Risks of Alcoholism and Alcohol Addiction
Alcohol can have a serious impact on the body and heavy will lead to many medical problems and psychological conditions. All drinking — even rare incidents of binge drinking — cripple the immune system, causing users to be more susceptible to infections such as influenza and pneumonia. Alcohol addiction puts many different organs at risk, including the pancreas, which can make toxic substances in the presence of alcohol and lead to pancreatitis. Other prevalent health problems among alcoholics and alcohol abusers are heart damage, stretching of the heart, irregular heartbeat and stroke. Also, heavy consumption of alcohol can lead to cancers of the mouth, esophagus, throat, liver and breasts. Liver damage is probably the best-documented result of drug and alcohol abuse. Liver problems include steatosis (fatty liver), alcoholic hepatitis (liver inflammation), fibrosis (formation of excessive tissue in the liver) and cirrhosis (hardening). The liver processes and cleanses toxins from the body, so a damaged liver can result in an agonizing death.
Alcohol is responsible for countless unwanted side effects on the body and the brain. Even the occasional binge has side effects such as:
- Reduced Inhibitions
- Motor Impairment
- Breathing Complications
Other dangers of drinking include:
- Vehicle Accidents
- Violent and Dangerous Behavior
Our Custom-Designed Treatment Programs
A custom-created therapy program is the best method for addressing alcohol and drug abuse. Each individual patient has different needs. No two patients are exactly the same. Each individual has a different past. Our facility provides affordable, efficient rehab programs. These programs may be completed in one, two, or three months, depending on the patient’s requirements. It’s occasionally possible to achieve long term sobriety in a one-month program. However, usually the longer treatment lasts the more likely that the patient is able to maintain their sobriety goals. At our recovery drug center, every client’s individual circumstances are analyzed during the intake period. This allows for the most efficient and most beneficial treatment plans to be developed. We offer the best combination of affordable outpatient costs. This is then blended with the same 24-hour monitored care that is expected in top quality inpatient facility.
Safe Medical Detox
Depending on the seriousness of the alcohol use disorder, a detox procedure may be required before rehabilitation can start. Particularly for severe alcoholics, detox without clinical help can be tremendously harmful, or even deadly. Side effects of alcohol withdrawal can vary from mild to severe, including:
- Trouble sleeping
- Irregular heart rate
- Loss of consciousness
