Risks of Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse
Health problems and mental complications are a standard consequence of the complex ways alcohol changes the human body. Probably the best-known effect of drug and alcohol addiction is liver damage, like steatosis (fatty liver), alcoholic hepatitis (liver inflammation), fibrosis (formation of excessive tissue in the liver), and cirrhosis (hardening). When the liver doesn’t work properly, pollutants and toxins cannot be cleansed from the body, leading to a slow and painful death. Other organs are compromised by excessive drinking, including the pancreas, which starts to excrete poisonous substances whenever alcohol is consumed and can result in pancreatitis. Many sorts of cancer can result from alcohol consumption, including cancer of the mouth, esophagus, throat, liver, and breast. Additionally, drinking — even too much drinking on a single occasion — weakens the immune system and makes users prone to diseases like pneumonia and hepatitis. Heart damage, stretching of the heart muscle, abnormal heartbeat and stroke are also not unusual medical problems that alcoholics and alcohol abusers endure.
The brain is also adversely affected on account of alcohol use. Occasional binge drinking can have unhealthy side effects, such as:
- diminished inhibitions
- motor impairment
- breathing problems
People who chronically consume too much alcohol regularly suffer from alcohol use disorders, but their mental health suffers in other ways as well. Alcoholic addiction treatment treats people who not only suffer from alcohol use disorders but the other mental disorders that often accompany it. Misuse of alcohol also increases the chance of:
- vehicle injuries
- violent and risky behavior
Customized Alcohol Rehab Plans
Our alcohol rehab program is reasonably priced and effective, and can be completed in one, two or three months depending on the particular needs of each client. It’s sometimes possible for someone to achieve long-term sobriety in a 28-day program, but studies show that the longer alcohol rehab lasts the better the chances of achieving their long-term sobriety goals. At our treatment center, each and every patient’s unique situation is assessed during the intake period, and the most comprehensive and productive therapy programs are developed. They not only offer custom-created rehab plans at affordable outpatient prices, but their programs also come with the 24-hour monitored care expected in top-quality inpatient facilities.
How Our Alcohol Rehab Can Help
If alcohol use disorder is very serious, detoxification may be necessary before rehabilitation can begin. Especially for severe alcoholics, detoxification without medical assistance can be unsafe or even lethal. Consequences of alcohol withdrawal can vary from mild to deadly, including:
- trouble sleeping
- irregular heart rate
- pupils different size
- visual hallucinations
With the help of our treatment center‘s trained medical staff, alcoholics can detox in a comfortable, controlled setting. It is vital that addicts seek treatment after detox, since detoxification only helps them to withdraw from the substance they abuse. Treatment, or rehab, is the only sure way that an addict can actually recover from an alcohol use disorder. If you or someone you love is in need of inpatient rehab, give us a call at 931-910-2783 today.
