Marked by the obsessive and unmanageable use of alcohol, regardless of its negative impact on a drinker’s fitness, profession, and relationships, alcohol addiction can be especially dangerous in those dealing with sexual addiction issues.

Alcoholics often continue their addiction to maintain a state of false normality and to avoid the effects of withdrawal and pain in their lives. Long-term alcohol addiction can destroy emotions, relationships, and lives.

These complex issues need comprehensive treatment. Our sexual addiction treatment program at Gentle Path can provide inpatient psychiatric care and alcohol detox in the acute care section of our unit, which has 24-hour monitoring by registered nurses and nursing staff experienced in psychiatric and detox issues.
Gentle Path is a safe, nurturing community composed of peers where your journey of recovery will include not just dealing with outward behaviors but examining the underlying causes. The goal is to gain the courage to face difficult issues (including grief and loss), heal from emotional trauma, and become accountable for your feelings, behaviors, and recovery.
Taking that first step is hard, but there’s a new life of health and hope just waiting for you. The next chapter of your life can begin now, but only you can change your story.
