Treatment of Alcoholics in Taunton
It is reported through studies that people who have social and family support, motivation and overall good health are more likely to recover and remain abstinent from alcohol. Around 50% to 60% of addicts show signs of full recovery. For those people with no motivation and absence of any kind of moral support, the evaluation period is longer as they generally tend to relapse.
The treatment process includes three stages which are detoxification, rehabilitation, and sober maintenance. Detoxification should be applied under medical care if alcohol addiction is in the late stages as it can have life threatening implications. It is important to know that detoxification cannot prevent cravings, so it is difficult to maintain recovery.
The medicines included in the treatment process for alcohol abuse include Benzodiazepine, this is an anti anxiety drug used for withdrawal symptoms like poor sleep and anxiety. Another medicine is Disulfiram which can be used when the detoxification phase has passed. This medication is most suitable for highly motivated individuals as it interferes with alcohol metabolism.
Here at Taunton Alcohol Rehab, our goal is not to make you sober but to keep you sober. We will help you understand that relationships will no longer be affected if you cut back on your drinking. Plus, you will have more time for your friends and loved ones and you can do all the activities that you really care about. These include doing well on your job and your family.
Some alcoholics are afraid to go into alcohol addiction treatment because they do not want to lose their drinking buddies or perhaps they do not want to face their real problems. In our center, you will be content and relaxed that you will see it is much better to face the reality and stop drinking.
Is Alcoholism inherited?
Research shows that the risk for developing alcoholism does indeed run in families. The genes a person inherits partially explain this pattern, but lifestyle is also a factor. Currently, researchers are working to discover the actual genes that put people at risk for alcoholism. Your friends, the amount of stress in your life, and how readily available alcohol is also are factors that may increase your risk for alcoholism, alcohol dependence or alcohol addiction.
But remember: Risk is not destiny. Just because alcoholism or alcohol dependence tends to run in families doesn't mean that a child of an alcoholic parent will automatically become an alcoholic too. Some people develop alcoholism even though no one in their family has a drinking problem. By the same token, not all children of alcoholic families get into trouble with alcohol. Knowing you are at risk is important, though, because then you can take steps to protect yourself from developing problems with alcohol or alcohol abuse.
We will make sure that you are prepared for life after you complete rehab. We know you can succeed with the valuable knowledge and skills that we will give you. Don't let another minute pass you by, it could mean your life.
