Alcohol Detox and withdrawal symptoms will depend on the severity of the chemical dependency. Detox from alcohol should always be monitored by a medical professional due to the increased risk for seizures. If you are looking to stop using alcohol or are a family member who is trying to help someone detox, do not stop cold turkey without consulting a medical professional first. Alcohol detox usually takes a week to 10 days to clear from the system. The most common withdrawal symptoms include shakes, sweats, increased anxiety and delirium tremens (DTs). The most dangerous symptoms are DTs which are characterized by confusion and rapid heartbeat, and have shown a 1-5% death rate.
