Alcohol is one of the most toxic substances and one of the most commonly abused substances in our society today. Sadly, because alcohol is legal, it is often portrayed and glamorized in a positive light, whereas drugs and substances that are even less lethal than alcohol are often seen in a more damning light. Alcohol is a drug. Period!
Alcohol is one of the most intoxicating drugs known to mankind, and the damage that alcohol causes on both the mind and the body can hardly be compared to any other drug that is commonly abused today! This is why Stonegate Center offers alcohol rehab in Texas in a luxurious setting where special programs have been created to treat alcohol addiction and alcohol use disorder.

Stonegate Center Understands What You are Going Through
The problem with alcohol is that, unlike many of the other commonly abused drugs today, alcohol is both physically and psychologically addictive. Drugs like marijuana and cocaine, for example, are not physically addictive. They are merely psychologically addictive, and yet, look how difficult it is for people to stop using and abusing marijuana and cocaine! That means that it’s twice as hard to stop using alcohol!
If a person who is addicted to alcohol were to stop using the substance on their own, they would face the possibility of harsh withdrawal symptoms. This is because the alcohol-addicted brain has become dependent on alcohol for survival, just as the brain depends on oxygen, nutrients, and water for survival. When you take away alcohol from a physically addicted person’s diet, the brain feels as though it is going without water or some other element that it needs for survival, and it sends the body into a state of illness to let it know that it needs to acquire and consume alcohol.
People who do not have alcohol dependency issues can not imagine what this feels like! The best way that some people have tried to explain it is that going without alcohol feels like being a fish out of water. Not fun! At our luxury alcohol rehab in Texas, we have the best alcohol addiction treatment staff that can make the withdrawal and detoxification process smooth and painless. That’s what we want to do for you.
How Does Alcohol Rehab Work?
For people with chronic alcohol use disorder, they will start out in detox for 24-72 hours. Don’t worry. Detox isn’t done in a basement or a locked room somewhere. You’ll be comfortable and have access to our facilities. Then, once you have finished detox, you will move to residential inpatient treatment for alcohol abuse. Of course, treatment doesn’t stop there. Stonegate Center provides comprehensive care for our patients, including outpatient, intensive outpatient, and sober living options. Our job is to give you the tools you need to put the bottle down and keep from picking it up again, and that is going to take time and commitment. Are you ready to change your life and recover from alcohol dependency? If so, we are here to help. Contact us.
