Most alcohol rehab centers are staffed by addiction counselors that only treat the symptoms of alcohol addiction. Morningside Recovery’s staff is comprised entirely of Master’s-and-doctorate-level therapists that help clients achieve lasting recovery with premier mental health treatment. We don’t just treat the symptoms of alcoholism, we treat the cause.
How Does Alcohol Affect The Body?
Once it enters the body, alcohol is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream from the stomach and small intestine. Alcohol is primarily a central nervous system depressant that also affects every organ in the human body.
What Are The Dangers of Alcohol Addiction?
Alcohol addiction can ruin relationships, end careers, and destroy mental and physical health. No matter how much an alcoholic wants to quit, their desire to satisfy cravings, suppress withdrawal symptoms, and escape their problems is almost always stronger. People continue to drink despite major health risks.

How Does Alcohol Addiction Treatment Work?
Morningside Recovery offers life-changing one-on-one therapy, insightful group sessions, and enlightening holistic therapies. Our unique, non-12 step alcohol rehab treats clients as individuals in an open environment. Clients are encouraged to bring their mobile phone, laptop, and even their dog. Support in a real-life context allows for a smooth transition into long-term sobriety after clients exit our alcohol rehab center.
The staff at Morningside provided a safe and unique environment where healing could take place. I had never felt special or had self-worth and the staff gave me the love, patience, and care I needed until I could find it for myself. My life today is one I dreamed of. I am an active participant! [sic] I am free! I have had a personality change through taking action and working hard that has enabled me to practice and learn faith, love, tolerance, self-worth, and integrity!
