Risks of Non-Medical Detox

While going through detox, some individuals with significant levels of alcohol dependence may experience alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Left unmanaged, heavy alcohol users may experience a range of symptoms from uncomfortable to potentially fatal stopping use.

Because of this, a supervised, medical detox can help individuals avoid unnecessary discomfort or severe withdrawal complications.
