Michigan Alcohol Detoxification

Renowned Michigan Detox Center, Providing Experienced Help

The more consistently you drink alcohol in excess, the more your body begins to depend on it. Alcohol delivers certain chemicals to the brain that the brain already produces. The more it receives these chemicals from alcohol, the less it produces them on its own. This is what causes dependence and the resulting withdrawal symptoms. Nausea, headache, and irregular heartbeat are just some of the complications you may experience when you cut off alcohol after becoming dependent.

Our alcohol detox center in Michigan will make sure that you receive the renowned & expert help you deserve and need.

Withdrawal is difficult and often discourages people from taking the necessary steps to break their dependency. This is where detoxification can help. At Detox Expert, we provide alcohol detoxification in Michigan. While at our Michigan detox center, our skilled team will help you manage withdrawal symptoms and remove the last vestiges of alcohol from your body.

What to Expect During Detoxification

Alcohol detoxification typically lasts a little longer than a week. Withdrawal symptoms begin very early in the process, even within the first hours since your last drink. The symptoms get progressively worse during the first and second days. Many patients experience panic attacks and hallucinations. Seizures have even been known to happen in severe cases—another reason why monitored detox is so important.

Common alcohol withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Tremors
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Sweating
  • Anxiety
  • Disorientation
  • Hallucinations
  • Elevated blood pressure and heart rate, which could be dangerous

Withdrawal symptoms will go in and out throughout the rest of the week. This is a dangerous period where patients are susceptible to life-threatening symptoms such as delirium tremens if not properly treated. Symptoms should begin to get easier by the end of the week.

How Long Will Detox Take

Detoxification can vary from patient to patient. However, the withdrawal side effects and symptoms can be broken down into stages.

  • Stage 1: Anxiety - beginning 8 hours after last drink
  • Stage 2: High Blood Pressure- 24-72 hours after last drink
  • Stage 3: Hallucinations- 2-4 days after last drink

All symptoms and withdraws decrease after 5-7 days. Recovery from alcohol dependency can be challenging. Comprehensive treatment can help build the necessary skills for sobriety long term.

We Will Be by Your Side

Our Farmington Hills-based team will be here to help when withdrawal symptoms take their toll. We are experienced practitioners of Medication Assisted Treatment and may use benzos, naltrexone, acamprosate, and disulfiram to help treat withdrawal symptoms. Once you have completed your treatment, we will educate you on some things you may experience now that you have finished your detox. We can also discuss what your next steps should be.
