What are the Major Alcohol Abuse and Addiction Treatment Methods?

Alcohol dependence can strike anyone from different cultures, socio-economic backgrounds, all ages and both men and women.  Therefore, not all alcohol rehab treatment programs are right for everyone.  Actually, when people find the right addiction treatment program they have a higher chance of achieving sobriety. 

What are the Major Alcohol Abuse Treatment Methods?

There are several different treatment approaches that an individual can choose when looking for an alcohol abuse rehab. Each method may be beneficial according to the individual's medical needs or their different lifestyles.

  • Residential Alcohol Abuse Addiction Treatment.  In many cases of alcohol abuse, the most effective way to combat alcohol addiction is to remove the alcoholic from their home and place them in a safe neutral environment where they can focus exclusively on their recovery under care 24/7 by addiction counsellors and medical professionals that specialize in addiction treatment therapy. Residential alcohol rehab treatment programs are a safe place for an individual to become fully engrossed in the recovery process without outside distractions and temptations.
  • Outpatient Alcohol Abuse Addiction Treatment.  Another viable treatment method is outpatient addiction treatment for those who have obligations to fulfill such as family responsibilities, work and/ or school commitments.  Outpatient care usually has individuals attend treatment during the day and are able to return home or to a sober living arrangement in the evening. This choice is exceptional for many because they are close to their support system while trying to achieve sobriety.
  • Holistic Alcohol Abuse Addiction Treatment. Alcohol addiction treatment programs that incorporate a holistic approach to their main program are growing rapidly and becoming more popular. Holistic methods that are used in alcohol rehabs are usually meditation, yoga, exercise, a nutritional program, massage therapy, acupuncture and spirituality. Holistic addiction treatment methods are a wonderful addition to one's treatment repertoire. Moreover, it provides a comprehensive addiction treatment program that specifically can specifically treats the individual, not just their addiction.
  • Dual Diagnosis Alcohol Abuse Addiction Treatment. In many cases of alcohol addiction the individual suffers from a concurrent disorder.  These are referred to as dual diagnosis. They suffer from either depression, ADHD, bi-polar or schizophrenia and are at a greater risk of committing suicide. They can also be harder to treat because each condition may complicate the other and many of the symptoms have a propensity to overlap one another and make it difficult to identify. This is why it is important that there is integrated care from highly qualified addiction treatment counsellors and psychiatric professionals who work together and can assess and treat the client's condition.
