All of our clients receive 24-hour medical care during this crucial stage of recovery to address withdrawal symptoms and any underlying health issues that may arise or be exacerbated. We will provide medication to ease the transition into sobriety as well as therapy to help you address the root causes of your alcohol abuse and maintain your recovery long after you graduate from Unity Behavioral Health.
Much of the apprehension associated with the prospect of facing withdrawal stems from patients attempting to detox on their own. While these efforts are undertaken with the best intentions, they have a low chance of success if they lack the right medication and therapies. Additionally, these homemade efforts discourage patients from making any future attempts at detoxification after they do not pan out. On top of that, detoxing from alcohol can be dangerous and even life-threatening if not managed properly. Some of the symptoms experienced by those who undergo alcohol detox include:
There are three distinct stages of alcohol detox: evaluation, stabilization, and treatment. After determining the level of alcohol in a given patient’s system and screening for any co-occurring mental and physical conditions, stabilization consists of closely monitoring the patient and applying any medication and therapies as needed. The last stage of detoxification prepares the patient for the remainder of his or her less intense, but longer recovery stages. All told, alcohol detox can last anywhere from 5-14 days. At Unity Behavioral Health, our cutting-edge alcohol abuse recovery programs employ a variety of evidence-based, traditional and holistic therapies to make your time with us as productive and comfortable as possible. With our professional, medical supervision, we can help you safely achieve a long-term recovery from alcohol abuse, starting with the best alcohol detox possible.
