Alcohol Rehab Manchester
What Are the Health Effects of Alcohol?
Most of us are aware of the detrimental health effects alcohol has on our body and mind, but do you know the extent of the damage? Here are just some of the severe health effects alcoholism has on your body:
- Inflammation of the pancreas which can cause serious health complications
- Liver disease which leads to toxin waste around your body
- A risk of hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar levels)
- Permanent brain damage from a severe impact on the central nervous system
- Damage to the digestive system which discourages your intestines from absorbing essentials vitamins and nutrients
- Circulation issues including: high blood pressure, stroke, irregular heartbeat and even heart disease
What is Alcohol Rehab?
There are many alcohol treatment options for alcoholism, and the most effective form is rehab. This is an opportunity to engage with medically-trained staff to become abstinent. Alcohol rehab includes many treatment stages to aid your recovery, such as therapy and detox. At Rehab Clinics Group, we cater to your needs and personal experiences to help you seek sobriety in the long term.
We have an array of rehab clinics around the UK, and one in Spain, which all have trained staff to create strategies to support you during the rehabilitation process and encourage a healthier you. We’ll educate you about alcohol, so you can learn what drinking alcohol does to your body and mind. By understanding more about the impacts of alcohol on your mental health, you’re more likely to succeed in sobriety. Understanding the cause of your addiction can help you to beat this addiction, all the while having supportive staff by your side during the difficult times.
Our alcohol rehab clinics don’t just focus on alcohol, but help you to develop personal traits. For example, our therapy sessions help to focus on the aspects of your life and yourself that you feel positive about. Our rehab clinics certainly aren’t a place to dread, as you’ll have the opportunity to feel better about yourself through our additional services. These include: hairdressing and beauty sessions, personal training sessions, podiatry visits, and more.
What Our Alcohol Rehab Programme Looks Like
Once you arrive at your chosen rehab centre, we’ll perform a physical and psychological examination. This helps us to create a personalised programme for you. Before you walk through the door, we don’t have treatment services planned for you, because we understand that everyone requires a different level of support which is unique to them. Our team of expert staff will prescribe drugs with a dosage specific to you to help with withdrawal symptoms.
Our team of expert staff are available 24 hours a day for support or just a chat, anytime you need them. Our residential rehab clinics are filled with supportive and educated individuals who want to help make you a healthier and happier version of yourself. With specialised care, support and therapy, we use our years of knowledge to provide addiction treatment with lasts for the rest of your life. We appreciate that alcohol abuse can drastically impact your mental health, fitness and health. Throughout your experience with us, we’ll tailor your treatment plan to monitor all areas so you can leave the clinic feeling ready to conquer the world.
Detox is another important stage in recovery, and should only be carried out by medical staff. This removes traces of alcohol from your body, so you can begin treatment in a healthy body. By flushing alcohol out of your system, you’ll likely encounter withdrawal symptoms after one or two weeks of detoxing. Our team of expert staff will prescribe you appropriate drugs to help relieve these withdrawal symptoms so you can continue to the next stage of recovery.
If you’re based in the North West, we have many UK clinics to help with alcohol rehab. For example, Cassiobury Court in Watford isn’t too far to travel. This is more beneficial than a rehab in Manchester because you get the chance to grow outside of your comfort zone – which is what drug rehabilitation is all about. Cassiobury Court offers premier accommodation to beat your addiction. With a mixture of group and individual therapy sessions, this helps you to return to Manchester drug and alcohol free. This is just one of our three rehab clinics, and we’re looking into developing new accommodations in the UK to provide even more rehab options.
Is Therapy Important in Beating Alcohol Addiction?
Our treatment programme is excellent in beating your alcohol addiction, but this alone isn’t enough to completely recover. Therapy helps you to overcome any struggles and triggers which contribute to your alcoholism. Therapy can provide an impactful difference along with additional treatment services. With this in mind, we combine group and individual sessions with everyone who enters our rehab clinics. With specialists by your side, you’ll receive excellent care and attention to create a positive mindset surrounding alcohol. Our expert team of therapists will help you develop healthy habits so you can say no to alcohol for all the right reasons, and not just because you feel pressurised.
A qualified psychologist will sit with you to focus on your mental state and get to the core of your alcoholism. Everyone has a unique background and different reason for alcoholism, which is why one-to-one sessions work effectively amongst group therapy. By regularly meeting with a psychologist, you’ll develop a healthy and trusting relationship where they’ll monitor your progress and help you in-between sessions if you’re having a difficult battle.
You’ll also contribute to group therapy sessions with around 5-10 people attending them. This is another opportunity to know that you’re not alone, and other people are going through the same thing as you. You and others will get the chance to open up about your personal experiences. Group therapy has been proven an effective method in beating behavioural addictions because your peers can motivate and support you. Everyone in the room has the same goal as you, and it’s beneficial to hear the same addiction from another person’s point of view.
