Persons who must drink alcohol to function and cope with life are not just alcoholics, they are physically dependent on a substance. What this means is that for them, like other substance abuse and addictions, their bodies react physically when they do not keep alcohol in their system. Persons who are addicted to alcohol require medication and medical supervision for them to safely detox off alcohol.

Without medical supervision, the likelihood of a relapse for alcoholics is very high. The alcohol detox in Hempstead provides alcoholism treatment that begins with a medically supervised detox. Alcohol withdrawal symptoms most frequently start within 6 hours after the last drink. If a person does not seek medical attention they must consume alcohol to lessen the severity of the first phase of alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
