When a heavy alcoholic stops drinking, how long can it take for body to rehydrate and repair itself in general and realize the alcohol is gone?

Impossible to say: because it depends on how much damage has already been done. It is not a matter of "rehydration," since most alcoholics are actually overhydrated.

In addition, the metabolic changes caused by alcohol result in neurotransmitter/receptor imbalance that can take months, even years, to heal. ...Read more

In general, hours...: It is hard to tell how long it takes for alcohol to leave a particular person's body, but in general, it's about 1 hour for each drink. Some people get a higher blood alcohol level (bac) than other people do, despite the same number of drinks, so will take hours longer to return to normal. So, a bac of 0.08 will take 5 hours to go away, dropping 0.016 per hour, and bac of 1.0 will take 6.25 hours. ...Read more

1 drink per hour: Alcohol metabolism/breakdown occurs at a fixed rate regardless of how much you drink. The rate is 1 drink per hour. If you drink 10 drinks in an hour, 1 drink will leave your system after 1 hour. Excessive drinking for this reason can lead to alcohol poisoning and death. Please drink in moderation. If you take medications it is better to not drink at all. If you cannot stop, get help. Good luck! ...Read more
