Alcohol Addiction affects over 15 million adults 18 years and older each year in the United States. Struggling with alcohol addiction can be devastating to the individual and the close family and friends that are involved. It is always imperative to seek medical intervention prior to stopping drinking alcohol due to the increased risk of seizures. Seizures can often be prevented by entering a medical monitored alcohol detox and rehab where medication and medical care will be provided around the clock.

Alcohol Addiction and Treatment Options
Depending on the severity of the alcohol abuse and dependency, there are a few different treatment options that are available. For the less severe forms of alcoholism, cognitive behavioral therapy and outpatient programs may be an option to help someone recover. However, often times detox, inpatient, and residential treatment is required to help a person cleanse the body and have enough time away from stress and triggers to start healing the mind.
