Alcoholism treatment must involve the
mind and body because in that alcoholism is a disease, alcoholism
treatment must heal this disease. Alcoholism treatment worth
anything accepts the widely accepted medical finding that
alcoholism is a progressive disease that will always get worse
if left untreated. Alcoholism treatment never passes moral
judgments or makes clients feel guilty about poor choices.
Doctors would never criticize a patient who had diabetes and
alcoholism treatment should be no different. There are four
symptoms alcoholism treatment must address: mental cravings,
loss of control, physical dependence and tolerance.

symptoms such as tremors, sweats, loss of coordination, exhaustion
and irritability. A physical exam is a necessary part of alcoholism
treatment in order to identify problems with the liver, stomach
or other physical ailments. Often drinkers can be unaware
of serious medical conditions because they are covered up
by the analgesic effects of alcohol.
Our psychologist addresses the emotional and
destructive thought patterns that need to be reversed in alcoholism
treatment. Frequently, emotional disorders are either covered
up by drinking or made worse by drinking. Spencer Recovery
Centers has a whole team of licensed counselors that can help
reshape thinking patterns and help our clients identify problems
early before they develop into a crisis. This is achieved
through a cognitive-behavioral approach. Once again addressing

sessions if appropriate are a cornerstone to recovery.
