Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms

Get Help for Withdrawal Symptoms of Drug and/or Alcohol Addiction

The most pressing concern for many people struggling with drug or alcohol addiction is the first days without a drink. Withdrawal symptoms can be severe, especially if you’ve been a heavy drinker for an extended time. Symptoms vary in their severity, but they can start as soon as eight hours after a last drink.

The most common symptoms are uncomfortable but relatively benign. They include anxiety, issues with mood, sleep disturbances, shakiness, and issues with thinking clearly.

However, there are more severe symptoms that you may experience. It can help to enroll in addiction treatment centers to cope with some of these symptoms and ease your discomfort:

  • Profuse sweating
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Severe headache
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Tremors
  • Hallucinations
  • Seizures
  • Fever

If you experience these symptoms, you may be more likely to turn to a drink, but you will be safe within our treatment program. Fortunately, there are a few things we can do to minimize these symptoms and make you more comfortable while you endure the detoxification process.

Using Medication-Assisted Treatment to Minimize Symptoms

One of the strongest tools in our arsenal that can minimize the symptoms you may experience in the early days without alcohol is medication-assisted treatment. This can be a multi-faceted approach to keep you comfortable and treat underlying conditions.

First, we can prescribe you something that helps with general withdrawal. For example, we may be able to offer medicine to help you sleep, to ease nausea and committing, or to break a fever. If you struggle with anxiety or mood issues, prescription drugs may be able to help.

There are also other options for the long-term treatment of alcohol use disorder, including:

These prescriptions don’t create new dependency issues and are great for the long-term treatment of substance abuse. If you think you could benefit from medication management, consider enrolling in our alcohol or drug rehab centers where you can safely start medication while we monitor your progress.

Proven Programs for Clients with Dual Diagnosis Conditions

Treating substance abuse likely doesn’t happen in a vacuum. There are often underlying conditions that contribute to drug or alcohol use such as anxiety, mood disorders, and other serious mental illnesses. If you’re concerned about your mental health in the days following alcohol addiction, we offer long-term help.

Our trained counselors and medical support staff monitor you for the signs and symptoms of other mental health conditions like anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. If we see that you’re struggling with more than alcohol use disorder, we are capable of offering robust treatment for both conditions.

This may include more medication management and intensive therapeutic intervention.

Treatment for Dual Diagnosis Conditions

Transition to a Lower Level of Care with Our Upscale Residential Program

Once you make it through the worst of your symptoms in our alcohol detox center, we can transition you to the next level of care: residential treatment. You can reside in our luxury facility full-time for a longer period, usually thirty to ninety days. During this time, you will have around-the-clock access to medical support and counselors.

When you aren’t ready to transition back to routines after your alcohol detox program, this is the next step.

We will continue to treat you with intensive services including one-on-one counseling, group sessions, and complementary therapies like equine therapy. Our inpatient treatment program ensures that you’ll be quite comfortable while you learn how to live without booze.

Does Insurance Cover Alcohol Detox and Substance Abuse Care?

Insurance Covered Alcohol Detox

One of the more pressing concerns for many of our clients is whether their health insurance is going to cover their treatment for alcohol and drug addiction. A detox is the first step of the recovery process, but nobody wants to go into debt to get the help they need.

The good news is that insurance may cover the cost of your treatment in part or in full.

Under the Affordable Care Act, substance abuse treatment is considered one of ten essential health benefits that must be covered.

That doesn’t mean that they have to cover it in its entirety. Rather, they must cover it to the same extent that they would cover medical or surgical intervention. Your individual insurance plan will dictate what is covered and how much you will pay out of pocket for Georgia drug and alcohol rehab.

Out-of-Pocket Costs for Drug or Alcohol Addiction Treatment

How do you know what will be covered by your insurance plan? A close examination of your policy will give you a good idea of what to expect. Start by looking at your deductible, which is the amount you pay out of pocket before insurance starts to kick in.

You may also have a coinsurance payment or a percentage that you must help pay.

Private health insurance companies work out payment rates with in-network facilities to minimize the cost of treatment for their clients. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t afford an out-of-network facility. You may be eligible for a sliding fee scale or payment assistance to start your addiction recovery process.

When you’re ready to get help for your withdrawal symptoms, contact our recovery advocates. In a quick and completely confidential phone call, we can verify your insurance benefits and let you know what to expect cost-wise from your recovery journey.
