Alcohol Rehab Treatment Programs for San Antonio Residents

Alcoholism is a cunning disease that has no boundaries or limitations for the lives it can affect. Often, for most alcoholics, you didn’t think your drinking was problematic for a long time until suddenly it was. The use of alcohol is a common way that many feel they can put the stress of their problems behind them. With many users thinking there is no harm in a glass of wine after dinner or a beer to relax after a long day of work, there is the common oversight that when used as a way to destress or cope with life is a slippery slope to a life of dependency on alcohol. 

You may have questions if you really need to focus on getting help for your alcoholism or if you even, in fact, have a problem. Oftentimes, if you are already questioning if your behavior is ‘normal’ then it is often a sign that you need to look deeper at the reason you are turning to alcohol, to begin with. San Antonioians are not immune from this way of thinking and many have turned to the remarkably helpful team at Resurgence Behavioral Health to get to the core of their drinking habits to be able to heal while also getting insight on ways to handle the curveballs that can come our way in life.

Warning Signs of Alcoholism

With the social factors associated with alcohol use,  it can be hard to distinguish when a social drink turns into a drinking problem. The normalcy of drinking is prevalent around many Americans which creates difficulty in recognizing when your drinking has turned into problematic drinking. While each person experiencing alcohol addiction will exhibit different warning signs, here are some common signs to look for within yourself or your loved one you are concerned about. 

  • Difficulty maintaining school or work commitments 
  • Lying about your drinking to those around you 
  • Difficulty with memory or concentration 
  • Irregular levels of anger and irritability 
  • Severe mood swings 
  • The majority of your time is consumed with drinking, thinking about drinking, or trying to find funds to get alcohol for your next drink. 
  • Risk taking behavior 
  • A need to increase the amount of alcohol consumed for the desired effect 
  • Anxiety or depression 
  • Isolation 
  • Increase in conflicts/arguments with loved ones, colleagues at work, or social circles 

If you are concerned that some of these signs ring true for you or your loved one, contact the supportive team at Resurgence Behavioral Health today. Our compassionate team is here to guide you in the right direction to get your life on track for healing from addiction. 

When Should I Go To Alcohol Rehab?

You have been toying with the notion in your mind about going to rehab for quite some time. Maybe you have still been able to function and maintain exterior commitments with work and home life while you are drinking. There is a common misconception that before you enter into rehab, most people have hit a “rock bottom” or had a spiritual awakening that their alcohol use needs to end. While this may be the case for some patients entering into rehab, it isn’t always the case for everyone.

If you have noticed a change in your life since alcohol has come into the mix whether it be related to external commitments, your motivation level to take part in activities that once brought you joy has recently declined, or you are finding your overall wellbeing and happiness have become affected. You know yourself best and if you feel deep inside that since alcohol has been a regular thing in your life that your life has changed, it may be time to look into alcohol rehab to find the joy in your life again. 

Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms

Some may have tried to detox on their own before and have felt the unpleasant withdrawal symptoms that can come with detoxing from alcohol. Others may have heard stories from others about the severity of withdrawal symptoms that can occur. This shouldn’t deter you from entering into rehab. Your experience will be yours alone and may not reflect the stories you have heard. To put patients’ minds at ease, we like to advise symptoms that can occur in some cases to have you prepared while also putting your mind at ease in knowing that completing your detox within our facility means that you will have the support of our knowledgeable medical team and caring group of counselors. 

Withdrawal symptoms that can occur are:

  • Elevated heart rate 
  • Sweating
  • Chills 
  • Nausea 
  • Erratic mood swings 
  • Depression 
  • Anxiety 
  • Insomnia 
  • Tremors 
  • Seizures 
  • Delirium tremens (DT’s) 

Alcohol Detox Rehab

Alcohol detox is the first step in recovery. While it produces unpleasant feelings or symptoms, it is important to remember that your detox will end and you will see the light and relief at the end of the road. With the support of our onsite nurses and physicians, your withdrawal symptoms will be closely monitored. Your safety and comfortability is our top priority. We will be checking in with you throughout the day to monitor how you are feeling and provide you with treatment methods to ease your detox process. There are medications that can be offered that will ease the severity of symptoms in your withdrawal process as well as medications that work to lower your urges for alcohol. As your symptoms improve, your need for medication will taper off and you begin doing the emotional work of healing the deeply buried emotional scars that have impacted your drinking. 

Inpatient Alcohol Rehab Programs for San Antonio residents

Inpatient alcohol rehab is effective for San Antonio residents who are wanting to release the emotional pains of the past to heal for a healthy future. Inpatient alcohol rehab gives you the time away from your day-to-day life to focus on what the underlying concerns are that are fuelling your addiction. 

Through individual and group therapy sessions, you will begin to use therapeutic methods that will look closer at your ability to process your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. Emotional regulation is a skill that many alcoholics lack the knowledge of how to do properly. While many individuals can identify in moments or anger or sadness what they are feeling. Many lack the knowledge to look deeper than the surface emotion and dig deep into why you are feeling that emotion. By using therapeutic methods such as:

  • Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) 
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) 
  • Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

These modalities of treatment will give you the awareness of your emotions and the ability to look deeper at the factors that are affecting your emotions. Through these treatment approaches, your ability to slow down and analyze what you are feeling, what thoughts are going through your mind, and how your behavior is reflecting that. Becoming fully self-aware of your body as a whole will keep you honest with yourself and others about what you are feeling. The better you can identify your feelings, the more you will be able to point out triggering emotions and use relapse prevention techniques that will keep you on the right track to fulfill your recovery goals. 

An alcoholic tends to live a lonely life with most people turning away from the supports they once had and distancing themselves from loved ones. With memories of how people have hurt you still replaying in your mind and leading you to distrust those around you, it can be hard to rely on anyone, even in your darkest time of need. Connection and belonging is core human need. While in inpatient alcohol rehab, you will be supported by not only our counselors who, many of them, have life experience of going through rehab but also from your peers who are experiencing similar feelings and had similar hardships. As you go through group therapy and 12 step meetings, you will begin to build your sober community around you to ensure that you never have to feel alone again. 

Outpatient Alcohol Rehab Programs for San Antonio residents

For some residents of San Antonio, committing to an inpatient rehab program may feel like too much of a break from their busy, daily schedules or family that they have to care for. You know inpatient may not be the best option for you right now but you also know that you are ready to move away from a life of alcoholism. Outpatient alcohol rehab gives patients the flexibility to choose when they attend therapy sessions that will fit into their busy home and work-life schedule. You will still have access to one on one individual therapy that will give you the emotional clarity of what has brought your alcoholism to the forefront of your concerns while also educating you on emotional awareness and emotional regulation. It is recommended that San Antonioans that participate in outpatient rehab ensure to have a stable, support circle in their life while you work on their emotional healing journey. There will still be cravings that can occur, we want to ensure that you have the drive and motivation to be able to reach out for support when you are feeling triggered.
