However, in our alcohol detox program for Santa Ana residents, alcohol withdrawal is much easier to get through. Instead of feeling overwhelmed by the symptoms, you will feel more comfortable as our healthcare workers provide you with medication through the process.
At Muse, we understand that you may be stressed and concerned about stopping alcohol use. You will quickly feel more comfortable when entering our alcohol detox program as our staff members work to make you feel at home and cared for. What is usually an intense experience is made much safer and easier in our alcohol detox program for Santa Ana residents.
What to Expect During Detox?
Alcohol withdrawal can be so severe that you should never try and quit drinking alone if you have become physically reliant on alcohol. The most severe withdrawal symptoms, delirium tremens (DTs), can happen very suddenly and it’s difficult to predict who will have them. Therefore, you should always be under medical supervision if you plan to quit drinking if you have a reliance on the substance.
The common withdrawal symptoms from alcohol that you can expect include heavy sweating, headaches, nausea and vomiting, depression, anxiety, cravings, mood swings, insomnia, irritability, and tremors in your hands. These symptoms can be mild to severe. In some cases, you may also have DTs which include a variety of symptoms such as confusion, rapid heart rate, fever, seizures, and hallucinations.
In our alcohol detox program for Santa Ana residents, the common symptoms of withdrawal that you will likely experience can be safely managed. Through medications such as benzodiazepines, barbiturates, and anticonvulsants, we are able to manage your symptoms so that you don’t feel overwhelmed. The medications can work on the same systems in the body that alcohol did, allowing you to recover at a safer pace and avoid many of the symptoms that make quitting alcohol difficult and dangerous.
You can expect to have medical support during the entire process. If necessary, our healthcare workers can provide you with medication and fluids through an IV drip, sedate you if symptoms become too intense, and monitor your blood pressure, heart rate, and body temperature to ensure that you remain healthy through the process of detox.
How Long is Detox?
The length of alcohol detox can be influenced by personal factors such as how long you’ve been drinking heavily, how much you drank on a daily basis, your current state of health, and if there are other symptoms that you’re dealing with such as from other mental health disorders. You can expect a normal alcohol detox to take about a week to complete.
The first stage of alcohol withdrawal is when you’ll experience many of the mild symptoms that set in within hours of stopping. Within about 8 hours, you will start to feel anxiety, nausea, and other mild symptoms. After about 24 hours and up to about 72 hours, the symptoms that you experience will start to intensify until they reach their peak intensity. This is where the medications that we provide will be invaluable.
DTs, if they do occur, usually start after about 2-3 days, when your symptoms are reaching their peak. Of course, in our alcohol detox program for Santa Ana residents, you won’t need to worry whether or not you’ll have DTs because we can safely manage it.
With detox taking roughly 5 to 7 days to complete and as long as 10 days for some people, you can expect your alcohol detox to be done fairly quickly. After detox, using the momentum that you’ve built to continue with your recovery is important. At Muse, we offer many affordable treatment programs in both an inpatient and outpatient setting. These programs will help to treat your underlying causes of addiction and provide you with a safe space to heal from issues of your past.
