Treating Alcohol Abuse
When treating alcohol abuse, as with all addicts, we must remember that alcoholics are all individuals, they are all at different stages in their process and some need more pushing than others. They must also be at a stage where they are ready and willing to accept the help offered as this is the main factor in a long and happy recovery. The intensity of treatment depends upon a number of factors, a big one being the length of time the individual has been drinking for and the amounts consumed. Alcoholism can be a slow burner and develop over a number of years, even decades, it can take an individual a long period of time to accept the addiction. For this reason, alcohol abuse treatments are most effective when done in specialist alcohol treatment centres where they can detox safely and work through any unresolved issues that could take them back to drinking. It can also be a lengthy and costly process so that’s why at Cape Recovery, we handpick the best quality treatment centres for your budget so any money spent will be money well spent. We have a number of Alcohol Treatment Centres who we have chosen to work with. Find out more about the process by checking out a message form our Admissions Director.

How does Alcohol Rehab work, Alcohol Detox?
Addiction to alcohol can be one of the most dangerous substances to detox from and should not be attempted alone without medical supervision. This is particularly relevant for cases where the individual is drinking a large amount and/or has been drinking for a long period of time. The nature of alcoholics is that they have often developed their addiction over a long period of time and alcoholics can be particularly set in their ways and hard to break down in terms of denial and excuses for their drinking. All of our alcohol treatment centres have designated detox units which are staffed by a trained medical team to ensure the safest and most comfortable detox experience possible. After the detox period, it is advised that a client spends at least a month in treatment, ideally three months. We work with a number of sober living houses and aftercare treatments to enable a comfortable and effective return home or to ‘normal’ life. We also work with a variety of home detox, life coaching and outpatient options so check that out if the person simply cannot afford the time in rehab, I would always advise rehab as the most effective and highest chance of continued sobriety however. We can also advise on AA meetings and support groups to help maintain sobriety, just ask.
