Overview of Alcohol Addiction​

The 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) suggests up to seventeen million Americans over the age of eighteen have an alcohol use disorder. Additionally, almost one million youth and teens between ages twelve and seventeen meet the diagnostic criteria listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders for an alcohol use disorder. 

It is essential to remember that alcoholism is not a problem created overnight. It emerges out of long-term alcohol abuse. For many adults, the occasional drink with friends or a glass of wine with dinner is not a cause for concern. However, addiction and alcoholism often soon follow when alcohol consumption becomes uncontrollable. 

Alcohol addiction also referred to as alcoholism or an alcohol use disorder, is a disease that is characterized by the inability to reduce or stop drinking alcohol. Someone who struggles with an addiction to alcohol will continue to seek alcohol and drink regularly despite knowing their drinking leads to harmful consequences. Alcohol addiction is a disease that affects the structure and function of the brain. Depending on the nature and severity of your addiction, some of these changes may be permanent. 

Once someone develops an addiction to alcohol, alcohol is no longer consumed just for pleasure. Someone who struggles with alcohol addiction experiences an overwhelming physical and psychological need to drink. Once an alcohol addiction has developed, the physical cravings for alcohol are often so intense they can be debilitating. At this stage, if you try to reduce or stop drinking, you will experience withdrawal symptoms which can be dangerous if you try to stop drinking without help from a residential alcohol treatment center in Missouri. To avoid the physical and emotional discomfort associated with the early stages of alcohol withdrawal, the addict feels they must drink (almost) constantly, leading to addiction. 

Everyone has the ability to start their recovery from addiction.

Alcohol Addiction

Signs & Symptoms of Alcoholism​​

The terms alcoholic or alcoholism are commonly used when referring to someone struggling with alcohol. However, in mental health and addiction treatment settings, alcohol use disorders are generally classified according to degrees of severity listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders or DSM. Addiction is a disease that affects each person differently. For this reason, the DSM lists eleven diagnostic criteria to help addiction treatment professionals accurately diagnose the presence and severity of an alcohol use disorder. It is unnecessary to have all eleven criteria to have an alcohol use disorder. In most cases, the presence of one to three symptoms indicates a mild alcohol use disorder. Up to five symptoms suggest a moderate disorder and six or more suggest a severe alcohol use disorder. 

The eleven factors used to analyze the presence of an alcohol use disorder address both physical and psychological aspects of alcohol addiction. When someone struggles with an alcohol use disorder or alcoholism, they will likely experience both physical and psychological effects.  

Without addiction treatment help at an alcohol rehab in Missouri, alcoholism can cause various adverse health effects and mental health issues. Identifying the signs of alcoholism early allows you to be able to seek treatment before the symptoms and health effects worsen. Some of the most common signs and symptoms of alcohol abuse include:

  • Impaired short-term memory
  • Frequent mood swings or irritability
  • Noticing a negative impact on your performance at work or school as a result of drinking
  • Isolating yourself from friends or family
  • A decrease in personal hygiene
  • Finding excuses for drinking
  • Drinking alone

Even when symptoms are mild, any signs of an alcohol use disorder should be taken seriously before the addiction gets worse. At Grand Falls Recovery, we are here to help those struggling with addiction to alcohol find the best treatment centers near them.

What We Treat – Alcohol Addiction​

Our Alcohol Treatment Rehab in Missouri​

The process of healing from alcohol addiction will look different from person to person. Someone who struggles with a mild addiction will face far fewer roadblocks and challenges as they begin their journey to sobriety. Conversely, someone with a severe addiction, dual diagnosis, or a chronic relapsing disorder (meaning they have been to treatment before and experienced relapse-maybe more than once) may face a more complex journey. However, no matter what the challenge is, seeking help from a professional alcohol addiction treatment center is the safest and most effective way to get and stay sober. 

Choosing the right type of treatment, the right level of care, and the most effective treatment model for your needs, is a crucial step in producing positive treatment outcomes. Choosing outpatient care when inpatient care would be best or selecting a 30-day program when the severity of your addiction is significant and best addressed with a long-term treatment program may all hinder your ability to successfully heal and put the struggles of alcohol addiction in the past. But how do you know which factors to consider when researching alcohol rehab options? Before you decide on a treatment program, consider the following:

  • The severity of your addiction-how often do you drink? How much do you drink? How long have you been drinking?
  • Do you experience withdrawal symptoms when you are not drinking? 
  • Have you been to rehab before and experienced relapse?
  • Would a gender-specific, veteran-specific, or another type of specialty program best meet your treatment needs?
  • Are there any underlying or diagnosed physical and mental health conditions that must be addressed before or as part of your treatment program?

Although not a comprehensive list, the above can help you begin narrowing down the list of thousands of treatment providers in the nation to those that offer the services and treatment models you need. In addition to the above considerations, many other factors may help you decide the best type of treatment for you. If you are unsure where to start, an alcohol addiction specialist can help you get started.

The most effective treatment outcomes occur when you seek help early. It can be challenging to know when your relationship with alcohol has evolved from the occasional social drink to problematic drinking behavior when you are struggling with addiction. The most significant sign that your drinking is a problem is if you spend time worrying about it or feeling bad as a result of your drinking. If you have ever felt that you should potentially seek treatment for your drinking, there is a good chance that you likely should. When these concerns begin to arise, it is often based on personal concern that you need help to overcome a dependency on alcohol. 

If your loved one struggles with alcohol addiction, reaching out to a residential alcohol treatment center in Missouri is the first step on your journey to recovery. Upon entering our rehab program, our addiction treatment team members will build you an individualized treatment program based on your specific needs. A detox program will likely be the first step when entering treatment for alcohol abuse. During detox, trained medical providers will offer support and guidance to help you manage withdrawal symptoms. After detox ends, you will transition to the therapeutic portion of treatment, where you will work with treatment providers and peers to learn about addiction and develop vital coping skills needed to overcome alcohol addiction once and for all. 

If you, or a loved one, are ready to take the first steps towards lasting sobriety, contact the admissions team at our alcohol rehab in Missouri to learn more about our residential alcohol treatment center.
