Alcohol Rehabilitation Centers - Diverse Approaches to Recovery

Alcohol rehabilitation centers approach recovery in different ways. The specific alcohol rehab/treatment programs vary, along with staff qualifications, costs and credentials. Whether they offer inpatient or outpatient programs with short or long-term options, one essential aspect of any alcohol rehabilitation center is proper medical supervision during the alcohol detoxification process.

The following graphs are the result of a search frequency study on internet queries concerning “alcohol rehabilitation centers”. For a one-year period, phrases related to alcohol rehabilitation centers were tracked, analyzed and graphed. The total search numbers are significant and reflective of the common societal problem of alcohol abuse.

Alcohol Rehab Program Requirements - Alcoholism #1 Addictions Issue

Alcoholism remains the most prevalent substance abuse issue in both Canada and the United States. A 2003 survey estimates that over 600,000 Canadians and 15 million Americans were addicted to alcohol. Subsequently, the need for alcohol rehab programs is paramount.

Graph 1 shows that “alcohol rehab” was searched over 131,000 times over a one-year span. Although this number may seem high, it's almost 3½ times less than the number of searches for “drug rehab” which garnered over 450,000 searches. One possible explanation for this discrepancy may be that drug addiction can take many forms and search numbers are reflective of this diversity.
