Alcohol Detox in Arizona

Alcohol detox in Arizona is a common first step in addiction recovery.

This is particularly true for those entering inpatient or residential rehab programs and others with lengthy, severe, or multiple addictions.

Because alcohol alters your brain chemistry, quitting cold turkey can be difficult and painful.

In some cases, it can even be dangerous.

Alcohol withdrawal symptoms are the cause of many relapses.

A monitored, safe, and medically-assisted detox at Pathfinders Recovery has paved the way for many individuals beginning their recovery journey.

With just one phone call, it can do the same for you.

Side Effects of Alcohol Detox in Arizona

Detox or withdrawal symptoms can vary depending on many individual factors.

How long you have been drinking, how often, and how much at one time can all alter these symptoms.

Another factor to consider is your family history with alcoholism.

Alcoholism is a largely genetic disease, and this biology has been linked to more than 50% of alcoholism cases in some studies. While the risk factors for developing alcoholism are often easily identified, predicting withdrawal symptoms can be a bit more difficult.

Some of the more common and milder alcohol detox symptoms include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Jumpiness
  • Tremors or shakiness in your hands
  • Mood swings
  • Nightmares
  • Headaches
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Insomnia
  • Excessive sweating

Our alcohol detox center in Arizona can help you overcome these withdrawal symptoms and many more.

While the alcohol withdrawal symptoms listed above can be uncomfortable or painful, they are not usually dangerous or life-threatening.

However, the more severe side effects that are linked to alcohol detoxes can be.

This is another reason to seek a professional setting for your alcohol detox in Arizona.

We can help ease mild to severe withdrawal symptoms to keep you safe and make it easier to begin healing.
