What Does It Mean To Abuse Alcohol?
What constitutes alcohol abuse? Some people may not be sure whether they are abusing alcohol or not. A common phrase in the recovery world is “People who aren’t addicted don’t sit around and wonder if they have a drinking problem.” What we know is that both binge drinking on occasion or even several drinks daily can cause harm to the body. Addiction is a progressive disease. What first feels like a functioning lifestyle may slowly introduce serious negative biological and social consequences.
Why Might I Need Counseling?
Attending counseling will make a significant difference in your recovery and success in the future. Some of the benefits you’ll gain by participating in in a treatment program include:
- Evidence-based therapy — What that means is the treatment program continually monitors the most successful outcomes of therapies and their effect on specific addicted populations.
- Participation in group therapy — In addiction to individual therapy, group therapy can provide an important connection of shared experiences. Connection is an important component of a life in recovery and often missing in active addiction.
- Inpatient treatment — In the early stages of lasting recovery, time must be spent addressing the biological aspects of detox, which can be fatal if not medically monitored. Just as important is understanding why a person is turning to self-soothing behaviors so they can be resolved.
- Expert staff —We believe that a comprehensive approach performed by medical and clinical credentialed staff is critical to long term success. Each person is different and requires experienced staff to create an appropriate individualized program.
