What is Alcohol Detox Like?
Alcohol withdrawal is a serious condition. The severity of alcohol dependence and the life-threatening nature of it is part of the reason why alcohol addiction is considered to be the most dangerous out of all of the commonly abused substances in the world.
To better understand what alcohol detox is like, we’ll look at what symptoms you would likely experience if you tried to detox without any help. It’s important to note that detox from alcohol alone is never advised because of the dangers involved and you should always seek medical assistance to overcome alcohol dependence.
The list of common alcohol withdrawal symptoms includes depression, mood swings, unclear thinking, shakiness, anxiety, fatigue, headaches, sweating, pale skin, appetite loss, insomnia, tremors, vomiting, and nausea. You may experience only a portion of these common withdrawal symptoms.
The most severe and problematic withdrawal symptoms include fever, seizures, agitation, confusion, and hallucinations. These symptoms are a result of a serious form of alcohol withdrawal known as delirium tremens. If these symptoms set in, which can happen without warning very suddenly, then immediate medical assistance is required to prevent grave outcomes.
In our alcohol detox program for Bakersfield residents, we can drastically change the alcohol withdrawal experience. Instead of feeling the full strength of your withdrawal symptoms, the medications that we can provide you with to treat your symptoms will help to keep you comfortable through the process. Furthermore, you will have medical support through the process of alcohol detox to ensure that your health remains optimal and that severe symptoms such as delirium tremens don’t cause life-threatening situations.
What to Expect During Detox?
In our alcohol detox program for residents of Bakersfield, you can expect to gain significant support during your recovery. Our rehab will help you to easily overcome your alcohol withdrawal symptoms and more importantly, ensure that your detox is safe.
You can expect to be given medications throughout the withdrawal process. We will be able to provide you with over-the-counter medication as well as prescribed medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration for alcohol dependence treatment. These medications will make a huge difference because as you have symptoms such as tremors, nausea, or anxiety, our healthcare professionals will be able to quickly and effectively treat them.
You can expect to be monitored during the entire process as an inpatient. We will explore your current health and prior medical conditions because they can have a significant effect on the severity of the symptoms that you experience and help us to ensure that there are no surprises during your detox.
After your alcohol detox program for Bakersfield residents, you can expect to have access to our comprehensive alcohol addiction treatment services. Detox is not enough to treat the true causes of your addiction. It may be that you have an untreated mental health disorder or trauma from your past that is behind your substance alcohol abuse. At Muse, you will be able to receive professional treatment to help you to heal and overcome the underlying causes of your addiction so that long-term sobriety becomes possible.
How Long is Detox?
Alcohol detox length varies based on how severe your alcohol abuse was and personal factors such as your health. Typical alcohol detoxification takes roughly 5 to 7 days. The more severe your alcohol dependence combined with personal health factors, the longer it usually takes to get through detox. In some cases, it may take up to 10 days before your alcohol detox program can be concluded.
Your symptoms can start within 6 to 12 hours from the last drink you had. While the starting symptoms may be mild, they quickly intensify until around the third day when they peak. Around the third day of detox is also when delirium tremens will start if you experience them – they occur in roughly 2 to 5 percent of cases. By the end of your detox, around the fifth to the seventh day, you’ll feel much better as your symptoms fade and your thinking and health improves.
