Alcohol is such a common part of our society and culture that many people do not think of it as a drug. The truth is, although alcohol is legal, it’s one of the most addictive, widely abused drugs in the world.
In fact, 7% of Americans 18 years old and older have an Alcohol Use Disorder. And in the United States, almost 88,000 people die each year from alcohol-related causes — the third largest cause of preventable deaths.
If you’re struggling with alcoholism, you may have tried to cut back on your own or quit cold turkey. But serious withdrawal symptoms that range from uncomfortable to deadly can make self detoxing both challenging and risky. At its worst, detoxifying off of alcohol can lead to seizures or a life-threatening condition known as Delirium Tremens (DTs). In the past, to reduce these risks most people were hospitalized to detox from alcohol.
Fortunately, an easier path to recovery is here.
At TCI, we’ve developed an outpatient program that allows you to safely and comfortably detox in only 3 days.
How Does TCI’s Alcohol Detox Work?
Using alcohol for a sustained period of time can deplete crucial nutrients from your brain, and when left untreated, can lead to brain damage. So, we begin our alcohol detox by replenishing the vitamins and minerals your brain needs.
After restoring these nutrients, we’ll give you medicine to keep you calm, comfortable and safe as your blood alcohol level drops. After a few hours, you’ll go home. Then, for the next 2 days, you’ll return to our office until you completely detox.
Once your body is free of alcohol, we’ll help you begin your new life in recovery.
You have the option to start Naltrexone Therapy, which uses a non-addictive, non-narcotic medicine to prevent cravings during your recovery. Depending on your unique needs and circumstances, we’ll recommend that you continue Naltrexone therapy for 6 – 12 months.
Despite medical advancements, medicine alone will not cure alcoholism. In order to stay sober, we highly recommend a comprehensive recovery program, including individual counseling and/or a regular 12-step program. At TCI, we’ll help you make the first move to Get Clean and then help you Stay Clean.
