Counseling Associates in West Bloomfield helps individuals overcome alcohol addiction

Alcohol Addiction Counseling from West Bloomfield
Overcoming an alcohol addiction can be a challenge that may seem insurmountable. However, it is a worthy goal and can be achieved, often with professional help and hard work. The team at Counseling Associates in West Bloomfield has helped many people overcome alcohol addiction by setting goals, learning adaptable skills, and talking about the reason for addiction.

Treatment begins with you

Treatment for alcoholism is only successful when the alcoholic accepts that he or she has a problem and wants to stop drinking. If the individual is promising to change for a loved one or a job, the likelihood of success is much lower. Once the individual has made this choice, treatment typically follows several steps: determining if detoxification is medically required; rehabilitation; and maintenance.

Continued therapy leads to greater success

Support during rehabilitation and maintenance is crucial. It’s important that patients have both a professional and a social team that cares about their recovery. A professional counselor or therapist can help an addict in the following ways:
  • Discover what causes the individual to want a drink and find other ways to cope or address the issue.
  • Understand how addiction has affected relationships, career, health, and mental well-being.
  • Receive treatment for any other psychological issues a person is experiencing, such as depression or attention deficit disorder. Addiction often goes hand-in-hand with other mental health issues, as alcohol is often used by patients to self-medicate.
  • Create strategies for dealing with alcohol temptations such as places or people with whom they used to drink.
  • Manage setbacks and challenges. The path to recovery is not easy and many patients experience setbacks along the way.
