Alcohol Addiction Recovery Resources

Millions of Americans suffer from the effects of alcohol addiction and abuse, whether directly as an alcoholic or indirectly through a friend or family member. For years, substance addiction was not diagnosed or treated as the illness it is. As the attitude toward the disease shifted, treatment programs and their results improved greatly and many drug and alcohol resources became available. This is critically important, because alcohol addiction facts show us many of our nation’s issues stem from alcohol abuse, including:

  • 17,000 alcohol-related traffic fatalities annually (per The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration)
  • Half of U.S. homicides involve alcohol
  • 40% of assaults involve alcohol
  • Roughly 75% of all prisoners were involved in alcohol or drug abuse prior to their recent offense

The good news is that with effective treatment delivered by dedicated staff in an understanding and safe environment, alcoholics may make a full recovery and enjoy a healthy life free from the grasp of addiction.

At Summit Malibu, we do an extensive evaluation of each client’s mental and physical health when they enter treatment. Armed with this information, we create a treatment program that is personalized for each client’s needs.
