Alcohol use disorder affects individuals of all classes, ethnicities, and social groups in every corner of the U.S. If you or a loved one are struggling with a dependency on alcohol or an alcohol use disorder, Landmark Recovery of Denver offers a holistic, individualized approach to alcohol rehabilitation.
Alcohol is one of the most widely available and socially acceptable mind- and mood-altering substances. This can make a growing dependency on alcohol difficult to spot before it begins to negatively impact an individual’s life.
Abusing alcohol shows itself as binge drinking and heavy alcohol use, both of which increase an individual’s risk of bodily injuries and also health problems. The NIAAA defines heavy drinking as consuming more than 4 drinks a day or more than 14 drinks in a week for men. For women, it is consuming more than 3 a day or more than 7 in a week. 1
Over 200 diseases and injury-related conditions are linked to drinking alcohol. Some of the health risks of abusing alcohol include:
Alcohol abuse does not just affect the individual. It also affects the family as a whole. One of the most common reasons a family system does not seek treatment for an individual’s alcohol abuse or growing addiction is because they minimize its impact, thinking, It’s not so bad, or It could be worse. An alcohol problem within a family also increases the risk for substance abuse by other family members. They may also experience mental and physical health problems due to the high stress environment. 2
Your alcohol addiction will not treat itself, but it is possible to begin taking steps to regain control of your life and live beyond your addiction. The next step is to find the right alcohol treatment program, and we believe we are the facility for you.
At Landmark Recovery of Denver, you can first expect to go through our alcohol detox to flush the toxins from your system. Due to the dangerous and unpredictable nature of alcohol withdrawal, our alcohol treatment center offers medically assisted detox services. We use FDA-approved medications like Suboxone and Campral to stabilize you and prevent uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. Our clinical specialists also provide 24/7 monitoring to make sure that you remain safe and comfortable throughout the entire detox process.
Following the completion of alcohol detox, you will be ready to transition into your personalized alcohol treatment program. This is where you will participate in evidence-based behavioral therapies and counseling to identify the false beliefs and underlying thoughts that drive your addiction. You also will learn and develop healthy behaviors and coping skills to prevent relapse and work toward sobriety.
Our approach is a holistic one: we will treat your body, mind, and spirit to help you break free from addiction, and with the larger goal of transformation. You will experience a variety of proven treatments and alternative therapies that will set you up for success post-rehab. And when you leave our facility, we will continue to provide the support you need to stay sober. Learn more about our alumni program here.
