Quitting Drinking On Your Own Is Dangerous, Leading To Intensified Anxiety And Increased Self-Medication
Alcohol is a coping agent, and it is often connected to the anxiety experienced by an individual. Anxiety is an everyday companion for tons of people in our fast-paced, information-driven world of technology, static and noise. Women in particular exhibit higher rates of anxiety according to hospital admissions for panic attack. More than twice as many women are admitted to hospitals for anxiety disorders when compared to the admission rates of men. What is incredible is how many of these patients turn out to be cross-addicted, abusing both alcohol and anxiety drugs in the form of benzodiazepines like Valium and Xanax. At ONE80CENTER, our clinical staff’s goal is to address the underlying co-occurring anxiety disorder of the client while giving them freedom from self-medication and the abuse of alcohol.
Quitting Drinking On Your Own Can Increase Anxiety
If you live in a constant state of anxiety, ONE80CENTER understands how difficult your daily life can be when the panic hits. Did you know that alcohol withdrawal could turn an everyday experience of anxiety into a full-blown panic attack? If you have problem with alcohol and you are worried about your drinking, you should definitely do everything you can to stop. We want you to discover the freedom of recovery, but we want to ensure your health as well. We don’t want an attempt to give up alcohol to lead to greater self-medication, addiction, and even possible overdose. We want you to be safe and your health to be protected.
Being caught between dual problems of alcohol abuse and prescription pill self-medication to deal with an underlying anxiety condition is like being caught in a vise. The more you try to deal with one problem, the worse the other problem gets. It seems like there is no way to find the comfort and piece you experienced in the good old days. Luckily, this dark feeling is not correct, and it is a result of your disease of perception. With help, you can find the peace you desire.
