The Guide to Understanding Alcohol Detox

The social acceptance of alcohol abuse makes drinking one of the most commonly abused drugs in the United States. In fact, more people are addicted to alcohol than to all illicit substances combined. Many people use alcohol to cope with stress; it is normalized in our culture. But when alcohol consumption becomes an addiction, it interferes with every aspect of your daily life.

Alcohol addiction is a disease so it’s important to approach this addiction like you would any other — with a safe and stable detox.

That’s why we created the Guide to Understanding Alcohol Detox.

In the Guide: Alcohol Use Disorder in America and Our Industry-Leading Detox Program

In 2022, 29.5 million people in the US over the age of 12 suffered from some form of Alcohol Use Disorder. That’s 10.5% of all people over 12 in the US.

It is also estimated there are more than 140,000 deaths each year that can be attributed to excessive alcohol use. This makes alcohol a leading cause of preventable death in the US, behind tobacco use, poor diet and lack of exercise, and illegal drug use.

If you or someone you know is suffering from Alcohol Use Disorder, we’re here to help. Here’s more about what you’ll find in our free Guide to Understanding Alcohol Detox:

How Did We Get Here?

The desensitization of excessive alcohol consumption is pervasive throughout the United States. This social acceptance makes the addictive nature of alcohol, and Alcohol Use Disorder, dangerously easy to ignore—but how did we reach this point?

Choosing a Detox Method

Detoxing from alcohol on your own is riddled with uncertainty and risks. It can even be fatal if handled incorrectly. It is universally recommended to seek out professional help. Learn about the most common alcohol detox options.

The Right Type of Support

Detoxification without appropriate follow up and treatment is almost always unsuccessful. We encourage all of our patients to find a treatment program that will best suit their needs. Learn about the types of treatment modalities.
