What is A Home Detox?
Home detox is when you remain at home while detoxing from alcohol. Withdrawal symptoms can vary from person to person, depending on the severity of the addiction. However, most people will experience anxiety, nausea, and intense cravings for alcohol. In cases of moderate withdrawal, the symptoms can be more intense. You may experience nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea can also be present. A heavy drinker for a long time could have a severe withdrawal, with symptoms such as seizures and hallucinations. Due to the potential mental and physical complications, doing a home detox is not recommended in severe cases. Doing a home detox yourself may be successful for a mild withdrawal, but it does increase the potential for relapse or health complications. You should always consult your doctor before attempting to detox from alcohol at home.
