It was recently reported that over 23 percent of treatment center admissions relate directly to alcohol, which is a pretty alarming statistic considering the skyrocketing rates of heroin and prescription painkiller abuse. There is a common misconception that alcoholics are older in age and predominantly male. The truth of the matter is that alcoholism can affect people of any age, race, gender or demographic. No one is immune. If you possess the traits that go hand-in-hand with predisposition, any amount of alcohol abuse can put you at risk. If you’re still unsure as to whether or not alcohol addiction treatment is for you, give us a call.
Treatment for Alcohol Addiction
When it comes to treatment for alcoholism, medical detox is always a necessary first step. At Immersion Recovery Center we make sure that each of our alcohol-addicted patients starts with an in-depth detox, where withdrawal symptoms will be closely monitored. Next, patients will enter into our inpatient alcohol treatment center, where they’ll experience a wide variety of therapeutic modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Experiential Therapy, group therapy and daily individual sessions. In some cases, medication assisted therapy might be necessary (if the symptoms of withdrawal or post-acute withdrawal pose a threat to the effectiveness of treatment). Our team of professional therapists and physicians work together to ensure that each individual is getting the in-depth and highly individualized care that they deserve.
