Alcohol Treatment Centers
Alcoholism occurs when individuals’ consumption of alcohol is out of control and becomes the focal point in their life, causing a negative impact on their personal, social and occupational life. Alcohol is an extremely addictive and mind altering substance. Due to its active ingredient, ethanol, an individual will develop excessive consumption patterns that lead to the development of physical and psychological addiction to the alcohol. As mentioned before, it causes negative effects and creates major health issues.
Alcohol addiction begins when a person develops a tolerance for, and dependence on, it. If the body does not receive alcohol in a timely manner or in a big enough quantity, it will begin to display withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawing can cause intense discomfort, something that users try to avoid; usually by consuming more alcohol, which increases their risk of overdose and death. Withdrawal symptoms can be treated through the use of alcohol addiction rehabilitation at treatment centers.
Signs of Frequent Alcohol Consumption Include:
- Hiding alcohol intake
- Constant aggressive arguments
- Constant smell of alcohol on the breath or skin
- Bloodshot eyes
- Frequent overconsumption of alcohol
- Lack of motivation
- Lack of personal hygiene
- Having no ability to control alcohol consumptions
- Constant alcohol cravings
- Displaying withdrawal symptoms when they don’t consume alcohol
- Always having alcohol on hand
Sprout Health Arizona Alcohol Treatment
The first step towards any rehabilitation and recovery is acknowledging the problem and seeking help. While this is an extremely hard step, it is very courageous and can help save your life. The next step is to contact a treatment facility that provides extensive inpatient and outpatient treatments as well as therapeutic modalities and a closely monitored detoxification process.
When contacting Sprout Health Arizona, you will undergo a pre-admission process with one of our expertly trained and friendly pre-admission counselors. During this process, we will gather all information necessary to determine the correct treatment plan according to the severity of your addiction.
Once admitted, you will then undergo a series of mental and physical assessments to help diagnose any underlying disorders as well as what type of detoxification program you will need. Depending on the severity of your addiction, detoxification may or may not happen at the same time as your rehabilitation treatment. During the assessments we will learn which treatment programs fit your individual needs and if we need to administer medications throughout your withdrawal process.
Every addiction treatment, whether it be for drug or alcohol addiction and dependency, begins with detoxification. Because the user has become accustomed to the physical and psychological rewards of alcohol, they will experience intense withdrawal symptoms during the detoxification period. Another important step in the detoxification process is nutritional support. Alcohol is an appetite suppressor and nullifies the body’s ability to absorb nutrients. Chronic alcohol abusers often have severe nutritional deficiencies, including Vitamin-B, which increases hydration and aids in removing alcohol from the body. Most vitamins and minerals are administered orally; however, in some severe cases, where standard methods are ineffective, they are administered intravenously. Either way, nutrient intake is essential for the safety of the patient and to help ease the detoxification process.
Throughout treatment, our patients are closely monitored in order to adjust their treatment programs accordingly. At Sprout Health Arizona, our treatment programs are highly individualized to cater to each patient’s unique needs. We teach the tools necessary to be able to continue sobriety outside of our programs. Almost one-third of alcohol abusers who successfully complete an alcohol detox program, never experience any alcohol-related issues after their first year of sobriety. For the other two-thirds, we recommend aftercare and support groups.
Sprout Health Arizona understands that the rehabilitation and recovery process is not easy, which is why we highly recommend alcohol addiction treatment followed by aftercare. We assure you that we will be with you every step of the way during and after treatment. We are here to guide and support you through this difficult process and offer many treatments customized to your individual and unique needs.
