Substance abuse and addiction is a disease not a choice. Despite popular opinion, this is true for individuals struggling with alcohol dependency. Getting the right treatment for your alcoholism is important. Landmark Recovery’s alcohol rehab center in the Las Vegas area offers a variety of treatment options to help you get on the path to success. We combine science-backed therapies with a personalized treatment plan, detox, and intensive outpatient programs to maximize you or a loved one’s chances of achieving long-term recovery.
The excessive abuse of alcohol has led to severe consequences for the residents of Nevada. There were more than 1,000 alcohol-related deaths in 2017, 1 including 87 Nevadans who were killed in automobile crashes that involved a drunk driver. 2 In Clark County, 28% of all driving fatalities involve an alcohol-impaired driver. 3
Half of all Nevada residents over the age of 12 currently drink alcohol and nearly 23% report past-month binge drinking, a dangerous pattern of alcohol abuse defined as drinking five or more drinks on the same occasion. 4 Binge drinking is even more common in Las Vegas, as more than a quarter of all residents living within the Las Vegas-Paradise metropolitan area have participated in binge alcohol use at least once during the past month. 5 Almost a third of all young adults (aged 18-25) in Nevada report recent binge drinking, the highest rate of any age group in the Silver State. 4
Alcohol abuse is a serious problem among Nevada’s high school population. More than 1 in 4 are current drinkers while 1 in 32 have consumed more than 10 drinks in the past 30 days. 1 Overall, more than 60% of Nevada high school students have tried alcohol at least once.
According to findings from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, approximately 1 in 18 Nevada residents suffers from an addiction to alcohol. 4 Alcoholism is most prevalent among young adults, with more than 1 in 10 meeting the criteria for a diagnosis of alcohol use disorder.
Unfortunately, the vast majority of Nevadans struggling with alcoholism do not seek help from an alcohol rehab center or receive the necessary treatment. Although admissions data show that 1 in 6 individuals entering Nevada rehab centers receive treatment for alcoholism, 6 it is estimated that nearly 94% of Nevada residents who are in need of alcohol rehab do not receive any form of treatment. 4
If you or someone you care about is struggling with an alcohol problem, help is out there. There are several Las Vegas alcohol rehab programs to choose from, but many do not provide the specialized care and support that are needed to sustain long-term recovery from alcohol addiction. Landmark Recovery of Las Vegas offers evidence-based alcohol rehab treatment programs that will help you quit drinking and stay sober.
All clients receive a complete physical and mental health assessment from our medical team upon arrival at our Las Vegas alcohol rehab center. You will then be provided with a personalized treatment plan tailored to meet your specific needs. Depending on the severity of alcohol addiction and any unique challenges (such as co-occurring mental health issues), your rehab plan may include entry into our residential treatment, partial hospitalization program, or intensive outpatient services.
Before the start of any alcohol rehab treatment, you must first stop drinking and go through detox.
If you are physically dependent on alcohol, you will likely experience withdrawal as all traces of the drug are flushed from your system during the detox process. Typically, the most severe withdrawal symptoms are experienced within the first few days of having your last drink. Common symptoms of withdrawal from alcohol include: 7
The abrupt cessation of alcohol use can cause the central nervous system to go into shock. A small number of people going through alcohol withdrawal may experience seizures or delirium tremens, a serious complication that is characterized by hallucinations, disorientation, fast heart rate, elevated blood pressure, hyperthermia, agitation, and excessive sweating. 7
Due to the severe pain, discomfort, and potentially life-threatening medical concerns associated with alcohol withdrawal, we recommend undergoing detox at a professional alcohol rehab center (rather than quitting cold turkey at home). Landmark Recovery of Las Vegas’s alcohol rehab center offers medically supervised detox services to help manage the negative symptoms of alcohol withdrawal. Our trained clinical specialists will keep you safe and comfortable while monitoring you around-the-clock for any signs of potential complications. You may also be prescribed certain medications that can reduce cravings and minimize withdrawal symptoms. 8
There are currently three medications that are approved by the FDA to help people stop or reduce their drinking and prevent relapse. These drugs, which can be prescribed during the detox process and used throughout the therapy phase to support recovery, include: 9
Once detox is completed and you are medically stable, you will be ready to begin the therapy phase of your treatment. The cornerstone of Landmark Recovery’s alcohol rehab program is counseling (individual, group, and family) and science-backed behavioral therapy. Participation in therapy sessions will help you identify the root causes of your alcohol addiction, repair broken relationships, change the behaviors that lead to drinking, and learn how to effectively cope with triggers that can lead to relapse. Alcohol rehab may also include support group meetings, medication management, health and wellness education, mindfulness and meditation-based therapies, and a variety of recreational activities.
