Alcohol Addiction

A Systems Approach to Managing Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol Addiction

Every day, millions struggle to overcome their addiction to alcohol. This often progressive medical condition is known as alcohol use disorder (AUD) and is characterized by the uncontrollable consumption of alcohol. AUD can disrupt every facet of people’s lives, causing dysfunction in their families, challenges in their social lives, and both physical and emotional stress. The good news is that effective outpatient alcohol rehab options are available in Raleigh, NC. No matter what stage of AUD individuals are facing, there is a powerful treatment plan ready to help them regain control. For more detailed information, visit the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.

What Are the Symptoms of Alcohol Addiction?

The signs and symptoms of alcohol addiction can vary greatly from person to person, but some common indicators include:

  • Spending a lot of time pursuing, consuming, and recovering from alcohol
  • Increased frequency and amount of alcohol consumed
  • Craving alcohol
  • Inability to fulfill professional and/or home responsibilities due to alcohol dependence
  • Using alcohol despite its negative effect on meaningful relationships
  • Unsuccessful attempts to stop drinking
  • Acquiring a high alcohol tolerance
  • Continuing to drink despite experiencing mental and/or physical disturbances brought on by excessive drinking
  • Sacrificing or reducing time spent on hobbies and activities because of alcohol
  • Driving or operating heavy machinery during or after consuming alcohol
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms (e.g., seeing things that are not real, seizures, increased heart rate, upset stomach, abnormal sweating, inability to rest, excessive shaking) when attempting to stop or reduce alcohol consumption

How We Treat Alcohol Addiction

We believe that effective treatment for alcohol addiction goes beyond addressing the physical symptoms. Our approach integrates evidence-based therapies, medication management, and holistic practices to support your overall mental health. We strive to function like a Recovery Oriented System of Care (ROSC), which emphasizes a coordinated network of community-based services and supports that are person-centered and build on the strengths and resilience of individuals, families, and communities. Learn more about ROSC here.

We understand that mental health is influenced not just by the mind and body, but also by the environment and circumstances of your life. Eating well, sleeping well, getting plenty of exercise, having hobbies, and maintaining healthy relationships aren’t always enough to feel your best, but without these building blocks, achieving wellness is much more difficult. We provide the tools and support necessary to manage real-world challenges in real-time, enhancing your ability to apply coping strategies and maintain stability across all facets of your life.
