Signs and Symptoms of Alcohol Abuse

When you are concerned about your drinking patterns or are concerned about a loved one’s drinking behaviors, you want to have an understanding of what to look for that indicates it is time to get help and make a change towards sobriety. Sometimes at the height of your addiction, your brain can trick you into thinking you don’t have a problem or that your life has not been affected by your drinking. Knowing the signs and symptoms to look for that typically indicate that alcohol use has been a cause for concern will help you become aware of what to look for and know when to reach out for help. Common signs and symptoms that will arise are:

  • Having to increase the quantities of alcohol to get the same desired effect 
  • Spending more time focusing on obtaining, drinking, or making plans to drink then you used to 
  • Excessive mood swings
  • Financial instability- borrowing or stealing money to be able to obtain alcohol 
  • Lying about your drinking to those who care about you 
  • Losing friendships or close connections because of your drinking 
  • Dramatic changes in physical appearance 
  • Increased anger or agitation 
  • Inability to follow through with obligations and commitments
  • Job insecurity- failure to follow through with work commitments or attend work regularly 
  • Isolating from others 
  • Changing social circles or functions to ones that support drinking 
  • Having delusions or hallucinations when you stop drinking and begin withdrawal symptoms 
  • Participating in high risk behavior 
  • Engaging in criminal acts 
  • Injuries occuring while under the influence of alcohol 

Long Term Effects of Alcohol Abuse

Most people know that long-term alcohol use affects the liver’s ability to function. However, alcohol use can create serious long-term effects that extend further than just liver damage. The longer you engage in drinking alcohol, the further and more severe the damage can be. For many patients who have engaged in long-term alcohol abuse, there is often a chance that those patients have an increased chance of being diagnosed with pancreatitis, various forms of cancer, and liver disease that range from cirrhosis, alcohol hepatitis, and fatty liver disease. In order to slow down or avoid the potential risks of developing these diseases, it is always recommended to stop drinking and enter into an alcohol rehab program. The use of alcohol is also associated with physical concerns such as an increased risk of stroke, heart conditions, or high blood pressure. 

Alcohol is a depressant and, often, patients turn to alcohol when they are experiencing low, unpleasant emotions that when you add alcohol can exacerbate the feelings of depression you are feeling. Alcohol use can affect a person’s mental health functioning and state. Oftentimes, patients will notice a decline in their ability to manage mental health conditions as alcohol use progresses. In some cases, patients will have a disruption in the brain’s neurotransmitters from prolonged alcohol use which can lead to a worsened mental health state. 

Medications that Can Help With Alcohol Withdrawal

Patients preparing to come to Resurgence to detox from alcohol are often concerned with alcohol withdrawal and the symptoms that they will experience. Each patient will have their own unique experience with detox as it will reflect your history with alcohol use including the length of time you have used, quantity, and frequency of your alcohol use. The symptoms that can be felt from alcohol withdrawal can range from mild to severe. For some patients that experience severe withdrawal symptoms, there is the potential to have life-threatening symptoms. That is why our staff provides a safe, medically supervised detox program that will have you monitored by nurses and physicians who have the ability to provide effective medical interventions such as medication to mitigate the severity of your symptoms. 

Inpatient Alcohol Rehab for Chattanooga Residents

For some Chattanooga residents, taking a break from the environment where you engaged in your active addiction will allow you the space and time to focus on your therapeutic process to heal from the pains of your addiction. You will enter into our residential facility where you will have access to onsite counselors each and every day. Your days will be structured with therapy sessions, group activities, and opportunities to connect with other patients where you will begin to build new connections for a community of supporters in recovery.  While in inpatient alcohol rehab, you will have the opportunity to participate in individual and group therapy sessions where you will gain insight into what has been fuelling your addiction and learn new methods of coping that will keep you centered and on track for your life in recovery. 

Outpatient Alcohol Rehab Near Chattanooga

Other Chattanooga residents may feel that they do not need the structure and intensive support from an inpatient program. While others may not have the ability to put their life on hold as you have other commitments such as work, school, or families to tend to. Resurgence wants to offer an alcohol rehab program that will still assist you in healing from the root causes of your addiction while allowing you the flexibility to return home to your loved ones or maintain your employment. 

Patients will have a range of outpatient treatment options to choose from that will be sure to provide you with the structure and levels of care that you need. Patients who need structured days of inpatient rehab but require the flexibility to return home at night often benefit from a partial hospitalization program (PHP). While others who want to maintain their employment but have the ability to come into the center for therapeutic sessions will benefit from an intensive outpatient program (IOP). Regardless of your level of outpatient alcohol rehab, you will be supported in developing a new lifestyle that is conducive to your newfound way of sobriety. 

Dual Diagnosis Treatment for Alcohol Addiction and Mental Health Disorders

More often than not, patients that enter into an alcohol rehab program often have a co-occurring disorder that you have been trying to self-medicate with the use of alcohol. While you may experience momentary relief from the unpleasant symptoms that you are feeling when you stop drinking the symptoms will often come back and become worse in some mental health conditions such as depression or anxiety. This often creates a cycle of alcohol abuse as you continuously try to mitigate the uncomfortable feelings with alcohol again. A dual diagnosis treatment program supports patients in treating each concern individually before further examining how each disorder has impacted one another. Our therapists will help you learn methods of coping with your mental health concern through healthy, natural outlets with methods of emotional regulation and emotional awareness. You will gain the skills to identify problematic situations, thoughts, and feelings and be equipped with the skills to navigate your way through the triggers and remain on the path to sobriety.
