While many people like to enjoy the occasional drink at dinner or a few beers while watching the game, alcohol is a big problem for some people. Over 14 million adults in the United States struggle with an alcohol use disorder.1 Whether you are one of them or know someone who is, there is hope.
Why Alcohol Abuse Help Is Important
Alcoholism is a disease that comes in many shapes and forms. Some alcoholics can be easily picked out because they have noticeably let themselves go. Others may teeter on the fence between heavy drinking and alcoholism. Because many people drink socially or go on the occasional drinking binge, it may be hard to recognize the signs of a functioning alcoholic in someone you love. The problem is that alcoholism is nearly impossible to stop on your own.
If left untreated, alcohol abuse can be a wide-reaching problem that can ruin a person’s career, relationships, reputation, health, future, and life as a whole. Do not wait until your drinking or the drinking of a loved one leads to legal problems like a DWI or getting fired from a job to seek out alcohol abuse treatment.
Our Palm Beach Alcohol Treatment Program
Whether you’ve hit rock bottom or your loved one’s drinking has just started to become a problem, we want to help. At Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches, also known as the Center for Alcohol & Drug Studies, our alcohol addiction treatment is designed to help people achieve long-term sobriety.
Treatment will begin with an alcohol detox to rid the patient’s body of all of the harmful chemicals from their heavy drinking. This is an important first step that should be done under the supervision of trained medical staff in case of severe withdrawal symptoms. At BHOPB, we offer detox on-site with around-the-clock support.
Patients who partake in any of our programs will also participate in alcohol addiction therapy programs. These include individual counseling sessions as well as group therapy with peers in similar situations. We also offer a wide range of holistic addiction treatment programs including yoga, expressive art programs, mindfulness, EMDR, and more. Together these programs help alcoholics stop their dependency on alcohol and reflect on why they drink or how their problems began.

Because we are a dual diagnosis treatment center, our staff is trained to handle both of these issues. Instead of focusing solely on your drinking, patients will be able to work on their mental health issues as well. Through therapies and unique programming, patients gain a better understanding of the connection between their two problems and how to progress forward.
