Alcoholism is defined as a physical addiction to and a mental fixation on alcohol. Alcoholism is particularly damaging to young people because a young person’s brain does not fully develop until age 25. Excessive drinking damages the frontal lobe and causes permanent impairment to cognitive functions.
Alcoholism affects every organ in the body
The most common disease associated with alcoholism is cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is the build-up of scar tissue in the liver. Over time, the liver fails because it is unable to function beyond the scarring and general degradation of the organ. Luckily, the liver is the only organ that can actually repair itself. If an alcoholic stops drinking, depending on what stage his alcoholism has reached, it is entirely possible he can arrest the damage and live a full life.
Pancreatitis is the inflammation of the pancreas. Pancreatitis occurs when digestive enzymes that are supposed to travel to the intestines instead remain and activate in the pancreas, resulting in an excruciating inflammation. The pancreas, like the liver, metabolizes alcohol. Excessive consumption of alcohol destroys cells in the organ, setting in motion the chain of events that onset pancreatitis. Individuals who suffer from pancreatitis are at greater risk for developing pancreatic cancer, which is nearly always fatal.
Alcoholism affects the circulatory system by constricting blood vessels, increasing blood pressure, damaging the ventricles of the heart and causing hypertension.
Alcoholics are at greater risk for diabetes, gout, neuropathy, obesity and seizures.

Depending upon the severity of his or her addiction, an alcoholic may have to physically wean himself off booze. This can be a dangerous endeavor and should not be attempted without trained medical professionals.
Detoxing from alcohol is a shock to the body. As said above, alcoholics are physically dependent to alcohol. When the body is denied it, physical reactions occur. It is not uncommon for alcoholics to suffer seizures if they go cold turkey. He or she may also experience hallucinations. Alcohol detox must be conducted in a controlled environment and under the supervision of a physician. Detox can take anywhere from days to weeks, depending on the alcoholic.
Our 3 Stage Alcohol Detox Program
When the body is stable, the healing can begin. Most inpatient treatment centers offer a recovery regimen based on the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. Inpatients eat regular meals. They go to bed at a decent hour. They participate in groups throughout the day as well as one-to-one meetings with counselors.
Alcohol Detox Treatment Approach
Detoxification is the first step towards achieving sobriety, however going cold turkey without necessary health management can cause both physiological and psychological complications. A detox facility or a recovery center ensures that a person gets the right supervision and medical support to achieve sober living.
Often persons diagnosed with alcohol addiction may also have an underlying mental health condition. For effective treatment of addiction from alcohol or substance abuse, it is important that the associated issue is diagnosed and treated simultaneously.
Once a person has successfully completed detox, the process of rehabilitation begins. Under rehabilitative therapy, a person is taught to deal with stressors and struggles associated with addiction and associative disorders.
Continuing to be Sober in mainstream life is a lifelong commitment and challenge and should not be limited to the detox facility. In order to stay clean post rehab persons must be made cautious of self –care and routine follow-up.
30-day residential treatment serves to transition the recovering alcoholic back to the real world. Unfortunately, many alcoholics relapse shortly after leaving residential treatment. Those who do stay sober work their program. This consists of working with an AA sponsor, going to meetings each day and participating in their recovery. Any alcoholic who leaves residential treatment and returns to his old haunts and behaviors will not stay sober.
Sovereign Health Group offers a variety of alcohol and drug detox options. We use Cognitive Behavior Therapy, or CBT, to assist patients process the negative feelings they may have about themselves and their addiction. Natural Assisted Detox or NAD is a non-chemical detox program that relies on amino acids to assist in the repair of the brain’s neurotransmitters that have been damaged by drinking.
