We live in a culture that embraces alcohol as a normal part of everyday life. We drink at parties; we drink during meals; we drink simply because it seems like a natural thing to do in so many circumstances. Unfortunately, some people begin drinking and soon discover they cannot stop. For them, alcohol addiction is just one bottle or glass away.
Private Rehab Helper knows all too well that alcohol addiction is more prevalent in the UK than we would like to admit. Though the number of adults seeking addiction treatment has declined slightly over the years, we know there are plenty of alcohol abusers who do not even know they are addicted. They need to know that the alcohol detox centre is the first stop in successfully breaking the addiction.
According to WebMD, a number of recent studies have looked at the effect of alcohol on the brain in order to determine what makes alcohol so addicting. What these studies have revealed is interesting. Researchers have discovered that alcohol consumption causes the brain to release what are known as endorphins. These endorphins are natural opioids that cause feelings of pleasure.
In addition, researchers discovered that heavy drinkers experience a significantly greater endorphin release than light drinkers. As a drinker increases his or her alcohol consumption, the release of the opioids increases as well. The data suggests a vicious cycle of more alcohol, more endorphins, and the resulting addiction.
Alcohol detox centres like the ones we work with exist for one reason: to interrupt the drinking cycle by completely separating the abuser from alcohol. When that cycle is interrupted, it forces withdrawal and an immediate stop to the release of those pleasurable endorphins. While detox may not be pretty, it is successful in the short term.
When the alcohol abuser has no underlying physical or emotional issues that contribute to his or her drinking, detox is often all that’s needed for long-term success. On the other hand, if there are underlying issues then they may need to be dealt with through rehab. Our alcohol detox centres can provide the proper evaluation and counselling necessary to make that determination.
