Alcohol

 

Alcohol Addiction is a disease that includes alcohol craving and difficulty controlling one’s drinking on any given occasion. People struggling with alcohol tend to feel a strong need or urge to drink hoping for the positive effects that may come of that. However, over time changes in the brain circuitry occur due to repeated alcohol use they often notice that with time they need more and more of the drink to achieve that positive effect, finding it difficult to stop once they have started drinking. Some might even experience withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, sweating, shakiness, and anxiety when they are not drinking.

 

Excessive alcohol use –regular or binge drinking- both can have negative consequences on the individual including accidents, family and work problems. For those who are dependent on the alcohol withdrawal from it requires professional monitoring to avoid any medical complications.

 

At EXIST, we help our clients understand and recover by working on both the symptoms and the underlying issues causing the addiction. We offer treatment in the form of one-on-one sessions as well as group therapy.

 

After a thorough initial assessment we help our clients find the treatment that suits their needs. Being extensively networked with other treatment facilities, clients may also be referred to detoxification centres and residential programs according to their needs.
