One of the best things that you can do during alcohol addiction treatment is to engage in physical exercise. While in the detoxification phase of treatment, exercise can alleviate problems with insomnia and cravings. In a rehabilitation facility, counselors encourage working out, and there are rooms filled with treadmills, elliptical machines and stationary bicycles. The counselors at a rehabilitation facility also arrange activities such as ball games.
The best type of treatment for alcohol addiction is in a residential facility where you will undergo detoxification for several days. This time is difficult because you will mentally and physically crave alcohol, but medical staff can provide medications and therapies to reduce difficult symptoms of nausea and headaches. After detoxification, you enter residential care immediately to participate in one-on-one and group counseling.
We do not tell anyone about your stay in an alcohol rehabilitation facility unless you provide written consent. While in alcohol treatment, you will meet other participants, and we ask everyone to keep identities private.
Our intake counselors are available to answer your questions at any time of the day or night because we want you to feel comfortable about entering a rehabilitation program. You are welcome to ask questions with a telephone call or email.
Our employees will bill your insurance company for treatment, and you are responsible for co-payments. There are also financing options available for clients needing to pay later for their treatments. We also have access to scholarships for our clients, and these require filling out an application form.
After your 30 to 90 day alcohol addiction treatment program ends, we suggest transitioning immediately to an aftercare program. When our patients need to return home, we find a local outpatient facility where there are professional counselors and daily 12-step meetings. For our clients who want a more structured aftercare program, we find a placement in a sober house environment.
There is no reason to delay seeking treatment for an alcohol addiction because our rehabilitation facilities are ready to accept clients today. If your alcohol addiction is destroying your personal life and causing problems at work, then take action now to make a change.
