Alcoholism Rehab Treatment

Alcohol Addiction Treatment

In the United States, alcohol is omnipresent. From parties and bars to social gatherings, men and women everywhere use alcohol as a way to let loose and relax or cope with stress. While most people can stop at one or two drinks, those who are prone to addiction may have trouble moderating their alcohol intake. And since the prevalence of alcohol has normalized harmful drinking patterns, it isn’t always easy to tell when someone is struggling. This can have dire consequences for those affected by alcoholism, as the effects of heavy drinking can add up quickly if they go unchecked.

At Choice House, we’re all too familiar with the havoc that alcohol addiction can wreak. We’ve seen it before — in mothers, fathers, friends and neighbors. From professionals to college students, alcoholism doesn’t discriminate. And since COVID-19, more people than ever are turning to the bottle to cope with the stress of daily life. That’s why we provide structured and supportive rehab programs for alcohol addiction at our sober living center in Boulder, Colorado. Because with the right care, you or your loved one can finally break free from the cycle of alcohol addiction and achieve lasting sobriety.

Recognizing When to Get Help

Drinking is so common that it can be hard to tell when it’s become a problem. Millions of Americans use alcohol each day, and almost a third of drinkers report binge drinking in the past month. This puts them at greater risk of becoming addicted or experiencing health problems such as alcohol poisoning, blackouts and liver damage. Binge drinking is defined as consuming five or more drinks within two hours, and heavy drinking is binging at least five times a month. If your alcohol use is at this level and it's beginning to interfere with daily life, or you’re unable to cut back despite repeated attempts, it could signify that you or a loved one has a drinking problem. Other signs of alcohol abuse include:

  • Being unable to have just one drink or control alcohol consumption
  • Isolating from friends and family to spend more time drinking
  • Using alcohol to deal with stress or escape from daily life
  • Being unable to fulfill normal duties or responsibilities (work, take care of family, etc.)
  • Financial or legal problems as a result of drinking too much
  • Frequent intoxication at work, school, or other inappropriate times
  • Hiding alcohol around the house or at work
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when not drinking

If you see these signs in yourself or someone you care about, don’t hesitate to reach out for help immediately. Alcohol abuse is hard on the body, and the consequences of excessive drinking may include long-term health problems like heart disease, liver damage, stomach ulcers, pancreatitis, memory loss and more. Although many of the effects of long-term alcohol use can be reversed, some damage may be permanent, so seeking professional help is crucial to prevent further harm to the mind and body.
