Acute Withdrawal (First Six to Eight Hours)
We’ve seen severe withdrawal symptoms like delirium tremens, extreme hallucinations, and seizures occur during the first phase at our drug and alcohol detox centers in New Jersey. This phase starts in the early 6-8 hours after the last drink.
Phase 2: Post-Acute Withdrawal (1-2 Days after last drink)
The more severe phase 2 symptoms usually occur after the first phase symptoms and start to show up one or two days after the last alcoholic beverage. Some of the common side effects are an increase in an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia), blood pressure, higher body temperature, and rapid breathing. Aside from the physical symptoms, the person detoxing may show more noticeable mental issues than in phase 1, such as confusion, irritability, and rapid mood swings.
Phase 3: Prolonged Symptoms
People experience prolonged alcohol detox symptoms such as anxiety, sleeping disorders, and fatigue; the condition may last for several months. Our alcohol rehabilitation program includes an evidence-based, medically supervised detox process that ensures the safety and a smooth alcohol rehab experience. If you are considering this process at home, please call our alcohol detox centers in NJ. We can safely detox your body with the least amount of pain.
