Wisconsin

Alcohol abuse in Wisconsin continues to be a problem for many families. Alcohol abuse and dependence stems from the body's gradually inability to tolerate alcohol. Alcohol abuse and dependence is usually a gradual process, whereby the human body loses its ability to deal with even a minimum amount of alcohol. The "dependence on alcohol" comes when even a small amount of alcohol triggers a powerful craving for more and more alcohol and a feeling they need to drink to have fun, relax, etc.

Being dependent upon alcohol, the actual need to drink alcohol is close to alcoholism, but not the same. Not all alcoholics are not necessary alcohol dependent. This is a fine but important distinction. Unlike alcoholism, which has a physical component, alcohol abuse and dependence would be a psychological, rather than strictly a physical phenomenon. People with alcohol abuse and dependence problems feel as though they cannot go without drinking alcohol for more than a few days.

If you are reading this, chances are that you or a loved one suffers from alcohol abuse problems in Wisconsin. Rest assured there is help available in Wisconsin for alcohol abuse. Problem drinking in Wisconsin is reaching epidemic proportions, and alcohol abuse treatment centers are ready to help.

Alcohol abuse is a devastating health issue. It can, and often does ruin family relationships, careers, and lives. Alcohol abuse treatment centers in Wisconsin try to help the problem drinker take responsibility for their actions. Contacting a Wisconsin alcohol abuse treatment center is the best move you can make, whether you are the alcohol abuser, or a loved one. At times, alcohol intervention is necessary, but professionals at alcohol rehab centers can tell you more about that, and if it is possible.

Alcohol abuse treatment programs in Wisconsin vary. Each individual has a plan mapped out specifically for them at the alcohol rehab centers. Plans may include outpatient treatment, or they may be as extensive as residential alcohol rehab, or somewhere in between. Only by speaking with someone at a Wisconsin alcohol abuse treatment facility can you find out what can be done.

Know that there is a way out of the overwhelming desperation felt by the alcohol addict and his family. A new life is waiting for those who reach out. A life that is much brighter than the one you are now living. There are literally tens of thousands of Wisconsin residents who need some type of alcohol rehab. Each alcohol rehab facility in Wisconsin tries to ensure success in any program attempted. Sometimes, the programs require some altering, or tweaking to make them work. Stick with it, and find out how much happier and healthier you can be.

The first step of recovery from alcohol abuse is completing alcohol detox. Don't let the fear of withdrawal stop you from seeking help to alcohol detox. An individual's experience during alcohol detox is dependent upon the quantities of alcohol and other drugs recently consumed, and the number of previous detoxification experiences. 'Kindling,' a combination of cravings for alcohol and physical withdrawal symptoms, is directly related to the long-term changes that occur within the brain's neurons. Kindling also correlates to the number of detoxifications previously experienced, thus leading to a worsening of withdrawal symptoms with time. For this reason, it is important to be carefully assessed by a medical doctor and have a comprehensive alcohol detox plan implemented that includes, but is not limited to, medication.

There is no question learning about staying clean and alcohol abuse greatly improves a person's chances of long term recovery. By going into a Wisconsin alcohol rehab center, a person gains the knowledge, tools and assistance to help them stay clean. Going to an alcohol rehab center is the easiest surest way to stay clean and off drugs for 30 days, which is considered the toughest period of time in recovery. There are all different types of alcohol rehab centers. They vary in size, philosophy, services and the kind of treatment modalities they offer their clientele.

Levels of Alcohol Rehab Centers:

  • Intensive Outpatient Alcohol Rehab: Attending group and individual counseling sessions at a clinic, several times per week
  • Partial Hospitalization: Attending group and individual counseling sessions at a hospital based program, either all morning or all afternoon, 5 times per week.
  • Inpatient Residential Alcohol Rehab: This is where the client stays full time in 24 hr attendance, and the client lives inside the facility. Room and board is usually provided.
  • Long Term, Extended Care Alcohol Rehab: Full time, 24 hr attendance, the same as residential, the difference is in the length or term of the drug program. Long term programs can last anywhere from 90 days to a full year.

Quick Drug Facts

The words "cordial" and "liqueur" are synonymous and refer to liquors made of sweetened spirits flavored with fruits, flowers, roots, or other organic materials.
The idea that alcohol causes nerve cells to "melt" is an old theory, which was once used to help scientists understand how alcohol depresses nerve cell function. "Melting" referred to the action of alcohol on disorganization of the protein and fat molecules of the nerve membrane, causing the ionic pores to be disrupted. This disruption reduced nerve cell firing. Now we know that alcohol only passively affects the nerve membrane, mainly at high doses.
There are many local law enforcement agencies that hold classes where they can test your blood alcohol in different situations. Stay aware of how much you have had and don't be caught drunk driving when it could have been easily avoided.
In 2005, nearly 1.4 million drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics (Department of Justice 2005). That's less than one percent of the 159 million self-reported episodes of alcohol-impaired driving among U.S. adults each year.
