Alcoholism is a progressive illness
Despite alcohol being accepted in many cultures, it is widely cited as a significant contributor to death, disease, and injury. This is due to alcohol’s nature as a psychoactive substance that can lead to physical dependence and psychological addiction. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism states that around 7.2% of adults have an alcohol use disorder. This can be due to various causes, including physical, psychological, genetic, or lifestyle factors.
Symptoms and effects of alcoholism
Alcoholism is often mistakenly considered to affect individuals who are weak or cannot function. In fact, it is a chronic disease that can affect people of any age, race, social status, or income level. For many people, the effect of drinking is harmless, but for some of us, it can lead to dangerous consequences. Drinking alcohol is associated with a risk of developing health problems such as liver cirrhosis, some cancers, cardiovascular diseases, and mental and behavioral disorders such as depression and anxiety. If left untreated, full-blown alcoholism is a progressive illness that worsens over time and can cause enormous harm, both to the sufferer and to their loved ones.
The most common symptoms of alcoholism
- Memory impairment
- Extreme mood swings
- Making excuses for drinking such as to relax, deal with stress or feel normal
- Feeling hungover when not drinking
- Choosing to drink over other responsibilities and obligations
- Engaging in risky behaviours, such as drunk driving
- Being in denial about the extent of the alcohol abuse problem
- Becoming distressed at the prospect of not having access to alcohol
At our luxury alcohol rehab, we adopt an approach that is discreet, non-judgmental, and confidential. Our priority is to identify and treat the root causes of alcohol addiction. We look beyond the symptoms of alcoholism and examine the function of drinking in a client’s life. We then treat the entire person: mind, body, and spirit. At The Kusnacht Practice, Luxury Alcohol Rehab, we adopt four major pillars of treatment: psychotherapy, Biomolecular Restoration, complementary therapies, and spiritual counseling in the form of The 12 Steps. Using The 12 Steps, our qualified experts provide care and support individually in discreet and comfortable surroundings.
