- – The severity and longevity of your addiction
- – Any co-occurring mental disorders like: ADHD, depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, PTSD, etc.

First, Alcohol Detox
Your first phase of treatment will be to go through an alcohol detox procedure to slowly and safely wean you off of alcohol. Anyone who has a severe alcohol addiction should never try to stop drinking on their own. Life-threatening withdrawal symptoms may occur that need to be addressed by a healthcare professional. The safest way to detox from alcohol is with medical professionals attending to you 24/7.
During the detox procedure, you will be monitored by our medical team. They will make sure that you are kept stable and safe by measuring your response to the procedure and altering the progression of it, if necessary. Our team will also treat any withdrawal symptoms that you experience during and after the process, and try to keep you as comfortable as possible as your body works its way through detoxing. Consider opioid rehab in conjunction with alcohol rehab if you are struggling with both.
Getting to The Root of Alcohol Addiction
Alcohol is the most abused substance in the U.S. with over half of the adult population consuming alcohol on a regular basis. It is estimated that about 16 million adult Americans have an alcohol use disorder. The effects of alcohol on the body make up one of the primary contributing factors to disease and death in the U.S.
Approximately 1 in 3 liver transplants performed in 2009 resulted because of alcohol-related disease. Driving under the influence of alcohol results in about 100,000 deaths annually in the U.S. Alcohol abuse causes serious health problems, in addition to the negative effects it has on families and society.
Individuals who have acquired a dependence on alcohol physically need it to function normally. Without the presence of alcohol, the body will begin to experience severe, even life-threatening, withdrawal symptoms. Individuals with alcohol dependence should never try to stop drinking on their own, but need the help of medical professionals who can safely wean them off of alcohol.
There are many signs and adverse health effects of alcohol addiction that include:
- – Slurred speech, impaired judgment, trouble concentrating, memory loss
- – Insomnia, a weakened immune system, blackouts
- – Ulcers, pancreatitis, severe dehydration
- – Nausea, vomiting, headache, trouble breathing
- – Cancer of the mouth, throat, breast, and esophagus
- – Liver disease, brain damage, heart problems
- – Violent behavior, self-harm, accidents while under the influence
- – Alcohol poisoning, seizures, coma, death
Overcoming Addiction with Therapy
You can meet the challenges of alcohol addiction with the right types of therapies. Addiction has physical and psychological ramifications that must be addressed to overcome addiction. Physical challenges can be treated with medications, and mental and behavioral challenges can be successfully treated with therapy.
Individual counseling helps to identify deep-seated issues that affect an individual’s thought and behavior processes. Counselling also helps individuals with co-occurring mental disorders, and other problems that can have a direct effect on addictive behavior.
In group therapy, an individual can socialize and receive mutual support from a group of his peers. A variety of issues and addiction education are discussed, along with personal stories and tips on how to remain sober.
Family therapy is designed to heal the family from the ravages of addiction. Family members are taught how to help their loved one heal and remain sober, and how to work as a united team for the betterment of all.
Depending on your unique situation, a variety of therapy types may be built into your rehab treatment program.
