Why Professional Addiction Treatment is Important
You can recover from alcohol addiction. Substance abuse doesn’t have to be the rest of your life.
At the same time, you’re more likely to have a safe recovery if you get medical help. A study found that if you get treatment, you’re more likely to
- Stay alcohol-free for at least three years
- Have healthy coping mechanisms
The help of an inpatient treatment center gives you:
- Access to medical care
- A controlled environment
- Symptom control
Alcohol withdrawal can be hard to overcome without the help of treatment. That’s because it includes symptoms such as:
- Mood changes
- Stomach upset
It’s common to relapse during withdrawal, but you can relapse even later.
60% of people who recover from alcohol addiction relapse within a year. But you don’t have to be part of that statistic.
Getting treatment cuts your risk of relapse. It gives you the tools you need to cope with cravings. It helps you repair your relationships and your life. The bottom line is that treatment is the most important part of alcohol recovery.
