How to permanently get rid of drinking?

In the modern world, there are many methods of getting rid of alcohol addiction: in this article, I will tell you about how to recover without consequences and many hospitals.
Is it possible today to cure alcoholism forever? What modern, scientifically proven methods of treatment of alcohol dependence exist today? What should be guided by the patient, so as not to be in the hands of charlatans?

Determination of the effectiveness of a method of treating alcoholism
Modern approaches to the treatment of addiction are based on promising data from scientific studies. The main outline is the recommendations that the World Health Organization has developed based on the analysis of various clinical cases and the generalization of a large amount of data. Modern scientific research, the medical use of a drug is unthinkable without specific criteria of evidence-based medicine. The rules for evidence-based medicine include a double-blind study – when the researcher does not know which drug he prescribes or prescribes a placebo (pacifier).

In this way, it is possible to achieve an independent assessment of the results of a study, whether it is established whether the treatment has made the effect or not. The researcher does not know in advance what the patient receives. Another way to study – correctly statistical processing of the results – when we can say for sure that a particular drug has changed the clinic of alcoholic disease in the direction of its relief. It is essential that another researcher, after reading a scientific report, could repeat it in his clinic and get a similar result.

Thus, as a rule, generalized, metacentric research results are applied when testing of a drug, method or method of treatment is carried out in several independent clinics. Summarizing the data of these studies, we can with a high degree of probability say that this or that method is effective in the majority of people suffering from alcohol dependence.

Stages of alcohol treatment
As it was in my case, the treatment of alcohol dependence can be divided into 3 phases:
The first. Treatment of severe alcohol intoxication – when large doses of alcohol poison a person, his helplessness can cause harm or even death. In other words, it is the treatment of alcohol withdrawal syndrome (hangover) and the actual alcoholic illness, addiction syndrome, because of which a person, perfectly aware of the harm that alcohol causes to him, suffering from intoxication, cannot get rid of it, as it was in me and these days were the hardest on the way to treatment, even despite the support of relatives.

Everyone knows that uncomplicated intoxication usually occurs when a person consumes alcohol at home, sometimes he can “bust,” this condition does not require medical intervention. A man slept, in the morning he experienced only weakness, discomfort.
If he does not suffer from alcohol dependence, this state passes very quickly, and the body returns to normal. But there are cases when the level of alcohol intoxication is high. Here you can already talk about alcohol stunning and even about alcoholic coma. In such a situation, a person needs resuscitation care.

As a rule, if left in a helpless state, he can die. For the treatment of alcohol intoxication used regular detoxification, forced diuresis.
Along with diuretics, the plasma-substituting solution is administered to the patient. Due to increased urination, the detoxification of the body occurs. Apply gastric lavage to remove residual alcohol. These funds stimulate the heart and respiratory system. These measures can be implemented in a specialized medical institution, and save a person whose body is poisoned by alcohol.

Second. Treatment of alcohol withdrawal syndrome is a crucial and exciting stage that I alone was challenging to control. If a person suffers from alcohol dependence, one of the main criteria for his condition is a hangover. A person takes alcohol, they cannot control the amount of alcohol consumed, as a rule, the next morning he feels terrible, and if he does not drink a dose, he will become worse and worse.

In this case, by drinking alcoholic beverages, it becomes easier for a person for a while, but then the weakness of the body returns and he has to drink again, this happens day after day. Toxic lesions of the body are increasing, and a person does not fulfill his professional and social functions, cannot serve himself, he is forced to seek drug treatment to stop these conditions.
Even though there are many different methods of treatment of withdrawal symptoms, most of them are quaky. Practice shows that the abstinence syndrome in alcoholism is treated with a limited number of drugs.

These are, first of all, benzodiazepine tranquilizers, which should be taken exclusively under the supervision of a physician, since they can be addictive. This is the use of vitamins, in particular, group B vitamins, thiamine, which is destroyed in an alcoholic environment (and, as is well known, nervous tissue cannot exist in the body without thiamine). This restoration of electrolytes is the administration of potassium, magnesium, sodium, and not necessarily in the form of a dropper. Perhaps the use of oral rehydration salts, which are often used for intestinal infections.

Healthy people do not always suffer from a hangover, however, once I felt that I had concomitant diseases, either caused by alcohol, or which appear naturally in the process of the vital activity of the organism, as it ages. If a person suffers from atrial fibrillation, then it becomes aggravated in alcohol withdrawal. With such a diagnosis as mine, it is necessary to apply anti-rhythmic.
In cases of hypertension at the stage of alcohol withdrawal, it increases significantly, blood pressure rises.

In such situations, it is vital to use individual antihypertensive drugs. Severe abstinence requires medical intervention and constant monitoring. Very often alcohol withdrawal is complicated by convulsive seizures, called alcoholic epilepsy. In this case, anticonvulsants are added to the above therapy, which consists of minerals, salts, vitamin B group, benzodiazepines.

Abstinent themselves have antiepileptic and anticonvulsant effects, but they can be enhanced with certain drugs. If a person seeks medical help, he will be helped to figure it out. It is acceptable in the case of severe swelling, high blood pressure, the appointment of diuretics, but with the correction of the mineral composition of the blood, by adding potassium salts.

Third. Treatment of addiction syndrome itself. A person can go “into the bout,” to overcome abstinence, or to turn to specialists, but he alone cannot completely stop the abuse of alcohol. Perhaps for some time he will hold on, but sooner or later he again has a strong desire, he comes up with an excuse for himself and, under his influence, begins to drink again and again – this goes on forever. How doctors stop abstinence, hangover, hard drinking, do not relieve a person from alcohol dependence. It is instead ambulance drugs, but only using them does not allow the process or the disease.

To cure alcohol dependence syndrome, there are a limited number of drugs and psychotherapeutic techniques. Alcohol, in addition to a biological problem, carries with it an ideological issue, therefore, without psychotherapeutic support for people suffering from alcoholism, it is tough to break the habit. There are quite clear methods that have proven their effectiveness – these are psychotherapeutic techniques based on partnerships, on information methods of communication between a doctor and a patient – cognitive and behavioral therapies.

These techniques are aimed at helping a person understand the mechanisms that are not previously recognized, their behavioral responses and strategies that contribute to the continuation of drunkenness. A person wonders why, refraining from alcohol, he suddenly finds himself in the place where his favorite brand of alcoholic beverages is sold, and cannot resist using it. The task of the narcologist is to explain to the person that he did not turn out to be in this place by chance, and he was led there by a poorly perceived attraction.

It is necessary to analyze the situation in such a way, to change the person’s behavioral strategies so that he can understand the reasons for his desire – to turn to the park where he often met with friends. This is the decision of the alcoholic dominant that exists in mind.

It is necessary to analyze the life of a person, his actions, behavior and help him correct them. In my case, the beloved girl who did not give up with me helped. Along with this, self-help groups prove to be very useful – when, without the presence of a doctor, people who have already overcome their alcohol addiction, explain to the newly arrived newcomer how best to get rid of the habit. They have certain traditions, postulates, guided by which a certain percentage of patients keep sobriety. So, modern approaches to the treatment of alcohol dependence are in the field of psychopharmacology and pharmacology.
