West Linn Alcohol Rehab Center, people in a circle raising and holding handsWhat Is Alcohol Withdrawal Like?

Alcohol is a drug. Like all drugs, it alters your brain so that you crave the alcohol and feel you need it.

This increases the amount you can drink without feeling its effects. But it also makes your body dependent on alcohol for survival. Because of that, alcohol withdrawal is especially hard on the body.

In addition to its intensity, it also lasts longer than other withdrawals. For this reason, you should always speak with doctors at Crestview Recovery, your West Linn Alcohol Rehab Center, to begin developing a longer-term recovery plan before you attempt to go through withdrawal.

So what can you expect? In the first six hours, you’ll likely experience:

  • Powerful headaches
  • Shakiness
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Inability to sleep
  • Sweats

After about 12-24 hours, you may start having intense hallucinations. These may progress to seizures as you enter days one and two. After a few days, some people experience delusions and more severe symptoms like heart irregularities and confusion.

The worst of it is usually over after 72 hours. But if you are a heavy drinker or have been drinking a long time, you could experience these things for a month.

How Do You Know If You Need Alcohol Treatment

It’s not easy to admit you have a problem and that you’re not in control anymore. So we recognize your courage for coming here to learn about alcohol addiction.

Generally, an addiction professional will ask you to look at how alcohol abuse impacts several vital areas of your life in addition to whether you can stop knowing the damage it’s causing.

Those areas include:

  • Relationships with family
  • Finances
  • Career
  • Health

You can take an assessment right now of these areas to begin to answer the question yourself. Am I addicted to alcohol?

Then ask yourself this one. I’ve said I could quit anytime. But is that really true?

Finally, consider this. If A, B, and C that I care about are being hurt because of my alcohol usage, wouldn’t I have quit by now if I could?

A West Linn Oregon Alcohol Addiction Treatment Center will employ this and other techniques to help you explore your alcohol addiction, why you use, and why you want to quit for good.

Crestview Recovery will share with you valuable tools you can use to reclaim control over your addiction and your life. You’ll practice these tools during treatment at our West Linn Oregon Alcohol Addiction Treatment Center. They’re proven, and they work if you put them to use in your life.
