Alcohol Addiction Treatment
Addiction to alcohol: the Enterhealth treatment approach
Most individuals who are battling alcohol addiction need professional help to recover from their disease. For years, Enterhealth Ranch – based in Dallas, Texas – has used the latest advancements in medicine and therapy to deliver results that are more effective than traditional twelve-step-based residential treatment programs. Based on the latest National Institutes of Health medical research, we utilize proven and effective therapeutic techniques, appropriate medication, and a comprehensive alcohol rehab program to help our patients stop drinking and rebuild their lives.
What is alcohol addiction?
Alcohol addiction, or alcohol dependence, is a chronic and progressive disease that creates a strong need to drink despite repeated social or interpersonal problems such as losing a job, legal trouble, or deteriorating relationships with friends and family. Because alcohol alters the brain’s chemistry and physically affects the deepest parts of the brain, quitting is difficult without help – even for those who are ready to do so. Alcohol addiction generally has a predictable course and recognizable symptoms, including:
- Craving – a strong need or urge to drink alcohol
- Loss of control – not being able to stop drinking alcohol once drinking has begun
- Physical dependence – withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea, sweating, shakiness and anxiety after stopping drinking alcohol
- Tolerance – the need to drink greater amounts of alcohol just to get “high”
Why is residential alcohol addiction treatment at Enterhealth better?
The Enterhealth Ranch evidence-based residential addiction treatment program offers personalized services uniquely tailored to each individual’s place in their recovery journey. Our goal is to help the alcoholic understand what causes their alcohol addiction and give them the tools they need to successfully recover.
We incorporate expert diagnosis, detoxification, scientifically proven use of anti-addiction medications, multiple neurological and psychotherapies, health and nutrition education, and family involvement. Plus, Enterhealth Ranch is the only drug and alcohol treatment center in Dallas/Fort Worth with exclusively private accommodations.
In addition, our full-time, board-certified psychiatrists and high therapist-to-patient ratio enable us to uniquely treat dual-diagnosis patients – those who are dealing with addiction, as well as other psychological issues such as depression, anxiety or obsessive-compulsive disorder.
