It is important to remember the medication used for detox alone does not make you stop drinking; for this, you need self-determination and an aftercare programme.
The medication helps you to feel better and alleviate your withdrawal symptoms while your body readjusts to not having alcohol. After completing the detox, your cravings for alcohol may continue so you will still need willpower and coping strategies to deal with these urges.

Naltrexone could also be prescribed if suitable and required. While naltrexone is not a cure for alcoholism, this medication has proven to be very effective when prescribed as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.

This is due to having alcohol or drugs in the body will cause intense side effects of the medication, including nausea and vomiting when combined with other substances. To avoid these uncomfortable symptoms, we typically wait until after the detox process is complete before administering this medication.
Although naltrexone is widely used in treating opioid addictions, it has many advantages for helping people detox from alcohol. Detoxing from alcohol is safe and most effective when completed under the care of medical. During medical detox, nurses and doctors are able to keep track of your vital signs and adjust your treatment as necessary.
