Alcohol Addiction Treatment
There is always a celebration or festival here in Louisiana – and with that comes eating and drinking. When someone is addicted to alcohol it can negatively affect all aspects of their life, especially relationships. The devastating consequences of alcohol on your health and well being include issues with the heart, liver, pancreas and immune system, in addition to problems within the family, at work or with friends.
Various warning signs can help determine if your loved one has become addicted to alcohol. Here are a few of the most common symptoms of alcohol abuse:
- Blacking out or memory loss
- Signs of irritation or extreme mood swings
- Excuses for drinking such as to relax or deal with stress
- Isolated or distant from friends and family
- Drinking in secret
- Changes in acquaintances or group one hangs out with
Quitting “cold-turkey” can bring on extremely unpleasant side effects and in some cases can be dangerous. The Recovery Center of Baton Rouge can help to safely assist with detoxing from alcohol. Our intensive outpatient program is individualized, so your loved one can have the best possible chance at recovery. Give us a call at (225) 927-7475 to learn more.
