Alcohol Rehab

Alcohol has been a part of our society for centuries, used as a mark of celebration for different occasions. However, that very same substance that induces joy can also drive people into alcohol rehab as it takes control of their lives. In fact, over 100,000 people are currently undergoing alcohol addiction treatment in England, and this number only seems to be rising.

On this page, we will look at the reasons why alcohol rehab is so essential to recovery, exploring the different treatment options that are available to help you remain alcohol-free.


The importance of alcohol rehab

Two of the most important aspects of alcohol rehabilitation are maintaining a healthy support system and receiving help from highly trained, experienced medical staff. At Primrose Lodge, we want to immerse you in a comfortable atmosphere whilst also providing top medical care, improving your odds of a successful recovery from alcohol addiction.

Our facility aims to provide the best possible accommodation, diet, exercise, medical help, and therapy to support a successful recovery. When asked, “what were the best parts of rehab?” one of our former clients stated:

“The best part is that there was a gym facility, food was lovely, your relationships with other people and the connections you make are very important. I’m still in touch with one other person.”

What are my options for alcohol rehab?

It is never too late to seek treatment for alcoholism and help is available should you decide it’s time to face your alcoholism head-on. There are several options available when it comes to alcohol rehab. You could attend a private alcohol rehab or spend time in a centre funded by the NHS. There are also support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous, which can help you stay sober even after alcoholism treatment.

The goal of alcohol rehabilitation is to teach you how to avoid triggers, providing you with all the tools you need to achieve long-lasting sobriety. Working with an experienced, qualified counsellor or therapist, either one-on-one or in a group (or a combination of both), helps in overcoming your alcoholism and maintaining sobriety in the long term, which is often trickier than it sounds.

Our rehabilitation process aims to identify the root causes of your alcoholism and help you overcome them. Types of therapy that are available include:


What to expect from alcohol rehab

How long your alcohol rehab will last is dependent on several factors, but the most common length of stay is 28-days. This allows ample time for the individual to adjust to their life free from addiction, resulting in spiritual healing along with not just physical but mental recovery. We also offer seven or fourteen-day rehab programmes. For those with more severe alcohol drinking issues, we run 60 and 90-day programmes.

Some of our specialist alcohol programmes include:

Alcohol rehab support groups

At Primrose Lodge, we recognise the 12-step programme as an incredibly beneficial tool for long-lasting recovery. By combining this treatment methodology with a variety of personalised addiction therapies, we aim to ensure that our clients leave us with all the knowledge they need to utilise the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) programme most effectively.

AA is a 12-step group. The fellowship focuses on personal recovery and continued sobriety, and memberships are open to anyone. AA meetings occur across the globe, making them a very powerful resource for recovery. The meetings offer a chance to discuss your experiences and share with others battling alcoholism.

How is it useful?

By sharing what has worked for you with others in a similar situation and listening to their experiences and advice, you will get the support you need to stay on the path to sobriety. Being paired with a sponsor is helpful to anybody battling addiction to alcohol. A sponsor is somebody you can call if you are craving alcohol or at risk of relapse. At Primrose Lodge, our qualified team of counsellors are skilled in delivering 12-step programmes, using it regularly as an effective approach for alcohol rehab for all of our clients.
