Alcohol Withdrawal and Detox

In this Special Report, Carl Arrogante, a family therapist and addiction specialist, discusses Alcohol Withdrawal and Detox.

What is alcohol?

Alcohol is classified as a drug. It is a toxic substance that depresses the central nervous system and has the capacity to produce physical and behavioral dependency.

It is the depressant action of alcohol that brings the most of the most commonly observed drinking effects.

The initial euphoric effect makes it appear to be a stimulant. However, this soon gives way to lethargy and a less active response as deeper structures of the brain are affected.

What is alcohol withdrawal?

When heavy drinkers suddenly stop or significantly reduce their alcohol consumption, the neurotransmitters previously suppressed by alcohol are no longer suppressed.

They rebound, resulting in a phenomenon known as brain hyper-excitability, so the effects associated with alcohol withdrawal which are anxiety, irritability agitation, tremors, seizures, and DTs are the opposite of those associated with alcohol consumption.

What are the withdrawal symptoms of alcohol?

Shakiness, anxiety, depression, fatigue, headache, sweating, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, insomnia, rapid heart rate, delirium tremens, agitation, fever, convulsions, and blackouts.

What is alcohol detox?

Withdrawal from alcohol can be so severe that people trying to get off alcohol frequently require hospitalization.

These dangerous withdrawal symptoms can be greatly reduced through a medical drug detox program that addresses a person’s specific metabolic needs and state of health to help avoid the worst of negative withdrawal symptoms.
