Alcohol Rehab in Richmond

Alcohol Treatment

Getting over an alcohol addiction can be tough for most folks. Landmark Recovery of Richmond is here to help. Our effective treatment can get you back on your feet in no time, ready to enjoy a life living beyond your addictions.

What is alcohol and how is it bad?

Alcohol is best understood as beer, wine, or liquor. It can cause severe liver damage over time to individuals who drink heavily on a regular basis. Almost 15 million Americans have an alcohol addiction, which is formally called an alcohol use disorder. The CDC defines anything beyond a couple of drinks a day as excessive drinking.

Excessive alcohol use includes binge drinking and heavy drinking. Binge drinking is classified as 5+ drinks for men and 4+ drinks for women, usually within the course of 2 hours or less; heavy drinking is classified as 15+ drinks per week for men and 8+ drinks per week for women, not necessarily within a short time frame, making it much more dangerous for the drinker’s health in the long term.

About 95,000 people die every year from alcohol-related causes. Alcohol is a fine substance to drink if moderation is the key. If moderation is key, then a healthy relationship with alcohol can be maintained while avoiding an alcohol addiction.

Alcohol use and abuse in Virginia

In Virginia, alcohol use hovers around 55% for all age groups above 18 years of age. In terms of alcohol binging, about 22% of all Virginians above the age of 12 participate in this harmful behavior. The worst offending group are those between the ages of 18 to 25, who drink at a rate of 58.33% and binge drink at a rate of 36.08%.

Just over 16% of residents excessively drink in Virginia, making it the 15th most sober state in the country. Being a mostly sober state doesn’t make it zero percent drunk, though. About 5% of all Virginians have an alcohol use disorder, and 5.26% need treatment but simply won’t seek it out. If you’re struggling with a dependence on alcohol, don’t be afraid to reach out—we don’t judge potential patients for alcohol addiction at all.

The Landmark difference

At Landmark Recovery, we offer both residential and outpatient services depending on your level of medical need. 12-step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous are available at our facilities to patients, in addition to multiple types of therapy and counseling. We want to maximize your recovery gains while you’re here, but we also make an alumni program for Landmark Recovery graduates available on a national level.

Treatment for alcohol addiction can be medication-assisted (MAT) or take the form of traditional treatment. You may be offered different types of MAT, including the Sinclair Method, in which you take a pill shortly before being in a situation where alcohol may be present. Every method we offer for treatment is rigorously based on scientific study.
