Detox from Alcohol Atlantic City NJ

Generally detox from alcohol occurs in a hospital or rehab facility where the patient can be observed and monitored 24 hours a day. Sedation, tranquilizers and therapeutic alternatives are used to help the patient through the symptoms as they arise. Support is essential, because the patient’s body is telling the patient that all the painful symptoms would be relieved with alcohol.

DT stands for delirium tremens, Latin for the “trembling madness.” The “DTs” are an extreme condition wherein the alcoholic’s body starts shutting down, and the alcoholic no longer recognizes his surroundings. Alcoholics can die from this.

Treatment for withdrawal (or alcohol poisoning) is called detox , specifically detox from alcohol.

(Detox from other drugs will incur a different course of treatment.)

Generally detox from alcohol occurs in a hospital or rehab facility where the patient can be observed and monitored 24 hours a day.
