Risks of Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse
Alcohol plays a complicated role in many physical illnesses, health problems, and psychological disorders. Even one incident of excessive drinking can weaken the immune system causing users to be at risk of diseases like tetanus and pneumonia. Heart conditions, such as stretching of the heart and abnormal heartbeat, and stroke are not uncommon medical problems of alcoholics and alcohol abusers. Perhaps the best known result of drug and alcohol abuse is liver problems, such as steatosis (fatty liver), alcoholic hepatitis (liver irritation), fibrosis (formation of excessive tissue within the liver), and cirrhosis (hardening). A non-functioning liver often results in a slow and painful death, because the liver is where toxic substances are removed from the body. Other organs are also in jeopardy, like the pancreas, which makes pollutants when in the presence of alcohol, leading to pancreatitis. Alcohol has also been connected to cancer in the mouth, esophagus, throat, liver, and breasts.
Drinking alcohol, even occasionally consuming an excessive amounts (binging), can adversely affect the mind with side effects such as:
- lowered inhibitions
- motor impairment
- breathing problems
People who chronically drink an excessive amount of alcohol generally suffer from alcohol use disorders, that affect mind and body. Alcohol rehabilitation programs treats people who not only suffer from alcohol use disorders, but other psychological disorders that often accompany it. Misuse of alcohol will also increase the danger of:
- vehicle accidents
- violent and hazardous habits
Customized Rehabilitation Plans
No two people have the same treatment needs. With our services, treatment programs may be completed in one, two, or three months, depending on the patient’s treatment needs. All of the options are both affordable and effective. While some addicts may be able to succeed in achieving sobriety in a 28-day program, the longer the rehab program is, the higher the chance of achieving long term sobriety. We make the effort to evaluate every patient’s unique circumstances to be able to determine the most productive and most beneficial therapy programs for them. These customized treatment plans are not only extremely effective, but blend affordable outpatient prices with the highest quality of care expected from inpatient facilities.
How Our Team Helps
Depending on the gravity of the alcohol use disorder, a detoxification procedure may be required before rehabilitation can begin. Especially for chronic alcoholics, detoxification without clinical assistance can be hazardous, or even lethal. Consequences of alcohol withdrawal can vary from mild to exceptionally dangerous, like:
- trouble sleeping
- pupils of different sizes
- black outs
Our facility provides a safe, monitored environment for detox from alcohol. The process is fully supervised by qualified clinical staff. Detox can only be used to help the addict withdraw from their substance of abuse, and shouldn’t be mistaken for rehabilitation. Treatment, or rehabilitation, is the one real way to experience lasting recovery.
