A long-term alcohol use leads to higher tolerance and withdrawal symptoms when the use is terminated. These symptoms can range from mild to life-threatening or even fatal. Therefore, the doctor may recommend or the patient may prefer to treat withdrawal symptoms with the use of medications while being closely monitored in a Withdrawal Treatment Unit.
Alcohol withdrawal treatment takes up to 14 days. During the course of treatment, the doctor will regularly prescribe the medication and the nursing staff will continuously supervise the health of the patient.
After the physical symptoms have been controlled, mental health professionals can help reduce some of the more powerful emotional side effects of withdrawal. Comprehensive treatment is ensured by the possibility to attend counselling sessions with the specialists. Psychologists and social workers hold group and individual consultations to inform the patients on various aspects of alcohol addiction, possibilities of a long-term treatment and rehabilitation and build motivation to recover. Alcohol withdrawal treatment is the first step towards recovery.
Should you prefer to receive treatment anonymously, the service is paid. Service price list is provided in the Paid Services section.
