Richmond Alcohol Detox

The Coleman Institute offers Alcohol Detox options in Richmond, VA

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 is one of the most addictive, widely abused drugs in the world. It is the third leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States with nearly 88,000 people dying from alcohol-related causes each year. Alcohol addiction is a significant issue that impacts millions of Americans.


Alcohol addiction is a disease. This means that when a person who is addicted to alcohol stops drinking, there are physiological withdrawal symptoms resulting from the chemical dependence on alcohol.


  • According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), an estimated 16 million people in the United States have Alcohol Use Disorder.
  • An estimated 88,000 Americans die annually from alcohol-related causes, making alcohol the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States.
  • In 2017, 26.4% of people ages 18 or older reported that they engaged in binge drinking in the past month.
  • In 2015, 47% of the 78,529 liver disease deaths among individuals ages 12 and older involved alcohol.
  • More than 10% of U.S. children live with a parent with alcohol problems according to a 2012 study.

Symptoms of Alcohol Withdrawal

When someone is addicted to alcohol, the brain’s internal wiring changes. Abruptly stopping alcohol use can be dangerous and lead to alcohol withdrawal symptoms. If not managed carefully, alcohol withdrawal can cause seizures, brain damage, and even death. Common symptoms of alcohol withdrawal include:

  • Headaches, Hallucinations, and Mood Changes
  • Tremors and Seizures
  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue and Insomnia
  • Gastrointestinal Disturbances
  • Heart Palpitations
  • Hyperthermia

If you are suffering from alcohol dependence or alcohol addiction, and have tried to quit on your own but the withdrawal symptoms are too much, we can help. Schedule a callback with one of our Patient Advocates to learn about our Alcohol Detox treatment in Richmond, VA works.
