Many Americans struggle with whether or not to seek help for alcohol addiction. While alcohol is legal to those 21 and older, it is still a dangerous drug. In fact, alcohol addiction is the leading cause of mouth, esophagus, pharynx, liver and breast cancer. Due to the consumption of alcohol and binge drinking being normalized, many people never seek help. Binge drinking is an episode of drinking four or more drinks at once, while alcohol addiction may also be daily drinking, the two are both dangerous and require supervised medical detox.
Effects of Alcohol Addiction
Alcohol Addiction Treatment Options
Alcohol withdrawal is dangerous and should not be attempted without professional treatment due to the significant risk of dehydration, vomiting, seizures and delusions that can happen when you stop drinking. A qualified and experienced alcohol detox center is vital for safety. An experienced detox staff can help alleviate much of the physical and mental pain of withdrawal by keeping you comfortable, medically stable, and in a structured environment. Treatment does not end after seven to ten days of detox; this is where it begins. Once you have gone through the alcohol detox process, your mind will become clearer, and next phase of treatment can begin. Most treatment lasts anywhere from thirty to ninety days, beginning with intensive daily therapy plans and community integration.
