Typical Symptoms of Alcohol Withdrawal

Withdrawal symptoms can vary from mild to severe, typically including anxiety, sweats, elevated pulse and blood pressure, tremors, and agitation. In severe cases, patients may experience hallucinations and seizures.

Medications Employed in Detox and for Maintaining Sobriety:

We advocate a collaborative approach to detoxification, involving ongoing dialogue with our patients and their families to ensure a supportive recovery process tailored to each individual's circumstances.
