If you develop craving after your first drink and cannot stop you may be addicted to alcohol. Also, if you try to abstain from drinking (not drink at all) but cannot, you may be an alcoholic.
The important thing to remember is there is nothing to be ashamed of. Environmental factors like stress and cultural or family dynamics can lead to alcoholism. It is also believed that genetics can be a factor. If your parents or siblings have a drinking problem, you are 3 to 4 times more likely to develop alcoholism as well.
No one wakes up and decides to become an alcoholic. But you can wake up and decide to do something about your alcoholism. Admitting that you have a drinking problem and seeking alcohol rehab treatment is a sign of strength. Call us now, we can show you how to achieve sobriety. At Ventura Recovery Center, most of our staff has experienced addiction and found a solution. We asked for help, founds lasting sobriety, and want to help you find it too.
Alcoholism is a complex, chronic disease. That means alcohol treatment needs to address both the physical and psychological causes and effects. Professional treatment is often necessary to counteract the effects of long term alcohol abuse.
Alcohol detox is the first crucial step towards controlling alcoholism. Alcohol detoxification needs to be medically supervised because the symptoms of withdrawal can be life-threatening.
At Ventura Recovery Center we offer the best comprehensive alcohol detox program suited to your individual needs. Our detoxification program is JCAHO accredited and conforms to the highest medical standards. As toxins leave the body, our medical staff treats our clients for anxiety and sleeplessness. Withdrawal symptoms are diminished and you are allowed to rest in a quiet residential setting. Our clinical staff provides therapy and emotional support. While detoxification can sound like a scary option, we make sure it is as comfortable as possible as you begin your new way of life.
The good news is that no matter how severe the problem may seem, most people with an alcohol use disorder can benefit from some form of treatment.
Successful alcohol treatment continues after the detox phase. Our counseling staff focuses on giving you the emotional tools you need to GET YOUR LIFE BACK. You learn to make positive choices that foster personal growth and responsibility. Ventura Recovery Center is the best alcohol treatment center in the Los Angeles area. Our highly trained, caring staff provides you with more than just the basics. We prepare you to face the challenges that come with normal living with dignity and strength…sober. We teach you how to heal your family and personal relationships and give you coping tools you can use in any situation.
Many people struggle with staying sober after a 28 day stay at an alcohol rehabilitation center. That’s why we suggest stays of 90 days or more. At Ventura Recovery Center we are proud of the fact that a significant number of our clients remain sober after 90 or more days of treatment. Unlike many addiction treatment facilities, we offer our clients the chance to stay longer periods of time like 90 days, 120 days, even longer. Long term treatment is proven to work. That’s why many of our clients choose long term options. After treatment, they go on to live life without the chaos that drugs and alcohol caused them or their loved ones.
After treatment, we don’t just say goodbye. We have a very active alumni community. The Conejo Valley has a particularly strong recovery community. Often, our clients decide to stay in the Thousand Oaks area after treatment. We have monthly alumni meetings where our clients can come together and share each others’ strength and hope in recovery. We are a family. When you come to stay with us, we consider you a part of our family too.
Addiction is a horrible disease. Watching your close friend struggle, and not being able to help them is hard… But what’s even harder is getting them into a treatment program that will turn their lives around for the better. This is exactly what Ventura Recovery Center did for us. Their intake process was quick and they gave me a call back right away to let me know they can admit her the same day. Thank you Robert for your help and phone support. Truly a wonderful place that helps people get their loved ones back.

A person is introduced to alcohol (in some cultures this can happen at a relatively young age), and the person enjoys the happy feeling it produces. At this stage there is no emotional cost.
A person will drink to regain that feeling of euphoria experienced in phase 1; the drinking will increase as more intoxication is required to achieve the same effect. Again at this stage, there are no significant consequences.
There are physical and social consequences, i.e., hangovers, family problems, work problems, etc. A person will continue to drink excessively, disregarding the problems.
Highly detrimental stage with a risk for premature death. As a person now drinks to feel normal, they block out the feelings of overwhelming guilt, remorse, anxiety, and shame they experience when sober.
