Risks of Alcoholism and Alcohol Addiction
Alcohol addiction can cause many physical illnesses and health complications, and also plays a complicated role in mental problems. Probably the best known effect of drug and alcohol addiction is liver illness, including steatosis (fatty liver), alcoholic hepatitis (liver inflammation), fibrosis (formation of excessive tissue within the liver), and cirrhosis (hardening). The liver processes and cleanses toxins from the body, so a non-working liver can result in a slow and painful death. Other organs are also at risk, such as the pancreas, which begins to make poisonous substances when alcohol is consumed, and can lead to pancreatitis. Many sorts of cancer may result from alcohol use, such as cancer of the mouth, esophagus, throat, liver, and breast. Furthermore, drinking – even binge drinking on rare occasions – cripples the immune system and causes users to be vulnerable to sicknesses like pneumonia and tuberculosis. Other common health conditions among alcoholics and alcohol abusers are heart damage, stretching of the heart muscle, irregular heartbeat, and stroke.
Alcohol is responsible for a great number of negative side effects on the body and the brain. Even occasional binge drinking has side effects, including:
- lowered inhibitions
- motor impairment
- breathing problems
People that habitually consume too much alcohol regularly suffer from alcohol use disorders, but their mind and body are affected as well. Because alcohol use disorders are often accompanied by other mental issues, we provide treatment services intervention aimed at addressing all aspects of alcohol use. Misuse of alcohol also increases the danger of:
- vehicle accidents
- violent and dangerous habits
Customized Rehabilitation Programs
A customized therapy plan is probably the best way to treat drug and alcohol addiction because everyone is an individual with different needs. Rehabilitation programs at our treatment facility are both affordable and effective, and can also be completed in twenty-eight days, sixty days, or ninety days, depending on the individual circumstances of each person. It is occasionally possible to achieve long term sobriety in a twenty-eight day program, but typically the longer treatment lasts the better the chances that the addict is able to maintain their sobriety goals. At our facility, each and every client’s individual situation is assessed during the intake process, and the most efficient and most effective treatment plans are developed. They provide services with affordable outpatient costs, but with the same 24-hour monitored care that would be expected in top quality inpatient facilities.
How We Can Help
Depending on the seriousness of the alcohol use disorder, detox may be vital before rehabilitation can begin. Particularly for severe alcoholics, detoxification without medical assistance can be unhealthy, and even fatal. Side effects of withdrawing from alcohol often range from moderate to very dangerous, and can include:
- rapid heart rate
- dilated pupils
- black outs
We offer a safe, monitored setting to detox from alcohol, and is supervised by medical personnel. Detox must only be utilized to help the addict withdraw from their substance of abuse, and must not be mistaken for treatment. Treatment, or rehabilitation, is the only real way to truly experience recovery. If you live in the Cary, NC area and are ready for treatment, please contact us.
