Outpatient Treatment

Alcoholism exists on a continuum from less problematic to highly problematic. Residential treatment is an effective and appropriate option for people at the highly problematic end of the continuum, such as those who have a physical dependence on alcohol and drink every day. However, for people at the less problematic end of the addiction spectrum, such as binge-pattern drinkers users, our experience, backed up by clinical studies from all over the world, is that outpatient treatment is an effective alternative to residential alcohol treatment.

Alcohol Helper works closely with specialist alcohol addiction counsellors, therapists and healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive outpatient programmes tailored to individual needs and delivered locally.
