Being an alcoholic does not mean that a person just drinks a lot of alcohol. It means that they cannot control how much alcohol they drink. No matter how badly they want to, once they take one drink, they cannot stop drinking.
To be diagnosed with alcoholism, a person has to have three of these symptoms in the past year
They feel like they have to drink alcohol
They cannot control when they start drinking; when they stop drinking; or how much they drink
They get alcohol withdrawal symptoms when they stop drinking
They have to drink more and more alcohol to feel drunk (this is called tolerance)
They spend less time doing things they used to enjoy, because they are spending so much time drinking. They spend a lot of time getting alcohol, drinking alcohol, or feeling sick from drinking too much.
They keep drinking even though they know it is causing serious problems in their life.

A Better Life Treatment[/caption]
Current Studies have shown direct correlation between substance abuse disorder and impaired brain function. When you abuse drugs, alcohol, or prescribed medication, you are causing a chemical imbalance in your brain. As such, our treatment model is designed to target body, mind and spirit to restore this imbalance and re-wire your brain so that you can stay clean, sober and healthy.
Not only is addiction a brain disease but it is chronic in nature, much like diabetes, heart disease or cancer — it requires lifelong monitoring and management.
