When am I an alcohol addict and in need of an inpatient alcohol rehab? Alcohol has been normalized in many cultures and societies where it is viewed as a party drink that helps people lighten up, yet the truth about it remains clear – drinking may lead to alcohol addiction and alcoholism. Alcohol is a dangerous substance that takes the lives of thousands yearly with causes ranging from drunk driving to alcohol poisoning to more slow and painful deaths like liver-related diseases. A person who is addicted to alcohol is not dependent on it because it tastes good. People get addicted to alcohol because it gives them a fake and temporary escape from their reality.

Treatment of Alcohol addiction & Alcoholism

Yet, alcohol addiction is not shameful and should not be viewed as so. It is normal for people to rely on wrong and false adaptations when no professional and responsible guidance is provided. We believe that it is not your fault and we believe that together we can help you break free from the hazards of alcohol that threaten your life and the lives of those you care about.

We want to give you the guidance that you need to overcome any challenge that life throws your way. But first, we must alcohol detox your body from its dependency. Having a detox prevents some of the most intense and unpleasant symptoms which can often be a result of withdrawal. Detox can help you become abstinent from drugs and alcohol. After stabilization, the focus of detox shifts to monitoring and supporting various processes within the body; as it rids itself of the drug.

It is important to note that detox is not considered a whole treatment for alcohol or drug addiction. Detox alone might help a person to stop abusing drugs and alcohol in the short term, but without follow-up care, medical, nutritional, and therapeutic work, the risk of relapse into problematic use is high.

BALANCE Luxury Inpatient Alcohol Rehab

At THE BALANCE Luxury Inpatient Alcohol Rehab, our clients benefit from a combination of psychotherapeutic, nutritional, and medical treatment as part of the post alcohol detoxification (detox) treatment. This is known as ‘holistic’ treatment and recognizes that all areas of a person’s life need attention to regain health and well-being. Once you are independent of this drug, we will teach you how to manage the stresses and pressures of life head-on instead of escaping them and dodging them away. Instead of delaying your problems, we will help you tackle them at once and remove them from your life for good so that you can maintain a healthy social, physical, and psychological life.

Symptoms of Alcohol Addiction

You may have an alcohol use disorder and be in need of an alcohol rehab center if you:

  • Drink more, or longer than you plan to.
  • Have tried to cut back or stop more than once and couldn’t.
  • Spend a lot of time drinking, being sick, or hungover.
  • Want alcohol so badly you can’t think of anything else.
  • Have problems with work, school, or family because of your habit (or because you are sick after having alcohol).
  • Keep drinking even though it has caused problems for you or your relationships.
  • Quit or cut back on other activities that were important to you to drink.
  • Have found yourself in situations while drinking or afterward that made you more likely to get hurt.
  • Keep having alcohol even though it made you depressed or anxious, hurt your health, or led to a memory blackout.
  • Have to drink more than you used to for the effect you want.
  • Found that you had withdrawal symptoms when the buzz wore off, like trouble sleeping, shakiness, restlessness, nausea, sweating, a racing heart, a seizure, or seeing, hearing, or feeling things that are not there.
