How can I get treatment for alcohol addiction?

Fight Your DUI Charges. Contact Us Today.

If you’ve been charged with a DUI in Nebraska, your problems most likely extend beyond the legal. Alcohol addiction has many different components, on of which is run-ins with the law. People may also experience problems with interpersonal relationships, as well as issues with work life. Getting treatment is crucial in this case, and Very Well Mind explains some of your options.

Detoxification

It can be tough to quit drinking after years of alcohol abuse. This has much to do with alcohol withdrawal, which may have significant health effects depending on the person. Medically-assisted detox is recommended in this case, as it allows a person to detox in a safe and monitored environment. Detox can take place at a medical facility or it may occur within a rehab setting.

Treatment facilities

Once detoxed, a person will usually be placed in a rehab or treatment facility. These facilities offer both long and short-term care depending on the needs of the person in recovery. Along with addressing alcohol addiction, treatment also entails counseling and the introduction of coping mechanisms, which aim to provide you with the tools you need to live without drinking.  

Support groups

Socialization can also be good for people struggling with alcohol addiction. Support groups are key in this case and are quite effective when paired with other treatment options. Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is the most famous group. Comprised of people in different stages of recovery, AA offer people a chance to speak their mind in a supportive, welcoming environment. Attendees can also share tips on how to cope without using alcohol, or even offer support when a person is in danger of relapsing.
