Alcohol addiction is a dangerous pattern of alcohol use, leading to significant impairment. A person will develop a tolerance for alcohol and over time has the need to increase the amount of alcohol to feel the desired effects of intoxication. Less time will be spent with social, occupational, or recreational activities, and more time will be spent engaging in activities needed to obtain alcohol, use alcohol, or recover from its use. With alcohol addiction, efforts to cut back or control one’s alcohol use are unsuccessful and when tried, the person will feel terrible withdrawal effects.
Here at Wellington Retreat, we welcome those individuals who struggle with alcohol addiction, who are tired of feeling hopeless and caught in a cycle that feels never-ending. Wellington Retreat can assist individuals in leaving alcohol addiction in their past, allowing them to return home with a new outlook on life. They gain the ability to become the productive members of their community, reaching the goals they have set for themselves in life. Through a structured and well-rounded treatment plan, tailored to the individual patient’s needs, detoxification occurs and the patient also learns how to lead a life without relying on alcohol. This includes understanding the factors in their lives that lead to their alcohol addiction and instead of turning to alcohol, developing healthy coping habits that replace that need to drink.
