Alcohol Addiction Program


In our society, alcohol holds an important role in social engagement and bonding. Alcohol is a legal substance, and it typically does not carry the stigmas of many other drugs. Social drinking is normalized, especially at celebrations, meals and sporting events.

While overindulging on liquor every now and then isn’t necessarily a sign of alcoholism, drinking can become problematic if it starts to interfere with your life. At Transformations By The Gulf, we provide alcohol rehab in Florida that is designed to help patients break free from addiction so they can move forward in happy, purposeful ways.

What Is Alcoholism?


Alcoholism — also known as alcohol use disorder — is characterized by compulsive drinking that can have physical, emotional and mental consequences. Alcohol causes changes at a chemical level within the body. It blocks signals between brain cells, which may lead to physical symptoms such as slurred speech, poor memory and slow reflexes.

In addition, alcohol releases endorphins in the brain. These feel-good chemicals can create an increased desire for more alcohol. Addiction sometimes begins when a person uses liquor to cope with a psychological need. For example, if someone feels depressed, he or she may turn to alcohol to ease the unhappiness.

Ethanol, an ingredient in adult beverages, is responsible for the symptoms associated with intoxication. The short-term effects of alcohol can include:

  • Impaired memory and judgment
  • Slurred speech
  • Vomiting
  • Headaches
  • Blackouts
  • Distorted vision

Alcohol may also result in a number of long-term effects, such as:

  • Heart, liver and nervous system damage
  • High blood pressure
  • Ulcers
  • Malnutrition
  • Birth defects

Each person has unique requirements in addiction treatment, but generally, an individual should seek a residential treatment program for addiction if he or she:


Is attempting to live sober for the first time
Suffers from a severe addiction and may require medical detox
Is a threat to others, self and/or has a non-supportive home life
Has or may have a co-occurring mental health disorder
Unsuccessful past outpatient treatment programs or support groups
