What Does Alcohol Rehab Consist Of?

Has your personal and professional life fallen apart due to alcohol addiction? If the answer is yes, it is time to reach out to the professionals at the Legacy Healing Center. Our experienced team works hand in hand with you to design a treatment plan that helps you overcome the hold of addiction.  

One of the numerous questions that our team receives is in connection with what happens during an average day at our treatment facility. Every patient will experience different forms of treatment throughout the day. With a combination of mental, physical, and spiritual treatment, our staff provides you with the tools and guidance you need to overcome your addiction.  

First, Alcohol Detox

An important aspect of recovery that you should never overlook is alcohol detox. When your body has become accustomed to consuming a certain amount of alcohol, it is potentially dangerous to try to stop this habit without being under the care of a trained medical professional.  

Many times, within hours of consuming your last drink, your body will begin to go through a withdrawal phase. There are numerous symptoms that patients may experience during this phase which include nausea, shakiness, and an increase in anxiety.

Unfortunately, it is possible that some withdrawal symptoms can turn deadly. There is an increased possibility that a person that is struggling with detoxing from alcohol may experience a seizure. We strongly recommend that you never attempt to detox on your own. If you are struggling with active addiction when you initially reach out to us, we can arrange for you to go through our detox program so that you can begin your treatment with a clear and sober mind.  

Getting to The Root of Addiction

Determining the cause of your addiction is a critical part of your rehab and recovery. Alcohol addiction can manifest itself in many ways. There are times whether alcoholism is influenced due to traumas and events that happened in your past. For example, if you were abused as a child or if you witnessed your parents or a close family member continuously drinking, there is an increased chance that you may develop your own addiction.  

Sadly, there is an increased chance of first responders falling into addictive habits. Although first responders are extremely selfless in their actions of protecting and saving the people around them, they also struggle with things that they have seen or the people that they were unable to help. Taking a sip of alcohol at night to help that person relax can start off innocently enough, however, if that habit continues to grow it could result in a serious addiction.
