What is the Treatment for Alcoholism? What is Rehab?

When an individual becomes dependent on alcohol, they need to overcome the physical and psychological components of their addiction in order to achieve long-lasting sobriety. A good Quebec alcohol rehab program is designed to help get them there.

Quebec alcohol rehab programs differ from facility to facility across the province, but most commonly include:

Alcohol Detox - The initial process of treatment where the individual overcomes the physical aspect of alcohol addiction. This is where the individual ceases alcohol consumption and goes through alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Alcohol detox needs to be supervised my medical and addiction professionals to ensure the individual is safe.

Individual Counselling - One on one sessions with an addictions counsellor, psychotherapist or psychiatrist. This helps the individual recognize the root causes of their addiction, speak of concerns regarding their alcohol abuse and learn to develop strategies to overcome self-destructive behaviours.

Group Counselling - These are peer sessions where everyone can talk openly and honestly about their alcoholism with people who will understand and not judge. Strong bonds are usually formed during group counseling, which leads to ongoing support when someone completes their residential alcohol addiction program.

Aftercare Program - Preparing individuals for life after they complete alcohol rehab is crucial. Aftercare programs can be local AA meetings, weekly individual sessions to a sober living arrangement.
