How we treat alcohol addiction
Treating alcohol addiction and mental health conditions
Alcohol addiction often co-occurs with mental health disorders. Research has shown that individuals with mental health conditions are more likely to experience alcohol or substance use disorders, and vice versa. Common mental health conditions that are associated with alcohol addiction include depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, and PTSD.
What is dual diagnosis treatment?
Dual diagnosis refers to both a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), in 2018, 9.2 million U.S. adults experienced mental illness and a substance use disorder.
Evidence-based approach to treatment
We have documented quality-of-life improvements in many areas of clients that maintain sobriety. Often towards the end of treatment, we have documented decreases in anxiety, PTSD, and depression symptoms. Clients have also expressed a sense of overall better physical and mental health. This can be due in part to the robust therapeutic approach and a focus on holistic recovery. Significant quality of life improvement across the board for many of our clients has also been reported.
What is alcohol rehabilitation?
Alcohol rehab is a form of treatment that helps individuals overcome alcohol addiction and dependency. It typically involves a combination of therapy, counseling, and support groups to help individuals identify the underlying causes of their addiction and develop healthy coping mechanisms. Rehab may also include medical interventions to manage withdrawal symptoms and provide support for physical and mental health. The goal of alcohol rehab is to help individuals achieve lasting sobriety and improve their overall quality of life.
How do I inform work about treatment?
Residential alcohol addiction treatment falls under medical care. Federal laws are in place to protect employees so that they can take extended periods for medical reasons. This is categorized under FMLA. The family medical emergency leave act. Sometimes clients are also able to request short-term disability while in treatment.
