    What is Alcohol Addiction Counselling?

    Alcohol addiction counselling is a crucial component of the journey towards sobriety. It entails a therapeutic dialogue between the individual and a professionally trained alcohol addiction counsellor. This dialogue is aimed at identifying and exploring the underlying issues leading to addiction while providing strategies to manage and overcome these challenges.

    Our Alcohol Addiction Counselling Services are available to run as a standalone treatment or alongside any of our other treatments including Alcohol Detox, Alcohol Online Dayhab programme, as well as, Residential Alcohol Rehab, all tailored to your unique situation. Through these services, we aspire to guide you towards a healthier, addiction-free life. Infinity Addiction Solutions offers a confidential, compassionate and discreet approach to counselling, ensuring you have a safe space and are comfortable and secure in your path to recovery.

    Alcohol Counselling Process

    The alcohol counselling process at Infinity Addiction Solutions is rooted in understanding each individual’s unique circumstances. Initially, a comprehensive assessment is conducted to gauge the severity of alcohol dependency and understand the specific factors contributing to the addiction.

    Once the assessment is completed, the counsellor crafts a personalised treatment plan with goal setting, detailed action steps and approaches to be used to identify and address the psychological drivers that contribute to the addiction. Our counsellors can use a range of counselling approaches depending on the presentation of the individual, what approaches are recommended and approved as effective for treating each specific presenting factor, thus helping individuals replace harmful behaviours, process difficult emotions and past experiences, steering towards healthier coping mechanisms towards a healthier life. 

    Counselling Approaches 

    • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
    • Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT
    • Solution Focused Therapy 
    • Behavioural Therapy
    • Person-Centred Therapy
    • Integrative Psychotherapy 
    • Psychodynamic Psychotherapy 
    • Transactional Analysis (TA)
    • Emotional focused Therapy

    The alcohol recovery journey doesn’t end with Counselling therapy. Alcohol Aftercare support groups often come into play and are a great way of maintaining change. Aftercare is made available for free following the successful completion of all our counselling packages, providing continuous support and strategies for up to 6 months to help maintain the achieved sobriety, prevent relapse, and assist the individual in thriving in their new life.

    In many cases, an Alcohol detox may be required before Alcohol counselling can be implemented. This process involves a medically assisted procedure involving approved medication, ensuring the safe management of withdrawal symptoms whilst the body adjusts to the absence of alcohol without causing harm to the individual due to dangerous withdrawal symptoms.

    What Are the Main Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms?

    Experiencing withdrawal symptoms is a common occurrence when an individual with alcohol dependence stops drinking. The symptoms can range from mild to severe, depending on factors like the duration of alcohol use, quantity consumed, and overall health status.

    Mild withdrawal symptoms can include anxiety, tremors, nausea, vomiting, insomnia, and sweating. These often start within 6 to 12 hours after the last drink.

    More severe symptoms, such as hallucinations and seizures, can occur between 12 to 24 hours after stopping alcohol intake. In some cases, individuals may experience a condition known as delirium tremens, characterised by severe confusion, high body temperature, and hallucinations. This usually occurs 48 to 72 hours after the last drink and requires immediate medical attention.

    Remember, attempting alcohol detoxification without professional supervision can be dangerous. At Infinity Addiction Solutions, we ensure a safe and supportive detox process, managing these withdrawal symptoms effectively through either a short stay in one of our private residential clinics or when it’s safe to do so, through a detox in your own home

    Recognising Your Alcohol Addiction

    Recognising alcohol addiction is the first step towards seeking help. Understanding the signs of addiction is essential, which can often be challenging due to denial and rationalisation. Persistent cravings for alcohol, difficulties in controlling consumption, and neglecting personal and professional responsibilities are all warning signs.

    Physical indicators can include an increased tolerance to alcohol, experiencing withdrawal symptoms when not drinking, and continued use of alcohol despite adverse health impacts. Emotional signs might entail mood swings, depression, anxiety, or heightened irritability when unable to consume alcohol.

    Remember, alcohol addiction extends beyond physical dependence. It seeps into every facet of life, disrupting relationships, hampering productivity, affecting mental health, and influencing self-perception. The addiction can result in a cycle of guilt and drinking, further deepening dependency. It’s not merely the quantity, but the impact on your life and the inability to quit despite negative consequences that signify addiction.

    If you or a loved one display any of these signs, it’s crucial to take immediate action. Ignoring the problem often worsens the situation, making recovery more challenging. Seeking professional help from a reliable alcohol addiction counselling service is the first step towards a healthier, addiction-free life.
