Alcohol addiction occupies a unique place in American culture since alcohol is one of the few mind-altering substances that is readily available, heavily advertised, and glorified in the media.

At New Bridge Foundation®, our alcohol treatment program matches our clients with an experienced team of clinicians and medical experts who assist them through a diverse array of interventions. Afterward, clients are better equipped to live happier, healthier, and sober lives. To learn more about our alcohol addiction treatment program, read below and call 866.772.8491.
How Does New Bridge Foundation® Treat Alcohol Addiction?
There is no simple cure for those struggling with alcohol addiction. Each client’s experience with addiction is unique, and each client requires a unique approach to treatment. A variety of factors can help determine which services might be best for you, including your history of alcohol use, your co-occurring mental health concerns, your social environment, and more. Alcohol addiction treatment frequently involves detox, followed by evidence-based treatment, holistic treatment, and individual and group counseling.
Alcohol Addiction Treatment Options
First and foremost, clients who have become physically addicted to alcohol need to begin their treatment with detox. Detox is the process by which all of the alcohol is removed from your body. Clients going through detox will experience some symptoms of withdrawal, but these can be alleviated by interventions monitored by our team of experts. Since detox can be dangerous, it should not be attempted alone. The medical and clinical staff at New Bridge Foundation® can support you and provide care and supervision through the detox process.
The cornerstone of alcohol addiction treatment is evidence-based treatment. These treatments help treat addiction. They are an essential piece of any effective treatment program. These treatments can include:
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
- Motivational Interviewing
- Individual and group counseling
Holistic treatment therapies address addiction by focusing on the body, mind, and spirit. Holistic approaches to alcohol addiction recovery emphasize the need to treat the client as a whole per-son, focusing on general health and wellness in addition to traditional treatment approaches. A holistic program can include:
- Recreational therapy
- Music therapy
- Guided meditation
- Breathing exercises
Both individual and group counseling are important components in alcohol addiction recovery. Support groups have been found to be extremely useful for clients to form healthy, sober support networks. Addiction can be isolating and is often accompanied by co-occurring mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression. In these situations, the validation brought by support groups is invaluable. While participating in group counseling, clients learn more about themselves and their addiction while fostering the same growth in their fellow group members.
Additionally, individuals also benefit from individual counseling which provides another avenue to learn about oneself, one’s addiction, while identifying coping strategies. Both individual and group counseling provide a safe and confidential space to share, learn, and grow for those struggling with addiction.
