Alcoholism

Alcoholism, alcohol use disorder, functioning alcoholism, or alcohol dependence, are all conditions characterised by regular excessive alcohol consumption. Excessive alcohol use can lead to dependency, where its consumption becomes a daily necessity in order to ward off the physical and mental symptoms of alcohol withdrawal such as the shakes, anxiety, depression and nausea. For many people, occasional alcohol use is a harmless pleasure, and is often used as a social lubricant. However, regular use is a slippery slope, as it can become a means of escape from daily life. Occasional use can become regular, which can become excessive, leading to addiction. Alcohol addiction, or any substance addiction, can have a devastating impact on the health of the user and to family and social relationships.

The consequences of long term alcohol dependence are many, including psychological, physical, and behavioural issues. Physical effects include cirrhosis of the liver, some cancers, and depression and anxiety, along with other mood disorders. Without treatment, alcohol addiction can be fatal. However, treatment is available, and with the right amount of care and compassion, those who are deeply affected can be reached.

The symptoms of alcohol addiction are dangerous to one’s mental and physical health. Some of the most common symptoms of alcoholism are; violent and extreme mood swings, taking part in risky behaviour that one wouldn’t normally do – such as driving under the influence, worrying or feeling anxious about where the next drink is going to come from, becoming shaky, angry, or irritable when you can’t have a drink, believing that alcohol helps you relax or unwind and deal with stressful situations, and being in denial about the frequency of your alcohol use.

At Addcounsel’s luxury rehab centre, clients are provided with all the available resources needed to resolve any potential underlying factors that could be triggering the client’s addiction. Those seeking help in treating their addiction will have a tailor mode approach applied to them, taking into account their own unique, individual circumstances.

During and Aftercare Treatment Programme

We are able to offer a program that is uniquely tailored to the client’s individual needs. The carefully chosen team guides clients through our specialised four-stage Recovery Route framework.

Assessment
The team carries out an intensive multi-disciplinary assessment drawn from psychological, therapeutic, and nutritional approaches and values, in order to obtain a clear understanding of the client’s individual circumstances. Having obtained this information, the response is a organising an extensive and bespoke care plan and a specialised team, so that the next stage – treatment – can be entered.

Treatment
We have an extensive menu of treatment services available for clients. Working alongside the individual, we will be able to decide on the right empirically tested modalities to use, to ensure the best possible outcomes and set the client on the path to a sustained and long-lasting recovery. All our treatment modalities are applied with a focus on the client and their family.
