Learn more about our alcohol abuse treatment plan below.

Alcohol Abuse Treatment

Alcohol abuse is not a new phenomenon.  First recognized as a problem in the late 1700s, diagnosis and treatment for alcohol use disorders has advanced in leaps and bounds. 

One standard serving of alcohol is:

  • 5 ounces for wine. 
  • 12 ounces for beer.
  • 8 ounces for malt liquor.
  • 1.5 ounces of 80-proof liquor (like like whiskey).

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?

These are a lot of questions to answer, but alcohol abuse presents differently in each person.  If you can honestly answer yes to two or more of the questions above, you may need to consider whether you could have an AUD.  If you need someone to help you with answering these types of questions, seek a healthcare professional to review them with you or call our admissions line immediately. One of our admissions coordinators will help you determine the right choice to make about your substance abuse habits.
