Outpatient Alcohol Rehab Program
Drinking problems are defined not only by how much and how often people drink, but also by the effect drinking has on their lives. Your health, home life, social life, and career can be impacted. Additionally, serious legal issues can result from alcohol abuse and lowered inhibitions. Seek an alcohol addiction treatment program at our outpatient substance use disorder treatment center at True Life Center today.
Identifying an Alcohol Use Disorder
In the movies, the character with a drinking problem is easy to spot because he or she is excessively sullen, gregarious, or combative. Outside of Hollywood fiction, however, problem drinkers often look like our neighbors, co-workers, loved ones, and friends. They may be highly respected in their careers, beloved by their families, and appear to drink only when socially appropriate. The outward signs and symptoms of a drinking problem aren’t always obvious.
A problematic drinking habit often begins as a way to relax or transition from work to home. Many people begin using alcohol as a way to reduce social anxiety so that they can enjoy themselves. As a result, some individuals find that they need alcohol to fall asleep or maintain a regular sleep pattern. Unfortunately, recreational drinking can spiral out of control and take over their lives.
Consequently, if your drinking patterns cause significant distress to those around you or impeding your daily functioning, you may have an alcohol use disorder. This may be the time to look at True Life’s holistic recovery center. We offer an alcohol addiction treatment program that San Diego residents can rely on.
What are Signs to Seek Alcohol Addiction Treatment?
Any negative side effect of your drinking can be a sign that you should seek alcohol addiction rehab. However, there are a few common symptoms and signs that alcoholism has begun to take control away from you. To illustrate some of these issues, consider these signs:
- Being unable to limit the amount of alcohol you drink
- Making unsuccessful attempts to cut down on the amount you drink
- Spending a lot of time drinking or recovering
- Feeling a strong craving or urge to drink alcohol
- Failing to fulfill major obligations at work, school or home
- Giving up or reducing social and work activities and hobbies
- Needing more and more alcohol to feel its effects
- Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when you don’t drink
Significantly, experiencing alcohol withdrawal is a huge red flag that you should seek treatment. These withdrawal symptoms can include delirium, shakes, and seizures that can be life-threatening. However, professional treatment at an alcohol addiction rehab can save your life.
