Understanding Alcohol Addiction:

Alcohol addiction is a chronic disease marked by uncontrolled consumption of alcohol despite its negative impact on one’s health, social relationships, and overall quality of life. It’s a multifaceted disorder with a multitude of causes including genetic, psychological, environmental, and social factors. At Crestone Wellness, we recognize these complexities and strive to deliver a treatment approach that tackles addiction from all angles, leading to more effective and long-lasting recovery.

The Dangers of Alcohol Addiction:

Alcohol addiction, also known as alcoholism or Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD), is a serious and life-threatening condition. It’s a disease that involves compulsive alcohol use, loss of control over alcohol intake, and a negative emotional state when not drinking. The dangers of alcohol addiction are numerous and far-reaching, impacting nearly every aspect of an individual’s life.

Physical Health Risks

Long-term alcohol abuse can cause a multitude of health problems, including liver disease, heart problems, stroke, and various types of cancer. Alcohol can also damage the brain, leading to memory loss, cognitive decline, and mental health disorders such as depression and anxiety. Additionally, alcohol weakens the immune system, making an individual more susceptible to diseases.

Mental Health Risks

Alcohol addiction often co-occurs with mental health conditions. This can lead to a cycle where an individual uses alcohol to relieve mental health symptoms, but the alcohol use worsens those same symptoms. Prolonged alcohol use can increase the risk of depression, anxiety disorders, and suicidal thoughts or actions.

Social and Relationship Issues

Alcohol addiction can strain relationships with family and friends, leading to social isolation. It can also contribute to marital conflict, domestic violence, and breakdowns in family structure.

Legal Consequences

Individuals struggling with alcohol addiction may face legal issues such as DUI charges, public intoxication, or legal consequences related to violent behavior while under the influence.

Economic Consequences

The financial cost of alcohol addiction can be significant. From the cost of the alcohol itself to job loss due to decreased productivity or job dismissal, these financial stressors can lead to severe economic instability.

Risk of Overdose

According to the CDC, there are 2,200 alcohol poisoning deaths each year in the US. This typically happens when a large amount of alcohol is consumed in a short amount of time, causing the body's processing abilities to be overwhelmed.

I cannot thank Crestone Wellness enough. Addiction had taken over my life again and I was completely hopeless, but from my very first phone call with one of the owners, to the staff admitting and taking care of me on a daily basis, to my post treatment follow up calls, I experienced nothing but authentic patience, love, and support.

Effective Therapies for Alcohol Addiction Treatment at Crestone Wellness:

At Crestone Wellness, we employ a range of evidence-based therapies to address alcohol addiction. Our personalized approach to recovery acknowledges that there’s no one-size-fits-all solution.
