Alcohol is addictive and frequently combined with other drugs. Alcohol remains the number one drug of choice for all age groups.
Individuals with alcohol use disorders feel like they need a drink to function normally. Professional goals, personal relationships, and physical health are progressively affected by the effects of misusing alcohol.
Hanley Center’s team members understand this progressive, often fatal, disease and are fully prepared to treat those suffering from alcohol addiction at our resort-style alcohol treatment center in Florida.
TYPES OF ADDICTIONS
Risk Factors for Alcoholism
Genetic predisposition and environmental factors play roles in alcohol misuse, as do co-occurring mental health diagnoses. When setting up a comprehensive, evidence-based treatment plan these factors must be considered.
Common Signs of Alcohol Addiction
Early stages of alcohol addiction have an increased chance of successful recovery if treatment is sought out. Unfortunately, most people take great care to hide their drinking habits, so recognizing the symptoms of an alcohol use disorder can be challenging.
The signs of chronic, prolonged disease are often more severe and recognizable.
Signs of alcohol addiction include:
- Unable to control consumption levels
- Increased spending on alcohol
- Drinking despite consequences
- Inability to stop despite wanting to
- Unable to maintain long-term sobriety
- Focused on successful drinking
- Personal relationships suffer
- Increased amounts needed
- Violent actions after drinking
Comprehensive Medical Care is Critical to Success
Alcoholism affects every organ, but compassionate, quality, evidence-based treatment helps recovery.
Conditions related to alcohol abuse we see include:
- Cirrhosis of the liver
- Cardiac problems
- Gastrointestinal issues
- High blood pressure
- Cognitive changes
- Sleep disorders
- Uncontrolled anger
Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms
Alcohol withdrawal symptoms, particularly those that occur with long-time users, can result in serious medical consequences without professional medical supervision.
- Uncontrolled hand or body-shaking
- Profuse sweating
- Extreme agitation
- Intense anxiety
Our thorough physical and psychological assessments uncover and address co-occurring mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
