About Us

Alcohol Helper is an impartial online support service for Alcohol Addiction

At Alcohol Helper, we’re committed to finding the right treatment for your alcohol problem or the right treatment for someone close to you. We work with the most experienced professionals in the field of alcohol addiction, including counsellors, therapists and psychologists and have close relationships with the best residential detox and rehab centres in the UK and throughout the world.

Our service is impartial, independent and confidential, and we’re here to support you all the way. We know this is a difficult and confusing time but don’t worry, we’re on hand to help you 24/7.

Take your first step and get a Free Assessment

Our alcohol addiction counsellors are trained to assess the extent of your problem with alcohol over the telephone. Once you’ve had an assessment, we can identify the best form of treatment for you, whether that is residential rehabilitation, an outpatient programme or alcohol counselling. We’ll explain your options carefully, address any questions or concerns you may have, and tell you what your next step to recovery from alcoholism will be.

What if I’m calling on behalf of someone else?

If you’re worried that a loved one, a friend or work colleague has a problem with alcohol, we’re fully trained to help. It can be very difficult to get someone you know to accept they need treatment, so we’ll discuss our alcohol intervention programme with you. A properly orchestrated intervention is usually the kindest and most loving way of getting an alcoholic into treatment, and we offer professional family interventions and corporate interventions.

Is residential treatment always necessary?

No, but on the whole residential rehabilitation affords you the best chance of a long-term recovery and abstinence from alcohol abuse. Residential rehab provides support around the clock and a programme of treatment that addresses the physical and psychological issues behind the addiction. Furthermore, detox from alcohol is usually most successful in a residential centre, although we can organise home detox if we deem this is suitable for you.

If you have a lesser problem with alcohol, we’ll find you alternative treatment, such as local counselling, therapy and attendance at support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous.

If your problem is severe but you can’t commit to residential rehab, we also offer Intensive Alcohol Addiction Therapy. This is a unique programme developed by Alcohol Helper which provides the individual intensive therapy in your local area and the ongoing support of an experienced alcohol addiction therapist.

How do I find a residential alcohol treatment centre?

You don’t – that’s our job. Every detox and rehab clinic is different and we know which treatments they offer. We’ll find you the one that’s most suited to your circumstances. We’ll work with the centre so that they can develop a personalised programme for you. We’ll be there for you all the way to answer any questions you have. If necessary, we can organise things like transport to your chosen clinic. We want you to feel safe and comfortable so we can take you there ourselves or organise a professional sober companion to accompany you. During your stay, you can rest assured that we’ll stay in touch to monitor your progress and to report back to your loved ones.

What happens after residential treatment?

Don’t worry, we don’t just leave you to get on with it. Recovery from alcoholism is a long process which unfortunately doesn’t end as soon as you’ve finished residential rehab. If you need it, we’ll arrange for a sober companion to stay with you and ease you back into the real world. You’ll also be provided with a tailor-made programme of aftercare which might include local alcohol counselling and attendance at Alcoholics Anonymous.

How do I pay for treatment?

Fortunately, most private insurers cover treatment for alcoholism. We also have a range of payment options for those who don’t have private insurance which we can discuss further over the phone.
