Emotional and spiritual rehabilitation is the journey into lifelong recovery from alcohol addiction. This journey requires a commitment in both willpower and energy from those seeking recovery. The journey begins with facing up to one's addiction to alcohol. Once you have committed to recovery you are ready to enter rehabilitation. Our partner centres do not entertain admission until you are fully committed to recovery. Once commitment is honoured the detoxification process will begin. If you would like to learn more about alcohol rehabilitation call Rehab 4 Alcoholism us today on 0800 111 4108.
If you search the Internet for ‘alcohol rehab centres’ you may be surprised by the number of options available. Finding the correct programme is no easy feat even for rehab veterans. For this reason Rehab 4 Alcoholism offers unbiased and independent advice to addict’s seeking alcohol rehabilitation. Our partner centres are located throughout the United Kingdom. We place patients into specialist centres qualified to treat their addiction to alcohol.
We do not adhere to a ‘one size fits all’ treatment plan. Treatment plans most effective at treating your addiction are recommended during admissions. The alcohol rehabilitation centre we recommend will address the psychological and physical aspects of addiction. Psychological aspects of addiction are treated in counselling and therapy sessions whilst detoxification treats physical aspects of addiction. Mental or physical ailments are noted before patients begin rehabilitation. Health risks are monitored throughout your stay. We typically recommend residential rehabilitation. Here you are required to live within the centre for the duration of treatment. Prescription medications are offered easing withdrawal symptoms.
Since treatment takes place in residential settings you are removed from old habits which encourage alcohol consumption. 24-hour a day medical supervision is provided. Medical observation is vital during initial detoxification when alcohol withdrawal symptoms arise. Withdrawal symptoms pose life-threatening situations for hardened alcoholics. During detoxification you are prevented from contacting the outside world. This includes friends and family. This makes sure you focus on rehabilitation goals without distraction. Once detoxification concludes family members and friends visit to check on progress.
Before counselling and therapy sessions commence a thorough detoxification programme is completed. All traces of alcohol are removed from your body. This may be the first time your body has done without alcohol for many years. The threat posed by withdrawal symptoms must never be underestimated. The severity of symptoms varies depending on the severity of one's addiction. A number of chemical imbalances are caused by alcohol addiction. When alcohol is withdrawn the brain begins to function in overdrive to restore prior dormant chemical process. This is known as ‘hyperactivity’ and can lead to high blood pressure and respiratory failure. Hallucinations and tremors manifest in the form of a condition known as delirium tremens.
Before detoxification begins you receive a thorough assessment by our medical team. A number of medications are offered to combat withdrawal symptoms. This includes tranquillisers and antidepressants.
Upon completion of detoxification you explore the psychological impetus behind your addiction. You address these issues one-by-one. You are taught coping strategies to neutralise the risk of relapse once you leave the rehab centre. Cognitive behavioural therapy is used to identify ‘addiction triggers’. You gain the ability to manage and avoid these triggers. Addiction triggers typically include exposure to certain situations and people. Our alcohol rehabilitation centres employ traditional psychotherapy and a range of ‘alternative’ therapies such as meditation and art therapy. Psychotherapy takes place either in group or individual sessions. Group work takes place in small groups, normally between 4 to 10 people. Individual therapy is conducted one-to-one with a qualified therapist, psychotherapist, psychologist or counsellor.
Our alcohol rehabilitation centres offer ‘family therapy’. During sessions members of your family attend our alcohol rehabilitation centre. Family members discuss consequences caused by addiction. Family therapy provides a powerful support base for when you leave the centre.
Once your rehabilitation concludes recovery has really just begun. Recovery is a lifelong commitment you must strive to attain each day of your life. You are taught during therapy to withstand any pressures to relapse. You receive personalised after-care aiming to reduce relapse risks. We recognise relapse may occur once you leave our centre. A procedure is put in place should relapse occur. We encourage patients to attend local Alcoholics Anonymous groups on a regular basis.
