Signs and Symptoms of Alcohol Addiction

Recognizing the signs of alcohol addiction is the first step towards recovery. Common symptoms include increased tolerance to alcohol, withdrawal symptoms when not drinking, loss of control over alcohol intake, continued use despite negative consequences, and neglect of responsibilities.

Below is a list of symptoms of alcohol dependence according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5):

  1. The individual often drinks more alcohol or drinks over a longer period than they intended.

  2. The person has a persistent desire or has made unsuccessful attempts to cut down or control their alcohol use.

  3. A great deal of time is spent in activities necessary to obtain alcohol, use alcohol, or recover from its effects.

  4. The individual experiences cravings, or a strong desire or urge to use alcohol.

  5. Recurrent alcohol use results in a failure to fulfill major role obligations at work, school, or home.

  6. Continued alcohol use occurs despite having persistent or recurrent social or interpersonal problems caused or exacerbated by the effects of alcohol.

  7. Important social, occupational, or recreational activities are given up or reduced because of alcohol use.

  8. Recurrent alcohol use in situations in which it is physically hazardous.

  9. Alcohol use continues despite knowledge of having a persistent or recurrent physical or psychological problem that is likely to have been caused or exacerbated by alcohol.

  10. Tolerance, as defined by either a need for markedly increased amounts of alcohol to achieve intoxication or desired effect, or a markedly diminished effect with continued use of the same amount of alcohol.

  11. Withdrawal, as manifested by either the characteristic withdrawal syndrome for alcohol or alcohol (or a closely related substance, such as a benzodiazepine) is taken to relieve or avoid withdrawal symptoms.

How Do I Know I Need Alcohol Rehab?

If alcohol is negatively impacting your health, relationships, or responsibilities, it might be time to consider rehab. Other indicators include inability to stop drinking despite a desire to do so, experiencing withdrawal symptoms, and using alcohol to cope with stress or emotions.

When deciding whether or not you need alcohol rehab, consider asking yourself the following questions:

Our Los Angeles Rehab Programs

At Iris Healing Retreat, we offer a range of programs tailored to meet the needs of our clients at every stage of recovery. We recognize that each individual’s path to sobriety is personal and can vary significantly in complexity and duration. To address these varied needs, we provide a comprehensive spectrum of programs that cater to every stage of recovery, from the initial decision to seek help all the way to long-term aftercare and relapse prevention. 

Whether you require the intense support of a residential program or the flexible scheduling of outpatient care, our expert team is here to guide you with evidence-based treatments and holistic therapies. By creating a nurturing environment that supports healing and personal growth, we help our clients not only reclaim their lives from addiction but also build a foundation for a sustainable, alcohol-free future.

Our Alcohol Detox program provides a safe, medically supervised environment where clients can detoxify their bodies. This crucial first step helps manage withdrawal symptoms and prepare for ongoing treatment. Learn more about our alcohol detox program.

In our Residential program, clients live on-site at our facility in Los Angeles, receiving 24-hour support and intensive therapy. This immersive environment is ideal for those needing a structured setting to focus on recovery.

The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) offers a high level of care while allowing clients to engage in recovery activities during the day and return home in the evenings, suitable for those with stable living situations.

Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) provides flexibility for clients to continue their professional and personal responsibilities while participating in scheduled treatment sessions several times a week.

Outpatient Rehab is designed for those transitioning from more intensive programs or those with less severe addiction, focusing on continuing therapy and support while reintegrating into everyday life.

Our Los Angeles Alcohol Rehab Therapies

At Iris Healing Retreat, we incorporate a variety of evidence-based therapies to cater to the diverse needs of our clients.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive therapy that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain, particularly areas affected by depression and substance abuse disorders. TMS is particularly beneficial for clients who do not respond well to traditional medications or those looking for alternative treatments. This therapy can help reduce cravings and improve mood, aiding significantly in the recovery process.

Neurofeedback involves training the brain to function more efficiently by rewarding it for producing certain brainwave patterns. This technique is highly effective in improving emotional and neurological conditions that accompany alcohol dependence, such as anxiety and depression. By learning to control their own brain functions, clients can achieve greater emotional stability and reduce the likelihood of relapse.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a widely used therapeutic approach that helps individuals identify and challenge negative thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to their addiction. CBT equips clients with practical skills to manage triggers and cravings, and to replace unhealthy habits with healthier coping mechanisms. This therapy is essential for developing the mental resilience needed for long-term sobriety.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is an effective form of therapy that combines cognitive-behavioral techniques with mindfulness practices. DBT is particularly effective for individuals who experience intense emotions and struggle with relationships. It teaches skills in four key areas: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness, all crucial for recovering from alcohol addiction.

Brainspotting is a powerful, focused therapy designed to help individuals process and overcome trauma that may be locked in the body. This method uses spots in the client’s visual field to access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain. Brainspotting can be particularly transformative for those whose substance abuse is linked to emotional and psychological trauma, offering a path to healing by directly addressing the root causes of their addiction.

Family Therapy is integral to the holistic recovery process, as addiction often affects not just the individual but their entire family system. This therapy involves family members in the recovery process, helping to heal relationships and improve communication. By addressing the family dynamics and patterns that may contribute to addiction, family therapy supports a supportive home environment conducive to recovery.

Relapse Prevention

Relapse Prevention training is a critical component of our treatment programs, designed to help clients identify and manage triggers that could lead to a relapse. This therapy involves developing personalized strategies for dealing with stress, recognizing early warning signs of relapse, and strengthening coping strategies. Our goal is to empower our clients with the tools they need to maintain their sobriety and thrive in their new alcohol-free life.
