Signs of Alcohol Addiction
Patients and families who are dealing with an alcohol addiction may find it hard to manage. At NorthShore, our team is dedicated to providing the best treatment and support for those battling addiction.
It may be hard to detertime when alcohol consumption becomes alcoholism. Some signs of alcohol addiction include:
- Feeling that you need to drink to have a good time
- Loss of interest in past times and personal life
- A family history of alcohol addiction
- Feeling the need to hide alcohol consumption
- The need to drink increasing amounts of alcohol to continue to feel its effects
- Increased relationship problems that stem from excessive drinking
Addiction and Substance Abuse Treatment
The patient is guided through recovery starting with an assessment to determine their needs. Once the appropriate level of care is determined, the patient is engaged in an individualized substance abuse treatment program that includes the expertise of a multidisciplinary staff. We offer a Partial Program, including Outpatient detoxification if needed, and a Day Intensive Outpatient Program. Patients have access to psychiatric monitoring throughout treatment and weekly individual sessions with their primary counselor to ensure that their needs are being addressed. We encourage family involvement and offer a strong family component that is built into our substance abuse treatment program. The Doreen E. Chapman Center provides professional care with a focus on wellness that gives people a renewed sense of hope that recovery is achievable.
