Alcohol Addiction Treatment

Speak to an Advisor Now

Currently, millions of people need help for alcohol abuse or alcohol use disorder (AUD). Sadly, many of these people have not yet come to terms with the fact that they have a problem. Alcohol addiction can develop slowly, and when it does, many find it difficult to reach out for help due to fear, embarrassment, or other feelings. Are you unsure if you have a problem with alcohol abuse? In addition, do you need help deciding if treatment is necessary? One way to make your decision easier is to pinpoint what exactly qualifies as a drinking problem. At TruHealing Baltimore in Baltimore, Maryland, we can help individuals stop drinking and heal through appropriate substance abuse treatment.

What Alcohol Abuse Looks Like

Women on couch with notepadAlcohol abuse is much more common than people realize and may not look like what many may expect. For some people, it’s a result of extensive drinking that began as an occasional or recreational pass time. For others, however, alcohol addiction happens due to genetic predisposition, and for others yet, alcohol abuse occurs when drinking is used as a means of escaping reality or coping with past traumas. In all these instances, alcohol abuse can go unnoticed or be excused.


Alcohol impacts people in widely diverse ways, but there are certain indications that a problem has developed. For example, some of the most common signs of an alcohol abuse problem include:


  • The inability to go an entire day without drinking
  • Regularly drinking beyond one’s level of intoxication
  • Feeling guilty, depressed, or ashamed as a result of one’s drinking
  • Failing to meet one’s personal and professional obligations because they interfere with the opportunity to drink
  • Drinking to the point of passing out or blacking out; memory loss that occurs after a period of drinking
  • Drinking to cope with problems or deal with past traumas


Binge drinking is often overlooked, especially when it occurs during social events. But, engaging in regular binge drinking is a serious indication that alcohol treatment is necessary. By definition, binge drinking is drinking that raises one’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) to 0.08 grams percent or higher. This translates to about five drinks within two hours for men and four drinks for women.

Treatment for Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol abuse or alcohol use disorder puts a person at a much higher risk of developing a dependency or addiction. It’s important to analyze your habits to determine if you are abusing alcohol. Do you regularly participate in binge drinking? Has your tolerance to alcohol gradually grown over time? Also, has drinking had an impact on your personal or professional life? It can be difficult to ask and answer these questions honestly, but doing so can be the first step in finding the support you need to heal.


No matter how much you drink or how your alcohol problem starts, professional treatment can help you get sober. You don’t have to live with this problem for the rest of your life. TruHealing Baltimore offers an array of therapeutic options to help individuals overcome their alcohol addiction. For example, we offer individual therapy employing cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and motivational interviewing. Clients can take advantage of group therapy and family therapy as they work through the issues that lead them to drink and abuse alcohol.

Stacy Decker
Director of Operations

I joined the team at TruHealing Hagerstown in 2020. Before starting my current position, I worked as an administrator in outpatient surgical care, and then joined an ambulatory surgery center development company as Regional Director.  I enjoy using my medical background and business knowledge—in conjunction with my personal experiences in recovery—to encourage and support clients seeking treatment.

Abstinence and recovery are an integral part of my life. Being able to help other people who are suffering with a substance use disorder has been a blessing. TruHealing Hagerstown is the only inpatient facility in our community to help people suffering with substance use disorders. It’s incredibly rewarding to give back to my community.

As we continue to grow Amatus Health, the need to stay competitive and differentiate ourselves in unique ways is crucial. Building creative approaches to reach more people will take our company to new heights. This is why I am pleased to announce that we are officially rebranding. Our new national name, TruHealing Addiction & Mental Health Treatment, will eventually replace Amatus Recovery Centers.

You may be asking, “Why are we doing this?” This new name will give us national uniformity and help brand ourselves as a whole, which will be done in phases. You will still see our existing facility names co-branded with TruHealing for the time being.

Healing is what we do. Everyone who comes through our doors is in a moment of profound struggle in their lives. We support them through a life-changing process of healing and recovery, and they leave our facilities changed. This new name is a representation of that process. As mentioned above, it also allows us to have a national brand, which will make us a recognizable name in the addiction and mental health field.

In summation, these changes present an excellent opportunity for our organization to develop our mission, vision, and purpose. I look forward to prosperous growth as we head in a new and positive direction.
