Someone who is struggling with alcoholism may be experiencing all varying manner of signs and symptoms which can alert you to their problem.
However, these signs and symptoms can be hard to identify due to the fact that many alcoholics will attempt to hide their addiction. This is particularly true of someone who is a functioning alcoholic.
Living with, or being close to, a functioning alcoholic can be incredibly stressful. Not only can it be hard to live with the destructive behaviours of a functioning alcoholic, but it can also be very difficult to watch someone who you are close to seemingly retract into themselves and push those close to them away.
Many people can worry about how to talk to a functioning alcoholic and how to help a functioning alcoholic in denial; however, below you should hopefully find appropriate information to assist you in approaching and helping a functioning alcoholic. Cassiobury Court’s alcohol rehab will also be able to provide you, or your loved one, with the alcohol addiction treatment that you need to overcome your addiction.
As mentioned previously, alcohol addiction can be incredibly difficult to identify in a person if they are a functioning alcoholic. Someone who is a functioning alcoholic may be able to uphold a perfectly good social life and hold down a decent job.
However, by keeping a watchful eye on someone who you are concerned about then you will be able to identify the key warning signs that someone is a functioning alcoholic — one who may be in dire need of professional treatment before their addiction spirals out of their control.
Some warning signs to be aware of include:
If you think that you have identified that someone you are close to may be suffering from alcoholism, then you should be very careful about how you approach them about this issue.
A lot of people suffering from alcoholism will not respond well to being approached about the seriousness of their addictive disorder, hence why the utmost caution should be taken in talking with a functioning alcoholic.
Cassiobury Court may be able to help you by providing you with guidance through a family and friend referral scheme which you can take advantage of by calling our helpline. However, you will also find below some techniques which should be employed when approaching an alcoholic:
Cassiobury Court may be able to find a place in our alcohol rehab for anyone who needs our help. Our residential drug and alcohol addiction rehab will be able to get you through alcohol detox & withdrawal thanks to our detox clinic.
Following withdrawal, you will be able to experience physical and psychological treatments which will help you to address the underlying issue which causes you to develop an addiction in the first place. You will learn about the facts about alcohol and the facts about giving up alcohol.
If you, or someone you know, are ready to take advantage of effective alcohol addiction treatment then reach out to Cassiobury Court today.
