In severe cases, stopping alcohol cold turkey can be fatal. It is highly recommended you seek professional help when detoxing alcohol, as a specialist can examine your behaviors and determine what the right course of action should be.
If withdraw symptoms are severe enough after alcohol detox, you will likely need prescription medication to help combat the mental and physical effects. In some cases, alcohol withdrawal can lead to alcoholic liver disease and additional detoxification and treatment will be needed.
Depending on the severity of alcohol withdrawal, you may or may not have to be heavily monitored during detoxification. If you are planning on quitting alcohol have any questions, feel free to contact us below.
