Alcohol Rehabilitation: Getting Over the Fear of Detox

As a recovering alcoholic with over 22 years of sobriety, I have been blessed with the opportunity to help a number of fellow alcoholics new in recovery. Recently, a good friend who sought out my help was deathly afraid of one particular thing—going through detox.

In years past, alcohol rehabilitation didn’t have the resources available today with modern technology and medical advances, so detoxification from alcohol could indeed be very painful to endure. Detox symptoms can vary depending on the length of use and average amount of alcohol consumed daily. Nausea, vomiting, headaches, insomnia, the shakes (delirium tremens or DTs) are the more common symptoms of alcohol withdrawal, however, for alcoholics who have been drinking for longer periods of time, symptoms can be severe.

Fortunately, there are newer methods of treatment and medications that can help to greatly reduce the painful process of detox.

Addiction Treatment: How Can My Family Help with my Aftercare Plan?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, about 23,000,000 people need treatment for alcohol or drug abuse. It’s tempting to think that most of these individuals live on the street or get treatment right away, but unfortunately, addiction is a disease that hides in plain sight.

Addiction Affects the Whole Family

When a loved one is abusing drugs or alcohol, the consequences negatively affect everyone in the family. A sober spouse must take on all the responsibilities of home and childcare, and often provide financial support as well. Years of making excuses for the poor behavior of an addicted loved one can breed lingering resentment, too. Children suffer from increased anxiety. Siblings grow resentful over endless excuses and embarrassing behaviors. Getting sober is unquestionably the right move for everyone in the family, but change presents its own challenges.

12 Keys Rehab: A Private Rehab with a Design for Living that Works

The main goal at 12 Keys Rehab, as with all substance abuse rehab centers, is to give each of its clients the tools and resources that they can use to become happy and productive members of society. However, at 12 Keys, it’s the rehab treatment programs offered that make the difference.

At 12 Keys, it isn’t just about making sure the clients have the education and the tools to get sober, it’s about showing them by example that life can be thoroughly enjoyed in sobriety. The team of dedicated counselors and therapists at 12 Keys are all recovering addicts and alcoholics as well, and all of them can empathize with exactly what their clients are feeling.

For any private rehab to effectively do its job, they must be able to reach their clients and make them understand that recovery from drugs and alcohol can work, and that life can be enjoyed without the devastating circumstances brought about by addiction.
