The Way to Sobriety in Utah

April 18, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 166

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration of the Department of Health and Human Services reports that Utah has the lowest alcohol use in the USA. Only 30.9% of the population 12 and over indulged in an alcoholic beverage in the past 30 days. Utahans on the whole are not binge drinkers, only 15.7% of the population did so in the past 30 days. This could be because the outdoor enthusiasts who flock to Utah to take advantage of the "greatest snow on earth" do not want to diminish their performance on the slopes; or it could be as a result of the heavy Mormon population who do not imbibe as part of their religion.

One other contributing factor is likely the temperance laws in Utah. These include that wine at wine tastings cannot be swallowed. Full alcohol service is not available in ordinary establishments, only at private social clubs to due-paying members, or a small number of restaurants who cannot mention they have alcohol, display it, or advertise it. In addition, in Utah it is illegal to advertise drink prices or alcohol brands, to provide a list of alcohol beverages unless a customer specifically requests one, promote a happy hour by showing a "drinking scene", as well as advertise free food in connection with alcohol.

Contrary to popular belief there are no dry counties in Utah. Utah Code Section 32A-1-102 states that local jurisdictions alcohol control legislation cannot conflict with state law, therefore, communities are not able to go dry. However, there are Utahans who develop problems with alcohol even though it is not as readily available as in other states.

Many types of alcohol rehabs in Utah exist that can help you or a loved one with a drinking problem. A person is not necessarily an alcoholic if they abuse alcohol. The distinction between the two is an alcoholic will experience physical symptoms of withdrawal when they do not imbibe alcohol for a period of time; whereas a problem drinker is one who cannot control their consumption when they do drink and/or drink often. Typically, a problem drinker left to their own devices will turn into an alcoholic.

A big sign that someone is on their way to becoming an alcoholic is problem drinking. The best option for lasting results for sobriety is a biophysical or holistic alcohol rehabilitation program. While religion is important, religious rehabs just don't have all the right tools in their programs needed for lasting success.

Alternative holistic treatment will treat the mind, body, and spirit without the addition of religious undertones. Here, a person will get to the root of why they started drinking in excess. They will put aside the crutch of alcohol and learn how to cope without it. Once they have these new coping skills they can re-enter their normal life, sober and ready to make the most of it.
