Free by the Sea is a recovery and rehabilitation facility for people battling alcoholism in the State of Washington. We help those living with alcohol addiction reclaim their lives and live a life of sobriety. Serving the Pacific Northwest, including Washington (Seattle), Oregon (Portland), and Alaska. Most people can occasionally drink and preserve their jobs, education, and personal relationships. Some individuals, however, feel like they need alcohol to keep themselves going throughout the day. Others may blame their alcoholism on other problems and people because they feel ashamed or guilty about their drinking. These individuals may even hide the behaviors and actions that occurred while under the influence. Behaviors such as these are red flags and signs that the person struggles with alcohol abuse. Drinking alcohol has the potential to impact relationships, personal development, and careers. If you or someone you know experiences the warning signs of alcohol abuse or addiction, we recommend you seek help now. The caring and compassionate staff of Free by the Sea helps men and women regain control of their lives.
What Is Alcohol Rehab?
Alcohol rehab at Free by the Sea is a powerful, evidence-proven method of cutting the ties of alcohol dependence to help individuals begin healthier and happier lives. During rehab, the underlying causes of alcohol addiction are brought to the surface and directly addressed through treatment. Problems with alcohol addiction can be both physical and psychological. Our treatment program aims to overcome those issues in three phases: alcohol detoxification, counseling, and aftercare. The detoxification confronts the physical aspects of the addiction while counseling addresses the psychological components and aftercare assists in correcting the social perspective and maintaining sobriety. PLEASE NOTE: Free by the Sea DOES NOT provide alcohol detox services. We recommend outside detox services and provide the recovery after the detox is complete.
Why Seek Alcohol Rehabilitation?
Since the American Medical Association classified alcoholism as a chronic and progressive disease in the 1960s, treatment approaches have changed significantly. Alcoholism can lead to high blood pressure, gastrointestinal disorders, cirrhosis of the liver, insufficient blood cell production, and cardiac disease when it is not treated. The disease and the issues associated with it do not simply disappear — rehabilitation is necessary. At Free by the Sea, we assist people who are having trouble with alcoholism in a caring, nonjudgmental, and professional manner. The facility provides a place for struggling individuals to heal, recover, and defeat the disease so they can reestablish themselves.
What Is Alcohol Abuse?
Sometimes negative consequences arise in people’s lives because of their consumption of alcohol and behavior while under the influence. Problems most often begin to manifest in the form of family arguments at home. Problems then start to cross into their jobs, which could result in job losses or the inability to find work. Some individuals have difficulty arriving on time or simply showing up as expected. When alcohol interferes with day-to-day responsibilities, a person is abusing alcohol. While the person may not be an alcoholic yet, the progressive nature of the disease means that the person is following a well-laid path toward alcoholism.
What Are the Signs of Alcohol Abuse?
Some of the warning signs of alcohol abuse are the following:
- Alcohol-related legal trouble
- Blackouts or memory loss when drinking alcohol
- Declining school or work performance
