Medical Alcohol Detox

Quoted From: https://www.ridgefieldrecovery.com/treatments/medically-assisted-detox/alcohol/

"Alcohol detox is typically the first phase of addiction treatment. During this stage, the body naturally removes alcohol from its system. In a detox facility, medical professionals might use medications to reduce painful or uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms and promote sleep.

For many people, completing a medical detox program is the best way to detox from alcohol. At an alcohol detox facility, doctors can cater to the specific needs of each patient. People who detox from alcohol at home might not have the knowledge or resources needed to deal with withdrawal symptoms, which can be dangerous in some cases."
