If his drinking has increased heavily recently, then the withdrawal could take weeks. The first 3 – 7 days will be the hardest and the chance of delirium tremens (known as the DT’s) could be fatal, so it’s important to keep an eye on them and have them seen by a medical professional to assess their condition.

Heavy drinkers usually go into withdrawal around 8 hours after their last drink, and the symptoms of detoxing can last a few weeks. Perhaps having some medical assistance or counseling can help you both to deal with this difficult time.
