Alcohol Detox and Residential Treatment
It usually starts out with some moderate, social drinking—but over time, alcohol addiction can become a major problem, something that has disastrous consequences for your health, your relationships, your finances, and beyond. Many men in the Huntington Beach area struggle with alcohol addiction, and our message to them is that recovery is attainable. You can begin your journey to addiction recovery today, and the best way to do so is to have an alcohol detox treatment—ridding your body of alcohol and its ill effects. Beach City Detox provides treatment for alcohol abuse to men who struggle with alcohol addiction. We boast an idyllic, beach-front setting, but also a strong clinical focus.
We invite you to learn more about alcohol addiction, withdrawal, detox, and the solutions offered right here at Beach City.
Signs and Symptoms of Alcohol Addiction
There are a number of ways in which alcohol addiction is manifest; it doesn’t impact everyone the same way, but here are some common warning signs to be aware of.
- Drinking to a point that impairs work/school/family responsibilities.
- Drinking and then driving, operating machinery, etc.
- Lying to family members about drinking, or trying to keep it a secret.
- Sustaining accidents or injuries after drinking.
- Memory loss or blackout.
- Needing more and more alcohol to get a “buzz.”
- No longer being able to control the amount of drinking.
- Withdrawal symptoms when no alcohol is consumed—pain, aches, sweatiness, etc.
If you are aware of these warning signs in your own life, or in the life of a loved one, that’s likely a sign that addiction recovery is needed—and the first step is detox.
Alcohol Addiction Withdrawal
Detox is needed for a simple reason: It gets rid of the alcohol in your body and frees you from its effect on your mind. This is a vital step before lasting recovery can be pursued, yet it’s also quite difficult. Withdrawal pain can be severe—so much so that those who are trying to detox run a high risk of relapse, or even of overdose, drinking a higher-than-normal quantity of alcohol just to make those pains subside.
How to Detox from Alcohol
This is why we ultimately recommend a clinical approach to addiction detox—like the one we offer here at Beach City Detox. Our Beach City rehabilitation program provide around-the-clock medical supervision, ensuring that overdoses and relapses don’t happen. What’s more, we can help to make the alcohol detox process as smooth and as comfortable as possible, significantly mitigating those withdrawal symptoms.
The clinical component of our alcohol detox program is a strong one. Though it’s tailored to meet each individual’s needs, it can include group therapy, a 12-step model, a spiritual component, cognitive/behavioral therapy, and more. All of this helps set the stage for the next step in your recovery journey, something we’ll counsel you about. Beach City Detox can put you into contact with the best residential treatment or sober living program in the Huntington Beach area, ensuring a consistent continuum of care for the men who come our way.
