Alcohol addiction treatment is needed to help people overcome their alcohol addictions. You can either opt for a long term or short term alcohol treatment. Short-term alcohol rehabilitation is best used in case the person has been diagnosed with alcohol dependency as a result of an accident. Long-term alcohol rehab is for chronic alcoholism, which may have caused or aggravated physical or mental damage to the patient.

Addiction Causes

All addictions can stem from different factors. Several of the most common causes are:
  • Biological Factors
  • Environmental Factors
  • Social Factors
  • Psychological Factors
  • Post-traumatical Factors
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Anger or frustration

Detoxification therapy is the best treatment for all types of alcohol and drug addiction. It is also called detox. It involves removing the toxins that alcohol and drugs contain from the body and eventually cures the patient of any physical or mental damage caused by the alcohol abuse.

Effects From Diseases and Addictions

All diseases have negative effects, which are hard to recovery. The most popular are:
  • High blood pressure
  • Cancer
  • Memory problems
  • Mental health problems
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Social problems
  • Decrease in productivity
  • Family problems
  • Serious dependences
  • Problems at work

Alcohol detox usually lasts for two to four weeks. During this time, patients are kept in a hospital and are not allowed to drink any alcoholic beverages. The person will then be monitored closely. If they take in too much alcohol or any type of drug, they will be required to have regular meetings with the doctors. This is done to get a better understanding of how the patient uses alcohol.

During the liquor detox treatment, the patient will be placed in an isolation room. In here, they will be watched and counseled by the doctors. They are able to stay here for up to twelve hours before being moved to a recovery room where they can be left alone.

The doctors and nurses there will talk to the patient about the consequences of drinking alcohol and how the person will feel after drinking alcohol. Also, they will teach the patient how to avoid activities that will cause them to drink excessively. They will help the patient in identifying those times when they would rather eat than consume alcoholic beverages.

Once the patient has detoxified their alcohol, they are then released and given a rehabilitation bracelet. This bracelet will have their phone number and name of the physician who will monitor them. They will be monitored for some time after they have been detoxified by the physician.

Another option of alcohol addiction treatment is an outpatient treatment. In these cases, the patient stays at home, but they still attend the alcohol rehabilitation center. The physicians will set up appointments to come and visit the patient at home.

In some cases, if the patient cannot attend counseling sessions due to various factors, he or she can be given a prescription medication. In the case of acute alcoholism, the patient is given one of these medications and their physician will set up weekly or monthly follow up visits. After that, the patient is given another prescription medication which keeps the patient on the prescribed schedule. All the treatments that are necessary for the alcoholic patient are explained by the physician and the patient is encouraged to adhere to the doctors’ orders.
