Once you have committed to stopping alcohol abuse and getting your life back on the right track, it’s important to know you will have support every step of the way. We know that starting the alcohol recovery process is difficult. Your treatment begins from the time you first reach out for help. This is often referred to as treatment initiation and is considered an early phase of starting alcohol recovery. Whether you decide on residential or outpatient treatment, detox is an essential early step. It’s important to fight against temptation and cravings during this critical period of withdrawal. Over time, the struggle becomes maintaining abstinence.
In Grace Counseling’s alcohol treatment program, patients learn tools to avoid negative thinking and triggers that might otherwise result in relapse. The goal is to discover ways to enjoy a positive and healthy sober lifestyle. If you are ready to make a change, we encourage you to reach out to Grace Counseling today at 844.564.0712 to speak with a trained representative who can assist you in discussing treatment options that are right for you.
Taking That First Big Step
The most important factor is that you have decided to change your behavior and break the cycle of addiction. The road to recovery begins with detox. Your mind and body need to heal from the trauma of substances. The initial phase of detox is a period of acute withdrawal. Common symptoms of alcohol withdrawal can include:
- Profuse sweating
The next phase is sometimes referred to as Post-Acute Withdrawal Symptom, and this can include symptoms of mood instability, irritability, and mild depression. It’s important to keep in mind that these symptoms should only be temporary, and, in the long run, your mind and body will feel free from the health problems and lack of well-being associated with substance abuse.
Going “cold turkey” or attempting to go through withdrawal from a moderate to severe dependence on alcohol on your own is not recommended for reasons of personal safety. In a treatment facility, patients are monitored under careful medical supervision, and emergency services are available.
