As one of the top alcohol treatment centers in Florida and the East Coast, we cultivate a caring environment and individualized treatment programs for those suffering from an alcohol addiction.
Alcohol abuse in this country is extremely widespread, but too often alcohol addiction isn’t taken as seriously as addiction to other substances. More than 15 million Americans suffer from alcohol use disorder, and alcohol is one of the most common preventable causes of death – coming in just after tobacco use and a sedentary lifestyle. But despite the widespread abuse of alcohol, less than 8% of those who suffer from alcohol addiction receive treatment. What these statistics tell us is that not only do we have a problem with alcohol abuse in this country, but that we have a problem with stigma of that abuse as well.
A Caring, Comprehensive Approach
At our drug and alcohol treatment centers in Palm Beach County and Lancaster County, we take a comprehensive approach to the alcohol recovery process that removes the stigma associated with alcohol addiction and helps individuals find a sustainable path to a sober life. While treatment plans are individualized to each patient, the alcohol recovery process starts with detoxification, with qualified professionals on hand to assist patients with the physical and mental effects of withdrawal. During the detoxification process, and throughout the entirety of the program, we use treatment modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy and psychotherapy to address the root causes of alcohol addiction. We also provide wellness practices that include art therapy, music therapy, equine-assisted therapy, culinary therapy, and yoga.
Our inpatient alcohol treatment centers in Florida Pennsylvania, and Connecticut focus on an inpatient experience centered around structure, consistency, and compassion. Each day spent with us follows a predictable schedule, though exact activities may vary from day to day depending on a patient’s unique treatment plan. When not in active therapeutic sessions, patients will have the opportunity to take advantage of our health resort amenities such as massage and supplemental counseling, or to simply relax in our therapeutic setting.
What Is Alcohol Abuse and How Does it Affect Our Bodies?
The first question many commonly asked is a simple one: “Do I have a drinking problem?” Those experiencing alcohol addiction and their loved ones find it easy to discount alcohol use problems since, unlike other substances, alcohol use is socially accepted. Generally, alcohol use becomes a problem when it starts to interfere with an individual’s life, job, goals, and relationships. If the question of whether a problem exists comes up, chances are that it does.
Alcohol abuse can have profound effects on physical and mental health. It can also contribute to the development of a wide range of diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Even alcohol users who don’t consume enough to affect their ability to function well in society, note the negative effects that alcohol has on their bodies and their relationships. Many who abuse alcohol seek treatment at the direct behest of the people who are closest to them.
