How to get help for alcohol addiction (yourself)

The fact that you are reading this page is an indication that you’re ready to get help for your alcohol addiction. Even if you don’t think you are, just reading this information could be the first step in helping you gain victory over alcohol. It all begins with acknowledging you have a problem and then doing something about it.

Alcohol Help is an organisation that exists solely to assist individuals like you looking to recover from alcohol addiction. We want you to know that we care about you and your family. We are here because we know living an alcohol-free life is possible. We want to help you get there.

Admit Your Addiction

Before anyone can help you, you must first take responsibility for your actions. You must admit you have a problem that needs to be solved. If you continue to live in denial, you will continue to drink until the unthinkable happens. That’s not what you want, is it?

Seriously consider the following symptoms. If you exhibit any of them, there is a strong likelihood you are addicted:

  • a compulsive need to drink
  • needing a drink first thing in the morning
  • lying to others about your drinking habits
  • planning your activities around alcohol consumption.

There are other symptoms of alcoholism, but these first four are the starting point. If you are exhibiting any of them, please do not continue living in a state of denial. Contact us to start getting your life on track. Besides, if it turns out you are not addicted to alcohol then you’ve lost nothing by calling us.

Residential Treatment

When you call Alcohol Help, we will match you up with a residential program suitable for your needs. Then it’s your responsibility to admit yourself to the program, follow through, and seek appropriate aftercare once it’s complete. We can give you all the details when you call.

Addiction Help believes a residential treatment program at a private rehab clinic is the best option. If there’s no way you can afford it, and getting financial assistance elsewhere is not possible, the NHS does offer some free services. However, understand the NHS is not equipped for this sort of thing. A private rehab clinic gives you a much greater chance of success.

Ask Friends and Family

If you do not think you’re capable of getting in touch with us and enrolling yourself in a residential treatment program, then ask family members or a friend to help you. Believe us when we say they are suffering from your alcohol addiction right along with you. If you ask for help in finding a program, family and friends will likely be more than happy to oblige.

The important thing is that you get in touch with Alcohol Help today. With every passing day you do not get the help you need, you fall deeper into the abyss of alcoholism. The sooner you get in touch with us, the sooner you’ll rise out of that abyss.
