Alcohol detox is physically and mentally exhausting and physically painful. While it may not be an easy road, it is definitely an important one to travel.

Detox is the time needed to remove any remaining alcohol from the body.  This may be accomplished in a week or less. It is important here to distinguish between detox and rehab.  Too often, people think of detox and rehab as a single process.

Going through detox sucks, but when you prepare for it and you know why you’re doing it, you can make it through. You got this!

Alcohol detox is a serious process which should generally be done under medical supervision.  One of the most serious symptoms of alcohol detox is called “delirium tremens”.  Delirium tremens involves some or all of the following symptoms:  hallucinations, strong and severe tremors throughout the body, and sudden and severe nervous system changes.

Detox takes from 5 to 7 days.  Aside from delirium tremens, the person in detox may also suffer high blood pressure, body temperature dysregulation, excessive sweating and gastrointestinal problems.  Keep in mind, however, that this is only the first step in the process of recovery from severe alcohol abuse.
