What really happens in rehab for an alcoholic?

Answer #1

I don’t personally know what goes down, but I did some research, and here’s what I found: “People who need help in overcoming their addiction to alcohol will use alcohol rehab to go through detox, counseling and follow-up treatment. They might be treated for physical and psychological dependence on alcohol. The recovery process often begins with alcohol detox, when the person might experience withdrawal symptoms. The body must cleanse itself of harmful toxins from excessive alcohol consumption. As a result, the patient could experience symptoms, such as irritability, sweats, depression, anxiety, and seizures or even blackouts in severe cases. Some dru.gs could be prescribed to help manage withdrawal symptoms. The detox period could last for several day or weeks, it just depends. Some rehab programs deal exclusively with teenage alcohol problems. Counseling could include one-on-one sessions or group counseling. In individual counseling, the person might learn to understand the cause of his/her alcoholism and ways to find solutions to the problem. In group counseling, people might share stories about their particular addictions. Group therapy helps provide support for all participants, who learn they are not alone and that others have similar difficulties.”
