Are you ‘sick and tired’ of feeling sick and tired? Do you acknowledge that you have problems with alcohol that need to be addressed with the assistance of professional help? Do you wish to turn your life around for the better by quitting alcohol for good?
If you said YES to the above, what follows could be the most important message you will ever hear. Each day, Rehab 4 Alcoholism assists hundreds of people in Leicester and across the East Midlands in their quest to give up alcohol. We achieve this by offering the public a free and impartial helpline. To benefit from this free helpline, contact Rehab 4 Alcoholism today on 0800 111 4108.
Before you contact Rehab 4 Alcoholism, it’s probably a good idea to take stock of your thoughts by listing all the reasons you wish to quit drinking alcohol. It’s also important to recognise that a problem exists in the first place. Overcoming denial in this particular circumstance is never easy, but with our help, we are confident that you will succeed.
Once you’ve accepted the idea of seeking out treatment for your addiction, the next step is to decide on the type of treatment that’s most suitable for your needs. The majority of people contacting us will choose to attend a residential rehab clinic in Leicester. Alcohol is a physically addictive substance, and when you stop drinking alcohol, you will begin to suffer from a range of withdrawal symptoms. If untreated, these withdrawal symptoms are potentially life-threatening. When you attend a residential rehab clinic, these risks are eliminated. Why? Because you will be given prescription medications that help you withdraw from alcohol without suffering from withdrawal symptoms. You will also benefit from 24/7 care offered by the rehab clinic’s in-house clinical team.
Following the conclusion of your detox programme, you will feel better and you might feel confident enough to return home. However, this confidence is not particularly helpful to your long-term recovery. Whilst you will feel better, you will still need to undergo a period of rehabilitation. Addiction is not a physical disease, and so addiction cannot be treated by physical means. Instead, addiction is a mental disorder, and a therapeutic approach is needed to help you overcome your addiction once and for all.
During your rehab programme, you will engage in a range of therapy sessions that help to reverse the emotional impact of addiction. You will benefit from therapy techniques such as cognitive behaviour therapy that aim to help you better understand the exact thought process that fuels your addiction. You will then be given the cognitive tools to cope with addiction triggers without giving into to cravings and other common addiction triggers.
Many people coming to rehab for the first time will also require assistance with dual diagnosis issues. These issues typically include depression, anxiety, eating disorders, compulsion disorders and compulsion disorders. A qualified therapist will work closely with you to ensure any potential dual diagnosis issue is identified at the earliest possible opportunity. This will allow the therapists to put a plan in place to ensure your condition receives sufficient treatment before your rehabilitation programme concludes.
