Alcohol withdrawal can be incredibly uncomfortable and medically dangerous. For those seeking at home alcohol detoxification we offer an at home medical alcohol detox program for total elimination of this addictive substance from the body.
Those with an addiction to alcohol have excessive levels of alcohol in their bodies for days, weeks, months or even years. Withdrawal doesn’t necessarily come from a complete elimination of the substance from the body but can occur when the individual who has become addicted decreased alcohol intake. Alcohol withdrawal can cause symptoms including dizziness, vomiting, migraine headaches, insomnia, sweating, moderate to severe increases in blood pressure, tremors or more serious symptoms including seizures, hallucinations and delirium.
Detoxing from alcohol at home
It is extremely important that one does not attempt to detox from alcohol at home without the proper supervision and assistance from a trained medical professional. Patients who have a strong alcohol use history and attempt to stop alcohol on their own can have fatal outcomes.
Symptoms of alcohol withdrawal without proper management
Within the first 6-12 hours the person who is experiencing alcohol withdrawal will experience sweating, shaking, vomiting, insomnia and dizziness. These symptoms are mild yet cause noticeable discomfort. Hours 12-24 may cause moderate to severe symptoms including increased anxiety, increased sweating and total insomnia. This will continue through the fifth day when patients are at serious risk of seizures, fevers, and are prone to hallucinations. These symptoms and the timeline of these symptoms varies for each patient and is in no way a guideline to aid in the timing of obtaining medical help.
