If you search the Internet for "alcohol treatment in Norwich", you may be slightly overwhelmed by the sheer number of options available to you. Thankfully, you may draw on the resources of Rehab 4 Alcoholism to demystify the treatment minefield that exists.
When you contact Rehab 4 Alcoholism, our advisors will conduct an initial assessment so we may match your needs with an appropriate treatment centre in Norwich. The information we discover during this assessment will be passed onto a psychiatrist who will use this information when subscribing you with a suitable detoxification programme.
The two principal treatment options you may select in Norwich include outpatient or inpatient treatment. Outpatient treatment requires you to attend a counselling or treatment centre that fit in with your lifestyle. For instance, you may choose to attend an outpatient centre after your working hours. Here, you will receive counselling and therapy sessions for around two-to-three hours per week.
If you undertake a detoxification programme on an outpatient basis, an addiction nurse will visit you each day whilst you tackle withdrawal symptoms. You may be given IV thiamine and drugs such as Librium during this time. This is known as a 'community detox' programme.
The primary disadvantage of outpatient and community-based treatments is that you are not removed from your drinking environment whilst treatment is given. This is a risky situation. Why? Because you may relapse during detox when under the influence of medication designed to tackle withdrawal symptoms. Mixing alcohol with benzodiazepines such as Librium could be potentially fatal. This is because Librium may sedate the respiratory system when mixed with alcohol.
To avoid the disadvantages posed by an outpatient treatment programme, you must be willing to attend a treatment programme on an inpatient basis. Why is an inpatient treatment programme superior to outpatient treatment programmes? Because the former means you are removed from your drinking environment whilst the detoxification portion of your rehabilitation is conducted. This means the risk of relapse is reduced to zero.
When your treatment programme concludes, Rehab 4 Alcoholism is also on hand to ensure you receive adequate aftercare treatment. Aftercare helps you navigate your way around life 'in recovery'. Aftercare typically takes place on an outpatient basis. Why is aftercare important? Because it provides care and support during those fragile initial months following the completion of your treatment programme when the risk of relapse is particularly great.
