While having a few drinks to celebrate with friends on the weekend may seem innocent, it can quickly turn into substance abuse. Millions of Americans each year struggle with binge drinking and alcohol abuse. 

Gloria Rehab works to make substance abuse treatment accessible regardless of health care coverage. We work to cover a variety of insurance plans to ensure you have the access you need.

Riverside Alcohol Rehab: About Alcohol Substance Abuse

Alcohol Abuse Statistics

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, here are some statistics on alcohol use:

  • Around 86% of people 18 and older report that they have drank alcohol at least once in their lives.
  • Around 26% of people report that they binge drink.
  • Around 14.5 million people aged 12 and up meet the criteria for Alcohol Use Disorders.

Is it Time to get Alcohol Addiction Treatment?

You may be wondering if it is time to finally seek treatment for your alcohol addiction and drug abuse. Consider the following statements:

  • You often drink alone, isolate yourself to drink, or hide the amount you drink from those around you.
  • You are experiencing financial loss or are going into debt in order to purchase alcohol.
  • You’re experiencing increased mental health symptoms, like lack of interest, anxiety, depression, or anger.
  • You’re experiencing physical symptoms like headaches, insomnia, excessive sleeping, bad breath or dental issues, blurry vision, weight and diet changes, or liver and kidney issues.
  • You immediately feel withdrawal side effects if you go tooling without drinking. You need to drink more to keep symptoms at bay and function throughout the day.

If you’ve found yourself agreeing to these statements, it may be time to go and seek professional addiction and mental health services.

What Does Alcohol Addiction Treatment Involve?

If it’s your first time exploring addiction treatment programs, you may be wondering what all is involved and what to expect. Depending on the treatment programs or treatment centers you choose, here are some common offerings.

Nutritional Support


This is the first step to all treatment programs. When arriving at the treatment facility, you will complete a background questionnaire and intake screening.
These involve your medical history, substance use disorder history, family history, as well as other important information. If you answer these questions honestly, your treatment providers will be able to establish an individualized treatment plan for you.

Medical Detox

Usually, before entering residential treatment programs or outpatient treatment programs, you will need to complete a medical detox process.
Here you will be monitored around the clock as you begin the withdrawal process, which can last from several hours to several days. Your providers may recommend medication assisted treatment, which helps to ease cravings and alleviate side effects. 

Fun While You

Inpatient Treatment 

Also called residential treatment, this model involves living at the treatment center for a certain period of time while you complete treatment.
You will have access to individual counseling, group counseling, as well as other therapists and therapeutic activities to enhance the recovery process and your well being.

Outpatient Treatment

Once you have finished residential treatment, you will likely be able to move to an outpatient treatment model. This model is also a good option for those that have completed detox and have a good support network at home that can help aid in recovery. In outpatient treatment programs, you will still have access to the same programs as residential treatment like counseling and support groups.
There are two main forms of outpatient programs, intensive outpatient and standard outpatient. Intensive outpatient is more rigorous, having you at the treatment center for anywhere from 15-40 hours per week. Standard outpatient is slightly more flexible and may give you options in which times and programs you attend.

When you are ready to discharge from your treatment program, you will likely have some aftercare and discharge planning involved. You will get to meet with your treatment providers to discuss plans for discharge, which can include financial planning, employment assistance, medical and mental health services, as well as sober living activities and contacts. 

Mental Health Services and Addiction Treatment

It is no surprise that mental health and substance abuse go hand in hand. Often, mental illness can cause substance abuse, or, the trauma experienced from substance use disorders can cause additional mental health disorders. 

Some of the most common co-occurring disorders include anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, eating disorders, PTSD, bipolar disorder, and borderline personality disorder. 

Gloria Rehab offers innovative dual diagnosis treatment programs that work to address both your mental health as well as your substance use.
