Signs and Symptoms of Alcoholism

Alcohol is one of the most abused drugs in America, as it is not only socially acceptable in our culture, but it is also available for purchase anywhere from corner stores to restaurants. Many Tampa residents enjoy a drink every once in a while but may be wondering whether their alcohol consumption is slipping into addiction territory, requiring alcohol rehab in Tampa.

Some of the significant signs and symptoms of an addiction to alcohol include:

  • Drinking in the morning, alone, or in secret; feeling guilty about drinking
  • Craving alcohol or having withdrawal symptoms without it
  • Uncontrollable mood swings and irritability
  • Prioritizing drinking over your responsibilities, interests, or other people’s needs
  • Continuing to drink even when it causes health, family, and money problems
  • Being unable to stop drinking or control how much you drink when you get started

Alcohol Detox Tampa

Detoxing from alcohol should never be attempted at home. The physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms can easily overwhelm you, causing you to relapse, and they can escalate to dangerous levels quickly. It is not a question of how strong-willed you are. Alcohol withdrawal is a brain chemical imbalance that can cause mild symptoms like:

  • Confusion
  • Sweating
  • Tremors
  • Headache
  • Increased heart rate
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia

These brain chemical changes can also cause high fever and seizures. They can escalate further into delirium tremens, which include symptoms like hallucinations, confusion, agitation and lead to death in a percentage of patients.

To ensure you remain safe when detoxing, a medically assisted treatment (MAT) program for detox followed by alcohol rehab in Tampa will ensure you have 24-hour medical care. Your treatment will include prescription medications like acamprosate, naltrexone, and disulfiram that can keep you comfortable, block the effects of alcohol, and allow you to rest as addiction specialists monitor you. Therapy, counseling, and dual diagnosis treatments are also provided during MAT to assist with the psychological aspects of addiction.
