All you will need is treatment and the will power. alcoholism treatment works for many people. But just like any chronic disease, there are varying levels of success when it comes to treatment.

With treatment, one thing is clear, however: the longer a person abstains from alcohol, the more likely he or...


Q: 

alcohol treatment

A: Rebecca,     Thank you for contacting AllExperts.com about your situation and your candor.     The thing that is most difficult for people who are not alcoholics to understand is that alcoholism is a disease and not a moral question.  It is not something shameful and embarrassing.  It is like contracting a deadly disease or cancer and seeking outside help is what any intelligent person would do in that case. It is the same for alcoholism.  It is a malady that we say is an allergy of the body and an obsession of the mind.    That malady is not easily arrested if we do not have tools with which to get the job done.  treatment...


Q: 

In search of finding the right alcoholism treatment for my boyfriend

A: Dear Sharon, I can quite understand that he does not like AA, because this is a faith based alcohol treatment program, with a low success rate and that completely ignores the biological aspects of alcoholism. alcoholism is a physical and medical illness, that can be treated by means of Nutritional Therapy. But you need to understand the underlying biochemical mechanism. It is theoretically possible for your boyfriend to treat himself if he studies some of the articles at our web site. Please let him read: Drug Addiction is a Nutritional Disorder at: http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/articles/drug_addictions_nutritional_disorder.htm... Why Alcoholics Drink? at...

Q: 

Alcohol treatment in CA?

A: 1) First things first....get to a detox that will take you - maybe a city hospital or something of the sort. You will pay through the nose without insurance, but that is the least of your worries. Your experience will be that you are housed with persons you never thought you would spend the night with. However, realize that it could be the best night of 2) Go when you are starting to detox, not when you are stone drunk. You will be shakey, but able to articulate your intentions. Your need for medical support will be apparent. Sorry for the blank honesty, but this is the truth for persons who need assistance with out insurance. Try to get inpatient detox for at least 7 days. Seizures don''t start until after the 2nd or 3rd day (if you are prone to that). 3) Don''t think you are any better...


Q: 

alcoholism treatments outside of a recovery centre

A: Good afternoon Tina and thank you for your question. Since you have made up your mind to "stick by your man", the only suggestion that I can give you is to start attending Alanon meetings. If you don"t go on a continual basis then you will remain ignorant about the disease of alcoholism and your relationship with your boyfriend.  will become very trying to say the least. It"s interesting that most addicts don"t want to discuss their problem. At Alanon meetings you will find out what you can do to help your boyfriend, by first learning to help yourself. Until you are armed with the right information about the disease and its implications, your efforts to help him will be for nothing. Alanon can be reached by calling: 1-800-344-2666 (United States) or...

Q: 

Aren''t alcohol treatment programs in recent times august scheme to rip past its sell-by date those?

A: No, alcohol treatment programs aren''t schemes to rip stale people. It take money to build a treatment center, it takes money to win yourself checked up by a doctor, right? When a person have a disorder and needs to be cured by medication and psychoanalysis, they pay the doctor for the services rendered. The same is true near alcohol treatment programs. They''re not trying to rip you off. They merely can''t give you that perfect of a service if they aren''t getting anything in return. How would they be capable of have obedient facilities and attain good doctors if they don''t own the money? Besides, a treatment program costs less than continuing alcohol use. A thousand dollars is nil if...
Q:

Q: 

In search of finding the right alcoholism treatment for my boyfriend

A: Hi Sharon, the best program is Teen Challenge.  Don"t let the name fool you - they have adult centers also.  The intake fee is moderate, maybe $500, but there is no cost for the one-year program due to the fact that the client works 40 hours while they are there for the program.  I myself am a graduate of TC. They are in over 90 countries and almost in all 50 states.  Search online and you will find one in your area to call. www.liveperson.com/derek-johnson...
