Effective Alcohol Rehab Center and Facility

If a person is not addicted to alcohol it is difficult to understand someone you love and care for who is battling an addiction to alcohol cannot "just stop". There are many reasons a person addicted has difficulty stopping and that is where alcohol rehab centers have the answers.


For many addicted to alcohol their biggest fear of quitting is the withdrawal process with good reason. When withdrawing from alcohol also known as "detoxing" the body feels the effects of "no alcohol" with the symptoms of cold chills and sweats, nausea, diarrhea, insomnia, irritability and depression which can last for several days.

An alcohol rehab center will have a physician on staff that will do a physical upon arrival and set up the course for the withdrawal process. Some alcohol rehab facilities use prescribed drugs while others use the "no drug" policy. Whichever the case, the alcohol addiction rehab center will have the trained personnel to get the addicted person through the withdrawal aspect as comfortable as possible.

Once through the withdrawal odds are there could be some medical problems brought on by alcohol addiction which must be handled before a person can then begin the self-discovery to begin a sober life. One of the medical problems incurred by alcohol consumption and alcohol addiction is nutritional deficiency. Nutrition is a process that serves two purposes: to provide energy and to maintain body structure and function. Those addicted to alcohol often eat poorly, limiting their supply of essential nutrients and affecting both energy supply and structure maintenance. Furthermore, alcohol interferes with the nutritional process by affecting digestion, storage, utilization, and excretion of nutrients. As part of your recovery, alcohol rehabilitation centers can assist you in making the necessary dietary and lifestyle changes that will help permanently break the addiction to alcohol.

Some of the other effects alcohol has on the body are an increase in gouty arthritis, an increase in the risk of cancer in the liver, pancreas, rectum, breast, mouth, pharynx, larynx and esophagus and heart disease by raising the blood pressure, blood lipids and the risk of stroke.  The most common known effects of alcohol addiction on the body are liver disease (hepatitis and cirrhosis) and kidney disease. The medical staff at the alcohol rehab center will get the physical body handled so the person can then move on to the recovery aspect of the program.

Once feeling better the addicted person begins the journey of self-discovery on why they originally began drinking, why they became addicted and why they continued to drink even knowing the negative consequences of their drinking not only on themselves, their families but also friends and loved ones. The staff at the alcohol rehab center will help guide them through this process which might sound easy but takes much courage to confront.

Alcohol rehabilitation facilities allow graduates to leave the program free of the chains of addiction that alcohol once had on them and have the opportunity to become the person they always dreamed of and their loved ones also knew they could become.
