Alcohol Recovery in Buffalo, NY
We created a primary acute care program that is comprehensive and personalized for recovering alcoholics to identify their needs and promote their willingness to improve their lifestyle.
The Negative Effects of Alcohol
No one sets out to become an addict. It begins with a single use, and before you know it, the alcohol is in control and taking everything it can from you. Even if you are clean and sober now, you are likely still struggling with some of the negative effects of alcohol. You might have lost quite a bit, but you can get it back by maintaining a commitment to sobriety and following up with primary care medicine.
How Does Alcohol Impact Your Health?
Your health likely paid a price for your addiction. You probably didn’t get regular checkups when you were in the throes of addiction, so you might have high cholesterol, hypertension, uncontrolled diabetes, and other issues. People who abuse alcohol are also at risk for cancer, heart disease, and other serious health problems.
You might be afraid to get a checkup because you don’t want to find out if you have a health condition. Unfortunately, ignoring a condition will not make it go away. The only way to get better is to diagnose and treat the issue. Medical Care of Western New York at Buffalo has a full range of diagnostic tools and specialists who can help you heal your body now that it’s free of substances.
How Does Alcohol Impact Your Relationships?
Experts call alcohol abuse a family disease, and that makes sense. When you drink to excess, your friends and family stand by helplessly, watching you fall further and further into the abyss. They are worried for you and want to help, but eventually, they might turn their backs because they don’t know what to do. It’s simply too painful for them to watch someone they love suffer from alcohol abuse.
You might think those relationships are beyond saving, but that’s not true. Now that you are sober, you can begin the process of repairing fractured relationships, but you need to get your health taken care of so you can enjoy your time with family and friends. Getting your health back in order will also show your loved ones that you are committed to living a long, happy, and healthy life. Talk to them about your journey toward good health to show the commitment you have to become the best person you can be.
How Does Alcohol Impact Your Financial Well-being?
When you abused substances, it was close to impossible to hold down a job. It’s likely that you are still dealing with the financial fallout from that period in your life. In fact, you might not have a job right now. This can make it difficult to take the next step in your journey toward sobriety.
