What Is An Alcohol Detox Program?
Detox is the natural process occurring within the body when it attempts to rid your system of toxins after excessive and long-term alcohol consumption. This alcohol detox should happen in a setting where you feel safe and comfortable and can be monitored to guard against and treat any and all alcohol withdrawal symptoms you may experience at the alcohol detox center. Alcohol detox is usually accompanied by thoughtfully administered medication to help you with the most severe alcohol withdrawal symptoms, around-the-clock medical observation, and a myriad of therapies to address the abuse of alcohol itself and the additional underlying mental health issues that should be resolved. This is necessary to prevent a relapse after the alcohol withdrawal.
Before undergoing an alcohol detox with New Start Recovery, clients will work closely with our trained medical team to review their complete history of alcohol consumption, as well as any drugs being used, and their entire medical history. This detailed information will allow our staff to develop a highly personalized treatment plan.
The next step in an alcohol detox is the medication that will help mitigate the impact of withdrawal and treat co-occurring issues that may be at the root of your alcohol dependency. Finally, once you are safe and stable and the alcohol has been removed from your body, you will undergo various counseling to teach you a healthy way forward to recover fully. Some of the therapies you may experience at New Start Recovery include:
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Family therapy
- Dual diagnosis
