Because they begin with the knowledge that addiction is a brain disease, they employ the latest medical advances to combat the havoc wreaked on the brain’s neurotransmitters. This helps to restore the serotonin levels and combat craving and give the brain a chance to heal so that recovery can move forward.
Alcohol Addiction Treatment
The Enterhealth Approach
At Enterhealth Ranch, our team of board-certified addiction psychiatrists, physicians, neuropsychologists and other experts takes a holistic approach to treating alcohol addiction. They combine their training and expertise with the latest evidence-based therapeutic and pharmacological techniques to help those suffering from alcohol addiction regain control, sobriety and stability in their lives. Proven to be more effective than traditional addiction treatment programs, the Enterhealth team developed a science-based set of treatments and protocols based on the latest medical research from the National Institutes of Health identifying alcohol and drug dependency as a treatable chronic brain disease.
What is alcohol addiction?
Alcohol dependence, or alcohol addiction, 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 addiction 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 there are recognizable alcohol withdrawal symptoms, which include:
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 – alcohol 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 inpatient rehab for alcohol addiction better at Enterhealth?
The Enterhealth Ranch evidence-based inpatient rehab 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.

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 and depression, as well as other psychological issues such as anxiety or obsessive-compulsive disorder.
