HOW WE HELP
Guiding You Through Your Road to Recovery by Treating the Mind, Body, Soul and Spirit.
When your loved one goes from drinking alcohol irregularly or in moderation to drinking it daily, they have become an alcoholic. This is more than just drinking a lot—it’s a disease that has taken control of your loved one’s life. You’ve likely noticed a change in their behavior, and that’s due to the alcohol. They need to seek out an alcohol rehab facility before this disease harms them, their loved ones, and others.
If you’re not sure what you can do to help, you’ve come to the right place. Good Landing is here to assist you and your loved one in overcoming alcohol addiction.
Alcohol addiction can be loosely defined as having no control over the use of alcohol. This may include drinking to excess daily, weekly, or even as little as once or twice a month. It can also include the lack of excessive drinking but the “need” to drink every day after work or with a meal. The key factor isn’t necessarily when someone is drinking or how much they’re drinking, but that they do not want to stop.
There are a number of factors that can be used to determine if a person is an alcoholic or not. These include the following:
Your loved one may not show all of these signs, but they can still be classified as an alcoholic if they demonstrate as few as two of them. The key point is over-use of alcohol and a lack of control over their drinking.
From the addict’s point of view, there’s nothing wrong with them. To them, they are simply enjoying a drink to unwind, relieve their stress, and have fun. Some may see drinking as a part of their social activities. Others may insist that they don’t have an alcohol problem because they drink at home away from others.
Addicts have many different excuses, but that’s all they are: excuses. Even when they come face to face with the consequences of their drinking, they find some reason to blame something else. Unfortunately, until they recognize that their drinking is the problem, they won’t be ready to attend alcohol rehab.
Good Landing is staffed by professionals who understand addiction and are ready to help those who are ready to help themselves. If your loved one has come to accept that they’re an alcoholic and that they need help, they’re ready for what Good Landing has to offer.
We treat alcohol addiction using many of the same tools we use to treat any type of addiction. Addicts work one-on-one with our experienced counselors to look at what has led them to abuse alcohol similar to the process in drug rehab. For most, drinking is a symptom of a deeper problem or condition. Some may drink as a way to escape. Others may drink to overcome their social anxiety. The alcohol itself isn’t the problem. It’s the reason why the addict is drinking that needs to be addressed for them to live a fully sober life.
Addicts will also work together in group therapy, discussing their concerns with each other and with their counselor. Building this type of support with other recovering addicts will help them transition into a program such as AA after they complete their time at Good Landing. These groups often form a lifelong support system.
Our partial hospitalization program gives addicts a chance to transform their life by attending programs at Good Landing during the week. They typically spend most of the day at Good Landing, but they sleep at home to keep their overall treatment costs down. This program is an intensive alcohol rehab recovery program, but it does rely on the addict. They must be ready to transform their lives by remaining sober at night and on the weekends.
Our outpatient rehab program is not as intensive, but it still makes use of therapy and life coaching. Our overall goal is to assist your loved one and your family adjust to sobriety. It is a hard path to walk for everyone involved. Trust must be rebuilt. Changes must be made. But by making the choice to enroll in our outpatient program, your loved one will show that they’re ready to make those changes.
One of the major barriers to treatment may alcoholics face is financial. This is especially true for those who have been abusing alcohol for quite some time. They have likely lost their job and may be thousands of dollars in debt. Some may have lost their vehicle or home due to missed payments. They may have very little savings and no income.
To help eliminate this barrier, Good Landing accepts almost all insurance. Most major carriers do cover addiction recovery programs. We accept United Healthcare, Anthem, Aetna, Cigna, and many more. If you’re uncertain if your loved one is covered, contact their insurance company. We can also help you sort out insurance coverage.
Helping a loved one deal with alcohol addiction is not easy. There’s likely a good amount of resentment built up due to how the addict has acted. Moving past that resentment is vital if you want to help your loved one regain their life.
Here at Good Landing, we understand how destructive alcoholism can be. We hope you will speak to your loved one and encourage them to get the help they need. Contact us today to learn more about what we offer and how we can help you and your loved one.
