The Late Stage Alcoholic
To speak to a counselor call; 1-877-744-3536
The late stage alcoholic, not always the skid row bum but usually looks like one. He is the one that can not function until the first drink in the morning. Not coffee but straight vodka, whiskey or maybe a few beers. The late stage alcoholic is usually isolated from his friends and family, social contacts have disintegrated, neighbors look the other way and relatives are to paralyzed by anger and grief that they too have given up and stop trying to help. The alcoholic "problem" is ignored and put out of mind where it can not hurt so much.
The late stage alcoholic is not totally alone even though he avoids places where he thinks he may see some one he use to know and stays at home or someplace else where he can be alone. He is still in contact with the local police, emergency room, doctors and social workers. These are the people that will refer him to effective treatment or finally pull the sheet over his head.
The late stage alcoholic needs help fast, but it has to be effective help. With the right intervention and treatment even the late stage, deathly ill alcoholics may recover. The human body has the ability to restore and compensate for damaged tissues. The remaining cells can regenerate themselves, poisons can be flushed out, and the body will slowly start to heal itself. Most alcoholics that are now sober were once considered "hopeless" by the people close to them.

I am a recovering Alcoholic, when I was finally put into long term treatment I was very close to having the sheet pulled over my head. It was the determination of my family that got me into treatment , not me. I do not know of any alcoholic that just woke up one morning and said " This would be a nice day to go to rehab. I think I'll check myself in" .
