Top-Rated Alcohol Detox Program for Residents of San Antonio

You may have been told about the dangers of quitting alcohol after becoming physically addicted or experienced the symptoms yourself. When your body becomes reliant on alcohol, it can not only be difficult to deal with the symptoms unaided, but some of the symptoms may lead to a life-threatening situation. Alcohol withdrawal symptoms tend to be intense and can prevent a person from stopping their alcohol abuse even when the desire and need to stop is clear.

Through our top-rated alcohol detox program for residents of San Antonio, the help you need to safely and comfortably get through withdrawal symptoms can be given. Resurgence has accredited alcohol detox programs that are the best way to break a physical dependence on alcohol. We also provide extensive addiction treatment programs once you’ve finished detox that will help you to prevent relapse and break free from the underlying causes of alcohol addiction.

What is Alcohol Detox Like?

At Resurgence, we make your time with us as comfortable and stress-free as possible. There will be no judgment because our healthcare professionals understand the difficulties that people with alcohol addiction face and that oftentimes, the person who wants to quit the most is the person abusing alcohol. Our alcohol rehab center focuses on healing, support, and prosperity.

Usually, the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal are overwhelming when professional help isn’t used. Some of the most common symptoms that people experience include foggy thinking, anxiety, nightmares, depression, mood swings, fatigue, shakiness, headaches, clammy skin, insomnia, vomiting, nausea, rapid heart rate, tremors, and a loss of appetite.

Many of these symptoms of withdrawal are expected but there are even more severe symptoms that are known as delirium tremens or DTs. The symptoms of DTs include agitation, confusion, fever, seizures, and hallucinations. If DTs are quickly treated, there’s a chance that they can be life-threatening.

In our alcohol detox program for residents of San Antonio, however, alcohol detox is much easier and safer. We are able to use FDA-approved medication in our treatment of alcohol use disorder so that symptoms don’t become too much to handle or dangerous to your health. In our alcohol detox program, you can expect to have a comfortable experience surrounded by people who care about your wellbeing.

What to Expect During Detox

Alcohol withdrawal symptoms originate from your body trying to readjust the way that it functions. Heavy alcohol use that causes alcohol dependence also causes your body to change and with this new change, your body starts to rely on alcohol to function. Detox is about giving your body time to recover and return to normal function and since alcohol withdrawal symptoms can be dangerously intense, medication helps to reduce your symptoms and manage them so that you remain safe during the process.

You can expect to be given medication shortly after starting your alcohol detox. Symptoms tend to start in as little as 6 hours but may take 12 to 24 hours to truly start. By the third day, symptoms usually peak but this peak can happen sooner in some cases.

By monitoring your progress in detox, we are able to provide you with medications such as benzodiazepines (Valium, Librium, and more), anticonvulsants, and barbiturates should you be resistant to benzos. These medications will greatly reduce the symptoms that you experience and keep you comfortable. They also help to prevent DTs from occurring because your body has an easier time adjusting to an alcohol-free state.

While alcohol detox is a crucial treatment for early recovery from alcohol addiction, it doesn’t treat the issues that caused your addiction. This means that if you were to only go through an alcohol detox program, then there is still a considerable risk of relapse because the causes of your alcohol abuse are still present.

To overcome addiction entirely, you will need to partake in further treatments and therapies in our alcohol or couples rehab so that you can heal from things like trauma and overcome the various causes of your addiction that may lie in your biology, development, or environment. Resurgence can help you with every aspect of your long-term recovery from alcohol addiction.

How Long is Detox?

Generally, alcohol detox takes about 5 to 7 days to complete, but this time can be increased depending on your situation such as how much you drank regularly, how long it’s been going on, and other factors such as your health. Most symptoms start within the first day of detox and will peak after about 2 to 3 days have passed. Once you’ve made it through this peak, your symptoms will continue to dissipate until you feel ready to finish your detox.
