Alcohol Rehab Centers Usually Work
I have had the misfortune of growing up around my share of alcoholics,
and some of them would never even acknowledge that they have a drinking
For the ones that did, treatment at alcohol rehab centers seemed to do the
trick, but I have observed that it all comes down to what a person puts
into their rehabilitation program.
My uncle Marty had a severe drinking problem for many years, but he was
what I have sometimes heard referred to as a functional alcoholic. He did
drink heavily almost every night, but he also held down a full-time job and
provided for his family.
It was his wife who finally convinced him that he did have a problem and
recommended about three different alcohol rehab centers that were relatively
close to their home as possible options. Because he loved his family very
much and wanted to keep it together, he checked himself in to one and
really committed himself to change.
He has been sober for 12 years now, and has had only two relapses. He
said it is a daily struggle, that the relapses were the worst things he has
ever experienced and said he was in a bad situation on both occasions. He
takes it one day at a time, as the saying goes, and visits a number of
alcohol rehab centers these days to talk about his problem.
My cousin Kevin, on the other hand, has had a drinking problem for the
last few years and talked a lot about wanting to get sober. He said that
one day soon he'd devote himself to sobering up, but after a couple of
half-hearted attempts, he is still drinking a lot and on a regular basis.
He has visited a couple of alcohol rehab centers and always comes away
from those visits with a very enthusiastic and optimistic outlook, but it
always fades within a few weeks, and he is back to his old ways or
The fact of the matter is that a problem like alcoholism, and any addiction
really, requires constant diligence and commitment. Such problems are
solvable, but not without a lot of hard work and dedication to a program
that treats the underlying problem for the addiction.
Alcohol rehab centers seem to do just that, and judging by the number of
people in attendance at the meetings and regularly visiting the centers, they
appear to be places that people expect to work.
I am very fortunate that I have never had a problem with alcoholism, so I
have never had to actively participate in any of the programs offered at the
alcohol rehab centers I have visited with my uncle and cousin. If I did,
though, I know from experience that I would likely get as much out of it as
I put into the program.
