The fact that you are visiting the Middlegate website tells us that either you, or someone you know, are struggling with some sort of addiction. If that addiction is alcohol, we can offer you help through an alcohol detox program. After completing such a program, you or your loved one will be better equipped to face a future free of addiction. Give us a minute to explain how.

How We Can Help

Among the many services we offer, Middlegate matches alcoholics with alcohol detox clinics. A detox clinic separates the alcoholic from his or her drink in a way that allows their body to rid itself of alcohol and its effects. At that point, some alcoholics are ready to face a future without the need for further alcohol consumption. Others need to follow detox with rehabilitation therapy.

Alcohol Detox

Middlegate Addiction Help works with the best alcohol detox centres available in the country. We can assess the needs of each individual client then put together a selection of services that will best serve that person. No, Middlegate does not believe there is one single program that is right for everyone. We believe in referring programs we know will work for you rather than just putting you into a generic program.

What to Expect from Detox

You should know that detox is designed to separate an alcoholic from his or her alcohol as quickly as possible. That separation means there will be withdrawal symptoms that could last several days. In cases where it is appropriate, an alcohol detox clinic may use maintenance medications to take the edge off or to relieve some of the withdrawal symptoms.

It is not uncommon for clients to reach a peak in their withdrawal symptoms somewhere around the second or third day. After that, withdrawal symptoms begin to gradually subside until, usually by the seventh or eighth day, the client feels relatively normal. Of course, each individual will react differently to detox.

Please Don’t Go Alone

Our cultural acceptance of alcohol has led to the false assumption that alcohol addiction is not that big a deal. That further leads some addicts to try to detox on their own. Middlegate strongly urges you not to do that. There could be some withdrawal symptoms and complications requiring medical care during the detox period.

For example, some alcoholics experience excessive sweating along with nausea and vomiting. The combination of all three could lead to serious dehydration if left untreated. Seeking help from an alcohol detox clinic includes medical care that would ensure the alcoholic is not suffering from dehydration.

Middlegate knows how devastating the effects of alcohol addiction can be to individuals and their families. Far too many have lost their jobs, their homes, and their relationships with loved ones because of alcoholism. Do not be one of them.
