The two main categories for alcoholism treatment are inpatient and outpatient. Within each of these categories are many treatment programs to choose from. In many cases, the alcoholic will begin with detoxification, which is the cleansing of the body of alcohol. During this time, the body must readjust to not having the substance in the system. The person is likely to suffer from withdrawal. Common symptoms include:
During this time, the person is more likely to revert back to previous tendencies if he or she is trying to detox at home. When conducted at an alcoholism treatment facility, the person can receive assistance through the process. This may include medications for the symptoms. Once the detoxing process is complete, the next step in treatment is therapy. This can occur in a variety of ways, including individual counseling and group therapy. During this time, the addict learns how to deal with situations that trigger the desire for the substance. The person also learns more about the disease and its effects on the body.
Part of many treatment programs is therapy to deal with other issues. People who become alcoholics often have mental health disorders such as depression or anxiety. These conditions must also be treated to prevent relapse.
Both inpatient and outpatient programs may be effective, but they won’t work for everyone. For someone to succeed in an outpatient program, he or she will need a strong support system. It is also more effective if the person only has a mild addiction. For those who have a long history of addiction or who have tried treatment before, inpatient is the better choice. It gives them the structured support that they need. Ask questions to find out the details about the facility and to learn the procedures and rules of the facility. No one knows your loved one as well as you do, and you can help make the right choice. Once the decision to begin treatment has been made, Alcohol and Drug Treatment Centers Summit can provide the specialized program necessary for long-term success.
If you have a loved one who is struggling with an addiction, but who is in denial or unwilling to get treatment for the illness, an intervention may help. An intervention is an organized meeting set up by friends and/or family, during which a few will speak directly to the loved one and talk about how the addiction is affecting them. An interventionist, addiction specialist, psychologist, or other mental health professional can help you organize and execute an intervention. The goal of an intervention is to get your loved one to agree to alcoholism treatment.
Treatment for alcoholism is an important step for anyone who suffers from addiction. The right program can help the person overcome the problem and other issues that are part of his or her life. He or she can go on to live a happy, productive life even though alcoholism cannot be fully cured. Yet, armed with the right tools and resources to manage the disease, the alcoholic can overcome the addiction.
