Columbia is a home rule-class city in Kentucky. The city which is located just above Russell Creek in Adair County, has set up Alcoholics Anonymous meeting locations to provide help to its residents who are having difficulties dealing with alcohol addiction. These residents are just a small fraction of the many millions of people in America and around the world who are struggling with alcohol addiction. Thankfully, there are several treatment methods that are used to treat the disease. Treatment for alcohol addiction may occur in stages and range from detoxification to rid the body of alcohol; rehabilitation to learn coping skills and habits; professional counseling; medications such as Naltrexone (ReVia), Acamprosate, or Disulfiram (Antabuse) to help control addiction, and support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). What makes AA standout compared to the other treatment options for alcohol addiction is its concept of addressing the root causes of an individual’s alcohol dependence. Addressing emotional or psychological problems that may cause people to drink is a major step towards reversing alcohol addiction. AA meetings are one-hour long “therapy sessions” that teach its participants to practice abstinence through the famous ‘Twelve Steps’ method. Residents of Columbia with an alcohol dependency can uncover the root cause of their dependency by attending AA meetings in Columbia.
