Alcohol Addiction Health Center

Many people recover from alcoholism and live full, healthy lives. Most treatment plans are ongoing and involve extended counseling. Addictions can be difficult to break, so many doctors tell their alcohol-dependent patients to develop new habits that don't involve alcohol or trigger a craving for it.

Also key to life after alcoholism is support from friends and family. Tell your family if you've made the decision to quit drinking and ask for their support.
