Reviews at a Glance
- Alcohol Rehab
Alcohol is one of the more dangerous substances of abuse, even in the early stages of drinking; alcoholics can suffer neurological, liver and other organ damage. Alcohol robs the brain of its natural ability to calm upset and anxiety. With continual drinking on a daily basis, the alcoholic’s thinking becomes more disorganized and he or she is less able to cope with the emotional stresses of life. When drinking ceases, the alcoholic suffers increasing anxiety during the day and tremendous difficulty sleeping at night. Even the detoxification process can be fatal if not treated in a closely monitored, medical environment. At CASA Recovery, our alcohol rehab program always involves a thorough medical assessment, typically followed by a closely monitored medical detoxification.
- CASA Recovery's Treatment Program
