will be there for you during the entire process. Our healing and stress-free environment is the best place to recover from alcohol withdrawal symptoms.

What to Expect During Detox?

Alcohol withdrawal symptoms are caused by moderate to severe alcohol dependence. Your body essentially becomes used to alcohol as it adjusts the way it functions. The problem comes in when you suddenly stop drinking and the altered state that your body is in where it relies on alcohol to be present is suddenly changed. Your body has no choice but to restore normal function between your GABA and glutamate systems.

If you were to not receive professional help for alcohol detox, then you could expect to have a range of symptoms including mood swings, fatigue, depression, anxiety, irritability, shakiness, headaches, rapid heart rate, tremors in the hands, and other parts of the body, insomnia, appetite loss, nausea, and vomiting. These symptoms will start off mild but then become more intense as detox progresses.

The most severe form of alcohol withdrawal is a condition called delirium tremens or DTs. While they don’t always occur, it is also very difficult to predict. The symptoms may include seizures, confusion, fever, agitation, and hallucinations. DTs can be life-threatening.

In our alcohol detox for Palo Alto residents, the usual symptoms of withdrawal from alcohol can be safely managed. You’ll experience reduced symptoms as well as a reduction in the intensity of symptoms that you do feel. You can also expect to be monitored during the detox process in our inpatient or couples rehab programs.

How Long is Detox?

The length of alcohol detox tends to be around a week (5 to 7 days). The start of detox can be within just 6 hours as the first symptoms start. These symptoms will intensify as time passes until they peak which can take between 1 and 3 days. After a period of 5 to 7 days, most people will be done with their detox but it may take closer to 10 days for some people to finish their alcohol detox.

It’s important to note that after the week of detox, addiction treatment and therapy should be the next step. Detox isn’t a cure for addiction but the behavioral therapy, counseling, and holistic treatments that we provide at Resurgence can help you to manage your addiction so that relapse can be prevented and your overall wellbeing improved. Treating addiction is a long-term process and with our help, you can quit drinking for good.
