Florida Alcohol Rehab Needed for Alcohol Use Disorder
You may feel as though alcohol has taken control of your life. If you fear that you are struggling with problematic alcohol use, you are not alone. More than 100 million people across the globe suffer from an alcohol use disorder.  The help you need to overcome alcohol is available. Spring Gardens Recovery, the premier Florida alcohol rehab center, has the resources and compassionate experience necessary to help you reclaim your life.
What is Alcohol Use Disorder?
Alcohol use disorder is the unhealthy abuse or misuse of alcohol. Those suffering from it have a mental and physical dependence or addiction to alcohol. Individuals are unable to control consumption despite the consequences. This disorder typically involves binge-drinking or chronic use. Both forms of alcohol intake can have dangerous and often life-threatening effects on the body. Unfortunately, alcohol use contributes to over 200 diseases or conditions, including cancers, liver destruction, and injuries. 
Symptoms of Alcohol Use Disorder
Although alcohol use disorder does not look the same in every individual, there are a few concerning signs you should be aware of. You or someone you love could be struggling with problematic alcohol consumption if you experience the following:
- Failure to control alcohol use
- Physical withdrawal symptoms without alcohol
- Strong urges to drink
- Unsuccessful attempts to stop drinking in the past
- Missed obligations due to alcohol use
- Hiding alcohol consumption from family or friends
- Increased tolerance to alcohol
- Injuries caused by alcohol use
Treatment Options for Alcohol Use Disorder
Treatment to address alcohol use disorder is not “one size fits all.” No two conditions are the same; therefore, a custom treatment plan gives each person the best chance for success. There are numerous different approaches available to help individuals successfully recover from alcohol use disorder.
Spring Gardens offers a broad scope of effective methods, which include:
- Detox services

Medically Supervised Alcohol Detox in Florida
With long-term use or overconsumption of alcohol, the brain and body adapt to the presence of alcohol in the system. When an individual stops drinking, they go through withdrawal. At least half of those who suffer from alcohol use disorder experience uncomfortable withdrawal signs after discontinuing use. Symptoms can include nausea, anxiety, tremors, delirium, hallucinations, and seizures.  Withdrawal from alcohol can be dangerous or even fatal without professional support.
A medically supervised detox will ensure that you safely and comfortably rid your system of alcohol. The specialists at Spring Gardens are available 24/7 throughout the detox process to prevent complications. Staff will address any physical discomfort while also being available for emotional support. Withdrawal is often the most critical time in the recovery process as many individuals return to alcohol to avoid these symptoms when attempting a detox alone. Spring Gardens is here to support you through this important step toward your life of recovery.
What to Expect from Alcohol Rehab
It is understandable to experience some jitters when considering alcohol rehab. The first step toward the life you deserve is an initial assessment. A specialist will determine which of our many treatment options is the right fit for you. You may experience massage, music therapy, dual diagnosis treatment, group sessions, or guided meditation throughout your rehab program. Detox or a stabilization program may be recommended based on your individual needs. Whichever methods you undergo, you will stay in a peaceful environment with luxury amenities designed to help you focus on your healing.
