Top-Rated Alcohol Detox Program for Residents of Irvine
Even though having a drink is something that is widely accepted in our society, alcohol can also cause devastating problems if heavy use of alcohol continues. Over time, you can become physically reliant on the substance which means that when you try to stop, you are quickly met by intense symptoms that could drive you to continue drinking or even lead to serious health concerns.
Alcohol dependence is one of the most dangerous substance addictions in the world when it comes to detox.

What is Alcohol Detox Like?
To get a better understanding of what alcohol detox can be like in its entirety without professional help, we must first understand why withdrawal occurs. What exactly are withdrawal symptoms? Put simply, withdrawal symptoms are what you feel and experience as your body is readjusting to normal function after being reliant on the substance.
With heavy drinking over time, your brain and body begin to change to adjust to always having alcohol present in the system. Eventually, your body will have adjusted so much that when you suddenly take alcohol out of the equation, then there’s an imbalance due to this keyed-up state the body is in. Put in other terms, it’s essentially as if you keep adding weights to one side of someone balancing on a tightrope, having them adjust to the extra weight on the one side and then suddenly taking the weights off causing the tightrope-walker to become unbalanced.
During detox from alcohol alone, you would experience the usual symptoms such as headaches, nightmares, seizures, anxiety, and other symptoms while your body goes through the adjustment phase to normal function again. In alcohol withdrawal, however, there are additional concerns that can be life-threatening known as delirium tremens., If these severe symptoms were to occur then medical assistance would be required immediately.
What our alcohol detox program for residents of Irvine can do for you is help to greatly reduce and manage symptoms within safe parameters so that you are not only much more comfortable but the process of detox is safe. Along with the FDA-approved medications that our alcohol detox program offers, our round-the-clock medical supervision helps to ensure that the health risks involved with alcohol detox are managed safely.
You can expect alcohol detox through Muse Treatment for Irvine residents to be a much easier experience than trying to go it alone. Our staff are understanding and supportive of your needs and will help you to overcome alcohol dependence as comfortably and as safely as possible.
