Alcoholism treatment in Kherson
Alcohol addiction is a condition that makes a person degrade and behave asocial. Often, the inability to refuse the use of strong drinks becomes the cause of conflicts with relatives and friends. While alcoholism is considered promiscuous by many people, it is actually a severe chemical addiction that enslaves the mind and body. Ethanol affects the cerebral cortex and other important systems, paralyzes the will of a person and makes resistance impossible. The best thing to do in this situation is to realize your addiction and pass alcoholism treatment in Kherson .
If your friend or relative cannot get out of the vicious circle, do not give in to persuasion and arguments of reason, try to convince him to start rehabilitation. Overcoming addiction under the guidance of experienced specialists is a real opportunity to change a person, return him to his family and society.
How to identify alcohol dependence: main stages
The disease has three stages. In the first stage, alcohol is steadily associated with pleasure, helps to feel content with life and relax. During this period, few people recognize the alcohol addiction of their loved one, a person just seems to be the soul of the company, a lover of fun. The alcoholic himself also does not understand that he is sick and is sure that he can give up alcohol and start leading a sober life at any time.
In fact, the disease is progressing. The first thing that should be alarming is the loss of the protective gag reflex, the acquisition of the ability to drink rather large doses of alcohol and not feel bad at the same time. If you fail to stop in time, a severe degree of intoxication sets in with all the ensuing consequences.
Other signs of emerging alcohol addiction:
- Irresistible urge to drink, impossibility of refuse it.
- The amount of alcohol consumed increases greatly.
Statistics are relentless: at the first stage, when a person is still relatively easy to completely get rid of addiction, most alcoholics do not turn to a specialist for help. Therefore, the disease moves on to the next stage. The patient begins to drink more, he develops a hangover syndrome and a plateau of tolerance:
- Hangover syndrome – feeling unwell, accompanied by an irresistible desire to get drunk. Its main signs are depression, increased fatigue, restless sleep, general weakness, severe headaches.
- The plateau of tolerance is a manifold increase in the amount of alcohol required to get drunk.
By the way, if a person lives separately from his relatives, does not maintain constant communication with them, then they may not be aware of his dependence. At the second stage, alcoholics drink cyclically (hard drinking). In parallel with the increase in dependence, the human personality begins to degrade rapidly, so that alcoholism treatment in Kherson becomes even more necessary.
The third stage is characterized by drunken or constant drunkenness, a rapid deterioration in well-being, loss of life guidelines. During this period, the alcoholic’s body cannot take large doses of alcohol at a time. Therefore, he drinks a little, but almost around the clock. If the patient is drunk, then after getting out of the binge the stage of the hangover can last up to a month.
Specialists of the “Transformation” rehabilitation center know that the third stage of alcoholism in men and women is the most serious condition, often accompanied by conflicts with relatives. But at the same time, we are sure that a cure is possible and an alcoholic cannot be refused. If he realizes that drinking is a road to nowhere, asks for help, send him to treatment for alcoholism in Kherson .

Acknowledging Our Powerlessness: The first step in the program for the addict is to admit that he is no longer in control of his own life. Understanding that we cannot save our lives on our own is the first step to our recovery.
In his struggle with the disease, the patient can enlist the help of God, such as he sees him.
The patient learns to trust the power that leads him to recovery; he completely delegates control of his life to this power.
The stage of careful introspection: the patient reveals his hidden fears and negative experiences to the group in order to understand the root cause of the development of the disease.
