HRI technique is the approach to treat alcohol based on a fundamental method designed to stabilize a patient who presents with a history of alcohol addiction or desire to curb their alcoholic cravings.
We insert an intravenous line and start an infusion of fluids and a combination of vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, and other essential elements and medications. Alcoholic clients can be profoundly malnourished and typically depleted of crucial components of thiamine, folic acid, and other fundamental nutrients. These vital items MUST be thoroughly replaced before any treatment begins to avoid any additional risk of alcoholic-related complications. When started, the effects of alcohol are removed and a combination of anti-craving drugs given before and during the detox procedure is concluded before the patient regains awareness in a precisely orchestrated fashion.
Outpatient detoxification procedure is a safe and effective alternative to an inpatient detoxification. We screen the patient to make sure they are appropriate for this outpatient detoxification. The alcohol detox process begins with completion of apre arrival medical screening questionnaire followed by a thorough medical evaluation by the physician. The evaluation includes a medical interview, physical examination, laboratory panel, urine drug testing, EKG, blood alcohol level detection using a breath analyzer, and other assessments that may be deemed crucial.
Typically, clients can resume their daily routines within the first few days after starting the detox procedure. Completion of the detox is defined as being medically stable and no longer experiencing significant withdrawal symptoms after the essential detox medications are discontinued. Upon completion, clients are returned to the care of their community physician, behavioral specialist, and encouraged to enroll in an on going outpatient treatment program. We strongly suggest some form of aftercare support program e.g. AA.
A dual diagnosis means that someone has a substance abuse issue that is present along with mental health issues. For some individuals, the uncomfortable or distressing emotional and mental symptoms led to using drugs or alcohol. Other clients developed mental health issues, such as anxiety or depression, during the course of their addiction. Co-occurring mental health conditions that are commonly seen with drug and alcohol abuse include:
Unlike our proprietary alcohol detox program, traditional rehab facilities offer their clients an experience that extends itself for weeks while the agonizing discomfort of alcohol withdrawal is felt.
During your stay, we observe and monitor for any harmful alcohol withdrawal syndrome [e.g. seizures and cardiovascular arrhythmia] while continually optimizing your condition.
Alcohol recovery is a process in which both physical and a psychological component need to be addressed. Our treatment program offers our clients continual therapy with FDA-approved medications that deter addiction relapseand/or reduce the craving of alcohol for those who want to curb their alcoholic intake. Each day is a new opportunity to learn and recommit to sobriety, so that you’ll be less likely to relapse in the future.
Simply stated, as long as you stick to the plan by taking our prescribed, non-habit forming medications, your body will resist the urge to drink, and if you continue to take your medicine as directed, you can expect to be alcohol-free for the rest of your life. Let us show you how!

Alcoholism is not an easily definable term, which is why it is now called Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD), instead.
AUD defines a person with habitual and excessive drinking habits, many unsuccessful attempts to stop, and describes their continued drinking despite adverse consequences to health, responsibilities, and personal values.
Men are two to four times more likely than women to become alcoholics. The disease is divided into two categories: alcohol abuse and alcohol dependence.
Alcohol abuse, people have tendency with binge drinking (consuming six or more alcoholic drinks in one sitting), as well as engaging in risk-taking behaviors such as drinking, driving, and unprotected sex.
Alcohol dependence is even more serious. People who are dependent on alcohol lack the ability to voluntarily cut dowbor stop drinking. They develop a physical tolerance, so that they require increasingly large amounts to become intoxicated. They also develop withdrawal symptoms, including rapid heartbeat, anxiety, and even seizures, when they try cutting down or stopping altogether.
More severe symptoms Include:
Hallucinations can be visual, tactile or auditory. If present, these typically occur between 12 to 24 hours after your last drink.
Severely altered mental functioning, extreme confusion, agitation characterize DTs, hallucinations and delusions, and usually occur within 24-72 hours after your last drink.
High-risk signs (at presentation)
1 MILD: Anxiety, tremor, insomnia, headache, palpitations, gastrointestinal disturbances.
2 MODERATE: mild symptoms plus diaphoresis, hypertension, tachypnea, tachycardia, confusion, and mild hyperthermia
3 SEVERE(delirium tremens): - moderate symptoms plus disorientation, impaired attention, hallucinations, and seizures
Things can deteriorate rather quickly than you might realize, which exposes you to a lot of very avoidable risk. Here are for good reasons to get a physician involved right from the start:
Severe Alcohol Withdrawal Can Lead To Life Threatening Delirium Tremens:
DT’s are only one of many life-threatening scenarios to worry about. Other life threatening complications can include:
Problematically, alcohol withdrawal symptoms can change quickly – going from mild to severe within a period of hours, not days.
Since symptoms can change quickly, and since you could go from moderate discomfort to life-threatening distress within a few hours, it’s important that anyone at risk of serious complications start out under medical observation, receiving medications that can stop serious symptoms before they get started.
