Aurora Alcohol and Drug Rehab Is the Best Choice for Lasting Recovery
It is estimated that between 12 and 14 million adults in the U.S. suffer from alcohol abuse or are chronic alcoholics. Nearly 100,000 Americans die each year as a result of alcohol abuse and alcohol is a factor in more than half of the country's homicides, suicides, and traffic accidents. Alcohol abuse also plays a role in many social and domestic problems, from job absenteeism and crimes against property to spousal and child abuse.
Alcohol abuse differs from alcoholism in that it does not include an extremely intense craving for alcohol, loss of control over drinking, or physical dependence. Alcohol abuse is defined as a pattern of drinking that results in one or more of the following situations within a 12-month period:
- Failure to fulfill major work, school, or home responsibilities;
- Drinking alcohol in situations that are physically dangerous, such as while driving a car or operating machinery;
- Having recurring alcohol-related legal problems, such as being arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or for physically hurting someone while drunk; and
- Continued drinking despite having ongoing relationship problems that are caused or worsened by the drinking.
The Definition of Alcoholism
Alcoholism is a disease in which the afflicted individual compulsively drinks alcohol. This intense craving results in the inability to manage control over the urge to drink. The more the individual uses alcohol, the stronger the body's physical dependence on it will become. The ensuing tolerance causes the need to drink greater amounts in order to achieve the same effects.
Alcoholism is recognized by the American Medical Association as a disease. In cases of alcoholism, the person will crave the substance in the same manner as someone starving from food or water. Individuals will typically continue their consumption regardless of the damage it is causing to their health, their relationships or their finances, as the compulsion is uncontrollable.
Why Work with Aurora Alcohol Rehab?
Aurora alcohol rehab recognizes that there are many reasons why people become addicted to alcohol. For this reason, the center offers a wide range of treatment options to enable a person to not only overcome addiction problems but also learn how to deal with issues that lead to alcohol addiction in the first place.
Aurora alcohol detox is the first step in addiction treatment. Detoxification eliminates toxins from the body so that your past alcohol consumption does not negatively affect your future health. After detoxification, you can avail yourself of one and one counseling, group counseling and other helpful treatment options.

- - Determining the underlying reason why you feel compelled to drink

- - Learning how to manage and eliminate stress without turning to addictive substances
- - Drawing up a plan to prevent relapses
