Alcohol Detox Centers Provide Treatment for Withdrawal Symptoms

When a habitually heavy drinker stops consuming alcohol suddenly, he or she is subject to uncomfortable and even life-threatening withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal occurs because habitual use of alcohol inhibits brain activity. When alcohol is abruptly removed and brain activity resumes, stress hormones are overproduced and the patient’s central nervous system becomes overexcited. Aggressive behavior, tremors, changes in heartbeat and blood pressure, and a host of other symptoms result. Seizures and delirium tremens are among the most threatening effects.

At alcohol detox centers , treatment for severe withdrawal symptoms usually includes anti-anxiety drugs known as benzodiazepines. These drugs inhibit nerve-cell excitability in the brain and reduce the risk of seizures. The patient must be carefully monitored and dosage adjusted according to need, in order to prevent a secondary addiction to the drug. Anti-seizure medications and beta blockers (to slow the heart rate) are sometimes used in conjunction with anti-anxiety medications.

Drugs are generally administered intravenously, so that they can take effect quickly and in appropriate dosages. Injections of vitamin B1 are often administered as well, to prevent Kosakoff’s psychosis, a common withdrawal symptom characterized by hallucinations and highly aggressive behavior.
