Alcohol Rehab Cardiff
If you’re thinking to yourself “I need help with alcohol” you’re one of the many people living with alcohol dependence in Cardiff who has actually realised that there’s something wrong. Recognising that you have a problem is the first step on the road to recovery so the first thing you can do is seek out alcohol support groups in your local area.
For many, finding a strong support network is all they need to start a successful journey towards manageable alcohol withdrawal.
For others, more intensive support is needed. This is particularly true if their alcoholism has become acute and it’s affecting their relationships with family, friends and work colleagues.
Often, people ask their GP to support them with referrals to local alcohol rehab centres. Others prefer to handle everything themselves, doing their own research into nearby alcohol recovery centres by Googling questions like “alcohol rehab near me.”
Cassiobury Court is here to help clients in Cardiff by providing alcohol recovery treatment and alcohol recovery strategies that help them live happier, healthier lives free from addiction.
Our team of friendly, highly trained professionals here at our Cardiff rehabilitation centre are committed to your recovery from the moment you contact us. Call us in absolute confidence on (number) or complete the contact form below.
Do I need alcohol withdrawal treatment?
Many people find they can drink occasionally without it affecting their lives. However, alcohol is a problem if:
- You frequently drink during the day
- You regularly over-indulge on nights out
- You often drink alone
- You drink so much that you forget the things you have said or done
- You need alcohol to wind down after a long day or deal with stress
- You find it takes you longer to feel drunk than it used to (higher tolerance levels)
- Your weight or appetite have been affected by drinking
- You’re feeling depressed or anxious
Perhaps you have a feeling that you’re drinking more than you should be but the idea of giving up makes you feel anxious. This is a sign that you are in denial – a major part of alcohol dependence. If you know deep in your heart that you have a problem but you keep convincing yourself that everything is OK, it’s time to get help – now!
If this sounds like you, it could mean you have become physically dependent on alcohol and you need urgent support.
What is an alcohol rehabilitation program from our Cardiff clinic?
Alcohol rehabilitation involves a variety of treatments personalised to your specific needs. The aim is to stop you drinking excessive amounts of alcohol and start living your life free from addiction. The program is carried out at our Cardiff clinic by our highly trained team of experts.
Drinking too much alcohol affects your brain chemistry, meaning you can no longer reason or make informed decisions. Often, the brain tricks people into thinking they need to drink – this is why, if you go longer than usual without alcohol, you start to feel physically unwell.
What is an alcohol rehabilitation centre like in Cardiff?
Your time with us will start with a residential stay in our friendly, quiet clinic. Many people’s first question about this is “How long does alcohol rehabilitation take?”, so if you’re wondering, you will need to stay with us for 28 days.
During your 28 day stay with us, your body will undergo a series of changes as it detoxifies from alcohol. In the early days of alcohol detox you will experience physical symptoms that can be difficult to deal with – Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms or Delirium Tremens are serious medical conditions. For this reason, it is essential that you stay with us throughout the entire program and don’t attempt to go through it on your own at home.
However, the discomfort of the detox process far outweighs the feelings of wellbeing you will experience when you take back real control of your life.
Therapy and aftercare
While you are with us, we will work with you to understand the reasons you became addicted to alcohol. When you understand your relationship with drinking and the issues that led you to it, you will be able to make more positive choices in future.
At the end of the 28 days, you will feel better than you could imagine. However, that’s just the beginning.
Our aim is to equip you with the skills and confidence you need for lifelong control over alcohol. Many of non-judgemental, friendly team have had overcome their own battles with drinking in the past, meaning they are perfectly placed to help you win your own. We offer a huge range of ongoing treatments including one-to-one therapy, group work and holistic therapies.
Does alcohol rehab really work?
According to Public Health England’s latest statistics, 29% of people leave their courses before they complete the full program. However, the success rate among those who do complete is huge – over 85%. This demonstrates that if you are willing to commit to managing your addiction your chances of recovery are very high.
So yes, alcohol rehab really does work. But it’s not easy. You may find the first few days in particular overwhelming; you will be in a strange environment, with people you don’t know, with no alcohol. But if you are committed to making the change, our team here in Cardiff are here to help you every step of the way.
Does alcohol rehab affect custody and visitation rights?
There is little doubt that Social Services and courts look more favourably on those who are taking steps in managing their alcoholism than those who don’t. If you can show you are committed to permanent alcohol recovery, your custody and visitation rights are likely to be improved.
