You now realize you have a problem and you’ve made an excellent choice. You decided to stop drinking. Many people have tried to do it on their own, over and over and over again, but with no success. Remember – alcoholism is an ugly addiction, which often requires special help from trained professionals. The withdrawal symptoms can be brutal, but we can help. If you or a loved one is ready to take that journey towards an alcohol-free life, call the Empire Detox, a premier outpatient alcohol withdrawal treatment center in Coral Springs.
Life, along with its daily stressors can be tough. We get that. And that’s why we are determined to help our patients rise above the noise. But before we get into withdrawal symptoms, let’s examine what alcohol is doing to your body.
According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, alcohol enters your bloodstream the second you drink it. You’ll feel its immediate effects within about 10-minutes. Your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level, is the amount of alcohol in your bloodstream and as you drink, that number goes up. The higher your BAC, the more impaired you become by alcohol’s effects. Here’s is what can happen:
- Reduced inhibitions
- Slurred speech
- Motor impairment
- Memory problems
- Concentration problems
- Breathing problems
If you drink over a long period, you may experience longer-term effects such as the following:
- Car crashes and other accidents
- Risky behavior
- Violent behavior
- Suicide and homicide
For some heavy drinkers, giving up alcohol cold turkey is not a good idea. It could be dangerous without medical intervention. Here are some of the alcohol withdrawal symptoms, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration:
- Tremors (shakiness)
- Agitation (extreme nervousness)
- Auditory or visual hallucinations (hearing or seeing things that aren’t there)
- Can also be life-threatening, even deadly
