It can sometimes be difficult to identify an alcohol addiction in yourself or a family member. This can be due to the UK’s big drinking culture and the normalisation of socially binge drinking. But there are still ways to monitor if you or a loved one has developed an alcohol addiction.

First of all, do you struggle to remain sober for long periods? Next, do you have a high tolerance? This can be due to your body getting used to the high alcohol levels in your system. Finally, the most undeniable proof is if you experience alcohol withdrawal symptoms after a while without substance abuse.

Who Does Alcohol Rehab Work For?

Alcohol rehab is available to anyone who needs it and can safely complete the treatments.

It can be boiled down to a drug or alcohol rehab centre for someone struggling with drug or alcohol abuse. If a person is struggling to stay sober, wants to cut down on their substance abuse or is returning after a relapse, the option of rehab is always there.

With the right treatment plan and support system, anyone can achieve long term recovery through an alcohol rehab centre.

However, it is important to remember that the rehabilitation process is a lot of work and can strain a person’s physical and mental health. Because of this, those with a delicate physical or mental state may not be admitted due to a higher risk than others.

These people can include those who are a suicide risk or people at risk of an alcohol withdrawal seizure.

But just because a traditional treatment plan may not be the best option available, it doesn’t mean that rehabs won’t still be able to offer help.

Most alcohol rehab centres offer outpatient treatment options, including at-home detoxes and alternative therapy sessions. These can make alcohol rehabilitation more accessible to those that would not be able to follow a traditional treatment plan.

The Benefits of Treatment

The main benefit of the treatment options available in an alcohol rehab centre is the safe environment.

Treatments available in an alcohol rehab centre are done by fully trained medical staff who have years of experience enabling people to achieve long term recovery. The treatment options will provide you with the skills and tools you will need to remain sober even after you leave the rehab centre.

The benefits of treatment plans can be seen through how it gives your body a fresh start through the alcohol detox and builds up resilience through therapy that can help you get to the core reason behind why you rely on substance abuse.

Alcohol Rehab Treatments

Treatment options deal with chemical and mental dependence.

The start of most treatment plans will consist of an alcohol detox which will allow you to focus on the rest of your treatments without the distraction of alcohol withdrawals.

The alcohol detox takes around ten days to complete, and during that time, you will experience alcohol withdrawal symptoms.

Following the alcohol detox, you will move on to therapy.

Different therapies are designed to treat different mental issues. For example, if you are struggling with the isolating nature of struggling with substance abuse, then you may be referred to group therapy.

Or, if you need to focus on mindfulness and healthily centring yourself to express your thoughts and feelings, you may be recommended for holistic therapy. This is sometimes called art therapy, and it is about giving you a relaxing low, stress outlet for you to express yourself.

Your treatment plan will be unique for you and designed to give you the best possible chance of achieving long term recovery.

Inpatient Vs Outpatient

Which treatment plan you decide on is based on your needs and lifestyle.

Many prefer inpatient as it is a much more linear experience. The controlled environment can make it easier to avoid temptation. It is, however, the more expensive option.

Some people can also be put off by spending so long away from their family members and friends.

Outpatient is a cheaper option and can be done around the existing treatment plans you are working through. They don’t require you to leave your home or share a room with strangers, which can put many people off.

However, it can cause the rehabilitation process to take longer and be easier for relapse without constant monitoring from rehab staff.
