I think I need Alcohol Addiction Treatment, how can Life Works help me?

At Life Works our professionally qualified doctors and nurses will help you safely go through an alcohol detox to prepare you for recovery. Once through your alcohol detox, you can progress into our residential private alcohol rehabilitation programme. There, our world class specialist therapists will work with you in one-to-one and group sessions as well as providing a range of other treatment methods.

Our alcohol addiction treatment centre focuses on complete holistic care, where we help you recognise the underlying behavioural mechanisms of your addiction to alcohol. The holistic nature of our alcohol addiction treatment will focus on the physical, psychological and spiritual aspects of recovery. Life Works alcohol rehabilitation centre also addresses the role of the family and how valuable it is to recovery. In this way, we insure all our clients leave with the tools and support system they need to beat their alcohol addiction and remain sober for life. 

What can I do about my problem with alcohol?

  • Understand that while you may have decided to start drinking, you did not choose to become addicted to alcohol. When you are an alcoholic, your brain is not operating normally and your drinking can spiral out of control. We know that alcohol addiction is an illness, not a moral weakness or character flaw. As such, you need and deserve the same alcohol addiction treatment that anyone else with an illness would receive.
  • Find a treatment programme that examines the root of your problem drinking rather than just treating the signs of alcohol abuse. An effective programme will look at your symptoms but more importantly, it will examine and address the underlying factors that influence these behaviours. Alcoholism is not just about drinking – it is a life-threatening, psychiatric illness that is much more serious than just the drinking problem it produces.
  • Find an alcohol addiction treatment centre that screens for any other pre-existing mental health issues, behavioural health issues or mood disorders. For example, you may also be suffering from bulimia or anxiety. These issues often exist alongside a person’s alcohol dependence. If they are left untreated, they can mask the signs of alcoholism and impair the effectiveness of alcohol addiction treatment, so it’s essential that they are identified and addressed as part of your treatment programme.

How can I start Alcohol Rehabilitation at Life Works?

Once you arrive at Life Works, you will visit nursing for a health check speak with our doctor and meet your primary counsellor. This assures that you are physically and mentally prepared to start treatment or detox. Most of our alcohol clients start their treatment with a detox. This is done before most therapy starts because people going through a detox often feel ill and are not always in the right frame of mind to start rigorous counselling. Once the detox is finished, the client will join the other patients in counselling, therapies and at meal times. This helps build a sense of community and gives each client a support network beyond their treatment staff. If you are interested in learning more please get in contact. 

It all starts with a call to 0800 081 0700 or by filling out our contact form.
