Alcohol abuse treatment differs from alcoholism treatment in that detox is not necessary because a person suffering from alcohol abuse lacks the physical addiction and intense cravings that one suffering from alcoholism would experience.
The first step in alcohol abuse treatment is abstinence. If you have a problem with controlling the amount of alcohol you consume, just stay away from it altogether to eliminate the risk of binge drinking. You must train yourself to live without alcohol. To do this you should avoid people and places that make drinking the norm, such as bars and parties where alcohol will be consumed. Enlist the help and support of your family and friends, and try to establish a new hobby to replace drinking alcohol. Do something that makes you feel good about yourself and about what you're doing, such as volunteer work or a new exercise regiment.
If you're suffering from an addiction, there are addiction recovery programs available that can help you NOW. Addiction can be an overwhelming force in one’s life. It can cause those who suffer from it to lose control, perhaps hurting not just themselves, but the people closest to them as well. If you can feel its power over you, and you know it's time to break this bond, but you’re not sure how to find treatment, call Affordable Rehab of South Beach at (305) 709-0728 .
