San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) November 07, 2013
A San Antonio alcohol rehab is now available in San Antonio and surrounding cities for people seeking relief from alcohol addiction at Alcohol Addiction Treatment Centers. Those cities include Universal City, Boerne, Harlandale, Floresville, Cotulla, and New Braunfels.
Alcohol detoxification is a process by which a heavy drinker's system is brought back to normal after being used to having alcohol in the body on a continual basis. Serious alcohol addiction results in a decrease in production of GABA, a reuptake inhibitor, because alcohol acts to replace it. Precipitous withdrawal from long-term alcohol addiction without medical management can cause severe health problems and can be fatal. Alcohol detox is not a treatment for alcoholism. After detoxification, other treatments must be undergone to deal with the underlying addiction that caused the alcohol use.
Alcoholism touches an individual’s life in four main areas – mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally. Alcohol rehab makes sure people get the help they want and need in order to change their lives. Instead of living by the bottle, alcohol rehab and effective treatment teaches adults and adolescents different life skills … no matter how old or young he or she might be. Alcohol addiction can affect anyone, no matter of their age, race, or economic background.
The physical detoxification process is usually a first step in the alcohol rehabilitation process. Ridding the body of alcohol’s chemical substances takes a number of days, and is supervised by medical staff on board.
Alcoholism touches family members, too, and leaves them with more questions than answers. This disease leaves families broken, and oftentimes the client’s support system does not know where to turn for help. On occasion, these families will get support for their issues while the client is getting the help he or she needs today.
Alcohol rehab provides a safe sanctuary away from outside influences. It also challenges adults and adolescents to look at their behaviors and actions, the consequences and wreckage from the constant need for beer, wine, scotch, bourbon or other hard liquor in their lives.
