What to Expect During Alcohol Detoxification?
Upon arrival, you will be subject to a comprehensive medical assessment, as well as receiving a detoxification plan tailored just for you. Personalized to your needs, this plan focuses on the amount you have been drinking, an in-depth appraisal of physical functioning, and seriousness of withdrawal symptoms. Regardless of whether you have completed a plan before, each new detox is entirely new. You should be aware that the more regularly you detox and drink, the worse the symptoms can be. Upon the plan’s implementation, you will be supervised closely and your progress reviewed. In fact, you will be assessed throughout each day to guarantee your comfort and well being. Depending on the severity of withdrawal, the use of medication will counteract the worst of your symptoms. It is during this restorative period that you reacquire your strength.
