Learn about alcohol abuse treatment at Starlite Recovery Center
Alcohol is one of the most commonly abused substances in the world, and its use is widely accepted in many different cultures. Despite this acceptance, it is important to understand that when alcohol is abused, it can cause severe detriments to your life.
The use of alcohol can lead to lowered inhibitions, mood swings, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. If your alcohol use increases in quantity and frequency, you run the risk of becoming addicted to the substance, which can be extremely challenging to overcome. Attempting to stop using alcohol on your own can cause many physical and mental side effects that can stand in the way of your recovery. These effects are known as withdrawal symptoms.
If your health begins to deteriorate and/or personal issues start to pile up, you can benefit from obtaining skills that will equip you to get a better handle on your behaviors. A professional treatment center or facility can provide a safe, comfortable environment for recovery that also offers additional therapeutic services.
What happens during alcohol withdrawal
When you attempt to stop drinking alcohol after having developed a physical tolerance to the substance, you may experience many physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms, including the following:
- Increased heart rate
- Involuntary movements
- Trouble making decisions
Detoxification for alcohol addiction at Starlite Recovery Center
Detoxification, commonly referred to as detox, is the process of having toxic substances removed from your body while under medical supervision. Without this type of professional treatment, you may begin to struggle with withdrawal symptoms as you try to stop using the substance on your own.
Detox services tend to be most beneficial for individuals who are engaging in a treatment program but have been unable to stop drinking on their own. As withdrawal symptoms start to occur, our team of professionals will monitor your health and well-being in order to ensure your safety.
Additionally, you might be provided with medication at this time to help you feel more comfortable as your withdrawal symptoms set in.
Long-term benefits of detox for alcohol addiction
When involved in a detox program, you will be supervised as alcohol and other substances leave your body. We make every effort to ensure that there is no access to mind-altering substances at our facility, preventing you from relapsing while in our care.
You will not be able to make the most of the services provided to you if you do not have a clear mind and body. Therefore, participating in detox prior to receiving further treatment can help prepare you to engage in your care in a way that will allow you to fully recover.
If you or someone that you care about is struggling with alcohol addiction, we can help. Please reach out to the staff here at Starlite Recovery Center at your earliest convenience.
