Alcohol abuse affects tens of millions of Americans. It’s estimated that 4% of the US population (about 12 million people) suffer from alcoholism, and an additional 4% are alcohol abusers.
The general population is unaware of just how serious the health issues associated with alcohol abuse can be, precisely the dangerous consequences of alcohol withdrawal. Alcoholics themselves underestimate the dangers of alcohol abuse, as only 10% of alcoholics seek any treatment.
Alcohol Detox rids the body of contaminants; this can be a complicated process and should be supervised by qualified addiction professionals. When an alcoholic stops drinking alcohol heavily, withdrawal sets in. The symptoms of withdrawal are painful and potentially life-threatening.
Initial Alcohol Detox Treatment
Detox patients are looked after thoroughly, with regular readings of vital signs, and multivitamins are often used to compensate for the nutrient deficiencies brought out by alcohol withdrawal.
Those suffering from alcohol withdrawal are also at risk of dehydration, so the caretaker must ensure that the patient gets the necessary fluids.

Battling the effects of detox is the scariest part of getting sober. The effort never ends, but it all gets easier from there.
