What Is Alcohol Addiction?
Many times people wonder if they need alcohol detox. Some say they could give alcohol up, they just don’t want to. Although the indicators for whether you need alcoholic rehab are many and varied, the surest sign is that you have hurt or disappointed someone you love due to your drinking.
Often the loved ones of alcoholics are angry because they believe the alcoholic has chosen drinking over them. But by the time the addiction gets to that point, the alcoholic no longer has a choice. They have lost control of their drinking. Their friends and family may refuse to see or talk to them. They may lose their job, their house, their car, their health. And still they drink.
