Alcohol Treatment Information

Alcohol is a psychoactive drug and a form of ethanol, a main ingredient in gasoline. Alcoholic beverages are typically categorized into three groups: wine, beer, and spirits. Production, distribution, and use of alcohol are regulated by individual states in the United States. Alcohol is a drug that has a depressant effect and when used to excess will reduce the abuser’s attention span, reduce reaction time and motor skills, and compromise other aspects of the user’s ability to function. While occasional excessive consumption of alcohol may have significant ramifications for anyone (such as a drunken driving arrest, an injury caused by impaired motor skills, etc.), long-term abuse of alcohol can have a negative impact on almost every aspect of an individual’s life.

Effects of Alcohol Abuse

Chronic alcohol abuse can affect every aspect of the addicted person’s life: health, family, friends, business, and can have fatal consequences. Alcohol-related fatalities have occurred in nearly every community across the country and often involve harm to innocent bystanders. Alcohol addiction can lead to heart disease, dementia, stroke, cancer, liver disease, as well as harming nearly every organ in the user’s body. It has been estimated that alcohol intoxication and abuse directly and indirectly cause over 100,000 deaths per year in the U.S.

Alcohol Detoxification Withdrawal Doesn’t Have To Be Painful

The caring staff at Chapters Capistrano knows that most people are anxious about avoiding the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal and this keeps them drinking. We understand that withdrawal can be uncomfortable, but it doesn’t have to be.

Through the alcohol rehab program at Chapters, our process engages the most traditional and safe form of withdrawal from drinking alcohol, which is a drug-specific detox. Clients receive mild prescription medication under medical supervision that reduces the risk of seizure and eases withdrawal symptoms. These medications generally are prescribed in tapering amounts until the body is physically stabilized.

Chapters Capistrano recognizes the unique challenges presented by alcohol addiction.  Contact Chapters today to learn more about our personalized alcohol rehab program. Beat alcohol dependence and enjoy sober living, call our 24 hour helpline at 949-371-4198 or email today.
