What is Alcohol Abuse

Alcohol abuse results from the sensation of tolerance, in which individuals increase their consumption of alcohol with no consideration for the limit they can have before feeling the effects. Over time, more alcohol is consumed as the level of tolerance grows. This tolerance grows and develops into an addiction.

Individuals addicted to alcohol may be unable to satisfy the craving until they consume the amount their body desires. Based in the Los Angeles area, the Nova Vitae Treatment Center organizes preventative intervention plans to help affected individuals avoid the path towards alcoholism. Relapse prevention is one of the goals of our treatment program. Long-term recovery is based on eliminating the physical dependence on the alcohol and set the stage for extensive sobriety.

What are the Signs that I Need Treatment?

With the widespread occurrence of alcohol use, it can be challenging to identify what distinguishes alcohol abuse from moderate drinking. If you are experiencing concerns about your drinking habits, then there are some signs you can identify that may indicate alcohol abuse, including:

  • Frequent binge drinking
  • Inappropriate intoxication in work or school settings
  • Risky behavior
  • Difficulty limiting consumption
  • Higher drinking frequency
  • Excessive alcohol use to improve emotional state
  • Not stopping use at one or two drinks
  • Increased isolation
  • Financial or legal problems due to alcohol use
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms

How can Intervention Help?

The prevention or intervention plan incorporates positive peer influence, education groups, and gender-specialized sessions to help alcoholics bond with peers who share their problem. This allows the affected individuals to uncover the root leads to their drinking.

Nova Vitae Treatment Center provides a number of options for treatment, which offer the best chances of achieving long-term recovery. These include a managed detox program in a supportive facility, on-site staff available 24/7, multi-bed residential program, community integration, family and group support, and more. The treatment experience begins with detox, which is a vital part of the recovery process and ensure that traces of alcohol are safely removed from the body. This can help reduce withdrawal symptoms and enable patients the first step to improving their mental and physical health.

In treating an alcohol addiction, digitalized care is also provided. This includes online group therapies, counseling, and mental health treatments.
