Methods Which Are Used to Treat Alcohol Addiction

Last few years, researchers remarkably introduce some important treatment methodologies. After a long decade, they found amazing way to cure alcoholism.

Now a day all progressive rehabilitation centers takes the advantages of those therapies. Now a day’s doctors identifying the probable reason of high level of drinking or alcoholism. They find “helplessness” as a main cause of alcoholism.

They classify the mainstream alcoholism treatment under two categories. Those are – Holistic and medicinal treatment.

According to World health organization – “Health is more than the absence of disease. Health is a state of optimal well-being.” Also American Holistic Health Association (AHHA) develops a booklet with the guidelines for willingness to start a new life beyond alcoholism. Perhaps – alcoholism s not fully curable but proper treatment can offer a better life to an addict.

Scientists invent new horizon of alcoholism treatment. NIAAA supported scientists develop detoxicating (i.e. a safe way to remove alcohol from human body using medicine) such as disulfiram (Antabuse®), acamprosate like anti alcohol curving drugs. Using those drugs (with prescribed forms by medical practitioner) addict slowly loose his interest on drinking.

In behavioral treatment – most important is individual and group counseling. During this counseling or better to say the recovery session need support from family members and friends; because in most cases addict needs a marital counseling. Basically these promising type therapies teach to addict – how to identify the high drinking situation. It’s a learning process through which addict can empower him / her.

The holistic approach also includes a good and restricted food and drinking habit. Mr. Bill Wilson who is a founder member of AA emphasizes on this alternative approach. According to his therapy all grains like food like corn, grapes and barley he restricts.

To ensure their treatment process some of the health care initiatives include music and yoga into the therapy; although, most of the alcohol rehabilitation center uses both the therapies. NIAAA researchers initiated clinical trial of both treatments, and try to find out the best out comes from those trials. As an addition, the researchers find the effect of alcohol in vital parts of the human body like brain, stomach and mouth.

12-Step Facilitation Therapy – also a recommended for alcoholism, this is basically a peer support program completely supervised by medical practitioner and therapy specialist. During this therapy sessions patients should learn the trigger matters of drinking, manage negative moods and so on.

Most important is, all rehab centers offer a short term and some specific treatment methodologies to cure the addict but main key of success is still on the addict’s hand. Because all these are value based program so the addict should continue the process for a long till he is not completely cured.
