Signs Your Loved One Needs Alcohol Rehab
Are you concerned that one of your loved ones might be exhibiting suspicious behaviour when it comes to the extent of their drinking, but aren’t completely certain? The following is a list of discernible telltale signs that can help you to determine the difference between social drinking habits and when it’s time to consider enrolling in alcohol rehab.
- Increased Tolerance
The more alcohol you consume on a regular basis, the more your physical tolerance will increase over time. This means that the same amount of alcohol will no longer suffice to help you achieve the level of intoxication you desire. Most people tend to boast about the fact that they’ve built up a high tolerance or strong resistance for alcohol and that they can consume larger quantities than their friends without feeling the effects. However, this is a clear indicator that they’re slowly damaging their body from the inside out and it should be taken as a sign that the person might need some help.
- Demonstrating Withdrawal Symptoms
Alcohol withdrawal symptoms include sweating profusely, mild or severe involuntary tremors, nausea, vomiting, headaches, and getting the chills. If someone you know is exhibiting any of these symptoms after not consuming alcohol for a short period of time, then this means that their body has likely developed a dependency on alcohol and can’t function normally without it.
- Losing Track of Alcohol Consumption and Neglecting Responsibilities
If you’re always finding yourself in situations where you’re losing track of how much alcohol you’ve consumed or even if you’re always convincing yourself that you feel fine and can continue drinking, then this is a course for concern. Letting your alcohol consumption dictate your life or derail your other important plans and obligations is a definite sign that you need help.
- Harming Themselves or Others
If your loved one’s addiction has the potential to either inadvertently or purposely put themselves or others in harm’s way, then this is a major indication that their habit has gotten totally out of control and should be addressed immediately. In some cases, the person might think that they’re capable of driving or operating heavy machinery while under the influence and this can cause potentially serious injury or even death. On the other hand, alcohol can have varying affects on individuals and it has the capacity to induce a great deal of violent behaviour in some people, which they might take out on themselves or others.
How Can You Convince an Addict to Go to Rehab?
Unfortunately, you can’t legally force an addict to enter rehab against their will and even if you could, this would be the least effective method of providing them with the support they need. In order for the treatment to be as impactful and sustainable as possible, the addict needs to feel loved and supported rather than like a shameful burden on their family and friends. There are several methods you can undertake to help motivate your loved one into making the right decision and taking the necessary steps to get the help they need.
First and foremost, you should consider staging a well thought out intervention where all of the person’s family and friends can gather to air their grievances regarding the person’s addiction in a non-judgmental and understanding manner. Planning and sensitivity are key in this type of situation, so be sure to tread lightly while also maintaining honesty and respect. The last thing you want to do is trigger the person to go off on another bender. Considering these types of events can get a little heated and out of control, it might be helpful to hire a professional impartial interventionist to serve as a mediator. You should also contact a prominent rehab facility in advance to let them know about the situation and have a mode of transportation on standby to take the person there presuming the success of the intervention.
FAQ About Alcohol Addiction Treatment
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions that we receive from prospective patients regarding alcohol addiction treatment at our facility.
- What are the signs of alcohol addiction or abuse?
By definition, an addiction is the continued use of a substance or exhibiting certain behavioural patterns despite the fact that they’ve rendered extremely negative consequences in the person’s life. One of the major signs of any addiction is if the person loses control over their impulses and is unable to stop using the substance in question. Oftentimes, alcohol abuse or addiction is a surface indication or symptom there are much more pressing deep-seated emotional or mental issues at play that must be addressed and absolved.
- What constitutes alcoholism?
Certain erratic behaviours such as alcoholism or alcohol abuse are characterized by an endless need
to continue indulging in a mentally, emotionally, and physically destructive habit. If a person values having a drink more than spending quality time with their loved ones, begins neglecting their responsibilities, and becomes entirely consumed by their drinking habit, then this is a good indication that they may have a serious problem.
- Is alcoholism a genetic disease?
There are numerous factors that can influence a person’s chances of becoming an alcoholic including social surroundings, emotional problems, physical ailments, mental health problems, and especially early and constant exposure to alcoholic tendencies. For instance, people who grew up with alcoholic parents or guardians are far more likely to develop alcoholic tendencies later in life than those who had relatively alcohol-free childhoods.
- Is alcoholism a disease or a mental illness?
Alcoholism shares qualities of both a physical disease and mental illness; therefore, it’s technically classified as both. Cravings and withdrawal periods carry countless physical manifestations including severe shaking, dizziness, nausea, profuse sweating, and sometimes even vomiting. As a mental disorder, alcoholism also stems from the person’s constant need to escape the realities they must face as part of their daily lives, and in some cases, it even helps people to figuratively drown their internal demons. That’s why many top notch and credible alcohol rehab centers such as Freedom From Addiction have qualified mental health professionals on staff or on standby to help patients get to the root of their addictions.
- What if I don’t want to stay in rehab?
No one can legally force you to stay in rehab. Unless you’re admitted due to a court-ordered mandate, then your enrollment in a rehab facility is completely voluntary and we won’t force you to complete the program against your will. However, part of our commitment to ensuring your overall well being and helping you overcome your addiction is to, at the very least, try to convince you to continue with your treatment. We understand that the first few weeks can be very challenging to the extent that many people consider giving up, but we always encourage our patients to stick it out until the end.
- What happens if I relapse and start drinking again?
The reality is that the majority of people who are in rehab battling an addiction are likely to relapse at some point during their lives. Many addicts relapse multiple times and there’s no shame in it. Certain life circumstances may trigger relapses, which is why we offer comprehensive ongoing rehab aftercare and support for as long as you need it. Our top priority is providing our patients with the appropriate tools they need to guarantee long-term success and survival. No matter what, you’ll always be a recovering addict. Recovery isn’t a destination, but a lifelong journey that’s full of obstacles and we’re here to provide you with the guidance you need to achieve it.
- Do you work with LGBT+ clients?
Absolutely. At Freedom From Addiction, we don’t discriminate against any group of people regardless of their gender identity, expression, or sexual orientation. The LGBT+ community is one of the most vulnerable groups when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction and they need a great deal of support to help them overcome their problems.
- Can I work while in rehab?
While some other alcohol addiction centres operate on an outpatient and inpatient basis, here at Freedom From Addiction, we believe that the latter is the better option for achieving success with out patients. As a strictly inpatient recovery program, we require you to live in our facility for the duration of your treatment. This means that you may need to take some time off work. Under municipal laws, your employer is required to permit this time off and can’t let you go for undergoing alcohol addiction treatment.
- Is alcohol rehab confidential?
Absolutely. Unless required by law, we’ll never share any of your files or personal information with anyone, nor will we disclose any of the details associated with your treatment without your permission.
- Is my family allowed to visit during my treatment?
Your family members and friends play an integral role in the success of your alcohol addiction treatment. As long as you’re on good terms with them, then they’ll be allowed to come in for either scheduled visits or during regular visiting hours. If your therapist advises that they may have a negative impact on your recovery, then we may recommend that you forgo seeing them until further notice.
- How much does treatment cost?
Generally, inpatient treatments are a little more expensive than outpatient programs because they require patients to live on the premises full-time rather than coming and going as they please. Some patients require more intensive treatment than others and this will also have a significant impact on the cost of treatment. Keep in mind that the cost of rehabilitation also covers all of your living expenses, prescription medications, as well as the use of our facilities and the professional services we offer.
- Are the costs of your services covered by insurance?
Most insurance companies do cover either some or all of the cost of alcohol addiction treatment, but you need to discuss the extent of the coverage with your private insurance company. Most facilities also offer payment plans to help patients pay for their treatment.
