Alcohol Detox Centres
In the modern day, drinking alcohol is a total normality. In the UK we drink with meals, drink when we are out, drink at home, at special events and we are infamous for binge drinking. However thankfully it is only the minority that develop alcohol dependency. This minority need our help, understanding and support in their hour of need, that is why Private Rehab Helper are here to provide this.
Private Rehab Helper knows that the rate of alcohol addiction in the UK is more serious than it may seem. Despite alcohol dependency rates declining slightly over time, we know that a lot of addicts out there are unaware they even have a problem. This can lead to serious health problems, not to mention the strain on them keeping a job down and relationships with family and friends. Private Rehab Helper are here to combat this with professional and affordable private rehab and detox.
Why Alcohol Is Addicting
According to WebMD, a number of recent studies have looked at the effect of alcohol on the brain in order to determine what makes alcohol so addicting. What these studies have revealed is interesting. Researchers have discovered that alcohol consumption causes the brain to release what are known as endorphins. These endorphins are natural opioids that cause feelings of pleasure.
In addition, researchers discovered that heavy drinkers experience a significantly greater endorphin release than light drinkers. As a drinker increases his or her alcohol consumption, the release of the opioids increases as well. The data suggests a vicious cycle of more alcohol, more endorphins, and the resulting addiction.
The Purpose of Detox
Alcohol detox centres like the ones we work with exist for one reason: to interrupt the drinking cycle by completely separating the abuser from alcohol. When that cycle is interrupted, it forces withdrawal and an immediate stop to the release of those pleasurable endorphins. While detox may not be pretty, it is successful in the short term.
When the alcohol abuser has no underlying physical or emotional issues that contribute to his or her drinking, detox is often all that’s needed for long-term success. On the other hand, if there are underlying issues then they may need to be dealt with through rehab. Our alcohol detox centres can provide the proper evaluation and counselling necessary to make that determination.
