Counseling for Alcoholism – Therapists and Counselors in Peachtree City

It is not always the case that an alcohol addict is easy to identify. Alcohol addicts are a diverse group of people and experts suggest that 20% of addicts are ‘high functioning’ – meaning that their lives are otherwise indistinguishable from the average person. Whilst the high functioning addict may not be as obvious in his or her addiction, the root problem is always the same – a physical dependency on alcohol and a mental compulsion to regularly drink in excess. Some of the common signs of an addiction include:

  • Consuming alcohol to feel relaxed, confident and normal.
  • Continued consumption, even when one’s health deteriorates.
  • Withdrawal symptoms when consumption stops.
  • Requiring an increasing amount for the same effect.

The Consequences Of Alcohol Addiction.

Abusing alcohol has serious health consequences. People associate alcohol addiction with liver problems such as cirrhosis, but they might not be aware of the other dangerous health conditions it can cause – the rates of cardiovascular disease, cancer and dementia increase dramatically among addicts. Even the act of quitting alcohol itself can have major side effects – alcohol withdrawal syndrome is a serious condition and can lead to a life threatening hospitalization.

Abstinence Is The Key.

Abstinence is the final goal for any alcohol addiction treatment program. The road towards this end goal can vary in the details, but there are common themes between the different approaches. It always begins with the addict accepting that he or she has a problem, only then can the treatment begin. Following acceptance is a process of detoxification, rehabilitation and finally achieving and maintaining abstinence.

The rehabilitation process often takes the form of a counseling service which continues even after abstinence has been achieved. Here at Thriveworks Peachtree City Counseling we offer a holistic counseling process tailored to the individual client. Give us a call now and we will help guide you through the process of recovery.

A game changer for me!!

Without going on an on, but I may - - I feel that Stacey Franklin, my counselor, is literally the best kept se...Read more

cret (that I will not keep a secret) if you haven't met her - and if you have not been to Thriveworks yet, than that is the second best kept secret. Thriveworks is the most incredible counseling place that I have ever been to - when you walk in - it offers such a tranquil and serene atmosphere, where every counselor greets you with a very welcoming spirit. I have been to multiple counselors throughout my life, in multiple states, and it is without hesitation that this environment is incredible. When you call to schedule an appointment to meet with a counselor, they work really hard to try and match you with a counselor that best fits the struggles that you are going through - but at any point during your counseling sessions, if you feel that the match may not be perfect - they want you to be honest so that they can try and fix it, or match you with someone that may be a better fit for you within the practice or refer you to someone they know outside of the practice. That is what an amazing practice and counselor should do! Stacey is by far the BEST counselor I have every worked with. She is genuine, honest, skilled, raw, empathetic, compassionate, pneumatic, accepting, flexible, communicable, my safe place, and so VERY kind. Her aura is something I have never seen before and although I am on a life journey of discovery and acceptance, I am so thankful for her to be on this journey with me because I do not know what I would have done with out her. If you are reading this review and are wondering if this is the place for you - I challenge you to give it a shot - it was a life changer for me.
