The province of Alberta is a wonderful place to live. It doesn’t have a high crime rate like more heavily populated areas, the scenery is breathtaking, and life is peaceful. For all of Alberta’s good traits, it isn’t without its problems. One of Alberta’s more pressing problems is alcoholism.

It is estimated that approximately 80% of Albertan’s who are over the age of 15 have treated themselves to an alcoholic beverage of some type. Many of these people are unable to drink responsibly and become alcoholics. Some might not think that drinking is something the province should worry about, that it is a personal problem. The thing is that alcoholism affects everyone. The more alcoholics there are in the province the more divorces there will be, the unemployment rate climbs because it is tricky for the alcoholic to show up sober every single day, there are more instances of drunk driving rate, and the crime rate climbs. It is in the best interest of Alberta’s residents to take an active interest in the rehabilitation of the local alcoholics.

Information on Drug Rehab

One of the problems with alcoholism is that alcohol is legal. With illegal drugs, it is easy to say a person needs to get help as soon as they get caught taking the drugs. This isn’t possible with alcohol. With drinking, usually has to reach a point where they cannot get through the day without a drink. By the time the alcoholic has reached this point, they have often jeopardized their professional and personal life.

Alberta does not have an adequate number of alcohol rehabilitation facilities where the alcoholic can get the help they need to put alcohol behind them. Getting into the facility can often take time and since most of the programs are short term, the treatment usually isn’t extensive enough to really help the alcoholic develop the arsenal of tools they will need in order to beat their drinking habit.

The problem with the lack of treatment facilities in Alberta, it is important that the alcoholic look at alternative options. One of the best options available to the alcoholic is Alcoholics Anonymous.

Alcoholics Anonymous is a kind of support group who has developed a twelve-step program which has been very successful at helping alcoholics move past their need for alcohol and resume a healthy life.

The twelve steps that Alcoholics Anonymous has developed a combination of common sense and spirituality to help the alcoholic overcome their disease. In addition to the 12 steps, the program also pairs the alcoholic with another recovering alcoholic who has been through the program and can help when the temptation becomes hard to resist.

Alcoholics Anonymous founders understood the importance of having a really strong foundation of support, that it is important they be able to surround themselves with peers who are going through the exact same thing that they are. This foundation of support is provided through weekly (daily in densely populated areas) support meeting where the members gather and discuss their situation. New members are always welcome.
