If you have an alcohol or substance misuse problem you’re not alone. There’s recently been a 21% increase in alcohol-related admissions to hospitals in the county.[1] Berwick-Upon-Tweed is also one of the most dangerous places in the area for drugs.[2]

Alcohol Addiction; what is it?

It’s important to think about what alcohol dependency is and why getting medical and professional input for alcohol use is imperative.

Alcohol is a substance that causes the brain to change its chemical balance. It causes the release of GABA amino acid.

This is one of the reasons alcohol makes people feel relaxed. However, it’s also the chemical that, if you drink regularly, makes your brain start to malfunction if you stop drinking. For example, you can go into a seizure.

When a person has developed a dependency, it’s dangerous to come off alcohol without specialist support. A stay at a rehab clinic offers the best means of weaning you off the substance.

How Does Alcohol Rehab in Berwick-Upon Tweed Work?

If you have an alcohol abuse problem, you need both physical and psychological treatments. A medical detox addresses dependency while therapies are essential in tackling the psychological causes of addiction.

Alcohol Detox in Detail

At an alcohol rehab clinic, you’ll soon enter alcohol withdrawal. This is where you can experience various symptoms including:

  • Tremors
  • Sweating
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea, sickness, and diarrhoea
  • Hallucinations
  • Seizures

The beneficial thing about detoxing at an alcohol rehab in Berwick-Upon-Tweed is that a doctor is present. They’ll prescribe you Librium, a medication that eases the above symptoms so you’re comfortable and safe. It lasts around ten days until you’re sober.

After this, of course, you move into therapeutic and group counselling sessions to focus on deep mental and emotional healing.

NHS Rehab Services

The NHS provides an Outpatient service. There’s a hub in Berwick-Upon-Tweed that’s available to anyone in active addiction. They offer alcohol treatment services but it has to be pointed out that the approach isn’t as “intense” as a private clinic. This is largely because you remain living at home and just go to the clinic for groups and the odd appointment.

It’s a clinic where people receive harm reduction advice because they’re still using it as well as support around quitting.

Private Rehab in Berwick-Upon Tweed

Entering a private alcohol rehab in Berwick-Upon-Tweed is a little different. The goal of this approach is to support people who are at the point of their recovery journey where they are ready to quit.

Residents enter rehab and stay for around a month to wean off drugs and alcohol and to develop the relevant skills to live an abstinent life going forward.

Addiction Treatment Options at Rehab in Berwick-Upon-Tweed

You’re probably interested to know what treatments are offered at a private clinic. It’s important to keep in mind that addiction is a very complex condition and many factors cause it as well as various influences, treatments, and choices that will help you to manage it successfully.

As mentioned, for people who have physical dependencies, detoxes are available. Whoever has an addiction, however, has a psychological illness so this needs addressing.

There are treatments for personal, social, and mental health issues.

The therapies for Alcohol and Drug Addiction include:

  • Cognitive behavioural therapy is where you’ll learn how thoughts influence your behaviours. How these become repetitive and how to break patterns to develop new and healthy behaviours.
  • Counselling is a confidential space which offers people help to understand their problems and how to find a space for resolution.
  • Dialectical behavioural therapy is where people learn to emotionally regulate. This is especially important in the addiction field where people are known to use substances to blot out emotions. Learning to manage emotions also helps to manage triggers more effectively.
  • Motivational interviewing is where you’ll talk about what you like about the substance you’re addicted to in more depth. It’s also the space where you’ll discover your reasons for quitting.
  • 12 Step groups are where you’ll find a connection to others. You’ll share experiences, find common ground and positively challenge each other.
  • SMART recovery groups offer you a space of practical support. You’ll think about what your goals are and how to manage the addiction at a basic level each day by keeping busy and remembering to practise coping mechanisms.
  • Holistic therapies include yoga, meditation, mindfulness, reiki, equine therapy, and art and music therapy.

All the therapeutic services on offer have been shown to effectively support people to heal from addiction. People are individuals so it’s important to get fully involved with all aspects to discover what best works for you. Many people leave rehab with new hobbies!

What Happens if You have a Dual Diagnosis?

Some people go to rehab and discover that they have a mental health condition. Others might already know that they have one. This is quite normal. Many people in rehabilitation have issues with mental health. It’s very much linked to addiction.

This is because people often turn to substances when they’re experiencing symptoms related to anxiety, depression, and psychosis. Alongside this, of course, is the fact that psychoactive substances can lead to the development of mental health problems.

The staff at a rehab centre understand that for you to get the best start in your recovery journey, both aspects of your health need to be addressed. Your programme will include therapies that cover both.

How Long do You stay Rehab?

It’s important to think about the length of your stay at an alcohol rehab in Berwick-Upon-Tweed. You might have heard that some people receive drug or alcohol treatment that lasts around seven to ten days.

This will, most likely, have been because they were being treated for a physical dependency. It takes this amount of time to detox on a tapered-off style prescription.

In reality, people need to stay a rehab longer than this time. This allows you to learn from therapies, develop new coping mechanisms, and plan a sober life. It’s also useful to know that 28 days, which is the recommended time for many, is the amount of time it takes to develop a new habit.

If you love someone who has an addiction, it can be extremely worrying.

Family Interventions at Home


If you have a loved one who has an addiction at home, it can be hard to know how to manage your side of the relationship.

It’s really important to learn how to establish and maintain boundaries as well as know how to keep the household safe.

The CRAFT intervention is great if your loved one isn’t open to rehab yet. It focuses on developing healthy communication and encouraging them to move towards being ready and willing to quit in a person-centred way. This approach also makes your self-care a priority.

Another intervention is where you’re assisted by addiction or mental health professionals to move your loved one to rehab as soon as possible because things have hit a crisis point.

You can speak with Rehab 4 Alcoholism for more information about this.
