The cleansing of your body to break physical dependence on alcohol is the first step in recovery from alcohol addiction.

At our top-rated alcohol detox program for residents of Austin, you will find the medical support needed to safely detox from alcohol.

What is Alcohol Detox Like?
Muse Treatment and Recovery Center is a rehab that is ideal for healing and recovery. Our alcohol detox program for residents of Austin can help you to feel at ease as soon as you walk through the doors because you’ll feel welcomed and relaxed by our healing environment. The nervousness that you might have about alcohol detox will quickly fade as we help you to get comfortable as you prepare for the week-long detox program ahead of you.
What you’d usually experience during withdrawal from alcohol is a series of symptoms that will start off as mild but then become more intense as your detox reaches the third day and your symptoms reach their peak. It would normally be a situation where you’ll feel increasingly overwhelmed by your craving for alcohol and other withdrawal symptoms. However, in our alcohol detox program for Austin residents, the situation will be far more manageable.
We will provide you with medications as your symptoms begin. For example, since alcohol withdrawal will cause symptoms of anxiety, you will be given medications such as benzodiazepines which are drugs used to treat anxiety and prevent seizures. The medication works on the same systems as alcohol and therefore helps you to slowly wean off alcohol at a safer speed.
During the entire process, our dedicated healthcare workers will be by your side monitoring your health. They will be paying careful attention to your heart rate, body temperature, and hydration levels among other things so that the appropriate actions can be taken immediately to ensure that you have a safe recovery from alcohol withdrawal.
What to Expect During Detox?
Alcohol detox is about helping to get your body back to normal working function after it has become used to the presence of alcohol and adapted its function as such. You can expect to go through this process of normalization in our alcohol detox program but with the added assistance of medication approved by the FDA for alcohol withdrawal treatment. You’ll also have the added safety that our healthcare professionals bring because without medical supervision, alcohol detox can have fatal outcomes.
The symptoms that are commonly expected during alcohol detox include depression, fatigue, anxiety, mood swings, nightmares, headaches, vomiting, nausea, insomnia, tremors in the hands, and a loss of appetite. You will have some or all of the symptoms during your withdrawal.
In about 5 percent of cases of alcohol withdrawal, a condition referred to as delirium tremens (DTs) can set in. It is by far the worst of the potential symptoms that you could experience and it can come on very suddenly. Symptoms include seizures, extreme confusion, fever, and intense hallucinations that when coupled with confusion can be a significant problem. The possibility of DTs is why it’s so important to seek professional help with alcohol detox.
Of course, with our help in our medical detox program for Austin residents, many of the symptoms that you’d normally expect can be managed to the point where you are much more comfortable and most importantly, safe.
How Long is Detox?
The length of your alcohol detox will vary from another person because of personal factors. The way your body reacts and the severity of your alcohol abuse will affect how long you might need to detox. In general, you can expect your detox to last between 5 and 7 days.
Your symptoms will start to set in after roughly 6 to 12 hours and continue to increase in their intensity until about 72 hours when they reach their peak intensity. You’ll slowly start to feel better as you near day 5 and if by day 5 you don’t feel well enough to end your medical detox, then another 2 days should help your body to normalize its function.
