Addiction changes the person who is addicted in profound ways. It transforms every relationship. In fact, it impacts each aspect of our lives. To make matters worse, often, the drug of choice is pervasive in your community. It may even be used, but not abused, in the household. Simply avoiding all contact isn’t always an option. So something needs to change in the mental state of the one suffering from addiction. When it does, they’ll find it easier to stay on the recovery path. That’s where addiction treatment therapy at Oceanfront Recovery in Laguna Beach, CA, can help.
Tens of millions of Americans misuse alcohol every year. Because alcohol is legal, easily available, and present in most social settings, it is easily abused. There are several ways alcohol addiction can develop. While many think that having an alcohol use disorder means that a person drinks to excess all the time, it can just as easily be someone who binge drinks regularly or someone who only drinks a little but consistently. All of these forms of alcohol use disorder can lead to an addiction. However, through addiction treatment therapy, those suffering from alcohol addiction can learn how to manage their addiction for long-lasting healing in recovery.
