What is Alcoholism?

Alcoholism is the most common form of drug addiction worldwide. In the UK alone, almost 600,000 people live with a dependency for alcohol and yet only 18% seek help. Often times people struggling with alcoholism are reluctant to admit their problem due to embarrassment and sometimes they don’t immediately recognise the behaviour as problematic since the substance is legal.

Unhealthy behaviours such as purposeful drunkenness and binge drinking can be overlooked and have become normalised in society. However, the consequences of such behaviour can have a serious effect on a person than just a hangover. Excessive alcohol consumption can lead to high blood pressure, strokes, cancer, liver disease and alcohol poisoning.

It can also lead to poor mental health, cognitive abilities can degrade, depression can set in and there is a higher risk of suicide. Heavy drinkers can also affect the people around them, lashing out at friends, strangers, partners and even their own children. Understanding the mental attachment to the substance is often the key to a full recovery and relapse prevention.

Reaching out for help is your first hurdle, and now that you’re here, you’re on your way. At Rehab 4 Addiction in we know that searching for the right centre in a location near to you can be an overwhelming and daunting task at times, but we aim to alleviate this unnecessary stress.

Our Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Beckenham can lift you out of a dark place and into a healthier lifestyle, away from addiction triggers. We’re here for you so you don’t have to go ‘cold turkey’ alone. This is your second step, a hard one for some, but we are here with you side-by-side along the way.

Alcohol Rehabilitation in Beckenham will start with a detoxification process. This is a controlled treatment that frees you from the physical effects of alcohol before we get to the root of the problem.

For acute alcoholism, this can take anywhere from 5-10 days and your specialist can provide extra help along the way with prescribed medications for withdrawal symptoms and counselling advice. For those suffering from anxiety or depression alongside their addiction, the process can take longer.

We recommend the full 28-day residential stay as these have been proven to prevent relapse in the future. However, all of our treatments are tailored completely to your needs and mapped out for you specifically. Detoxification treatment is also available in a home setting, however, there are different criteria.

Once you are freed from the physical effects of alcoholism the root of the problem is uncovered in a series of counselling sessions. Here, a trained specialist will work through your triggers and behaviours, understand where relapse is likely and map out a way to change your mindset around alcohol.

Through these cognitive behavioural therapy sessions, you will feel a release from the substance, understand triggers that lead you into the behaviour and learn new ways of thinking in order to prevent relapse in future.

At Rehab 4 Addiction in Beckenham, we understand the importance of long-term recovery and this is why we recommend the residential stay.

We hope that you will leave the centre with a new outlook on life, an awareness of safe environments you can return to and the ability to repair relationships that may have become broken or disjointed from your past behaviour.

We know that Alcoholism doesn’t just affect the afflicted person, and this is why we work through rebuilding relationships during the CBT process.

What is Drug Addiction?

Drug addiction is a substance abuse disorder which is commonly identified by uncontrollable and compulsive drug use even when the user is aware of the harmful and negative effects. Long-term drug addiction creates permanent brain changes which leads to dangerous and harmful behaviours. Drug use is often a voluntary choice. We are not built with a physical craving for drugs.

It may begin due to coercion from a friend or partner or peer pressure in a group of friends. However, as the drug addiction develops, the ability to choose is taken out of the person’s hands as the drug use becomes compulsive and uncontrollable. Much like other chronic diseases relapse is always a possibility.

At Rehab 4 Addiction in Beckenham, we aim to reduce the chances of relapse through counselling and understanding the root of the mental connection to the drug. With every patient, we are there on their journey and we want to see long-lasting change, this is why all of our treatments are tailored completely to the individual.

What is Drug Rehab in Beckenham?

Much like the process of alcohol rehabilitation, each person will undergo a detoxification process. For drug addiction, this can be a high hurdle to take on but know that we are there for you with expertly trained professionals on hand to help alleviate the distress caused by withdrawal symptoms.

What is most important to us at our Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Beckenham is understanding the mental connection. Once the physical addiction to the drug in question is released from the body, we work on understanding triggers and situations in which you may feel compelled to relapse.

Through extensive counselling and talking therapies, we will get to the reason why recreational drugs may have an effect on your life and work through avoiding these situations in the future. Our specialists are on hand every step of the way.
