Palm Springs, Fla. (PRWEB) December 8, 2009
Recent headlines and news programs have brought much-needed attention to the plight of women suffering from "Hidden Alcoholism". Hidden Alcoholism refers to a condition wherein a woman suffers in silence with her addiction - hiding her drinking from those around her even as she multi-tasks through the many responsibilities that comprise her daily routine.
To date, hidden alcoholism has cost countless women their relationships, their families, and in the most extreme cases, their lives. As women become stretched thinner as a result of family finances and other responsibilities, the number of reported hidden alcoholics continues to grow.
One of the nation's leading addiction treatment centers for women, The Orchid Recovery Center has made significant strides in the treatment of Hidden Alcoholism - giving these women a treatment option that speaks directly to their needs. Through gender-specific counseling and residential care, The Orchid has been able to take women who believe they are suffering alone - and have no one to turn to for assistance - and give them a "safe place" to receive progressive therapy and support from other women in recovery.
More About Treating Hidden Alcoholism at The Orchid
Hidden Alcoholism is an insidious condition, as the woman will hide her addiction from those closest to her including her spouse, family and friends. As time passes, she becomes an expert at keeping her condition a secret from those around her - often at the risk of her family's safety. This secrecy leads to isolation - which can cause the addiction to quickly worsen. The Orchid Recovery Center treats Hidden Alcoholism by giving women a place where they can speak openly and honestly about their fears and concerns - all while surrounded by other like-minded women who are experiencing similar circumstances.
The expert treatment staff at The Orchid has studied Hidden Alcoholism comprehensively and, using the groundbreaking work of addiction treatment professional Dr. Karen Dodge, has developed a number of effective therapeutic modalities designed to address the condition.
