Causes of alcohol addiction withdrawal
The consumption of alcohol is a widely accepted practice for individuals over the age of 21 in the United States. Despite this prevalent acceptance, there are many instances in which alcohol consumption becomes problematic. Some individuals develop a pattern of drinking so frequently or in such excessive amounts that all aspects of their lives become affected. Their ability to function appropriately on a daily basis can become hindered, leading to upheaval in their home lives, with their careers, and regarding their finances. When such dysfunction arises as a direct result of alcohol consumption, it is likely that an addiction has developed and it’s necessary to find professional treatment at an alcohol addiction rehab center, such as The Rose of Newport Beach.
Signs of alcohol withdrawal
When someone has developed a tolerance to alcohol, she must consume increasingly greater amounts of the substance in order to achieve the desired effect. As this tolerance continues to strengthen, a woman will likely become physically dependent on alcohol. In other words, her body will become accustomed to the presence of alcohol in her system and, as a result, will rely on it in order to function. When this occurs, the absence of alcohol can result in the onset of withdrawal symptoms.
Why seek rehab for alcohol addiction withdrawal in Newport Beach, CA
When the consumption of alcohol is heavy or prolonged, and a physical dependence on the substance has subsequently developed, the cessation of that consumption can result in the onset of withdrawal symptoms. Alcohol withdrawal symptoms themselves will vary in type and intensity from one person to the next, but may include the following:
- Intense, overwhelming cravings for alcohol
- Increased pulse rate (greater than 100 beats per minute)
- Hand tremors
- Psychomotor agitation
- Transient visual, auditory, and/or tactile hallucinations or illusions
- Profound feelings of anxiety
Furthermore, when these alcohol withdrawal symptoms are present, the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders notes that they will cause clinically significant distress in occupational, social, and other important areas of functioning. For this reason, along with the fact that one’s health can be placed in severe jeopardy when one is going through alcohol withdrawal, it is imperative that treatment and rehab for alcoholism is sought and implemented. The Rose of Newport Beach offers such rehab and treatment for alcohol addiction.
