Oftentimes, seeking help for some form of addiction or substance abuse is very tough personally. Landmark Recovery of Las Vegas is here to help you with your alcohol rehab using evidence-based treatments and multiple therapeutic paths forward. With Landmark’s services, we can help you achieve a goal of real, lasting sobriety from the moment you walk through our doors to the day you graduate to alumni status.
In a 2016 study by the WHO, they found that 7.7% of adults in the United States were alcohol dependent, which is the medical term used to refer to not being able to function without some form of alcoholic beverage. 1 The CDC calls it excessive drinking, which causes significant health problems if the habit persists over the long term. 2 According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, 17 million adults in the US have an alcohol use disorder (AUD).
Excessive drinking presents itself as either binge drinking, which is 4 drinks for women and 5 for men on a single occasion, or heavy drinking, which is 8+ drinks for women and 15+ for men in a single week. However, the vast majority (up to 90%) of excessive drinkers aren’t alcohol dependent. 3 This doesn’t necessarily imply there isn’t a problem with a consistent habit of heavy drinking, which Landmark is equipped to help patients work past.
In Nevada specifically, as of 2017, 19.3% of Nevadans participate in excessive drinking, with 6% of adults having an AUD. In addition to this, 1.8% of Nevada youth (12-17) have an AUD. 4 In 2014, SAMHSA’s state-based Nevada Behavioral Health Barometer reported that 36.5% of substance abuse treatment patients were enrolled in a program of some kind solely because of alcohol, with 44.1% being enrolled for both an AUD and drug use simultaneously. Between 2009 and 2013, an average of 6.9% of adults aged 21 and older engaged in heavy alcohol use. 5 In 2018, 16.76% of Nevadans under 21 reported imbibing to some degree. 49.23% of all Nevadans above the age of 12 consume alcohol in a month. 6
At Landmark Recovery, our goal is to effectively treat patients and ensure they can carry on in their day-to-day lives with lasting recovery in mind. At our clinics, we ensure that every patient is well cared for, comfortable, and managed by trained professionals throughout their recovery process. Once the detox portion of the stay has concluded, we ensure every patient has access to a wide variety of therapies and counseling, both individually and with family.
While at Landmark’s Las Vegas facility, you may or may not be prescribed one or more different medications to assist with your alcohol rehab and withdrawal process on your path to lasting sobriety. Some of these medications may include naltrexone, acamprosate, or disulfiram. 7 Our programs and treatments are evidence-based, so we use the best treatment methods available to us. Landmark provides the structure needed to offer a holistic, well-rounded program for patients at every step of their path.
