Alcohol Detox

Unfortunately, the number of people suffering from an alcohol addiction and requiring alcohol detox has rocketed in recent years. According to a number of different organisations, there are over 76 million people worldwide who drink alcohol in a problematic manner – whether this is people who have an alcohol dependency or those who are affected by alcoholism, these statistics are worrying.

Many people believe that prolonged alcohol abuse is party due to an influx of low-cost drugs such as heroin, cocaine and a myriad of ‘new-age’ drugs such as crystal meth and GBL. Office of National Statistics data also reveals a sharp increase in the number of Londoners suffering from alcoholism.

Despite being still being legal, regular alcohol consumption can destroy lives, relationships and your ambitions. The more you use alcohol, it becomes more difficult to completely stop drinking. For most alcoholics, alcohol detoxification is the only option to completely get rid of alcohol from your life.

Making The Alcohol Detox Withdrawal Process More Bearable

One sure sign of alcohol addiction is the occurrence of ‘withdrawal symptoms’ when you attempt to beat your addiction. Also known as alcohol withdrawal symptoms, they almost always occur when you quit drinking and may trigger life-threatening health complications. For this reason, medically supervised detox and professional rehab will give you a better chance of a healthy recovery from alcohol withdrawal.

These symptoms vary between substances but the common theme is intense discomfort causing the addict to relapse. When you attend Cassiobury Court in London you receive a psychiatric examination. You are then prescribed medications allowing you to detox  from alcohol without suffering acute withdrawal symptoms. This process is known as alcohol detox. Because you receive treatment entirely within our luxurious eighteenth-century building, the psychological urge to relapse is absent throughout the rehabilitation period.

Alcohol Detox FAQs

If you are concerned about the amount of alcohol you or a family member are consuming and believe that you will benefit from learning more about alcohol detoxification, then you will benefit from reading through our Frequently Asked Questions section.

If you quit drinking after prolonged alcohol abuse, it will be unlikely that you won't experience any of these withdrawal symptoms.

They are divided into two different categories:

Physical Signs:

  • Hand tremors
  • Nausea and/ vomiting
  • Sweating
  • Minor to moderate seizures

Psychological Signs:

  • Anxiety & Depression
  • Irritability
  • Restlessness
  • Insomnia

Delirium Tremens is defined as a psychotic condition typical of withdrawal in chronic alcoholics, involving tremors, hallucinations, anxiety, and disorientation.

Common symptoms which are associated with DTs include:

  • Nightmares
  • Hallucination
  • Fever
  • Perspiration
  • Vomiting
  • Seizures
  • Heightened heart rate
  • Tremors
  • Increased blood pressure

Yes it is rare, but Delirium Tremens can be fatal.

This is why it is important to undergo alcohol detox in a medically supervised environment.

Usually this is not possible. If your body has been dependent on alcohol for a while then you will almost certainly experience withdrawal symptoms when you stop drinking.

Symptoms from an alcohol detox normally peak by 24 hours to 48 hours – but if you are a heavy drinker – usually, it will take 7 to 10 days to fully detox from alcohol. The detox process usually varies depending on the drinker.
