Tens of millions of Americans struggle with alcohol abuse and alcoholism every day.
Unfortunately, only a handful will get the help that they need in a quality alcohol and drug addiction treatment program. There are many reasons for this failure to get the necessary treatment. Some people know that they have a problem, but they need help taking the required steps. Others don’t feel that they can take time away from the responsibilities of family, work, or school to get the help they need. Addiction Recovery Institute of America is here to help.
Additionally, many people with an alcohol use disorder don’t realize they have a problem. Alcohol is a socially accepted substance. It’s also available on practically every street corner. Additionally, many forms of media portray drinking as a harmless social ritual. Indeed, when we come across someone who does not drink in these media, we are taught to wonder what is wrong with them.
If you need the services of an alcohol addiction treatment program, you are not alone. Alcohol is highly addictive and there are genetic components of addiction that can make it difficult to stop on your own. An alcohol addiction treatment program can help you to stop drinking and learn coping strategies.
Contact the Addiction Recovery Institute of America to learn more about residential alcohol treatment, outpatient alcohol treatment, and alcohol detox. No matter what level of support and guidance you need on your way to recovery, we are here to help.

DO I NEED AN ALCOHOL ADDICTION TREATMENT PROGRAM?
Determining the extent of a drinking problem is not an easy matter. Adults over the age of 21 are legally allowed to consume alcohol in the United States. Just because someone drinks alcohol does not mean that they have alcohol use disorder.
Specialists tend to say that it is safe for men to have somewhere around two drinks per day, and for women to have about one. There are people who do not have drinking problems who drink more than this, of course. To help individuals determine if they may need the help of an alcohol addiction treatment program, the American Psychological Association has laid out some criteria. These include:
- You feel the desire to drink alcohol when you are not drinking.
- You spend significant amounts of time purchasing, drinking, and recovering from the effects of alcohol.
- It has started to take more alcohol to feel the effects you once did; your tolerance for alcohol has increased.
- When you have tried to reduce the frequency or amount you drink or tried to stop altogether, you have failed and/or experienced withdrawal symptoms.
- You have found yourself engaging in risky behavior under the influence of alcohol, like driving or operating machinery.
- Work, family, and social obligations have taken a back seat to your drinking. You have failed to live up to your responsibilities as a result of your alcohol use.
This list is by no means complete. If even one or two of the above criteria apply to you, however, you should consider reaching out to an alcohol addiction treatment center like ARIA.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN AN ALCOHOL ADDICTION TREATMENT CENTER?
At our Florida alcohol addiction treatment center, your treatment will begin with a complete assessment of your physical and psychological condition. We must determine the level of your dependence on alcohol and your history with the substance, and assess any other health factors that may be involved. Many people who struggle with alcohol abuse, for instance, also have undiagnosed mental conditions like depression, anxiety, or PTSD.
From there, we can determine the level of care appropriate to your circumstance. Are you in need of medically supervised detox? Is outpatient care involving individual and group therapy enough? Are you in a position to continue to live at home, or do you need residential care or a sober living facility? At ARIA, we offer the full spectrum of addiction treatment from detox to outpatient care.
Our specialists will be there around the clock to monitor your condition, helping ease you through the withdrawal symptoms that accompany detoxification and give you the tools you need to achieve lasting sobriety. It’s time you lived the life you deserve.
