The type of alcohol treatment you receive depends upon the severity of your alcoholism and your resources. Generally speaking most people who are alcohol dependant will require a medically monitored alcohol detox program and a stay in an alcohol rehab program.

If a person is using drugs in conjunction with alcohol, alcohol detox may take a little longer and can be a bit more complicated.

Dealing with Dual Diagnosis in Lakewood Twp
Feeling lost and lonely is an understatement for many people battling a dual diagnosis. Suffering from a mental illness, along with an addiction to drugs and/or alcohol, can be too much for some people to handle.
When you try a drug for the first time, it produces exaggerated effects. Some of these might be psychological in nature; however, a majority of the effects are drug induced. As you continue to engage in the activity of taking drugs and enjoying its pleasurable effects, you begin to reach a state where the dosage does not produce the required effects. This is when you develop what is called a ‘tolerance’ for the drug.
Under this phenomenon, your body grows accustomed to the drug. Now, whenever you take the dosage that you are accustomed to, your body does not experience the usual high. This of course forces you to increase your drug intake. And the vicious cycle of addiction begins because now you have to continually increase your dosage just to feel a regular high.
Now that you are physiologically dependent on the drug, the chemical balance of your body is changed. At this point, you will realize that you need the drug. This will scare you because you do not want to be dependent on it, so the instant reaction is to stop. Unfortunately, this only further aggravates your health condition because you start to suffer from what are called, ‘withdrawal symptoms’.
If you want to find a way to better manage your illness and stop drinking and/or using drugs, there is help for you.
