Why Is Alcoholism Such a Widespread Problem?
Every time you turn on the TV, you see commercials for beer, wine, or other alcoholic beverages, or you see characters in your favorite sitcoms and series drinking with their friends and having a good time. When you listen to the radio, there’s no doubt that you hear at least one commercial (but likely much more) that advertises a great-tasting beer or a refreshing cocktail. As you flip through the pages of magazines, you probably see ads for alcohol, too.
And that’s not all… Alcohol is often the center of celebrations and good times. It’s associated with fun and excitement. In addition to being socially acceptable, alcohol is also easily accessible and fairly inexpensive. It’s almost impossible not to imbibe every once in a while; however, once drinking becomes more commonplace, it can quickly develop into an addiction.
Because alcohol is so glamorized, so accepted, and easy to get, it’s no wonder why alcoholism has become an epidemic in our country.
Why Alcoholism is Hard to Treat
Even though drinking is such a huge part of the American culture and that alcoholism is so prevalent, it’s still difficult to treat.
It’s not that alcoholism can’t be treated. Many people who are addicted to alcohol do not see that they have a problem or are not willing to get help. Why is that? – There are actually two reasons why:
- Many people who are addicted to alcohol don’t want to admit they have a problem, whether it’s because they feel embarrassed, they don’t want to appear weak, or they just don’t think that they have a problem.
- Many people think that they can take control of their alcohol use on their own. In other words, they believe that they can stop drinking whenever they want to or cut back whenever they want to. However, it’s almost impossible for an alcoholic to stop using it entirely without the right support and proper education.
Getting Help for Alcoholism
How can someone who is addicted to alcohol get the help needed to stop using it and become sober?
The first step is admitting that a problem does, in fact, exist. The second step is realizing that help is needed to overcome the problem.
Once an alcoholic admits that there is a problem, they can move forward and seek help. Since alcoholism is such a widespread problem, several treatment options aim to help individuals overcome their addiction.
At Ocean Hills Recovery, we offer one of the most effective alcohol treatment programs in the Santa Ana area. Backed by years of research and using evidence-based treatment processes, our treatment programs have proven to help countless people overcome their addiction to alcohol successfully – and we are optimistic that we can help you, too.
Our Treatment Approach
We believe that addiction affects every person differently, and as such, no two treatment methods can be – or should be – the same. To ensure that our patients have the best possible outcome and successfully attain sobriety, we devise customized treatment plans for each and every person we work with.
To devise a customized treatment plan, we consider a number of factors. These factors include:
- How long a person has been using alcohol
- How often the individual drinks
- How much the person drinks
- Whether or not there is a family history of alcohol addiction
- If the person has tried to stop drinking before
- If withdrawal symptoms are experienced when the person isn’t drinking
- If any co-occurring mental health conditions may be contributing to the addiction
All of these factors are vital for formulating the best treatment plan. During an intake assessment, we collect this information, and we are then able to devise the most effective course of action. For some people, this may include outpatient treatment. For others, it may include inpatient treatment, as well as medically supervised detox.
Whatever type of treatment program we devise for you, you can rest assured that at Ocean Hills Recovery, you will receive the absolute best care and support possible to effectively overcome your addiction, achieve sobriety, and move forward toward a happier, healthier life.
