ALCOHOL WITHDRAWAL

Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome (AWS) is a condition that affects people suffering from alcoholism or alcohol abuse who are either detoxing from the drug or have greatly reduced their alcoholic intake. According to the National Institutes of Health, if untreated, 6 percent of alcohol-dependent patients develop symptoms of withdrawal.

Some of the common signs and symptoms of withdrawal include:

  • Seizures
  • Anxiety
  • Nausea
  • High blood pressure
  • Hallucinations
  • Delirium tremens

If you, or a loved one, are suffering from an alcohol addiction or withdrawal, seek help immediately. Some stages of acute withdrawal can lead to severe side-effects and death. Call Drug Treatment Center Finder’s 24-7 hotline at 855-619-8070 to speak with one of our specialists about seeking treatment, or check out our locator to find a drug treatment center in your area.

What Causes Withdrawal?

As a person continues to drink more alcohol, his body eventually builds a tolerance. This tolerance causes them to drink more to feel the same effects before the tolerance. Eventually, withdrawal will occur when the person stops drinking alcohol. Withdrawal can occur consciously or obliviously for someone suffering from an alcohol addiction.

Whether a client is detoxing from alcohol at a treatment facility or someone with an alcohol use disorder has stopped drinking for a few days due to alcohol poison or kidney and liver failure, withdrawal will occur nearly two hours after the last drink and will last for up to 72 hours.

    BEER WITHDRAWAL


    Beer has become the quintessential alcohol beverage of almost every demographic in the US. It’s sold almost everywhere, and craft breweries continue to pop up in major cities across the country. Despite its popularity, beer drinkers are not excluded from becoming vulnerable to alcohol withdrawal or developing a subsequent drug addiction.

    LIQUOR WITHDRAWAL


    When it comes to hard liquor, such as vodka, Tequila, Hennessy, or Bourbon, withdrawal symptoms can be more severe than wine or beer as a person perpetually consumes a higher amount of alcohol. These drinks are often mixed with soda or juices to dilute the “hard” taste, but this popular mix only leads to a higher amount of liquor and sugar being consumed.

    WINE WITHDRAWAL


    Wine is an alcoholic beverage that is fermented from grape juice and other berries. It generally contains more alcohol than beer but less alcohol than hard liquor. Popular wines such as Moscato, Pinot Noir, Merlot, and Chardonnay have a sweeter taste and are commonly consumed at social gatherings, such as weddings, parties, and lounges. Although red wine is an antioxidant and is beneficial in moderation, too much of it will result in an alcohol addiction.
