Symptoms of Alcoholism

There are a number of symptoms of alcoholism, and it is important to know what some of the more common ones are. These symptoms can quickly sneak up on a person, making it all the more crucial that you are able to recognize them early on.

Your drinking is interfering with your work

If you find that you are going to work intoxicated or feel as though you can no longer get through an entire shift without drinking, you most likely have a problem. Many alcoholics end up getting fired from their jobs because they come into work drunk. When you find yourself drinking just so you can do your job, it is most likely time to start seeking help. Alcoholism almost always negatively impacts a person’s professional life, and the last thing you want is to lose your job. If you think you might be an alcoholic, seek alcohol detox treatment at Detox of South Florida, or another nearby Addiction treatment center.

You feel guilty after drinking

If you feel a sense of guilt after drinking, it is likely that you are experiencing one of the symptoms of alcoholism. Most people who do not have a problem with alcohol don’t feel any guilt whatsoever after they drink because they do so in moderation. If your drinking has gotten to the point where you feel bad about it, you probably have an issue with it that you need to address as soon as possible.

Feeling a Strong and Frequent Urge to Drink Alcohol

If you frequently feel a strong urge to drink, you may want to consider the possibility that you have a problem. While it’s perfectly normal to be “in the mood” to drink, there is a big difference between that and an all-consuming urge that you can’t seem to resist. Most people feel like having a drink sometimes, but it’s only when it becomes a strong and frequent urge that you have a problem or are at risk of developing one.

You lie about your drinking

Another common symptom of alcoholism is lying about one’s own drinking. If you find that you are constantly lying about drinking less than you actually do to people a lot, you could have a full blown problem. It is not uncommon for alcoholics to lie to family, friends, and coworkers about how much they drink because they are embarrassed by the truth. Think about if you have ever lied about how much you drink, and how often you have lied.

Your drinking has caused relationship problems

It is fairly common for someone who is an alcoholic to experience serious relationship problems due to their excessive drinking. If you are currently struggling in your relationship because your partner is concerned about your drinking, it may be time to admit you have a problem. Have you had relationships in the past that were ruined because of your drinking? This is a very common problem among alcoholics, and it only gets worse over time.

Those who have a drinking problem need to seek professional help as soon as possible. While you may be an alcoholic, that doesn’t mean you have to be forever. If any of the above symptoms seem to resonate with you, it is important to consider getting help for your problem.

If you still have a few more questions, take a look at our FAQ’s below:

  • Research studies on addiction treatment have shown that some alcohol and substance addiction treatment and follow-up procedures are more successful than others. At Detox of South Florida, we emphasize on using the best approaches in alcohol or drug detox.

  • Our goal is to ensure that all our patients regain their physical and mental states of health. Our treatment is therefore tailored to address each patient’s unique conditions. The treatment involves a combination of detoxification procedures such as opiate detox, alcohol detox, and heroin detox, just to mention a few, with other intervention procedures such as group and individual therapy, relapse prevention education, after-care planning, and in-house completion programs aimed at ensuring long-term sobriety and prevention of relapses.

  • Every patient has his or her unique type and level of addiction which is why the treatment period will normally vary from one individual to another. While some patients go through a 30-day rehab program, others will require a 60-day or 90-day program to recover from alcohol or drug addiction. The time it takes to recover will depend on the assessment report provided by the assigned medical professional who evaluates your case.

  • As the best rehab in Florida, we believe a relapse should not be viewed as a failure but rather as a sign to help you get back on track by making necessary adjustments to your treatment.

  • Our rates generally depend on the services provided. The overall cost will be determined by factors such as professional treatment fees, facilities, food, and utilities.

  • Unlike other addiction treatment centers across the country, at Detox of South Florida, we take your treatment and recovery process very seriously. Your treatment against addiction is a comprehensive process that may be affected by unwarranted interruptions. All visitations must, therefore, be approved well in advance by the treating therapist. We do this to ensure that your safety, focus on recovery, and stability are maintained at all times. The only visitors allowed are significant members of your family and close friends.
