The nurses were really nice but the doctors were mia. I was admitted Tuesday 11/27/12 and I left Friday 11/30/12. During my time there I was in the adult program with men and women from 19 to 60 something. The other people were in there for a range of things mostly drugs. I was scared when I first arrived because I am 19 and was there involuntarily for trying to kill myself and arriving with me was a lady that was going crazy crying and hugging people. I didn't know what I had gotten myself into. The super nice security guard led me to where I would be staying. To my surprise everyone there was nice and unviolent. I learned so much from talking to the other patients I didn't learn anything from the doctors that were there random times. They changed my doctor once and I was left in the dark about that and about the medicine they were trying to make me take. The doctor prescribed me medicine without saying more than two sentences to me. I refused the medication because I didn't know any side effects or whatever. When I got discharged my doctor whoever that was supposed to be at that point was Mia and told the nurse I was free to go over the phone. The programs they had were ineffective and I say this because I learned absolutely no coping skills from them and a lot of the patients were on their 5 th or 6th time there. It was relaxing to get away from life but it would have been nice to learn how to deal with what was going on with me. THE FOOD THEY FED ME WAS DELICIOUS EVERY MEAL!!!!!!! So the nice nurses and food was the highlight.
Tips & Advices
  • Talk about specific consequences of their drinking.
  • Choose a time soon after the person experiences a drinking-related problem (missing a shift at work, for example).
  • Do not threaten, guilt, lecture, preach, or use negative labels.
  • Do not try to discuss alcoholism when the person is intoxicated.
Therapists, psychologists, and psychiatrists who specialize in the condition can all diagnose and treat alcoholism. People with alcohol-related concerns can also consult their general practitioner, who will refer them to a specialist.
Detoxification is a medically supervised period of alcohol withdrawal to allow the body to purge itself. A doctor or treatment specialist closely monitors a patient to ensure the symptoms of withdrawal do not cause harm. Side effects of alcohol detoxification include:
  • Sweating
  • Vomiting
  • Elevated heart rate
  • High blood pressure
  • Tremors
  • Nausea
  • Sleep issues
  • Paranoia or anxiety
  • Hallucinations
  • Seizures
The cost of addiction treatment varies depending on the type of facility, amenities offered, treatment provided, and size and length of the program. Detoxification ranges from $1,000 to $15,000. Inpatient facilities cost anywhere from $6,000 to $30,000 for a 30-day program and include detoxing. Outpatient programs can cost $500 per session.
Outpatient alcoholism treatment is a part-time form of rehabilitation. Patients continue their normal lives during the day and return to the treatment facility several times per week. Outpatient treatment is generally cheaper than inpatient and can be helpful for people with less severe addictions. Inpatient treatment programs require patients to stay at the facility 24/7 until the completion of the program. They provide a highly controlled environment for patients to overcome their addictions without the distractions or temptations of everyday life. These clinics provide round-the-clock medical care and often include hours of group and personal therapy. Inpatient programs are beneficial for people with severe addictions or those who have overdosed.
