Admitting to yourself that you have an alcohol abuse problem can be hard, but when you’re dependent on drinking and it becomes a source of personal and professional trouble in your life, it’s time to reach out for help.
For too long have people viewed needing help for addiction as shameful or weak. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Reaching out for support when you’re struggling is a sign of integrity and strength. However, one of the challenges you might face when you’re ready to seek help is where you should look for it.
Our team at Tulip Hill Recovery is here to walk with you through your journey to overcome addiction and find freedom in your life. If you’re ready to find treatment, here are some ways to get started.
Talk to your doctor
Quitting alcohol on your own is rarely an option. Alcohol abuse leads to alcohol use disorder, which causes a physical dependence on drinking. Trying to quit on your own would be like trying to wish away a serious illness. Instead, you may need to trust professionals who can help you find treatment from alcohol both physically and mentally.
If you have a primary physician, you may want to talk to them about your alcohol use and how it’s affecting you. Your doctor can look for signs of alcohol use disorder and put you on the course for treatment.
Visit a recovery center for treatment
While visiting a doctor is a great way to start seeking help, you can skip them entirely and visit a professional recovery center like Tulip Hill Recovery. At Tulip Hill, we have several licensed clinicians on staff who can diagnose your addiction and identify any co-occurring mental health disorders that fuel your alcohol abuse.
At a recovery center like ours, you can begin treatment right away if you are a good fit for our program. Treatment looks different for everyone depending on their needs, but the typical model most clients follow is 30 days of partial hospitalization (PHP) recovery and 60 days of intensive outpatient recovery (IOP) if needed.
Afterward, we help you continue your recovery journey by getting you in touch with our alumni program, which includes others who have received treatment at Tulip Hill who can help you reintegrate back into the real world. You don’t have to battle the temptations of life alone.
This comprehensive approach to treating addiction and mental health while following through after your initial treatment helps our clients find freedom from addiction and a brighter future full of possibilities.
