How to Get Help for Alcohol Addiction

The fact that you are reading this page suggests you might be a person who has an alcohol addiction problem but is ready to change. That’s great. The first step is to admit you have a problem and be willing to do something about it.

If that sounds like you, we want to encourage you to continue reading. Private Rehab Helper is here to help you overcome alcohol so that you can lead a normal, productive, and happy life. All of the information you will find below should be useful in your quest to be alcohol-free.

Types of Help Available

When an alcohol addict is ready to get help, he or she usually has three options from which to choose: family and friends only, free services from the NHS, and private rehab treatment from a dedicated rehab centre. We believe the third option is the best if at all possible.

Above and beyond who provides the help, there are different types of services available to alcoholics:

  • Outpatient Programs – Also known as ‘day programs’ in some cases, an outpatient program is one in which the addict visits a couple of days per week, a few hours at a time. At the end of each session he/she goes home as normal. Day programs do see some measure of success, but it tends to be limited.
  • Residential Programs – A residential program is one in which the alcoholic will physically live at the treatment centre for a prescribed amount of time. Typically that is anywhere from four to eight weeks. The advantage of the residential program is that it allows the addict to be completely separated from his/her normal surroundings.
  • Individual Counselling – There are times when neither an outpatient nor a residential program is appropriate. In such cases, the alcoholic might be recommended to one-on-one or group counselling sessions. The counselling is designed to uncover the underlying issues that encourage the addict to drink.

Contact Private Rehab Helper

Now that you are familiar with the types of help available, what is the next step? It is to contact us or another similar organisation.

Private Rehab Helper is in the business of helping alcohol abusers break their addictions and regain control of their lives. All you need do to get us working on your behalf is to contact us at your earliest convenience. Through our initial, over-the-phone consultation, we will help you decide your best course of action.

If you have neither private health insurance nor any other way to pay for private rehab, your next best option would be to take advantage of the free day programs offered by the NHS. While these programs may be limited in what they can offer, they will be effective for the addict who truly wants to quit.

Follow Through

Lastly, knowing your treatment options and asking for help will not do you much good if you are not willing to follow through on your decision to stop drinking. An alcohol free life is wholly dependent on your willingness to co-operate. If you follow through on your commitment to quit, you are a lot less likely to relapse in the future.

You might find it helps to ask family members and friends to hold you accountable. Their job would be to make sure you get to your treatment program, make sure you complete the treatment, and hold you to your promise should you ever show any signs of returning to alcohol consumption.

Finding help for alcohol addiction is as easy as calling us at Private Rehab Helper. We are here to assist you if you are ready to make a change. Make that change today.
