If a person’s dependency upon alcohol is too severe, it may be physically dangerous if they were to suddenly stop drinking, with symptoms including nausea, vomiting, confusion, increased heart rate, hallucinations and anxiety. Alcohol withdrawal that is not medically supervised can even be fatal. The Recovery Lodge provides a comprehensive alcohol abuse detoxification program, overseen by empathic and well-trained staff of counsellors, psychotherapists, that may include medical, psychological and emotional support to ease a person’s journey through the alcohol detox process.
Alcoholism, also known as alcohol addiction, alcohol dependency or alcohol abuse- is a syndrome characterised by excessive drinking to the extent that a person may become physically and psychologically dependent upon alcohol in order to function. An Alcohol Detox Treatment Centre is a place where someone can go to mitigate the physical effects of alcohol abuse detoxification, and then begin to look at the underlying causes of alcohol dependency, as well as a comprehensive range of techniques with which one might deal with these triggers- rather than turning back to the bottle.
