Alcohol addiction rehabilitation
Alcohol addiction, which is also commonly known as ‘alcoholism’ or ‘alcohol use disorder’, is a serious condition that is typified by an individual regularly consuming excessive amounts of alcohol. This repeated alcohol consumption eventually results in them becoming dependent on alcohol in order to function effectively in day-to-day life.
For lots of people, enjoying the occasional alcoholic drink can be a harmless pleasure. However, when drinking becomes more frequent and the amount of alcohol consumed begins to gradually increase, this can result in the development of a destructive addiction.
Alcohol addiction treatment in Surrey at Life Works
Alcohol rehab at Life Works is delivered as part of our residential Addiction Treatment Programme at our clinic in Woking. This usually lasts for 28 days, which is the recommended treatment time for alcohol addiction. However, we are also able to consider flexible treatment lengths, if appropriate. During your stay with us, you will have the opportunity to undergo an intensive alcohol detox if required, before commencing with comprehensive one-to-one, group and complementary therapy to help you to address your dysfunctional thoughts and behaviours, improve your self-esteem and self-awareness, and take steps towards a strong and sustainable recovery.
Life Works’ alcohol addiction treatment methods are centred around a holistic approach, where we help you to recognise the underlying behavioural mechanisms of your addiction to alcohol.

It is important to recognise that without expert support, it’s possible that your alcohol addiction will become worse over time and continue to have a destructive impact on multiple areas of your life. It may also lead to you developing other addictions on top of your alcohol misuse, including drug addiction and engaging in compulsive behaviours such as gambling and compulsive internet usage. This is why seeking expert help as early as possible is crucial, in order to overcome your alcohol addiction and resume the healthy, fulfilling, addiction-free life that you deserve.
