Alcohol Addiction

Meridian HealthCare has over 45 years of experience in successfully treating individuals, of all ages, who have had an issue with alcohol or an alcohol addiction.

According to The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, nearly 88,000 people die from alcohol related causes each year, making it the fourth leading preventable cause of death in the United States.

Many times, an individual’s use of alcohol will begin in a social setting or as a standard way to maintain stress. However, when drinking is no longer social and becomes a means of psychological escape from tension, the continued excessive alcohol consumption can develop into dependence.  This is when a psychological habit becomes a physical dependence, which usually leads to an addiction. The alcoholic physically craves alcohol, and will continue to use it regardless of the disastrous consequences to his or her life — including loss of employment, damage to family relationships and declining health. Without seeking treatment, this downward spiral will inevitably continue.

Since alcoholism is a disease with psychological components, treatment must encompass both the physical and mental state of someone who is suffering from alcoholism.

Meridian HealthCare’s approach to alcohol addiction starts with a comprehensive assessment that looks at all aspects of an individual’s life. Meridian will then create a customized treatment plan that includes programs or services available through Meridian HealthCare that will best address that person’s needs.

If you or a loved one suffers from an addiction to alcohol, there is hope. Meridian has seen many individuals reclaimed and maintained their sobriety for years, even decades.
