Knowing When It’s Time To Go To an Alcohol Treatment Facility

In theory, getting sober is simple. All you have to do is stop drinking. However, simple doesn’t always equal easy. You may have started to rely on drinking as your primary coping mechanism. Drinking may be so interwoven with your life that you may not remember or know how to live without drinking. You may have attempted to get sober on your own and found yourself unable to do so. Whether you’re having a hard time giving up alcohol or needing extra support during those early days of sobriety, an alcohol treatment facility can give you the help you need. 

Laguna View Detox provides a beautiful, intimate setting for you to end your relationship with alcohol. We understand how hard it is to break free from alcohol, and we’re here to support you on your journey.


Signs I Have a Problem With Alcohol

There are many discussions lately around alcohol use and the terminology we use to talk about alcohol problems. Traditionally, one would be classified as either an alcoholic or a “normal drinker.” These days there are many more shades of grey with new terminology and new attitudes. Instead of alcoholism, many now say alcohol use disorder (AUD) or substance use disorder (SUD). Rather than asking if you’ve hit your rock bottom or if you’re an alcoholic, you might instead take a good hard look at how your alcohol use is impacting your life. Alcohol commercials show happy, shiny, healthy people enjoying a few drinks and living their best life. But is that the reality for you? Take a good look at your alcohol use and ask yourself a few questions such as: 

  • Have you been unable to quit drinking or cut down on your drinking?
  • Have you found yourself drinking more than you intended?
  • Is your drinking causing you health problems?
  • Is your drinking or being sick after drinking interfering with your life?
  • Is your drinking affecting your relationships or your career?
  • Has anyone in your life asked you to quit drinking?


Answering yes to some or all of these questions is an indication that you may have a problem with alcohol. In the end, the most crucial question is about how alcohol is affecting your ability to live your life. 


When Should I Go To an Alcohol Treatment Facility?

If you take an honest look at your alcohol use and determine that you have a problem, it may be time to go to an alcohol treatment facility. This is especially true if you have been drinking regularly and have found yourself unable to stop. Depending on how often and how much you drink, you are at risk of experiencing alcohol withdrawal. Withdrawal symptoms can be mild symptoms such as irritability, difficulty sleeping, and difficulty focusing.  Alcohol detox can lead to seizures, delirium tremens (DTs), and even death. For this reason, you must be honest about how much and how often you drink when you seek help. The staff at an alcohol treatment facility will monitor you closely and administer comfort medications to ensure you detox safety.
