Are you unable to stop drinking alcohol? Do you promise yourself you will never drink again, yet you continue to drink once the day starts to kick in? Do you feel an immense feeling of regret and guilt when you drink?
If so, you could be suffering from alcoholism. Alcoholism is a common illness in the United Kingdom affecting well over a million people. Fortunately, help is at hand. All you must do to gain access to advice is contact Rehab 4 Addiction today on 0800 140 4690.
We've successfully assisted thousands of people for alcoholism in Worcestershire and we are confident we can help you too. Why? Because we maintain a vast network of treatment providers both within Worcestershire and further afield. This means we are able to match you up with a treatment provider in the local area that's best suited to tackling your unique problems that fuel your alcoholism.
Have you attempted to 'free yourself' from alcohol before and failed? The sad truth is that only a small fraction of people suffering from alcoholism will be able to break free from their addiction unaided.
For the vast majority of people suffering from alcoholism, professional intervention will be required. Why? Because alcohol affects neurotransmitters in the brain known as GABA-A. When alcohol is withdrawn, GABA-A activity decreases, causing a range of powerful withdrawal symptoms.
Rather than experience these symptoms, most addicts will simply continue to drink alcohol to 'self-medicate.' Another reason-why alcoholism is difficult to treat without professional help is due to underlying trauma that fuels the addiction. If this trauma is not treated, the circumstances that fuel alcoholism remain. This means even if you do manage to rid yourself of alcoholism, the chances of relapse within the next 2-4 months are great.
How can you break free from alcoholism once and for all? The answer to this question is complicated, and requires a brief explanation. Your treatment options are three-fold.
First, you may choose to detox from home. Home-based detoxes are inexpensive, but the chances of relapse are greatest. We thus do not recommend a home-based detox for this reason. Your second option is to undertake a detox from home whilst attending therapy sessions on an 'outpatient basis'.' This option is equally fraught with the risk of relapse.
The third and final option is to undertake treatment from the safety of a residential treatment centre. This is by far the superior option, since you are removed from your 'drinking environment' whilst you receive your treatment.
How long does residential treatment last for? The duration of your stay at a residential treatment centre in Worcestershire depends on the severity of your addiction and the severity of mental health issues you face. The more severe these issues, the longer you must remain in a residential clinic. Generally, residential treatment requires between 7 to 28 days to complete. Residential treatment also provides for weekly outpatient sessions once you return home. These outpatient sessions are available for around 12 months following the conclusion of residential treatment.
The field of professional alcohol addiction is littered with a vast number of different treatments. If you have taken the time to research this field, you may be wondering what's the most effective form of treatment for your particular needs.
In a nutshell, the most effective form of treatment must be determined by conducting an assessment. Facts pertaining to your addiction and mental health issues must be determined using a proven and tested assessment. Fortunately, Rehab 4 Addiction has developed such an assessment.
When you contact Rehab 4 Addiction on 0800 140 4690, we carry out this assessment and it is completely free of charge and without obligation. Once this assessment is conducted, we then recommend you to treatment centres that cater to your specific needs.
For instance, if your addiction is due to traumatic experiences, we ensure you attend a rehab clinic specialising in this area. If your addiction is due to stress, we likewise ensure you receive treatment at a rehab clinic in Worcestershire that specialises in the treatment of stress.
