Addiction Treatment for Alcoholism
Alcoholism can be the most insidious condition. It can start with underage drinking, at teen parties or on dirt roads in pickup trucks. It can grow with barroom drinking or a six-pack during sporting events. It can develop even further with excessive consumption on rare occasions and then those occasions are not so rare.
This little habit of drinking a little too much, a little too often can keep growing until it becomes alcoholism. Until the drinker can't control the habit -- the habit controls him or her. Until the half full glass has to be an empty glass. And the bottle gets emptied every time. And until this habit is more important than family, success, friends and future.
That's when the restoration of one's life requires addiction treatment for alcoholism. It can all come back -- the family, the success, the friends -- when addiction treatment is effective. Addiction treatment for alcoholism must put the alcoholic back in the driver's seat, sober, knowing how to make alcohol-free decisions, and having his (or her) self-esteem and integrity back in full force.
One of the obstacles in the way of successful rehab is just getting the person to agree that they need help. One of the defining characteristics of alcoholism is the denial of the condition. Some alcoholics do hit the realization that they can't go on this way any longer but far more often, there is a refusal to look at the situation.
The family of an alcoholic knows that the person's recovery must include acceptance of responsibility for the condition of alcoholism -- another thing that is often denied by the alcoholic. It's the fault of ex-wives, of bad bosses, or the economy.
The Narconon drug and alcohol rehabilitation program takes on each of these points of denial in the long-term rehabilitation program that has been helping alcoholics recover since 1966. The components of the addiction treatment for alcoholism program effectively walk the recovering alcoholic through the counseling and life skills training they need, with complete application of the new life skills to the situation the alcoholic finds herself in. Are there relationships that need mending? Is there damage to individuals or groups that needs to be addressed? Without practical steps to relieve the guilt a person suffers after they have spent some time addicted, it is hard to leave the effects of addiction behind fully.
The Narconon addiction treatment program for alcoholism and drug abuse wraps up with instruction on and application of a common sense moral code that can act as an accurate compass when meeting life's challenges.
Alcoholism can be overcome, at Narconon centers located around the world. Seven out of ten graduates of this program go on to live sober lives meaning that this program offers alcohol addicts an excellent shot at lasting sobriety.
