We offer in-patient medication assisted withdrawal management (treating withdrawal symptoms using medications) and holistic support for people for whom withdrawal without medications is appropriate. Our team of doctors, nurses, personal support workers, and therapists work together with each patient to develop a withdrawal management plan that is both humane and effective.

The most common alcohol withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Anxiety
  • Tremors
  • Insomnia
  • Cravings
  • Agitation
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Sweating

Acute alcohol withdrawal may occur in those who have developed physical dependence to the substance.

When a person who is dependent on alcohol cuts back or quits drinking completely, the central nervous system rebounds and goes into a hyper-aroused state, which leads to withdrawal symptoms.

Because some aspects of withdrawal can be dangerous, especially for severe alcoholics, medical detox may be necessary.

The more a person drinks, the greater the odds that he or she will suffer alcohol withdrawal symptoms.

People who drink daily and consume large amounts (more than 3 drinks a day) for multiple days are at a high risk for withdrawal.

How Long Do Drug Withdrawals Last?

The length of withdrawal symptoms will depend on which drug is being used. Each timeline will be different per person based on duration of use, amount of addiction, and type of illicit drug being used. Withdrawal symptoms can easily last for up to a month.

Did you know?

Life threatening seizures are a major risk with alcohol withdrawal.

Seizures are common within the first 12 to 48 hours after the last drink and are more likely to occur in people who have had complications from alcohol withdrawal in the past.

The safest method for alcohol withdrawal is to detox under the care of medical professionals.

This can minimize the risk of serious complications, and otherwise make the process as comfortable as possible.

Supervision and support can be provided in a professional detoxification program staffed by doctors, nurses, and addiction counselors. Many recovering alcoholics benefit from such close medical attention and experience better outcomes following the initial treatment.
