Alcohol Rehab Treatment in Santa Clarita

It may be difficult for you to know if your drinking is problematic, as every individual reacts differently to the effects of alcohol. However, there are shared symptoms that everyone with an addiction to alcohol will experience. These include 

  • Engaging in risk-taking behavior while under the effects of alcohol like driving, fighting, or unprotected sex
  • Continuing to drink alcohol despite negative impacts on health and relationships
  • Interference with work, family, school, or other obligations
  • Requiring more and more alcohol to achieve intoxication
  • Physical withdrawal symptoms when alcohol is not present in the body
  • Hiding your drinking from others
  • Binge drinking

Alcohol addiction progresses slowly over time like other substance abuse disorders, usually as a response to trauma. Families with a history of alcoholism also have a higher risk, if one or both of your parents are heavy drinkers your risk increases. It is not a weakness on your part, or some internal character flaw but your brain’s coping mechanism. Addiction can affect anyone, at any time in their life. No one is immune to the effects of trauma on the body and mind, therefore no one is immune to addiction.

What Happens During Alcohol Rehab treatment?

If you have previously experienced the physical symptoms of alcohol withdrawal, you may be scared or nervous to begin detoxing from alcohol addiction. Our rehab staff includes medical doctors, specialist doctors such as a psychiatrist, nurses, psychologists, and therapists with a minimum of a graduate degree in their field. You will begin by meeting your case manager, who will take a detailed history of your alcohol consumption, and any family history of substance abuse. This allows us to determine if you will need to complete medical detox before entering therapy.

 Your body must be free of the addictive substance to focus on healing, and alcohol withdrawal can be dangerous if not conducted in a supervised, medical setting. Your Sylvan Detox doctor may prescribe medication such as benzodiazepines to ease your withdrawal symptoms, and it is essential to complete the detox process in a facility that has 24/7 medical care as your central nervous system adapts to no longer having alcohol. If you have been drinking heavily for extended periods your risk for potentially dangerous conditions increases significantly. Once you have completed the medical detox portion of your recovery you will begin therapy, using some or all of the evidence based treatments listed below

  • Tremors 
  • Anxiety
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Increased heart rate
  • Sweating
