The American Medical Association has classified alcoholism as a disease since the 1960s, and American Addiction Centers helps those struggling with this disease in a professional, non-judgmental way. Alcohol rehab is not a place for guilt or shame — it is a place to heal and recover.
If left untreated, excessive alcohol abuse can ultimately destroy the liver, but the health consequences of alcohol are far more widespread; alcoholism has been linked to the early onset of heart disease, gastrointestinal problems and decreased bone density and blood cell production. Simple daily life can also become a struggle, with depressive episodes, severe anxiety and even thoughts of suicide.
Without the aid of alcohol rehab, a drinking problem won’t go away on its own. Instead, it becomes more and more damaging to both the alcoholic, and his or her family.
According to the NIAAA, 5,000 people under age 21 die each year from alcohol-related car crashes, homicides, suicides, alcohol poisoning and other injuries such as falls, burns and drowning. But there is hope.
With the right alcohol rehab program – treatment available with our help – alcoholics can, and have, learned to conquer their disease.
Alcohol rehabilitation provides the best chance at starting a healthier, happier life. The treatment process begins with an alcohol detox period between 5-7 days, during which the body is cleansed of the toxins of wine, liquor or beer. This cleansing process can include unpleasant withdrawal symptoms such as irritability, depression and sweats or chills, but it’s a necessary step in combating the disease.
Once detox is complete, inpatient counseling begins to discover the underlying issues causing addiction. This is sometimes done through group therapy sessions in which individuals can receive emotional support from others also involved in the treatment experience.
