Alcohol Rehab Bournemouth
The first time someone struggling with alcohol dependence in Bournemouth says to themselves, “I need help with alcohol”, it’s a positive sign that they’re ready to make a change. Often, the next step is to look for local alcohol support groups to help with their drinking problem.
For many people, simply joining a local group is enough. With support and encouragement from others, they soon find they no longer need any help with alcohol withdrawal.
However, other people find they need more support with dealing with their alcoholism. This is particularly true for those whose personal and working relationships are being affected by their drinking.
GPs often encourage patients to attend local alcohol rehab centres and can make referrals on their behalf. Some people choose to handle the referral process themselves, starting by looking for alcohol recovery centres online by Googling “alcohol rehab near me”.
At Cassiobury Court, we support clients by providing alcohol withdrawal treatment and follow up alcohol recovery strategies. By working closely with our clients, we can help them regain control of their lives and bodies.
Our entire rehabilitation centre team at Bournemouth is committed to helping you live a healthier, happier life free from alcohol dependency. To talk to us in confidence about your needs, please contact us on (number) or leave a message on the contact form below.
Do I need alcohol withdrawal treatment?
Not sure if you need alcohol withdrawal treatment?
Alcohol is a big part of the British way of life and it’s so often associated with having a good time. However, you should consider alcohol withdrawal treatment if:
- you often drink during the day
- you drink too much when you socialise
- you find yourself relying on alcohol to help you cope with difficult situations
- it takes you longer to get drunk than it used to (your tolerance levels have risen)
- your weight has suddenly increased or dropped as a result of drinking
- you often feel depressed or anxious
You may know in your heart that you’re drinking too much but you tell yourself that you have it under control. Perhaps loved ones have expressed their concerns about your relationship with alcohol but you tell them they’re over-reacting. It is important to understand that denial is a major part of alcohol dependence so, if you know deep down that you have a problem, you must address it.
If you are struggling to accept that drinking is affecting your life, you may have become physically dependent on alcohol. If this is the case, it is important that you seek urgent help.
What is an alcohol rehabilitation program from our Bournemouth clinic?
Alcohol rehabilitation involves a series of treatments to help you gain control of your drinking problem. The program is carried out at our Bournemouth Clinic and delivered by our supportive team of experts.
Just like any other addiction, alcoholism can completely take over your life. It also affects your physical health and alters your brain chemistry, tricking you into thinking you don’t have a problem. As we mentioned earlier, denial is a key element of addiction. By working closely with our team, you can learn to take back control.
What is an alcohol rehabilitation centre like in Bournemouth?
Your first step to recovery is a residential stay at our alcohol rehab clinic in Bournemouth. Many people ask us “How long does alcohol rehabilitation take?”, and the answer is that you will stay at our friendly clinic for 28 days.
During the 28 days you spend with our team, your body will be given the time to repair and heal itself from the damage caused by drinking. Your brain will also be able to recover so, after a while, it will no longer be able to tell you to continue drinking when everyone around you tells you to stop. No longer experiencing denial is a major part of your recovery process.
It is also important that you understand the physical effects of stopping drinking. This can be very difficult to cope with at first. During the early days of your treatment, you may suffer with Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms or Delirium Tremens as the toxins leave your body. These are serious conditions that require you to be supervised by medical staff around the clock. At no point should you attempt to leave our Bournemouth Clinic – we are here to help you and this level of withdrawal should not be attempted on your own.
The pain and discomfort you feel during the withdrawal phase are well worth it in the long run – compare a few hours of pain with a life free of alcohol.
Therapy and aftercare
During your stay with us, we will work with you to help you understand how you became addicted to alcohol in the first place. When you understand the triggers, it is much easier to identify coping strategies that will help you avoid drinking in the future.
By the end of your 28 day stay with us you will feel much better than you have in years. However, it is important that you understand that you have to make a lifelong commitment to being free of addiction, so this is just the beginning.
Our aim is to help you regain control of your life – not just now, but forever. Our non-judgemental, highly trained and licenced therapists are here to support you whenever you need us, offering a range of treatments and talking therapies. Many of the team are recovering alcoholics too, so you can trust us to understand your personal situation and do everything we can to help.
Does alcohol rehab really work?
Public Health England’s latest statistics show that 85.2% of people undergoing alcohol rehab programs have now been declared completely free of dependence. That’s an incredible success rate, showing that if you are willing to commit to the full program you have a great chance of recovery.
So, the answer to the question is “yes” – but please be aware that this isn’t going to be plain sailing. You will need to commit to staying away from home for the full 28 days with no alcohol whatsoever. But once you take that step, the changes to your life will be immeasurable.
Does alcohol rehab affect custody and visitation rights?
Yes – in a good way! If courts and social services departments can see you are making positive steps to deal with your alcohol addiction problem, they are likely to look at your case more favourably.
