Alcohol Addiction Treatment
Alcohol Addiction Treatment at Banyan MassachusettsIt’s no secret that alcohol abuse can cause serious long-term physical and mental health problems. Because alcohol is legal for adults ages 21 and older, they believe that it’s safe to drink. However, a few drinks a day, every day can quickly lead to binge drinking, resulting in addiction. Alcoholism can be defined as the inability to control or stop drinking because of a physical dependency. It’s a chronic disease that is characterized by repetitive alcohol consumption despite health or legal issues that stem from drinking. When an individual can’t seem to go about their day or complete their regular tasks without alcohol, then that’s when their alcohol addiction is most apparent.
Signs and Symptoms of AlcoholismAlcoholics may struggle to quit or cut down on their drinking because of the physical dependency they’ve developed. In many cases, those who struggle with alcoholism must begin their day with a drink to function properly. However, despite the problems that this disease may cause, many individuals with a drinking problem don’t realize it right away. Sometimes it takes the support of friends and family members to help the addicted individual realize that they need alcohol addiction treatment.
Some common signs of alcohol abuse include:
- Waking up and having a strong urge to drink alcohol
- Experiencing restlessness, sweatiness, and nausea when you aren’t drinking (these are common alcohol withdrawal symptoms)
- Regular blackouts from drinking alcohol
- Getting in trouble with the law while intoxicated
- Drinking alone numerous times
- When daily responsibilities are getting neglected such as work, school, and family care
- A family member or friend has approached you about your drinking habits
- Relationships are starting to become negatively affected by your drinking
It’s important to understand that alcohol affects your entire body, and long-term alcohol abuse can have serious repercussions. Life-threatening risks are often linked to alcohol abuse. Once a person realizes they need treatment for alcohol addiction, they can take their first step in recovery with an alcohol detox. At our alcohol rehab in Massachusetts, we recommend our patients begin their overall treatment plan with a detoxification to flush out toxins from their system and aid them in physical healing. Alcohol withdrawal symptoms can also be uncomfortable and dangerous without medical supervision. Team members that conduct these detox treatments are trained to manage these symptoms safely.
