Treating Alcohol Abuse
Alcohol abuse is the recurring use of alcoholic beverages despite the negative consequences.
You drink too much. There it is. If you’re reading this, you’ve decided it’s time to address the situation.
“You drink too much. You’ve decided to address the situation.”
So how does this work? Well, individual patterns vary significantly so give us a call and we’ll discuss your personal situation with you.
The first step is to determine whether you need a detox period. This is a medically supervised, gradual tapering off of the alcohol in your system presently. If you need medically-supervised detoxification, we’ll help you make arrangements with a resource in your area.
After clinical detox, many people enter traditional 12 steps programs. You may have tried to work the 12 step program and feel it didn’t work for you. Don’t be too hard on yourself, it doesn’t work for everyone. What’s different about The Clearing? We work with addiction holistically which is to say we work with you on the four levels of existence that compose an individual. The physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.
