Restored Path Detox is a place where you can recover quickly and safely.
Since alcohol is a sedative that alters your neurotransmitters, heavy drinking can change your brain’s chemistry. When you stop drinking suddenly, your brain can’t regulate itself, and that’s when uncomfortable (and sometimes life-threatening) withdrawal symptoms can begin.
But you don’t have to suffer through withdrawal alone. Medically monitored alcohol detox is essential in planning for a healthier, more satisfying life. At Restored Path Detox Dallas, you will emerge with a firm foundation for ongoing recovery.
We match you with a combination of effective detoxification techniques to provide comfortable, caring, and integrated care. We’ll prescribe targeted medications to alleviate your symptoms of alcohol withdrawal while simultaneously preventing dangerous complications.

- Approximately 13.9% (32.6 million) Americans experience an alcohol use disorder annually.

Alcohol is a legal drug, but it carries a significant risk of addiction. If you regularly abuse alcohol and stop drinking or significantly reduce the amount of your intake, withdrawal symptoms will emerge. The symptoms of alcohol withdrawal occur between one and seven days and generally take between two and four days to peak. There is no exact timeline for what you may experience.
Initially, symptoms might start relatively mild and include:
- Loss of appetite
- Profuse sweating
- Shaky hands
- Extreme restlessness
- Shortened temper
- Severe agitation
- Panic attacks
But alcohol withdrawal symptoms can quickly become severe and dangerous and include:
- Body Tremors – Typically begin within the first several hours after the last drink, peak between 24 and 48 hours, and are usually accompanied by increased blood pressure and elevated heart rate.
- Alcohol Withdrawal Seizures – Can be very unpredictable, severe, and life-threatening, within 12 to 48 hours of the last drink.
- Alcohol Hallucinosis – Generally begins within the first 12 to 24 of the last drink and may include dissociation from reality and visual or auditory hallucinations.
- Delirium Tremens (DTs) – Typically lasts between five and seven days and include breathing and body temperature changes, reduced blood flow to the brain, extreme confusion, disorientation, sleep disturbances, and hallucinations.
- Suicidal Ideation – Severe depression and thoughts of suicide may present.
Toward the end of your first 24-48 hours of detox, symptoms may become increasingly severe. Different withdrawal symptoms may come and go for the remainder of your first week in alcohol detox. You’re most at risk for life-threatening Delirium Tremens (DTs) during this timeframe which could lead to aspiration pneumonia.
Thankfully, by the time you’ve completed your first week of medically monitored detox, many withdrawal symptoms will begin to taper. Our medically monitored program at Restored Path Detox helps prevent serious complications, keeps track of your health, and relieves pain.
