What should you expect during alcohol detox in Thailand?

After entering a treatment facility, it is common for people to experience intense cravings for the first few hours. Some people also experience dramatic alterations in blood pressure and mood, along with symptoms of physical sickness like shakes, a mild fever or sweating. Symptoms increase in severity as the detox advances, and can even become life threatening so it is essential to have a skilled medical professional oversee and monitor the detox processes.

The symptoms tend to decline as normal body function starts to occur again within 48 hours, though those with more severe cases may experience worsening symptoms for a few more days. Every person that undergoes a detox programme will have varying reactions that are unique to their exact situation. Other less common symptoms can include hallucinations, insomnia, impaired mood, and anxiety.

What is detox and why is it needed?

Alcohol detox describes a medical intervention that helps clients experience a safe withdrawal process once they stop consuming alcohol. It is not a requirement for all clients to receive detox prior to alcohol addiction treatment, though this is determined through an initial assessment and depends on a few factors, such as the persons existing medical issues, history of substance abuse and age. Physical dependence is common with heavy or long-term alcohol use and can require detox in order to ease off of the substance in a safe and effective way

How long does it take to detoxify your body from alcohol?

Always remember that detoxification is the first step in a long journey towards recovery and sobriety. Detox involves evaluation or testing the patient to see which substances are in his bloodstream, stabilisation as his body naturally removes the toxins, and guiding the patient towards recovery in light of withdrawal symptoms. It’s a process you should undergo in order to allow your body to cleanse itself.

  • Length of Detoxification: Speaking of processes, the whole detoxification process takes 7-10 days. In other words, about a week or more. The symptoms then peak within 24-48 hours. The medical professionals will assist you throughout the process.
  • Length of Rehabilitation: As for the rehabilitation programme facilitating your detox, they take at least a minimum of 30 to 45 days. Other individuals might require 90-day stays at an inpatient treatment centre.

At least 7 out of those 30 or so days of rehab are dedicated to keeping your body from taking any drinks at all. How long your rehab centre stay is depends on the following factors:

  • Your history of alcohol addiction
  • The severity of your alcohol addiction
  • Your emotional, mental, social, and physical needs
  • The presence of other medical, mental, or behavioural conditions (co-occurring diagnosis or dual diagnosis might be in order)

This is custom heading element

An important part of alcohol detox is what is known as stabilisation, which defines all psychological and medical interactions that take place in order to help the client reach psychological and physical balance. Short-term medication may be prescribed to help regular withdrawal symptoms. This medication mimics the effects of alcohol and is slowly tapered off throughout the detox programme.

What are symptoms of alcohol withdrawal?

Alcohol withdrawal symptoms can include cravings, sweating and trembling, as well as delirium tremens (DTs) or seizures in cases that are more severe. DTs symptoms involve delirium and marked tremors, and can even result in death. The severity of alcohol withdrawal symptoms can increase at a rapid rate, moving from shakes to a seizure in a few hours which is why recovering alcohol addicts should attend rehabs that have an on-site detox facility.

What happens after alcohol detox programme?

Once detoxification is complete, our clients can then move onto our addiction treatment programme. The Dawn uses our own Twin Pillars approach as our, which combines:

  • 12 Steps principles using a secular language in a supportive community
  • Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) to promote awareness and prevent relapse
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to help clients change the way they think and behave

We believe that it is important to figure out the root causes behind ones addiction, which can help us find out key triggers, introduce positive thinking and point out the need for lifestyle adjustments. Each of our clients receives a personalised programme that is based on our initial assessment, but aspects that all of our clients can participate in include:

  • Group therapy
  • One-on-one counselling
  • Exercise therapy
  • Holistic and alternative therapies
  • Weekly excursions


Our client’s life long recovery and success is what we care most at The Dawn. We also realise that relapse and setbacks are a reality for many beginning their recovery journey, which is why we offer a Relapse Assurance Guarantee for clients who have completed treatment for drug and alcohol addiction. If any client relapses for any reason after completion of our programme, we welcome them back for 30 days, at no additional cost.
