Top-Rated Alcohol Detox Program in Culver City
Heavy drinking is defined as drinking more than 4 drinks in a day and 14 in the week for men and 3 drinks a day and 7 drinks per week for women. When heavy drinking continues for a period, then you open yourself up to forming an alcohol dependence. Alcohol dependence is different from alcohol addiction in that dependence refers to the physical reliance your body has on alcohol, leading to various withdrawal symptoms and a high tolerance level.
When alcohol reliance forms and the person tries to stop drinking, withdrawal symptoms set in slowly at first and then intensifying within about 3 days. These symptoms are intense and in the case of alcohol, withdrawal symptoms can be so severe that they can cause death. Alcohol dependence is a serious concern that should be dealt with as soon as possible.

Professional help from an accredited detox center such as Muse is key to overcoming alcohol dependence because the severe, life-threatening symptoms can come on without warning and very suddenly.
What is Alcohol Detox Like?
If you’ve tried to stop drinking cold turkey by yourself, then you will know how intense your withdrawal symptoms can become. Out of all of the different withdrawal symptoms that you can have from drugs, alcohol is the worst one because of how dangerous it can be to your health. Usually, alcohol detox alone is not only dangerous but also extremely difficult to complete.

What to Expect During Detox?
Your body needs time to recover from alcohol dependence. Once you stop drinking, your body will need to adjust back to normal function again after having adapted to the presence of alcohol in your system on a regular basis. A tolerance forms to alcohol because your body is starting to adjust to alcohol, lessening the effect it has but eventually, your body will only be able to operate in this adjusted state by consuming more alcohol. This causes a vicious cycle.
Some of the common symptoms of alcohol withdrawal include fatigue, nightmares, insomnia, depression, mood swings, anxiety, headaches, rapid heart rate, cravings, clammy skin, vomiting and nausea, and tremors in the hands. You may experience some or all of the symptoms.
The severe form of alcohol withdrawal, called delirium tremens, is a major concern. While it only occurs in about 5 percent of people recovering from alcohol dependence, it happens with little or no warning and once it sets in, medical aid is required. Symptoms include seizures, fever, agitation, hallucinations, and confusion.
While the symptoms may be overwhelming if you tried to detox from alcohol alone, in our alcohol detox program in Culver City, your symptoms can be controlled so that you are safe and feel as little discomfort as possible. This is made possible by the medications that we can give you during your detox program. We can treat your symptoms so that you never feel the full extent of them and more importantly, manage your symptoms so that they never become life-threatening.
How Long is Detox?
An alcohol detox program that we offer at Muse Treatment and Recovery Center in Culver City can take up to 10 days to complete in the most severe cases. In general, alcohol detox can last between 5 to 7 days. The start of your symptoms happens within the first 12 to 24 hours and once they set in, they will continue to become more intense until they peak at roughly the third day of your detox.
After the peak of your symptoms, you can expect to start feeling better fairly quickly with days 5 to 7 marking the end of your symptoms and your detox program. From here, it’s important to use the momentum to continue with your recovery through the various treatment programs that we offer in our rehab. While a detox program treats alcohol dependence, treatment, therapy, and long-term management is required to overcome an addiction and not succumb to triggers in your future.
