Are there any Risks or Side effects?
As with any procedure, there are always some risks involved. It is possible that clients can experience severe withdrawal symptoms and possibly even a seizure. This can also happen in a hospital setting or in the best of hands. Recognizing these facts, a board-certified physician well versed in the complications of alcohol addiction is always physically present and directing care during the most critical periods of one’s treatment.
Medications are given to ensure that severe withdrawal reactions do not occur and if they do, immediate intervention is available. In this event, once the situation is stabilized, it is still possible our client will still need to be hospitalized if their withdrawal experience was shown to be severe.
