Linwood Group Research Suggests 3 Questions Everyone Should Ask When Choosing an Alcoholic Residential Centre

Linwood Group reveals the 3 most common and important questions to ask when choosing an alcohol rehab centre.

London, UK (PRWEB) June 17, 2009 -- Linwood Group announce that there is no doubt that a stay in an alcoholic residential centre can make a major difference in getting someone who is struggling with drink on the road to recovery. Having treatment in a residential rehab centre offers the chance to address the issue in privacy, away from temptation and in the care of professionals trained in providing counselling, therapy and support.

"Time away from the usual routines at home or familiar drinking partners will make a big different when getting sober," says Sue Allchurch, research director at the Linwood Group. "We give our clients the chance to rediscover their old selves, the people they were before alcohol took its toll, and to break the well-worn habits and behaviour patterns that have led to their problems."

But going into an alcoholic residential centre is a big step, she adds, so it's not surprising that prospective clients have questions to ask before taking that decision.

1. Does it work?

Much depends on the client themselves. Successful rehabilitation depends to a very large extent on how committed the patient is to recovery and the effort they put in to achieving that goal. Trained specialists at the rehab centre can do much to enable a problem drinker to re-establish emotional, mental and physical well-being within a relatively short space of time - but only with their co-operation. And once the client has left residential rehab, it will be up to them to use the new tools and behaviours they have learned there in order to remain in recovery.

2. How does it work?

First, clients undergo a medically supervised period of detoxification, during which they will be prescribed drugs to help them deal with withdrawal symptoms. Once the alcohol has been cleaned from their systems, the daily regime of counselling and therapy - on both a group and one-to-one basis - can start. In many cases, the centre will aim to involve the client's family so that everyone caught up in the problem can begin the healing process. During this time, the client will also learn how to stay sober once they leave the residential centre.

3. Is it expensive?

Residential rehab help isn't only for the wealthy. Linwood Group was founded on the principle that affordable residential alcohol help needn't mean any compromise in quality and prices its service at a level that cannot be found on a like-for-like basis anywhere in England. And if residential help is what it takes to avoid being one of the 33,000 people in the UK who die each year from alcohol-related accidents or illness, it may be a small price to pay.
