Alcohol Withdrawal

Alcoholism is a dangerous condition, often more dangerous than drug addiction due to alcohol’s social status and minimal regulations. Dana Point Rehab Campus can treat alcohol withdrawal in a supportive and safe environment, helping you battle addiction effective and embrace long-term sobriety.

What happens to body when you stop drinking?

The first natural reaction is experiencing withdrawal. The withdrawal’s intensity and symptoms will depend on several factors, including addiction severity and length, your age and overall health, etc. Long-term, your body will begin to recover, as you will experience significant lifestyle changes, including increased appetite, better sleeping, more balanced behavior, etc.

What happens after 3 days of no alcohol?

There are two main things that can happen after quitting your alcohol addiction for three days in a row: the withdrawal will lose steam, or it will aggravate. There’s no telling which category you fit in, but one thing is for sure – you need to undergo rehab at our facility. Our professionals will supervise the detox process to improve your comfort and safety throughout the procedure, no matter severe your addiction might be.

Can your body go into shock when you stop drinking?

Yes, it can happen, especially with people dealing with aggravated and prolonged addiction. Quitting cold turkey can trigger Delirium Tremens, a severe withdrawal symptom including convulsions, high fever, paranoia, etc. To avoid that, we advise you to only detox in a reputed facility, under close supervision. This will prevent any potential health complications that may arise during the detox process.

What are the side-effects of not drinking?

The withdrawal side-effects can be numerous, ranging from mild to moderate and severe. Headaches, nausea, irritability, and intense cravings are generally the first signs, but the symptoms will worsen over time, depending on your addiction’s severity. You may even experience seizures, paranoia, depression, and cognitive issues in some cases, requiring immediate medical assistance.

Can I treat alcohol addiction myself?

You probably can if it’s a mild addiction with few withdrawal symptoms. All bets are off when considering moderate-to-severe addictions. We advise coming to our facility for detox and rehab to have better chances at quitting your addiction faster and remaining sober for longer.

Will alcohol rehab help me get sober?

The rehabilitation treatment’s goal is to help you overcome the withdrawal phase and embark on a transformative journey. Ultimately, however, the treatment’s success largely depends on your determination and willpower along the way. So long as you are determined to quit drinking for good and battle the alcohol withdrawal no matter what, the treatment will be a success.
