Alcohol Abuse Treatment in Cincinnati, Ohio 


Hotel California by the Sea created a specialized treatment program for people suffering from mild-to-severe alcohol abuse and other co-occurring mental health issues. 

Contrary to popular belief, alcohol is a drug. Although alcohol is legal to purchase and consume (and is highly socially acceptable) over the age of 21 in the United States, it can still cause significant physical and psychological damage to many people. 

Being a drug, alcohol is highly addictive and extremely difficult to stop using, even when we want to quit. 

This is why an alcohol use disorder is considered substance abuse. Being an alcoholic means that you cannot stop drinking, even though you are experiencing negative effects that you do not want anymore.

The American Psychological Association explains that an alcohol use disorder is considered a mental health disorder.  “Addiction is a chronic disorder with biological, psychological, social and environmental factors influencing its development and maintenance. Heightened desire to re-experience use of the substance or behavior, potentially influenced by psychological (e.g., stress, history of trauma), social (e.g., family or friends’ use of a substance), and environmental factors (e.g., accessibility of a substance, low cost) can lead to regular use/exposure, with chronic use/exposure leading to brain changes.” 

But do you have an alcohol use disorder?  And if so, how can you just stop drinking?  You’re much different from other people you know, so how can someone help you?  How would you even go about starting such a scary process?   

Our treatment facility at Hotel California by the Sea in Cincinnati, Ohio, has the answers for you to these questions and many, many more.  We are here to help people find the answers that they need.  So let’s start with that first question.   

Do I Have An Alcohol Use Disorder?


The National Institutes of Health have a list of symptoms to help you determine if you have an alcohol use disorder. Ask yourself these questions, thinking about the past year. 

  • Have you ever ended up drinking more or longer than you meant to?  
  • Have you gotten into situations or exhibited risky behaviors that could have or did get you hurt, like driving while drinking, using dangerous machinery while under the influence, hanging out in a dangerous area, or having unsafe sex?   
  • Did you have to drink much more than you used to in order to get the same effect that you desire?   
  • Have you found that the same amount of drinks you usually drink don’t have as much of an effect as they used to?  
  • Have you continued drinking, even if you started feeling depressed or anxious? 
  • Have you been arrested or had other legal problems due to your drinking? 
  • Have you stopped caring about activities that used to be important, pleasurable, or interesting to you, in lieu of being able to drink more, or more often?   
  • Have you ever lost track of time–meaning, had a memory blackout? 
  • Have you spent a lot of time drinking? 
  • Do you continue to drink, even though it is causing relationship troubles between you and your family, friends, or loved ones? 
  • Has drinking or being hungover from drinking interfered with you taking care of yourself, your home, or your family? 
  • Has drinking caused trouble for you in work or in school? 
  • Have you wanted to cut down or stop drinking, yet you couldn’t? 
  • Have you had withdrawal symptoms when you’re not drinking, like feeling shaky, being restless, nausea, trouble sleeping, sweating, a racing heart, or a seizure?  Have you ever felt the sense that something was there, but really it was not? 

As everyone keeps saying, we are experiencing unusual, uncertain, and challenging times.  It is no surprise that many of us would turn to drugs or alcohol.  Put these crazy times together with an answer of even four “yeses” to the questions above, and it may be obvious that you need to call Hotel California by the Sea in Cincinnati at 513.268.1073.  Or, chat live with one of our amazing, compassionate, and knowledgeable experts, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  We are here for you.
