A Guide to Being Admitted Into a Treatment Clinic
How do you know when it’s time to seek help from an Abilene alcohol rehab? For many, it takes years to realize that alcohol addiction treatment is necessary, due in part to the fact that so many people drink and have a “functional” relationship with the substance. That is to say, that almost everyone has a drink from time to time which opens the doors to those who have a drinking problem to delude themselves into thinking that they are no different than their peers who can stop after a glass of wine with dinner or a couple of beers at a game.
The fact is that it’s a problem for more people than many believe. In 2006, more than 55,000 Texans went to a drug and alcohol rehab program and 15,000 of them were seeking treatment due to a problem with alcohol abuse and addiction
, according to the Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS).
It may sneak up slowly, but if you see negative changes in your life due to your inability to stop or control your drinking, it’s time to seek treatment.

The TDSHS reported, too, that though the average age of the first use of alcohol was 16 for more participants in rehab, the average age of the person seeking help was 39 – and almost 42 percent were seeking treatment for the first time.
