How Alcohol Affects the Body?
Alcohol affects almost every cell in the body. It slow down the chemicals and pathways that your brain cells use to send responses. It enters into the bloodstream, then it is carried out to the other parts of the body. Alcohol initially makes people feel relaxed and happy, but the more a person drinks, the more confused and drowsy they may become. You also can’t think straight, which you may not recall later, because you’ll struggle to store things in long-term memory.The body tries to resist the effects of alcohol by overcompensating, but if a person continues to abuse alcohol, the body becomes tolerant to the effects. This means it is necessary for more alcohol to be consumed in order to achieve the desired effects. Continued abuse of alcohol leads to dependence and then addiction. Those with a physical dependence on alcohol will be required to complete a programme of alcohol detox before they can begin any rehabilitation treatment.

What is Alcohol Detox?
The alcohol detox stage is the first step in treating alcoholism. During this time, alcohol is completely flushed from your body. Alcohol affects almost every cell in the body, it is very complicated to withdraw from it. Rebirth Foundation generally recommend that those affected by alcoholism complete an alcohol detox programme before entering rehabilitation. It is necessary for all traces of alcohol to be removed from the body so that the person is completely clean before attempting rehab. At Rebirth Foundation, we understand your concerns. We believe that anyone can overcome alcohol addiction with the right help and support, and it all starts with alcohol detox. We would always recommend that patients detox from alcohol in a supervised facility due to the risk of serious withdrawal symptoms associated with alcohol detox.
Withdrawal SymptomsIf you drink alcohol heavily for weeks, months, or years, you may have both mental and physical problems when you stop or seriously cut back on how much you drink. This is called alcohol withdrawal. Withdrawal symptoms are common when detoxing from alcohol, and can range from mild to severe.
Mild symptoms usually show up as early as 6 hours after you put down your glass.
- Shaky hands
More serious problems range from hallucinations about 12 to 24 hours after that last drink.
We know that the above symptoms are unpleasant and may make you feel unwell, but our
Deaddiction Centre in Chennai will do everything we can to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during detox. If you are detoxing in a medically-supervised facility, you may be given medication to ease the symptoms.
