Alcohol rehab or the alcohol rehab program, generally follows alcohol detox and is a combination or group, individual, educational and family therapy. Most people remain in an alcohol rehab program for several weeks in an attempt to resolve many of the feelings they drank over. While in alcohol rehab, each patient is generally seen by a psychiatrist to rule out or address the possibility of any mental illness. The combination or alcohol addiction and a mental illness is termed dual diagnosis.
For those persons not in need of an alcohol rehab program, such as those who may suffer from alcohol abuse rather than alcohol dependence, outpatient alcohol treatment programs are available. Understand, that not everyone is appropriate for an outpatient alcohol treatment program and looking to take the “easier, softer way”, can result in repeated relapse and a chronic alcoholic condition, called alcoholism. A professional alcohol assessment should be sought before choosing a particular level of an alcohol treatment program.
Although alcohol abuse is basically different from alcoholism, many effects of alcohol abuse are also experienced by alcoholics.
One “yes” answer suggests a possible alcohol problem. If you answered “yes” to more than one question, it is highly likely that a problem exists. If this is the case, we recommend that you meet with someone who specializes in the treatment of alcoholism so you can talk about a professional evaluation or seek out an alcohol rehab program, alcohol detox program for alcohol treatment.
