Need Rehab? Arrow Health Offers Alcohol Rehabilitation in Melbourne
It’s not always easy to tell when you have a drinking problem, especially given that regular drinking is considered a normal part of Australian culture. If you’re concerned that you might be drinking too much, that you have to drink more and more to get drunk, or if your friends or family members have said that they are concerned about your drinking, there are some things to consider determining whether you should be getting help.
Signs of Alcohol Abuse
Because binge drinking is not unusual in Australia, it might not be obvious when your drinking has crossed into “excessive” territory. The fact that you’re thinking about whether you have a problem should be a warning sign (and is also a great first step). Other symptoms of alcohol dependence include mental and social issues such as worrying about when you can have your next drink, craving alcohol in the morning, drinking alone, hiding your drinking, and damaged relationships with your friends or family. Other signs of alcoholism are physical and may include needing more alcohol than your used to in order to get drunk, as well as withdrawal symptoms when you don’t drink such as sweating, shaking, nausea, and insomnia.
Questions to Ask
If you’re wondering whether you might need treatment for your alcohol dependence, ask yourself some questions, such as:
- Do you drink to relax or in response to stress?
- Do you often drink alone?
- Have you experienced problems at work or school due to drinking?
- Have you tried to stop drinking and found that you can’t?
- Have you ever had memory loss because of drinking?
- Do you lie about your drinking?
- Do you get drunk even when you don’t mean to?
- Have other people commented on your drinking?
If your answer to questions such as these is “yes,” then it’s important to talk to someone who can help. Seeking a program such as Arrow Health that offers alcohol rehab in Melbourne may just be the best thing you ever do for yourself.
