Delving into Alcohol Use Disorder and Its Treatments

Alcohol use disorder (AUD) is a chronic relapsing brain disorder characterized by an impaired ability to stop or control alcohol use despite adverse social, occupational, or health consequences. It encompasses conditions that people often refer to as alcoholism or alcohol addiction and is not just about drinking excessively—it also involves a mental preoccupation with alcohol.

Treatment for AUD is designed for anyone struggling with alcohol dependence, misuse, or addiction. It typically involves a combination of individual and group therapy, medications, detoxification, coping strategies, and support systems. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing (MI), and medications like Naltrexone or Acamprosate can be part of a comprehensive treatment approach. Each plan is tailored to the individual, taking into account the severity of the AUD, any co-existing mental health conditions, and the person’s unique life circumstances.

Mental and Emotional Challenges Linked to Alcohol Use Disorder

AUD often co-exists with other mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. The relationship is complex—while some may drink to cope with psychological distress, prolonged alcohol use can also lead to the development of such conditions.

Common emotional and psychological challenges include feelings of guilt, shame, hopelessness, and low self-esteem. Furthermore, the negative impact on work, relationships, and overall quality of life can exacerbate these feelings. It’s essential to understand that AUD isn’t a moral failing—it’s a recognized medical condition that requires professional treatment.

Journey through Alcohol Use Disorder Treatment Sessions

During alcohol use disorder treatment, individuals can expect a compassionate and supportive environment to aid their recovery. The process generally involves several stages, starting with a comprehensive assessment to understand the extent of alcohol misuse and identify co-occurring conditions.

Therapy sessions play a vital role in treatment, with various modalities such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational enhancement therapy, and family therapy being employed. These sessions assist individuals in developing coping strategies, understanding triggers, and cultivating healthier behaviors.

Medical interventions, including medications to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms, may be utilized to support the treatment process. 

Alcohol use disorder treatment can help individuals achieve sobriety, regain control of their lives, and rebuild relationships. By addressing underlying emotional and psychological issues, individuals can work toward lasting recovery, ensuring a healthier and more fulfilling future.

I was recommended by a friend who said this place has helped her a lot. I was hesitant because of my experience with previous psychiatrists. But Janice is great. She really pays attention to my concerns, and I have been feeling such a sense of well being since having serviced with her. She is also extremely consistent. Sometimes our session lasts about 20 minutes or less because I hardly have any concerns regarding my medications. I appreciate her ability to really prescribe things that help long term. She also prescribed sleeping meds for my insomnia and I been sleeping earlier and better. I don’t wake up tired of weak. Thank you Janice 🙂

Dr. V. Rudoy is a wonderful doctor. Very professional and attentive. I have been seeing him for psychiatric care for a number of years and highly recommend him and this office in general. I’ve seen other psychiatric professionals who work with Dr. Rudoy here on occasion and they are all very competent and warm-hearted.

I have seen many many psychiatrists and Dr. Natalie Rimar is really as good as they come in this field. She is very well versed in the medical field and she gives you the time and attention every patient deserves as opposed to just going to any psychiatrist them giving just 5 minutes of their time and saying ok will RX you XYZ medication I sent it to your pharmacy goodbye. Dr. Rimar actually cares about her clients and takes her profession very seriously. Thank you Again!

I met with Mary Parker, a nurse practioner. She was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. After asking questions about my history, she discussed different treatment possibilities. I was happy with the session and look forward to meeting with her again on a regular basis
