Alcohol withdrawal syndrome can lead to a life threatening event that has been known to affect people that have been drinking heavily for weeks, months, or years and then stop their drinking habits or greatly reduce their alcohol consumption.
When a person stops or reduces their alcohol intake after a long period of drinking daily, the symptoms of withdrawal can start as early as two hours after the last drink. The symptoms of withdrawal can rapidly progress and range in severity from getting the shakes or anxiety to seizures and delirium tremmons (DT’s). The DT’s consist of rapid heart rate, confusion, and fever. It has been estimated that the death rate from the DT’s is between 1% – 5%.
If you have experienced any of these symptoms of withdrawal, it is important to seek medical help before you decide to stop drinking alcohol. Severe alcohol withdrawal symptoms are a medical emergency.
If you or a friend are experiencing any of these symptoms, call 911 immediately or take them to an emergency room.

What is the cost of alcohol rehab centers ?
The cost of alcohol rehabilitation can depend on many variables including detox considerations, inpatient treatment centers, and outpatient programs. The more amenities that a center has to offer can greatly increase the cost associated with receiving treatment at their center.
Insurance can help divert the out of pocket expense and coverage varies, depending on the relationship the center has with your insurance company.
Private alcohol treatment centers can range in price from $4,000 a month up to $80,000 a month for a luxury or executive type treatment center. Detox for alcohol is usually a separate cost due to the medical complications that can arise during an alcohol detoxification.
Should I travel for alcohol treatment?

Is there anyone that is antagonistic to your recovery
Is there a need for your stay to be completely confidential
Are you a flight risk or not really wanting help
Was there an intervention involved in getting the individual help
Family not supportive
Do you feel that being at home could be a trigger for you not to complete the program.
A specialized program is preferred and not available in your area
