Addiction or substance use disorders are complex conditions that affect the way our mind functions and behaves. Different types of substances can do such things and one of them is alcohol. Alcohol is a legal substance that has been in use for thousands of years for recreational purposes. Although not particularly dangerous in small amounts, frequent consumption of large quantities of alcohol can be highly addictive and dangerous. When it reaches this point, people need to have quick access to treatment. This involves a series of combined treatment mechanisms offered by different institutions involving professionals and non-professionals for a significant amount of time and might continue for the rest of the patient’s life. Medicines can help the patients with detoxification, withdrawal symptoms, and reducing their relapse rates. Behavioral therapies are also included to incorporate healthier lifestyle choices, to help patients stay the course of treatment, and modify behaviors that are related to alcohol use. Other forms of treatment include communities like AA Oregon. These are social support groups that offer support and guidance to people who want to stop drinking. AA meetings in Monmouth are good places to find community support and sponsors that can help patients on their road to recovery.
