Alcohol Abuse Treatment

Often people who need alcohol abuse treatment don’t realize the severity of the problem. You may ask yourself if you need help every so often after a bad experience with drinking results in more negative consequences.
If you’re not sure, below is a series of questions to ask yourself:

•    Do you drink by yourself?
•    Do you drink to cope with problems or escape them?
•    Do you lose time from work, school or other commitments from drinking?
•    Is drinking causing problems in your relationships?
•    Is drinking causing financial problems?
•    Do you sometimes wonder if you drink too much?
•    Do you drink before social events to feel more relaxed?
•    Has anyone ever mentioned your drinking to you?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, you might want to consider looking into an alcohol abuse treatment program. SouthCoast Recovery has intake coordinators available 24/7 to answer any questions that you may have about your drinking. If you’re not sure that you have a problem or not quite ready to enter an alcohol abuse treatment program, we can help you decide whether it’s the right course of action for you.

What to Expect From an Alcohol Abuse Treatment Program

While there are many different alcohol abuse treatment programs to choose from, you have to decide what’s best for you. At SouthCoast Recovery, our intake coordinators can help you determine what level of care you need. You may find that you’ve just begun to slide into problem drinking or you may finally admit that you can’t stop drinking and your life is unmanageable because of it. Either way, we have a range of alcohol treatment programs that can help you get your life back.

Depending on how heavily you’ve been drinking and the withdrawal symptoms you experience when you quit, you may need alcohol detox and 90 days of inpatient or you may find a transitional care/outpatient program offers enough support. An alcohol abuse treatment program will not only sever your physical dependency on alcohol but work to sever your psychological dependence through counseling and various therapies as well. This takes considerably more time and effort but sobriety won’t last without it.
