Title: Social Life and Alcohol Addiction Treatment

Social Life and Alcohol Addiction Treatment
  • Alcohol addiction severely affects the life
    of more than 76 million people worldwide.
    It means a huge percentage of people spoil
    their health, family and social life by
    being alcohol dependant. The chief reason
    why so many people are dependent on it is
    its availability on public places. Social
    Rehabilitation programs teach the alcohol
    addict the ways to cope with such
    situations and deal with relapse triggers.
    This is the most successful way to bring
    drastic change in the social recoveries
    each year. These addiction treatment
    programs have revealed miraculous changes
    in psychology and neurological symptoms.
  • What addicts must do?
  • After addicts have attended the
    rehabilitation programs, they are supposed
    to make many lifestyle changes which basically
    require lots of sacrifice, hard work and
    patience. This even includes tremendous scale of
    compromise in the society which they once led.
    Alcohol is a kind of drug that is easily
    available in the society. To come out of
    this heinous habit and surrounding, and to
    survive in the society with respect,
    alcoholics should go through the following ways-
  • Addicts should attend Inpatient Rehabilitation

  • These programs are for those who have
    strong dependency on alcohol. Such patients
    are supposed to live under strict guidance
    within clinic for 2-3 months. They are provided
    rigorous therapies of more than 50 hours each
    week. Such programs are highly effective and
    bring long lasting changes in the behavior. When
    such patients are placed in isolation
    supported by treatments, it makes them out
    of touch of people consuming alcohol.
  • Shun the drinking Society
  • We all know that alcohol when consumed in
    restricted amount is considered medicine
    however its excessive amount makes the life
    of addict and its family members hell.
    Despite this fact it is legally and
    socially accepted in surplus amount at family
    gatherings, friendly outings and social get
    together. Though most people maintain their
    limit but on the same place alcoholics
    fail to maintain. It is advisable that
    recovering addicts decline such invitations and
    find new friends who stay miles away from
  • Alcohol and work environment
  • Alcohol has become part of most of the
    working environment. People fail to enjoy
    any occasion without it. In fact business
    people consume more alcohol while networking
    with partners and social clients or during
    the process of recruiting. However those
    who want to stay safe know their limit
    and fulfill their responsibilities well.
  • The most painful part- Cutting the alcoholic
  • To stay away from addiction triggers, one
    should stay away from people who drink
    excessively and uncontrollably. Cutting ties
    with any such friends is the deadest part of
    the rehabilitation programs. The best part of
    such rehabilitation programs is that they assist
    such addicts joining new group of friends and
    repairing old circles.
  • Avoiding or coping strategies
  • It may be easy for drug addicts to avoid
    narcotics, heroin, cocaine etc but since alcohol
    is easily available and widely used. Hence it is
    suggested that alcoholics should plan strategies
    to control such temptations whenever they are
    trapped in such situations.
  • Undoubtedly, leaving alcohol is an extremely
    difficult task to accomplish but the
    rehabilitation programs guide the addicts to
    overcome such thoughts and emotions by designing
    splendid strategies that provoke them to
    drink. When these addicts are armed
    with such information, they themselves
    develop personalized methods to manage their
    alcohol cravings.
