When is Alcohol Rehab the Solution?

Private Alcohol RehabRecognising that you have a problem with alcohol can be a bit of a problem. In fact, for many that is the hardest step on the road towards recovering from their alcohol abuse. After all, it is tantamount to admitting to weakness and to admitting to a state of being that is widely regarded as rather shameful. Fortunately, whether you are questioning your habits yourself or fear that someone you know may be suffering from alcohol abuse, you do have help. There are numerous alcohol treatment centres available that are specifically geared towards helping alcoholics recognise their addiction to alcohol, recover from it and also equip them with the skills and mindset necessary to maintain sober.

But how can you tell that you or someone you know has a problem anyway? Well consider the behaviour first.

The truth is, there is rarely a definitive sign that marks alcoholics out from the rest of society. They may very well look just like any other functioning member of society, with a house, a job and everything seemingly together. The image of a sad, besotted fool collapsed in the street singing songs about goblins with nothing to his name but a half-empty bottle of something-or-other is only the worst-case scenario. But that’s the thing, while they appear to be perfectly functioning, the actual truth of the matter is a different story. Often it is simply a case of denial and a large attempt at hiding the problem, but in the end it will only make things worse. Eventually the house, the job and the family become impossible to marriage, and it all goes down the drain.

Indicators, therefore, are exceedingly subtle and hidden. They require careful outside observation or truly honest introspection, with plenty of analysis and thought thrown in. Things to look out for are:

  • Frequent arguments
  • Feelings of being misunderstood
  • Gaps in memory or short-term amnesia
  • Lack of energy
  • Problems with work or relationships
  • Depression/anxiety
  • Sleeping troubles
  • Health complications, such as high blood pressure, gout or liver problems
  • Frequent run ins with the law

As a rule of thumb, try to remember this when considering rehab: if you don’t have a problem, then you have nothing to lose by rehab. If you do have a problem, you could lose everything if you don’t take rehab.
