What is Alcohol Use Disorder?
The medical term for alcohol abuse is alcohol use disorder. It is synonymous with alcoholism referring to a pattern of alcohol use that regularly and negatively impairs daily activity. But alcohol has always been a risky substance. Its legality and widespread presence across American culture makes it one of the most common substances individuals, not just abuse but become addicted to.
Someone with alcohol use disorder is unable to control their drinking. What this means is they are unable to regulate the intake of alcohol. Because of this and alcohol’s addictive nature as a depressant, people quickly find themselves in significant distress. Alcohol comes to dominate their thoughts, making them preoccupied with finding and getting their next drink. As the disease progresses, individuals routinely find they need to drink more and more or more potent alcohol to achieve the euphoric effect they desire. Soon this excessive drinking leads to risky behaviors endangering both themselves and others. For example, drunk driving is one such excessive risk.
Unfortunately, those with alcohol use disorder can’t simply stop drinking. Going ‘cold turkey’ can do more harm than good. This is due to the fact the individual’s brain chemistry has changed. As they attempt to self-detox, they are unable and unskilled in addressing their body’s needs. Thus, individuals with alcohol use disorder suffer symptoms of withdrawal, such as:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Hand tremors and seizures
- High blood pressure
- Fever and sweating
- Delirium tremens.
Also, many people don’t realize alcohol withdrawal can last for up to two days or more. Without the supervision of trained professionals, an individual puts themselves in harm’s way by attempting detox alone.
How Bend Alcohol Rehab Center Can Help
Our alcohol rehab center offers comprehensive, multi-step programs. For many individuals, the first step when coming to our Bend alcohol rehab center will be medically assisted detox. During this process, our expert staff will monitor the individual to make sure they are safe and secure as they work alcohol out of their system. Often, treatment and therapy for alcohol addiction begins after a successful detox.
Once through detox, our counselors and therapists work with patients to personalize their treatment plan. Usually, treatment falls into one of two categories:
- Acute treatment: A program that can last up to three weeks; this is what most patients experience. During acute treatment, medical staff and mental health experts develop new treatment routines that can include medication, clinical appointments, and withdrawal symptom management.
- Long-term residential treatment: Some patients require long-term treatment. This can last a couple of months. Typically, patients with significant or longtime alcohol usage need this option. On top of basic treatment, long-term facilities provide wellness coaching and services to address the withdrawal, social, and clinical barriers to controlling alcohol addiction.
