Top-Rated Alcohol Detox Program for Residents of Newport Beach
Alcohol can be a devastating substance in a person’s life. Many of us have a drink from time to time, but even casual drinking can turn into consistent heavy drinking which eventually ends up having a significant impact on your body. Over time, a person’s body becomes reliant on alcohol and this alcohol dependence is a serious medical condition that requires professional help to resolve.
Through our top-rated alcohol detox program for residents of Newport Beach, you can find the professional help needed to safely recover from alcohol dependence. An estimated 14.8 million Americans suffer from alcohol addiction making alcohol abuse a widespread problem. However, you don’t have to struggle with the condition alone; our alcohol detox program can help you through the crucial early stages of recovery.
Unlike many drugs such as heroin or cocaine, a physical addiction to alcohol can be life-threatening when you abruptly stop drinking. The withdrawal symptoms can be so severe in some cases that medical assistance through detox is required. Our alcohol detox program, or medical detox, allows you to safely recover while also helping to make you comfortable through the process.
What is Alcohol Detox Like?
It’s important to never underestimate the alcohol withdrawal symptoms that you might have during detox. Unaided, you can expect to have a range of withdrawal symptoms, many of which you’ve likely experienced before in times where you didn’t drink for around 6 to 12 hours.
Among the common symptoms of alcohol withdrawal are symptoms such as nightmares, foggy thinking, fatigue, anxiety, depression, irritability, and mood swings. These are some of the first symptoms that tend to start after about 8 hours.
Other symptoms that you may experience include headaches, an inability to feel pleasure, vomiting and nausea, insomnia, sweating, rapid heart rate, and tremors. As your symptoms begin to peak after 1 to 3 days of not drinking, you may experience the most severe form of alcohol withdrawal known as delirium tremens which may come on very suddenly and unpredictably.
Symptoms of delirium tremens include severe confusion coupled with hallucination, agitation, seizures, and fever. Delirium tremens is the most dangerous alcohol withdrawal symptoms and should they occur, then medical attention is required.
In our alcohol detox for Newport Beach residents, the experience you’ll have is a stark contrast to trying to detox alone. Instead of facing all of the symptoms of withdrawal alone, you’ll be aided by medication that will reduce your symptoms and cravings and ultimately help you to safely recover. As your alcohol detox progresses, you’ll be under constant supervision by our healthcare workers to ensure that the more severe symptoms don’t cause medical problems.
We will monitor your blood pressure, heart rate, and body temperature to ensure that they remain within safe levels. If you struggle to drink enough water or medications can’t be administered orally, then we can make sure that you are receiving the medication and fluids your body needs through an IV drip.
Altogether, an alcohol detox through our program for residents of Newport Beach is a much safer and more comfortable experience than if you were to detox alone – which is never recommended because it can be life-threatening.

How Long is Detox?
