For an individual suffering from alcoholism, a residential treatment program may be the best option for detoxing, healing, and living an alcohol free life.
Alive Recovery empathizes with those who have a tough coming to terms with their alcohol abuse. They often question if they are consuming too much or try to convince themselves they can easily stop the behavior on their own.
Unfortunately, it’s not that simple.
Symptoms of Alcoholism
Here’s a generic checklist which helps those abusing alcohol determine if they indeed have a problem. This list is also used by their loved ones, who at times, may deny a problem exits even though they instinctively know alcoholism is present.
It includes the following:
- The inability to control the amount of alcohol consumed
- As time moves on, drinking more to get the same affect
- Failed attempts when trying to quit drinking
- Encounter withdrawal symptoms such as sweating, nausea, and anxiety
- Consuming alcohol to the point of passing out
- Drinking alone and/or feeling guilty
- Concealing empty bottles and lying about drinking
Those who abuse alcohol have a difficult time stopping even though negative consequences have emerged such as loss of work, family hardships and legal problems.
