Ocean Recovery Alcohol Addiction Rehab Centre in Blackpool
As soon as someone says “I need help with alcohol”, that’s the first step on their road to recovery. That road will be difficult and long but ultimately worthwhile. And every week, here in Blackpool, a number of people make that admission to themselves – an admission that will lead to an end to alcohol dependence and perhaps their first step will be reaching out to local alcohol support groups in Blackpool and the surrounding areas.
Alcohol support groups are wonderful and they offer people with dependence a way to meet other people who want to achieve alcohol withdrawal themselves. After all, we still live in a society that makes a moral judgement over alcohol dependence when, in fact, it is a medical illness.
Some people find themselves needing more and getting help for their alcoholism is a complicated and confusing process. Many of our patients tell us that the support they need is not particularly well sign posted by the NHS and their GP.
Most GPs only look to make a referral to local alcohol rehab centres in the most acute cases because of pressures on NHS funding. Others prefers to handle it themselves, using the internet to search for “alcohol rehab near me” to find the locations of nearby alcohol recovery centres.
Here at Blackpool’s Ocean Recovery Centre, we meet our clients both via referral and direct. We work with people wanting effective alcohol withdrawal treatment and the first crucial step is to break the physical need for a drink. That’s what we do really well and we back that up with alcohol recovery strategies so that they can ride through the triggers which previously caused them to have a drink.
The staff here at our Blackpool rehabilitation centre are experienced, compassionate, and professional. You won’t be alone on your journey through the initial detox and over the longer term with your recovery. If you’ve visited this page feeling that now is the time to get the help you need, we’d really appreciate the chance to meet with you. Call us on 01253 847 553 and speak with one of our colleagues in complete confidence. Alternatively, scroll to the bottom of the page to leave us your details and we’ll contact you.
Alcohol withdrawal treatment – how do I know I need it?
Alcohol dependence is something very personal and, for each of our clients, it manifests itself in different ways. For our team, there are seven key signs you need to be aware of – the more of these signs you have yourself, the more likely it is that you’ll need our help.
- Do you drink a lot during the day?
- Do you tend to drink way too much in social situations?
- When you wake up after a session on drink, can you clearly remember where you were, what you did, and who you were with?
- Do you need alcohol to feel relaxed, particularly if there is a potentially stressful situation approaching?
- Do you find that, compared with a little while ago, that you need to drink more to achieve the same effect? Does the drink ever really feel like it “touches the sides” anymore?
- Have you experienced either rapid weight gain or loss? And if you have, do you feel your appetite for food has changed?
- Do you generally feel anxious or depressed?
They’re all worrying signs. A lot of our clients have told us that, in addition, there has been a feeling in the pit of their stomach that something is not right about their relationship with alcohol but the idea of drinking less or not drinking at all makes them even more stressed, anxious, or tense. Their body is telling them that something needs to change but they feel that they’re in denial of the seriousness of their situation – it’s like the alcohol is in control and not them.
If this is you, then you are almost certainly physically dependent on alcohol. And you need help – now. What’s the next step? Alcohol rehabilitation.
What is an alcohol rehabilitation program? Is it available for our Blackpool clinic?
Alcohol dependence, sometimes referred to as alcohol abuse, is a programme of treatments designed to you, your life, and your personality to deliver you with permanent alcohol rehabilitation. What that means is that you are in control of alcohol – not the other way around – and you don’t feel any longer the need to drink excessive amounts of alcohol.
One thing that many people don’t realise about alcoholic addiction (and other forms of addiction) is that alcohol actually changes your brain chemistry – that’s the way your mind works. Your mind develops ways to tell itself that alcohol consumption is fine and that, no matter what worries you have about it, that it’s OK to continue drinking. Have you ever gone for a few hours and not felt right because you’ve not had a drink? That’s your chemically-altered mind telling you that.
What is an alcohol rehabilitation centre like in Blackpool?
First, our alcohol rehab clinic here in Blackpool is a residential clinic. You’ll be staying with us in our quiet and private facility for 28 days. The first question we’re always asked by potential clients is “How long does alcohol rehabilitation take in your Blackpool centre?” The answer to that is that the first part of your journey takes 28 days.
Why 28 days? That’s because, within that time scale, your body has a real opportunity to start to repair the damage to it that’s been caused by the alcohol. Alcohol dependence is both physical and psychological – the first 28 days is more focused on the physical. During this time, depending on your current level of consumption and addiction, you may undergo Severe Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms or Delirium Tremens. These are serious conditions which require, for your own safety, a medical team to be on hand. We have a medical team around the clock here at our Blackpool clinic.
Once this stage has passed, the Detox program, although difficult, does become easier. And you have just taken a huge and significant step forward.
When you’re with us at our Blackpool clinic, you’ll work with our team to uncover the reasons why you became dependent on alcohol. Without understanding them and the triggers behind your compulsion to drink alcohol, your journey will be much harder. This is part of your long-term recovery from alcohol.
Our support does not stop after the 28 days of residential care has passed. Our long-term goal for you is the same as your long-term goal for yourself – so that you have everything you need to never need a drink again in the way that you need one now.
We do this through a variety of different approaches, including group therapy, one-to-one therapy and holistic therapy. At all times, our fully-licenced, non-judgemental therapists are available to help.
Yes. For the people who see through their treatment, the success rate is 85.2%, according to Public Health England’s latest statistics,
Just under 3 in 10 clients drop out or leave their course. 37,264 people in England complete an alcohol rehab course every year with 31,982 reporting “treatment completed – free of dependence” – that’s a success rate of 85.2%.
They’re great figures and a real testament to the clients who undergo treatment and the healthcare professionals engaged in and invested in their care. But please do be aware that it’s not easy and alcohol rehabilitation is one of the most challenging things you’ll ever experience here at our Blackpool clinic.
Being alcohol dependent never works in your favour if you’re seeking custody over or visitation rights to your children. Judges, social workers, and police all put the safety and wellbeing of a child at the centre of their decision making.
However, demonstrating that you’ve had the strength of will and character to undergo an alcohol treatment course and that you want alcohol recovery for yourself and your family on a permanent basis looks much better to those who are making the decision.
