10 Signs of a Drinking Problem 

Lying

When you know your drinking has gotten out of hand you will be forced to lie and cover up your abuse. Alcoholism will take away your trustworthiness.

Alcohol as a Crutch

Alcoholics use alcohol to deal with problems instead of confronting and fixing them. Using alcohol to patch negative feelings and problems is a very slippery slope.

Blackouts

Drinking to the point of blacking out and memory loss is not normal. If you’re regularly drinking yourself into a stupor and can’t remember large spans of time – that’s a red flag.

Unable to Stop

Do you buy a 6 pack, tell yourself you’ll only drink 2, then find yourself heading to the liquor store 3 hours later after you’ve drank the whole thing? A common sign of alcohol addiction is the inability to stop drinking once you begin.

Drinking During Inappropriate Times

A key sign of alcoholism is drinking during inappropriate situations. Do you down an Irish coffee before driving to work? Are you slipping out during your child’s play with a flask? Having to drink despite potential consequences is never a good sign.

Dropping Responsibilities

Have you seen a drop off in motivation and ability to take care of daily obligations? Alcohol abuse quickly drives a wedge between the alcoholic and their responsibilities.

Relationship Problems

An alcoholic has one priority – drinking alcohol. When alcohol is the number one priority all relationships will suffer. Recognizing that alcohol is coming between you and your relationships is a sign that you need help.

Increased Tolerance

You will need more and more booze to achieve the same effects over time. Having to continuously drink more to achieve the desired effects is hallmark symptoms of alcoholism.

Withdrawal Symptoms

Alcoholics can experience withdrawal from a few hours to several days after abstaining. If you are suffering from psychological symptoms like anxiety or depression or physical symptoms like shaky hands or cold sweats you’re going through withdrawal. Withdrawal symptoms mean your body has become chemically dependent on alcohol.

Unable to Quit on Your Own

Most people can ditch alcohol or choose not to drink with no issues, but alcoholics can’t. If you try and fail to cut back or quit alcohol without success you should realize no one gets sober on their own. The good news is Discovery Transitions provides high-quality alcohol addiction treatment to safely and comfortably guide you to a new happy and sober life.

 

Dangers of Alcohol Abuse 

Long-term alcohol abuse has severe physical and psychological consequences with damage going far beyond a stubbed toe while you were staggering drunk. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, heavy alcohol use can disturb, weaken, and shrink brain tissue. Long-term abuse can cause memory loss, confusion, and other impairment mirroring Alzheimer’s disease.

Alcohol throws off your natural balance of electric signals known as neurotransmitters. Though initially, alcohol causes euphoria and a sense of well-being, over time the abnormal ebb and flow will cause severe psychological issues. Long-term alcohol abuse can cause depression, anxiety, severe mood swings, trouble sleeping, and can eat away at personal relationships. Severe psychological symptoms can in turn further affect physical health.

Alcohol starts its damage in the brain but leaks to every other part of the body. Over time alcohol abuse can lead to pancreatitis, liver disease including cirrhosis, malnourishment, hypertension, heart attack, stroke, and death. In other words, alcohol abuse poisons you.

How Alcohol Rehab Works 

Discovery Transitions only utilizes proven methods for a safe and well-studied approach to alcoholism treatment.

While every treatment plan is different, the alcohol treatment program at Discovery Transitions normally involves:

 

Counseling – It’s as important to treat the mind as it is the body. Discovery Transitions uses one-on-one counseling, group therapy, and a host of other methods to address mental health.

Education – Counselors lead lectures and lessons on alcohol addiction and the topics that go with it.

Health and Nutrition – Proper diet and health are increasingly focused on for its ability to aid in alcoholism recovery.

Relapse Prevention – Relapse prevention arms you against future temptations by teaching you boundaries, how to address situations, and daily mental health tasks.

Follow up Services – Recovery is a lifelong process. Discovery provides aftercare and follow-up services for continued support and education for the rest of your sober 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.
