Alcohol Addiction Q & A

What is alcohol addiction?

Alcohol addiction is a substance use disorder where you can’t control your drinking and depend on alcohol to get through the day. It interferes with your ability to work, damages relationships, and could lead to potentially life-threatening health problems like liver disease.

While many people enjoy the occasional alcoholic drink without ill effects, others develop an unhealthy relationship with alcohol. This potent drug is widely available and, therefore, a common cause of addiction in people of all ages.

You might develop alcohol dependence, finding it impossible to go a day without drinking. Physical and psychological changes occur as your consumption increases, resulting in addiction. Stopping drinking could make you severely ill with withdrawal symptoms at this stage.

How do I overcome alcohol addiction?

Overcoming alcohol addiction is challenging. You need to reduce your physical dependence on alcohol and work through the unpleasant withdrawal stage while avoiding emotional or environmental triggers that make you start drinking again.

Some people find talk therapy helpful, especially when they have family and friends to support them. Drug rehabilitation programs that combine anti-withdrawal medication with psychotherapy (medication-assisted treatment) help many people. 

Support organizations like Alcoholics Anonymous can also be invaluable.

Some people don’t have the support needed or have additional health and social problems that make withdrawal even harder. If, for any reason, you struggle to stop drinking, ketamine is an innovative treatment option that could help.

Ketamine helps people with alcohol addiction stay sober, avoid the triggers that lead to relapse drinking, and manage their alcohol cravings.

How does ketamine help my alcohol addiction?

Ketamine helps your brain overcome alcohol addiction by increasing the production of the chemical glutamate. This neurotransmitter enables nerve cells to communicate and create new pathways essential for healthy brain function.

Ketalink Ketamine Center uses intravenous (IV) ketamine treatments to help patients with alcohol addiction. Ketamine infusions also relieve symptoms like depression and anxiety that often make alcohol cravings worse.

There’s no cure for alcohol addiction, but ketamine enables you to make the positive changes necessary for better mental and physical health and long-term sobriety.
