Alcohol Treatment Canada

have a drinkThe condition known as alcoholism is a degenerative and invasive condition. Although alcohol is an legal drug its still a drug, to which one can gain both physical and mental dependencies. The fact that alcohol is legal and widely accepted contributes to its use and abuse. Alcoholism is a condition that often goes unnoticed for a great number of years. Alcoholism is the single most dangerous substance to detoxify an individual from once a physical dependency has begun.

The term most commonly used is the D-T’s (delirium tremens) this is a situation where an alcoholic begins to shake uncontrollably due to the lack of alcohol which there body has now become dependent on. Other side effects of alcohol withdrawal are Seizures, Heart Attack and Stroke. When detoxifying anyone from alcohol, very special care should be taken to ensure that none of these health risks are encountered. Success ratio differs greatly between the various platforms of rehabilitation and low success can often be attributed to an inadequate selection of rehabilitation facility. For example, if a person who is not religious were to try and deal with his or her addiction by way of a religious program, much of the program’s curriculum would be lost on that individual.

The psychological aspects of alcoholism are often one of the most prominent reasons for continued use. In most cases where rehabilitation is successful the success can in large part be attributed to gaining a real understanding of addiction and its idiosyncrasies. Learning to understand why alcohol became a part of your life in the first place and what was the quintessential barrier that the alcohol seemed to allow you to overcome. If one does not strive to attain a good understanding of his or her own addiction they will be less likely to recognize and avoid a reversion to their habits and be unable to overcome barriers in a healthy productive manner.Alcohol poses one of the most dangerous forms of withdrawal. An abrupt cessation of alcohol (going “cold turkey”) will result in withdrawal symptoms within hours and the time necessary for complete alcohol detox can range from 3 to 14 days. Alcohol detox can result in a variety of physical and/or psychological symptoms. Mild withdrawal symptoms include headaches, nausea, vomiting, perspiration, restlessness, agitation, loss of appetite and insomnia.

More severe symptoms may disrupt the autonomic system, resulting in seizures (convulsions), visual or auditory hallucinations and the DTs (Delirium Tremens). It is estimated that 1 in 4 patients are at a high risk for a withdrawal seizure if not medically treated during the detox phase. For this reason, alcohol detox frequently involves medical detox; that is, medications that have similar effects to alcohol are given to reduce the risk of seizure.
