A person will say they are going to quit with every intention of doing so, yet something occurs, be it physical or mental and they find themselves with a drink in hand, “relapsing” once again. The usual cause for this relapse is a physical craving for alcohol. The body has become accustomed to having alcohol in its system and as the alcohol level starts to lower the body begins to feel discomfort and sends out signals to put more alcohol in to take away the physical pain. The person had every intention of not drinking again but cannot fight their own body’s craving.
The other major cause for relapse is a seemingly overwhelming problem arises and the person does not want or know how to handle so turns to alcohol to forget about it. However, the problem does not go away it usually has become worse once finally confronted. This is the aspect of alcohol addiction where the alcohol has become the solution to any problem that arises. This “not” handling problems is a key factor in the person becoming addicted to alcohol.
Somewhere in the addicted persons’ life a problem arose they did not want to handle, they had a few drinks and everything seemed better. As life continued to throw problems at them they began to turn to alcohol due to the unwillingness to confront the problem and alcohol became the solution. As the drinking increased, so have the consequences of the problems, none with good results.
For a person who wants to quit but can’t, the rehab for alcohol is the solution. Upon arrival, the rehab for alcohol will get the person through the withdrawal of alcohol and be able to help them through the cravings which will begin to decrease as the body adjusts to no alcohol in its system.
After the physical aspect is handled now comes learning or relearning the life skills needed to handle life’s problem without turning to alcohol. Some rehabs use the twelve step program others use alternative methods while some use a combination of the two.
The counselors will help the person gain the ability to use the steps or skills needed to learn situations, people and places to avoid and how to handle problems with a rational, real “can do” confront that will make the problem real and solvable without the overwhelming aspect that would make them drink. The rehab for alcohol will make sure that the once completing the program they will step out into the world the person they once were before alcohol addiction entered their life.
