Alcohol DetoxAlcohol remains one of the most common addictions today. Consumption usually begins in a social setting then spirals out of control to become a daily habit. Alcoholics who do not get help soon enough often suffer from health issues such as liver damage, cardiovascular concerns, even brain damage, in addition to a myriad of other physical and emotional problems that are a direct result of their battle with alcoholism.
Detoxing is when a toxic substance is completely removed from the body. An alcohol detox program is a vital first step in recovery for the majority of people suffering from alcoholism. Detox cleanses the body and rids it of the alcohol; alcohol rehab builds new ways to manage the life that led to the abuse of alcohol. Both go hand in hand to increase the chances of a successful, lasting recovery.
Recovery begins at our specialized alcohol detox center in New Jersey

A comprehensive alcohol rehab approach
Because detoxification does not stop the craving for alcohol, recovery is often difficult to maintain without rehabilitation; that’s where the harder work begins because while the body may be rid of the toxins, the desire for alcohol still lingers. The key to sober living after detox is rehab. Rehab programs, whether on an inpatient or outpatient basis, will address the various ways alcohol has become an addiction, and the residual effects of its abuse. To reduce cravings and diminish the perceived pleasure of alcohol consumption, medications may be prescribed as part of the detox and treatment. Beyond the physical aspects of the addiction, the key to living sober will require therapies designed to help patients confront the psychological aspects of their disease. Working through detox and rehab may not be easy, but it is absolutely worth it to live a sober life.
