It can be difficult to determine alcoholism, abuse or addiction. The consumption of alcohol is a common practice shared by many. It is a thin line between social consumption and dependency on drinking simple indicators such as the time of day that drinking begins, the amount of consumption, and frequency of drinking, can be warning signs of an issue. Many may wonder "how do I stop drinking?" In this critical time alcohol rehab is a good measure to get one's life back in order. Cirque is considered by most a leader in this field for addiction treatment. We personalize our drug rehab and alcohol rehab program and balance it with experiential therapy.

Do You Need and Alcoholic Program?

Understanding Alcohol Addiction

For most people alcohol addiction is not developed overnight. In fact it can take years of subtle increased use in some cases before dependency begins to take hold. Alcohol functions as a depressant on the central nervous system. Alcohol is absorbed into the blood stream and enters the brain. Alcohol attaches itself to a number of receptors in the brain slowing down the activity of the central nervous system. Extended alcohol abuse can damage many of these receptors making it difficult for the body and mind to function properly. This also can lead to a greater dependency to alcohol.

The problem with an alcohol addiction is the tolerance the body can develop to drinking. To achieve the same desired effect of alcohol an individual must increase drinking or move on to harder alcoholic beverages. This not only leads to dependency on alcohol but also a greater level of destruction of the central nervous system. Further tolerance to alcohol can also lead to coupling drinking with the use of drugs to increase the influence on the brain. This is a dangerous practice that can result in overdose and death. No one deserves this, and that is why we provide alcohol rehab in a private and effective matter.

Dependency can be a very devastating aspect to one's life. When you are dealing with dependency to alcohol a chief concern is of course withdrawal. Denying someone alcohol when they are dependent on it can result in seizures and even death. Proper detoxification is recommended for dealing with dependency and withdrawal. There are a number of medications that can be utilized during withdrawal to curb the effect and limit the symptoms one might have to endure. Following detox should be an alcohol addiction treatment program.

Alcohol Addiction Treatment

There are just so many different aspects to alcohol addiction treatment. Usually when an individual thinks of alcohol rehab they think of Alcoholics Anonymous. A chief component commonly used in alcohol rehab is the 12-step program introduced by Alcoholics Anonymous. At Cirque Lodge we found our treatment on the same principles of the 12-step modality. For some this program is not nearly effective enough. For those individuals we incorporate other leading treatment modalities that we provide in our alcohol rehab center.

An effective aspect to treatment is our individualized treatment approach. Our alcohol rehab program is designed to work differently for each individual. We specifically meet the needs of each resident for the best possible outcome recovery. Each person who comes to the Lodge or Studio has different needs and addiction problems. We are dedicated to providing treatment for each one of these different needs. At Cirque Lodge we also emphasize independent counseling to resolve personal issues and diagnose any co-occurring disorders. Genuine care yields greater results and at Cirque Lodge care is our top priority for those in alcohol rehabilitation.

We also incorporate a balance of several therapy programs to enhance the overall alcohol treatment program. Chief among these therapy models is experiential therapy. The experiential therapy program at Cirque Lodge is a major aspect to treatment for alcohol addiction. Experiential therapy is daily activity and therapy programs to provide different aspects of treatment to the addicted individual. Some days, experiential therapy consists of nature based activities in the surrounding mountains. Other days it may involve our equine therapy program, or even a private helicopter ride. The purpose of these activities is more than just to have fun. It also is responsible for vital spiritual experiences to inspire the change in the individual.

Recovery for Alcohol Addiction

It takes more than just initial addiction treatment to completely rid oneself from addiction or alcoholism. It can take months and a serious commitment before the influence of the alcohol addiction is truly gone. At Cirque Lodge, we provide continuing care and a relapse prevention plan to aid in continued practices of sober living. Our aftercare professionals are dedicated to assisting this plan with the right outpatient and support programs specific to the persons living area and residence.

An effective part of alcohol rehab is our lifetime guesting privilege for graduates. Former residents can return to Cirque Lodge for a few days to refocus their efforts on sobriety. We understand the difficulty of the initial months of recovery. Many of us have been through it to. Returning to our alcohol addiction facility in your hour of need can provide you with the confidence needed to continue in recovery. Lifetime guesting is based upon room availability and is only available for individuals who have remained sober.

The serenity of the mountains awaits those who suffer from alcohol addiction. Your alcohol addiction does not have to be a way of life. You too can find the hope and recovery provided here at Cirque Lodge. Our accredited addiction treatment program can return the hope into your life. If you or your loved one is in need of treatment, we can help.
