Detox from Alcohol Dover NH

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.
