Alcohol Detox

Las Vegas Alcohol Detox

Get Clean at The Nestled Recovery Center

Going through alcohol detox is the first step to a lasting recovery. During detox, you will remove the alcohol from your system safely, and our compassionate team will help you manage the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal. While many people can enjoy the relaxed environment of social detox, others will need medical detox. This is because alcohol withdrawal can lead to a serious condition called delirium tremens (DTs), which can be life-threatening.

To detox safely and comfortably, you need a detox center that can handle your needs. Fortunately, The Nestled Recovery Center is ready to help you.

Call us at (702) 299-6406 today to experience addiction recovery in an oasis destination.

What Is Alcohol Detox?

Detoxification occurs naturally when your body removes waste and toxins from your system. Alcohol detox simply refers to your body removing alcohol from your system. Unfortunately, people who have been drinking heavily may have adapted to having alcohol in their systems, so their brains and bodies may be confused about what to do next.

Alcohol depresses your central nervous system, so heavy alcohol use can cause your body to adapt to central nervous system depression. Once you stop drinking, your body will continue to behave as if it is under a depressant – this is what causes withdrawal symptoms.

Most importantly, alcohol detox is the first step in overcoming an alcohol addiction.

What Are the Symptoms of Alcohol Withdrawal?

The symptoms of alcohol withdrawal can begin within 6 hours of your last drink and are most difficult in the first 48 to 72 hours of your sobriety.

Signs and symptoms of alcohol withdrawal include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Shakiness
  • Tremors
  • Exhaustion
  • Mood swings
  • Inability to think clearly
  • Nightmares
  • Dilated pupils
  • Headaches
  • Sweating
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Pale skin
  • Faster heart rate
  • And more

In severe cases of alcohol withdrawal, you may experience hallucinations or see and hear things that aren’t there. Some people describe feeling like bugs are crawling on their skin.

What Is Delirium Tremens (DTs)?

Hallucinations are a key symptom of delirium tremens (DTs). DTs is a severe form of alcohol withdrawal and the result of a sudden change to your nervous system. You are more likely to develop DTs if you have been drinking excessively (1.8-2.4 liters of wine, 3.3-3.8 liters of beer, or 0.5 liters of hard alcohol) every day for several months, or if you have been using alcohol regularly for more than 10 years.

Symptoms of DTs include:

  • Delirium (sudden severe confusion)
  • Body tremors
  • Changes in mental function
  • Agitation and irritability
  • Deep sleep (that lasts for 1 or more days)
  • Stupor, sleepiness, or fatigue
  • Excitement or fear
  • Bursts of energy
  • Hallucinations
  • Quick mood changes
  • Restlessness
  • Sensitivity to light, sound, and touch
  • Fever
  • High blood pressure
  • Seizures

Left untreated, DTs can become fatal. Seizures can occur with or without other symptoms of DTs and are most often generalized tonic-clonic seizures, or grand mal seizures, that involve the entire body.

DTs is most common in the first 12 to 48 hours after your last drink, and it may be difficult to predict.

To mitigate and manage withdrawal symptoms, you need to pursue the appropriate treatment.
