How to Know if You or a Loved One Needs Rehab for Alcoholism?

Alcoholism is characterised by the inability to stop drinking alcohol, despite any negative consequences of doing so. It is a physical and emotional compulsion over which the user has little to no control. 

Alcoholism is caused by continuous heavy drinking over a long period. Over time, the body builds up a tolerance to substances like alcohol, until eventually, the brain becomes accustomed to its presence. Once consumption of alcohol is suddenly stopped, the brain tries to adjust its absence which triggers a reaction from the central nervous system, called alcohol withdrawal.

If you’re concerned about your drinking habits, or you suspect that someone you care about may have a drinking problem there are symptoms you should be looking out for. The physical and behavioural symptoms of alcoholism are the easiest to recognise, for example; excessive sweating, shaking, isolating, lying, etc.

If you are showing signs of drug or alcohol dependence and withdrawal symptoms, you should seek help as soon as possible to prevent the illness from progressing.

How to Help Someone With Alcoholism

The best course of treatment for alcoholism is private inpatient rehab, however, broaching the subject of addiction with someone you care about can be uncomfortable because most people suffering from alcoholism won’t admit they have a problem. 

If you’re having trouble getting through to your loved one, you could try staging an intervention. Whether you decide to sit down as a family or bring in a professional interventionist this may help convince the person to agree to treatment. While Castle Craig doesn’t offer intervention services, we can pass on the information of interventionists we have worked with.

If they aren’t open to inpatient or outpatient rehab, you may be able to encourage them to attend 12-step meetings such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.

A specialist medically supervised detox unit on-site, with a 24/7 medical centre. During detox, our medical staff aim to safely reduce any physical symptoms you may experience during alcohol withdrawal using the appropriate medication.

A welcoming and restful environment, with comfortable accommodations for all patients. There are both single or shared rooms, all with en-suite facilities, providing comfort and privacy.

Alcohol Detox

Detox is both mentally and physically challenging, which is why you must be in a safe, comfortable, and supportive environment. At Castle Craig, our separate medical detox facility allows you to focus on physical healing, to ensure you are ready to begin the psychological aspect of addiction recovery.

You can expect detox to last between 7-10 days, however, this timeframe is dependent on several factors, such as frequency and volume of alcohol consumption.

Medications are typically prescribed during detox to ease the symptoms of withdrawal.

Some of the most commonly prescribed include:

  • Chlordiazepoxide (Librium)
  • Valium (Diazepam)
  • Clonazepam (Klonopin) 
  • Lorazepam (Ativan) 

Inpatient vs Outpatient Alcohol Rehab

There are two main treatment paths available when it comes to drug and alcohol rehab: residential rehab – also referred to as inpatient rehab – and outpatient rehab.

Inpatient rehab requires you to stay at the clinic until the end of your treatment programme, while outpatient treatment means you only have to be on-site while attending therapy.

Benefits of Inpatient Alcohol TreatmentCons of Inpatient Alcohol Treatment
One of the main benefits of choosing inpatient rehab is that you will receive around-the-clock care and support during your stay.
Alcohol withdrawal can be especially taxing, however, if you have chosen to detox in a private rehab, then you will be given prescription drugs to help ease the symptoms of withdrawal, with a doctor on call 24/7 should you require any additional medical support.
Unfortunately, the cost of inpatient treatment is what often deters people from enquiring about private rehab.
However, clinics offer various funding options, from payment plans, to government funding.
Pros and Cons of Inpatient Alcohol Addiction Treatment
Benefits of Outpatient Alcohol RehabCons of Outpatient Alcohol Rehab
Choosing to attend addiction treatment on an outpatient basis costs less than opting for a residential stay.
It is also more flexible for people with childcare or work commitments. Outpatient rehab also allows you to put your new found recovery tools to the test.
One of the biggest concerns regarding outpatient addiction treatment is the possible exposure to outside influences, which could trigger a relapse.
Outpatient rehab also doesn’t involve around-the-clock care by medical professionals. Detox is not included in outpatient care, and should be done separately before beginning therapy.
