Millions of people in the UK consume alcohol every day. For some, drinking is a routine part of life they cannot seem to do without. They have to have that drink after work, or perhaps they feel compelled to go down to the pub and drink with friends for several hours. Many of them are alcohol abusers bordering on full-blown alcoholism. These are the kinds of people who would benefit most from our alcohol abuse helpline.
How about you? Are you visiting our website because you are concerned about your drinking habits? If so, we can help. We can also assist you if you are looking for information to help a friend or a loved one. All you need to do is contact us on our 24-hour helpline.
The services we provide are absolutely free to clients. We do not charge anything, knowing that the most important thing is that you get the help you need. Please know that our services are also completely confidential too. No one will ever know you contacted us unless you make the choice to say something yourself.
If you are concerned about yourself or a loved one, here are five important reasons you should contact our helpline right away:
Overcoming an alcohol abuse problem is entirely possible with the right kind of treatment and support. The thing to understand is that there are a lot of options out there. The only way to identify the right treatment for you is to first know how serious your problem is.
Calling our helpline will instantly put you in contact with a trained counsellor who has the knowledge, experience, and compassion to figure out where you are with alcohol. After providing a step-by-step assessment, our counsellor will then offer you a list of treatment options that fit well with your current circumstances.
As you are a unique individual, you deserve every opportunity to avail yourself of a treatment plan specifically designed around your life circumstances, your history, your overall health, and more. That means you need as many choices as possible. Our status as a devoted referral organisation makes that possible.
Our experience allows us to work with dozens of private clinics, counsellors, support groups and other service providers throughout the UK. Rather than being limited to just a small handful of clinics, we can offer you a full compendium of treatment options that give you the most choices possible.
It is relatively common for individuals with alcohol problems to avoid asking for help because they fear others are judging them. Well, we want you to rest assured that there will be no judgements here. That’s not our job, nor do we even want to do so.
Our number one goal is to help you get the treatment you need to overcome alcohol. We are not here to lecture you over the phone; we are not here to accuse you or try to make you feel like a bad person. We are here to help you take the first few steps on your personal road to recovery.
When you call our alcohol abuse helpline, you will not be giving up control of your life or your decisions. In other words, you will ultimately decide your own course of action. No one in our organisation will ever attempt to compel you to do something you do not want to do. If you are not ready to start treatment, that is your decision to make.
We adhere to this policy because we know that people forced into treatment against their will are significantly less likely to succeed in long-term recovery. Your chances of getting well are far better if you embrace treatment of your own free will, and give it your best effort from start to finish. We will help you understand this, of course, but we will never force you to make any kind of decision.
Please understand that everyone within our organisation is on your side. We are not content to see you continuing to struggle with alcohol, which is why we are also not content to offer our clients a one-size-fits-all solution that involves asking the doctor for a prescription and going to occasional AA meetings.
We have worked with enough clients to know that overcoming alcohol is extremely challenging. There is no simple solution. There is no magic wand that can be waved to immediately eliminate all the problems alcohol is causing in a person’s life. Therefore, we approach alcohol treatment seriously. We believe that this is the kind of approach you need.
The latest government estimates relating to alcohol abuse and addiction suggest that there are millions of UK adults struggling with alcohol right now. How many more children are also having problems? From our point of view, just one person struggling with alcohol is one person too many.
Our alcohol abuse helpline, as well as our entire organisation, exists for the sole purpose of helping alcohol abusers and their families overcome their problems. To that end, we can also offer support and advice to family members living with alcoholics. You don’t have to be a drinker yourself to benefit from the services we provide.
We urge you to call our 24-hour helpline right now if you or a family member are battling alcohol abuse. Calling and speaking to one of our counsellors is the first step on that road to recovery. We will help you understand how serious your problem is, provide you with a list of treatment options to choose from, and even help arrange treatment on your behalf if you require such assistance. Whatever you do, don’t ignore alcohol abuse. Ignoring your problem will only make it worse.
