How to Get Help for Alcohol Addictions
As you read this, you may be in a desperate situation. You may be addicted to alcohol to such an extent that you do not really believe life is worth living without drinking. Alcohol Rehabs wants you to know that life is worth living. Moreover, you can live alcohol free if you are willing to seek treatment for your addiction.
The first thing you need to know is that you are not alone. Statistics suggest that as many as 1 in every 20 adults show some signs of alcohol addiction. However, all over the UK people are finding help through private rehab clinics and outpatient programs. This same help is available to you as well.
Here are five steps that will enable you to break your addiction and live alcohol free:
Step #1 -Admit You Need Help
The first step in getting help for alcohol addiction is to admit that you have an unhealthy relationship with alcohol. If you drink first thing in the morning more often than not, plan your entire day around alcohol consumption, and constantly worry about where your next drink is coming from, you need to take this step. You are addicted to alcohol.
Only when you’re willing to admit you need support are you ready to do something about it. Nevertheless, as long as you continue to live in denial there is nothing anyone can do for you.
Step #2 – Decide to Seek Help
Perhaps you are reading this website because you have already admitted you’re an alcoholic. The next step is to decide, once and for all, you are going to get the help you need. Just like admitting your addiction is necessary, you cannot be helped unless you are willing to avail yourself of it. No one can force you to break your addiction.
Step #3 – Call Alcohol Rehabs
Alcohol Rehabs is a referral specialist with an extensive list of rehab clinics and outpatient programs from which to choose. You may not know where to find help, but we do. We are willing to assist you in any way we can by providing free and confidential advice and referrals. If necessary, we will even help you arrange for admission to a program.
Step #4 – Check into Your Program
The prospect of change, even positive change, can be daunting. For this reason, some people call us for help but then never show up to their residential treatment clinics or outpatient programs. No one can force you to check yourself in; you must make that decision on your own. However, we urge you to stick to your appointments and use our rehab support, which you can leave at any point. As long as you are willing to take advantage of the program we help you gain admission to, you will be well on your way to complete recovery.
Step #5 – Complete Your Treatment
Finally, getting help will only be successful in the long term if you actually complete the program you have been admitted to. If it’s a 12 step residential program offered by one of the clinics we work with, completion can take anywhere from six to 12 weeks. That’s followed by several months of aftercare to help you avoid relapse.
