It’s virtually impossible to escape alcohol. It’s advertised, marketed, and sold nearly everywhere. Not surprisingly, this constant barrage of alcohol advertising has been linkedto underage drinking, teen binge drinking, and greater drinking among adults.

And yes, it’s been linked to rampant alcoholism. Alcohol use disorder, more commonly known as alcoholism, affects over 17 million American adults over the age of 18. One in every 10 children live with a parent who has a problem with alcohol addiction. These are sobering statistics. Fortunately, for those living in their grip, help is at hand.

Unlike doing drugs, drinking alcohol doesn’t carry an illicit stigma. It is not only legal to drink, it’s socially acceptable, even encouraged. Drinking is associated with positive things such as celebration, holidays, relaxation, and romance. But it leads to addiction–and can make the first steps to rehabilitation and recovery challenging for the afflicted and those that love him or her.

The first step is diagnosis.

Treatments For Alcohol Addiction

Treatment for alcoholism really begins the moment that you accept the fact that you need it. Alcohol addiction is treatable, as long as you have the motivation to change your behavior–and the resilience to remain abstinent. No matter which type of sober recovery treatment you decide on, the goal is your abstinence.

Stage 1: Detox

Depending on your degree of addiction, medically supervised detoxification may be needed in order to withdraw from alcohol safely and comfortably. Which option is best for you depends on how much alcohol you’ve been drinking, how long you’ve had a problem with alcohol, and any other health issues that you may have.

Stage 2: Rehab

Attaining sobriety, and giving recovering addicts the skills needed to remain sober, often involves medication and counseling. This treatment step can be done inpatient or outpatient. Both are equally effective.

Stage 3: Maintenance

The success of this step requires that the alcohol addict be self-motivated. This requires support, and often includes attending 12-step support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and finding a sponsor.
