Alcohol Abuse Treatment in Newport Beach

Alcohol abuse often goes unnoticed for a long time because alcohol is legal, it is everywhere, and it is easy to hide the signs and symptoms of alcohol abuse. However, once an individual allows their alcohol abuse disorder to interfere with their daily functioning, then oftentimes their disorder is quite noticeable. Especially if they show up to work hungover, skip out on family obligations, run into trouble with the law, begin to struggle financially, or become angry, violent, or disheveled. Alcohol abuse disorder can result in many serious medical conditions and alcohol withdrawal, itself, can be deadly if not treated in a medical setting. 

AKUA Mind and Body offers alcohol abuse treatment in Newport Beach for adult men and women who are struggling with an alcohol use disorder. The outpatient alcohol detox program in Newport Beach allows individuals to withdrawal from alcohol in a safe and comfortable setting. Medications are given to help ease the painful withdrawal effects and help curb future alcohol cravings. Once the client has successfully completed the withdrawal phase, they start entering psychotherapy which helps the individual uncover underlying triggers that initiated their alcohol addiction. The goal of psychotherapy is to teach the individuals healthy coping mechanisms they can use to help overcome future stressors, instead of using alcohol to cope.
