ALCOHOL ADDICTION TREATMENT

Alcohol addiction can be of the most difficult addictions to recognize. First, alcohol is a legal substance, and second, more than half of Americans drink at least monthly and most have tried alcohol at some point. Generally, when it comes to alcohol, addiction treatment is needed when one struggles with withdrawal symptoms, and just keeps drinking to avoid withdrawal symptoms.

If you or a loved one is struggling with addictions or alcoholism, Peaks Recovery Centers can help. We are a long-term recovery center dedicated to helping people rediscover the joy of living through gender-specific treatment. Call today to find out more.

SIGNS OF ALCOHOL ABUSE

INPATIENT RESIDENTIAL REHAB

What really defines an addiction to alcohol is a lack of control. Alcoholics often drink constantly for days or even weeks on end. It is a mental obsession and a physical compulsion that involves both physically craving alcohol and constantly thinking about the next drink.

Some signs that you or your loved one may have an addiction that requires treatment include:

  • Memory loss about events while drinking
  • Drinking more than intended
  • Inability to enjoy social occasions without alcohol
  • Continued drinking despite guilt and shame
  • Hiding and secrecy
  • Worrying and upsetting friends and loved ones
  • Drinking despite family, financial, or health problems
  • Irritability or mood swings
  • Drinking alone
  • Loss of interest in hobbies

    HOW TO HELP AN ALCOHOLIC

    We know if can be hard to watch a loved one experience alcohol addiction disorder. There are some things you can remember to do when trying to help them. Remember, you cannot force them to want to get help. The first step in the right direction is when an individual acknowledges they need help, and want to seek treatment.

    When a loved one is experiencing alcohol addiction, try to remember some of these tips:

    • Keep the communication lines open and honest
    • Try not to pass judgement; instead listen to their thoughts, beliefs and experiences with an open mind
    • Be supportive
    • Offer healthy and alternative resources
    • Establish strong boundaries by not enabling them to drink, or drinking around them
    • Have patience
    • Spend quality time with your loved one
    • Educate yourself on alcoholism and its topics as much as you can

    ALCOHOL ADDICTION TREATMENT

    Essentially, Alcohol Use Disorder treatment provides alcoholics with the tools they need to combat their disease. It’s up to them, once the defenses have been built, to massage their willpower and keep to the given path. Yet, when it comes to treatment metrics, it’s important to count success in increments. Simply deciding on a treatment plan is paramount for the alcoholic, as they have admitted there’s a problem. Even if treatment keeps an alcoholic away from substance abuse for a month, that’s a success. Treatment programs works—but it’s not a cure, it’s a lifestyle that must become law to the AUD sufferer.

    Medical Detox

    Medical detox is the first step into a full recovery. It is needed in order to rid the body of all the alcohol or drugs that have been used or abused. For most cases, detoxification from any drug needs to occur in a safe and medically overseen facility.

    Peaks Recovery is medically staffed by a primary care physician, a psychiatrist, and around the clock nursing. The medical team acumen provides the safest medical detox in the state of Colorado. Unlike most drug and alcohol detox programs, our medical team is not contracted and is onsite throughout the day to ensure your safety and comfort.

    Inpatient Residential Rehab

    Inpatient Residential Treatment is the highest level of care. It encompasses around the clock care and monitoring. All clients reside on the program campus, where they will attend all their individual therapy, medication management, group therapy, holistic therapies, and more. The methodology behind inpatient rehab is to create a safe environment for the patient to curb their addiction.

    Paired with others suffering from the same ailment, they work with therapists, healthcare professionals, and counselors to dive deep into self-exploration. Ultimately, this alcoholism treatment method provides a haven for the patient and works to gift them the tools they will need once returning to their ‘outside lives.’

    Peaks Recovery is licensed to provide both inpatient and residential drug and alcohol treatment services to adults of all ages. For the duration of programming patients are housed in beautiful gender separate housing providing a nurturing environment that promotes personal well being and recovery.

    Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

    A partial hospitalization program is the next step down after completing inpatient rehab. If necessary, a stabilized patient will transition into a sober living environment while still attending their needed classes, therapy sessions, or scheduled doctor appointments.

    Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

    IOP is one of the more flexible levels of care, and is usually only recommended to those who have completed an inpatient program. Intensive outpatient programming involves anywhere from nine to fifteen hours per week of clinical contact hours ranging from group counseling, to individual sessions, and on-going psychiatric evaluations. To achieve these hours you are encouraged to participate in group therapy for three hours a day over the course of three days or five days per week depending on the clinical recommendation.

    Unlike inpatient and residential drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs, you can continue to live at home, continue with your job or school, and enjoy your additional free time with family and friends.

    Support Groups

    While support groups are usually integrated heavily in the aftercare process of sobriety, they can also be the primary and only form of treatment. Plenty of AUD sufferers have found their Zen, purpose, and strength within groups such as AA (Alcoholics Anonymous)—being that they are paired with those in the same plight, and they find motivation via their sponsor’s encouragement, fostering their willpower alongside others.

    These groups are as rewarding as they are encouraging. From addicts currently in the throes of alcoholism to seasoned veterans that have been sober for years, people from all walks of life sit down to support one another. The 12-Step program, created by AA, establishes a great structure that is coupled with a reward system for those trying to achieve sobriety.

    From tools to mitigate the symptoms of AUD, a platform in which sufferers can speak on their struggles with those who understand firsthand, to an accountability system, AA is often enough to lead an alcoholic towards a better, healthier, sober life. When it comes to rehab, normally a patient will be paired with a support group and visiting this group is integrated into their aftercare plan.

    Other

    Dual Diagnosis: Dual Diagnosis, also referred to as co-occuring disorders, is when an individual experiences a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder concurrently. If a mental disorder is present in conjunction with substance abuse, they must address each issue separately in order to establish an appropriate course of treatment in a dual diagnosis rehab.
