Alcoholism


What is alcoholism?

Alcoholism can best be described as an addiction to heavily consumping alcohol. Having alcoholism means you have the most severe addiction to alcoholic beverages. Alcholism is characterized by the loss of control when consuming alcohol and neglecting all decisions. Drinking large amounts of alchol every day and feeling guilty about it may be the first sign of alcoholism. Although the legal drinking age in the United State is 21, many people under the age of 20 suffer from alcoholism.

What are the treatment options for alcoholism?

Treatment for alcoholism may include many different types of recovery options. Some may work better than others and they may be combined to have the best possible effect. Here are some treatment options:

Detox: Many people who have severe alcoholism must go through detox in order to avoid withdrawl symptoms and completely clear the body of any alcohol. Detox can take place in a hospital or treatment facility setting.

Talk thrapy: Psychotherapy can be very beneficial for those in recovery from an alcohol addiction. This can get to the root of the problem for those who have been dependent on alcohol for many years. During therapy sessions, patients can express their feelings of guilt, worries and emotional issues.

Medication: Although medication is not the first choice of most doctors and healthcare professional, it is sometimes used in very severe cases. An example of a medication for alcoholism is Natrexone.
