How can I quit drinking?
An alcoholic patient should never give up drinking on their own. It is necessary to have medical and therapeutical support, a successful and risk-free detoxification being critical. If not, there is a risk of suffering from diverse kinds of alterations such as hallucinations, depression, confusion, paranoia, unease, fatigue, anxiety, convulsions, nausea, sweating, palpitations, psychotic breaks, even reaching delirium tremens and, on occasion, leading to death.
Why is it so difficult? It is a social addiction
The marked social dimension of this drug and the great acceptance it enjoys make certain patterns and ways of consumption be seen as normal, although they are actually clearly pathological.
Alcohol consumption can provoke an intense physical symptomatology. The development of the dependency, independently of its duration, is the same: at first, there is a great tolerance to the toxin, the drinker seems to have an unlimited capability to metabolize it without affecting the organism. In time, the need to drink more and more arises as a consequence of the dependency process.
What are the main risks of abuse and addiction?
Alcohol affects every organ of the body and can damage the development of the fetus. The intoxication can damage brain functions and motor skills; intense use can increase the risk of certain types of cancer, brain attacks and liver illnesses.

The success of the detoxification treatment
A new way of doing things
Through our alcohol addiction treatment, we favour an internal change in the addict, making them understand how their illness works and giving them effective tools to face the symptoms of their sickness. It is necessary to modify habits, beliefs and behaviours through continuous learning and support. This way, they will be once again an individual, autonomous and independent person.
The ultimate aim of the treatment that we give in HELP ADICCIONES is the rehabilitation of people under an addiction in any aspect of their lives, be it personal, social or work related.
It is not just about stopping consuming. In HELP ADICCIONES, besides detoxification from alcohol and abstinence, we promote a quality and dignified life by learning. This way, we can go through the good and bad situations in life with balance and satisfaction.
