Seattle Alcohol Detox Program

Effective & Medically Safe Alcohol Detoxification

Breaking an addiction to alcohol may begin with detoxification, which is the process of administering medical treatment to a patient undergoing withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal is the brain and body’s response to sudden alcohol deprivation after years of consumption. Symptoms of withdrawal are varied, but can be both emotional and physical.

Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms

Alcohol detoxification in particular can include symptoms such as

  • Fevers
  • Seizures
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Paleness of the skin

Chemical dependency is more than a craving or a psychological desire for a substance, at least initially. Alcohol addiction fosters a very physiological need for alcohol in the body, and as a result, removing alcohol from the equation puts the body through dangerous but necessary stresses.

Due to the seriousness of alcohol detoxification, it is vital that patients who undergo this process do so in a safe environment surrounded by medical professionals who can monitor the body while the brain rebuilds itself through detoxification.
