Just as there’s no such thing as a dumb question, there’s no shame in asking for help. However, some people have trouble with both. The latter can be particularly difficult for people who struggle with alcohol addiction. There can be many reasons why they won’t ask for help such as pride or fear, which can make it difficult for them to overcome their addictions, but it can be done. For instance, people who realize they need help can receive it via alcohol rehabilitation in Baltimore.

What is Alcohol Rehabilitation?

Professionals describe alcohol rehabilitation as a “healing environment” that provides people with “the support needed to make a successful recovery.”

How can people tell if they need professional help?

Professionals suggest people who believe they might have a drinking problem ask themselves a series of questions, which include the following:

  • Found that drinking — or being sick from drinking — often interfered with taking care of your home or family? Or caused job troubles? Or school problems?
  • More than once gotten into situations while or after drinking that increased your chances of getting hurt (such as driving, swimming, using machinery, walking in a dangerous area, etc.)?
  • Found that when the effects of alcohol were wearing off, you had withdrawal symptoms, such as trouble sleeping, shakiness, irritability, anxiety, depression, restlessness, nausea, or sweating? Or sensed things that were not there? 

What role does detox play in rehab?

Because addiction affects people mentally and physically, the detoxification process is multifaceted. For example, various medically supervised treatment methods are used to help people “dry out” safely in conjunction with counseling that helps them get to the root of their addiction issues.

What can be done if loved ones don’t think they need treatment?

Persistence is crucial, and so is getting backup by contacting an addiction specialist when pleas seem to fall on deaf ears.
