is known by Alcoholics Anonymous as the time period when an alcoholic has “hit bottom” and is ready to clean his or her system to be free from alcohol. This usually occurs when a person has become so tired of the daily cycle that they ask for help. Or the person’s immune system gets so saturated with alcohol the person ends up in the local Emergency Room. Sometimes, the family members and friends will be the first ones to notice that a problem with alcohol and its excessive consumption may exist.
The reason for this is because abrupt cessation of alcohol intake sends the body into shock in almost all cases. This process is just the start of the detox. One class of drugs called Benzodiazepines or “Benzos” have very similar effects on a person as does alcohol.
Doctors many times prescribe certain forms of Benzodiazepines for the alcohol detox process, but this is always in a controlled hospital or residential setting. These drugs make this dangerous alcohol detox much less severe and will help the patient to sleep.
