An alcohol detox center like Journey Hillside works really well with Cigna insurance because that insurance typically allows us to provide the full combination of care, from detox and beyond.

How Does Alcohol Detox Work?
Detox, or withdrawal, happens naturally when you stop ingesting alcohol. While the body is ridding itself of harmful toxins, the brain is also trying to regain the chemical balance that was disrupted by alcohol abuse. During this rebalancing transition, detox patients may experience a variety of withdrawal symptoms.
Cigna alcohol rehab centers provide nutritional, medical, and mental health care to ease detox symptoms and keep clients safe and comfortable as their brains and bodies restabilize.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)
How Long Does Alcohol Detox Take?
Each person’s experience with detox is unique. In most cases, the physical symptoms of alcohol detox peak within the first 72 hours and steadily decline in 7 to 14 days. Psychological symptoms like cravings, anxiety, and depression may continue for several months, especially if these symptoms are not treated.
What Are the Risks of Alcohol Detox?
There are life-threatening risks of alcohol detox to be aware of. Delirium tremens (DTs) is a rare but urgent medical condition that can result in death if not treated. Alcohol poisoning, caused by severe cravings early in detox, can be fatal or cause permanent health damage. Admittance into a Cigna detox reduces the risk of experiencing either of these conditions.
Can I Detox for Alcohol at Home?
While it is technically possible to detox at home, it is not medically recommended. Because the physical effects of alcohol detox can be deadly, your medical team will likely refer you to one of our Cigna alcohol rehab centers. In addition to being a health risk, going through alcohol detox can be physically and psychologically painful.
Receiving treatment at Journey Hillside not only protects your health but also helps you feel better faster so you can begin participating in the treatments that will support your long-term sobriety.
What Medications Are Used During Alcohol Detox?
Each client’s medication needs are unique. Some of the most commonly used medications during alcohol detox are anticonvulsants, disulfiram (Antabuse), naltrexone, and acamprosate. Medications for anxiety, depression, and other co-occurring conditions may also be prescribed.
What Happens When You Detox from Alcohol?
Many people wonder,“Is alcohol a stimulant?” and worry they will become sluggish and tired if they stop drinking. When a person with alcohol use disorder goes through detox, they will likely feel worse before they start to feel better. In addition to the physical symptoms of detox, clients may also experience psychological symptoms like depression, anxiety, and confusion.
After the initial physical symptoms subside, it is time to begin participating in therapy and learning the skills needed to maintain recovery. Medical detox helps people feel better faster and paves the way for a smooth transition between detox and other treatments.
