Alcohol Addiction and Alcohol Treatment



It can be difficult to get someone struggling with alcoholism into an alcohol treatment facility. A lot of this has to do with the stigma built up about alcohol abuse by society. This stigma makes them feel that they do not have a problem and that they can quit if they need to. Many times it is up to loved ones to get them the help that they need.

Alcohol addiction can lead to dependency which becomes an all-consuming factor of the individual. Families, employment, and basic living environment are all strained by alcoholism. When the body has developed a dependency to alcohol it isn't recommended to stop "cold turkey." Withdrawal effects from alcoholism can be life threatening. In the case of stopping alcoholism proper therapy is needed to effectively treat the problem and not lose the individual to withdrawal problems.

Detox Program in Treatment



Detoxification is often times recommended at the beginning of alcohol rehabilitation. Detox depends on the severity of the addiction and the increased severity of withdrawal. Detox is 24-hour monitoring and care for any of the withdrawal symptoms caused by the alcohol addiction. Detoxification is taken care of at an off campus facility a short drive from Cirque Lodge at the University of Utah. This detox center is a medical facility fully staffed with medical professionals to effectively treat the difficulty of withdrawal.

Withdrawal Symptoms can vary but can include:
  • Nausea
  • Seizures
  • Rapid heart rate, heart complications
  • Tremors
  • Delirium (The DT's)
Medical Detox provides treatment and stabilization in different ways as well:
  • Helps to manage acute withdrawal symptoms
  • Prescribes medications that lessen the impact of withdrawal and suppresses craving
  • Ensures the individual is stabilized physically and able to undertake alcohol treatment programming

A Personalized Alcohol Treatment



All alcohol treatment care is personalized to meet the needs of residents. Each individual can require different levels of care when it comes to alcohol rehab. What is an effective approach as addiction treatment for one may not yield the same results for another. You are dealing with individuals. The program is tailored to meet the needs of each individual resident. Throughout the treatment stay, clients undergo many different therapy types and recovery elements. The reaction of clients to these treatments goes into personalizing treatment further for each resident.

When a new resident is admitted into the alcohol treatment program at Cirque Lodge, they are assigned a primary counselor that works with them throughout their stay. Primary counselors are professionally licensed for offering alcohol and drug treatment therapies. This counselor works individually with the resident on their personalized alcohol treatment plan. They are available for one-on-one therapy sessions with clients, as well as family sessions during our effective family program. Primary counselors are also available to help residents in preparing for recovery. They help them in preparing the best course of action for a continuing plan for the recovery process.

Alcohol addiction does not have to be the end. An alcoholic or drug rehab stay can mean a new beginning here at Cirque Lodge. We provide dedicated and effective service for the treatment of the disease of addiction. If you or a loved one has a drinking problem, or an alcohol addiction, it is never too early to get them the help that they need.
