Alcohol Detox – First Step to Sober Success

It does not matter if you are a heavy drinker or a social drinker, the first step of the process towards recovery from alcohol addiction is always the same. The detox process is first thing you do when you come to us. But what is detox and what does it mean for you?

When you are a full-time drinker, and you drink alcohol every day, your body becomes accustomed to this. Over time, alcohol becomes a necessary component in your body and brain. Your brain will feel foggy without it, while your body will experience physical symptoms if it lacks alcohol. Detox (short for detoxification) allows you to purge the alcohol from your body and brain. Only once you have gone through the detoxification for alcohol process, can you start to recover from drinking too much.

First Steps To Sober Success

Normally, a light daily drinker might be able to go through detox alone and at home. They might experience the unpleasant symptoms of alcohol withdrawal, but otherwise should be fine to go cold turkey. However, heavy daily drinkers, and those who have been alcoholics for a long time, will experience severe alcohol withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms are so intense that it is better to detox with the help of a medical facility and their staff.

Some of the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal experienced during detox are as follows:

  • Intense Shaking – the tremor can start anything from a few hours after your last drink and can last for a few weeks. Most people who through alcohol withdrawal experience tremors up to 72 hours after their last drink.
  • Sweating – expect to go through sweats too. These symptoms are your body trying to convince you that it cannot operate properly without the alcohol.
  • Nausea and diarrhoea – your stomach, which is used to large amounts of alcohol, will misbehave without it.
  • Chills, aches and pains, other mild physical symptoms – the detox process will enlighten you as to how much control alcohol has had for every fibre of your being. It might seem not worth it but giving up alcohol forever is the healthiest thing someone with an alcohol addiction can do.
  • Hallucinations – on the other end of the scale, drank alcohol for many years may suffer from hallucinations when it finally leaves their system.

There is one giant reason we wanted to get help as an alcoholic. When you quit drinking on your own, heart failure is a very real possibility. Heart failure is the main reason we encourage heavy, long-term drinkers towards assisted detox in a specialised facility. There are horror stories all over the world about heavy drinkers who died trying to get clean. We cannot emphasise this enough. Stopping drinking can kill you if it is not done in the correct manner.

Let’s talk about how Verve Healthcare provides first class alcohol detox services for a price that most of us can afford.

Top Rated Supervised Alcohol Detox, with Verve Healthcare

When you come to us to quit drinking, you will be welcomed with open arms. Once you are settled in to your very own ensuite room, you will be shown the delightful and stylish amenities located within our alcohol rehab centre.

These medications will manage your alcohol withdrawal symptoms while you recover.

Stop Drinking with Verve Healthcare

For the next few days, the recovery team will be on hand, should you need any help or attention. You will have regular visits with your consultant, engage in group therapies when you are ready, and will have appointments with an alcohol cessation counsellor. Together, these components will give you the mental endurance needed to outlast the worst of those withdrawal symptoms.

When you are finished with detox, you will have officially quit drinking. You are still addicted to alcohol – but it is no longer in your body. This is arguably the worst part of recovery but if you wait it out, time will minimise those symptoms until they no longer bother you at all.

Once alcohol detox is finished, you will have stopped drinking. What you do next will determine whether or not you manage to quit drinking for good. We suggest you stay in our  facility to complete your recovery in comfort and style, utilizing our full array of staff and services to stay away from alcohol.

In fact, we believe that affordability should come first, so that each guest can enjoy rehab for alcoholism in as relaxed, as beautiful, and as invigorating a setting as possible.

When it comes to recovery from alcohol addictions, each person should have the same level of high quality treatment as the next. It is for this reason the Verve Healthcare facilities were created, and it is from this principle that we continue to grow.
