Dangers of Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse
Alcohol causes many physical illnesses and medical problems and also contributes to psychological problems. Because it is a social norm, many Washington residents begin drinking at an early age, between 12-17 years. According to the Washington State Liquor Board, A person who begins drinking by the age of 15 is four times more likely to develop alcohol dependence than someone who waits until adulthood to use alcohol.
Liver damage is the most widely known physical problem caused by alcohol, including steatosis (fatty liver), alcoholic hepatitis (liver irritation), fibrosis (formation of excessive tissue in the liver), cirrhosis (hardening of the liver). Because the liver is the organ that cleanses poisons from the body, a non-functioning liver can and does often lead to death.
Alcohol can also affect the pancreas, which begins to create poisonous substances if too much alcohol is consumed and can lead to pancreatitis. Other consequences of alcohol use are cancer of the mouth, esophagus, throat, liver and breasts. All alcoholic drinking — even the rare incidents of binge drinking — cripples the immune system and can cause alcoholics to be vulnerable to tuberculosis and pneumonia. Heart damage such as stretching of the heart muscle, irregular heartbeat and stroke are also not unusual medical issues suffered by alcoholics and problem drinkers.
Alcohol is responsible for many damaging side effects on the body and the brain. Even binge drinking has unhealthy results, including:
- Diminished inhibitions
- Motor impairment/loss of motor skills
- Breathing complications
Alcohol can have many adverse effects on the body and other disorders often accompany alcohol abuse disorders. Because alcohol abuse problems are generally compounded by psychological disorders, alcohol rehabilitation detoxification provides treatment programs geared toward addressing all aspects of alcohol use. Alcohol abuse increases the chances of:
- Automotive injuries
- Violent and hazardous behavior
Customized Alcohol Rehab Plans
Each person is unique, and no two people have the very same treatment requirements.
Our alcohol treatment center is both effective and reasonably priced and can be completed in one, two, or three months’ time, depending on the specific circumstances of each client. In most cases, the longer an addict stays in a treatment program, the more effective the treatment is and the more likely he is able to maintain his sobriety goals. During the intake process at Recovery Rehab Services, each and every patient’s individual circumstances are assessed and the most effective and beneficial treatment plan is developed. These custom-designed treatment plans are not only extremely effective but also combine reasonably-priced outpatient accommodations with the highest quality of care found at inpatient treatment programs.
How Hope Addiction Treatment Services Can Help
Depending upon the level and seriousness of the alcohol-dependent individual, detox may also play an important role before entering rehab. Particularly for chronic or severe alcohol abusers, detoxification without medical supervision can be extremely painful, hazardous and in some cases, life-threatening. The physical symptoms of alcohol withdrawal range from moderate to extremely serious and can include:
- Pupils different size
Alcohol detox can be deadly and should never be attempted at home alone.
We offer a safe, supervised, compassionate, and controlled setting to detoxify from alcohol that is supervised by a professional medical staff. Detox must only be used to assist the addict in physically withdrawing from alcohol and should not replace treatment. Treatment or rehab is the only real way to actually achieve recovery.
