What is Alcohol Rehab?

What is Alcohol RehabWhat is alcohol rehab? Many people ask this question when they know they need help, but they are unsure as to what lies ahead. The truth is, there is no quick fix for addiction. The journey to recovery takes time, strength, and dedication. Yet, although challenging, choosing to attend alcohol rehab can be one of the most rewarding decisions you could possibly make. The rewards gained are well worth stretching out of your comfort zone. Like any journey, the road to recovery is a step by step process.

What can I Expect from Alcohol Rehab?

The main steps involved in alcohol rehab include:

  • Intake
  • Detoxification
  • Rehabilitation
  • Aftercare/Ongoing Recovery

Initial Intake

Intake is the process of determining which alcohol rehab programs or rehab centers are right for you. During this stage it is vital to ask questions in order to get the most benefit out of treatment. Once you have made a decision on what facility to attend, diagnostic tests and screenings will determine what programs are most suitable for your unique needs.

Alcohol Detoxification

Before you can begin therapy (during the rehabilitation phase) you must first undergo detoxification. Detox is the process of removing all traces of alcohol from the body. Alcohol detox can be very unpleasant and in severe cases, fatal, so it is of utmost importance that you detox at an accredited treatment facility. This way medical professionals will be standing by around the clock to administer the medications necessary to ease this process.

After detoxification, clients then transition into alcohol rehab. Throughout rehabilitation you will be engaged in both individual and group therapy sessions that address your negative habits and help you develop positive ways in which to change them. Rehabilitation programming will vary based on factors contributing to your unique addiction story.


Many people wrongly assume that recovery ends once your time in treatment has come to a close. In reality, recovery is a lifelong process that requires sustained maintenance. Addiction aftercare is the process of preparing yourself for a lifetime of sobriety. Relapse prevention programs, sober living communities, and attending support groups are just some components that lead to recovery success.
