  5. When is alcohol detox necessary?
Asked: 2018-08-15 02:41:18
Do I have to go into detox for excessive drinking? I haven’t stopped drinking in about a year. Even when I wake up I get shaky. I don’t want anyone to know and will not go into detox if I don’t have too.

Yes. You need to be medically supervised to detox from alcohol to avoid complications. I’ve worked in a detox for years now and have seen some scary stuff. Talk with a doctor before you stop completely.

It is a good idea to get into detox as soon as you decide to stop drinking because the withdrawals can be fatal. I think it is better people find out you’ve been drinking and are getting help over rushing you to the hospital for withdrawal complications.
