First Step Recovery Center Can Help
Next to smoking, nothing causes more disease and death in this country than alcohol abuse. Although the word “alcoholism” is rarely listed on a death certificate, alcohol causes or contributes to dozens of fatal illnesses — not to mention the alcohol-caused deaths from drunk driving, suicide, accidents, and violence. Then, of course, there is the path of devastation carved daily through jobs, school grades, driving records, and of most of all through families and children.
Detox and withdrawal treatment from alcoholism and alcohol use disorder can sometimes become very dangerous due to the alcohol detox symptoms of delirium tremens or “the DTs,” which can cause severe seizures and other severe complications. It becomes even more complicated when alcohol use is combined with pill addiction or other drug use. In these cases, it is extremely important to have proper medical consultation and supervision when you make your decision to get help in Victorville and surrounding areas.
Graduates of our therapeutic program are strongly encouraged to continue their introduction to this new abstinence-based lifestyle change by participating in our Continuing Care Program for relapse prevention and recovery enhancement. We will also introduce the principles of 12-Step Recovery and strongly encourage all of our clients from Lancaster to Apple Valley and more to engage with community recovery resources, including Alcoholics Anonymous and others when appropriate.
