How Does Alcohol Addiction Work?
Alcohol is the most frequently consumed drug in the world, legal almost everywhere, despite a mind-numbing range of data showing that it is deadly. More than 4% of all deaths, worldwide, are because of alcohol related causes, yet in the U.S.A., many of us feel pressured to drink for social reasons. Ethanol, the primary active ingredient in alcohol, is a depressant with strong psychoactive effects, and extremely addictive. Many people begin overindulging to reduce stress or to feel more comfortable in social settings, but eventually become mentally and physically dependent on the drug. Once that happens, it can be difficult to quit permanently on your own.
Long-Term Effects of Abuse
Over time, alcohol abuse leads to significant ramifications, as intoxicated persons suffer from reduced judgement, lowered attention span, decreased motor skills, and susceptibility to suggestion from others. This can result in legal problems, crime, drunk driving, and even injury.
Alcohol also dramatically damages a drinker’s health, affecting the liver, damaging the gastrointestinal system, and harming nearly every organ in the body. This eventually leads to liver disease, stroke, and nutritional deficiencies that harm the individuals physical and mental health.
The medical staff at Laguna Trails Recovery can offer medically supported detox to ease your loved one through the symptoms of withdrawal. Going through detox is a painful and often traumatic experience, which can be impossible for users suffering from the mental and physical impacts of long-term dependence.
Our rehabilitation program offers a full detox, to help you or your loved one gently withdraw from alcohol under medical supervision. We offer prescription treatment to lower the risk of dangerous withdrawal symptoms and seizures, and follow up with a personalized program intended to treat mental and physical dependence to stabilize the body and help patients to recover at every level.
