Are you unable to stop drinking alcohol? Do you promise yourself you will never drink again, only to break that promise? 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. It affects well over a million people.
Luckily, help is at hand. We are here to advise you on how to beat this disease.

Have you attempted to ‘free yourself’ from substances before and failed? The sad truth is that only a small fraction of people manage to beat their addiction on their own.
One of the most common addictions is alcoholism. This disease is very hard to beat. Why? Because alcohol affects neurotransmitters in the brain known as GABA-A. When you stop drinking, GABA-A activity goes down, causing a range of powerful withdrawal symptoms.
Rather than go through these symptoms, most addicts will continue to drink alcohol to self-medicate. This is why the rates of relapse are so high.
Another thing which makes it hard to treat substance abuse problems is trauma. Trauma is the cause of many substance abuse problems. Those who are suffering need to come to terms with their trauma to heal fully. This is one of the many reasons why inpatient rehab in Worcestershire is so key. You need proper therapy to deal with trauma. You can get that in our Worcestershire rehabs.
Alcohol and drug rehab in Worcestershire can be unique for each patient. Every person has their own issues, and our rehabs in Worcestershire aim to cater to that fact. They offer a range of treatment options.
Treatment options at our drug and alcohol rehab centres in Worcestershire are varied. They include day programmes and group therapy sessions. They also include inpatient rehab, which is proven to be the most effective form of rehab.
Staff give full support and care to all patients, no matter their background. We help everyone who comes through our doors as much as we can.
Rehab is a place of support. The environment and treatments help people beat their addictions. With our Worcestershire drug rehab programmes, you can start to get your life back on track.
People do have different experiences in our rehab centres in Worcestershire. However, the main thing they have in common is that rehab gave them the tools to take their life back.
Your treatment options are:
12 step programmes
We are available for contact 24/7, by email phone or online voice chat. Our referral team will set up a free screening for you to attend as soon as you can.
When visiting our rehab Worcestershire centres for the first time, you will receive an assessment. This will cover your medical and substance abuse history. During the assessment, the rehab team will create a treatment plan with you.
You are then welcome to take time to think about your options and discuss them with family. You can come and look at a few of our Worcestershire rehab centres to see which you like best.
Below we explain the general rehab process at our drug and alcohol rehab Worcestershire centres. It consists of three stages:
Depending on the length and severity of the addiction, detox is inevitable with most patients, and our staff are trained to provide the most support they can through this challenging time.
With a physical addiction, detox is your body trying to return to its healthy functioning state and is a difficult process to go through.
Confronting your addiction before things get to this stage can significantly reduce the recovery time for addicts; however, our staff are highly trained and have helped many people recover, no matter how severe the addiction.
What many alcoholics and drug addicts fail to realise, is that recovering from addiction is a process that is much more than abstaining from the substance.
Most people turn to drugs as a way to relieve some of the trauma and pain they may have suffered in life, and confronting this and learning to live a healthy and drug-free life is possible through support and rehabilitation.
Aftercare is a helpful way to avoid a dreaded relapse. It involves continuing therapy, counselling and group sessions to keep you on the right track.
Relapsing is common amongst those who get out of recovery and is absolutely nothing to feel ashamed about, but with supportive aftercare can significantly benefit the life of the recovering addict, and can help them live a life free from addiction or alcohol dependence.
First, you may choose to detox from home. Home-based detoxes are cheap, but the chances of relapse are greater. We do not recommend a home-based detox for this reason. Your second option is to do a home detox at the same time as therapy sessions. These therapy sessions would happen on an outpatient basis. This option is quite risky too as the temptation to relapse will still be there.
The third and final option is to get treatment from the safety of a residential treatment centre. In a centre like this there is less risk of relapse.
One recent study found that environmental factors and social cues are key in drug addiction. In modern times we have begun to get the idea that drug addiction is a complex thing. It depends on more than just your brain craving a substance. Patterns of behaviour matter too.
How long does inpatient treatment in Worcestershire last for? The answer will depend on how bad your addiction is. It also depends on how bad your mental health issues are. The more severe these issues, the longer you must remain in a residential clinic.
Residential treatment requires on average between 7 to 28 days to complete. It also provides for weekly outpatient sessions once you return home. You will get these outpatient sessions for 12 months after you leave rehab. This is part of aftercare and is a way to help you stay clean.
Below is an outline of a typical day at one of our rehab centres in Worcestershire:
Patients wake up early each morning and start their day with a healthy breakfast. Some meditation may follow to clear the head. After this, morning meetings occur.
During the afternoon, there is a wide range of treatment and therapy sessions. The patient can attend the sessions they need based on their situation.
There is also free time during the day for leisure activities such as ping pong, basketball, and pool.
12-step meetings take place after the evening meal. After this, patients are expected to go to bed in good time.
You may be wondering what the best form of treatment is for your particular needs.
