Alcoholism is a chronic, debilitating disease that destroys lives and affects entire families. Fortunately, it can be treated. The best alcohol rehab programs provide a comprehensive continuum of care that includes everything from alcohol detox to support groups.

Types of alcoholism treatment:

Alcohol Detox

Generally, rehab begins with alcohol detox and medical management of alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Since withdrawal symptoms can be particularly severe, medical supervision is strongly recommended for safe alcohol detox.

Behavioral therapy

Once the patient has gone through alcohol detox, they often begin some form of behavioral therapy, which addresses underlying causes of alcoholism and teaches coping strategies to prevent relapse.


Behavioral treatment works well in conjunction with medication, which is commonly used in alcohol rehab reduce cravings and preventing relapse.

Family Counseling

Family counseling involves the family in the recovery process so that familial dysfunction contributing to addiction can be identified and resolved. Family counseling also helps break the cycle of addiction by educating parents, spouses, children and siblings before they, too, fall victim to alcoholism.

Support Groups

In addition to alcohol detox and rehab, support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous play a big role in recovery. These groups often give alcoholics a feeling of acceptance as well as opportunities to share experiences, find encouragement and help others recover from alcoholism.

Start recovery for life.

The first steps toward recovering from an alcoholism are recognizing the problem and seeking professional help from people who care. Please explore Caron’s alcohol rehab programs and contact us for more information today.
