Know the signs that may show you that you need go to alcohol rehab.

Are you wondering if a loved one needs alcohol rehab or if they just like to drink a little too much? Although alcohol rehab is not for everyone and it is not an absolute necessity for some people, there are some warning signs that you can learn to recognize that will help you to make the decision as to whether a loved one has a drinking problem and should seek help at an alcohol rehab center or if they are not as bad off as you think.

Alcohol Addiction Warning Signs

If you notice that a loved one has any of the following warning signs of alcohol addiction or a serious problem with alcohol then it’s time to start thinking about getting help at a rehab center before it’s too late. Some of the most common signs that there’s a serious problem with alcohol include:

  1. DUI or other trouble with the law as a result of drinking
  2. Missing work or school as a result of drinking or being hung over
  3. Fighting with friends or family members and suffering destroyed relationships due to drinking
  4. Being unable to regulate the amount of alcohol that is consumed, saying that they’ll stop drinking but they don’t
  5. Starting the day with a shot, beer or other form of consumption of alcohol
  6. Craving alcohol, wasting precious time trying to find alcohol or get enough money to buy more alcohol
  7. Suffering withdrawal symptoms when not drinking
  8. Getting a hangover and still drinking again even though you know the consequences of the alcohol
  9. Suffering from blackouts or forgetting what happened while drinking
  10. Suffering from other health conditions such as kidney or liver problems that can be related to drinking

If any of the above warning signs are present it’s important to seek help immediately. Alcohol rehab centers can reverse many of the signs and symptoms of alcoholism and help an individual to overcome the dangers and deficits of addiction but only when the addict seeks help and works to get well. The longer that alcohol addiction goes unnoticed or is left untreated the more likely it will be for a more serious situation to occur, for a consequence to be suffered that cannot be fixed or for the end result to be death from addiction.

If you or someone you know is showing any of the above signs of alcohol addiction, it’s important to seek help immediately. Alcohol rehab centers provide counseling, therapy and support during this precise time of need making it possible for those who are mildly, moderately or severely addicted to alcohol to overcome addiction, heal physically and psychologically and live sober. Before the consequences are too severe to overcome, get help for alcohol addiction by calling 800-481-6320Who Answers? to speak with a Rehab Centers.com specialist about local alcohol rehab centers today.
