What Is Alcohol Abuse and Addiction?
Alcohol abuse is defined as the habitual misuse of alcohol, or drinking to the point where it interferes with daily activities. At this stage, there is no physical dependency on alcohol, but it is still considered a serious drinking problem.
Alcohol addiction, or alcoholism, occurs when an individual can no longer control their use of alcohol and compulsively abuses alcohol, despite its negative effects on their life.
Alcohol abuse and addiction are very common in the U.S. The CDC reports that alcohol abuse is related to more than 88,000 deaths in the United States every year.
Unfortunately, only 20 percent of people who struggle with alcohol abuse actually seek help. Because a certain amount of drinking is considered socially acceptable, it can be difficult for many people to draw the distinction between social drinking and alcohol abuse. Many people are able to function at a high level in their careers and personal life despite alcohol abuse, making it easy to deny that a problem exists.
Alcohol Addiction Treatment at Altignis Health
No single form of alcohol addiction treatment is right for everyone. Some patients require a highly structured treatment program, while others do well with a more flexible outpatient program that allows them to maintain their regular work or school schedules.
When you decide to enter an alcohol addiction program at Altignis Health, you will begin with an initial assessment that will allow our treatment specialists to evaluate and determine the best treatment protocol for your needs.
Intensive Outpatient Treatment
Intensive outpatient treatment programs at Altignis provide a high level of care, but are more flexible in order to accommodate patients’ busy lifestyles. Patients can still expect to participate in therapeutic services multiple hours a day, several days a week. Some patients may transition to outpatient treatment following the successful completion of an inpatient or partial hospitalization program.
“Patients are able to maintain their normal work or school schedules while still benefiting from the same high-quality recovery programs and services.”
