Alcohol is the most commonly used recreational substance around the world.

In moderation, the use of alcohol does not pose a major health risk for many people.

Getting Help for Alcohol Use Disorder (Alcoholism)

What Is Alcohol Use Disorder?

Alcohol use disorder is a mental health condition defined as a chronic compulsion to use alcohol, often without regard to the amount consumed or frequency of use.

This is often colloquially referred to as alcoholism or alcohol abuse.

When an individual with alcohol use disorder stops using alcohol, withdrawal symptoms manifest from physical and psychological dependency.

It is important to seek medical supervision when withdrawing from alcohol use disorder because the symptoms can be lethal.

Medical detoxification will eliminate toxins from alcohol throughout your body.

Detox is often performed at rehabilitation centers or medical settings.

Alcohol use disorder often leads to more problems, including isolation and suicidal ideation and/or tendencies.

If you or someone you know experiences these feelings, it is important to seek help immediately.

Early intervention may help prevent further damage.

Several methods of treatment are available for alcohol use disorder.

Some commonly used treatments are psychotherapy, counseling, and medication.

Common Signs of Alcohol Use Disorder (Alcoholism)

Alcohol use is legal and socially prevalent, and it can be consumed to excess. Capacity for alcohol intake varies; therefore, there is no set amount of consumption that provides an accurate indication of alcohol use disorder.
Below are common signs of alcohol use disorder or alcoholism:

  • Decline in work or school performance and neglect of other responsibilities due to alcohol use
  • Binge drinking or drinking more than intended
  • Drinking as a coping mechanism for another mental health condition (this is also known as self-medicating)
  • Continuing to drink despite negative consequences
  • Blacking out or not remembering actions under the influence of alcohol
  • Lying about how much alcohol is consumed

If you or someone you know displays any of these signs, it may be time to consider getting a proper evaluation from a licensed healthcare professional. They can help you find the proper treatment and resources available for alcohol use disorder.

How Is Alcohol Use Disorder Treated?

A variety of methods can successfully treat alcohol use disorder. Many mental health treatment centers or rehabilitation clinics offer treatment through both inpatient and outpatient programs. If the case is too severe for an outpatient setting, then admission into a mental health treatment center or rehabilitation clinic is the next step to obtain proper treatment.
Alcohol use disorder is treated through various therapies, pharmaceutical interventions, and counseling from healthcare professionals, including psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, psychiatric nurses, and social workers.
Typically, only a licensed medical doctor such as a psychiatrist can prescribe medication. However, in some states, psychologists can prescribe medication.

Alcohol Use Disorder Treatment in Private Practice

Alcohol use disorder can be treated in private practice as well. A private practice consists of a practitioner who provides treatment as a self-employed establishment. All therapy sessions including individual, group, and family therapy are provided in a professional setting under the care of licensed healthcare professionals such as a psychologist or counselor.
Many mental health treatment centers and rehabs are considered a private practice. Not all insurance carriers will cover the costs of private practices. Thus, it is important to find mental health treatment centers near you that are within your network.

Community Mental Health Centers

If a referral to a private practice is not possible, community mental health centers provide public mental health treatment services. Typically, community mental health centers are funded and operated by local government and provide services an individual might not otherwise be able to access.
Community mental health centers provide treatment services such as outpatient counseling and therapy, case management, and medication management. Case management services include referring individuals for employment, residential treatment services, day program services, and other supportive residential services.
Medication management services consist of a licensed medical professional such as a psychiatrist prescribing medications and monitoring the health and progress of the individual taking the medications.
Many individuals receive Social Security disability benefits and Medicaid to pay for the cost of these services.

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers

Alcohol use disorder is commonly treated at substance abuse treatment centers or rehab. It is important to have medical supervision when withdrawing from alcohol. Alcohol withdrawal can lead to delirium tremens, auditory and visual hallucinations, stroke, and death. Most substance abuse treatment centers provide both outpatient and inpatient services.
If you are receiving outpatient services is not required to remain at the center at all times. Instead, you will attend treatment services at the substance abuse center a determined number of times per week.
If you are receiving inpatient services, you are required to remain at the center for the duration of treatment. Common services provided by substance abuse treatment centers typically include medical detoxification, individual and group therapy, specific psychotherapies and other life skills and coping training, and medication management.
