Alcoholism Rehab in Orange County
Alcoholism is distinguished by one’s dependency on alcohol to get through the day. This is also seen in a high tolerance to alcohol, and that they need more and more to feel any sort of effect. Alcoholism is a true change and shift in the normal day to day life of the affected- alcohol becomes their one true need and they cannot function without it. Alcoholism is debilitating and can be life-threatening, which is why treatment and rehab from this addiction is imperative to living a full life.

Medical Effects of Long-Term Alcoholism
The main long-term effect of alcoholism is cirrhosis of the liver, which could require a liver transplant. It’s essentially the death of the liver due to all the toxins ingested with the alcohol. Another effect is pancreatitis, which is a very dangerous inflammation of the pancreas, which can cause a whole host of other side effects. One of the largest effects is tolerance- which is when you need more and more alcohol to get the same feeling, and the more alcohol you ingest, the higher risk you are to have the other, dangerous medical effects.
Withdrawal Symptoms from Alcoholism
Initial withdrawal from drugs or alcohol can be physically distressing, painful, and even dangerous. Without appropriate care, you can experience increased blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, severe muscle cramping, and even seizures. Alcohol poses one of the most dangerous forms of withdrawal. An abrupt cessation of alcohol (going “cold turkey”) will result in withdrawal symptoms within hours and the time necessary for complete alcohol detox can range from 3 to 14 days.
