Great question and congrats on your choice to stop drinking. There is no one size fits all answer. The best approach is to meet with yoru primary care physician and discuss honestly what your alcohol intake has been and go from there.
Age, overall physical health and the presence of any other medical conditions are determining factors.
You may not need a detox center - good chance you won't - but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be careful. Just err on the side of caution. Think of it this way - your body is going to be recuperating for a long time - the first week is the worst and it gets better from there.
