Alcohol Rehab in Portland, ME

Located in Portland, Maine, Liberty Bay Recovery aids in the recovery and rehabilitation of alcoholics so they can reclaim their lives and reestablish themselves in the community.

A large segment of the population consumes alcoholic beverages periodically and goes about their business as usual, but some individuals feel they need alcohol to sustain themselves throughout the day. That’s a red flag and a sign of a problem. Some people might blame their drinking on their problems, particularly with other people. They might feel guilty or ashamed because of their drinking patterns, use other people to hide their drinking, or even forget what they did while under the influence of alcohol. Those are other red flag warnings of a drinking problem. Alcohol consumption can impact family, friends, jobs, and school. Should you or somebody close to you experience the warning signs of an alcohol problem, rehab should be strongly considered before any further damage is done. At Liberty Bay Recovery, our staff is caring and compassionate. Our sole focus is on helping alcoholics reclaim control of their lives.

What Is Alcohol Rehab?

Alcohol rehab is a powerful and evidence-proven method of breaking the chains of alcohol dependence and beginning a healthier and happier life. When in rehab, the underlying issues that cause alcohol addiction are uncovered. Those issues are addressed directly through treatment. Alcohol addiction issues can be both psychological and physical. Our rehab treatment program focuses on overcoming those issues in three separate phases consisting of alcohol detoxification, counseling to address the issues underlying the addiction, and aftercare to assist in maintaining social perspective and sobriety. Each treatment phase is designed to confront the physical, psychological, and social components of alcohol addiction.

Why Seek Alcohol Rehabilitation?

Alcoholism has been treated as a chronic, and often progressive, disease since the American Medical Association first classified it as such in the 1960s. When ignored and left untreated, alcoholism can lead to cirrhosis of the liver, high blood pressure, cardiac disease, gastrointestinal disorders, and insufficient blood cell production. Alcoholism and its associated problems won’t just go away. Rehabilitative treatment is necessary. Liberty Bay Recovery assists people struggling with the disease of alcoholism. Detox, rehab, and aftercare proceed in a professional, caring, and non-judgmental manner. Liberty Bay is a place to heal, recover, reestablish oneself, and defeat the disease once and for all.

What Is Alcohol Abuse?

Alcohol abuse occurs when negative consequences of alcohol consumption arise in a drinker’s life as a result of their behavior when under the influence. More often than not, these problems begin to manifest themselves at home in the form of arguments with family. They then cross over to their job, possibly resulting in the loss of that job or the inability to even find a job. Punctuality or even just showing up where one is supposed to be can become an issue. Alcohol abuse isn’t necessarily alcoholism, but it’s a stage in the progressive disease of alcoholism.

What Are the Signs of Alcohol Abuse?

Typical warning signs include the following:

  • Drinking in order to relax, feel better, or relieve stress
  • Alcohol-related legal trouble
  • Decline in work or school performance
  • Missing important dates and deadlines
  • Neglecting responsibilities at home, work, or school
  • Becoming isolated from friends and family
  • Troubled relationships with other people
  • Engaging in high-risk behaviors, such as sexual promiscuity or drunk driving
  • Lying about alcohol use
  • Memory loss or blackouts when drinking alcohol
