Maple Grove Alcohol and Drug Rehab Is the Best Choice for Lasting Recovery
The Definition of Alcohol Abuse
Alcoholism, alcohol addiction and alcohol dependence are basically the same type of alcohol problem. Alcohol abuse, however, is different than these three. Alcohol abuse is when someone drinks too much alcohol at a given time, such as in a social setting. This individual is not necessarily an alcoholic or addicted to alcohol. While not as detrimental as alcoholism, alcohol abuse may lead to drunk-driving arrests or accidents, drinking-related medical conditions and an inability to handle one's home, work or school responsibilities. Alcohol abuse should be taken extremely seriously.
Alcohol Abuse Treatment Programs
Alcohol abuse treatment differs from alcoholism treatment in that detox is not necessary because a person suffering from alcohol abuse lacks the physical addiction and intense cravings that one suffering from alcoholism would experience.
The first step in alcohol abuse treatment is abstinence. If you have a problem with controlling the amount of alcohol you consume, just stay away from it altogether to eliminate the risk of binge drinking. You must train yourself to live without alcohol. To do this you should avoid people and places that make drinking the norm, such as bars and parties where alcohol will be consumed. Enlist the help and support of your family and friends, and try to establish a new hobby to replace drinking alcohol. Do something that makes you feel good about yourself and about what you're doing, such as volunteer work or a new exercise regiment.
Maple Grove Alcohol Treatment Can Put an End to Your Addiction
Drinking may seem fun at first. Your inhibitions fly away and you're free to have fun without thinking of the consequences. Alcohol may seem like a pretty mild choice for a vice at first. However, it's a drug and it's just as dangerous and damaging as cocaine or heroin to your long-term health. It can also damage your social and even family relationship, sometimes past the point of repair. Alcohol is legal for anyone over the age of 21. That doesn't mean it's harmless. One drink at a party or dinner every few months may be relatively benign. If you start to use it regularly, however, it can soon take over your life.
