How can you help a loved one overcome Drug and Alcohol abuse?

Perhaps you’re reading this for advice on how to help a loved one achieve their long-term recovery from drug and alcohol abuse.

It’s possible for anyone to develop an addiction to alcohol or drugs, no matter what stage they’re at in their life or what their background is, addiction doesn’t discriminate.

It’s important not to judge people for developing an addiction but offer them support and guidance in any way that we can so that they can turn their lives around for the better.

It’s truly awful to watch someone you care about go through the struggle of dealing with addiction, but there is a way for you to help them.

Here at Addiction Advocates, our rehab in Rhyl offers a family and friend referral service in addition to a family intervention service.

Looking in from the outside, it can be very difficult for us to really understand the severity of someone else’s addiction or to comprehend what they’re going through.

It’s also challenging to accept that your loved one might not even believe that they have a problem which needs addressing. It’s very common for people suffering from drug and alcohol abuse to be in denial about their condition.

This is why they need a loved one to act on their behalf and use our family and friend referral service to ensure they receive the essential care that they urgently need.

Our intervention process usually works by connecting 5-8 close friends or family who share concerns about a loved one’s drug and alcohol abuse.

With the added benefit of an expert mediator who remains in a neutral position, this method can help to gently encourage the loved one to see that they’re affecting not only themselves, but those around them.

The aim is to influence an admittance into our drug and alcohol rehab and help your loved one leave addiction behind for good.

We have a high success rate for family and friend interventions, however the long-term success, of course, lies with your loved one’s commitment and willingness to undergo drug and alcohol treatment at our rehab in Rhyl.


What are the benefits of residential addiction treatment?

Whilst there are drug and alcohol services which offer outpatient treatment, we strongly believe, and studies have shown, that the most effective way to overcome drug and alcohol abuse is to undergo treatment at a residential rehabilitation centre.

This is generally because many people find it difficult to fully commit to their addiction treatment whilst they remain in their home environment.

Your familiar home environment is likely to present negative influences or temptations to abuse drugs or alcohol, whereas our residential rehab in Rhyl is completely free from any distractions, giving you the opportunity to solely focus on your long-term recovery.

Joining a residential rehab for drug and alcohol treatment will certainly give you the greatest chance of success. It may also give your friends and family some much needed relief to know that you’re being supported and cared for 24/7 by an expert team of addiction specialists.

All of our clients will receive a unique treatment programme, personalised to suit your specific needs.

This gives you a huge advantage over outpatient treatment or treatment with free local health services who would provide you with a generic programme to follow which has a very low success rate.

We take the time to get to know you and understand your condition which enables us to create such a bespoke addiction treatment programme for you.


What is our Rehabilitation Centre like?

Of course, we understand the devastating impact which drug and alcohol abuse can have on people’s lives, both physically and psychologically. We address both the physical and psychological connection to substance abuse in order to fully break the link.

We achieve this by utilising a number of evidence-based therapies, all of which have proven to be highly effective when treating an addiction to alcohol or drugs.

We’ll recommend that most people undergo a drug or alcohol detox during the early stages of their treatment as it’s the most efficient way to remove the harmful toxins from your body so that you can begin to cleanse.

Whilst a drug or alcohol detox is widely recommended and relatively straight forward, it isn’t without its risks. As drug or alcohol withdrawal begins, withdrawal symptoms will also begin to present themselves.

These can range from mild sickness or headaches to more severe symptoms such as insomnia or seizures. It’s for this reason why we strongly advise against any attempts to detox which aren’t professionally supervised at a detox clinic.

It’s possible that you’ll require immediate medical attention for any serious withdrawal symptoms.

Our exceptional team of addiction specialists also deliver cognitive behavioural therapy, also known as CBT, stress management, drug and alcohol relapse prevention, individual, group or family counselling, in addition to our well-being focused therapies such as art therapy, fitness therapy, mindfulness, yoga, relaxation and sleep management, low level laser therapy, and nutritional therapy.

A carefully selected combination of these therapies will offer you the greatest opportunity to achieve your long-term recovery from drug and alcohol abuse.
