Effective Alcohol Treatment Programs

Alcohol addiction can be brought on by a variety of different factors. Some people use alcohol in social situations, to have fun, relax, be part of a group or to escape from pain, whether it be physical or psychological. People who use alcohol don’t use it for the harm it could cause, but for the benefits that they believe it will deliver to their lives.

Because Orchid specializes in treating women, we offer a wide range of treatments and therapies that come together to uniquely address the challenges faced by woman addicts.

Effective Alcohol Treatment Programs Treat the Causes of Alcohol Addiction

There are many factors that can influence a person to initially try alcohol. It could be aspects of their personality, peer pressure or psychological stress that caused the initial experimentation with drinking. Once a person becomes addicted to the effects of alcohol, these initial reasons for trying it because less important as new reasons to continue develop.

Effective Alcohol Treatment Programs Treat the Psychological and Social Effects of Alcoholism

Treatment for alcoholism treats the behaviors that occur while a person is under the influence of alcohol as well as the behaviors that cause them to return to alcohol over and over again. Alcoholism is caused by a chemical interaction inside the brain which produces physical dependence. Once addiction has set in, the social and psychological factors often grow exponentially and therapeutic treatment is even more important.

Performance in school, social interactions and job performance can suffer from alcohol addiction due to behavior under the influence or the physical and mental toll the drink takes even after the intoxicating effects have worn off. Legal issues can also be created, such as arrests for public intoxication or for driving under the influence of alcohol. Additionally, when people have alcohol abuse issues, they may continue to drink alcohol even while they know full well that continuing to drink will produce negative side effects in their lives and the lives of others. If alcohol abuse is accompanied by alcohol tolerance, withdrawal symptoms or compulsive drinking behavior, a person is most likely suffering from alcohol addiction rather than just alcohol abuse.

Effective Alcohol Treatment Programs Treat the Physical Addiction to Alcohol

If a person drinks on a regular basis, they can become tolerant to the negative effects of alcohol, and can drink more alcohol without suffering from these effects. Once they develop a tolerance, they can live out their lives normally even while intoxicated, and many people will not notice that they have a problem until severe damage is caused to their bodies, or they experience withdrawal symptoms for some reason.

Some of these symptoms can include things like:

  • Sweating
  • Rapid pulse
  • Insomnia
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Seizures
  • Illusions
