Understanding Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse

Alcohol Rehab Alcoholism or alcohol dependence is a chronic condition requiring sustained intervention and treatment. Those who are dependent on alcohol experience the following:
  • Craving for alcohol
  • Loss of control over their drinking
  • Withdrawal symptoms when they are not drinking; and
  • Increased tolerance to alcohol so that they have to drink more to achieve the same effect
Alcohol dependence is largely considered a progressive condition, characterized by a strong need to drink despite undeniable problems associated with continued use. Like substance abuse, dependence on alcohol has been shown to be the main cause of serous problems like legal issues, lifestyle issues like problems relating to loved ones, and chronic health problems like cirrhosis of the liver. Families and friends are often adversely affected by the addiction of an affected family member, and if left untreated, alcoholism can ultimately lead to early mortality.

Alcohol Rehab - How We Treat Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse

In addition to treating the actual addiction in terms of the habit, the routine, the ritual or the automatic response, we will also work with you and teach you how to identify and deal with the issues beneath the surface. At A Center for Addiction Recovery, we:
  • Help you understand what is driving you to use alcohol
  • Work with you to resolve these underlying issues
  • Build you up and empower you with a sense that not only are your issues manageable, but that alcohol is not a necessary or even helpful solution
  • Give you the tools to live a happy and fulfilling life without alcohol and its devastating effects
  • Alcoholism Treatment - A Holistic Approach
Extended use of alcohol and alcoholism can be physically damaging and profoundly affect the way you view the world. Early alcohol addiction treatment must be medically supervised, as there are grave dangers associated with abrupt withdrawals from drinking.

Once withdrawals are stabilized, personal training, body work and complementary therapies help to strengthen the body while intensive psychotherapy and other reflective therapies help to deepen understanding of the underlying issues behind the urge to drink. As clarity returns, an enthusiastic engagement with a new life is fostered by utilizing fun activities and learning new skills.
