Stop Normalizing Your Alcohol Abuse

Perhaps it started off with day-drinking; perhaps you began having more and more to drink after work because you felt you “earned” it; perhaps you started using alcohol as an escape to cope with trauma; or maybe you just started when you were a teenager and haven’t been able to stop since. Whatever the origins of your excessive drinking, and no matter where it’s taken you, it’s time to get up and it’s time to get help. Recovery Unplugged helps patients exactly like you or your loved one every day as they endeavor to wrestle control of their lives back from problem drinking.

Whether drinking has only recently started to affect your life, or you’ve been on the slow and steady decline for years, the time to get help is now. We offer medical detox and music-based behavioral rehab to help you regain everything alcohol has taken away from you.

You’re Not Alone and You’re Not Immune

Alcohol kills nearly 90,000 Americans each year from both direct and indirect causes, and negatively impacts the lives of millions more each day. Despite clear evidence that they are out of control, millions of alcoholics let denial, pride and fear stop them from getting the help they need. Don’t become another statistic. Excessive drinking causes significant long-term physical and psychological damage. Alcohol severely depresses the central nervous system and can damage major organs, including the liver and the heart. In addition to the immediate physical dangers, problem-drinking can also lead users to questionable and irresponsible decision-making that endangers their lives and the lives of others.

Signs of Alcohol Addiction

The signs and indicators of alcohol abuse and addiction eventually become impossible to ignore. While each person’s signs will vary according to their alcohol use history and lifestyle, some of the more common include:

• Constant Preoccupation with Drinking
• Increased Risk-taking Behavior in the Pursuit of Alcohol
• DUI, Incarceration or Other Legal Troubles Due to Alcohol
• Decline in Professional or Academic Performance
• Difference in Social and Behavioral Patterns
• Irritation and Rationalization When Confronted about Drinking

Alcohol abuse and addiction is prevalent among users of all ages, from adolescents to seniors. The fact that alcohol is legally regulated has caused many to believe that it’s a less harmful drug than other illicit substances. This perception causes the lines between acceptable drinking and alcohol abuse to get blurred and loved ones of those at risk for alcoholism don’t speak up as often as they should. End the cycle now. If you notice the above behavioral signs in yourself or someone you care about, it’s time to address your alcohol consumption.

Treating Alcohol Abuse and Addiction

Treatment for alcohol abuse and addiction incorporates detoxification and withdrawal management along with rehab and behavior modification. Because alcohol withdrawal can be very dangerous, medically supervised detox is usually recommended in all cases, but each user’s program should be tailored according to their care needs and alcohol abuse history. Treatment will invariably include some combination of group therapy, individualized counseling, withdrawal management, behavior modification, supplemental therapies and aftercare.

Treatment should also focus on the root causes of alcohol addiction. An effective alcohol treatment program should give patients the opportunity to confront the issues that led to their alcohol abuse in a safe, healthy and supportive environment. Patients should also have the opportunity to work with therapists to develop techniques that allow them to deal with cravings in their day-to-day lives.
