Bhutan - I also heard that alcohol withdrawal symptoms can cause depression, fever, irritability, loss of appetite, and headaches, along with bouts of insomnia.
Most people seeking rehab for alcohol addiction resort to inpatient therapy supported by group therapy by going to an AA meetings.
These meetings are based on twelve principles that make recovery possible. In addition, the Alcoholics Anonymous meetings also help the alcoholic become accountable because the program issues a sponsor that acts like a mentor in order to help the alcoholic through the process.
In addition, they will also learn coping strategies and realize that they are not alone in their addiction.
The accountability aspect of the meetings is what makes them most effective for treating alcohol addiction because the alcoholic begins to understand that the addiction and propensity to drink will always be there so this is a lifelong problem not something that they will ever be cure of.
