You Can Break the Hold Alcohol Has on Your Life
There was a time when an alcoholic drink or two relaxed you and made you more comfortable in social situations. Soon you found yourself drinking every day, but you rationalized that you could “stop anytime.”
That time is gone. You now drink daily. Or maybe you’re a binge drinker. You decide to have a drink, then another and before you know it, you’re totally wasted. Your ability to stop at one drink is gone.
Alcohol addiction has begun to destroy your relationships with your family and friends. You find it difficult to concentrate. You’re always tired. If you don’t drink, you feel anxious, shaky, nauseous. Your job performance suffers. If you’re in school, your grades start slipping because of the time you spend drinking and the deteriorating effect it has on you mentally and physically.
Having a drink is no longer a choice, it’s a priority.
Take Control of Your Life Again
You may have tried to stop on your own and failed. Remember, it was not you who failed, it was the method you used that failed you.
Alcohol detox is extremely difficult and can even be life-threatening. “Delirium tremens,” a severe form of withdrawal, can cause hallucinations, agitation, fever, confusion and even seizures. Cardiac symptoms, such as palpitations and arrhythmia, can occur. Common withdrawal symptoms include depression, anxiety, fatigue, shakiness, difficulty concentrating, headaches, mood swings, sweating, nausea, vomiting, insomnia and/or nightmares, vomiting and loss of appetite.
Detox at Cliffside Malibu Treatment Center minimizes the symptoms of withdrawal. A professional team especially trained in drug and alcohol detox will supervise your withdrawal. Prescription medication may be used to alleviate your symptoms.
