Detox Help for an Alcoholic
Withdrawal from alcohol can sometimes have very serious symptoms, which is why many alcoholics seeking treatment first complete a medically-superfised detox procedure.
Heavy daily drinkers may experience feeling shaky and are at risk of having a seizure if the detox is not handled properly in a safe environment.
The most common protocol for alcoholic detoxification is the administration of a benzodiazepine such as Ativan, Librium, Valium, Xanax, Klonopin or other drug in this category while tapering off the doses each day so that the person's body doesn't go into shock or become dependent on the prescriptions either.
