If you or your loved one is struggling with an addiction to alcohol, you are not alone. Alcohol is the most abused substance in America — and in the world. In the United States alone, an estimated 18 million people suffer from a dependence on alcohol, according to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.
Alcohol addiction is a chronic brain disease that causes physical dependence and severe withdrawal symptoms. Those who are addicted to alcohol require professional help to successfully — and safely — quit. Without assistance, especially for those who have been drinking heavily for months or years, stopping suddenly can be extremely dangerous and even life-threatening.
Learn more about alcohol addiction and how you or your loved one can overcome it.
In America, alcohol is not just the most commonly used intoxicant – its abuse represents one of the most pressing public health concerns of our time. An estimated 12% of American adults suffer from alcohol dependence at some point in their life – a number that far eclipses reported usage rates for marijuana, cocaine, and methamphetamine combined. Each year, 75,000 Americans will die as a direct result of alcohol abuse. In addition, one third of all fatal traffic accidents are caused by alcohol.
For decades, society assumed people who struggled with alcohol addiction suffered from weak characters or moral failings. Today, we know alcoholism is a chronic relapsing disorder with complex genetic, biological, psychological, and environmental roots.
Although we do not fully understand why some become addicted to alcohol when others do not, addiction professionals now know certain factors influence a person’s predisposition to alcoholism. Research has shown alcoholism addiction is a genetic disorder.
Those with an addicted family member are 50 percent more likely to become addicted themselves. In addition, when related to an alcoholic, identical twins suffer from alcoholism at the same rate. On the other hand, fraternal twins, those born at the same time but who do not share identical genetic material, do not have the same rate of alcoholism.
If there is a preexisting mental health disorder, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar, PTSD, or ADHD, a person is also more likely to use alcohol as a form of self-medication. This often occurs without the person even realizing it.
Despite these numbers, the prevalence of alcohol addiction remains an open secret in our society. The fact is, alcohol abuse no longer adheres to stereotypes – addicts include stay-at-home moms, young professionals, elderly people, and others who do not fit the conventional image of a problem drinker. For all those who suffer from alcohol addiction, and for the people close to them, help is available. Clarity Way is a full-featured alcohol addiction rehab center catering to anyone who is genuinely interested in leaving alcohol behind.
Alcohol recovery is unlike any other treatment program because of the severity of withdrawal symptoms and the omnipresent temptations outside of rehab. Our luxury alcohol addiction treatment center begins with a medically supervised detox. We will help you feel more relaxed, get adequate rest, eat nutritious and delicious meals, and prepare for therapy.
When therapy begins, we use a holistic approach that addresses all psychological, physical, and spiritual needs. Personalized treatment plans include auditory, visual, and kinesthetic techniques as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Music Therapy, Art Therapy, Psychotherapy, and spiritual therapy. With a minimum of 10-15 individual sessions a week, you will get the personalized attention you need to get your life back.
Alcohol withdrawal symptoms include headaches, agitation, nausea, hallucinations, seizures, and even death. For these reasons, medically-supervised alcohol detox is the first part of alcohol addiction rehab at Clarity Way. A team of compassionate doctors and nurses will provide around-the-clock support as you work your way through the initial withdrawal symptoms safely.
Located on 15 acres in south central Pennsylvania, Clarity Way is a safe, comfortable setting for beginning the recovery process. Our treatment takes a holistic approach that emphasizes building harmony between mental, physical, emotional, and social health. This is especially important with alcohol addiction rehab, as remaining sober frequently involves a significant lifestyle change.
Our luxury rehab center provides comprehensive treatment of addiction in a small, community-oriented environment. During treatment, you will work to uncover the reasons why alcohol became a problem while gaining the tools you need to live a fulfilling life free from alcohol addiction.
Each week, our clients receive a minimum of 10-15 individualized sessions that work on a different area of their overall health. This includes addictions counseling as well as fitness training, Art Therapy, and more. Through these sessions, clients learn ways of expression and stress management that do not involve alcohol.
Far more daunting than detox for most addicts is the thought of making a life for themselves without alcohol. Many people drink to alleviate feelings of social anxiety, stress, and other issues – learning to live without that crutch involves considerable introspection and a strong support system. At Clarity Way, a large part of treatment involves helping clients develop the tools to deal with these issues as they arise.
For times when these tools are not enough, full aftercare support is available for a minimum of one year after treatment. Our dedicated aftercare therapist maintains regular communication with each client and can arrange follow-up therapy on an outpatient basis. Overcoming alcohol addiction is not easy, but with the right support system, it is possible.
