  • Mild or moderate alcohol withdrawal syndrome
  • Mild or moderate alcohol intoxication
Prolonged (several days) alcohol substance abuse can lead to development of alcohol withdrawal syndrome, where symptoms include hand tremor, anxiety, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and insomnia; in some cases in may lead to hallucinations. Alcohol withdrawal syndrome can be dangerous and provoke development of further psychotic (hallucinations), cardiogenic (hypertensive crisis, myocardial infarctions) and neurological complication. Therefore, sudden abstinence from alcohol can be very difficult and dangerous for people with tendency for alcohol addiction and underlying health problems. Mild alcohol withdrawal syndrome can often be deal with without medical assistance. In cases of moderate to severe withdrawal syndrome medical help, either in the community or in the hospital, is highly desirable – especially if patient has underlying health conditions.
Always remember that not every patient can benefit from home detoxification. If the doctor deems that treatment at home can be dangerous and ineffective, patient will be strongly advised to make use of hospital services as an inpatient.
