Help for alcohol addiction in Dorse
Treatment for an addiction to alcohol can only work if the individual admits they have a problem. This may require an intervention by a specialist alcohol interventionist. Through a properly orchestrated intervention, the individual is confronted with the reality of their addiction and how it affects those around them. We have highly experienced alcohol interventionists in Dorset who will manage the intervention process.
The next stage in the treatment for alcohol addiction is usually detoxification which removes alcohol from the system. Detox from alcohol should always be carried out in a medically controlled environment. Withdrawal from alcohol can be uncomfortable and even life-threatening so detox is safest in a residential detox clinic where the client will have 24/7 supervision. Alcohol detox usually lasts between 7 and 10 days and may involve the prescription of medication from a group of tablets called benzodiazepines.
Alcohol detox alone is not enough to ensure long-term abstinence. The alcoholic needs to undergo a rehabilitative programme that helps them understand the nature of the alcohol addiction and addresses the psychological dependency to alcohol. Rehab also helps the client to develop coping strategies to live a life free of alcohol and to rebuild family relationships that may have broken down as a result of the addiction. Residential rehab treatment gives the individual the best chance of a healthy, long-term recovery from alcohol abuse. The residential clinics in Dorest provide the highest level of care and an excellent programme of treatments to set the individual on the path to recovery.
Following alochol rehab, aftercare is essential in order to prevent relapse. This may involve local counselling in Dorset and attendance of Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.
