Symptoms Of Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol addiction is a mental illness. Its primary symptom is the use of alcohol despite negative effects caused by said alcohol. In other words, drinking despite the fact that it is hurting you in some way. Other symptoms include feeling like you need a drink to make it through the day, avoiding responsibilities and using drinking as a means to escape negative feelings. People with an alcohol addiction may also push away family and friends which leaves them feeling isolated and alone. This can make it harder to get help and oftne even causes the alcoholic to drink more. If you would like to learn more about the symptoms of alcohol addiction you can learn more at our symptoms page. If you would like alcohol addiction treatment you can contact Life Works online or call us at 0800 081 0700

What can I do about my problem with alcohol?

  • No one chooses to become addicted to alcohol. It is not a moral failing or a lack of willpower. Alcohol affects the brain and when alcoholics drink, they can lose control. Alcohol addiction is an illness that needs treatment not judgement. It is just as serious as any physical illness.
  • The best treatment program will examine the root of alcohol addiction. It will go beyond the symptoms to look at the underlying cause. Remember, alcoholism is more than just drinking, it is a sign of a deeper issue that must be addressed before recovery can begin. The sooner this issue is treated the better because alcohol abuse can cause serious physical and psychological damage or even death.
  • Find an alcohol addiction treatment that looks for other pre-existing or co-occurring conditions. These include depression, anorexia, bulimia, behavioural health issues, mood disorders or other mental health issues. Often times alcohol addiction can be caused by another disorder or is linked to another problem. If a treatment does not address both problems it is unlikely to be successful. Once a treatment can focus on the entire problem recovery becomes far more likely.

How can I start Alcohol Rehabilitation at Life Works?

Starting alcohol addiction treatment at Life Works is easy. The first step is calling our enquiries team. They can answer all your questions and help us learn more about your alcohol problem. Our enquiries team can then book you in for an assessment to ensure Life Works can offer you the right treatment. The assessment gives potential clients a chance to see our facility and speak with our enquiries handler about any concerns they may have. Once the assessment is complete, Life Works can admit you. This can often happen on the same day so people can access treatment quickly.

Once you admit, you will either start your detox in a private room or begin primary treatment. Detox is required if you are likely to experience withdrawal symptoms or negative effects when you stop drinking. The point is to provide a safe comfortable place that offers medical assistance if necessary. Someone who is experiencing the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal is not going to be able to take part in our intensive therapy. Once a client has all the alcohol out of their system and, if necessary, undergone detox, they will join the rest of our clients for daily therapy sessions and a whole host of other treatments.

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