Expert help for alcohol addiction in Woking, Surrey
Located in Woking, Surrey, and set within a beautiful Grade II Georgian manor house, we offer world class alcohol rehab in Surrey at our specialist addiction clinic.
If you find that you are regularly consuming excessive amounts of alcohol and need to drink more and more to feel ‘drunk’, this may indicate that you are struggling with an alcohol addiction. Also known as ‘alcoholism’ or ‘alcohol use disorder’, alcohol addiction is a serious condition that causes individuals to gradually become dependent on having an alcoholic drink in order to function effectively in their day-to-day life.
It’s important to understand that drinking occasionally can be harmless; it is when drinking becomes more frequent and the amount of alcohol consumed begins to gradually increase, that this can result in the development of a destructive addiction.
Addiction to alcohol can cause a range of devastating physical and psychological consequences, affecting all areas of an individual’s life, and often requires intensive, specialised treatment to overcome.
