Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Center


The industry for drug and alcohol rehabilitation has come a long way since the days when most people considered alcoholics possessed by the devil. Although some of the lingering stigma of those times carries into today—particularly in the pernicious application of the disease label. Psychologists have come to far more enlightened conclusions about the nature of addiction and what drives people to sue.

First things first. Addiction is not something visited upon our brains from somewhere else; it is the result of very fundamental beliefs, traumas and other emotional attachments we have made throughout life. Physical dependency is hardly related at all, as evidenced by the great many addicts who switch substances throughout their lives.

Steps for Rehabilitation from Alcohol and Drugs

If you are physically dependent on drugs or alcohol, it is dangerous to stop drinking instantly. The brain is depressed by alcohol and removing alcohol instantly causes the brain to race. The symptoms are sweating, heart pounding or palpitations, tremors or shakes, rapid and extreme mood swings, and in certain cases fits. These withdrawal symptoms can be fatal. Start keeping a diary of your alcohol consumption. Record the number of glasses. Stick to the same size glass each day. Try to keep to the same type of drink but if you have to mix drinks, record the number of glasses of wine, spirits or beer.

  1. Walk 15 to 20 minutes per day ideally after your evening meal, initially at a steady pace building up over 3-4 days to a brisk pace.
  2. Drink plenty of tap water and drink at least a pint of water after your evening walk to help flush your system out.
  3. Avoid WHITE FLOUR and SUGAR.
  4. Eat at least one slice with a meal three times a day.
  5. Learn to eat between 7 - 9 a.m., 12 - 2 p.m., and 6 - 8 p.m. This regime will reduce your craving for alcohol and make you feel better and helps you to control your weight.
