Alcohol abuse and dependency is a fast growing health concern in the U.S. The National Institute of Alcohol Abuse & Alcoholism estimates that 18 million people in the U.S. struggle with alcoholism and alcohol abuse. However, alcoholism and alcohol abuse are diagnosable conditions when they impact relationships, cause harm or injury, or lower quality of life.
The way a person experiences substance abuse is also unique and individualized. You may wake up every morning with a hangover while experiencing the urge to drink to feel better. If you don’t drink, your hands are shaking and your mood is volatile. Again, forcing you to drink, which is why many patients require detox and inpatient or outpatient treatment. At New Day Recovery centers, our addiction treatment plans can help you recover from the hold that alcohol has on your life. Don’t wait any longer. Pick up the phone and call.
If you have insurance, part or all of your treatment program is most likely covered. Follow the link to use your policy to pay for rehab.
What is Alcohol Addiction?
Alcohol dependence is categorized by the need to consume alcohol. The alcoholic may try to control the intake of alcohol, but consumption is out of control. Substance use disorders essentially rewire the brain, greatly impacting your mental health, and the need for alcohol is an uncontrollable craving. In addition, it does not care about background, age, money, or social status. Alcoholism is a disease, not a weakness or lack of willpower.
Once a person is addicted it is extremely difficult to quit without the help of addiction services or recovery programs. New Day Recovery knows the stronghold of alcohol and our rehab centers can help you recover. Contact our treatment centers today.
