  5. How do you detox from alcohol at home?
Asked: 2019-01-03 18:16:21
I have kids and can't get to rehab so I'm going to taper down the number of beers I drink everyday until I don't drink anymore. Will this work?

The short answer is, you don't. Many people have passed away as a result of trying to detox from home. If I were you, I would reach out to family or friends and let them know that you are having a serious issue with alcohol that you need to get treated. Go into a detox so that you can be medically supervised. It is IMPERATIVE that you be monitored by a medical professional during this process. Don't risk it. I am sure that there is someone you know who would happily watch your kids while you get the help you need and deserve. Call the number on this website and get yourself some help.

Recovery is about more than quitting drinking. Detoxing from alcohol at home is never recommended and can be deadly. More than that, it doesn't remove your addiction. 90 days in a treatment program is the only thing that will help you recover from it mentally.

You might be able to overcome your physical dependency on alcohol if you slowly taper down. But that's best case scenario. I don't know if you've been addicted to alcohol for a long period of time or how many beers you have every day, but addiction doctors recommend that you get a professional detox because so many of the side effects to tapering down can be pretty scary. The body doesn't always react well when it's been operating on substances a long time. Then, even if you taper off the alcohol and everything's ok, you'll still be stuck with a mental addiction, which can be just as powerful. It's likely that you'll go to all the trouble to stop drinking, only to relapse soon after and feel really crappy about yourself, when having an addiction isn't your fault in the first place. Alcoholism is nothing to mess with. Detoxing can be deadly. Like the others mentioned above, a medically-supervised detox is imperative for your health and survival.
