Alcohol Rehab Cambridge
Throughout the world, people enjoy the occasional drink for a plethora of reasons. Have something to celebrate – there is a specific alcoholic drink that is right for the occasion; champagne. Want to socialise with some of your friends – there is another drink that is considered the right beverage for the occasion; beer. Had a nice dinner with family? A glass of wine to wash your meal down is perfectly acceptable in many cultures.
As you can see, drinking alcohol is one of the world’s favourite pastimes. And in all fairness, drinking responsibly can have positive benefits. As it lowers inhibitions, it can help people be a bit more open in social situations and help them feel more at eased in relax. To add to that, alcohol can have health benefits as it lowers cholesterol in some people.
That however, is where the positive benefits of alcohol stop. Alcohol does a lot more damage than it does good for society. To start off with the consequences of having too much to drink in public. Aggression increases after you have a few too many drinks, and there is the danger of vandalism – bot have been proven to happen a lot more when there is alcohol involved.
For the drinker personally, alcohol abuse can lead to even bigger problems. Not only does long term alcohol abuse lead to physical deterioration, but psychologically, alcohol abuse can lead to mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. It also has the effect on the people close to the person who abuses alcohol. Abuse of alcohol most certainly will lead to destruction of families, relationships and marriages.

How Do I Know I’m Addicted to Alcohol
There could be multiple indicators that you might have an alcohol addiction. Often, people associate an alcohol addiction with extreme binge drinking. However, it is more about the frequency. There are people who are mildly dependent, and their alcohol intake is not unhealthy when it comes to the amount per drinking session – the frequency is. There are people who struggle to grasp the idea of a day without a drink.
A mild Alcohol Addiction in this case, tends to be a psychological issue. The signs of a psychological dependence on alcohol, are;
- You think about having a drink throughout the day, even in the morning
- Mood swings and other mental health issues when you do not have a drink
- A lack of interest in events that do not include drink.
A specific test you can do is called the CAGE Questionnaire. This is a questionnaire where you ask yourself the following questions:
- Have you ever felt you should cut down on your drinking?
- Have people annoyed you by criticizing your drinking?
- Have you ever felt bad or guilty about your drinking?
- Have you ever had a drink first thing in the morning to steady your nerves or get rid of a hangover (eye-opener)?
Have you answered yes to more than one question? You might be addicted to alcohol, and we would advise you to give our Alcohol Rehab a call as soon as possible.

At Alcohol Rehab Cambridge , we have the resources and knowledge available to us to ensure you have the best possible rehab plan available to you to get rid of your alcohol addiction. We work with a process that is adjustable to you needs, wants and situation. However, the essence is the same: start with Alcohol Detox and move on to post-detox afterwards.
Alcohol Detox is the process of cleaning out your body from the alcohol. As withdrawal symptoms start to set in, you will need round the clock medical supervision to ease the struggle of withdrawal. Once you have completed your withdrawal, we move on to post-detox. Post-detox techniques include but are not limited to:
CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy): Finding the reason for your alcohol abuse and knowing what sets you off is such an important part of rehab. Getting to know your own way of thinking, and finding ways to change it to ensure you don’t fall for the same traps and never fall back in the negative and dangerous cycle of alcohol addiction – a excellent way to deal with your alcohol addiction.
Reiki: An ancient Japanese technique used for relaxing and improving your health. This could help those who drink out of stress or other comorbid mental health issues.
