5 Reasons That Alcohol Detox is Necessary Before Alcohol Addiction Treatment

alcohol detox, alcohol addiction treatment

Alcohol detox is important for several reasons, and this step offer many benefits for anyone who has a problem with alcohol addiction. Some top reasons why alcohol detox is necessary include:

1. A Better Chance of Permanent Recovery- Alcohol detox is often needed in order to gain a permanent recovery. Going cold turkey without any support usually leads to a relapse, especially when the withdrawal symptoms start. Alcohol addiction can be extremely difficult to overcome permanently without the right detox programs and methods.

2. Eliminate Any Medical Risks Possible During the Withdrawal Period- Alcohol detox programs are designed to eliminate any medical risks that you may face while you are withdrawing from this substance. In severe cases alcohol withdrawal symptoms can be dangerous or even deadly, and a medically supervised alcohol detox program can prevent these problems.

3. Clean Alcohol From The Body Before Starting Alcohol Addiction Treatment- Before you begin alcohol addiction treatment it is important that you are clean and sober, and this means alcohol detox in some way.

4. Fewer Or Less Severe Withdrawal Symptoms- Alcohol detox can help minimize the severity and number of withdrawal symptoms that you experience. Programs that involve medical supervision can provide medications which help to control withdrawal symptoms and keep you more comfortable during the alcohol detox process.

5. Alcohol Detox Usually Provides Better Treatment Results- When you enter an alcohol detox program before receiving alcohol addiction treatment you will generally get a much better outcome. Until you are completely clean you can not focus on the issues that you must work through to address your substance abuse problems.  

Surprising Alcohol Abuse Statistics for Women

alcohol abuse, alcohol addiction treatment

Alcohol abuse affects almost all age and income levels, and there are some surprising statistics that many people are not aware of. In the USA alone between 12 million and 14 million people over the age of 21 use alcohol on a regular basis. Treatment for alcohol addiction can be found in all types, but a large percentage of people do not believe that they have a problem or that they need help and addiction treatment. The drinking habits of men and women are usually different, and many women choose wine as their alcoholic beverage of choice. Men tend to use beer or hard liquor instead of wine, but both sexes have seen an increase in alcohol consumption and binge drinking. This includes adults over the age of 40, a time when many are well established in life and have a lot to lose with an alcohol addiction.

The elderly are also a big concern because many in this population suffer from alcohol addiction as well. Roughly 10% of women who were between 40 years old and 64 years old reported binge drinking at least once in the last month, and the most common answer was three episodes of binge drinking within the last 30 days. This is the same rate that college aged women abuse alcohol, and it shows that all age groups are at risk. Alcohol abuse can lead to a higher risk of being victimized for women, and binge drinking is especially harmful to the body and internal organs. The Crossing Point has effective alcohol addiction treatment programs for all ages and both sexes, because we understand which methods work and lead to success.
