What we do

Alchohol addiction, detox & recovery

Alcohol addiction is the dependence on alcohol for everyday survival and to simply function in the world. Alcohol does not discriminate by age, race or gender and is a cunning and powerful disease to navigate. Many alcoholics find themselves at a crossroad of being unable to ‘put down the drink’ and change their direction in life, even though they so desperately want to.

Alcohol addiction can look different for everyone, with some alcoholics drinking daily to the point of inebriation, while others engage in irregular binging episodes. Deep-seated feelings of shame, isolation and loneliness are painful for the alcoholic themself. However, the addiction also causes a damaging ripple effect for those closest to them.

How do I know I’m an alcoholic?

  • You can’t have ‘just one drink’.
  • You are unable to limit the amount of alcohol you consume or drink more than the recommended limit, often drinking to obliteration or to black out.
  • Your drinking puts you or others in unsafe or dangerous situations, causing you to take risks you otherwise wouldn’t, ie. driving over the legal limit
  • You isolate and drink alone, or hide your drinking from others
  • Your thoughts are preoccupied with obtaining and drinking alcohol
  • You crave alcohol or suffer with physical withdrawals, such as headaches or tremors

In many cases, frequent alcohol use can lead to strong withdrawal symptoms for people who suddenly decide to stop drinking. A common symptom of alcohol withdrawal is the Delirium Tremens, also known as the DTs. Effects of DTs may include tremors, shivering, seizures, anxiety and disorientation.

These powerful physical symptoms can make detoxing from alcohol on your own frightening and, sometimes, even dangerous.
