Alcoholism is now also referred to as alcohol use disorder. Alcohol use disorder is a chronic relapsing brain disease characterized by compulsive alcohol use, loss of control over alcohol intake, and a negative emotional state when not drinking alcohol. Because alcohol is a legal drug, and because it is more socially acceptable than other substances many people develop alcohol use disorder. Social norms place a priority on consuming alcohol at and during many social activities as well as monumental life experiences or accomplishments. In general, consuming alcohol is encouraged and that much easier to become addicted to.

Alcohol detox symptoms can also be life-threatening and it is imperative that any person who is experiencing alcohol withdrawals get medical help. Seizures can easily occur when a person is detoxing from alcohol. The U.S. National Library of Medicine confirms how necessary medical supervision is for a person who needs to detox off alcohol:

Some drinkers that consume alcohol in quantities outside healthy limits will develop an acute alcohol withdrawal syndrome when they abruptly stop or substantially reduce their alcohol consumption. Most patients manifest symptoms that may start as early as six to eight hours after an abrupt reduction in alcohol intake. It may include any combination of generalized hyperactivity, anxiety, tremor, sweating, nausea, retching, tachycardia, hypertension, and mild pyrexia. (NLM)
