Alcohol rehab centres
We live in a culture that embraces alcohol as a normal part of everyday life. In the UK we drink with meals, drink when we are out, drink at home and at special events. This can make it difficult for someone to recognise addiction in themselves. It also makes it easy to conceal an alcohol addiction. Private Rehab Guide is here to provide support for those dependent on alcohol and guide them towards healthy coping mechanisms. The first step in successfully breaking addiction is to detox, and the second is to immerse yourself in the support of therapy. Both of these are available at our rehabilitation centres.
Why alcohol is addictive
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.
Someone who drinks large amounts of alcohol will eventually become accustomed to the experience, and will have to consume more each time in order to feel the same pleasurable effect. This is how addiction begins.
The purpose of detox
Alcohol detox centres like the ones we work with exist for one reason: to interrupt the drinking cycle by creating an alcohol-free space. When that cycle is interrupted, it forces withdrawal and stops the release of those pleasurable endorphins. For those with high levels of alcohol in the blood, medication will be offered to ease withdrawal symptoms and discomfort, until the body is free from harmful toxins.
The purpose of rehab
Addiction is not about the substance itself, but a coping mechanism of deeper issues which someone may be suppressing. These underlying issues are addressed in rehab. Our alcohol rehab centres provide a safe and supportive atmosphere in which clients can address their past when they ready, through a variety of therapy approaches and counselling.
