With both inpatient and outpatient alcohol treatment centres, there are many options available for those seeking help. For those people who have not yet reached the point of dependency on alcohol but definitely see a drinking problem, Outpatient Treatment may be suitable. People who fall into this group may be social drinkers or once drinking has started, they find it difficult to stop.
Inpatient programmes are designed for those people who have actually developed a physical dependancy to alcohol, or feel that the consequences are too great. This group of people have lost the ability to stop drinking on their own, and their bodies have an acute negative reaction to the absence of alcohol. Daily living, without taking a drink becomes unbearable.
One of the concerns for people entering treatment is the worry of other people finding out. Alcohol rehab centres should offer confidential treatment and should do everything they can to keep your anonymity safe. For this reason, it is important that you choose a centre with professional and well trained staff.
One of the other concerns for people is sharing a room with another person. Depending on where in the world you are being treated, many centres actually do require this. Sharing does prevent isolating in one’s room, being in close proximity with others can be beneficial to the treatment process.
The length of stay for treatment can depend on many factors. The industry standard, if there is such a thing, is anywhere between 30, 60 or 90 days. The minimal amount of time for effective treatment widely thought of to be 30 days, although this obviously a hugely subjective topic. In more serious cases a longer stay of 60 or 90 days may be recommended.
It is imperative that the newly sober/clean person is free from the temptation to drink and given an environment to explore recovery in an in-depth manner. The education process is also a crucial element – to learn more about this disease and its effect on ‘the addict’ and their life.
During the first hours and days of treatment, the individual should be given a complete medical and psychological evaluation. It is during this process that drinking habits and drug use are explored in detail. The treatment process is developed around the information gathered during this time and an individual programme should then be designed. To make the withdrawal process as smooth as possible, treatment centres provide medication, healthy meals and rest.
The next element of treatment is therapy. The group therapy sessions are one of the most effective tools used to treat alcoholism and addiction. It also allows the individual to share addiction issues and finding others have often very similar experiences. Individual therapy also be offered for a more intense session with a professional.
With so many clinics to choose from, it is important to find one that you are comfortable with. Specialized care for religion, age, gender or other groups can be found in different centres. A thorough search will provide the desired information.
