Undergoing the process of withdrawal and detoxification from any addictive substance is no easy feat. However, with the right care and support at your disposal, getting back on the sober track is completely doable. Life doesn’t come without its fair share of challenges, but the biggest challenges often reap the best rewards. Are you ready to free yourself from the enslavement of addiction? Consider this your go-to guide on taking back control of your life.


Oftentimes, individuals struggling with alcoholism find themselves able to function normally in everyday life. However, after some time when the grips of alcohol take an even stronger hold, there comes an end to that so-called functionality. Once this inevitable point arrives, many people are hesitant to reach out for help due to the stigma surrounding alcohol abuse. They may fear judgment from family and coworkers, or perhaps struggle to admit that they even have a problem at all. The bottom line is this: If alcohol is affecting your happiness, relationships, or ability to perform at work, then it’s safe to say there is a substance abuse problem that needs your care and attention.


It takes a certain level of vulnerability to seek help for an addiction problem through a trusted rehab facility, but rest assured, doing so will benefit you in ways you cannot even imagine. Depending on the severity of the addiction, going through alcohol withdrawal can be life-threatening. You will need trained medical professionals to help you along the way to ensure your health and safety are supervised, both physically and mentally.


There are many common symptoms that go along with the detoxification process. Much of it depends on a person’s typical usage, how long they have been abusing, and if they are tapering off slowly vs. going cold turkey. The most important thing to know about detox is that you should never go it alone. It is important to have reliable professionals on-hand ready to address any overwhelming physical and/or mental symptoms often associated with detox to help ease discomfort.


Once the physical symptoms have passed, there comes another battle known as Post-Acute Withdrawal Symptoms, also known as “PAWS.” When the physical sickness subsides, the psychological aspects begin to surface. Anxiety, depression, and paranoia are quite common during this period. Fortunately, your rehabilitation professionals are available for both group and one-on-one therapy to help you work through this mental unrest. What you are experiencing are feelings that have been pushed away and ignored in favor of the numbness alcohol brings. Facing up to the turmoil of these emotions allows for a better state of mental health that will greatly benefit you in the long run. When you conquer negative emotions, you will become stronger and no longer feel the need to avoid or fear them ever again.


In more severe cases where typical inpatient treatment isn’t enough to help a person achieve lifelong sobriety, there are extended options available to ensure long-term success without falling back into relapse: Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) / Day & Night Treatment Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) Outpatient Programming DUI Programming Sober Living


Ask anyone who has overcome their struggle with addiction and they will tell you, “Getting sober is easy. Staying sober is the difficult part.” It seems that when we feel our best, those old self- destructive tendencies try to worm their way back into our lives. After all, when we feel good, we feel confident. So confident, in fact, that we convince ourselves we’re in total control of our lives and therefore in control of our addictions. Do not fall into this line of false thinking. Time and time again, a return to addictive substances is a return to the downward spiral of addiction.


Once you have achieved your new life free from substance abuse, reorganizing the people and places you frequent will be more than necessary. Stick to those who support your sobriety. Avoid places where triggers to drink exist. Know when to walk away from situations that put your health at risk. You may lose some old friends, but there’s a good chance you will also make some new friends who understand and appreciate the amazing, unstoppable person you have become.
