Let us help you find a alcohol rehab program!

Alcoholism is a serious condition that warrants immediate treatment at an alcohol rehab center. If you aren’t sure what types of services and treatment are offered at alcohol rehab then chances are you are afraid to seek out the treatment for fear of the unknown. We all fear what we don’t know or are unsure of but seeking treatment for alcoholism should not be put off just because you don’t know what alcohol rehab entails. Here’s a look at what you must know about alcohol rehab:

Taking the Fear Out of the Unknown

Alcohol addiction is treatable with long term care and support such as that which is provided at an alcohol rehab center. The counselors and therapists are educated and knowledgeable about the various problems that come as a result of alcoholism and they are prepared to provide treatment and support for those addicted to alcohol, offering a chance for a full recovery from alcoholism. Every alcohol rehab center is different but for the most part they all focus on similar treatment plans which include the 12 step program and behavioral changes that will ultimately result in an improved ability to handle the stress that once caused the addict to drink.

Detox at Alcohol Rehab

When you first enter an alcohol rehab program you will have to detox from the alcoholism. Alcohol detox is a process of eliminating alcohol from your body by not drinking anymore. Alcohol detox may be difficult and painful but depending on the services and treatment offered at the rehab center that you choose you may be given some medication that will help make the withdrawal symptoms that you feel during detox a little more manageable and easier to handle. The withdrawal symptoms will not last real long and once you have successfully detoxed from alcohol you will feel much better.

Counseling at Alcohol Rehab

Following your initial detox you will begin treatment at the alcohol rehab center. Treatment may include various types of counseling such as group counseling and individual counseling sessions. During group counseling, it’s ok to feel as though you don’t really fit in or don’t really want to participate but you should still try. Over time the group counseling sessions will feel more comfortable to you and you should really benefit from them if you actively participate in the sessions. Try to find something you can relate to and add to each group session in order to make the most out of the counseling that you receive at alcohol rehab.

Individual counseling sessions in an alcohol rehab program are geared at allowing you to learn about your own addiction and triggers. You do not have to be afraid to open up to your therapist and in fact you should “tell all” in order to get the most out of this services as well. The more you are able to get to the root of your problem the more likely you will be to truly benefit from the counseling that you receive and the more help your therapist will be able to offer you in teaching you the skills that you will need to prevent future relapse.

Follow Up Care at Alcohol Rehab

When choosing an alcohol rehab program you will want to make sure that the program of treatment that you choose also offers follow up care. Follow up care is alcoholism counseling and therapy that is provided on a long term basis once you have been released from alcohol rehab. This type of care includes various meetings such as Alcoholics Anonymous which are offered either as an outpatient service at the alcohol rehab center or at another location. You may also receive individual counseling weekly, monthly or even semi annually as part of the follow up care that is provided by the alcohol rehab program that you choose. Most important is that you continue follow up care to help assure your successful rehabilitation from alcoholism so that you can live sober.
