Getting a loved one treatment for alcoholism in Lancashire
Alcohol addiction has devastating effects on the body and on relationships. If someone you know is suffering from alcoholism, you need to take action as soon as possible. But what do you do if the individual doesn’t recognise he or she has a problem with alcohol? Intervention is proven to be the most successful way of getting someone onto the path of recovery. Through a properly structured intervention, the alcoholic is confronted with the reality of their addiction and the impact it has on those around them. We offer a professional intervention service in Lancashire with experienced alcohol interventionists.
Once your loved one has accepted he or she needs treatment, the next step in the recovery is usually an alcohol detoxification. Abrupt withdrawal from alcohol can be extremely uncomfortable and even dangerous. Detox is therefore usually arranged in a residential treatment centre where clients are provided with medication, such as Libirum or valim, to alleviate the physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms, and are constantly monitored by trained staff. Detox for alcoholism can take from 7 – 10 days.
For a long-term recovery from alcohol addiction, detox needs to be followed by a programme of rehab treatment to help the individual understand the nature of their addictions and to equip them with the skills to live an alcohol-free life. As with detox, rehab is usually more effective in a residential clinic. The rehab centres in the Lancashire area offer treatment programmes based on the 12 step model of abstinence and include a range of counselling, therapies and educational workshops.
Recovering alcoholics require a period of aftercare in order to avoid relapse. Aftercare in the Lancashire area may include local individual counselling and attendance of support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous.
