So What Is Alcohol Addiction?

Alcohol addiction is a gradually escalating process of dependence that occurs over varying periods of time. Drinking alcohol to cope with life becomes commonplace for individuals predisposed to alcoholism. It's a chronic, progressive disease that will, in time, destroy the minds and lives of those in its path.

Additionally, Alcohol Addiction is a significant public health concern. Over 17 million Americans abuse alcohol, and it's estimated that some 70 million more have some experience with alcohol abuse or alcohol addiction in their families. Alcoholism isolates individuals from family, friends and communities, while negatively impacting physiological health.

Withdrawal Symptoms

People dependent on alcohol experience significant distress after prolonged use. As it is progressive, alcoholism increases the number and severity of disturbances in a person's life. Alcoholics often experience relationship issues, financial difficulties, professional problems, a decrease in their immune system's ability to function, as well as physical withdrawal symptoms.

Alcohol Withdrawal symptoms are the primary indicator that dependence is present. Alcohol withdrawal is intense, painful and in some cases deadly. When you or your loved one are planning to cease alcohol use after developing dependence, inpatient medical detox is the common clinical suggestion.

Long-term alcohol misuse can have more serious, and lasting, effects like brain damage, liver damage or failure, nerve damage, gastrointestinal bleeding, and others. The best option for halting these effects from further damaging your mind and body is to seek professional PA alcohol rehab services.

Treatment for Alcohol Addiction

Exploring treatment options for PA alcohol rehab is a major step in the right direction. Treatment for alcohol dependence almost always begins with alcohol detox. In a medical detox program, qualified staff monitor the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal. At this stage, psychological and physical issues can be treated and stabilized.

After detox, it is safest for an individual to remain in one of many licensed Pennsylvania drug rehab centers to decrease the chances of relapse during the initial sobriety period. Alcoholics have to learn to manage complex psychological symptoms - like anxiety and depression - and it’s best not to do this alone, as it can take months for the body and brain to adjust to life without alcohol.
