Risks of Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse
Alcohol affects the body in many complex ways, resulting in physical illnesses, health problems, and psychological disorders. Liver problems are the best-known consequence of alcohol abuse, including problems such as steatosis (fatty liver), alcoholic hepatitis (liver irritation), fibrosis (formation of excessive tissue in the liver), and cirrhosis (hardening). Since the liver is responsible for removing toxins from the body, a faulty liver can and does lead to death. Many different organs are at risk, such as the pancreas, which produces toxic substances in the presence of alcohol, resulting in pancreatitis. Alcohol is known to contribute to cancer in the mouth, esophagus, throat, liver, and breasts. Even rare incidents of excessive drinking can disable the immune system, and makes users susceptible to diseases such as pneumonia and tuberculosis. Heart damage, stretching of the heart muscle, irregular heartbeat, and stroke are also not unusual health conditions that alcoholics and alcohol abusers endure.
The brain can also be adversely affected because of alcohol use. Even occasional binge drinking has unwanted side effects, such as:
- decreased inhibitions
- motor impairment
- breathing complications
People who continuously drink too much alcohol are usually affected by alcohol use disorders, but the mind can be affected in other ways as well. Our services treat clients that not only suffer from alcohol use disorders, but the other psychological issues that usually accompany it. Misuse of alcohol also increases the risk of:
- vehicle injuries
- violent and unsafe behavior
Customized Treatment Plans
Each person is unique, and no two people have the exact same rehabilitation needs. Our treatment programs can be completed in twenty-eight days, sixty days, or ninety days, depending on the client’s rehabilitation requirements, and all programs are both affordable and effective. Sometimes it’s possible to achieve long term sobriety in a one month program, but evidence shows that the longer treatment lasts the stronger the chances that the addict will maintain their sobriety after leaving. We access every client’s individual situation is examined during the intake period, and the most productive and most advantageous therapy programs are created. These individualized programs are extraordinarily effective and combine affordable outpatient costs with the very best quality care expected from inpatient accommodations.
How We Can Help
Depending on the severity of alcohol use disorder, detoxification may be necessary before treatment can start. Without clinical help, detox is an incredibly dangerous process for profound alcoholics and can be life-threatening. Side effects of alcohol withdrawal range from mild to extremely serious:
- enlarged pupils
Recovery Program Drug offers a safe, controlled environment for patients who need to detox from alcohol, and is overseen by medical personnel. It is incredibly important to seek treatment after detoxification because detox only helps the addict withdraw physically from their substance of abuse. In order to truly experience recovery, rehabilitation, or treatment is really the only option.
