Alcoholism Recovery in South Africa
If you are an alcoholic living in South Africa, there is hope. No one wants to admit they have a problem with drinking alcohol. But perhaps you’ve been told to cut back on your drinking, or you have another concern there may be a bit of a problem. Therefore, maybe you don’t think that you are an alcoholic, maybe you think you are just drinking a bit too much. The hangovers are getting worse. There is some confusion, maybe shame, guilt or remorse in the morning.
Drinking and Driving in South Africa
Driving under the influence of alcohol is a deadly consequence of alcoholism. Therefore it is not surprising that problem drinkers may wake up and check their driveway for the car. Or look for signs of an accident on their vehicle. According to the 2015 World Health Organization Global Status Report on Road Safety, South Africa has more drunk-driving related deaths than anywhere else in the world. If you haven’t driven under the influence, you probably know someone who has.
Violence and Alcohol Use
Did you ever wake up with unexplained bruises? Or worse, did you ever wake up and not even know where you were – or who the person beside you was? This is the reality of drinking or other drug use that is out of control. It is unsafe! The risk of violence, including sexual violence, is very high when people are drinking alcohol.
Treatment for Alcoholism
There are some excellent alcohol rehabilitation facilities in South Africa, including Cape Town and Plettenberg Bay. However, going away for out of the country for treatment may be the best for you. If you are used to traveling, and you are looking to protect your privacy, consider flying to Panama for alcohol treatment.
