Alcohol is one of the most commonly abused substances in America and detoxing from alcohol is not only a frequent occurrence in treatment centers but a dangerous one as well. Withdrawal symptoms are not only severe but in rare circumstances, detoxing alone can be deadly. Because of the risks involved, it is always recommended that those who need to get sober utilize an alcohol detox center to manage the detoxification process. If you, or someone you know is suffering from alcohol dependence and withdrawal, please call (888) 739-8296 for immediate assistance.
For some, alcohol withdrawal simply feels like a “hangover.” Nothing much to worry about, right? If you’ve been using alcohol regularly for an extended period of time, this is completely untrue. The reason alcohol withdrawal is such a serious issue is that those suffering from withdrawal can go from having symptoms of a mild hangover to very severe alcohol withdrawal symptoms quickly.
Signs of withdrawal symptoms include anxiety, restlessness, sweating, headaches, chills, vomiting and insomnia. However, symptoms for alcoholics can go from mild to severe quickly. Severe symptoms include, but are not limited to seizures, delirium tremens, hallucinations, high-blood pressure, increased heart rate, and severe depression. Without trained staff to oversee the alcoholic withdrawal and detox process, the person suffering from withdrawals will be at-risk for serious health problems. Professionally-managed alcohol detox usually includes medication to help manage the symptoms of withdrawal, reducing the immediate risks to the individual and making the detox process far more comfortable that it would otherwise be. Unlike a true medical alcohol detox, residential detox takes place in a comfortable, home-like setting rather than a hospital, providing a far more comfortable overall experience than a cold, medical environment would.
We approach alcohol detox as a potentially life-threatening health problem. Our first priority is to evaluate our clients to insure we are the best fit for them. Thereafter, our goal is to help our clients minimize their symptoms of withdrawal. This can include alcohol detox medication prescribed by a licensed medical doctor. Once the withdrawal symptoms are under control, we help our clients consider their next step in the process of alcohol rehabilitation. Whether that’s long-term, inpatient rehabilitation at a facility or if it’s an outpatient alternative, our clinical staff will help you pave the way towards success once you leave Inland Detox.
Many alcohol detox centers neglect the mental side of addiction, focusing only on managing the physical withdrawal symptoms of an individual. Inland Detox is different – our approach includes individual and group counseling to begin to identify the underlying causes of addiction, setting each person up for success as they transition into further levels of treatment. We have found that including dual-diagnosis counseling in alcohol detox treatment helps individuals be better-prepared for the residential treatment environment, as well as increasing the chances of long-term sobriety and success.
If you or a loved one is suffering from alcohol dependence and/or withdrawal, please call Inland Detox today at (888) 739-8296. Our alcohol detox program can get you through the withdrawal process safely and comfortably.
Client assessment is a multi-stage process that begins when you first call and continues during the onsite intake process. When you call Inland Detox you’ll speak to an Admissions Advisor that will help you understand the admissions process. They’ll ask you about your needs and help you determine if Inland Detox is a right fit for you. Upon admission, you’ll be assessed by staff that will identify your immediate needs and they will work with clinical staff to design a custom treatment plan.
Client stabilization is the second goal of effective detox treatment. At this stage of care, our Clinical Director addresses the client’s immediate needs while taking in to account the unique history of each client. Inland Detox staff will coordinate efforts with your primary physician or a local physician if you need to continue a course of prescribed medication or begin a new course of medication in the process of detox.
Our clinical staff members design a custom treatment plan for each client of Inland Detox. Our treatment plans take in to consideration the substance abuse history of each client, their immediate medical, psychological, nutritional and social needs as well. Our understanding of the detox process is that it is the first step towards recovery. As such, our clinical and supportive staff members work in concert to suggest effective care upon discharge. This may include finding appropriate long-term residential care provider or making a transition to outpatient care.
When it’s time for our clients to transition from our detox program to their next level of care, we insure a smooth transition. Our clinical and administrative staff members will coordinate travel from our facility to our client’s next destination. Our goal is to insure that from the time our client’s reach us until the time they transition to their next stage in life, we are with them the entire way.
