Many people are unaware of the depth and duration of the effects that substance abuse can wield on one’s health, loved ones, employment and standing with the law. Once the addiction begins to take hold, a person will be unable to function without the substance. Everyday actions such as driving to work and socializing among friends can become impossible.
Attempting to battle addiction solo is an extremely difficult task. Seeking professional treatment at Sovereign Health of California can help to identify and treat the addiction. We do more than help our patients through relapse – we provide valuable knowledge and life skills to help them stay sober for years to come.
Addiction can involve a variety of substances, symptoms and causes. Each substance varies in how it affects the brain, alters behavior and controls lives.
Symptoms of Alcohol Addiction
People with alcohol addiction don’t just enjoy alcohol – they need it to survive. Many – but not all – alcoholics experience a physical dependence on alcohol. This makes it difficult for them to stop drinking without developing dangerous withdrawal symptoms such as delirium, seizures and even coma.
All alcoholics misuse alcohol regardless of the ill effects it has on their body, relationships and career.
