Outpatient medical detoxification from alcohol is not safe for everyone. There is always a risk of seizure and/or development of life threatening withdrawal symptoms with unstable vital signs. If you are interested in outpatient detoxification from alcohol, Dr. Wassef will assess your safety for this type of treatment. You must have a friend or family member to stay with you at least during the first 24 hours of your detox.
There are now a different number of medications that are available to help people reduce or stop their drinking.
We use anti-craving medications that decrease the rewarding feeling from drinking to help you maintain your sobriety. In addition, In case of lapse or relapse while taking these medications, you will not experience any side effects. Relapse could be used as a learning experience and not as a punishment like old medications.
