Alcohol Withdrawal

During alcohol withdrawal, an addict experiences uncomfortable—and in some cases, potentially life-threatening—symptoms directly caused by their body trying to overcome its chemical addiction. Withdrawal from alcohol is the most difficult time in an alcoholic’s recovery. However, if they successfully get through it, they’re well on their way to a happier life. At Drug-Rehab.org, we’ll match you or your loved one with treatment to quickly and safely get through withdrawal.

Alcoholism Withdrawal Symptoms

No two alcoholics withdraw from their addiction in quite the same way. The more an alcoholic drank before recovery and the longer they struggled with alcohol addiction can worsen symptoms. Nevertheless, there are a few common symptoms that arise during most forms of withdrawal from alcohol, including:

  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Stomach pains
  • Head pains
  • Body tremors
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Mood swings
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Tiredness

Where you should be especially careful is when alcoholism withdrawal symptoms include health risks such as heart palpitations and seizures. Of all of the chemical addictions out there, alcohol withdrawals tend to pose the greatest risk for potential complications. However, if you or your loved one has professional supervision, those risks are not as threatening.

Treating Alcohol Withdrawals

There’s more than one form of alcohol withdrawal help. It can be difficult to wade through all of the programs where you or your loved one could apply, especially if you don’t have prior experience in alcoholism treatment—or even if you do. Remember that what works for one person may not work for another. If you or your loved one has tried some form of rehab before without success, we can find a different type of treatment that will suit you or them better.

The different types of withdrawal help that we at Drug-Rehab.org recommend include both inpatient and outpatient treatment and both medicated and non-medicated treatment. Some addicts do better in recovery when they’re completely removed from their home distractions. Some addicts still need to continue fulfilling the responsibilities of everyday life, assuming they are physically able to while struggling with addiction. Some addicts need medication to get through the uncomfortable symptoms of withdrawal and others prefer not to rely on chemical substances. When we discuss treatment options with an alcoholic or their loved ones, we gauge the situation in order to determine which combination of treatment would work best for the individual.
