Our Beverly hills addiction doctors provide outpatient alcohol detox and treatment in our office as well as patients home when appropriate and safe. Alcohol detox when performed alone can be very dangerous and requires medical supervision.
The liver is an crucial organ in the human body, filtering approximately 100 gallons of blood through each and every day. During this process, it removes life-threatening toxins and passes on valuable nutrients. The liver is also responsible for maintaining the body’s metabolic rate and help with digestion. Due to this, the human body cannot survive without the liver.
Alcohol consumption in large doses can lead to liver damage. This can vary from minor to life threatening. Typically, liver damage occurs when it is unable to heal itself due to overexposure or repeated abuse. When this occurs, the liver will scar over. These scars prevent the filtration process from working in those areas. If a large portion of this vital organ is scarred, liver failure will occur.
To avoid this life threatening situation, it is wise to enroll into an outpatient substance abuse program. Patients that embark upon this life changing journey at a treatment center, such as My Concierge MD, will be able to receive advanced care for their alcoholism. Our friendly physicians provide customized outpatient rehabilitation plans that fit each patient’s needs.
