Alcohol Withdrawal

If you drink alcohol heavily for weeks, months or years, you may experience both mental and physical health problems. If you try and stop misusing alcohol, you will also experience these symptoms and this is known as alcohol withdrawal. However, your symptoms can range from mild to serious and this will depend on how much alcohol your body is used to.

If this is the case, unfortunately, you are most likely addicted to alcohol but there are ways around your addiction. We advise an alcohol detox at a rehab centre so you are in safe hands as you never know the severeness of your withdrawal symptoms until you experience them.

Time To Detox

Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms

Some mild withdrawal symptoms may include:

  • Anxiety
  • Shaky hands
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Sweating

These symptoms will usually appear as early as 6 hours after you have your last bit of alcohol. However, more serious symptoms can occur with a range from hallucinations about 12 to 24 hours afterwards and then may further develop seizures.

Alcohol Detox

Within as little as 28 days, many rehab centres are able to reset your physical and emotional state so you are alcohol-free via an alcohol detox.

Treatment methods are utilised as a part of the alcohol rehab process. This method helps to give you the best possible chance of recovery with no exceptions.
