In order to fully recover from substance dependency, alcohol rehab is necessary.
Rehab is a term used to describe a range of medical and psychotherapeutic treatments for drug and alcohol dependent people. Rehab may be required for a range of different substances, including alcohol, illegal drugs and prescription medications. Rehab centers are available all over the United States, to help people deal with the physical and psychological problems of drug abuse and avoid the legal, financial and social problems often associated with drug dependency. Drug and alcohol rehabilitation may involve intervention, detox, medical treatment, behavioral therapy, counseling and relapse prevention education.

The term detoxification refers to the removal of toxic substances from the body. The detox period often requires the use of medications and therapy, with a range of benzodiazepines commonly prescribed to reduce alcohol withdrawal symptoms. A number of benzodiazepines are used in alcohol detox, including chlordiazepoxide (Librium), lorazepam (Ativan), diazepam (Valium), and oxazepam (Serax). Xanax can also be used to help patients deal with anxiety and sleep problems that may arise during the withdrawal process. Sympatholytic, carbamazepine, nitrous oxide, sodium oxybate and a range of vitamins can also be helpful during the alcohol withdrawal period. After the initial withdrawal syndrome is over, patients participate in behavioral therapy and relapse prevention training.
Common signs of alcohol abuse include dangerous drinking patterns, continued drinking despite adverse circumstances, using alcohol as a way to de-stress and relax, and uncontrolled behavior due to alcohol use. If you or anyone you know is suffering from these problems, it’s important to seek the services of a doctor at a recognized rehab center. Heavy drinking and binge drinking are a form of alcohol abuse, and while they do not necessarily involve physical dependency, they may be considered a form of alcoholism.
The first sign of alcohol dependence is increasing tolerance, with people often having to drink significantly more to experience the same effects. The second warning sign of dependence is the experience of alcohol withdrawal syndrome, with heavy and continual drinking known to cause a range of withdrawal effects upon the cessation of drinking. Common signs of alcohol dependence can be experienced when a person ceases or dramatically decreases their drinking levels, with some signs including anxiety, jumpiness, shakiness, trembling, sweating, nausea, vomiting and insomnia.
