Getting the right treatment for your alcoholism is critical. Our Landmark Recovery facility in the Oklahoma City area offers a variety of treatment options to help you get on the path to success.
Alcohol abuse is a major health issue in the state of Oklahoma. According to data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, alcohol is the most frequently abused substance in the Sooner State. Almost half of all Sooners (aged 12 and older) report current alcohol use, and nearly 1 in 4 have engaged in harmful binge drinking during the past month. 1 Unfortunately, binge drinking is a common practice among many young Oklahomans. Survey results show that more than 1 in 3 young adults (aged 18 to 25) in Oklahoma report past-month binge drinking, while nearly 1 in 5 high school seniors have reported binge drinking in the past 2 weeks. 2
The excessive abuse of alcohol has led to severe consequences for Oklahoma residents. In 2017, there were 119 unintentional overdose deaths in the state involving alcohol poisoning. 3 During the same year, 171 persons were killed in Oklahoma in automobile crashes involving a drunk driver. 4
Alcohol addiction, also known alcoholism or alcohol use disorder (AUD), is a complicated, chronic brain disease that is characterized by an unhealthy pattern of uncontrolled and problematic alcohol use.5 According to recent data, about 1 in 17 Oklahoma residents currently meet the criteria for a diagnosis of AUD. 1 Statewide, alcohol addiction surpasses drug addiction by an average of 7.5 to 1, meaning that for every person with a drug addiction in Oklahoma there are more than seven people struggling with alcoholism. 6 Alcohol addiction is even more common among young adults, with 1 in 10 Sooners aged 18-25 years old currently suffering from alcoholism. 1
During the last year there were 1,731 admissions to Oklahoma addiction treatment facilities related to alcohol, accounting for 1 out of every 8 admissions in 2019. 7 Unfortunately, it is reported that less than 6% of Oklahomans in need of alcohol treatment actually receive any form of treatment. 1 The Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services estimates that nearly 140,000 Oklahomans over the age 18, about 5% of the state population, are in desperate need of treatment for alcohol addiction. 6
The alcohol treatment programs at Landmark Recovery of Oklahoma City will help you quit drinking and stay sober. Your treatment plan will be personalized to meet your individual needs, and during your initial medical assessment we will consider the short-term and long-term goals needed for you to achieve wellness and recovery. Depending on the severity of your alcoholism, treatment may include inpatient services or entry into one of our outpatient programs.
Alcohol detoxification (or alcohol detox) is a critical first step to recovery and will be required prior to entry into either our inpatient or outpatient alcohol treatment center. During this process all traces of alcohol will be flushed out of your system, preparing the body and mind for rehabilitation. The Landmark Recovery alcohol treatment center in OKC offers medically supervised detox services to help you deal with the uncomfortable and potentially life-threatening symptoms that are associated with alcohol withdrawal.
Alcohol withdrawal symptoms typically appear within two hours of having your last drink, and most painful symptoms will usually subside within a week. Our trained clinicians will closely monitor your physical response to withdrawal and promptly address any complications that may arise, including seizures, extreme hallucinations, and delirium tremens. 8 During the alcohol detox process we may also administer certain medications that can help you get through the pain, discomfort, and cravings that are often associated with alcohol withdrawal.
Following the completion of detox, you will be transitioned into one of our science-backed, evidence-based alcohol treatment programs in Oklahoma City. You will attend a variety of individual, family, and group counseling sessions and undergo cognitive behavioral therapy sessions that help teach new habits and behaviors to help prevent relapse. We will also provide you with medication management as well as the opportunity to participate in support group meetings, health and wellness education, mindfulness and meditation-based therapies, and a variety of exercise and recreational activities.
