When you’re addicted to alcohol, life can be a daily struggle. You put so much energy into holding things together, whether it’s your job, your family or both. In some cases, you may feel that all hope has been lost. No matter where you are in your life right now, Spring Gardens Recovery in Spring Hill, Florida provides hope that things will get better with our alcohol detox program.
Common Questions To Ask Yourself to Determine If You Need Alcohol Detox
It isn’t always easy to tell when you cross the line between normal alcohol use and abuse. Here are some common questions to ask yourself:
- Do I feel agitated, anxious or sick when I haven't had a drink in a while?
- Have I tried to quit drinking, but was unable to?
- Do I often drink more than I intended to?
- Have I avoided social situations where I knew there wouldn't be alcohol, or do I feel uncomfortable socializing without alcohol?
- Do I find myself having to apologize for things I said/did while I was drinking?
- Does it take me more alcohol to get buzzed than it used to?
- Do I have periods of time that I don't remember, or do people tell me I have done things when I am drunk that I can't recall?
- Have I had difficulties at work or school because of drinking, or being hungover?
- Have my family or friends informed me that my drinking is out of control, or that they feel unsafe around me when I drink? What was my response?
If you answered yes to even a couple of these questions, it’s a good idea to seek the help you deserve. The truth is that we all need help with something at some point. In fact, it takes far more courage and strength to reach out and ask for help.
Getting Help at an Alcohol Detox
There are risks involved with quitting alcohol abruptly. If you’ve been drinking for a long period of time—particularly in large amounts—you may have become physically dependent. How quickly a dependence develops varies from person to person. If you try going a day, or even several hours, without drinking and found that you started to feel ill, then you likely have a physical alcohol dependence.
When this happens, it’s important to seek the help of professional alcohol detox services. Quitting abruptly can lead to health complications, so it’s important that you don’t try it alone. Spring Gardens Recovery can help you undergo alcohol withdrawal safely and comfortably.
What to Expect at Our Alcohol Detox Center
Your first day at our alcohol detox starts with intake, a standard procedure that allows our facility to learn more about you. It also allows you to get acquainted with staff, tour the facility and learn more about the detox process. Our staff will ask you some simple questions about your alcohol use, your medical history and any current issues or concerns you may have.
We’ll pair you with an experienced, compassionate counselor who will work with you to develop your own individual detox treatment plan. Your counselor will be your go-to person should you have any concerns or need to talk.
Within a few hours of your last drink, you may begin to experience physical and mental withdrawal symptoms. Depending on your individual treatment plan, medical professionals may administer medication to ease your discomfort. Caring, compassionate staff will be on hand to listen and offer support.
