It is reported through studies that people who have social and family support, motivation and overall good health are more likely to recover and remain abstinent from alcohol. Around 50% to 60% of addicts show signs of full recovery. For those people with no motivation and absence of any kind of moral support, the evaluation period is longer as they generally tend to relapse.
The treatment process includes three stages which are detoxification, rehabilitation, and sober maintenance. Detoxification should be applied under medical care if alcohol addiction is in the late stages as it can have life threatening implications. It is important to know that detoxification cannot prevent cravings, so it is difficult to maintain recovery.
The medicines included in the treatment process for alcohol abuse include Benzodiazepine, this is an anti anxiety drug used for withdrawal symptoms like poor sleep and anxiety. Another medicine is Disulfiram which can be used when the detoxification phase has passed. This medication is most suitable for highly motivated individuals as it interferes with alcohol metabolism.
An alcohol detox program is an integral component of any alcohol treatment. Many factors must be considered when developing an alcohol detox protocol. Issues such as your age, medical issues, amount and frequency of alcohol use are all considered. The alcohol detox treatment protocol developed is the key in managing any symptoms associated with alcohol withdrawal. An alcohol detox program should be a medically monitored unit, complete with 24-hour nursing and a physician credentialed in addiction medicine. Due to the health concerns associated with alcoholism or alcohol abuse, an alcohol detox and treatment program must be able to address the medical needs of each patient.
