 What to Expect at an Alcoholism Centre – Part 1

There are so many representations in the media depicting life in an alcoholism centre. Books, films, television series, magazines, documentaries, the list goes on.

In reality, nothing can represent the experience of life in an alcohol rehab, because the experience is different for everyone. It is a time of tremendous challenges, yet also incredible growth on mental, physical, emotional and spiritual levels.

The programme at different alcoholism centres can be quite similar, depending on the type of therapy model used. The most effective model has been found to be the Minnesota Model, based on the 12 Steps of recovery, founded by Alcoholics Anonymous.

A quality alcohol detox

When entering rehabilitation for alcoholism, depending on the stage and severity of the disease, a quality alcohol detox may be needed. By use of the word ‘quality’, we refer to registered and professional services.

It is of extreme importance as withdrawal from alcohol can be dangerous. An alcoholic who has been drinking over extended periods of time will find their bodies have become physically dependent on alcohol to function.

Upon cessation of drinking, an alcoholic will experience withdrawal symptoms of varying degrees, depending on how severe their drinking was. Alcohol detox is a serious and potentially dangerous experience for the human body, and thus any withdrawals from alcohol need to be monitored closely, and often medicated to ease the symptoms.  

Most alcoholism centres will offer an alcohol detox programme, and after completion it is highly recommended that the client continue with in-patient treatment at the centre.

So what can you expect from an alcoholism rehab centre?

Firstly, let’s discuss the environment of an alcohol rehab. All treatment centres are a place of recovery. They are a safe place for sick people to heal.

When a person suffers from alcoholism, they are not ‘weak’ or suffering from a moral failing. They are ill. They have a disease that is incurable, progressive and sometimes fatal. However, there is hope for recovery and a life free from the compulsion to drink. That hope lies in the recovery programmes offered in alcoholism treatment centres and rehabs.

There are rules that exist in treatment centres; for the good of the clients and the centre. This is not to say that an alcoholism centre is like a school, and punishment served for breaking rules. Instead, the rules exist to allow the therapy process to work to the best of its ability.

Structure, routine and stability are an important part of beginning life as a recovering alcoholic. Previously, life was unpredictable, chaotic and without responsibility; in recovery, an alcoholic needs to begin to learn the importance of taking responsibility for their lives.

One example of a ridiculous rule currently in place at some alcoholism rehabs in the UK requires that new admissions to the centre must be at least 48 hours sober before they can enter the facility!

One of the defining criteria of active alcoholism is loss of control – that I cannot stop drinking. If I had the ability to stop drinking for 2 days I wouldn’t need to book into an alcoholism rehab clinic! People addicted to alcohol in the UK are being told that before they can access alcoholism in-patient rehab they must first detoxify in hospital. With waiting lists being what they are and the stigma associated with alcoholism this is not always easy.

Due to many alcoholics requiring an alcohol detoxification when they enter a rehab facility, having the in-house ability to detoxify then move patients into the addictions counselling side of the programme more full time is best practice.

We often find alcoholics able to benefit from half days of therapy or more whilst they go through the detoxification. Some alcoholics are able to engage in the full programme from their first day of admission with the help of some medication.

In part 2, found here, we’ll talk about the day to day programme, and the therapy offered in rehabilitation centres.
