Choosing the Right Alcohol Addiction Rehab Program

If you have suffered negative consequences from your drinking habits and find yourself, still, compulsively drinking alcohol, an alcohol addiction rehab program can help. There are many types of programs available and depending on your levels of use, the amount of time you have been consuming alcohol, and the number of times you have tried to quit on your own, you may have trouble choosing the right alcohol addiction rehab program.

12-Step Programs

12-step programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous are support groups where alcoholics meet on a regular basis to share their experiences, encourage sobriety, and provide peer support from others who have had similar experiences. These programs work well for individuals who have undergone a formal alcohol rehab treatment and for those who have recognized their addiction and seek to maintain sobriety.

Outpatient Programs

Many people benefit from both a rehab program and support groups.

This is a good start for alcohol addicts who have little history of relapse. In outpatient rehab the addict can safely detox and professionals can assist with withdrawal symptoms and provide the necessary care the addict needs while recovering. After detox, a professional evaluation of the addict can determine the next steps and how the program can be specifically designed to address their needs. Outpatient programs involve therapy and counseling sessions that accommodate individuals who are unable to take time away from family, work or other commitments by living in a facility 24 hours a day. They are less expensive than an inpatient program and other requirements are more relaxed.

Inpatient Programs

These programs require the addict to live in the facility 24 hours a day, under strict monitoring of their progress. The duration and other requirements vary by facility and depending on the amenities available, so does the cost. Alcohol addiction rehab programs in these environments are preferable for someone who has a history of relapse, co-existing addictions, dual diagnosis, or chronic alcoholism from which the addict may suffer extreme and long lasting alcohol withdrawals. The death rate from DTs, characterized by confusion, rapid heartbeat, and fever, is estimated from 1% to 5% according to studies by the National Institute of Health on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. Alcohol syndrome can last days, weeks, or months, and without proper medical assistance, the addict risks, seizures, coma, even death.
