For alcohol detox, a comprehensive evaluation of the person's alcohol abuse and mental health history is provided prior to admission. Based on this information, the medical director of the alcohol rehab or alcohol detox program can create a customized detox protocol to specifically manage any related Withdrawal symptoms the patient may experience. The physician will also use this information to determine if any prescription medication may be warranted to assist with Recovery as well as to manage any psychiatric symptoms a person may experience. As Addiction is the issue at hand, most alcohol detox or rehab programs will try to avoid use of psychiatric medications while the detox portion of treatment is completed because so many alcohol Withdrawal symptoms mimic those of psychiatric disorders.

Should a psychiatric disorder be present, Dual Diagnosis allows both the alcohol Addiction and psychiatric disorder to be treated at the same time.
