Sobriety - Recovery from Alcoholism and Drug Addiction in Philadelphia

Sobriety in PhiladelphiaSobriety Online is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting alcoholics and people with addictions in their recovery.

There are many sites dealing with alcoholism and addiction on the web; however, what sets us apart is that we are committed to providing information and resources for people recovering from alcoholism and addiction (and their families) in Southeast Pennsylvania (SE PA) including Bucks County, Chester County, Delaware County, Montgomery County and the City of Philadelphia.

Sobriety FAQ's: Alcoholism, also known as alcohol dependence, is a disease that includes the following four symptoms:

  • Craving - A strong need, or urge, to drink.
  • Loss of control - Not being able to stop drinking once drinking has begun.
  • Physical dependence - Withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea, sweating, shakiness, and anxiety after stopping drinking.
  • Tolerance - The need to drink greater amounts of alcohol to get high.

Can alcoholism be cured? No, alcoholism cannot be cured at this time. Even if an alcoholic hasn't been drinking for a long time, he or she can still suffer a relapse. Not drinking is the safest course for most people with alcoholism.

Can alcoholism be treated? Yes, alcoholism can be treated. Alcoholism treatment programs use both counseling and medications to help a person stop drinking. Treatment has helped many people stop drinking and rebuild their lives.

Find the right alcohol abuse treatment program or drug abuse treatment program with the Substance Abuse Treatment Facility Locator.


ANTABUSE: A decades-old aversion therapy drug designed to discourage drinking by making users sick if they drink alcohol.
NALTREXONE: A generic medication that can block the brain chemicals that make addicts feel good after drinking or taking drugs like heroin. Approved as an alcohol abuse treatment in 1994.
CAMPRAL: The U.S. trade name for a medication used for nearly two decades in Europe and other countries, where it is known as known as acamprosate. Campral, marketed in the United States by Forest Laboratories Inc., is designed to help recovering alcoholics stay abstinent by easing withdrawal symptoms and reversing drinking-induced brain chemistry imbalances.
VIVITREX: A reformulated, long-acting version of naltrexone administered by injection once a month in a doctor's office to slowly release the drug. Vivitrex's maker, Alkermes Inc., believes many alcoholics will find it easier to stick to the once-a-month regimen than naltrexone users' daily pill-taking routine. The Food and Drug Administration is expected to respond by September 30 to Alkermes' request to market the drug.
