Treatment and Rehab

Treatment For Alcoholism

 

Liquor compulsion treatment programs manage the former user through a safe and effective medical detox, followed by counseling that targets the reasons behind addiction.

 

Options for Treatment

 

When asking our patients how alcohol problems are treated, they commonly think of 12-step programs or 28-day inpatient rehab, but it may have difficulty naming other options. There are a variety of treatment methods currently available in our rehab centers.

 

Ultimately, there are no one-size-fits to all, and what may work for one person may not be a good fit for someone else. Understanding the different options can be an essential first step.

 

Types of Treatment

 

Behavioral Treatments

 

Behavioral treatments are aimed at changing drinking behavior through counseling. Health professionals lead them and supported by studies showing they can be beneficial in many cases.

 

Medications

 

Three medications are currently approved in the United States Of America to help people stop or reduce their drinking and prevent relapse. They are prescribed by a primary care physician or other health professional and may be used alone or in combination with counseling.

 

Mutual-Support Groups

 

Alcoholics Anonymous and other 12-step programs provide peer support for people quitting or cutting back on their drinking. Combined with treatment led by health professionals, mutual-support groups can offer a valuably added layer of comfort.

 

Due to the anonymous nature of mutual-support groups, it is difficult for researchers to determine their success rates compared with those led by health professionals.

 

Starting With a Primary Care Doctor

 

For anyone thinking about treatment, talking to a primary care physician is an essential first step — he or she can be a good source for treatment referrals and medications. A primary care physician can also:

 

  • Evaluate whether a patient’s drinking pattern is risky or not
  • It helps to craft a treatment plan
  • It helps to evaluate overall health
  • Assess if medications for alcohol may be appropriate
