Help for alcoholics in Leicestershire
Treatment for an addiction to alcohol can only work if the alcoholic 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 alcohol problem and the impact it has on those around them. At Addiction Helper, we have a team of experienced alcohol interventionists in the Leicestershire 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. Sudden withdrawal from alcohol can be uncomfortable and even life-threatening so detox is safest in a residential detox clinic where the client has 24/7 supervision. Alcohol detoxification can take between 3 and 7 days and may involve the administration of medication such as tranquilisers to alleviate the withdrawal symptoms.
Detox alone will not ensure long-term abstinence. The alcoholic needs to undergo a rehabilitative programme that helps him or her understand the nature of the addiction and addresses the psychological dependency to alcohol. Rehab also helps the addict develop coping strategies to live a life free of alcohol addiction and to rebuild family relationships that may have broken down. Residential rehab treatment affords the individual the best chance of a healthy, long-term recovery. The residential clinics around Leicestershire provide an intensive structured programme of rehabilitative treatments based upon the proven 12 step model of abstinence.
Following rehab, aftercare is essential in order to prevent relapse. This may involve local counselling in the Leicestershire and attendance of Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.
