Alcohol Withdrawal & Why You Shouldn't Detox Alone
Posted By Schick Shadel || Apr 13, 2016
When someone is addicted to alcohol, they actually depend on it for a number of reasons. Unfortunately, if they decide to stop drinking, they go through a stage called withdrawals in which the body displays symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, nausea, mood swings, shakiness, and more. This is because the body is no longer receiving what it is used to and the dependency is being threatened.
Because these symptoms can be difficult to endure, our team at Schick Shadel encourages anyone who wants to stop drinking to not go through this process alone. There are some ways that we can provide treatment to help you deal with the symptoms that come along with withdrawals. This includes monitoring the symptoms, providing medication if necessary, testing for problems that may occur, and sedation if required.
When we provide treatment for withdrawals, we aim to reduce the impact the symptoms have on a patient. We also work to prevent complications that may arise due to the consumption of alcohol and help you avoid relapsing.
There are many people who feel that they can endure withdrawals alone. While it may be possible, it is not recommended because some situations such as depression or seizures — in severe cases — can be very difficult to experience. You should consult with our alcohol detox and rehabilitation center to learn what we can do for you that could ease the symptoms.
