Island Assessment and Counseling offers alcohol rehab for the residents of Seattle, Bellevue, Issaquah and the surrounding areas of Washington State.
What is Alcoholism?
Alcoholism is not necessarily tied to how much a person consumes, but rather how the consumption of alcohol affects one’s life, health, and well-being. When alcohol use becomes a barrier to living a productive life or starts to destroy important relationships, it is time to seek help for alcoholism with our alcohol rehab program.
Why Seek Treatment for Alcoholism?
Like any disease, when alcoholism is not properly treated, your condition may destroy your life and relationships. You may believe that you have your alcohol use under control, but looking at your family, work and health allows you to see its negative effects. Using alcohol does not indicate that you are a bad person, only that you have learned to use alcohol as a coping mechanism and may not even know what exactly you are trying to cope with when you drink. For this reason, you should seek the support of a professional counselor and other medical professionals to deal with your issues. You can work with them to recognize the signs of alcoholism as well as the underlying conditions that cause you to depend on alcohol.
What is Alcohol Abuse?
Is alcohol causing problems at home, work or with your important relationships? Do you have arguments at home because of your alcohol use or the effects of alcohol consumption? Are you unable to manage your responsibilities at work effectively because of your alcohol use? Do you have legal problems related to alcohol use? If any of these scenarios reflect your life, you are living with alcohol abuse. This simply means that you depend upon alcohol in order to function each day, either physically or emotionally. Alcohol abuse also appears in the form of binge drinking or consuming large quantities on the weekend, sometimes to the point where you black out or do not remember what happened within the last few hours.
