Alcohol de-addiction needs a commitment to follow lifetime
Alcoholism is genetic. It is surveyed and proved that 40% of the alcohol addicts have a genetic factor that leads to this addiction. Other 60% of the addicts get habituated to this due to various factors such as social, economical or even stress. This addiction, like any other abuse, can be very dangerous if not treated in time. Almost 95% of the alcoholics die of untreated addiction. This addiction directly damages the lever, which has a function similar to a purifier. Once the lever is damaged it then affects the kidneys, eventually taking the life of the addict. Though alcohol has many adverse effects, it still can be medicinally effective in some cases, if taken in moderation. Many medical practitioners do suggest a minimum dose of alcohol for a relaxation purpose after a very long and hectic day. This quantity of the alcohol can be taken in for whole of the life, without even having to face any addiction problems. This drink is just like any other relaxation therapy. For some little amount of alcohol can do wonders in the delicacies they prepare.
However wonderful an alcohol can be, it still has its black side and that is predominantly negative. It shatters families, individual lives, careers etc. the alcoholics need to accept the problem caused due to their addiction. Once it is done, half of the battle is won. There are various rehab facilities, which are specialized in treating the alcoholism. There are many types of treatments available for curing this addiction. The best suited is chosen by the clinical experts at the rehab. Many moderately addicted cases can be cured in the out- patient section, where the addicts are not required to leave their life and get admitted into a rehab. Alcohol treatment centers follow treatments which suit the individual needs and requirements. The addiction initially only observed and then the recovery program is planned. If required the sedations are given, sometimes the tranquilizers are also used in the treatment. An appropriate drying out period is stipulated for every patient. Many times hallucinations occur as a result of withdrawal, for treating them, the patients are required to be in hospital.
Most of the times the treatment is followed in an un-orderly manner; this is done so, because every individual has different capacity to react to the medicines and has different tolerance towards them. Contemporary rehabs believe in individualistic approach in recovery.
