The UKs Most Affordable Alcohol Rehab and Detox Treatment
There are a lot of options out there for alcohol rehab. You know that, and so do we. The person in need of help with an alcohol problem does not need a lot of patronising conversation and a long list of catchwords and phrases that do not really address the issue at hand. What is needed is proven and trusted rehab for alcoholics. If that is what you are hoping to find, you have come to the right place.
Our role as an independent provider of referral services and sound advice means we have but one mission: to help alcoholics and their families find the best alcohol rehab treatment possible. As such, we maintain working relationships with private clinics, charities, counsellors, and other service providers located throughout the UK. We can help you find a rehab clinic and treatment programme that fits your budget and your circumstances.
Are you visiting our website because you suspect you have an alcohol problem? We want to help. You need only contact us using our 24-hour helpline. Our counsellors are standing by to provide you with a comprehensive assessment of your situation. We will answer your questions, listen to your concerns, and provide real solutions by way of treatment options.
Perhaps you do not have an alcohol problem yourself; perhaps you are visiting our website because you are concerned about a family member or friend. We can assist you as well. We are here to provide you with information about the symptoms of alcoholism, how to conduct an intervention, finding counselling for yourself and your family, and accessing other services designed to assist those having to live with an alcoholic. Our 24-hour helpline is available to you as well.
Identifying Alcohol-Related Problems
Alcohol abuse and alcoholism are now treated as medical conditions within the recovery community. As such, there are certain signs and symptoms that clinicians can look for to determine the severity of an alcohol problem. Options for alcohol rehab can then be recommended based on the observance of those signs and symptoms.
If you are an alcoholic yourself, you will exhibit some or all of the following symptoms:
- An uncontrollable desire to drink
- A willingness to do just about anything to drink
- An inability to focus on work or school responsibilities
- Growing discomfort in social situations when alcohol is not present
- Growing discomfort when others confront you about your drinking
- Weight loss or gain proportional to the amount of alcohol you drink
- Experiencing withdrawal symptoms between drinking episodes
- A gradually increasing need to drink more in order to feel the pleasurable effects of alcohol.
Please understand that alcoholism is a progressive medical condition that develops over time. You may only exhibit one or two of the symptoms if you are in the early stages of alcoholism. If you exhibit 3 or more, you are probably already fully overcome by alcoholism.
If you are concerned about someone else rather than yourself, look for the following signs and symptoms:
- Alcoholics tend to withdraw from family and friends
- They resort to hiding alcohol around the home and workplace
- They show increasing disregard for their personal appearance
- Alcoholics gradually show less responsibility at home, work, and school
- They tend to abandon old friends in favour of new friends who also drink heavily
- They tend to have financial problems directly related to drinking
- Alcoholics sometimes develop depression and other mental issues
- Alcoholics are very defensive about their drinking
- They tend to believe they can quit at any time, even though they cannot.
Exhibiting only a few of the symptoms may indicate your friend or loved one is in the late stages of alcohol abuse or the early stages of alcoholism. Exhibiting three or more symptoms is a clear indicator of an alcoholism condition.
The good news in all of this is that alcohol rehab does work for those who embrace it willingly and with a full commitment. Regardless of how serious your alcohol problem is, you can get your life back if you are willing to undergo professional treatment and psychotherapeutic counselling. A complete residential alcohol rehab programme can lead you through the recovery process and into an alcohol-free life that is both productive and meaningful. But you have to be willing to undergo treatment.
Residential Treatment Is Preferred
There is a place for outpatient alcohol rehab by way of the NHS or private counselling services. But for clinically diagnosed alcoholism, residential treatment is preferred over outpatient programmes. There are numerous reasons for this, beginning with the concentrated care alcoholics receive in a residential clinic setting.
Unlike outpatient rehab programmes, a residential rehab offers concentrated treatment that is not interrupted by anything else. It begins with a medically-supervised detox period that lasts between 7 and 10 days. Detox is followed by 3-to-12 weeks of psychotherapeutic treatments offered by way of a bespoke treatment plan developed for the client by facility staff. The focused and concentrated treatment makes alcohol rehab faster and more likely to succeed in preventing future relapse.
Residential treatment is also preferred because it offers:
- a distraction-free environment conducive to recovery
- mutual support and encouragement through group treatment
- individualised treatment plans designed by experienced therapists
- around-the-clock medical supervision during detox
- one-on-one support and counselling when necessary
- assistance in developing life skills to avoid future relapse
- assistance with reintegration into normal life
- ongoing aftercare services
- referrals to support groups and independent counselling.
Whether you are concerned about yourself or a loved one, there is an alcohol rehab programme to suit your budget and individual needs. It is simply a matter of finding it. That is what we are all about. Contact us through this website or our 24-hour helpline and let us get started working on your behalf right away. The road to recovery can start as soon as you are ready to make contact.
We are an independent organisation specialising in helping clients make connections with alcohol rehab providers. Our independence allows us to work with a complete range of service providers, both public and private, located throughout the UK.
Alcohol Rescue offers free assessments to those who are worried about their addictive behaviours. A fully comprehensive assessment will enable people to get a clearer picture of what they are dealing with in terms of alcohol addiction. They can then begin to consider the various treatment options available to them in their area. Our free service is designed to help those who are worried about their drinking habits – it will give them an indication of whether or not they should be thinking about reaching out for professional help to overcome addiction.
One of the biggest barriers to getting treatment for alcohol addiction is not knowing where to get help. Alcohol Rescue offers free advice to those who are concerned about their drinking habits and who do not know where to turn. You can call Alcohol Rescue for free, comprehensive advice and support in terms of the various treatments available and how to access these. The team of professional and caring staff are ready to listen and will do everything in their power to ensure that those who need help have the information they need to access it immediately.
Residential rehabilitation is the preferred option for most people with severe addictions to alcohol. This type of treatment is structured and focused and offers a greater chance of successful recovery. However, at Alcohol Rescue, we understand that this kind of treatment must be suitable for the circumstances of the individual requiring treatment. We will, therefore, take many things into consideration before making any recommendations to any clients. We have our clients’ best interests at heart and want to ensure they always have a number of suitable options to choose from when it comes to overcoming their addictions.
For most people with an addiction to alcohol, a programme of detoxification is necessary to eliminate the toxins from the body. This is a process that, in most instances, requires medical supervision by fully qualified professionals.
Detoxification from alcohol can cause unpleasant withdrawal symptoms, but with the help of medical professionals, this process can be managed to ensure the comfort and safety of the patient for the duration of the process.
Alcohol Rescue would urge all patients with an alcohol addiction to detox in a safe and secure environment with constant supervision.
Alcohol Rescue offers help and advice insofar as staging interventions is concerned. If you have a loved one with an alcohol problem and who refuses to accept help or admit the problem exists, an intervention may be the best option. To ensure the intervention runs smoothly, you might want to hire a professional interventionist; Alcohol Rescue can put you in touch with a suitable facilitator. We understand the importance of getting an addicted loved one to accept that alcohol has become a serious problem, and we believe that an intervention is one of the best and most effective tools in this regard.
For many recovering alcoholics, a programme of aftercare is essential as this will help them reintegrate back into normal, everyday living. Aftercare programmes are provided by professional counsellors and are designed to support recovering alcoholics during the early days of recovery, when the risk of relapse is higher.
Alcohol Rescue can arrange suitable aftercare sessions with a fully trained and certified counsellor located close to patients for their convenience. These weekly sessions will focus on areas that require further attention after a programme of rehabilitation and will keep patients motivated to stay sober.
