Alcohol Addiction Statistics
Many people may not know about the alarming numbers of individuals suffering from alcohol addiction or abuse in America today. In fact, approximately 4% of the U.S. population suffers from alcoholism, which translates to 12 million people.
Another 4% are alcohol abusers who are likely unaware of the dangers and risks they pose both to themselves and others if the condition is left unchecked. In each category, there exists alarming health and behavioral consequences.
What’s more, only 10% of alcoholics seek treatment while the remaining 90% often die prematurely.
There are many reasons for the small numbers of treated individuals, not the least of which is the specific fear of painful or fatal alcohol detox, along with the uncertainty of an alcohol detox program in general.
Addressing these fears while incorporating a wide array of non 12-step treatment modalities is what sets Inspire Malibu’s alcohol addiction program apart from others.
We are proud to offer a safe environment for alcohol detox combined with over 27 different methods for addiction treatment that is customized and updated regularly as conditions warrant.

Alcohol Addiction Treatment
Detox patients are looked after thoroughly, with regular readings of vital signs and administering of intravenous fluids if necessary. Multivitamins are often used to compensate for the nutrient deficiencies brought out by alcohol withdrawal.
Those suffering from alcohol withdrawal are also at risk of dehydration, so the caretaker must make sure that the patient is getting their necessary fluids.
Safe and Comfortable Alcohol Detox
Battling the effects of alcohol detox is the scariest part of getting sober. The effort never ends, but it all gets easier from there. At Inspire Malibu, we take pride in providing the safest and most comfortable alcohol detox program in the area.
Our evidence-based alcohol detox treatment programs are closely monitored by addiction specialists who are available during detox whenever necessary.
What are the Physiological Effects of Alcohol Detox and Withdrawal?
Many physiological changes occur when a person stops drinking after a long period of alcohol consumption. Alcohol withdrawal symptoms follow an evidence-based, predictable pattern as follows:
The patient stops using alcohol after prolonged heavy use
4 to 8 hours after their last drink, the patient experiences shakes, sweats, chills and their heart rate and blood pressure are increased, causing severe anxiety
- 12 to 48 hours of the last drink, patients may experience a mild seizure (usually multiple mild seizures over a short period of time)
- 12 to 48 hours after their last drink, the patient may experience a mild seizure (usually multiple seizures over a short period of time)
- 3 to 5 days after their last drink, the patient may experience Delirium Tremens (DTs), which are a particularly nasty (and sometimes fatal) condition characterized by hallucinations, disorientation, tachycardia, hypertension, hyperthermia, and agitation
About 5% of DT cases are fatal. That figure is a lot better than what it used to be, as back in the 20th century. Before there was widespread knowledge about the serious health risks of alcohol abuse. It’s estimated that over 30% of DT cases were fatal.
Many people want to tough it out and do their detox at home because they’re concerned about treatment costs and/or they’re simply embarrassed. But without professional management, brain cell death can be irreversible, so a professionally supervised alcohol detoxification treatment center is highly recommended.
During withdrawals, the patient may experience distinct auditory and/or visual hallucinations. Unlike the hallucinations that occasionally occur during Delirium Tremens, which are reported as being clouded and disorienting, these hallucinations are fairly clear and vivid.

It’s an extremely difficult thing for anyone to come to grips with the fact that they might have a problem with alcohol addiction. The stigma alone keeps many people from seeking help, but without treatment, the problem won’t go away on its own and will only get worse over time. If it hasn’t happened already, it will take control of your life.
We understand the reluctance our clients have regarding alcohol treatment, so one of our first priorities is to provide a safe and caring environment where the healing can begin without judgment.
We view recovery as a team effort between our staff and clients, and the goal is to find the root cause of the problem and resolve any underlying issues that may get in the way of alcohol sobriety.
About Inspire Malibu
At Inspire Malibu, we ensure the success of each client because our rehab treatment program, when followed diligently, is extraordinarily effective. This effectiveness is a result of the vision of our treatment team, which has helped to create a program that combines traditional approaches with modern, all-therapy based approaches to create a program that is very different from most other rehab treatment programs.
Our staff is board certified in both addiction medicine and psychiatry.
At Inspire Malibu, a low patient to staff ratio and a high number of doctors on staff assures that patients interact with experts every day of their rehab treatment program.
Just as important as having a properly credentialed staff, our patients also benefit from the fact that we have staff on site 24 hours a day. This is particularly critical during the first few weeks of recovery when early cravings and withdrawal symptoms can cause extensive physical and mental suffering.
Our staff is available to assist with medication or provide counseling as necessary to assure that patients are no danger to themselves or others, and don’t suffer severe complications during this trying period of the rehab treatment program.
