In the United States, more than 6 percent of adults struggle with an alcohol use disorder (AUD).

However, with individualized care and the help of a qualified therapist, patients are empowered to overcome AUD and live a life free of addiction.

Our alcohol rehabilitation programs are designed to provide each individual with the close, personalized care and support they need to detox and heal from their addiction while also empowering them to regain their independence.

What Is Alcohol Addiction Rehabilitation?

Alcohol addiction rehabilitation is a slow and involved process that begins when an alcohol abuser chooses to stop drinking, makes a goal to abstain for good, and enters a credible rehabilitation center. Following this decision, the individual will go through detoxification therapy to rid their body of the substance and enter into a rehab program to overcome the challenges of withdrawal.

In alcohol rehab, patients work with professional medical and psychiatric staff to create a strategic plan for maintaining sobriety and preventing relapse in the future. People in alcohol rehab will not only overcome their alcohol abuse, but they’ll also make personal changes that are conducive to lifelong abstinence and that will improve their health in the process.

One of the biggest goals of rehab is to determine the underlying factors and psychiatric disorders behind a person’s alcohol abuse. An overlap of disorders is referred to as dual diagnosis, and at Beachway Therapy Center, we specialize in treatments for these co-occurring addiction and mental health disorders. We know that when alcoholism’s cause is identified and eliminated, the reason for the drug or alcohol substance abuse evaporates.

Rehabilitation programs aim to promote continuous abstinence and long-term sobriety. Through extensive therapy and supplemental withdrawal medication, a person can find relief from addiction and fully heal. After rehab treatment, patients are ready to reenter society and continue pursuing relationships as well as professional and educational pursuits with their newfound independence and healthy mindset.

Who Needs Alcohol Rehabilitation Treatment?

Alcoholism is easy to self-diagnose. By asking a series of simple questions to decide if drinking has turned into full-blown addiction:

  • Has your drinking habit caused you to lose interest in your hobbies or relationships?
  • Do you find it difficult to stop once you’ve started drinking?
  • Have others commented on your drinking or encouraged you to seek help?
  • Have you experienced withdrawal symptoms after attempting to stop drinking?
  • Have you started drinking in an attempt to mask feelings of anxiety or depression?
  • Are you struggling to obey local laws due to a compulsion to drink excessively?
  • Do you hide your drinking from friends and family members out of shame?
  • Does your alcohol usage cause hallucinations or insomnia?

If a person answers “yes” to any of the above questions, they could benefit greatly from treatment in a rehabilitation facility. Even the slightest loss of control can quickly spiral out of hand; recognizing and treating the problem early will prevent it from negatively affecting a person’s life any further.

Those with a true alcoholism disorder may experience extreme symptoms like seizures and hallucinations when they try to quit. This condition is called delirium tremens, and if experienced, one should seek immediate help from a medical professional.



Choosing to seek help for alcohol addiction is often a difficult first step down the road to recovery. It’s completely normal for a person to doubt whether or not rehab is necessary or right for them. However, alcoholism and addiction or AUD (alcohol use disorder) – like many other diseases – can be dangerous if left untreated. With extended overconsumption of alcohol, the brain’s chemistry begins to change, causing the body to develop a dependency on alcohol and making it extremely difficult to quit without help. Professional rehabilitation helps arm patients with the education, care, and support needed to overcome AUD. At Beachway Therapy Centers, we provide our patients with a safe and calming environment where they are able to detox and heal from their addiction.

What Types of Alcohol Rehab Are Available?

Deciding on what treatment approach works best for an individual begins with understanding the different levels of care

Medical Detoxification

Before a person can make any real progress in their fight against addiction, they must be physically free from alcohol. Medical detox will typically come first in a patient’s treatment plan.  This process is to remove dangerous toxins in preparation for treatment. Due to drug withdrawal symptoms’ dangerous nature, detoxification is carried out in a controlled environment under proper medical supervision.

Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient alcohol treatment is a little more common than outpatient treatment for serious addictions. It fully immerses patients in a healing environment and has a higher patient success rate. Patients check into a rehab center and will remain there throughout the course of treatment, which can last between one and six months.

Despite its effectiveness, inpatient treatment tends to be more expensive and puts everyday life on hold. However, patients have 24-hour access to medical staff and psychiatric professionals and will be able to focus all their energy on recovering.
