Alcohol addiction can occur for various reasons, of which include stress and learned behavior. Whatever the case, addiction can cause the afflicted individual to suffer greatly, as well as their loved ones.

If you’re struggling with alcohol addiction, the counselors at Thriveworks Waltham are ready and eager to help.

What Is Addiction Counseling? Do I Need It?

Many times, those who face alcohol addiction don’t even realize they have a problem (or, they don’t want to admit they have a problem). For this reason alone, it’s important to make yourself aware of the signs and symptoms. Individuals with alcohol addiction often…

·      Suffer negative side effects from drinking, such as nausea and insomnia

·      Plan to change their drinking habits, but have yet to do so

·      Fail their responsibilities because of their drinking habits

·      Spend more time drinking then they initially intended

·      Stop engaging in their favorite activities

The good news is your therapist or counselor can help you to manage your alcohol addiction and, in turn, all of the problems that come with it. While your specific treatment plan will depend on your specific case, addiction counseling often involves understanding unhealthy habits, adopting healthier habits, and ultimately learning to manage the addiction in your everyday.
