Alcohol Rehab in Pompano Beach

Alcoholism Treatment Program in Pompano Beach

In the United States, roughly 14.8 million people over 12 had alcohol use disorder in 2018, which is about 1 in 19 people. While alcohol is a legal substance, there is a risk of alcohol abuse and dependence. Alcohol use disorder (AUD) can cause severe problems in your life such as in your relationships, family, work, and mental and physical health. However, AUD can be overcome through our alcohol rehab in Pompano Beach, FL.

So, how do you know if your drinking has become a problem, or what is known as alcohol use disorder? According to the DSM-V, which helps to diagnose a range of mental disorders, if over the last 12 months there are three or more of the following criteria, then there is AUD present and alcohol rehab may be required. 

The criteria include using alcohol in higher quantities or for longer than intended, drinking and activities related to alcohol use took up a lot of time, and tolerance has developed. Further criteria include trying to stop but being unable to, experiencing withdrawal symptoms, drinking continues despite mental and physical health problems, and you reduced or stopped taking part in other activities.

If three or more of the criteria are met, then it’s likely that there is a problem with drinking. At our alcohol rehab in Pompano Beach, we are able to help you with your drinking problem. Legacy Healing Center is a place of compassionate support and the accredited treatment services that can help you to achieve long-term sobriety through evidence-based approaches to treatment.

First, Alcohol Detox

The first element of your treatment will likely be a medical detox program since alcohol is physically addictive and produces sometimes-severe withdrawal symptoms. Dependency to alcohol can cause withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety and nervousness, a loss of appetite, vomiting and nausea, insomnia, shakiness in the arms and legs, and agitation. Some of the more severe symptoms include a rapidly beating heart, tremors, seizures, confusion, and hallucinations. 

In order to help you through these symptoms, our medical detox program at Legacy Healing Center provides you with various medications to help you cope. Medications such as benzodiazepines can help to reduce anxiety and seizures among other symptoms. We also provide you with OTC medication as needed to help you deal with other uncomfortable symptoms such as headaches. 

While medical detox is an ideal program to break a physical addiction and overcome withdrawal symptoms safely, it isn’t enough to treat and addiction and prevent relapse. Medical detox is the first step in your recovery.

Getting to The Root of Alcohol Addiction

After detox, you will need to participate in behavioral therapy in order to determine and remedy, or at least manage, the causes of your addiction. There are three main causes of addiction. Your development is a factor, which includes using alcohol in your youth during crucial developmental stages. 

The second main factor of alcohol addiction is your environment. Your environment includes trauma, peer pressure, how you handle stress, and whether there was a lack of parental guidance. The final important factor of alcohol addiction is your biological factors, which are essential things that you are born with. Factors such as potential co-occurring mental disorders are considered to be biological factors, and the biological factors account for around half of your addiction risk. 

Each of these factors is explored since they only pose a potential risk and any one of the factors could have led you to your substance abuse. These will be explored in order to be treated through behavioral therapy and dual diagnosis.

Overcoming Addiction with Therapy

Behavioral therapy is where significant changes take place in recovery. Through either a group or individual setting, you will participate in treatments such as family therapy, process therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and motivation enhancement therapy.

Through these evidence-based therapies, you will learn how to better cope with stress and triggers, build the motivation you’ll need to attain long-term sobriety and alter the behaviors that lead to alcohol abuse. 

Another aspect of our alcohol rehab in Pompano Beach is holistic treatments. Our holistic approach to treatment is designed to help you in other areas of your life that may not appear to be directly related to your addiction. These areas include co-occurring mental disorders, your career, your family dynamics, and your mental and physical wellbeing. Through this whole-patient approach to recovery, we help you to build a healthy foundation for your future, alcohol-free life.
