Where Can I Get Help / What Can I Take?
If you are concerned that when stopping the use of alcohol you will be overwhelmed by painful symptoms of withdrawal and cravings you should contact your primary care doctor for your treatment options. The objective of treating alcohol abuse problems is to relieve symptoms of withdrawal, prevent any complications and to provide therapy to help you stop drinking and prevent relapse.
Pharmaceutical therapies are widely used in the treatment of alcohol withdrawal. Keeping you comfortable during the beginning stages of recovery is important to ensure that you will be able to maintain your sobriety. By giving you a sedative medication the symptoms of withdrawal and cravings will be controlled. In an outpatient setting a medication to prevent alcohol use by inducing vomiting can too be used. During this time you will be detoxed from alcohol, cleansed of the chemicals and toxins from its use and prepared for other aspects to the treatment process.
