Alcoholism includes the compulsive and uncontrolled consumption of alcohol, usually to the detriment of the person’s mental, physical, spiritual, and relational health. Alcohol abuse has the potential to damage almost every organ in the body and is considered to be a chronic, progressive, and fatal illness. Gradually, alcohol abuse changes the chemical balance in one’s brain, affecting the experience of pleasure, judgment, and the ability to control one’s behavior. As a result, an alcoholic craves more and more alcohol to restore positive feelings or remove negative ones. This increased tolerance to alcohol and the neurological changes that occur make it increasingly difficult to stop drinking.
Chronic alcoholics and heavy drinkers will experience some level of withdrawal symptoms when they suddenly stop drinking. These symptoms can range from mild shakes and discomfort to life-threatening delirium tremens — which can include confusion, hallucinations, convulsions, autonomic instability and death. Due to the medical complications that can be caused by withdrawal, alcohol detoxification should be carefully controlled. Once detoxification is complete, our alcohol addiction treatment services can help you begin the path to recovery.
The statistics out there regarding alcoholism can be frightening. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism reported that nearly 88,000 people (approximately 62,000 men and 26,000 women) die from alcohol related causes annually. This makes it the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States. We are here to let you know that there is a solution! No matter how hopeless you feel, you can recover from your alcohol addiction. You do not need to hit rock bottom to start your life in recovery. Remember, you hit rock bottom when you stop digging.
