Do You Need an Alcohol Detox Center?
It can be hard to know when to seek help for alcohol addiction. Alcohol is a depressant, slowing messages from the brain to the body. This is why people stumble, slur speech, and have poor reflexes while intoxicated. While drinking occasionally can cause these symptoms and dehydration, frequently drinking changes a person’s brain chemistry. When this happens, the brain and body become dependent on alcohol to function. Signs of alcohol addiction include:
- Alcohol cravings
- Mood swings
- Chronic dehydration
- Preoccupation with alcohol
- Other drug-seeking behavior
Alcohol is legal and culturally expected at many social functions and celebrations such as weddings, birthdays, Super Bowl parties, cookouts, work happy hours, etc. However, social drinking can often turn into habitual drinking. For many people, this can lead to alcohol dependency, alcohol overdose, and severe health problems. If you or someone in your life is showing signs of alcohol dependency, professional alcohol detox at Northpoint Nebraska can help.
Three-Step Alcohol Detox and Rehab at Northpoint Nebraska
At Northpoint Nebraska, we use a three-step program to help our patients safely detox from alcohol and begin their road to recovery. We recommend that our patients begin with inpatient detox so they can start recovery with a strong foundation. Then, our residential treatment programs and evidence-based therapies promote lasting sobriety.
Cleanse: Seven-Day Detox
The first step in Northpoint Nebraska’s alcohol rehab program is detox. We use medication-assisted treatment, 24/7 monitoring, and psychiatric care to help people safely and effectively detox from alcohol. When the body and brain develop alcohol dependence, withdrawal symptoms can make it impossible to quit drinking on your own. Quitting cold turkey can be dangerous and often leads to relapse or overdose. Like with other substances, an alcohol overdose can be fatal.
Understand: Inpatient Rehab
After withdrawal has subsided, patients spend approximately three weeks working with psychologists to understand addiction triggers and retrain their brains for healthy coping mechanisms. During this time, patients may also receive treatment for co-occurring mental health concerns.
Inpatient rehab helps patients focus on their journey to recovery without any outside distractions. You’ll build a network of support that can help you maintain your progress every step of the way.
Apply: Therapy and Counseling
Our inpatient center provides a variety of therapies to help our patients make lasting changes in their lives. We offer evidence-based treatments and holistic approaches such as:
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Dialectical behavior therapy
- Family therapy
- Group therapy
- Music therapy
- Yoga therapy
The right therapeutic approach, or combination of approaches, offers the best chance of a successful recovery and long-term sobriety.
