Struggling with Alcohol Addiction? Get Help Now

For many people, alcohol addiction results in a trip to the hospital. About 40% of emergency room patients have an alcohol use disorder, experts say.[1] You can stop this cycle of drinking too much, getting injured, getting care, and drinking again. Enroll in comprehensive care at Boca Recovery Center and make meaningful changes that stick. 

Treating Alcohol Addiction at Boca Recovery Center 

Research suggests people need an average of two to five attempts at treatment to successfully overcome a drug or alcohol problem.[2] Whether this is your first attempt to stop drinking or your fiftieth, it could be your last. 

At Boca Recovery Center, we use proven, evidence-based interventions for alcohol addiction treatment. Your program might include some or all of the following elements:

Medical Detox 

Medical detox at Boca Recovery Center could save your life. Some people who quit alcohol abruptly develop a life-threatening condition called delirium tremens. Of them, about 15% die.[1] Medical detox involves using medications to keep you safe. 

When you enroll in medical detox, your team will assess your health and determine the right medication approach. Often, benzodiazepines are used as they work to calm excited brain cells and prevent serious problems like seizures. 

During detox, your doctors will provide the medications you need at a dose that’s right for you. Those medications are slowly tapered, allowing you to get sober safely and gradually. 

Medication-Assisted Treatment 

At Boca Recovery Center, we only use therapies that have been proven effective. For people with alcohol addiction, that means medication-assisted treatment. 

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved four medications for alcohol addiction: acamprosate, disulfiram, naltrexone, and topiramate.[3] Each one works differently, and it’s hard to choose the right one as a healthcare consumer. Your team at Boca Recovery Center. 

We’ll learn more about your symptoms, your cravings, and your prior attempts to quit drinking. With that information, we can determine what medication seems right for you and what dose might work well. 

Comprehensive Inpatient Rehab Treatment 

An inpatient rehab treatment for alcohol use disorder involves moving into Boca Recovery Center for 30 to 90 days. You’ll work on your addiction full-time while you’re surrounded by talented treatment teams. 

An inpatient program allows you to dig deep into the causes of your drinking. Sometimes, you find things you never expected and aren’t ready to handle. For example, experts say people with alcohol use disorders have a higher risk of mental health issues like anxiety and depression.[4] Uncovering this issue in inpatient care can mean getting the targeted help you need to quit drinking for good. 

Therapy Options 

Therapy plays an important role in recovery from alcohol use disorder. However, some people respond to one type of therapy, and others prefer another solution. At Boca Recovery Center, our staff is trained in many types of therapy, so we have plenty of treatment choices. 

Some common therapies we use at Boca Recovery Center include the following:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): You work with a therapist to understand the connection between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to avoid relapse and learn coping skills.
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT): This type of CBT involves talk therapy and an education aspect to improve emotional regulation, distress tolerance, mindfulness, and interpersonal effectiveness.
  • Motivational enhancement therapy: This type of therapy focuses on resolving your ambivalence about entering treatment and stopping substance abuse.
  • Contingency management: You receive tangible rewards like vouchers or cash for abstinent behaviors, such as drug-free urine tests.
  • Group therapy: Facilitated by a mental health professional, you meet with other patients to discuss issues related to alcohol addiction, challenges, and successes. You may practice sober social skills, drug refusal strategies, and role-play.
  • Family therapy: Facilitated by a mental health professional, you and at least one family member meet to heal the damage caused by alcohol abuse, improve family bonds, and learn conflict resolution and communication skills.
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR): A therapist works with you to reduce the distress related to traumatic memories, using focused eye movements.
  • Holistic and complementary therapies: Combined with evidence-based therapies, holistic therapies like creative arts therapy and yoga may help treat various aspects of addiction.
