There is a lot of support available for people living with alcohol dependence in Wigan. Saying “I need help with alcohol” is an important step on the road to recovery and, once someone is ready to take that step, they can seek out alcohol support groups in the local area.
Support and encouragement from others can play a pivotal role in someone’s successful alcohol withdrawal, and it’s often so successful that no other treatment is needed.
Other people need extra, more intensive treatment for alcoholism, particularly if their addiction has begun to really affect their personal and professional lives and their own sense of overall well-being.
GPs often make referrals to patients to local alcohol rehab centres, while other people choose to approach alcohol recovery centres independently and directly by searching for “alcohol rehab near me” online.
The Ocean Recovery Centre specialises in helping clients in Wigan with alcohol withdrawal treatment. We also offer alcohol recovery strategies that can be used long term, empowering clients to regain control and live healthier, happier lives.
Our highly experienced, supportive rehabilitation centre team is here to support you through every stage of your recovery. We are committed to helping you achieve lasting freedom from alcohol addiction, valuing confidentiality and treating you with respect at all times.
Do I need alcohol withdrawal treatment?
Alcohol is associated with fun and socialising and this is absolutely fine in moderation. However, you should consider treatment if:
- you regularly drink alcohol during the day
- you find yourself over-indulging when you socialise
- you find it difficult to remember what you have done, who you have spoken to, and where you’ve been when you’ve had a drink
- you depend on alcohol to feel relaxed and deal with stress
- you can drink more than you used to, without feeling drunk (higher tolerance to alcohol)
- your weight and/or appetite is being affected by alcohol
- you are experiencing low mood and/or anxiety after drinking
It may be that, while you have a feeling that you have a dependency on alcohol, the thought of giving up makes you feel worried or miserable. Denial is a major part of alcohol dependence so, if you have an inkling that this may be an issue, it is important to confront it. It is possible that you are becoming physically dependent on alcohol and if this is the case you should seek support immediately.
What is an alcohol rehabilitation program from our Wigan clinic?
Alcohol rehabilitation programs are conducted from our Wigan clinic to help you stop drinking excessively. You will receive a personalised selection of treatments that are carefully tailored to your individual needs.
Drinking excessively has a detrimental effect on every aspect of your life. Like other addictions, alcohol affects a person’s ability to reason, to think clearly, and it alter the chemistry of the brain. As mentioned earlier, denial is a key part of alcohol dependence because it’s the dependence which tricks addicts into believing they have their drinking under control. If you feel irritable and find it difficult to cope if you can’t have a drink, it’s a warning sign that something needs to change.
What is an alcohol rehabilitation centre like in Wigan?
Our alcohol rehab clinic in Wigan is a comfortable, safe environment in which you will be supported by our highly trained staff motivated by patients’ recoveries. Many people ask us when they first contact us, “How long does alcohol rehabilitation take in your Wigan clinic?”. You can expect to stay with us for 28 days.
During the 28 day period you have with us, your body and brain will have the opportunity to repair and heal from the damage caused by alcohol. Particularly in the early parts of your withdrawal, you may experience Delerium Tremens (commonly known as “The DTs”) or Severe Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms. These are serious medical conditions that will require you to be monitored and supported 24/7 by our friendly Wigan team. It is important that you stay with us during this time and do not attempt to leave the clinic. It is even more important that you don’t try total detox on your own – please don’t do this.
Whilst the symptoms of the withdrawal phase are unpleasant, this is an important step towards recovery that far outweighs the mental and physical pain of addiction.
Therapy and aftercare
During your stay with us, we will support you in identifying the life events and feelings that led you to become addicted to alcohol. For many people this is the key to recovery, answering the questions they needed to live a happier life free from addiction.
At the end of your 28 days at our clinic you will feel infinitely healthier and more in control of your life. But this is just the beginning of your journey.
We aim to give you everything you need to stop drinking again. Our non-judgement, fully-licenced therapists, many recovering alcoholics themselves, are there to offer full understanding. Backing that up are various forms of therapy including holistic therapy, group therapy, and one-to-one therapy.
Does alcohol rehab really work?
Not everyone who starts an alcohol rehab program sees it through to the end. According to Public Health England’s latest statistics, 29% of clients drop out of their courses. However, those who do continue for the full 28 days see impressive results. Over 85% of clients who complete their alcohol rehab programs are declared “treatment completed – free of dependence”.
So the resounding answer is that alcohol rehab does work but it does takes work on your part. In order to succeed, you must commit to completing the full program at our Wigan recovery centre.
Does alcohol rehab affect custody and visitation rights?
Alcohol rehab can affect custody and visitation rights positively. Courts and social services teams will look more favourably on your case if you have taken the appropriate steps towards recovery and can show you are committed to ending your addiction to alcohol.
