Alcohol Use Disorder

Although alcohol dependence and alcohol use disorder are separate conditions, although those who struggle with alcohol use disorder usually have developed a dependence on alcohol. If you are unsure if you or a loved one is struggling with alcohol use disorder, please refer to the criteria below:

  1. Drinking more alcohol, or for longer, than intended
  2. Trying to cut down or stop drinking but being unsuccessful
  3. Spending a lot of time drinking or feeling sick from a hangover or other aftereffects
  4. Experiencing interference in daily life and relationships because of drinking or being sick from drinking too much
  5. Having cravings for alcohol
  6. Continuing to drink even though it hurt relationships with friends and family
  7. Cutting back on, or giving up, hobbies to consume more alcohol
  8. Repeatedly being in situations where alcohol put one at risk of harm
  9. Having to consume more alcohol to experience the desired effects
  10. Continuing to consume alcohol even though it worsens a health condition, including anxiety or depression
  11. Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when alcohol’s effects began to wear off

If two or more of the above criteria applies to you or a loved one, then alcohol use disorder may be present. Inpatient treatment is both highly recommended for alcohol addiction, and it increases one’s chances of maintaining sobriety. With alcohol abuse, along with any substance abuse, many times the guest is suffering from a co-occuring disorder such as anxiety, depression, personality disorders, or other mental health issues. Royal Life Centers at The Haven runs on a holistic approach that provides comprehensive treatment for the mind, body, and spirit. Royal Life Centers at The Haven offers an inpatient detox facility to begin the recovery process. Inpatient means that our guest will be living in our facility, like in our detox and residential inpatient programs.

Alcohol Rehab

Rehabilitation from alcohol use disorder and substance use disorder is available in various forms of addiction treatment. Addiction treatment that is comprehensive, will provide addiction treatment to follow guests through their recovery process. The recovery process all starts with a medical detoxification, to remove the substance from the body, safely and comfortably.

Symptoms of withdrawal from alcohol can range from mild to severe, and can even be life threatening. Anything from muscle tension to delirium tremens to seizures can result in alcohol detoxification, which is why we provide 24/7 direct supervision by a team of medical personnel to ensure our guest’s safety and comfort at Royal Life Centers at The Haven.
