What are the treatments for alcohol addiction?

If you’ve recently received a DUI in New Jersey, your problems may stem beyond legal issues. You might be concerned about seeking treatment for alcohol addiction, which can result in arrests, strained interpersonal relationships, and even health conditions. WebMD explains some of the more common treatment options, which may be able to help you restore your life and well-being.

Managing physical symptoms

If your addiction is particularly severe or has been ongoing for a number of years, detox should be the first step. Detox is the medically assisted process of allowing alcohol to leave your system, which can be dangerous when conducted on your own. Detox can take place in a hospital or rehabilitation center and it can be accompanied by medications intended to soothe symptoms.

Dealing with emotional issues

Many people suffering from substance abuse problems also battle an underlying mental disorder. Behavioral therapy is key in this instance, as alcohol abuse is likely to persist while emotional issues are at play. A therapist or counselor can provide coping tools as well as helping to set goals necessary to achieve a healthy lifestyle.

Support groups are also useful

Spending time with people also going through the same battle is helpful for many people. Support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, are one option which enables you to find common ground with your peers. People in support groups can also share experiences on what and what not to do when faced with alcohol addiction. Many people utilize some combination of support groups, therapy, or even medications aimed at reducing cravings to alcohol.
