Medically Supervised Detox

We engage holistically and treat each of our patients as unique individuals with their own history and issues. Your initial entry into Garden Heights Recovery is met with a physical and psychological assessment that will determine which treatment options are best for your recovery.

Once your treatment plan is devised, you will be given a medically supervised alcohol detox to remove the alcohol from your system. Our medical staff will monitor you throughout the process and attend to any alcohol withdrawal symptoms that you may experience. We will keep you stable, safe, and as comfortable as possible. Detoxing from alcohol is a serious endeavor, and should never be attempted alone. 

Depending on the severity of your alcohol addiction, age, genetic make-up, and other health problems, you may experience a variety of alcohol withdrawal symptoms that include: 

  • Physical weakness, fatigue, insomnia
  • Alcohol cravings
  • Rapid heart-beat, increased blood pressure
  • Sweating, tremors, nausea, vomiting, fever, 
  • Anxiety, depression, restlessness, irritability, hostility
  • Seizures, delirium tremens

The alcohol detox withdrawal timeline is as follows:

  • Because alcohol is metabolized and removed from the body quickly, alcohol withdrawal symptoms usually begin about 4 to 12 hours after the last drink.
  • Withdrawal symptoms typically peak around the 2nd day, and begin to subside by the 4th to 5th day.

You may experience long-term (protracted) alcohol withdrawal effects that can last from weeks to months, and in some cases, years after the detox process. These symptoms can include:

  • Fatigue, insomnia, sleep apnea
  • Unstable moods, hostility, anxiety, depression
  • Unexplained pain
  • Low libido
  • Problems with concentrating, thinking

Psychological Support

Once you have completed the detox process, you can begin to attend social and psychological counseling and education programs. These programs are designed to delve into the reasons why you began to drink alcohol in the first place, and why you continued. You will also discover negative, destructive thought patterns that lead you to drink, and how you can change these patterns into positive, healthy ones that support sobriety. 

You will learn about addiction’s effect on the mind and body, and how it can continue to seduce you if you do not apply coping mechanisms to rein it in. Relapse prevention techniques will give you the tools you need to fight off cravings, triggers, stress, toxic people and other life situations. 

Here at Garden Heights Recovery, we are committed to helping you recover from alcoholism, and living a sober life. We show you that life can be fun and interesting without drinking alcohol, by engaging in clean and sober activities, entertainment and outings. You will learn about yourself and addiction, make new friends, and get the tools you need to remain alcohol-free. Take the first step to recovery today and call us at 877-649-0440.
