These articles about Functioning Alcoholics can help give you the information you need to jump start your recovery from alcoholism. A functional alcoholic can maintain a level of control over their life that often leads them to think that they are functioning just fine, even though they are dependent on alcohol. Treatment for a high functioning alcoholic may include detox, day treatment (partial hospitalization), outpatient treatment, and aftercare. Functioning alcoholics are at increased risk for Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome (AWS). If you’re a functional alcoholic experiencing bad withdrawal symptoms, don’t hesitate to call 911 or go to a rehab or detox center for help.
