You May Need Alcohol Rehab If…

You’re a drinker. Maybe you always have been. But it’s not a problem.

If you’re not sure if your drinking is an issue, read on to see if you may need alcohol rehab.

If you’re concerned about your drinking, call 888-646-0635Who Answers? today to learn about your addiction treatment options.

You’ve Developed a Tolerance

After you’ve been drinking awhile, chances are you will develop a tolerance and it will take more alcohol for you to feel the same effect. This is a sign of addiction and may mean that it’s time for you to seek out alcohol rehab.

Psychological Dependence

Need Alcohol Rehab

If your body can’t function properly without alcohol, you need rehab.

If, after a hard day at work, the only thing you can think about is making it to happy hour so you can get a drink, you probably need alcohol addiction treatment. Psychological dependence leads to excessive drinking that occurs more often than those without it.

Physical Dependence

More concerning—and dangerous—than psychological dependence, physical dependence occurs when your body no longer functions properly without alcohol.

You may get withdrawal symptoms, which can include hand tremors, nausea, or even delirium tremens (often called the DTs). For some individuals, alcohol withdrawal causes seizures, which can be extremely dangerous and even deadly.

People Are Concerned

If your friends, family, or coworkers are starting to express concern over your drinking, there’s a good chance it may be a problem. Others often recognize warning signs of alcohol addiction before it’s recognized by the individual.

You Feel Out of Control

You may tell yourself that you’re just going to have one drink, but once the alcohol touches your lips, there’s no stopping it. If that’s the case then there’s a good chance your drinking is out of control and you need alcohol rehab. When alcohol consumption becomes something you feel needs to be controlled, it’s time to get help.

Slacking on Responsibilities

Sure, everyone blows off responsibilities once in a while, but when it becomes a regular occurrence, and one that’s associated with drinking, it’s time to stop drinking before alcohol starts taking things from you like your career, home, family, or life.

You Black Out

If you black out when you drink, there’s no doubt you’re in need of professional addiction services. Blacking out is a blatant sign that your alcohol use is a problem, and a big one. It can cause a range of problems and can lead to dangerous behaviors.

You Hide Your Use

If your drinking isn’t a problem, why hide it? If you notice you’re starting to tell little white lies about where you were after work or wait until your husband leaves before taking the wine bottles to the recycling, then it’s probably time to consider alcohol rehab.
