  5. How long to break alcohol addiction?
Asked: 2018-08-30 22:49:03
My family has a bad cycle of alcohol addiction. Both my parents need help, but I wonder how long it will take to cure them.

There are so many factors that go into this. It depends on how long they have been drinking and how much they have been drinking. An alcohol rehabilitation program could help a lot, but even after 30, 60, or 90 days of treatment, they will still need to practice saying no to their demons every day.

I had a similar situation with my parents, but we were able to get them help before their addiction got too severe. A 30-day program was enough to set them on the right path, but they still have to work at it every single day and be careful to choose better ways of coping with life’s problems. Your parents will have to do that too, once they get out of rehab, so you should prepare for months, if not years, of work toward actually breaking the addiction for good.
