How do I Know if I Have an Alcohol Addiction?

One of the clearest signs that our drinking has become a problem is when it starts to impact our daily lives. Perhaps loved ones have started to comment or grown concerned about your drinking.

Fundamentally though it is down to you to identify whether you have an alcohol addiction and whether it is time you take steps to recovery and get back to living a healthier and more normal life.

A tool called the CAGE test may help you to identify whether you have a problem with your alcohol use. You should ask yourself the following questions:

  • Have you considered cutting down on your alcohol intake?
  • Do you ever get annoyed when someone comments on how much you drink?
  • Have you experienced guilt where alcohol is concerned?
  • Has there ever been an instance where you have taken an eye-opener drink – as a way of getting rid of a hangover?

If you answer yes to any of these questions then it could be as likely as 75% that you have an alcohol addiction.

You may need support to tackle your alcohol addiction and we are here to support you through that process.

Alcohol Detox in Aldershot

The definition of detox is to abstain from or rid the body of toxic or unhealthy substances. When we refer to an alcohol detox we are referring to the process by which someone who has previously drunk heavily stops drinking.

The process of an alcohol detox however is not as simple as stopping drinking altogether overnight.

The detox phase is just the first step in our robust programme of support to help you on your journey to recovery. Once the initial detox phase is past and alcohol is no longer in your system the therapy sessions and various treatment services can begin.

It’s important that you don’t attempt to undertake a detox from alcohol on your own. Medical supervision or medication may be required to detox from alcohol safely without incurring dangerous side effects.

If you choose a residential rehab you will receive round-the-clock medical supervision to ensure your detox is going well and most importantly safely.

Very few alcohol rehab centres offer the level of individual detoxification support that we can make available to patients based on their personal needs.

Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms

Alcohol addiction is a huge issue faced by many around the UK. As stated earlier when someone stops using alcohol then withdrawal symptoms typically manifest fairly quickly.

These symptoms can be both physical and mental issues. These symptoms don’t just appear in people who have been using alcohol heavily for years, they can be present to varying degrees no matter how long you have been drinking.

For those who have a serious alcohol dependency, withdrawal symptoms are common and they can become quite serious at their worst.

Alcohol acts as a depressant on the human body. When you abuse alcohol, your body gets used to the presence of the substance. The nervous system adjusts to functioning while under the influence of alcohol.

We offer other treatment options which have time and time again been proven to be extremely successful in helping to treat alcohol addiction and help people to avoid relapsing back to alcohol abuse.

Cognitive behavioural therapy is an effective treatment option for those struggling with addictive behaviours.

The NHS explains [2] “CBT is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle.”

Our team can help you decide and can advise you on whether CBT is the right treatment option for you. This type of therapy is used to treat a whole host of mental health issues.

Equine therapy is another treatment option. This holistic therapy helps to treat the mind, body and soul instead of focusing purely on the addiction.

Equine therapy specifically uses horses. You will work with a professional to look after the horses as part of your therapy sessions.

We also offer some referred to as interventions.

During alcohol intervention counselling, a type of therapy designed to treat addiction, you’ll be working closely with a counsellor to stop drinking safely, and amigo cravings and understand the root cause and triggers for your addiction.

These sessions can last between 8-12 weeks and allow you to look into past experiences, help you to manage stress and deal with difficult emotions.

The sessions may also involve role-playing scenarios to help you create coping techniques to manage your triggers successfully.

The hope is that alcohol intervention counselling can help you to overcome your addiction and go on to lead a healthy, happy life free of any substance abuse issues.

Self-help groups and family therapy sessions are other treatment options to help you overcome your addiction.

Intensive outpatient therapy can also be used where appropriate to help you overcome your addiction. This therapy allows the person to stay at home and attend treatment programmes each day for a pre-determined amount of time.

Speak to one of our trained experts to discuss which treatment options may benefit you the most.
