Is alcohol rehab available on the NHS?

Residential alcohol rehab on the NHS does not exist. This level of funding from the NHS is extremely rare. If you are lucky enough to receive funding, you will have to complete a long and exhaustive process to see if you qualify for the treatment. To secure this level of funding could take several months and is only available in very severe cases. By the time it takes even to consider funding you could be in a much better place months later by going private. However, private treatment comes at a premium and is self-funded.

What happens in alcohol rehab? Step 1: Detox

The first stage of any alcohol rehab process is to withdraw the alcohol from the body. This is known as alcohol detox.

Our medical professionals will assess you. They will review your medical history and your alcohol consumption levels. The Health Professional will decide on the correct level of chlordiazepoxide (Librium) to prescribe during the alcohol withdrawal process.

How does alcohol detox work?

Once the Health Professional has completed the assessment, we will monitor and record all symptoms of alcohol withdrawal. This process will start as straight after admission. We record your withdrawal signs every 4 to 6 hours. The alcohol detox process lasts for 7 days.

Following the alcohol detox process, you will then proceed to the alcohol rehab process.

What to expect in alcohol rehab?

The alcohol rehab process is where you begin intense therapy sessions to find the underlying causes of your alcohol addiction.

By knowing what to expect before attending rehab, this can help to reduce any worries or concerns that you may have.

Our approach to rehab includes:

The globally renowned 12 Step Recovery Programme by Alcoholics Anonymous.

This 12 step model was designed for others to help one another with their problems. This is done through meetings in which other recovering addicts can share their experiences and support each other by maintaining abstinence.

The 12 step model gives people a framework to help them surrender their addiction, learn from their mistakes and create new positive patterns.

You will also discover Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

This is a personalised talking therapy that looks at changing negative thoughts, beliefs, attitudes and behaviours that stop alcohol recovery.

This technique is particularly useful when dealing with the symptoms of denial. During CBT you will learn how to create new and powerful associations to help overcome any old thought patterns.

How long does alcohol rehab take?

The time in alcohol rehab can vary from person to person. The minimum time someone spends in rehab is 21 days. However, depending on the history and severity of alcohol abuse some cases may time longer.
