Alcohol is seemingly omnipresent in American society. It’s widely available, legal, and culturally acceptable. However, alcohol also has a high potential for abuse. Alcohol addiction can impact anyone regardless of their age, race, gender, income level, or background. Overcoming alcohol addiction can be difficult to do on your own. Over time, alcohol abuse causes dependency, and those who have built up a tolerance to the substance can experience painful or uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms when they try to stop drinking. However, an alcohol detox program can help.
At New Hampshire Detox Center, we’re proud to offer the Granite State’s only standalone drug and alcohol detox center. We offer medical care and comprehensive support that helps our clients begin the journey to recovery with a strong foundation. If you or a loved one are ready to take the first step towards healing from alcohol addiction, reach out to a member of our team today by calling 603.932.7692 or by connecting with us online.
Are You a Candidate for an Alcohol Detox Program?
Not sure whether you would benefit from an alcohol detox program? To determine if you’re a candidate for our program, ask yourself the following:
- Do you feel the need to drink to get through the day?
- If you’ve tried to stop drinking in the past have you experienced withdrawal symptoms like nausea or anxiety?
- Do you use alcohol in combination with other substances, such as opioid pain relievers?
- Do you hide your drinking from friends and family?
- Have you relapsed after a period of sobriety?
If you can answer yes to any of the above, it’s likely that our alcohol detox center can help you at the beginning of your journey to sobriety. We don’t just offer medical care at New Hampshire Detox Center. We also provide a comfortable, healing environment where our clients can focus on their recovery. Detox can be a challenging time physically, mentally, and emotionally. Our team members offer support every step of the way.
Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms
One reason why alcohol detox programs are so helpful for those struggling with alcohol addiction is because withdrawal symptoms can be severe. These symptoms vary depending on the length of time that you’ve been addicted to alcohol and the amount that you drink. However, some common alcohol withdrawal symptoms can include:
- Irregular heartbeat
- Nausea and vomiting
Over time, heavy alcohol use causes your body to begin to rely on the substance in order to function. The withdrawal symptoms that accompany detox can be not only uncomfortable but can also lead to medical issues. In our center, we offer medical supervision in order to ensure that each of our clients is as safe as possible during the detox process.
How Medical Detox Can Ease Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms
You can begin to experience withdrawal symptoms as early as two hours after your last drink. For most people, withdrawal symptoms will last for several days to a week. After this time they’re likely to taper off. However, you may still experience cravings that can tempt you to relapse.
Going through detox in our center ensures you have accountability and support to avoid relapse. We can also prescribe medications to ease withdrawal symptoms.
One of the biggest benefits of going through detox in our center is that you’ll have support from addiction treatment specialists and others in recovery. Addiction can be isolating. However, in our center, you’ll work towards healing with the help of others who understand.
