If you’re battling anxiety, one of the ways you may be trying to cope is through drinking alcohol. That’s a coping mechanism many anxious people choose, especially in social situations. But it’s very unhealthy, and can lead to long-term health problems and addiction issues. You can break the link between anxiety and alcohol in your life.
At Tides Edge Detox, we can help you conquer your alcohol addiction and find ways to get the support you need for your anxiety, as well. With the right treatment and therapy you can detox from alcohol and get your anxiety under control so you can have a happier, healthier future.
Why Are Anxiety and Alcohol Linked?
Anxiety and alcohol tend to go hand in hand, much like depression and alcohol do. That’s because people with anxiety often try to calm their fears and numb their feelings. Alcohol is one of the ways they use to do that. Unfortunately, coping with anxiety in that way often turns into an addiction to alcohol, which can cause physical problems and make you more anxious than before. Breaking that link and stopping the use of alcohol as a mechanism to cope with anxiety is very important. It can be done, and it’s easier when you have the right people on your side. Then you can feel safe to get the treatment and support you need to succeed in recovery.
It may be tempting to self-medicate with alcohol. Many people believe that alcohol helps anxiety when in reality it worsens symptoms. By freeing yourself from alcohol abuse, you can focus on treating anxiety symptoms, not covering them up.
How Can a Treatment Program Help?
By choosing the right treatment program, you can get the quality help you’re looking for. That gives you the opportunity to feel good about your plans and goals for the future, and to have something to work toward. We understand that good treatment matters, and our caring and professional staff is dedicated to working with you on the kind of support you’re looking for.
