Medically Supervised Detox:
The withdrawal symptoms, which can be fatal from any of these 3 types of substances, are in need of 24/7 observation with continual management of changes in the body functions that put the addict/alcoholic at risk.
Alcohol is a legal drug opiates and benzodiazepine is also legal drugs; the problem is that many addicts/alcoholics do not intend to become addicted or to abuse these legal drugs. Once the body is depending on them to function the addiction to them is stronger than the ability to stop using them.
