A person addicted to alcohol is not the person they once were before addiction entered their life. At one time they were a responsible, trustworthy, loving and caring person which their addiction has stripped away without their even knowing it or being able to admit it. Many become so consumed by their alcohol addiction that they will lie, cheat and steal to those closest to them to be able to have the next drink with the end result being guilt of the actions they took in order to get more alcohol.
An alcohol rehab program will handle all aspects of the person’s alcohol addiction, both the physical and mental. This is where you need to start researching what type of alcohol rehabilitation program best suits the one addicted, be it a twelve step program, alternative program, drug substitution program or alcohol rehabilitation programs that are entirely drug free.
Another aspect to look into would be whether outpatient treatment would be sufficient or if a thirty, ninety day or long term (3 months plus) treatment rehab would serve the purpose required. Many need a long term inpatient alcohol addiction rehab due to the fact they need time to gain the skills and confidence to live life without alcohol. The thought of “never drinking again” can be the trigger that gets a person with a short sobriety time to relapse and fall back into the cycle of alcohol addiction.
Alcohol addiction programs offer qualified staff to help those addicted acquire the skills (i.e., surrounding themselves with the right groups of people, make the right, rational choices that will improve their life and those around them and become the responsible loving person they once were) needed to step back out into the world with confidence without the crutch of alcohol.
This does not happen overnight. The person recovering from the alcohol addiction must decide to be honest and face whatever demons have been chasing them. This includes looking at the cause for them to drink and become willing to make whatever changes are needed, both internally and externally to achieve the skills to stand tall and make the right life choices.
After completing the alcohol addiction program the person will feel a sense of accomplishment and pride in looking in the mirror and seeing they had an addiction to alcohol and chose to handle it instead of letting the addiction control their life.
