What Is Your Tolerance to Alcohol Exposure?
Some people who struggle with alcohol addiction recover best in an inpatient environment where the “problem” is out of sight so treatment can effectively make alcohol out of mind, as well. Other individuals can easily regulate their exposure to alcohol, and inpatient treatment may feel too restrictive. Consider what’s best for you: a structured routine and inpatient experience; or a less intense outpatient program? We can walk you through that decision.
Spend the time to get to know the rehab center before entering a program. You’ve come this far and identified that you want to get better. We know that the process will require your commitment—and at Beachway, you’ll find therapists who are compassionate partners in your recovery. We are a family-owned facility that offers a comfortable retreat environment where you can focus on recovery from alcohol addiction.
We believe that first impressions matter, and we encourage you to call the rehab centers you’re considering and talk to an associate. Find out what makes them different, and see how at ease you feel during that conversation.

What are Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms?
Alcohol withdrawal refers to symptoms associated with the body ridding itself of its physical dependency on alcohol. The detoxification period of treatment can last anywhere from a couple of days to several weeks depending on the severity and degree of alcohol addiction. Alcohol detox programs are designed to create a safe environment for patients to detox with the supervision of a medical professional.
Some of the most common symptoms of alcohol withdrawal include:
- Depression, anxiety and mood swings
- Severe confusion
- Delirium tremens
- Grand mal seizures
- Cold sweats
- Headache and insomnia
- Loss of appetite
- Nausea and vomiting
Many individuals who go through detox on their own find themselves relapsing because of the unpleasant symptoms of alcohol withdrawal. The symptoms are often uncomfortable, intense, painful and distressing, which makes going through a detox from alcohol alone an option that is not recommended.
Cleansing and overcoming these symptoms is an important aspect of the recovery timeline as it allows individuals to move past the physical dependencies on substances so they can focus on healing and treatment for their alcohol dependence. Alcohol rehabilitation facilities are the best places since medical professionals are on-site to help manage alcohol withdrawal symptoms and administer the most effective alcohol withdrawal treatment. Cleansing is a different experience for each person; therefore, the treatment and methods used to reduce withdrawal symptoms are often unique to the individual in need.
What Causes Alcohol Addiction?
There is no standard for how much alcohol must be consumed, or how many times a person must use alcohol, before being considered dependent. And, the exact cause of alcohol dependence is still unknown. Research indicates a hereditary link, and there are environmental contributors such as a person’s upbringing. A person who grew up in a home with an alcoholic is more likely to struggle with alcoholism or alcohol dependence in the future.
We do know a few facts about alcohol addiction:
- Alcohol basically hijacks the pre-frontal cortex that houses cognitive behaviors, impulse control and the brain’s reward center.
- When a person is abusing alcohol, the brain produces a surge of dopamine that provides a feeling of satisfaction and pleasure. The brain remembers this feeling and learns to seek the substance to capture that same feeling again and again.
- Someone struggling with alcoholism or who is dependent on alcohol will seek this “high.” Over time, a tolerance for alcohol is developed and it takes more alcohol to achieve that same feeling.
Who Is At Risk For Developing Alcoholism?
Alcohol abuse does not discriminate. It can impact anyone of any gender, race, age or socioeconomic status at any time in life. People with the highest risk of alcoholism include those who: 1) consume upwards of five drinks per day; and 2) suffer from mental disorders or mood disorders like anxiety, PTSD, depression, bipolar, schizophrenia commonly referred to as dual diagnosis.
