Alcohol Detox in Albuquerque New Mexico

Do you want to quit drinking?

Did you know that alcohol withdrawal is dangerous and can include:

  • Seizures
  • Tremors
  • Hallucinations and Delusions
  • Cardiac Arrest

If you are ready to quit drinking, our medically-assisted alcohol detox will help ensure you are safe and comfortable.

What is medically assisted alcohol detox?

With the consistent and regular use of alcohol, the body becomes dependent. Early withdrawals include headaches, sweating, anxiety, irritability, sensitivity to light and sound, nausea and can progress to tremors, seizures, and hallucinations.

The first step to recovery is a treatment plan tailored to your medical needs to reduce the risk of severe withdrawals. Medical providers will assess the risk of withdrawals based on past history, use, and current health.  Medications will be recommended to ensure comfort and safety through the detox process. Patients are observed daily on an outpatient basis to assess for current needs.
