Alcohol Addiction and Treatment

Many who come to New Dawn Treatment Center for help with alcoholism may not identify past trauma as one of the reasons they are struggling. Current research is uncovering the link between trauma and alcoholism. By some estimates, over two-thirds of people seeking treatment for alcohol abuse and drug addiction report one or more traumatic life experience.

In fact, among men diagnosed with PTSD, alcohol and drug abuse and addiction is the most common co-occurring disorder, followed by depression. Our program is specifically designed to treat alcoholism as well as the trauma that may be fueling it.

Alcohol abuse starts differently for everyone. People drink alcohol to socialize, wind down, or forget personal issues in their lives. However, there’s a fine line between a heavy drinker and an alcoholic, especially when it comes to their tolerance, concentration, and inhibitions. If you’re drinking alcohol in excess to blunt your emotions or feel better on a regular basis, then your relationship with alcohol has already been tarnished and you need a proper rehabilitation process. Alcohol tolerance differs from one person to another. However, addiction is detrimental by nature and if you can feel a tugging in the back of your mind that’s suggesting you need help, then you already know that recovery and sober living is the right solution.

We utilize a variety of techniques when treating addiction including:

  • Physical and Psychological Assessments
  • Drug Detox
  • Individualized Treatment Plans
  • Family Integrated Treatment and Therapy
  • Group and Individual Therapy
  • Behavioral Therapies

Each program is completely personalized to the individual as well as the drug addiction. Our drug addiction treatment approach is simple: finding underlying causes of drug addiction and personalizing treatment programs accordingly. Our goal is to provide drug addicts the highest level of personalized drug addiction treatment possible while staying in our peaceful residential treatment center.
