First, Alcohol Detox

The first course of treatment when you enter our alcohol rehab is medically supervised detox process where our medical staff will wean you off of alcohol. It can prove very dangerous for an alcoholic to stop drinking cold-turkey because the body can react in life-threatening ways. The best course of action is to be weaned off of alcohol by a medical staff that can keep you stable and safe, and treat any detox symptoms with medications. 

During your medically supervised detox you will be monitored by our medical team throughout the process and afterwards to ensure that you are stable. If you experience any adverse detox symptoms, they can be treated with medications by our staff. Our job is to safely assist you through the detox process and also try to keep you as comfortable as possible. 

An alcohol detox process can last from 7 to 10 days, and detox symptoms usually begin to peak around the first to third day. By the seventh day, the detox symptoms begin to diminish, but in some cases the symptoms of alcohol cravings and insomnia can last for months after the detox process is finished. 

Some of the alcohol detox symptoms that you may experience include:

  • Stomach problems, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting
  • Headaches
  • Excessive sweating, fever
  • Tremors, heart palpitations
  • Interrupted sleep
  • Stress, anxiety, mood swings, foggy thinking
  • Increased blood pressure and heart rate
  • Sensory hallucinations
  • Mental confusion, irritability
  • Seizures
  • Delirium tremens

Getting to The Root of Alcohol Addiction

If you or someone you love is struggling with alcohol addition, you may have wondered how it happened. There are many factors that can cause alcohol addiction, such as genetics, environment, peer pressure, abuse, neglect, mental disorders, etc. When you begin treatment at our alcohol rehab, those factors that are unique to you will be explored and treated with help from our esteemed counselors and therapists. At Legacy Healing Center, we provide a series of psychological treatments, plus, we also treat various health conditions with medications. 

You can expect to attend individual counseling sessions that will delve deep into the reasons that caused you to begin drinking in the first place. In addition, rehab also consists of group counseling sessions and in some cases, family counseling. Coming to terms with issues unique to your situation, and learning how to reconcile them, is a vital part of the recovery process.

Overcoming Addiction with Therapy

Another therapy unique to the recovery process is behavioral therapy, which explores your negative thought and behavior patterns that sabotage your well-being and feed your addiction. Once you become aware of these negative types of thoughts and behavior, you can begin to change them into positive thoughts and actions that will support your recovery. 

Relapse prevention is another type of treatment that makes you aware of your initial reactions to triggers, stress, toxic people, anger, cravings, etc. These triggers are often what provokes you to drink, or relapse, so it is important to learn how to cope with problems in a healthy, constructive way.

You will also attend group therapy where you will share stories and ideas with peers in similar situations as yourself. Group therapy provides an opportunity to connect with others, hear different points of view, and build a strong support group for each other.
