What is the Point of Alcohol Detox?

Alcohol detox is often the first step in the alcohol addiction recovery process. It involves the elimination of alcohol from the body, providing a fresh start for healing and recovering afterward. This process can often be accompanied by withdrawal symptoms—ranging from mild discomfort to severe health issues—which makes attempting detox without medical supervision potentially dangerous.

The primary purpose of medically supervised alcohol detox is to ensure safety and manage withdrawal symptoms effectively. When you undergo detox at our specialized facility, you're not only in a safe environment but also under the constant care of medical professionals. Our trained staff will monitor your health closely, manage your symptoms, and intervene promptly in case of unsafe withdrawal complications.

What are the Worst Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms?

Alcohol withdrawal is far more than just an extreme hangover—it is a serious medical condition with potentially life-threatening consequences. When someone who is dependent on alcohol suddenly stops or significantly reduces their alcohol intake, the body, which has adjusted to the presence of alcohol, can react strongly, leading to withdrawal symptoms. The symptoms can range from mild to severe and can be dangerous if not properly managed. This is why medically supervised detox is so important and should always be considered for anyone who wants to stop alcohol overuse.

Common and dangerous symptoms of alcohol withdrawal include

  • Delirium tremens (DTs): Delirium tremens is a severe yet rare form of alcohol withdrawal. Symptoms can include confusion, hallucinations, high blood pressure, fever, chest pain, unconsciousness, rapid pulse, heavy sweating, and more. If untreated, DTs can be fatal.
  • Seizures: Alcohol withdrawal seizures typically occur a day or two after stopping drinking but can occur up to several days later. The seizures can be serious enough to cause secondary injuries or complications, which may be even more dangerous.
  • Hallucinations: Some people may experience visual, auditory, or tactile hallucinations during withdrawal. Although these hallucinations are usually not harmful in themselves, they can be disturbing enough to cause lasting trauma.
  • Severe dehydration: Withdrawal often causes vomiting, sweating, and fever, all of which can lead to severe dehydration. In turn, dehydration can result in dangerously low blood pressure, rapid heart rate, and, in extreme cases, kidney failure or death.

It's important to note that not everyone will experience these severe symptoms, but the risk is significant enough that anyone considering stopping alcohol use should consider detox services like those we offer at Decision Point Center. Our alcohol detox professionals in Phoenix can provide the necessary medical supervision and support to manage these symptoms and give you a safe transition into sobriety.

Deciding to Use Alcohol Detox

Alcohol detox should be the first step in your recovery if you have developed a physical dependence on alcohol and wish to stop drinking. If you find that you start experiencing tremors, sweating, nausea, or anxiety when you haven’t had alcohol recently, it could be a sign that your body has become physically dependent on alcohol due to chemical reactions to the substance. In such cases, alcohol detox should be used to begin the rehab process. The same is true if you drink alcohol several days a week or feel a constant urge for more alcohol but have not necessarily experienced withdrawal symptoms yet.

If you’re not sure if you should use alcohol detox, call (844) 292-5010 to talk to an alcohol detox specialist from Decision Point Center in Phoenix. We can assess your situation and give our professional opinion about whether you need detox treatment. If you have talked to your primary care provider about detox, we can also take into account their diagnosis and evaluations.

Alcohol Detox Process

We have carefully created an alcohol detox program designed to safely guide people suffering from alcohol use disorder through the process of quitting alcohol. The approach we use is rooted in medical and rehab knowledge, as well as trusted and established scientific methods. When you undergo alcohol detox at Decision Point Center, you can utilize an individualized treatment plan that prioritizes your safety, comfort, and sobriety.

The three main phases of the alcohol detox process at Decision Point Center are:

  1. Evaluation: The initial evaluation phase involves a comprehensive assessment of your physical and psychological health, substance use history, and any previous detox attempts. The goal is to understand the extent of your alcohol dependence and any co-occurring mental health issues, which will allow us to develop a personalized detox and treatment plan.
  2. Stabilization: In this phase, our detox professionals use various interventions to help you achieve a medically stable state free from alcohol. This process may involve the use of medications to manage withdrawal symptoms, nutritional support if you are experiencing dehydration or malnutrition, and vital sign monitoring.
  3. Detoxification: The final phase involves the actual process of eliminating alcohol from your system, which can be done through the “tapering” method. Using medical supervision, our team will manage any withdrawal symptoms that arise. This phase also includes ongoing psychological support to help you prepare for the next rehabilitative steps in your recovery journey.

Steps After Alcohol Detoxification

Our goal is to make sure that you are well-prepared to start rehab treatment after completing the detox process. Decision Point Center offers a wide range of treatments and therapies that are designed to help you understand your addiction, develop coping mechanisms, and build a strong foundation for a sober lifestyle.

When alcohol detox is completed, we can keep helping you gain sobriety through:

  • Residential inpatient program: This program provides a structured environment where you can truly focus on your recovery.
  • Therapies: A variety of therapeutic approaches, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and motivational interviewing, can help you identify triggers for alcohol use, develop healthier responses to stress, improve communication and problem-solving skills, and feel motivated for change.
  • Life skills training: This training program can show you how to develop essential skills needed for a successful life in sobriety, such as job skills, financial management, healthy cooking, and other aspects of self-care.
  • Alumni support: After leaving Decision Point Center, alumni can take advantage of ongoing support through alumni events, sobriety sponsorships, and an online community. This ongoing support can be crucial in maintaining long-term sobriety.
