Alcoholism, or alcohol use disorder, can be very difficult to detect due to drinking being socially acceptable. It occurs when a person drinks excessively and regularly and can eventually cause issues at work, with family and with friends. While these problems may become apparent to those people, alcoholics will go to great lengths to hide the extent of their drinking which can allow the addiction to go unnoticed for years.

Symptoms that show a patient needs alcohol abuse treatment:

The four stages of alcohol abuse.

Alcohol addiction is a physical and psychological disease that usually has four stages. Each stage has several ways to detect if someone needs alcohol rehab.

Early stage. An increase in frequency or quantity of drinking. This early stage is the most difficult notice. People who drink for stress relief or boredom, have a very high tolerance or blackouts from drunkenness may be in this stage.

Middle stage. Dependency has begun and so have cravings and withdrawal symptoms. These will often cause the patient to become anxious, aggressive or sick.

Late stage. Dependency has completely established itself. Withdrawal symptoms will remain as well as more severe physical and mental health issues. Patience will lack motivation and find it difficult to hold a job and maintain daily routines.


End stage. The addiction has caused damage to vital organs and there is a much higher likelihood of the patient experiencing extreme withdrawal symptoms and life-threatening events like suicide. Alcohol abuse disorder is still treatable at the end stage. It is never too late.

Reaching out for help is the first step to a life-changing recovery.

What is an alcohol detox program?

An alcohol detox program’s purpose is to clear the body of any substances. This process will help the patient safely manage withdrawal symptoms with professionals who can help with both physical and mental symptoms when they stop drinking.


Alcohol detox is different for everyone. While it is possible to do an alcohol detox at home, there is a greater and safer chance of success when it is done with professionals.
