Can drinkers recover without seeking professional help or going into rehab? Is professional and or medical help always needed? This video addresses this important question and also offers some recommendations.
There is a large body of evidence that shows that many (some would say most) drinkers can recover without the aid of treatment services. While that may be true, we need to strongly advise that for someone who is severely dependent on alcohol should always seek medical help. Withdrawals (sweats, shakes, anxiety) are always unpleasant. However, if the drinker suffers the DT’s (Delirium Tremens – a severe form of withdrawal characterised by hallucinations, confusion) is a dangerous medical condition and can be fatal.
