Outpatient Alcohol Detox
After an individual has decided that they suffer from addicted to alcohol, they must make the decision to seek either inpatient or outpatient alcohol detox. Each type of detox is different but for many patients who are not heavily addicted to alcohol, outpatient alcohol detox is the ideal choice. This type of alcohol detox provides limited monitoring and support to patients as needed but allows them to return home to their families, loved ones, work and school obligations at the end of their treatment session.

Many outpatient alcohol detox programs offer support groups such as AA that will keep the patient on the right track in between private or group meeting sessions with a counselor. In the event that withdrawal symptoms do occur during the alcohol detoxification process, the patient will typically have access to a doctor or nurse who can provide them with verbal assistance to help them come up with remedies for the pain or discomforts associated with the alcohol detoxification withdrawal symptoms.
Outpatient alcohol detox is not for those who are so heavily addicted to alcohol that they run the risk of having severe alcohol withdrawal symptoms when they stop drinking. Some of these severe symptoms include hallucinations, seizures and blackouts all of which can pose a significant risk to both the patient and to the loved ones or other individuals around them. For patients who have very severe withdrawal symptoms during alcohol detox, it is recommended that they visit an inpatient alcohol detox program to first overcome the majority of dangerous symptoms before continuing their treatment in either an inpatient or outpatient facility.
