Overcoming alcohol addiction is a long process that requires both personal dedication and various treatments or therapies. Depending on the nature and the level of addiction, the professionals suggest various treatment options, which include:

1. Detoxification- Detoxification is performed in an inpatient therapy treatment in a certified alcohol rehab. It usually takes one week to complete the therapy. The symptoms of physical withdrawal can be dramatic, therefore, one is given medications to help prevent:

- Hallucinations
- Confusion
- Shaking

2. Behavior modification- This is an integral part of coping with alcohol addiction. One needs to learn skills and coping mechanisms to avoid the use of alcohol once discharged from the alcohol rehab centre. Therefore, the doctor may refer one to some other treatment program to help learn the skills and coping strategies to stop alcohol abuse.

3. Counseling- Taking counseling and joining a support group is an important therapy for treating alcohol addiction. By interacting with other people, one can help each other in attaining positivity in the life and help one overcome alcohol addiction.

4. Meditation- Doing meditation and yoga regularly help to calm the soul, which ultimately helps one to cope up with alcohol addiction and live a healthy lifestyle.

John is correct, people need to be aware that there can be severe withdrawal symptoms when someone is detoxing from alcohol. This page has more detail about the dangers of doing it yourself.

There are a number of different approaches to alcohol treatment. Not all approaches are best for every individual. This is why it’s important to find a treatment facility that best meets your needs. For example, here at Diablo Valley Drug & Alcohol Services, we offer an outpatient approach to both detox and treatment. This means that individuals don’t live at our facility while getting the help they need to get sober. However, this may not be the best option for individuals who think they need residential treatment.

There is no one way to recover from drug or alcohol addiction. Plus, it’s important to note that once a person is an addict, they remain an addict for the remainder of their lifetimes. So, it’s important to find recovery that works on a daily basis for you personally. As far as treatment, you have a number of options. You can choose either outpatient or inpatient, depending on your needs. With therapy, there are both individual and group options, as well as holistic therapies that can help with various issues you can experience throughout recovery. No matter what type of treatment you choose, make sure that it works for you. Don’t be afraid to look for something different if it’s not working. Addiction recovery is not one size fits all. To find something that works for you, choose a facility and group of support that offers a number of different options for treatments and therapies. This way, you get your individualized needs met since addiction doesn’t affect every person the same.

Every people need to be treated differently. Some times we combine the 12-Steps with Intense Process Therapy to lead our patients to a path that ensures life-long recovery and a drug free life style. The core issue, the possibility of a relapse always remains. Lack of a secure attachment growing up also serves as fertile ground for addiction. Always try the most possible ways when treat a addicted person.
