How Alcohol Detox Can Jumpstart Your Recovery
Alcohol detox is the first step in the recovery process. Once you’ve made the courageous decision to seek help, our team of detox specialists, nurses, counselors, and physicians are here to provide compassionate care while you go through withdrawal.
Detox and withdrawal are infamous for being uncomfortable experiences, physically and psychologically. Having medical and mental health professionals assist and oversee your detoxification can be the difference between success and failure. Alcohol detox is accompanied by physical and emotional symptoms that can include:
- Cognitive difficulties
- Irritability and agitation
At Honey Lake, you’ll have professionals by your side and appropriate medications to help alleviate your symptoms, all helping you concentrate on the hard work at hand—your recovery.
What to Expect in our Alcohol Detox Program
First, you will be assessed upon admission. We’ll discuss your health history, your mental health, and your substance use. Then we’ll design a personalized detox plan that will meet your specific needs.
Typically, we design a reduction taper over three to 10 days that helps you safely and comfortably withdraw from high levels of alcohol consumption. Our goal is to alleviate withdrawal symptoms while also providing emotional support. We also focus on your nutrition, vitamins, fluids, and electrolytes.
When you become stable and able to focus and function, we’ll perform a thorough psychiatric evaluation. This can help us determine if underlying trauma or mental health concerns have been at the root of your addiction. Then, our highly trained staff works with you to put together a customized treatment plan to address your underlying psychological issues.
Detox and withdrawal are different for everyone who goes through them—for some, the process takes only days, for others, weeks. Typically, withdrawal symptoms subside within a week.
How Our Alcohol Detox Program Can Prevent Relapse
Alcohol dependency is partially defined by its physical aspects. These include changes in brain chemistry that lead to cravings when alcohol consumption ceases. As you begin recovery, the cravings will gradually decrease in intensity until they are no longer a major factor.
Physical cravings will cause a relapse in the early stages of recovery before they begin to decline in their severity. But psychological cravings for alcohol are an entirely different matter. These powerful urges are triggered by life circumstances and events that never completely lose their ability to provoke a response. Addiction doesn’t happen in a vacuum. These are triggers—and you’ll benefit from education, counseling, and therapy to reframe your understanding of these triggers and gain the skills necessary to manage them.
