Alcohol Detox Centers In Oshawa, Ontario
One of the common symptoms of withdrawal that an alcoholic will experience when they are admitted into one of Oshawa’s detoxification programs is sweating. The individual usually starts to sweat when anywhere from 6-48 hours after entering the program. Once the person starts to sweat, they normally continue to until they have purged their body of the alcohol and are ready to be transferred to a residential program. Detox and Rehab in Oshawa are often needed to get rid of alcohol addiction.
Most of the time, when a person sweats it is because they are in a very hot environment, or because they are physically exerting themselves. When the person is sweating during the detoxification process, the sweat is caused by stress. The amount of sweating that the alcohol addict is doing is one of the things that the staff at the Oshawa alcohol detox program is going to be monitoring.
The first reason the staff is going to be paying such careful attention to the amount of sweating the person is doing is because they want to make sure that the addict is replacing the fluids. If the fluid is not replaced, the person could become dehydrated. The best way for the addict to replace the fluid that they have sweated is with water and/or herbal tea. However, since vomiting is a common withdrawal symptom, it is not always possible for the alcohol addict to keep the fluid down. In this case, the staff will have to attach the addict to an IV. If the person is sweating extremely heavily, the detoxification staff will have no choice but to see that the addict is admitted into a hospital for more extensive treatment. The excessively heavy sweating is usually a sign that they are having extreme withdrawal, which can be dangerous.
