Alcohol

An ancient and addictive drug

Ordinarily, people do not think of alcohol as a drug, but that is exactly what it is, and like any drug, it can be abused in the sense of used for nonmedical purposes. It can also become addictive, producing withdrawal symptoms when the addict is denied the drug. Delirium tremens, marked by nightmares, disorientation and agitation, is a common alcohol withdrawal symptom; others include seizures and agitation. Family members, in addition to the individuals themselves, often suffer, and terribly so.

Many addicts, either on their own or at the insistence of those closest to them (or sometimes under the orders of a judge, who may require it as an alternative to a prison sentence), eventually acknowledge the need to overcome their problem and return to a normal, healthy life. Alcohol rehab is available for such people, but it always requires hard work on the part of the person who wishes to reform. Unfortunately, many patients go back to alcohol soon after completing the rehabilitation program.

What typically happens in alcohol rehab

Alcohol rehab programs vary greatly in their approaches, but their are always certain things that must be done for rehabilitation to be possible. Since in many cases the body, and not just the mind, has become physically dependent on the drug, the body must first be detoxified. This may require a supervised medical detox so that he or she does not experience painful withdrawal symptoms. Once that is done, the patient can move on to individual and group therapy to work out the ways of thinking that are common with addiction. All aspects of addiction must be treated.

The professionals who work at alcohol rehab centers know that they must adjust their methods of treatment to fit each patient, for no two of their cases are exactly the same; these people differ in their age, religious backgrounds, level of addiction and length of addiction. After detox it is recommended to spend time in an inpatient rehab often followed by a halfway house for the most hopeful transition into a live of recovery.

When young adults head off to college they are faced with a new found freedom from a life that has more or less been supervised by their parents thus far. Clearly college is supposed to be about furthering education and finding a career path, however, with the reigns loosened, college also becomes a school for partying, which typically involves drugs and alcohol these days.

In a 2002 to 2013 study, research revealed that roughly 20% of full-time college students ages 18 to 22 drink alcohol and use illegal drugs. Many of these young men and women begin experimenting with substances in their first year in college.

The same 2002 to 2013 study determined that, each year, 383,000 students used marijuana for their first time, amounting to an average of 1,000 students a day. Around 450,000 underage students began drinking alcohol each year. More disturbingly, the estimated number of college students who started using prescription painkillers like Oxycontin and Percocet was 251,000 students in one year.

A successful college experience most definitely involves getting to class, passing exams and discovering a passion. Along with that, young people learn how to socialize as adults. Unfortunately, in the culture today, socializing for young adults involves drinking and drugs in a big way. There’s nothing wrong with cutting loose a bit and living while we’re young, but there is a fine line between just having a good time and opening a valve that could lead to serious alcohol and substance abuse problems.
