We are so grateful to have found Whole Recovery drug rehab. Since my daughter has returned, she is a completely different person. She has been sober now for more than six months, and the staff still check in on her from time to time. Thank you so much for your hard work and love shown to my daughter. — Ilean

Alcohol Rehab Treatment Program

At Whole Recovery Centers, we utilize many different modalities to treat alcoholism. Alcoholism is a condition that affects many different areas of a person’s life, and therefore treatment must also address those areas. At Whole Recovery Centers, our alcohol rehab treatment protocol focuses on the following areas:

1) Addressing the underlying causes that fuel alcoholism

2) Addressing imbalances in the body that are caused by long term drinking

Our unique alcohol rehab program uses a combination of traditional and holistic treatment to help our clients recover from alcoholism. This is the most effective way, as it treats the whole person, and not just certain glaring problems. Each client is treated as an individual with individual needs. For this reason no two treatment plans are the same.

Our protocol consists of daily psychotherapy, group therapy, acupuncture, massage, yoga, and nutritional therapies. We introduce you to new ways to cope with issues like anxiety, anger, and stress. Our Living In Balance program (created by Hazelden Foundation) teaches a wealth of information you need to know about addiction and the effects on the mind, body and soul. As well as preparing you for long term recovery.

The decision to get Alcohol rehabilitation is not an easy one. Some of you may be reading this, thinking to yourself: how is this happening to me? We understand this; many of us have had our own battles with addiction and have found freedom from it. If you’re looking for relief from your situation, call one of our certified professionals today. We are happy to walk you through this process — you are not alone.

Alcoholism, alcohol dependence, and alcohol abuse are different forms of problem drinking.

Alcoholism is when you have signs of physical addiction to alcohol and continue to drink, despite problems with physical health, mental health, and social, family, or job responsibilities. Alcohol may control your life and relationships.

Alcohol abuse is when your drinking leads to problems, but not physical addiction.

Causes and risk factors

There is no known cause of alcohol abuse or alcoholism. Research suggests that certain genes may increase the risk of alcoholism, but which genes and how they work are not known. How much you drink can influence your chances of becoming dependent. Those at risk for developing alcoholism include:

Men who have 15 or more drinks a week

Women who have 12 or more drinks a week

Anyone who has five or more drinks per occasion at least once a week

One drink is defined as a 12-ounce bottle of beer, a 5-ounce glass of wine, or a 1.5 ounce shot of liquor. You have an increased risk for alcohol abuse and dependence if you have a parent with alcoholism.

You may also be more likely to abuse alcohol or become dependent if you:

Are a young adult under peer pressure

Have depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, or schizophrenia

Have easy access to alcohol

Have low self-esteem

Have problems with relationships

Live a stressful lifestyle

Live in a culture where alcohol use is common and accepted

1 in 6 people in the United States have a drinking problem

Symptoms of Alcoholism

People who have alcoholism or alcohol abuse often:

Continue to drink, even when health, work, or family are being harmed

Alcohol withdrawal symptoms when you haven't had a drink for a while

Alcohol-related illnesses such as alcoholic liver disease

Signs and tests

The health care provider will perform a physical exam and ask questions about your medical and family history, including use of alcohol. The following questions are used by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism to screen for alcohol abuse or dependence:

Do you ever drive when you have been drinking?

Do you have to drink more than before to get drunk or feel the desired effect?

Have you felt that you should cut down on your drinking?

Have you ever had any blackouts after drinking?

Have you ever missed work or lost a job because of drinking?

Is someone in your family worried about your drinking?
