Alcoholism and Addiction Treatment
Alcoholism, also known as alcohol addiction or alcohol use disorder (AUD), is a complex interconnected physical and psychological illness that requires comprehensive clinical treatment. Once your or your loved one’s drinking has escalated to the point of addiction, there are serious and significant changes in the brain’s chemistry that continue to drive the behavior even if you know rationally that it’s causing you or a loved one harm.
Alcohol addiction treatment must be tailored to each individual’s clinical history, lifestyle, and experiences. Rehabilitation can be conducted in either an inpatient (residential), outpatient, hospital-based, or even virtual behavioral therapy. Without proper treatment, alcoholism is likely to worsen and damage more and more areas of your life.
Do I Need Addiction Treatment for Alcoholism?
It can be hard to distinguish problematic drinking from everyday social alcohol consumption, but there are several key indicators that can signal a problem, including but not limited to:
- Inability to stop drinking even when you say you’re going to stop
- Negative impact to your academic, professional, and personal life
- Legal issues, such as assault, DUI, or anything else
- Scheduling your life around your ability to drink
- Lying to loved ones or colleagues about your drinking
- Physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms
If you or your loved one are experiencing any of this lifestyle impact related to your drinking, it’s time to seek help.
What Happens in Alcohol Addiction Treatment
Addiction treatment for alcoholism should include comprehensive treatment for the medical and behavioral aspects of the disease. This means medically supervised detox for withdrawal symptoms as well as comprehensive behavioral rehab to address the root causes and triggers of addictive behavior. Most alcohol addiction treatment programs are covered by private insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid. Get the help you need now before your drinking escalates any further.
