Alcoholism Treatment

Alcoholism Treatment at Banyan Heartland

Alcohol use disorder is a pervasive problem nationwide. It includes binge drinking, alcohol abuse, and alcoholism. When you look at the numbers on binge drinking alone, there are 17 billion binge drinks consumed in the nation each year.1 Alcoholism statistics are also sobering, with a reported 15.1 million American adults struggling with alcohol use disorder.2 Alcoholism is also a problem that won’t go away on its own and tends to get worse if left untreated. If you or a loved one has a drinking problem, our professional alcoholism treatment in Illinois is crucial for getting and staying sober.

When to Get Alcohol Addiction Treatment

While many people believe that a person needs to hit “rock bottom” before they get alcohol abuse treatment, this is simply not the case. Some people will visibly hit rock bottom with their drinking habits, but others like high-functioning alcoholics who appear to lead mostly normal lives may never seem to reach this imaginary point. Drinking affects people in various ways; just because you haven’t hit rock bottom doesn’t mean you don’t need help. Even with high functioning alcoholics, drinking can lead to relationship problems, health issues, poor mental health, financial struggles, and even run-ins with the law. No matter where you or a loved one falls on this scale, do not wait to get help with our alcohol addiction treatment at our Gilman rehab.

What Does Alcohol Abuse Treatment Look Like?

At Banyan Heartland, we offer effective treatment for alcoholism for people looking to achieve long-term sobriety. Our facility is located in tranquil Gilman, Illinois, a short distance from Chicago, Naperville, and Bloomington. Patients can benefit from our facility’s relaxing setting and use this time to focus on their sobriety journey.

The first step for most of our patients is a medical detox from alcohol that is supervised by our medical staff, trained to handle withdrawal symptoms, and make the detox as comfortable as possible. This process focuses on eliminating the body’s dependence on alcohol and removing the harmful toxins from the body’s system.

At our alcohol rehab in Gilman, we believe in helping patients heal physically, emotionally, and even spiritually from the scars that their drinking has left behind. Once detox is complete, our patients will transition into our residential addiction treatment or another treatment program to begin to focus on the secondary issues associated with alcoholism and the problems that can lead to a relapse. This treatment includes personalized therapies for addiction treatment and ancillary programs designed to promote long-term sobriety and comprehensive healing. With time, patients will not only develop a better understanding of their drinking problem but also gain better control over their lives because of it. Before they leave, patients will also focus on relapse prevention so that they can solidify their sobriety and confidently reenter the real world after programming is complete. Patients in our program will enjoy structured schedules of treatment, relaxation, and self-work. They will also be part of a community of like-minded individuals who support one another in recovery.

Alcoholism is a challenging addiction to overcome, but sobriety is possible. With the right alcoholism treatment, men and women of all ages and backgrounds can overcome their alcohol use disorder. At Banyan Heartland, we are here to support you or your loved one on the journey of recovery. Contact us today to get help for yourself or help for a loved one.
