With the Baby Boomer generation aging, more alcohol rehab programs across the country are finding their services in demand from this demographic. It may be hard to imagine for some, but seniors are struggling with alcohol addiction and account for almost 60 percent of the people seeking treatment each year.
?
According to a recent article published by the Associated Press, the number of admissions to alcohol detox and alcohol rehab programs has doubled between the years of 1992 and 2008. Experts expect this rising trend to continue as the Baby Boomer generation grows older. This presents some unique challenges for alcohol rehab programs. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration estimates that one of every eight older adults in the United States sought help for drug and alcohol addiction in 2008.
?
One center in New York City is offering substance abuse treatment programs designed specifically for seniors.  “There is a level of societal denial around the issue. No one wants to look at their grandparent, no one wants to think about their grandparent or their elderly parent, and see that person as an addict,” said Peter Provet, President and CEO of Odyssey House.
?
Many of these seniors have struggled for years with alcohol abuse, and reach a point in their lives where they recognize they need to get help for their disease. The next logical step would be to find a quality alcohol detox and alcohol rehab program. It is important to select an alcohol rehab program with an experienced medical staff, because it is common for seniors to have multiple medical problems like high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes. All of these are chronic medical conditions that require daily medications and monitoring, and an alcohol rehab and alcohol detox program needs to provide that round-the-clock attention.
?
It is possible for seniors to regain their health and start the recovery from alcohol addiction. The social stigma of the disease should not prevent anyone, regardless of their chronological age, from seeking quality treatment at an alcohol rehab.

Are you looking for a good Alcohol Detox program for yourself? If you are, congratulations! You have just successfully made that difficult first step towards overcoming alcohol dependence. If you are looking for an Alcohol Detox program for a loved one, arm yourself. You need to be in it for the long haul because you might be that person’s only hope to getting better. The resolve to overcome addiction is the first, most important step to fighting addiction. Of course, the other half of the battle lies on your choice of rehab facility. Below are guides to help you find the right one.

 

Understanding Alcohol Detox

 

Before we begin, you need to understand that Alcohol Detox is a vital part of rehabilitation, but it is only one part of it. If you come across an alcoholism rehab program which stops at Alcohol Detox, let it go. Detoxification needs to be followed by counseling treatments for it to work. On the other hand, if the program completely forgoes Alcohol Detox, do not trust it, either. Detoxification is necessary in any addiction rehab attempt because alcohol affects the addicted individual’s brain, and detox treats this problem.

 

Addiction to any substance, including alcohol, is both a physical and a psychological condition and unless both aspects of it are treated, relapses or total rehabilitation failure is bound to happen. If you want to completely and successfully overcome your addiction, you need to look for a good Alcohol Detox program which comes with counseling programs which are just as impressive.

 

Customized program

 

As much as possible, you should always consider only luxury facilities for your Alcohol Detox and rehabilitation programs. None-private facilities treat so many patients all at once that they are hardly able to focus on each individual case of addiction. That in itself is already a risky thing. They all tend to dish out canned rehabilitation treatments which make for painful and unpleasant Alcohol Detox as well as ineffective counseling and recreational programs. You are least likely to recover completely from alcoholism when you sign up with these public facilities.

 

On the other hand, when you choose a good luxury Alcohol Detox facility, you are given personal medical attention. You can enjoy having your own rehabilitation coach as well as have programs that are streamlined to fit your unique needs. Without a doubt, medical care that’s this thorough will make complete recovery from alcoholism very possible for you. Also, the Alcohol Detox treatments in these facilities will be more gentle and gradual. Because you are being diagnosed closely by your doctor, and you are being given customized detoxification programs, you are bound to suffer from lesser withdrawal symptoms, if you experience them at all.

 

Do not stop at Alcohol Detox

As we’ve mentioned earlier, it is not enough for a rehab facility to stop at Alcohol Detox treatments. Neither is rehabilitation complete without outpatient support, either. An excellent inpatient program can prepare recovering addicts to face the real world again once they return to their old environments, but they also need support while they are here.

 

Choose Alcohol Detox facilities which offer impressive outpatient support as well. They are the ones which closely involve their clients’ families in the rehab progress. Most of them also make sure that outpatients get counseling support through regular peer sessions with other recovering addicts like themselves. Somehow, this helps to ease the fight.
