Alcohol Rehab in Freeport NY
Alcohol Rehab in Freeport, NY
Alcoholism is one of the hardest addictions to overcome. Without professional treatment, counseling, and peer support, most alcoholics continue to drink until they face legal problems or health problems that force them to stop. It is not their fault; alcoholism also referred to as AUD is a chronic relapsing brain disease characterized by compulsive alcohol use, loss of control over alcohol intake, and a negative emotional state when not using. Alcoholism is more common than any other addiction. Because alcohol is a legal drug, and because it is socially accepted as well as promoted as a social norm, many people develop problems with alcohol.
Freeport Alcohol Addiction Treatment
According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, NIAAA,
“Approximately 17 million adults ages 18 and older have an alcohol use disorder (AUD), and 1 in 10 children live in a home with a parent who has a drinking problem… The good news is that no matter how severe the problem may seem, most people with an alcohol use disorder can benefit from some form of treatment. Research shows that about one-third of people who are treated for alcohol problems have no further symptoms one year later. Many others substantially reduce their drinking and report fewer alcohol-related problems.” (NIAAA)
The new gold standard among quality substance abuse treatment programs for AUD is to include evidence-based forms of therapy. Evidence-based forms of therapy are a type of psychotherapy that helps the alcoholic better understand how their thoughts influence their behaviors and emotions. One type of evidence-based therapy that has shown great success in helping alcoholics stop drinking is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
All of the alcohol rehab programs we recommend, include CBT as part of their treatment. Another quality evidence-based therapy that the treatment programs utilize, and we advocate for is Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. DBT is similar to CBT but focuses on improving behaviors first. When combined, these two types of therapy enable alcoholics to recover from their disease much easier.

Other types of therapy that have proven results in helping alcoholics attain sobriety is Individual Counseling, Group Therapy, Holistic Therapy, and Dual Diagnosis programs. There are AUD treatment programs available in Freeport NY and out-of-state that we recommend which utilize all of these types of therapy and treatment methods. If you or your loved one is ready to end their drinking and begin a new life in recovery, we can assess you or your loved one over the phone and make admission into a program happen within 24 hours or less.
It is important that when a person finally admits that they have a problem with drinking and need help – that they receive it promptly. Alcoholics require urgent help if they have physical, mental, or emotional withdrawal symptoms. Many alcoholics are afraid to stop drinking because of the severity of their withdrawal symptoms.
Medically supervised detoxification from alcohol is the easiest way to end the fear of withdrawal symptoms that include insomnia, anxiety, delirium tremors, depression, hallucinations, seizures, and nausea and vomiting. Alcohol detoxification should never be attempted without medical supervision by a staff of professional doctors and clinicians who specialize in alcohol detoxification.
All of the Freeport alcohol rehab centers that we recommend for AUD are fully licensed, JCAHO certified, and staffed by leading professionals who specialize in alcoholism and addiction treatment.
