Detox can be scary, and the fear of what the process entails is one of the biggest reasons someone suffering may avoid getting help. When looking for alcohol rehab centers in Fair Lawn or nearby, keep an eye out for locations that guide their patients through a safe detox process.

Here’s some information about alcohol detox:2

  • Chronic, heavy drinking can result in an adaptation to the presence of alcohol known as physiological dependence. Suddenly quitting drinking can result in an uncomfortable, hyper-aroused state of central nervous system activity as the body strives to retain a sense of normalcy.
  • The severity of a person’s alcohol withdrawal symptoms will depend on how much alcohol that person consumed on a regular basis. The heaviest drinkers will most likely experience the most severe symptoms.
  • Initial alcohol withdrawal symptoms during the first 3 to 6 hours after the last drink are relatively mild, including slight trembling and increased anxiety.
  • Once people hit the 24-hour mark, withdrawal symptoms become more severe. The patient could experience nausea, stomach cramps, vomiting and violent tremors.
  • By the 72-hour mark, most withdrawal symptoms have subsided and the patient starts to feel normal again, although delirium tremens (a dangerous form of withdrawal) may persist for up to 96 hours.
  • Due to the severity of withdrawal symptoms, it’s very important that a person suffering from alcohol addiction withdraw under the guidance of medical professionals. They can help ease the discomfort and danger associated with some of the most severe symptoms of withdrawal.

You’ve already made the important first step in this process; you’re looking for ways to help you or your loved one suffering from alcohol addiction. Browse our directory for the information you need to ensure your loved one has a safe and successful transition back to health.

Getting clean from Pain Pills, Pain Pills, alcohol or any other substance you or your loved one is addicted to takes an individualized treatment plan. Two options of addiction treatment centers in Fair Lawn can help you succeed: either In-patient or Out-patient Rehabilitation. Residential treatment offers long-run gains with extended stays in a top rehabilitation program. Outpatient programs may be convenient, but lack the stability and resources of 28-day programs to become clean and sober. Ultimately, the choice is yours, and we are here to help you find the best fit.

Removing yourself from the environment of the substance abuse can help eliminate distractions and temptations that prevent total recovery.

Offering resort-like features, the top programs help achieve a physical, mental and emotional recovery.
