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.
