Too much alcohol is unhealthy; everybody knows this. Unfortunately, many people suffering from alcohol abuse believe they don’t need treatment. While some recognize that the habit poses threat to their health, most don’t see that it can also take a toll on their relationships and career.
If you’re one of these people, start analyzing your situation. You’ll never get out of it if you continue with the habit and pretend everything’s fine. Here are some of the top signs you need alcohol rehab:
Neglect of Home, Work, and Societal Responsibilities
Frequent drinking cause you to perform daily responsibilities poorly. If you’ve been skipping out commitments at work or neglecting your children because you’re hung over, then you might need the help of an expert.
If you’ve been arrested several times for DUI or for drunk disorderly conduct, then you’re neglecting your duties as a citizen. This is another sign that rehab is badly needed.
Alcohol Use in Physically Dangerous Environment
Another sign of abuse is drinking alcohol in places and situations where you’re not supposed to. The most common examples is drinking and driving. Operating machinery or using dangerous chemicals and substances while intoxicated is yet another sign. In worse cases, the abuser even mixes prescription medication with alcohol, without the order of a doctor.
Drinking to Escape from Stress
Most cases of alcohol abuse start when facing too much stress. While drinking moderate amounts can somehow relieves stress, trying to drown your problems and anxiety through alcohol will have more distressing results. You know you need treatment when you develop the tendency to get drunk after a tiring day of work or whenever you have an argument with the people around you.
If you’ve been seeing these signs on yourself or someone dear to you, the wisest thing to do is seek the help of an expert. Rehab programs are always open for people like you, and will help you overcome your addictions and start anew.
