Alcohol is the most commonly abused substance in the United States, and alcohol use disorder (which is also commonly referred to as alcohol dependence or alcoholism) is the cause of considerable damage to individuals, families, and communities throughout the nation. Though alcohol is a legal substance that is safely consumed by many people, the drug poses significant risks when abused. When a person has become dependent upon alcohol, both the risks and the potential damage are increased exponentially. An individual who has developed alcohol use disorder will lose the ability to control his or her alcohol intake. He or she will consume alcohol more frequently and in greater quantities than is safe, and will continue to do so even after experiencing negative repercussions as a result of his or her alcohol abuse.
The 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) highlighted that in 2015, there were 138.3 million Americans aged 12 or older who currently consumed alcohol. Out of this, around 66.7 million indulged in binge alcohol use in the past 30 days and around 17.3 million who engaged in heavy alcohol use.
Signs And Symptoms Of Alcohol Addiction
Because alcohol is legal and socially acceptable, alcoholism can be harder to realize than drug addiction for many. Many can drink socially and moderately, while believing they are functional, however, when you drink regularly or binge drink, you will develop an addiction and can display the following signs of alcoholism.
- Slurred speech
- Mood swings
- Memory, balance and coordination problems
- Poor reactions and judgments
- Vision/tactile problems
- Loss of consciousness
Signs of alcoholism may vary from person to person. If you suspect that you or someone you care for has an alcohol addiction, being aware of the signs can help you determine ether or not he or she should go to an alcohol rehab.
Behavioral Symptoms Of Alcohol Addiction
Alcohol abuse and alcohol dependence can prompt a variety of symptoms, depending upon factors such as the amount that the person has consumed and the length of time that he or she has been dependent upon alcohol. The following are common symptoms that may indicate the presence of alcohol use disorder:
- Abandoning or reducing participation in activities that were once enjoyed
- Spending significant amounts of time obtaining, using, or recovering from the effects of alcohol
- Unexplained absences from work
- Neglect of childcare and other household responsibilities
- Continuing to abuse alcohol even after experiencing negative physical, psychological, social, interpersonal, or occupational consequences related to prior alcohol use
- Using alcohol is situations where such behavior is physically hazardous
What to Look for in an Alcohol Rehab
Families can be a big help to people in need of alcohol rehab. These are just a few questions families should ask the treatment providers they are considering:
- Does the facility offer inpatient or outpatient care?
- Is medical detox provided?
- Are there treatment options for co-occurring disorders?
- What does a typical treatment plan look like?
- What staff and support team members are available?
- How is the facility set up?
- What are the costs involved?
Types of Treatment for Alcoholism
The good news is that treatment for alcoholism does exist. No two people are alike, so the specific course of treatment can vary from one person to the next. The important first step is to have the problem evaluated by one of RehabinNYC addiction recovery specialists, at which point an individualized alcoholism treatment plan can be developed.
Alcohol Detox Center
Depending on the severity of alcoholism, detox is usually the first step in the recovery process. Detoxing from alcohol can be very dangerous and can sometimes lead to death if not handled in a safe manner. It is essential that this process takes place at a professional alcohol detox facility. Don’t attempt to detox on your own. A clinical detox at an alcohol detox center is highly recommended; home detox is dangerous and unsafe.
Inpatient Alcohol Rehab Center
Most clients will continue from detox into an inpatient, residential alcohol rehab program, which provides clients with several benefits. Around-the-clock medical supervision is offered. Above It All’s treatment facility accommodations are peaceful, private and luxurious—perfect for focusing on recovery. Safety is always the top priority, and intensive therapy sessions can ensure that the proper foundations are laid for long-term recovery.
Outpatient Alcohol Rehab
An individual who has been sober for a while and is able to meet their daily responsibilities and live drug and alcohol-free are good candidates for this program. Residents in our Discovery Transitions outpatient alcohol treatment program meet regularly with our staff, participate in therapy sessions, and are closely monitored for their progress. Our goal with this program is to help participants continue to develop the skills necessary to remain sober.
Does Alcohol Treatment Really Work?
Does treatment really work? There are a lot of great arguments on either side but the one thing that everyone gets right is that you have to do what is right for you. That could mean quitting cold turkey and never stepping foot in a meeting. It could also mean going to a meeting every day for the first 90 days. If you need the structure and support that an intensive residential treatment program can offer then, by all means, do that. The key to long-term recovery is to figure out a path that is right for you.

What to Expect
Drawing on decades of experience and research, treatment includes:
Exploring Recovery – In this stage, one is ready to truly explore recovery. A more clear picture of what their life could be like without drinking starts to take shape in their mind and they start to learn more about recovery (instead of just the addiction itself). This is the stage where most people will begin seeking help in the form of alcoholism treatment (like a residential treatment program).
Early Recovery: This is an incredible stage of recovery but also one of great vulnerability. A time of breaking bonds and relationships, quitting on toxic behaviors and people who played a big part in the active addiction but also a time of creating new friendships, habits, and behaviors that promote a strong recovery.
Active Recovery and Maintenance – Not every person’s journey looks the same. Everyone has different backgrounds, stories, medical requirements, and co-occurring disorders that contribute to how their program should be structured. It’s not linear. That’s why they call it the cycle of addiction.
