February is Heart Disease Awareness Month, and we want to raise awareness of the precursors to heart disease–specifically, substance abuse. We review the link between alcohol and heart disease and how you can break free of alcohol addiction.

Alcohol intake is considered substance abuse when it significantly impairs your ability to function in terms of occupation and social interaction. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration reports that nine out of 10 people don’t receive needed treatment for substance abuse. Furthermore, chronic ingestion of harmful substances such as alcohol can deteriorate the health of your blood vessels and heart, leading to cardiovascular disease.

Heart disease is an incapacity to carry out pulmonary function due to dysfunction in the blood vessels and heart tissue. It can result in tissue starvation, brain abnormalities, and increased risk of mortality. Our hope is that we can help you address the complications of alcohol addiction and develop a healthy approach to overcoming substance abuse.

Theta Wellness Center uses advanced technology as part of our drug-free, neurological approach to treatment and rehabilitation. We focus on restoring the brain to its original and healthy production of serotonin and dopamine to enhance self-control, reduce cravings, and improve mood. Our program is clinically proven to be three times faster and 11 times more effective than most rehab centers.
