Alcohol Addiction Treatment

If you or a loved one currently suffer from an alcohol addiction Rehab 4 Alcoholism can help. At Rehab 4 Alcoholism we provide access to rehabilitation centres throughout the United Kingdom. Our centres specialise in treating alcohol addiction, from initial detoxification to after-care and extended care. Centres are typically residential in nature meaning you receive 24-hour a day supervision from a team of medical experts specialising in addiction treatment.

Our alcohol addiction treatment is based on the principles of abstinence. We provide patients with the psychological strength required to beat addiction. This is achieved through initial detoxification followed by therapy sessions. Alcohol addiction treatment is followed by extended after-care treatment.

Types of treatment

Types of treatment we recommend include:

The dangers of alcohol withdrawal

During alcohol detoxification, potentially life-threatening withdrawal symptoms occur. Attempting rehabilitation at home is a potentially dangerous prospect indeed. Withdrawal symptoms mean most addicts fail in attempting recovery. Worse still, withdrawal can result in death if not properly managed.

Initial detoxification

Alcohol addiction treatment begins with initial detoxification. During detoxification patients lose access to alcohol nor do they have access to ‘addiction triggers’ that they may normally encounter. Residential rehabilitation for alcohol addiction means detoxification is given the best possible start. Treatment centres maintain a licenced pharmacy with qualified staff able to prescribe medications to ease dangerous withdrawal symptoms.

Therapy sessions

Following alcohol detoxification your treatment shifts to therapy and counselling sessions. The aim of therapy is to address addiction’s psychological causes. A number of traditional and alternative therapies are employed.

Stress and strain are often key ‘triggers of addiction’. Thus a number of coping strategies are taught so addicts are able to defuse negative emotions without resorting to alcohol consumption. Following detoxification, patients are permitted access to guests such as friends and family members.

Therapy and counselling sessions are conducted within groups or alternatively one-to-one with a therapist. We believe recovery must be rational, emotional and spiritual. Our therapy is both holistic and human centred giving patients the best possible chance of remaining in recovery for the rest of their life.

Our rehabilitation centres throughout the United Kingdom specialise in treating alcohol addiction. Many centres prescribe different philosophies of treatment. Patients’ addiction facts are gathered during the initial assessment. Such facts are considered when recommending an appropriate centre and course of treatment. Our advice is entirely independent and unbiased towards any particular centre. This means you receive tailored and specialised help that’s right for your needs.

Once alcohol addiction treatment draws to a conclusion an extended after-care plan is drawn up. Aftercare promotes relapse prevention. A process is put in place should relapse occur after leaving the treatment centre. Aftercare includes a 24-hour a day helpline patients can call if relapse occurs. Patients are educated on signs to look out for when relapse is likely to occur.

Our alcohol addiction treatment means patients enjoy some of the lowest relapse rates available. We believe this is due to our insistence on referring patients to appropriately placed rehabilitation centres from the outset. Once patients leave the treatment centre we encourage them to engage local Alcoholics Anonymous groups.
