Alcoholism is prevalent in the United States and affects millions of Americans. You may have heard of the concept of a “functional alcoholic,” but if you’re getting through the day, you are simply surviving and not thriving. An alcohol addiction treatment program may be able to help you or your loved one take their life back from alcohol use. Fresh Start Recovery Center in Maryland has an inpatient alcohol rehab facility with a team of dedicated medical professionals ready to help. We encourage you to reach out to Fresh Start at 833.625.0398 to speak with a trained representative who can guide you on the best options for you.
Signs Your Loved One Has an Alcohol Addiction
It can be difficult for someone to assess or admit when their drinking has shifted from normal to problematic use. Family, friends, and coworkers who can provide an outside perspective can tell the signs that something is wrong.
A person with a full-blown alcohol addiction may struggle to complete ordinary daily tasks that were previously not an issue. Often, those with addiction start to retreat from their everyday responsibilities and neglect hobbies that once gave them joy. Sometimes those with addictions will begin engaging in risky behaviors. They may also struggle to maintain positive relationships with friends and loved ones.
Signs your loved one may be struggling with an alcohol addiction can include:
- Alcohol consumption is constantly on their mind.
- They drink regardless of the consequences
- They’ve not been able to reduce their consumption of alcohol.
- They have withdrawal symptoms and cravings.
If your loved one is battling these symptoms, it may be time to seek treatment at an inpatient rehab program.
When Is an Inpatient Rehab Program a Good Option?
Clients often question when it is appropriate to consider a residential or inpatient treatment program instead of an outpatient treatment (OT) program. Inpatient programs are designed for those who can benefit the most from 24/7 medical supervision and a full-time treatment program.
With an outpatient program, clients return home at the end of the day. This is not necessarily the best or safest option for clients with moderate to severe alcohol addiction. Clients who need to detox can take advantage of round-the-clock medical supervision as they go through the difficult initial withdrawal process that accompanies detox.
Other benefits of an inpatient rehab program include the distance from the pressures of work and home environments that can trigger clients to relapse. During the time spent in treatment, clients learn coping methods that they can use in real-world situations. In recovery, your loved one can learn how to rewire their brain to avoid negative thought patterns that previously led to substance abuse and related problematic behaviors.
