Alcohol Rehab, also known as alcohol rehabilitation, is a process for individuals who have made a decision to quit drinking and find new ways to live without alcohol. Due to personal problems such as strained family relationships, employment issues, and emotional upheavals, the “normal drinker” who abuses alcohol, drinks alcoholically on occasion, but can stop when they choose to do so. People who experience negative consequences as a result of their alcohol abuse and are unable to stop, may be alcoholic and need alcohol rehab at a place like The Arbor.
In the 20s and 30s before alcohol rehab came into existence, people with severe drinking problems were sent to sanitariums. These were primarily individuals who suffered breakdowns from extreme emotional distress as well as those who suffered from alcoholism. As the medical profession began to acknowledge the serious nature of physical consequences the alcoholic suffered when trying to stop drinking, an alcohol detox protocol was developed. As modern medicine and therapeutic communities began to partner to treat the physical and emotional aspects of alcoholism, alcohol rehabs became a safe haven for alcoholics who wanted to quit drinking and regain their sanity.
The Arbor is fortunate to have decades of experience behind the medical and clinical portions of their program. If you or a loved one are suffering from the negative consequences of drinking and cannot or will not stop, contact The Arbor for more information and to determine if treatment is the right solution.
