When a patient enters treatment, their first step is detoxification, which is the purging of drugs and alcohol from a substance abusers body so that rehab can begin. The way alcohol passes from the body, according to the National Council on Alcohol and Drug Dependence (NCADD), is through the bloodstream. The liver breaks down 90% of the alcohol, the kidneys filter 5% of it into urine, and the remaining 5% is exhaled from the lungs.
The myth that you can drink coffee to make yourself sober is also disproven in this study as it takes the liver one hour to break down (metabolize) one drink (one standard drink per hour.)
If you are addicted to alcohol or drugs, consider traveling for treatment to a facility in another city or state. Traveling for treatment gets you away from the people, stress and circumstances that may be leading you to drink or abuse drugs.
Yes. There is evidence that addiction, including alcohol addiction, is passed down genetically from the parents, according to a study by the National Council on Alcohol and Drug Dependence (NCADD). However, there is no certainty that the children will become alcoholics or addicts. Many children who have parents that are addicts are not addicts themselves. The child still has to choose to use that substance.
There are many other factors that lead to addiction, and the converse is true, people can become addicted without any past history of addiction. Addiction is a disease of the brain, and a behavioral issue. Some people are predisposed to it and have a much greater chance of becoming addicted, and some become addicted after repeated use. It depends on the person’s mental health, frequency of use, sensitivity to substances, genetics and other factors.
