We place people into programs and treatments that are designed to provide rapid, complete and full-detox while mitigating the physical pain and suffering that comes with the withdrawal symptoms. We make sure the facilities we work with cultivate an environment of compassion and confidentiality that gives the client the freedom to not only let go of the chemical toxins, but to let go of all physical, mental and emotional energies that do not serve them.

There are two major signs of alcohol addiction are tolerance and withdrawal. The first is Tolerance. The body first builds up a tolerance to the alcohol. As the body adapts to continue functioning, the tolerance increases which leads to a person needing to consume even more alcohol to achieve the desired effects. The second sign is Withdrawal. This will be seen when the inflow of alcohol stops for whatever reason and the body is forced to revert to operate without it. Physical symptoms of the second stage would include: stress and anxiety, accelerated heart rate, disorientation, nausea and the need to purge, insomnia. If a person experiences these symptoms yet continues to drink to calm the discomfort, these are clear signs that help is needed.

According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders for Alcohol Use Disorder (DSM-5), there are 11 criteria used to ascertain whether a person is should be diagnosed with an AUD. The levels of severity are described as follows:

  • 1-2 (any two of the eleven criteria within a one year period) – MILD AUD
  • 3-5 (three to five criteria within a one year period) – MODERATE AUD
  • 6-11 (six or more criteria within a one year period) – SEVERE AUD

Delirium Tremens refers to the immediate onset of confusion brought about during the process of withdrawal from alcohol. It usually takes place during the second stage of alcohol detox, or three days since the last consumption of alcohol and can last up to three more days. It is common for people to hallucinate and have physical symptoms such as irregular heartrate, high blood pressure, shaking, shivering, sweating. These conditions can lead to high body temperature and seizures, which can be fatal. It is very important that clients suffering from alcohol addition be monitored during the detox process to ensure their safety.

Medical & Psychological Support

Some of the immediate symptoms one can expect to experience during detox might be anxiety, insomnia, nausea, agitation, muscle aches and pains, heavy perspiration, among others. These symptoms can vary, but require a staff and regime for comfort.
