Alcohol Addiction

Florida Alcohol Addiction Treatment

Alcohol addiction treatment is here to help you your road to recovery. In fact, alcohol is the leading factor of deaths among people between the ages of 18 and 24. Additionally, alcohol addiction can also destroy personal and professional relationships. Moreover, drinking alcohol regularly can have an extremely negative impact on your health. 

The long-term medical consequences of alcohol abuse may include:

  • Brain damage
  • Liver disease
  • Increased risk for high-blood pressure and stroke
  • Sexual problems
  • Weakened immune system

The American Psychiatric Association defines alcohol abuse as “a pattern of drinking that results in harm to one’s health, interpersonal relationships, or ability to work.”

Common signs of alcohol abuse include:

  • Frequent or severe hangovers
  • Neglect of personal responsibilities
  • Accumulation of legal or financial issues related to drinking
  • Inability to stop or reduce drinking
  • Insomnia
  • Sudden outbursts of anger

Florida Alcohol Addiction Treatment Programs

There are many types of alcohol treatment programs available. These include:

  • Medical Detox – This is usually the first step in most alcohol treatment programs. During this stage, the body must rid itself of alcohol and other toxins through a medically-supervised program. Furthermore, it addresses the dangers and symptoms of withdrawal associated with detox.
  • Inpatient Treatment – Inpatient treatment requires living at an alcohol rehab center while you participate in a recovery program.
  • Partial Hospitalization Program – This program is for people who have completed residential care and are ready to transition to the next stage of assistance.
  • Intensive Outpatient Treatment – Also known as IOP, this level of care is for patients who want the flexibility of outpatient care but must continue to undergo treatment during the week.
  • Outpatient Treatment – Also referred to as OP, outpatient programs offer a more independent option for alcohol treatment. Instead of living at an alcohol treatment center, clients live at home. As such, they may continue to work, as alcohol treatment sessions can be scheduled around everyone’s scheduling needs.

Alcohol Addiction Treatment Medications

Some of the medications used in alcohol treatment programs can include meds that help reduce alcohol cravings, reduce withdrawal symptoms, or create negative effects when alcohol is consumed. These medications include:

  • Acamprosate – Reduces alcohol cravings and withdrawal symptoms
  • Naltrexone – Reduces cravings for alcohol
  • Disulfiram – Produces undesirable effects such as headaches, nausea or vomiting when alcohol is consumed
