Alcohol addiction is a complex disease that affects all aspects of health. With a tendency to become progressive and chronic, misuse of alcohol essentially poisons the whole body, damaging the liver, stomach, brain, and heart and triggering problems like malnutrition, sexual dysfunction, and vitamin deficiencies. Alarmingly, alcohol abuse has also been linked to an increased risk of certain types of cancers and carries a potential to cause death if continued for long enough.

In addition to the health risks, many other reasons are there to get help for alcoholism in a luxury alcohol treatment centre. If you or a dear one struggles with heavy drinking, you know that life will soon become isolating and destructive for both of you. Hence, joining a rehabilitation centre where you will go through extensive medical interventions, detoxification, and holistic therapies can be the best way out.

The presence of the following signs and symptoms confirm a drinking problem and warrants the need to undertake a detox programme as soon as possible before alcoholism starts affecting life in a negative way.

  • The need to take alcohol to relax, deal with stress, or just to feel “normal”
  • The need to take more and more alcohol to achieve the same level of high
  • Frequent short-term memory losses or blackouts due to heavy drinking
  • Developing withdrawal symptoms, such as depression, insomnia, shakiness, nausea, and mood swings whenever you try to quit
  • Failure to cut back on drinking or quit altogether
  • Drinking alone
  • Lying about the quantity or frequency of alcohol consumption
  • Putting yourself or others in danger while drinking
  • A feeling that alcohol controls your life
  • Issues at work because of hangovers or excessive drinking
  • Legal or financial problems due to alcohol use
  • Troubles in relationships due to drinking habit

Four basic levels of care are usually offered at every alcohol detox centre. These levels include:

  • Outpatient Sessions for medication support, counselling, or both without requiring admission
  • Intensive outpatient or partial hospitalisation for patients with complex needs
  • Residential Programmes for inpatient care in 24/7 medical supervision

A complete assessment of your alcohol programs and complications is required to understand which level of care is right for you. Call us now to book an initial evaluation today.

Withdrawal symptoms of alcohol detox usually begin to surface within one to two hours following the last drink. The most painful of these symptoms typically subside within the first week, while a few milder ones linger on for a bit more. While no exact alcohol detox timeline describes the process for all clients, the schedule mentioned below provides a general idea of what to expect from the process.

Six to Twelve Hours after Last Drink

The initial detox symptoms are usually mild but may quickly worsen with time. Some of these initial withdrawal symptoms include anxiety, headaches, shakiness, nausea and irritability.

Day One

By the end of the first 24 hours of alcohol detoxification, symptoms usually become more severe in intensity. In addition to the effects felt during the first 12 hours of abstinence, additional symptoms may occur, involving seizures, hand tremors, and disorientation.

Day Two

The most painful symptoms of detox that began on day one continue into the second day. As the body actively works on getting rid of alcohol from its system, panic attacks and hallucinations may set in.

Days Three To Seven

For the rest of the week in detox, different types of withdrawal symptoms may come and go, varying from one person to another. This duration also accounts for the time when you are at the highest risk of developing the most life-threatening alcohol detox symptoms, such as delirium tremens.

After One Week

Once you have completed the first week, most of the withdrawal symptoms soon begin to taper off. Some of them do linger on for a few weeks, but these symptoms are usually minor and can be easily treated with alcohol detox medication.

Even after the most life-threatening symptoms have subsided, many people continue to experience post-acute withdrawal syndrome characterised by prolonged symptoms of alcohol detox. These symptoms typically include trouble sleeping, low energy, delayed reflexes, and anxiety and may persist for several months to a year.
