Alcohol Addiction is all-consuming, affecting every area of life and bringing chaos and discord to relationships. Admitting you have a problem is an important brave first step of addiction treatment that can improve your life long term.
At Jewel City Treatment Center, we are committed to seeing our patients through their entire substance abuse journey, from admitting you need help to aftercare. Substance use disorder does not need to be a lifelong struggle, and help is available to those ready to change their lives for the better.
Signs of Alcohol Addiction
Someone with an alcohol addiction may not realize the discord their addiction is bringing to those around them. It can be difficult to pinpoint signs of an alcohol addiction, but there are some common warnings to look out for. Examples include:
- Feeling powerless to the control alcohol has on your life
- Drinking constantly throughout the day
- Declining to engage in social activities to drink privately
- Using alcohol in high-risk situations, such as driving or swimming
- Developing a high tolerance for alcohol
- Facing problems at home, work, or school due to drinking
If you or someone you love is experiencing a combination of any of the above signs of addiction, it may be time to get help. Our addiction treatment services are designed to meet every client’s individual needs to ensure a successful recovery.
The Detox Process
Our outpatient detox is the first step for most individuals undergoing drug or alcohol treatment. Our program is unique because we allow you to detox from the comfort of your own home, with medical staff and addiction specialists nearby to ensure your safety and comfort during this process. During detoxification, individuals completely stop using substances, and the body adjusts after a prolonged period of drug use. After regularly using drugs, the brain comes to expect these substances, and stopping drug use altogether could trigger cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Since these symptoms can be painful, and even life threatening, it is crucial to have medical oversight during the detox process.
Withdrawal symptoms are often the most uncomfortable part of substance use disorder recovery. There can be painful physical symptoms such as insomnia, muscle aches and flu-like symptoms, but the psychological symptoms are equally as serious. Anxiety, depression, and agitation are common withdrawal symptoms that can have consequences for one’s mental health. Our team of medical and mental health professionals at your side during this process is crucial for laying a foundation of long term sobriety and recovery.
JC Treatment Center is a full-scale outpatient rehab center. We provide a variety of outpatient addiction treatment programs which provide an excellent fit for individuals who want to spend time at a rehab facility but cannot commit to a full break from family, work, or school, but are committed to the emotional and mental health work needed to fully recover.
The science behind addiction treatment, mental health, and alcoholism changes regularly, and we are constantly updating our best practices to provide the most relevant outpatient care to our patients. While our practices are always evolving, our commitment to providing a safe, comfortable, and effective alcohol and drug rehab program is at the cornerstone of everything we do.
Mental health treatment is crucial to alcohol and drug addiction recovery. Dual-diagnosis treatment is treating mental health issues and disorders in conjunction with addiction treatment. Our mental health services include individual therapy, group therapy, and family therapy, all designed to work together to fully heal our patients.
We also encourage our patients to practice a healthy lifestyle of physical fitness and self-care, designed to contribute to a healthy mental state. Addiction and mental illness are closely linked, and our dual-diagnosis treatment practices deliver comprehensive care to heal the whole person.
At Jewel City Treatment Center, we offer relapse prevention services to aid in recovery. While it is important to overcome current substance abuse challenges, our rehab facility is committed to helping our patients experience long-term success.
We encourage our patients to practice self care, attend support groups, engage in relaxation techniques such as meditation, as well as implement physical exercise to stay focused on sobriety with the benefit of additional accountability.
Relapse and further substance abuse prevention are core practices of our programming, which is why we offer aftercare services to ensure individuals stay sober, even when formal treatment has ended.These services provide support groups to help clients make connections with each other and help each other with lifestyle changes and coping mechanisms.
