About Alcohol Detox
Not all people in need of help for abusing or being addicted to alcohol need the same type of detoxification procedure. In fact, many people are able to simply detox themselves with proper rest and nutrition. However for long-term daily alcoholics simply stopping alcohol use without guidance or supervision from a qualified medical professional is not advised.
Some of the questions you might be asked could include:
How long have you been drinking alcohol? How often do you drink? When was the last time you went more than 24 hours without any alcohol or drugs? Are you taking any other drugs or medications? Do you normally get "the shakes" when you stop drinking? Have you ever had a seizure, especially after stopping alcohol consumption?
When a medical detox is required for someone who is alcohol-dependent, the prodecure can usually last 3-5 days and substitute drugs are prescribed such as Ativan or Librium to limit the shock on the body. It is a good idea to find a detox program that will also help with vitamin IV drips and other health-restoring activities so that the person feels better.
