Sobriety Delivers Everything Alcohol promised.
Alcoholism, also known as “alcohol dependence,” is a chronic and often progressive disease. Like many diseases, its symptoms include a strong need to drink despite negative consequences such as serious job, relationship, or health problems. And, like many diseases, it has a relatively predictable course and is influenced by both genetic and environmental factors.
Alcoholism commonly includes four symptoms:
- Craving – a strong need, or compulsion, to drink
- Loss of control – the inability to limit drinking on any given occasion
- Physical dependence – withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea, sweating, shakiness and anxiety occur when alcohol use is stopped after a period of heavy drinking
- Tolerance – the need to drink greater amounts of alcohol to get drunk
People who are not alcoholic sometimes don’t understand why an alcoholic can’t just use willpower to stop drinking but alcoholism has little to do with willpower. Alcoholics experience an uncontrollable need for alcohol that overrides their ability to stop drinking. This need can be as strong as the need for food or water.
Because the support of family members is important to the recovery process, our programs also offer family therapy as part of addiction treatment. We include participation in a 12-Step program such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA).
