For someone struggling with alcohol, going sober can seem like an impossible goal to reach. But with the help of caring, professional medical staff, recovery is possible. That’s where Albuquerque Addiction Rehab comes in. We can’t promise that the process will be easy. But we can promise to do everything in our power to ensure you have the motivation and courage to face this demon, and overcome it.
Admitting your Problem
The toughest step when beginning recovery is admitting you have a problem. Patients not willing to admit to addiction will most likely not be willing to put forth any effort, and therefore succumb back to square one. Once they have recognized they have a substance abuse problem, they will be ready to start the recovery process. It usually takes an event that is earth-shattering for one to confess they have a problem. This event is often referred to as “hitting rock bottom” or “seeing the light”. If you’re at rock bottom, your experience might differ from someone else’s. Loss of friends and family, loss of a job, loss of a home and loss of a relationship are the common events that can cause a patient to seek help for their problems.
Our Treatment for Alcoholism
Going through withdrawal can cause a lot of emotions, ranging from fear, anxiety and depression. Those that have dealt with it before are even wearier. Albuquerque Addiction Rehab provides a medically-managed detoxification program that is utilized to treat the most severe withdrawal symptoms. Going through alcohol detoxification is more deadly than any other drug detox. It can cause symptoms such as seizures and delirium tremors. But luckily Albuquerque Addiction Rehab has caring, exceptional health care professionals on site, ensuring a safe and calming atmosphere for the detox process. Also, benzodiazepines are frequently used during the alcohol detox for their anticonvulsant (anti-seizure) and anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) properties. Patients can be assured that they will not face the withdrawal procedures alone.
After Detox comes Therapy
Once the client’s body has been cleared from the detox portion of rehab, they are now able to participate in behavioral treatment programs. At this time, the client will attend a number of individual and group therapy sessions that focus on underlying the various causes of addiction. Here at Albuquerque Addiction Rehab, we believe that with a better understanding of the dynamics of addiction, patients can now better recognize the common triggers that might lead them to a relapse.
It is also important to participate in an intervention, which is a gathering of an addicted person, the therapist and all the people who care about the addicted person. The therapist will lead the way while the family talks to the patient about their feelings. If someone you love as a drug problem, confronting them may not have always worked. Albuquerque Addiction Rehab provides a caring, stabilized setting for the intervention to be successful for all parties.
