Alcohol detox is only the first step towards recovery from alcoholism. In an alcohol detox program, all that has been accomplished is the elimination of alcohol from the body, the management of alcohol withdrawal symptoms and the development of a foundation for your future recovery. The real work must follow and comes in resolving the core issues surrounding why you continue to drink, despite all of the negative consequences. Research shows, that people who only attend alcohol detox, instead of also following through with an alcohol rehab program, will most likely end up in relapse.

While you are at the alcohol treatment center, you will learn:
Alcohol abuse treatment differs from alcoholism treatment in that detox is not necessary because a person suffering from alcohol abuse lacks the physical addiction and intense cravings that one suffering from alcoholism would experience.
The first step in alcohol abuse treatment is abstinence. If you have a problem with controlling the amount of alcohol you consume, just stay away from it altogether to eliminate the risk of binge drinking. You must train yourself to live without alcohol. To do this you should avoid people and places that make drinking the norm, such as bars and parties where alcohol will be consumed. Enlist the help and support of your family and friends, and try to establish a new hobby to replace drinking alcohol. Do something that makes you feel good about yourself and about what you're doing, such as volunteer work or a new exercise regiment.
