Receive the Best Treatment for Alcohol Abuse at Our Rehab Center

Let Us Help You Onto the Road of Recovery Today

The Best Alcohol Rehab Center

While not strictly speaking a drug – it doesn’t fall under the purview of the National Institute on Drug Abuse – alcohol is one of the most addictive substances on Earth. It can damage the body, mind, and spirit. That’s why it’s difficult to stop or control your drinking: alcoholic is another word for addict. Willow Springs Recovery can help.

Being an alcoholic doesn’t mean you’re weak, immoral, or a bad person. Former U.S. Surgeon General Vivek H. Murthy wrote last year that “addiction is not a character flaw – it is a chronic illness that we must approach with the same skill and compassion with which we approach heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.”

What Is an Alcoholic?

Like other chronic diseases and mental illness, alcoholism may be partly a genetic predisposition, exacerbated by behavior. It can run in families. That’s why some children of alcoholics become alcoholics themselves, and why others avoid alcohol completely lest they succumb. You may be more genetically inclined to keep drinking, to develop a dependency, than someone else exhibiting the exact same behaviors.

Addiction also is a mental illness, and often co-occurs with other forms of mental illness – a comorbidity – that makes the addiction worse, harder to control, and harder to recover from. Your alcoholism might even have begun as an attempt to self-medicate for this comorbid disorder.

Symptoms of Alcoholism

You can be an alcoholic even if you don’t realize it. Some alcoholics are highly functioning, at least at first. People around you might notice before you do.

Behavioral Signs of Alcoholism

Behavioral signs of alcoholism include:

  • You can’t control how much or how often you drink.
  • You need to keep increasing how much you drink to feel the same way.
  • You drink until you’re drunk or pass out.
  • You don’t remember what happened while you were drinking.
  • You drink and drive.
  • Your work and personal relationships suffer because of drinking.
  • You no longer do things you used to enjoy because it interferes with your drinking.
  • Your drinking has caused you legal problems.
  • You try to conceal your drinking.
  • Friends or family notice and express concern about your drinking.

Physical Signs of Alcoholism

Physical signs of alcoholism include:

  • You can’t stop drinking without going through withdrawal: nausea, sweating, shaking, and anxiety.
  • Red nose or cheeks.
  • Mood changes.
  • Loss of coordination and balance.
  • Blurred vision.
  • Slurred speech.
  • Impotence in men.

Why Alcoholics Need Rehab

Alcoholism, like other addictions, changes the chemistry of your brain. Maybe you could have stopped drinking if you had tried earlier, but you didn’t, and you became an alcoholic. If you could quit on your own, you would. While there’s no magic bullet, no medicine, no operation that will cure your addiction, there is hope and help.

What to Expect from Willow Springs Recovery

Willow Springs Recovery is a work-friendly luxury rehab. While rehab is a unique experience that should be tailored for each individual – and Willow Springs Recovery has the staff, resources, and facility to do so – there are some basic elements:

  • Detox. You need to start with a clean slate, so you will be safely weaned off alcohol under medical monitoring. You should never attempt to go cold turkey on your own.
  • Diagnosis. If your alcoholism is comorbid, the staff needs to know so both conditions can be treated.
  • Medications. Sometimes drugs can reduce your craving for alcohol or limit withdrawal’s harmful effects. Only take the drugs that are prescribed and given to you by the staff.
  • Nutrition. Alcoholics, like most addicts, don’t eat well. You will be taught healthy food habits and what to avoid. Sugary treats can trigger alcoholic cravings.
  • Exercise and physical therapy. Alcoholics don’t take care of their bodies either. Exercise is not only healthy but can produce endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals.
  • Meditation. Whether religious or not, reflection on your life, where it went wrong, and what to do next can be helpful to recover from alcoholism.
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Talking with a trained counselor can help discover underlying problems that led to your alcoholism and how to curb it.
  • 12-step or group therapy. Alcoholics Anonymous or some secular alternative can help you remain clean and sober.
  • New life skills or coping behaviors. Staff members will teach you healthier ways to cope than having a drink or six.
  • Rest. Eight hours sleep a night isn’t always realistic, but during rehab it is.

What to Expect after Rehab

Relapses aren’t unlikely after rehab ends, so it doesn’t, not immediately. Willow Springs Recovery, like any quality rehab center or program, offers aftercare, continued monitoring, and therapy on an outpatient basis. A 12-step group or continued group therapy also is recommended. Recovery is a lifelong process. Don’t be in a hurry to go it alone.
