Frequent, heavy alcohol abuse can lead to physical dependency which causes withdrawal symptoms when attempting to stop drinking.

What is Alcohol Detox Like?
With frequent, long-term alcohol use, the body becomes dependent on alcohol and adjusts normal function to the constant presence of alcohol to counteract its effects. When alcohol is taken away, the body cannot adjust back quickly enough which causes it to go into shock and exhibit withdrawal symptoms, which can range from mild to severe, even being life-threatening. Symptoms can include:
- Tremors or shakes
- Mood changes
- Nausea and vomiting
- Heart palpitations
- Increased blood pressure
- Increased heart rate
- Rapid, abnormal breathing
Detoxing from alcohol is an essential first step toward the recovery process. However, alcohol detox programs at Muse greatly reduce or even eliminate many of these withdrawal symptoms. Our detox program will include medication-assisted treatment, counseling services, and other therapies to ease withdrawals and cravings. You will live in our luxury, non-hospital setting treatment center where our medical team can monitor your vitals around the clock to ensure your safety. They are also available to quickly act in the case of an emergency, giving you and your loved ones peace of mind during this difficult process. Patients can also receive around-the-clock emotional support from our compassionate and caring counselors. Medical detox not only ensures your safety but also reduces feelings of loneliness and anxiety often experienced when detoxing from alcohol alone.
What to Expect During Detox?
At Muse Treatment Center near Garden Grove, you can expect to be greeted by our friendly and caring staff. The first step in our alcohol detox program is a thorough evaluation of your physical and mental health. Clinicians will use this information to create a personalized treatment plan based on what they feel you may experience during the detox process. During the admissions process, staff will inspect your belongings to ensure you did not bring in anything that may endanger you or other residents. After a tour of the facility, you will be checked into your semi-private room where medical staff will monitor your vitals around the clock and administer medications as withdrawal symptoms arise.
Medical staff will place IV fluids to prevent dehydration and to be able to administer medications quickly. Medications that may be part of your detox program include benzodiazepines, anticonvulsants, antipsychotics, Naltrexone to reduce cravings and withdrawals, over-the-counter medications column, and beta blockers to maintain stable heart rate and blood pressure levels.
Patients will be given freshly prepared, nutritious meals and your program may include holistic therapies, such as meditation, to help the body naturally detox. Once your symptoms begin to subside and you feel better, you can begin to participate in individual and group therapy sessions which will address the root cause of addiction. Once alcohol detox is complete, patients can easily transition into an alcohol rehab program where they can learn how to break negative behavioral patterns and acquire healthy coping techniques to manage triggers and cravings.
How Long is Detox?
Every person’s experience with alcohol detox is different. In general, most people will detox within 7 to 10 days and range in severity. Factors such as age, weight, sex, length of alcohol use, the severity of alcohol abuse, the presence of co-occurring disorders, and the use of other substances can all influence how long the body takes to detox. Some people may experience mild, lingering withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, depression, or fatigue for weeks or months later, which is referred to as post-acute withdrawal syndrome (PAWS).
What to expect during alcohol detox is difficult to predict, including how severe and long withdrawal symptoms will be. However, a general alcohol detox timeline may look like this:
- Within 6 to 12 hours after the last drink: mild symptoms such as headaches, nausea, anxiety, and tremors will begin.
- Within 24 hours: people can begin to experience visual, auditory, or tactile hallucinations.
- Within 24 to 72 hours: various symptoms will peak and begin to level off. However, seizure risk is at its highest from 24 to 48 hours after the last drink. Delirium tremens may appear from 48 to 72 hours after the last drink.
- 7 days later: most acute symptoms have resolved.
