Best Drug Rehab has a specialized program aimed for alcoholism. Alcoholism is a disorder whereby an individual develops an addiction to alcohol. Addiction to alcohol, or alcoholism, is characterized by compulsive and uncontrolled consumption of alcohol despite its negative physical and mental effects. There are a variety of risk factors including social environment, stress, mental health, age, ethnicity, and genetic predisposition. Alcoholism damages almost every organ in the body, especially the brain. This cannot only affect the individual physically, but also mentally. Individuals with alcoholism are more likely to show signs of anxiety and depression and are also less likely to seek help for these disorders. Instead, many of these individuals turn to alcohol as a means of coping with their anxiety of depression. Alcoholism is associated with a wide range of negative consequences including:

Best Drug Rehab | Ways to Seek Help for Alcoholism
There are many ways to seek help if a person is battling alcoholism. Several tools are available at Best Drug Rehab for those who may suspect alcohol abuse, including self-reports, questionnaires (such as the CAGE questionnaire), and doctor diagnoses. Treatment for alcoholics varies greatly and management for the individual should be considered with professional help. Several approaches include an abstinence-based zero tolerance approach whereas other approaches seek promotion of harm-reduction. Remember, detox alone is not significant enough to keep a person alcohol-free in the future. It is necessary to follow up detoxification with appropriate treatment (e.g., therapy, skills training, etc.) to lower the risk of future relapse. Alcoholism is a harmful disorder, hurting the individual and those who come into contact with him or her. However, alcoholism is 100% treatable and preventable!
