Rum is an alcoholic beverage that is made from the by-products of sugarcane. It's a popular form of alcohol that many people consume as a mixed drink, and rum is the main ingredient in cocktails like mojitos, pina coladas, and dark 'n' stormys. Rum, like other alcohol, can be physically and psychologically addictive. An addiction to alcohol is considered a disease, and becoming sober is extremely hard for most people who abuse rum and other kinds of alcohol. Treatment for an addiction to rum is inpatient rehabilitation where withdrawal can happen safely. Aftercare can continue for the rest of the addict's life.

About Rum Addiction



A rum addiction occurs when a person becomes physically and/or psychologically dependent on rum. A person who is addicted to rum will drink it compulsively, and will continue to drink rum despite evidence of problems related to their drinking. Because alcohol is more socially acceptable than many other addictive substances, an addiction to rum is very hard to recover from, as rum is so widely available. An addiction to rum often results in physical dependence, and withdrawal from rum can be extremely dangerous.

Treatment of Rum Addiction



Because rum is physiologically addictive, it is important that the user goes through a detox as the first step of treatment. An inpatient rehabilitation program will allow for the addict's symptoms to be monitored in a safe environment. An inpatient rehabilitation program of 60 or 90 days is suggested for most people addicted to rum, as alcohol dependence is strong, and 30 days may not be enough. A longer term rehabilitation program is often a better choice, especially if the addict has relapsed before and is back in treatment.

Post Rehabilitation of Rum Addiction



With an addiction to alcohol, aftercare is extremely important. An addict needs to become used to life without rum, which can be difficult because rum is legal and the addict may have to watch others consume it. Staying away from people, places, and things that trigger cravings is useful. Many people also find support groups, like Alcoholics Anonymous, make a big difference in their ability to remain sober. With an addiction to rum, recovery is forever. Some people remain in support groups their entire lives.
