Psychological Conditions Depicting Alcohol
Addiction
  • Adverse effects of alcohol addiction
  • Alcohol addiction always bears adverse effects on
    the drinker. It not only leads to pathetic
    medical conditions but degrades respect in the
    society drastically. The person has to deal with
    lots of abuse and ignorance. It even affects his
    family, colleagues and friends adversely. The
    alcohol addict is even outcast. The poor medical
    conditions lead to gastrointestinal damage of
    the system. Apart from this liver, pancreas,
    heart, blood and nervous system are severely
    affected too. Alcoholic dementia, neuropathy,
    epilepsy and sexual dysfunction are some other
    conditions caused by alcohol addiction.

Alcohol Addiction Treatment in 3 steps
  • The alcohol treatment program consists of
    following steps of treatment-
  • Intervention
  • Detoxification
  • Rehabilitation

  • Intervention
  • There are two categories in this. In the first
    condition the person is not dependant on alcohol
    but is a problem drinker. He drinks in moderation
    and can successfully deal with his drinking
    issues. If he does not drink in control, he
    should try to stay away from it as alcohol
    addiction affects his family, education, health
    and raises many other similar issues.
  • Treatment through counseling for the addict and
    the family member is very much necessary in this
    case.

  • Detoxification Detoxification is the alcohol
    treatment program that gets completed in 4-7
    days. However the number of packs he drinks in a
    day decides the likelihood of alcohol withdrawal
    symptoms after drinking is stopped.
  • Rehabilitation In order to maintain alcohol
    abstinence, support for the problem drinker is
    provided after detoxification alcoholism
    treatment phase is accomplished. The recovery
    support program comprises of counseling, nursing
    and medical care. Furthermore making the addict
    aware about the symptoms of alcoholism on various
    body parts is also included in the program.

Alcohol Addiction Treatment through Group
Therapies
  • Peer Group Discussion
  • Such group discussion programs are an integral
    part of evidence based alcohol addiction therapy
    programs. The specialists dealing in addiction
    programs conduct meetings wherein they discuss
    all sorts of issues and people from different
    walks of life who have been struggling with the
    issue severely. They also discuss various coping
    strategies and the experience addicts have
    employed.
  • Family Therapy
  • It is mandatory that the family members stay in
    touch with only those family relatives who
    provide positive family dynamics and assist in
    making the complete recoveries. Rehabilitation
    programs necessarily make addicts parents and
    his siblings part of such program. Such agendas
    also make addict analyze as in how their
    uncontrollable behavior hurts his family members
    and their lives.
  • Community Support
  • There are some of the alcoholics who need
    additional therapy in addition to complete
    alcohol addiction programs. Most of such
    communities have exceptional support groups to
    assist in making these people sober. Apart from
    all these, the most supporting feature of such
    groups is to assist these people in forming
    accountability partnerships in addition to
    lifelong friendship with similar mind people.

Alcohol Addiction and Binge Drinking
  • What is Binge Drinking?
  • For teenagers, alcohol is not less than a drug
    that devastates their rest of the life.
    Statistics of U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental
    Health Services Administration reveal that in
    America alone, 4,750 kids below 15 years of age
    take their first drink. Instead of knowing that
    alcohol consumption is illegal and understanding
    its severe consequences, they do it secretively.
    Experiments have explicitly stated that such
    teenagers under 15 are 5 times more likely to
    fall prey of alcohol consumption in contrast to
    adults. Another drastic outcome of tasting
    alcohol at this age is that they consume far more
    alcohol than adults over shorter period of time.
    This stage is referred as Binge Drinking.

  • Underage drinking Campaign Understanding the
    severe impact of binge drinking and alcohol
    addiction, SAMHSA developed public awareness in
    regards to health education. SAMHSA looks for
    bright future of the future generation and
    engages parents, caregivers, schools and
    communities so that underage drinking can be
    prevented. The parents should start talking about
    the dangers of alcohol with kids as soon as they
    are 9 years old. The primary objective of the
    alcohol campaign is-
  • -Developing awareness among parents in regards
    to prevalence and risks of teenage drinking.
  • -Developing awareness, knowledge and confidence
    in parents and equipping them to deal with such
    situations with optimistic state.
  • -Assisting parents in taking actions so that
    underage drinking can be prevented.

Social Life and Alcohol Addiction Treatment
  • Addicts should attend Inpatient Rehabilitation
    Programs
  • Shun the drinking Society
  • Avoiding alcohol in Workplace
  • The most painful part- Cutting the alcoholic
    friends
  • Alcoholics should plan strategies to control such
    temptations whenever they are trapped in any
    situations.
