Exploring Your Local Alcohol Recovery Center

Man Standing Outside of Alcohol Recovery Center
Have you or a loved one fallen victim to an alcohol addiction? Has your addiction started to affect your personal and professional life? If so, you could benefit from the professional services of an alcohol recovery center.

Alcoholism is a dangerous problem for many Americans. In fact, alcohol is responsible for more adolescent deaths than all other illicit drugs combined. It also contributes to the top three causes of death among individuals between the ages of 15 and 24: accidents, homicides, and suicides.

Alcohol is not only a problem for young people. In 2014, as many as 16.3 million American adults 18 years and older had an Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD). In the same year, 31% of all automobile driving fatalities were alcohol-related.  

Do You Need Help for Alcohol Abuse?

If you suspect that you or someone you love has an addiction to alcohol, look for the following 4 symptoms and signs:

  • Craving. Do you feel a strong urge, need, or compulsion to drink?
  • Loss of Control. Are you unable to limit the amount of alcohol you consume, regardless of the occasion?
  • Physical Dependence. Do you begin to experience withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, sweats, shakiness, and anxiety, when you stop drinking alcohol after a binge?
  • Tolerance. Do you have to drink larger quantities of alcohol in order to achieve a buzz?

Most heavy drinkers believe and say that they could stop drinking at any time – the reality is much different.

There is Help Available at Your Local Alcohol Recovery Center

Alcoholism is a serious problem with devastating consequences if left untreated. Fortunately, professional help from a reputable and compassionate alcohol recovery center can help you to beat your addiction for good, so you can live a healthy, happy, and sober life.

What To Expect

Alcohol withdrawal can begin as early as two hours after the last drink, and symptoms can range in severity from mild anxiety and feelings of shakiness to severe complications like seizures, hallucinations, and even death. Because of this, patients undergo medically-managed detox under the close monitoring of a specialty physician before beginning their individualized dual diagnosis treatment plan. This well-rounded treatment includes one-on-one sessions with a therapist, family and group therapy, and individualized health help from our nutritionist.

Recovery Connection also offers aftercare planning that’s especially helpful in preparing patients for life post-treatment. This continued support helps prevent future relapses and includes:
