Infographic: Alcohol Detox

This infographic begins by describing in detail the 3 stages of alcohol detox according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration: evaluation, stabilization, and treatment. This is followed up with an extensive list of the possible symptoms of alcohol withdrawal based upon information from the National Institutes of Health. These include: anxiety, depression, mood swings, insomnia, sweating, nausea, tremors, hallucinations, and seizures, among others. The infographic concludes with a surprising fact from the National Institute on Drug Abuse – that alcohol has more long-lasting and severe withdrawal symptoms than other drugs such as heroin and cocaine.
