Alcohol Treatment

Treatment for alcohol varies from person to person, but there are set approached in order to overcome alcohol aduse and addiction.

While many people think that alcoholics should be able to help themselves and ‘just stop’, the reality is very different. Addiciton can be defined as doing something to yourself despite knowing it’s detrimental to you, so although it may appear that people who drink too much might be enjoying themselves, or might choose to do it, rarely is that the case. Almost every alcoholic would like to stop, it’s just the fear of living without alcohol, the pain avoidance, habit and physical dependency that keeps them picking up the glass.

Addiction is progressive, and left to their own devices, all addicts will get worse – unless they get treatment, help or something earth-shattering happens to them.

Because addicts can’t help themselves, then they need help external to themselves in order to get well. Some people need an intervention in order to help them take the first step.

This help can come in many forms, the first being detox. To safely and comfortably begin the process of recovery, a detox is advised in order to come through alcohol withdrawals. Detoxes can be done at home, outpatient rehab and inpatient residential rehab. It’s not advisable to go ‘cold trukey’ as this may lead to alcoholic seizure in some people.

The next stage after detox is some form of programme of recovery. This programme can include residential or outpatient rehab, peer support groups such as alcoholics anonymous, Smart Recovery, alcohol counselling, group therapy and many other treatments that can help reduce stress, help natural sleep and anything else that can keep a sober alcoholic relaxed and focused on their recovery.
