Alcoholism is a debilitating disease that haunts men at every turn. It can cripple your entire life as it impacts social, professional, and family relationships. You may have gotten to the point where you feel as though there’s no escaping the constant despair. Fortunately, there’s hope. Located in Southern California, Serenity Lodge offers a variety of life-changing alcohol recovery programs for men.
Do I Have a Drinking Problem?
If you’re reading this, you at least suspect that you have a problem. However, there’s also a chance that you may be on the fence about whether or not you have an alcohol addiction. Start by asking yourself these questions:
- Do I find it hard to stop drinking after a couple of drinks?
- Are there times when I end up blackout drunk?
- Is drinking impacting my work or school performance?
- Do my family and friends comment frequently about my drinking?
- Do I try to rationalize my drinking whenever family and friends suggest that I drink too much?
Answering “yes” to even one of these questions is cause for concern. However, our compassionate staff members—many of who are in recovery themselves—aren’t here to judge you. Many of them have been in your shoes, and they can be your guides to a better life.
Which Alcohol Recovery Programs Are Right for Me?
Understand that there’s no one path to recovery. What works well for one man may not necessarily be the best option for you. That’s why Serenity Lodge offers multiple levels of care and individualized addiction treatment programs to help all men recover regardless of their situations.
For instance, many experts believe that residential inpatient treatment is the best starting point for recovery. Clients stay on our amenity-rich 22-acre grounds and receive comprehensive care under 24/7 supervision. Especially for individuals in early recovery, it’s the perfect setting to get away from real-world stress and focus solely on healing. Additionally, the setting helps men establish lifelong bonds with peers in recovery.
However, some men simply aren’t able to simply leave life behind. Working professionals and single parents may find it hard to just get away. For these men, an intensive outpatient program may be best. Our IOP gives men flexibility without sacrificing high-quality addiction therapy approaches. In addition, IOP can also serve as a step-down solution after residential treatment ends.
Many men stuck in the grips of an alcohol addiction have an undiagnosed mental health disorder. Individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, and unresolved trauma may self-medicate in an effort to make their problems go away. Unfortunately, drinking often makes these issues even worse. Conversely, alcohol addiction can also lead to the development of mental illness.
No matter which issue came first, it’s important to treat both issues simultaneously for the best chance of recovery. Dual diagnosis treatment addresses the underlying causes of addiction. Through intensive therapy sessions, therapists and psychiatrists teach men the tools and coping skills they need in order to live successful post-treatment lives.
