When one crosses the line from social drinking into alcoholism, the progression of the disease and what comes with it are pretty predictable. Support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous have given little respite. Over and over, in spite of the best intentions, the alcoholic finds himself again with glass in hand, then later, head in hands over the inability to control his drinking. With both the sufferer and his family at their wits end, there may be little choice but to go to an alcohol rehab center, where he can detox safely and learn about the disease of alcoholism.
What happens to alcoholics and why has been the source of many books, programs, and theories – all trying to explain that inability to put down the very thing that has been the source of much misery. Those who haven’ t walked the path can’t comprehend why the alcoholic would continue on in spite of such dire consequences. And what if your doctor has told you you shouldn’t quit on your own lest you get convulsions or delirium tremens (DTs)? Alcohol withdrawal, in the late stages of the disease, can be fatal if not done under medical supervision. Besides the added benefit of being housed so that the acquiring of alcohol is impossible, once an alcoholic has some knowledge about how the disease manifests and what can be done to ward off relapse, he may find some hope at last.
Additionally, today many alcoholic rehabilitation centers offer relapse prevention programs which invite clients back for an additional period of time if they relapse after completing their comprehensive alcohol rehabilitation program.With liquor stores on every corner, alcohol rehab provides a place to get that initial push one may have not been able to give himself. Upon release, the alcoholic is ready to face his life anew – with an understanding of what those people in meetings were talking about after all! He now knows what he’s dealing with and has been given tools to combat the obsession that has held him captive for years.
