Being addicted to alcohol is no picnic. We’ve all heard about it… that dirty little word called alcoholism. It’s such a strong and abrasive term, right? And how the heck can anyone really tell who’s got it anyway?! Furthermore, how do you tell who actually needs to go to alcohol rehab? I mean so what if Mom needs a few glasses of wine every night before she goes to bed. That doesn’t necessarily make her an alcoholic. Does it? I mean, sure, your buddy Bobby has made a bit of a habit out of having a few too many at the local bar down the street, but does that really make him the town drunk like everybody says he is? How about Dad? A couple of shots of Irish whiskey in his morning coffee make him more of an eccentric than it does an alcoholic… right?
Unfortunately, the sad truth about alcoholism lies just beneath the surface of all of these types of behavior. How do we tell who’s the alcoholic? How do we know who really needs alcohol rehab? Simple: take away the alcohol and you’ll quickly find out who’s just having fun and who’s got a larger than life problem on their hands.
Alcoholism is a disease, and, simply put, alcoholism kills. Whether through liver failure or a drunken driving accident, this deadly ailment claims lives daily. It not only ruins the lives of those who suffer from it, but it also destroys the families that alcoholics belong to and are responsible for. Because alcohol addiction is a disease, those who are afflicted can not truly be held responsible for the havoc they wreak on their jobs, personal lives and the lives of those around them. This catastrophic malady can be the catalyst for one of life’s most heinous downward spirals. The only true way to stop this is through knowledge, understanding, and alcohol treatment.

So what now? Well, that’s the question that millions of Americans ask themselves everyday. Too many times in our society, that question goes unanswered and the people who need help the most don’t get it. Is it wrong to think that a problem with alcohol addiction will just blow away with tomorrow’s breeze? Is it possible that somewhere down the line things will just right themselves and go back to normal? Well, ask yourself, if you sweep dirt under the rug, does it really go away?
Try as you may, you will never find a better solution to alcohol addiction and/or abuse than alcohol rehab. It is merely stating the obvious to say that nobody wants to admit to having issues with alcohol addiction. Who would? And although stating that you have an alcohol addiction is admirable, and the first step toward alcoholic recovery, it also means you may have the fight of your life ahead of you.

Alcohol rehabilitation has never been an easy task. Many would liken the pressure of having an alcohol addiction to the plight of Atlas, the man with the world on his shoulders. Since an alcohol addiction consumes so much of an addict’s life, alcoholics usually deal with a great amount of stress from trying to balance their daily responsibilities with this crippling disease, a weight many can not handle. Others would say that achieving sobriety is like ice skating uphill while bearing Atlas’ burden at the same time. In some cases that could very well be true; however, despite the amount of truth in that statement, there is help.
Okay. Now you know there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. At least that’s what everyone has told you. So where do you go from here? Most people who find themselves looking for an alcohol treatment center end their search with the same question… “How do I know which alcohol rehab program is right for me?” The best way to answer that question would be to ask yourself what you hope to gain from the alcohol treatment program of your choice. If your goal is to fully obtain sobriety through an individualized treatment program, one that offers the utmost in privacy, confidentiality, and treatment options, then your answer is an easy one. You need The Watershed.
