Alcoholism has been around for centuries. Even with the rise of specialized alcohol treatment facilities, this disease remains a large issue to be faced in our society. The National Center for Biotechnology Information estimates that one in six Americans has a problem with drinking.
While genetics are proven to play a part in alcoholism rate, it can still affect anyone at any time. If someone in your family has or had a drinking problem, the risk for your own development of a drinking problem is increased, but you can easily find yourself with an alcohol problem regardless of family history of problem drinking.
Environmental factors are also a factor in the development of alcoholism. If you grew up in a home where regular or heavy drinking was considered “normal”, then you could develop a drinking problem later in life.
On the other side of the coin, other people who grew up in an alcohol-free home later suffer from alcoholism. Really, the “nature or nurture” argument about alcohol addiction, while interesting, is not as important as getting help. Merito is here to provide that help.
Our men’s rehab center offers both inpatient and outpatient programs for the treatment of alcoholism.
The first step in getting help is admitting you could have a problem.
A few questions you might want to ask yourself are:
- Has family or friends ever commented on your drinking habits?
If you said yes to two or more of these questions, you could have a serious problem with alcohol.
We’ll start with an assessment about your drinking habits, your goals in recovery, and your medical and psychological needs. This assessment will also help decide which of our varied alcohol treatment programs can best fit your needs.
Our men’s addiction treatment programs are completely confidential.
Treatment is essential for healing – and the first step to treatment is detox.
Side Effects of Withdrawal Symptoms
If you have been fighting addiction to alcohol for a long time, please be aware; alcohol withdrawal is considered a medical emergency. This is why you need medically supervised alcohol detox facilities to help you get through it. Merito’s staff will keep watch and provide assistance 24/7 during this difficult process.
Our medically trained staff is caring and compassionate. We will make sure you are as comfortable as possible throughout this time.
