SOL Recovery Center’s alcohol rehab center in Scottsdale, Arizona coordinates alcohol detox and offers rehab programs to help you overcome alcohol withdrawal and alcoholism.
What are Alcohol Abuse and Alcohol Addiction?
Alcohol abuse is defined as a pattern of drinking alcohol in an amount – and at a frequency – that is harmful to the drinker and/or to the people around the drinker.
Alcohol addiction is defined as a chronic – often relapsing – brain disease that causes obsessive alcohol seeking and consumption, regardless of the consequences. Alcohol addiction is progressive in nature; it usually gets worse over time, not better.

Why Seek Treatment in an Alcohol Rehab in AZ?
Some people who abuse alcohol or who are addicted to alcohol manage to stop drinking on their own for periods of time. However, they often relapse and return to drinking, even after attending an alcohol rehab.
By providing the right combination of alcohol rehab treatment methods, support, and accountability, SOL Recovery Center’s rehab in AZ can help build the foundation clients will need to achieve long-term sobriety.
What are the Principles of an Effective Alcohol Rehab?
Rehab is a critical step in the recovery process, but it’s not the end. There are many components to stopping drinking, avoiding relapse, achieving long-term sobriety, and building a healthy life.
The team at our Arizona alcohol and drug rehab center is guided by the following principles:
- There is no “one size fits all” approach to rehabilitation.
- Attendance for the entire course of treatment is important to long-term success.
- Combinations of therapies must be available (e.g., individual counseling, group counseling, family therapy, and motivational interviewing).
- Aftercare should be considered where appropriate.
- Effective alcohol treatment is not just about alcohol use; a client’s other care needs must be factored into the treatment plan.
- Medication can be an important part of rehabilitation. Many alcoholics also have other disorders that require treatment if long-term sobriety is to be achieved.
- Rehabilitation needs to be available to clients with even a slight interest in getting help. Long-term recovery success does not always start out with complete willingness.
- Effective programs must be able to assess all of a client’s health concerns (e.g., HIV/AIDS, hepatitis B and C, tuberculosis, and other infectious diseases).
What are Effective Approaches to Alcohol Rehab?
At our alcohol rehab in AZ, we employ many methods of treatment. However, anyone committed to long-term sobriety should consider a combination of therapies.
- Someone addicted to alcohol will need help with their withdrawal symptoms. This is called alcohol “detoxification.” Alcohol detox withdrawal symptoms can be deadly. Learn more about detox here.
- Alcohol rehab typically includes therapy sessions that focus on how to get sober, how to prevent relapse, and how to cope with relapse if it should happen.
- Alcohol rehab should also include therapy focusing on the many other issues that plague people suffering from alcoholism (e.g., family issues, work issues, etc.).
- During and after rehab, many patients find community support by attending one of the groups modeled around the 12-step program first developed by Alcoholics Anonymous®. You can find out more here.
