MVP Health Care Rehab and Alcohol Detox Coverage

Recognizing Alcohol Abuse

There's a thin line between drinking alcohol for pleasure and drinking because of undeniable cravings or because you simply can't – or don't want to – stop. If you're concerned your drinking might be out of control, ask yourself if any of the following symptoms of alcohol addiction sound familiar:

  • The need to drink more alcohol more frequently in order to feel the same effects
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms like sickness, sweating, depression, or nausea and vomiting when drinking less than normal
  • An inability to control how much you're drinking and how often you're drinking it
  • Wanting to stop but not being able to
  • A Preoccupation with drinking or obtaining alcohol
  • Drinking despite being aware of the negative effects alcohol is having on work, school, or personal relationships
  • Wanting to stop drinking or cut down on alcohol consumption but being unable to

For people in the throes of alcohol abuse, being able to capitalize on the full extent of their MVP Health Care alcohol rehab coverage can offer the best chance at sobriety and a long, healthy life.

Tackling Alcohol Detox

The longer and more serious alcohol abuse is, the harder it will be for the person to stop drinking. Alcohol is technically a depressant, and once that depressant is flushed from a patient's system, the brain rebounds into a state of extreme excitability. The result is a range of symptoms like irritability, anxiety, mood swings, and even tremors or seizures. In the most intense cases, alcohol abusers going through withdrawal might experience delirium tremens, a form of withdrawal that is potentially life-threatening and requires immediate and emergent medical attention. Experienced medical professionals will monitor and medicate someone going through DTs to help alleviate painful and dangerous symptoms and to ensure the withdrawal process ends in sobriety and a trip to rehab where recovery can continue.
