When an individual has a substance use disorder, it is hard to keep a handle on your day-to-day responsibilities and not to get stressed or agitated when craving the substance. When affected with Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD), treatment needs to be highly considered to help take better control of your health and better manage your life. A treatment is considered effective when it includes resolving all underlying problems including their alcohol use. Since alcohol interferes with the normal physiology of our brain, medical treatment might be necessary to effectively detoxify patients and manage symptoms that arise from not using alcohol. Other types of treatment might include behavioral therapies and counseling provided by trained professionals. Another informal source of support is communities like AA Oregon that are formed and maintained by people who have been affected by AUD. It is an international fellowship of all ages with different social, cultural, and economic backgrounds. The AA program that is defined by the 12 steps and traditions found in their guiding literature is meant to help members find fulfillment in their lives without the need for alcohol. This program is implemented at events like AA meetings in Merlin and is a place where members can interact with each other and find support.
