The staff at Drug Rehab Center Annapolis work with them on ways to say no but still maintain a social life.
Annapolis, MD (PRWEB) September 27, 2013
Drug Rehab Center Annapolis offers innovative new programs designed to help alcoholics continue to say no to alcohol in social drinking situations.
Alcohol often has a harmless reputation when compared to other addictive drugs. Because alcohol is legal, it appears in many situations that are unavoidable even to people who have completed a rehab program. Alcohol is served in most restaurants and available for purchase in almost every grocery, gas, and convenience store in the country. This is why Drug Rehab Center Annapolis has structured programs to include coping mechanisms patients can use in their outside lives.
The glorification of alcohol in popular culture has created an ambivalent attitude regarding alcohol abuse. Joe C., an alcohol addiction and recovery specialist at Drug Rehab Center Annapolis, explains, “Some people do not even realize they abuse alcohol, because they think their drinking habits are normal. Truthfully, if you consume alcohol regularly and use it to regulate your physical or psychological feelings, you are abusing alcohol.”
Alcohol can destroy the health and lives of people who develop a dependency upon it, which is why Drug Rehab Center Annapolis has begun to emphasize alcohol abuse and awareness with their new, comprehensive treatment programs. In addition to traditional treatment methods including therapy and counseling sessions, Drug Rehab Center Annapolis incorporates activities like yoga, exercise, meditation, art, and music. These types of activities not only aid in the sobriety process, but they provide patients with an opportunity to develop new hobbies and interests that do not involve consuming alcohol.
Joe describes why alcoholics can have a harder time maintaining sobriety than other recovering addicts. “Alcohol consumption is socially acceptable. You find cocktails at family gatherings, dinners with friends, and even work parties,” Joe explains. “Someone who is trying to avoid alcohol is going to have a hard time. This is why the staff at Drug Rehab Center Annapolis work with them on ways to say no but still maintain a social life.”
