Alcohol Withdrawal Timeline

is different for each person that uses alcohol in excess. If you have clicked on this page, you may be looking for some type of guidance. We will help you try to decipher all of the rhetoric and begin to formulate a plan to help your loved one to get sober.
For those who have severe alcohol dependency, one hour can seem like a lifetime. That is the first thing to be aware of. Have you ever had a serious flu? Think about how miserable you felt the last time and how badly you just wanted it to end. That is how someone feels who is trying to beat alcoholic dependence, but times 50!

*Important note to remember: Each person’s Alcohol Withdrawal Timeline will be different depending on the severity of his or her alcohol addiction/dependency. Alcohol is a drug. Many people either do not know this or forget when it comes to a loved one.

A typical Alcohol Withdrawal Timeline goes something like this:

First preliminary stage:

  • Initial symptoms will include: nausea, anxiety, sleep problems and shakiness
  • You can expect to see these signs within 5-10 hours

Second preliminary stage (most dangerous):

  • Secondary symptoms are: Symptoms of a condition known as Delirium Tremens or the DT’s is the slang term that is common in Alcoholics Anonymous circles. Seizures, confusion and hallucinations are a LIFE-THREATENING SITUATION and must be medically-supervised in most cases.
  • If the DT’s are going to occur, they will usually happen within 72 hours or within 7-10 days of stopping to ingest alcohol.

This is why we suggest that immediately following a successful intervention, a person goes straight to a medical detox unit. Leaving a person “on their own” to get through this phase of recovery is not recommended by Diversified Intervention Group’s Masters-level interventionists.

Alcoholism is such a common condition in 2012, that virtually all Clinicians come across it in their careers at some point. There are specific conditions that are organ-related which are caused by excessive alcohol consumption after years of abuse and dependence. Serious conditions like Cirrhosis of the liver and pancreatitis are two of the most common that we see in many long-term alcohol users.
