Alcohol Rehab in Florida

There are a variety of stages of alcoholism, ranging from frequent over-indulgence to physical addiction. Those suffering from alcohol abuse or alcohol addiction can ruin their own lives and careers as well as their family relationships and finances. Alcohol remains the number one drug problem in the United States despite the increased use of illegal drugs. More than 13 percent of American adults will suffer from some degree of alcoholism in their life time.

An alcohol rehab can help you or your loved one break your physical and emotional dependence upon alcohol and get back on track. Orchid Recovery Center is an alcohol rehab in Florida dedicated to helping women addicted to alcohol and drugs find a better way of life through abstinence.

What is Alcoholism?

Medically, alcoholism can be divided into two categories: alcohol abuse and alcohol addiction. Alcohol abuse can be evidenced in a pattern of broken commitments at work, school and at home; drinking at inappropriate times or in a way that puts others in danger (for example, before driving or while providing care for small children); in violence and anger; and legal problems due to actions while intoxicated.

Alcohol dependence manifests itself in the need for more and more alcohol to achieve a state of euphoria or drunkenness. When a base level of alcohol in the blood stream drops below a certain level, the individual will feel physical symptoms including:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Shakes and tremors
  • Insomnia
  • Irritation and anxiety
  • Sweating and rapid pulse

Someone addicted to alcohol may resort to drinking early in the morning and throughout the day to avoid exhibiting these symptoms. They may lose control of their drinking and continue to imbibe longer than originally intended and larger amounts than planned. They may find that they are unable to stop on their own, that the compulsion to drink becomes a priority above all else even though they know that they are ruining their relationships and chances for a successful career. Their whole lives revolve around drinking, spending all their time either drunk or hung over.

Like all drugs, those who abuse alcohol do so to the detriment of everything else in their lives. Alcoholism or alcohol addiction can be treated, however, at an alcohol rehab like Orchid Recovery Center in Palm Beach, Florida.

When is it Time to Go to Alcohol Rehab?

It’s time to go to an alcohol rehab when you realize that you have a problem and need immediate help to solve it. Alcoholism will not go away on its own. Chances of quitting alone are minimal and even 12-step meetings are not usually enough to help an alcoholic break their physical dependence and create a life of abstinence. At Orchid Recovery Center, we are prepared to help you through your detoxification and beyond, learning the habits and relationship building tools you will need once you leave our facility. Call us today for more information and see if Orchid Recovery Center is the right alcohol rehab for you.
