Detox From Alcohol
Alcohol has become a staple of our society and the abuse of alcohol is not always easily recognized. If you think that you or a loved one may have a problem with alcohol, then it is time to look at a program that offers programs specializing in detox from alcohol.
Symptoms of Alcohol Dependence
There are no sure-fire symptoms of alcoholism. We’ve all seen the obvious alcoholics who are loud and obnoxious, maybe even violent, but there are several others out there, as well, that are not as obvious. Many drink in secret, keeping a secret stash in their desk at work, in the car or other places where they can be alone and have a quick nip, when no one is looking. Then there are those who ‘need’ a drink when they come home, or ‘always’ get a shot with their cola or coffee. It is a cause for concern if they can not go for a few days, let alone a few hours without taking a drink.
A glass or two of wine with a meal, a pint of beer after work or at a social event is perfectly acceptable. However, if it is an every day occurrence or intoxication is repeatedly excessive then there may be a problem.
Detox From Alcohol
Having established that you or a loved one is dependent on alcohol is the first step towards alcohol detox. The next is to reach out and seek help from those with experience. Medically assisted detoxification at a health care facility or rehabilitation center such as The Arizona Detox Centers is probably the best way to go.
There are several ways to detox, but only a medically trained professional can ensure that the process will be as smooth and as painless as possible. An experienced facility treats both the addiction and the person. They work with them and their loved ones to change habits and environmental factors that contributed to the alcohol dependency. Without these changes the person is likely to relapse into their old life and return to alcoholism. Our facility removes the person from their environment. By doing so, we remove stress and temptation and provide a caring, monitored environment that can help get things into perspective.
Also in a controlled environment, one can be assessed and monitored for health problems like liver cirrhosis, hypertension, and depression. Trained staff can deal with these and other withdrawal symptoms, making recovery quicker and easier.
Our trained staff understand what recovery is about and provides our clientele with all of their medical and psychological needs through this difficult time. Don’t attempt to go it alone, seek professional help today.
