If you have begun consuming beer, liquor, and wine on a regular basis and in ever-increasing amounts, you are at risk for developing an addiction to alcohol. When alcohol addiction develops, you can begin to suffer a number of damaging consequences to the many areas of your life, and attempting to stop drinking on your own can become extremely challenging.

While some people are successful at ending their alcohol abuse on their own, many more often require professional care found at a treatment center. The reason for this is that as time passes and drinking continues, your body can develop a tolerance to alcohol, which then requires you to consume more alcohol and in greater amounts more frequently. Once your body becomes used to the presence of alcohol, it can become unable to function without it. This dangerous cycle shows that a chemical dependency has formed, and when use is ceased, physical and mental side effects can develop, which can be extremely painful, possibly causing you to go back to your use in an effort to calm these effects.

However, if you come to the decision that you would like to obtain treatment for your alcohol addiction, there is help available. At MeadowWood Behavioral Health Hospital near Wilmington, DE, we can provide you with a number of services, specifically detoxification (or detox), which can help improve the quality of your recovery, allowing you to move along in the process of ending your alcohol addiction for good.


Long-term benefits of alcohol detox at MeadowWood in New Castle, DE

If you are addicted to alcohol, it can be vital to obtain treatment from professionals, as ignoring issues such as mental health problems, environmental factors, cravings, and withdrawal symptoms can perpetuate an ongoing addiction.

However, if you make the brave decision to get treatment that includes detox at a center where professionals can assist you on your journey, you can achieve the following:

  • Your risk for relapse minimizes, provided that the treatment center you attend does not allow any access to alcohol or other mind-altering, addictive substances
  • Your cravings to continue to drink become lessened
  • The health risks that you were once more likely to develop are decreased
  • Your overall health will improve as alcohol is removed from your system
  • Physical withdrawal symptoms are minimized
  • Your ability to think clearly is restored, allowing you to focus on achieving other recovery goals

Your wellbeing while in detox at a treatment center will be supervised closely by medical professionals to ensure that you are being appropriately cared for. Doctors, nurses, and nurse practitioners are able to ensure that the detox and additional services you receive are effective and safe.

If you do not obtain treatment that includes detox for your alcohol addiction, you can experience devastating effects that can completely alter the course of your life. Continuing to consume large amounts of beer, liquor, or wine can not only impact your physical health in a negative manner, but it can also affect your psychological wellbeing. Most importantly, being addicted to alcohol increases your risk of overdosing, which can be deadly.

Also referred to as alcohol poisoning, an overdose happens when too much alcohol is consumed. Many other health issues can stem from the continued abuse of alcohol and stand in the way of you living a happy, healthy life. Therefore, considering professional treatment for detox can be critical in ensuring that these risks are eliminated when you stop your drinking.

What Past Clients Say

I came here during the worst time of my life. I had so much anxiety coming in but the girls in the admissions area were so pleasant and answered all my questions. The hospital was clean and staff were friendly and helpful on the unit. The medicine they gave me helped so much, and I finally feel like myself again. If you’re willing to participate and go to all the groups, you will get something out of the program. I went right from inpatient to their day program for a week afterwards, and that helped me stay focused too.
