Many people think that alcohol detox is as simple as going “cold turkey,” but this is not usually the case and could potentially be lethal. An integrative detoxification period is advised for those who have become addicted to alcohol.
Alcohol dependency can manifest itself in several ways, including:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Anxiety and sweating palms
- Headaches and dizziness
- Fatigue or exhaustion
- Rapid heartbeat and tremors
- D.T.s or delirium tremens, the medical term for a condition in which clients may hallucinate
Akua Mind & Body offers complete detoxification services for those with alcohol dependency. Our caring and professional staff can offer help with the common symptoms of alcohol withdrawal and support a return to sobriety.
