Individuals with serious alcohol use disorder often have to drink every few hours in order to prevent withdrawal symptoms from occurring, which can create interruptions in their relationships, employment or daily functioning.
According to the National Institute of Health, 29.5 million people ages 12 and older had alcohol use disorder (AUD) in 2021. Men were more likely to have AUD, with 16.6 million males having AUD in 2021, compared to 13 million women.
For anyone who experiences severe withdrawal symptoms from alcohol, it’s important to avoid suddenly stopping alcohol consumption without medical support. Since the body has become chemically dependent on alcohol, withdrawal symptoms from quitting abruptly can cause immediate medical complications and possibly death. The safest way to quit drinking and manage any withdrawal symptoms is to enroll in a medical detox program.
While the withdrawal process may seem daunting, Freedom Detox provides medically-monitored care 24 hours a day to ensure our clients transition through withdrawal as efficiently and safely as possible. We offer group and individual therapy during your stay at Freedom, and each client leaves with a collaborative discharge and aftercare plan to effectively continue their recovery journey.
