Found in wine, liquor, and beer, alcohol is a common component of many social gatherings and celebrations. Alcohol, or ethyl alcohol, is created by fermenting sugars, yeast, and starches. When consumed, alcohol can induce feelings of relaxation, gregariousness, and wellbeing. The substance is a depressant, meaning it reduces the activity of the central nervous system.
While many women are able to drink in moderation, many others struggle to keep their drinking under control. If a woman abuses alcohol over time, she may develop an alcohol use disorder (AUD), which is commonly known as alcoholism. An AUD is a dangerous condition that can have severe negative effects on a person’s life and, if left untreated, can even be fatal. Thankfully, the effects can be avoided when care at a professional alcohol addiction treatment center and rehab is sought.
At The Rose of Newport Beach, we believe that overcoming AUD should be a battle no woman fights alone. Since 2006, our multidisciplinary team has provided quality treatment and rehab for women with AUDs who come to our center, and we are committed to the goal of giving each woman the best possible chance to live a substance-free life.
Helping a Loved One or Family Member Get Alcohol Addiction Treatment
As difficult as it is for a person to struggle with AUD, it can be just as painful to watch a loved one struggle with this persistent and pervasive disorder. You have likely felt a range of emotions in response to your loved one’s AUD and may have even felt completely powerless to help. It is important, however, for you to remember that you can make a positive difference in your loved one’s life. When thinking about how to help your loved one, consider the following options:
- Research treatment options at alcohol abuse rehab centers for your loved one. Finding a treatment center or rehab that treats alcoholism and is a good fit for your loved one can be an important step in helping her in her journey towards lifelong sobriety, so spend some time looking into various treatment options and making a list of centers that may be a good fit.
- Learn about AUD. There are many resources for learning about AUD, such as reputable websites, organizations such as Alcoholics Anonymous, and experienced treatment professionals. Spend time researching AUD, and in doing so, you will likely become a more effective support to your loved one.
- Keep an open dialogue with your loved one. Share your concerns with her openly and nonjudgmentally and try your best to listen patiently to her responses. Above all, remain patient with her and continue to reinforce your care for her.
Why Consider Treatment at The Rose of Newport Beach
If left untreated, AUD can disrupt nearly all areas of a person’s life. Poor occupational performance, job loss, and resulting financial strain are possible, as is strain on relationships, divorce, separation, estrangement, loss of child custody, and even social isolation. AUD even affects a user’s own mind and body. It can cause organ damage, cirrhosis of the liver, cognitive impairment, memory difficulties, and it can result in the emergence or worsening of mental health symptoms. As with any drug, the risk of a potentially-fatal overdose, known as alcohol poisoning, is always a possibility. Fortunately, however, it is possible to avoid falling victim to the negative effects of alcohol with prompt, effective treatment from a quality alcohol addiction rehab center such as The Rose of Newport Beach.
