Alcohol addiction is a complicated disease. Because it’s a legal substance for those over the age of 21, many individuals don’t view alcohol as a problem. Unfortunately, easy access and acceptance in many social situations can make it too easy for someone to develop an addiction to alcohol. Moving past alcohol abuse on your own isn’t always possible. Fortunately, The Hills Treatment Center offers alcohol detox services that make escaping the grips of addiction possible. Learn more about alcohol abuse and detox below.

About Alcohol Addiction and Abuse

doctor prescribes alcohol detox for her patientAlcohol abuse refers to an unhealthy use of alcohol. This can include drinking heavily on a daily basis or not being able to stop drinking. This dangerous habit can lead to many problems within your life, including poor work performance, drunk driving, relationship problems and depression. Essentially, alcohol takes over your life. It can cause you to lose your job or face legal problems.

Additionally, it can turn into alcohol dependency or addiction quickly. This addiction is a physical and mental need to consume alcoholic beverages. It’s not a character flaw or something that’s bad about your personality. It’s a legitimate health issue. You may be able to recognize alcoholism through a variety of signs, including:

  • Feeling unable to control the amount you drink or can’t stop drinking.
  • Building a tolerance that requires you to drink more to get drunk.
  • Experiencing symptoms of alcohol withdrawal like tremors, anxiety or nervousness when you don’t drink.
  • Spending most of your free time around alcohol or activities related to it.
  • Inability to quit on your own.
  • Relationship problems.

Alcoholism isn’t your fault. It’s a disease that requires professional treatment, including alcohol detox.
