Outpatient Alcohol Rehab Can Help You!

Table Of Contents

The simple fact that you are reading this suggests that you or a loved one could benefit from outpatient alcohol rehab, and Discovery Transitions has a program for you right in the heart of the San Fernando Valley. Whether you are stepping down from a residential treatment facility or inpatient hospital program, or just starting your journey to sobriety, Discovery Transitions can help you build a foundation for long-term recovery.

Alcoholism is a progressive disease. Although alcoholics may experience periods of what may seem like control over their drinking, relapse and more severe drinking usually follows, accompanied by a host of problems. Anxiety, depression, and stress are invariably major factors underlying a drinking problem, and yet alcoholics tend to say and do things that exacerbate these factors, even while the alcohol seems to numb them to their effects. This strange and mutually reinforcing cycle always spirals downward, and it often takes an unbelievable amount of suffering before the alcoholic asks for help.

Outpatient Treatment for Alcohol May be the Ideal Solution

When an alcohol problem becomes severe enough that you realize you can’t manage it by yourself, an outpatient alcohol rehab can be the ideal solution, although medical detox may be necessary if physical dependency is severe. If you already realize you can’t moderate or stop altogether, then you are ready for help. Most people with alcohol problems don’t come to this realization without doing a lot of damage on the way—DUIs, job problems, marital troubles, health problems, the list could go on—but it’s not necessary to rack up a pile of external disasters in order to qualify as an alcoholic.

While some problem drinkers generate a path of destruction wherever they go, others are quiet, stay-at-home drinkers. Isolation, boredom, perhaps a feeling of uselessness and self-pity: these are part of the emotional damage that no amount of drinking can fix and any amount of drinking can make worse.

Help is available, no matter what your outer life looks like. Alcoholism is a disease of denial and self-annihilation, and admitting that one has a problem is the first step in moving into a solution.

Outpatient Alcohol Rehab

If you are ready to even talk about the possibility that you need help, a Discovery Transitions outpatient treatment for alcohol counselor will sit down with you for an interview. If you’re not ready, you don’t have to commit, but it’s certainly worth investigating the issue if you are wondering about it.Outpatient Alcohol Addiction

Most people don’t like being told that they can’t control something about themselves, and problem drinkers are no exception. It is in the nature of the disease of alcoholism to rationalize, justify, and explain away what to most people looks like irrational behavior. If in fact you are an alcoholic, the most irrational act of all is taking the first drink, which is the precursor to and cause of all that follows.

The question is: How can I avoid that first drink? If you have tried and failed to control your alcohol consumption, and are willing and able to take responsibility for your recovery by showing up and participating in the treatment process, outpatient alcohol rehab can make a tremendous difference in your life.

  • Going to treatment at Discovery Transitions was one of the best programs I've participated in, they helped me get my life back. They have amazing staff and overall good-natured people. They focus on all aspects of counseling, case management, meetings, different types of therapy, including trauma, one on one counseling. This is coming from someone who has been traumatized and neglected. They helped me get to the root of the problem. Which most times can feel very uncomfortable but they provide groups that you participate in and communicate with other addicts and hear their life stories. They really are an organization of team working to help heal the conflicted minds of us addicts that we faced every day. I would highly recommend this treatment program to anyone suffering from substance abuse or mental health.
