Where many can have a couple drinks and put the bottle down, others have to keep consuming it till the very last drop.

Alcohol is one of the most common addictions in America being legal and readily available at nearly every grocery store or gas station. What started out as occasional drinking with friends or coworkers can easily become a crutch for destressing or escaping the problems that plague you the most. Many find themselves indulging in alcohol because it is a social lubricant or liquid courage. Because excessive drinking gets worse as time goes on, Alcohol abuse treatment is often needed.

Overindulging in alcohol tends to take a hard toll on the body and once the body becomes dependent, it can be dangerous and difficult to just stop. The good news is, there is treatment available for you or a loved one that can help put an end to alcohol abuse. Our treatment of alcohol abuse starts with a medically supervised detox to bring you relief from the dangerous withdrawals that are experienced during alcohol detox.

After successfully completed your stabilization treatment, you will move on to our intensive treatment programs, where you will learn how to cope with the stress and anxiety of life without the use of alcohol.

Health Risks Associated with Alcohol Abuse

It is no secret that alcoholism can cause major health problems. The statistics themselves speak volumes about the dangers of alcoholism and the toll it takes on your body. It is estimated that 88,000 people die each year in alcohol-related deaths. Some health risks associated with heavy drinking are cirrhosis of the liver, anemia, cancer, cardiovascular disease, dementia, depression, seizures, gout, high blood pressure, nerve damage, and pancreatitis.

Excessive alcohol intake can also suppress your immune system leaving your body vulnerable to infectious disease. The statistics on drunk driving related deaths are also alarming. It is said that 28 people in the United States die in alcohol-related traffic accidents every day. Many of our patients have told us that as time went on, driving under the influence became a normal occurrence for them. They always hoped and prayed that they wouldn’t get caught or hurt someone on their way to the store to purchase more alcohol. In a year, it is estimated that 13,000 lives are ended due to alcohol users driving under the influence.

The cost of these damages adds up to a cost of around 52 billion dollars a year. It is easy to see why treatment can be necessary for alcohol abuse. These are very serious risks that you cannot afford to take. If you know that you are unable to control your drinking, don’t let yourself lose your health or become an alcohol death statistic.

The Dangers of Going Cold Turkey When Detoxing From Alcohol Abuse

Alcohol withdrawal is not something to be taken lightly. In fact, detoxing from alcohol without proper medical attention and supervision has proven fatal for some. Attempting to detox from alcohol on your own is something that you should never consider. Alcohol in large quantities is toxic to the body and causes changes in your metabolism and central nervous system. Your body begins to rely heavily on alcohol and abruptly stopping drinking can be fatal.

It causes both psychological and physical symptoms of withdrawal. The symptoms that can be experienced during alcohol withdrawal are tremors, sweating, elevated pulse, and blood pressure, nausea, insomnia, and anxiety. If you have become severely physically dependent on alcohol and you suddenly attempt to stop drinking, you run the risk of seizures and organ failure. These withdrawal symptoms can begin 1-3 days after your last drink and can last for 2-10 days. Alcohol withdrawal can be fatal, depending on the length of time and severity of the dependence.

Delirium tremens is the name for severe alcohol withdrawal and it can cause heart problems and fatal injuries during seizures. Alcohol detox is best done under the supervision of a medical professional. Medical detox can include medications to help your system in balance and prevent further complications. Detox is the first step and treatment should always follow once detox is complete. If you need more information on detox, please call us today.
