Chapters Capistrano Addresses Rise in Baby Boomer Alcoholism with Flexible Addiction Recovery

Posted: Updated:
Emerging reports suggest that older Americans are developing greater alcohol dependencies. Chapters Capistrano explains rehab as a welcome atmosphere for these individuals.

Throughout its years of successful service in delivering flexible addiction recovery solutions, the Chapters Capistrano team has come to embrace one fact: addiction does not discriminate. Recently, this comprehensive detox and rehab facility has focused on the increasing gap between men and women seeking treatment for addiction recovery. However, Chapters is also working to raise awareness about the spike in alcoholism rates among older Americans.

While alcoholism is a condition commonly associated with younger citizens and working adults, new evidence has surfaced to suggest that baby boomers are also at a high risk for the addiction. Huffington Post recently released an article that discusses reasons why older citizens are at higher risk of developing alcohol dependency—a risk that stems from mental health.

The article posits, “The particular risks of alcoholism for those over 50 go beyond family, work and financial pressures, as well as beyond self-medicating for aches and pains…There’s often a much deeper issue that triggers the trap of addiction: A sense of lost meaning or purpose in life.”

In addition, Huffington Post suggests that it is much easier for retirees to slip into alcoholic behaviors as their schedules and responsibilities rapidly change—opening up new opportunities to partake in drinking alcohol.

Mike Shea, owner of Chapters Capistrano, responds, “One of the biggest factors the addiction recovery community needs to recognize from these observations is the heavy role mental health plays in encouraging alcoholic behaviors. For instance, many seniors may drink as a way to self-medicate recently-developed depression. In such cases, it is appropriate for individuals to seek professional help not only by addressing the addiction, but also the presence of dual diagnosis, or a mental health problem co-occurring with substance abuse.”

Noting that many older Americans have also reported significant struggles of painkiller addiction, Shea believes it is important for addiction recovery facilities to provide flexible treatment options and environments that are welcoming to individuals from all walks of life.

Shea states, “Senior citizens may have a lot of misperceptions of what addiction recovery is like; they may feel they do not fit within a rehabilitation center, especially since it is a process often related to younger Americans. It is important to raise awareness that addiction recovery programs exist for people of all backgrounds and be comfortable and flexible to the patient’s individual needs.
