Many people think that alcohol will make you the life of the party, but the truth is that alcohol is, literally, a depressant. In the United States alone, approximately 17 million people suffer from alcohol abuse or dependence. Each year, approximately 88,000 people die from alcohol-related complications. Deaths from alcohol are the third leading cause of preventable deaths in the U.S. Alcohol use disorder has many short-term and long-term health consequences, including liver disease, anemia, cardiovascular disease, seizures, nerve damage, gout, high blood pressure, depression, and pancreatitis. Alcohol withdrawal can be dangerous-even deadly-if not done properly, and for those looking to quit their dependence and addiction to alcohol, doing so under a medically-managed detox and residential treatment program is the best course of action for better long-term success. At Haven House, you will have your own primary therapist, as well as sessions with a psychiatrist, and group sessions with our clinical team. They all work together to formulate the best treatment plan for your specific needs and will address underlying mental health concerns that play a role in abusing alcohol.
