Alcohol Withdrawal Can Be Life Threatening

You might believe that because alcohol use and abuse are so common, that alcohol addiction is something that’s easy to overcome and be tempted to try the “cold turkey” method. As the first, crucial step towards alcohol addiction treatment, detox varies from person to person and so does the severity of symptoms you can experience. Without proper medical supervision and care, some of these symptoms can even result in death.
