Detox & Withdrawal

During the duration of the withdrawal period our medical staff will be there to assure your safety and comfort. We will do whatever attainable to make your detox as relaxing as possible. Withdrawals can start within hours of the last drink. Some signs of withdrawals are: tremors, nausea, chills, and joint pain. When experiencing those effects, it is a sign that the body is beginning the detox process.
Your loved one might have gone through or have heard of going through withdrawals and now dread the thought of detoxing. Withdrawing and detoxing is a frightening and displeasing chapter in any alcohol abuser’s treatment plan. It is common that your loved one might not know how to function without that first drink to get them going in the morning. Imagining a long period of time without alcohol could seem unattractive to anyone who has a problem with abusing alcohol.
Treatment and Rehabilitation
When your loved one’s body is freed from the chemicals of alcohol during the detox phase, the next step in their treatment is rehabilitation.
A Better Today is an impatient rehabilitation center. We provide 24-hour supervision for your loved one’s entire stay. There are countless benefits for an inpatient treatment program. A part of your loved one’s treatment plan is that they will be paired with a therapist that best suits them and their history with alcohol. All our therapists have education that is specialized in alcohol abuse counseling and co-occurring disorders.

We will work on taking all of the tragedies and catastrophic events life has thrown their way and turn them into reasons to find new passions and ambitions.
It is also recommended to travel during treatment and rehabilitation. Alcohol abusers tend to shift back to what is comfortable. Removing a loved one from the area which they know is very helpful.

It is advantageous because it will allow them to be free of distractions so they can really focus on their recovery.
