Best Alcohol Detox Treatment Center in Oklahoma

Quitting alcohol isn’t just as easy as one day deciding to stop. While it may become clear that you need to stop drinking because of the problems that it’s led to in your life, when you stop drinking, you will have several withdrawal symptoms to contend with once you stop if you have formed a physical reliance on alcohol.

To help, we offer the best alcohol detox treatment center in Oklahoma which can make the process of detox considerably easier. It’s important that everyone who has an addiction to alcohol seek medical advice before quitting because alcohol withdrawal symptoms can become dangerous if not treated. Moreover, the symptoms of withdrawal including cravings can make a person seek relief by drinking more, pushing back their progress, and potentially leading to health issues due to drinking too much because of a lowered tolerance.

Our alcohol rehab in Oklahoma can carefully help you through your alcohol withdrawal symptoms, managing and reducing them thanks to the various medications that we can provide. Before quitting alcohol, contact Resurgence so that we can help you to go through your alcohol detox safely.

What to Expect During Detox

In our alcohol detox program for residents of Oklahoma, you can expect a fairly pain-free experience compared to trying to detox alone. As mentioned, alcohol withdrawal symptoms can be intense and easily overwhelming if the symptoms aren’t managed with medication.

Among the common alcohol withdrawal symptoms include nightmares, insomnia, mood swings, nervousness, anxiety, fatigue, depression, irritability, and foggy thinking. Other symptoms that may be experienced include headaches, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, clammy skin, rapid heart rate, tremors in the hands, and paleness.

Delirium tremens, which are the most severe form of alcohol withdrawal, include symptoms such as seizures, agitation, fever, confusion, and hallucinations. While delirium tremens only happens in about 2 to 5 percent of cases, they are difficult to predict, and therefore to detox safely from severe alcohol dependence, professional help is a must. 

You can expect to start with your detox program as soon as you stop drinking. You will be given medications such as benzodiazepines (Valium, Librium, etc.), barbiturates if you are not responsive to benzos, and anticonvulsant medications such as Depakote and Neurontin.

These medications will reduce your cravings and symptoms, and ultimately help to manage the situation so that delirium tremens don’t become a problem and you are able to get through detox without being overwhelmed.

How Long Does Detox Last?

Alcohol detox does not take that long considering that alcohol abuse may have been carrying on for years. The process usually takes about a week to complete (5 to 7 days). You may begin to experience mild symptoms after about 6 to 12 hours and by the second to the third day of alcohol detox, you’ll experience the peak of your symptoms.

By the fifth to the seventh day of detox, you’ll be in a much clearer state of mind and your body will feel like it just overcame an illness. Some people may have persistent psychological symptoms such as depression that may linger after a week of detox, in which case we can explore the causes of it and potentially provide you with medication to help maintain your sobriety and brain function.

What Happens After Alcohol Detox?

Alcohol withdrawal symptoms are the result of your body trying to function in an adjusted state due to it becoming used to alcohol over time. Constant alcohol consumption leads to your body changing to accommodate the alcohol in your system, and the balance between your GABA and glutamate system changes. Once your body is used to alcohol, it then requires it to continue to maintain this new balance that is created to counteract the alcohol in your system. This is also what leads to tolerance.

During detox, your body has the chance to return to normal function because alcohol is no longer in your system the whole time and while our alcohol detox program in Oklahoma helps you to transition comfortably through this process, it doesn’t treat the reason why you abused alcohol.

After you complete your substance abuse treatment in Oklahoma, if you went through further treatment, you would be able to overcome the reasons behind your substance abuse. It may be that you have an anxiety disorder and alcohol helps you to manage your symptoms. Without further treatment, it may be difficult to sustain your recovery and not relapse again.

Alcohol detox treats chemical dependence whereas alcohol addiction treatment treats the causes of your addiction and provides you with the tools to overcome it. Our alcohol detox center also provides a wide range of alcohol addiction treatment programs that are personalized to fit each person’s unique needs.

Once you’ve broken your alcohol dependence, you’ll be in a clearer frame of mind, allowing you to work on the causes of your addiction with our caseworkers and healthcare professionals. Addiction causes generally fall into three categories which are development, environment, and biology. Your biological causes account for roughly half of all of your addiction risk and include things that you are born with and mental health disorders that may be affecting your substance abuse.

Your alcohol detox program can be a part of a larger addiction treatment program that starts with detox and then moves to evidence-based behavioral therapy and holistic treatments. Behavioral therapy will be the key to your success as it helps you to be motivated, improve your coping skills, heal from the things in your past, and transform your behaviors and thinking so that you can create an alcohol-free life.

Holistic treatment refers to the programs that we offer that help you with your overall quality of life. This can include programs such as vocational training and other areas that may not seem related to your addiction but if they are improved, then your long-term recovery is also improved.

Resurgence Behavioral Health is the best alcohol detox and treatment center in Oklahoma, and with our caring support and expert guidance, we can help you to stop drinking so that you can take back control of your life again. Alcohol use disorder is a debilitating mental health disorder but it doesn’t have to be in the driver seat of your life.
