For many this can be an incredibly daunting step as alcohol or drugs will have been a support system for a long time.

Sometimes it can take a little persuasion to help people realise that their use of alcohol or drug taking has gone a too far. Our therapists will help both families and clients with this. We work with an inspirational and motivational model, we encourage and support our clients, every step of the way, through this emotional and physical time. All of our clinics have structured counselling sessions to address the psychological aspects of alcohol or drug withdrawal at the same time as the physiological aspects. Help and support is only a phone call away.

In order to get an idea about how long you would need to stay and the duration of your detox we complete a FREE DRUG AND ALCOHOL ASSESSMENT to establish your needs. This can be done in person at any one of our UK clinics or over the phone in the comfort of your own home.

Drink and Drugs – Welcome to the ADUS Counselling Service. Through our network of affiliate counselors and psychotherapists we are able to provide local, professional, affordable counselling to clients throughout the UK.

People seek counselling for a wide range of difficulties. Counselling at ADUS Healthcare gives you an opportunity to explore any problems and issues you may have in a confidential setting with a professionally trained counsellor who will listen and help you explore and understand your feelings.

Counselling is a form of psychological or verbal therapy that can offer people of all ages a chance to talk about their troubles and difficulties and then change how they feel and behave.

Our therapists are all ‘solution focused’.  This means that therapy will not normally be open ended, but rather with a focus on identifying your problems and helping you address then in the best possible way.   In order to do this they ustilise widely accepted models and approaches. These provide a beneficial and rewarding opportunity to move forward and regain control of your life

Talking to somebody with an addiction

Drink and drugs – Talking to, or confronting, a friend or loved one about their addiction can be difficult and emotional for both parties. Listed below are some simple steps to follow that will make it easier to confront someone and help them address their destructive behaviour.

The key initial step is to talk to him or her like you would talk to anyone else – say what you mean, and mean what you say. Manipulation is one of the key tools an addict or alcoholic will use in order to hide their addiction and control those around them. Therefore don’t be manipulated.

Confronting and talking

Drink and drugs – Any time that you casually approach an addict or talk with them about their substance misuse or the possibility of getting help is an example of an ‘informal intervention’.

This might not sound like a very useful when compared to a more formal intervention by a drugs worker or counsellor, but nonetheless it can be very effective in helping the addict take the first steps to recovery.

It is the experience of many recovered addicts that they finally decided to ask help after a conversation with a family member or close friend.  The reason for this is because timing was everything and prior to this they simply had not been ready to make a change. But a key conversation helped them increase their motivation and this set in motion a series of life changing events.

This does not mean that you should pester someone incessantly until they get clean and sober or agree to go into counselling. Rather you should have a consistent message for them without badgering or nagging them. Make sure they know that help is available for them if and when they want it.

Establish boundaries and set limits

Drink and drugs – One example of setting a boundary is telling a close friend that you prefer they not be around you if they are drunk or high on drugs. Notice that it is specific, and you have to sit down and communicate this type of request explicitly with someone. Setting a boundary like this is difficult because there is this tendency to hurt other’s feelings.

Setting boundaries is about putting your own personal well being first, and reducing the negative effect of an addicts behaviour on you. You know you are setting effective boundaries when you are taking back control of your own life, instead of being all wrapped up in the problems of a struggling dug addict or alcoholic. This is a crucial distance you must learn to keep when learning how to help someone.

Organise a Formal Intervention

Drink and drugs – This is what most people think of when they hear the term “intervention,” where the friends and family of an addict or alcoholic all get together and confront that person together and urge them to get help. This is not necessarily the best choice though. There is a lot of evidence that an addict or alcoholic will only change when they personally come to their own lowest point or increase their motivation to change. Another form of formal intervention is arranging for the addict to meat a professional drugs worker or counsellor who will undertake ‘motivational interviewing’ and other forms of interventions to try and help the individual into treatment.

Assess a Person’s Addiction in Order to Determine the Correct Approach

Drink and drugs – A friend or loved one who is caught up in the cycle of addiction has to be approached in the right way. We all know how worthless it is for advice to fall on deaf ears, and this is bound to be the case with certain approaches in trying to help addicts. But there are specific, proactive actions that you can take regardless of where your loved one is at in their addiction cycle. There are no hard and fast rules here because different personality types will call for different approaches. One valuable guideline might be to always use a caring approach instead of a threatening one. Consider the different levels of denial and willingness to change that an addict or alcoholic might have:

Complete Denial – If a person is in complete denial of their addiction, then there is little that you can do other than focus on your own behaviours and actions. The best that you can do in this case might be to communicate your boundaries with the person and let it be known that you won’t be bailing them out of any jams or difficulties. A formal intervention is unlikely to produce an immediate change, although it might be a step in letting the person know how much everyone cares for them. In this instance it might be useful for you to seek support for yourself, such as counselling.

They are Admitting to their Problem, but are Reluctant to take action – This is the difference between admitting and accepting that they have an addiction. This person is technically still in denial, but they just aren’t willing to change yet. The fear of change, the fear of life without chemicals or alcohol is too great, even though they know that they have a real problem. In short, they are caught between a rock and a hard place.

They Admit to their Problem and Say they are Willing to Change, but only on Their Own Terms – This is still denial, but in its sneakiest form. The person has agreed to address their addiction and says that they are willing to change. They might even have a genuine willingness to change. But the problem is that they are only going to change on their own terms.

Fear is holding them back. The person is so close to making a life changing decision. Tread with caution and don’t push them too hard as this will have the opposite effect. Be helpful and supportive. Personality type will help dictate if this is the best time for a formal intervention or not. If they are secluded, isolated, or have anxiety or depression, then a formal intervention with a professional is a good idea.

They Accept their Addiction and Will do Almost Anything You Suggest – This represents someone who is ready to change. Get them to a treatment centre or arrange a professional intervention. do things that they should be doing themselves.

Practicing Detachment

Drink and drugs – One of the key principles that will help you in dealing with an alcoholic or drug addict is detachment. The idea behind it is to separate yourself emotionally from the damaging effects of your relationship with them. It is not the same as complete disassociation or abandoning the relationship. The idea is to care for them while detaching emotionally. You can care for them but not feel like you are responsible for them. In other words, you are specifically trying to not get all wrapped up emotionally by an addicts destructive behaviours.

This is difficult

Drink and drugs – Practicing detachment should make it easier over time. Here are some things that you can do in order to practice detachment with the addict in your life:

  • Try not to bend over backwards to rescue them or save them from natural consequences.
  • Don’t cover up for their mistakes or embarrassing situations.
  • Never rescue them from crisis or financial situations.
  • Don’t try to fix them.
  • Let go of any guilt you may have about their addiction

Detachment is not about denying your emotions. If someone close to you dies, for example, you will probably feel sad. You can’t choose this feeling. It simply is. But we do have the power to affect the intensity of this feeling, by focusing on the positive aspects of the situation. We can also change our thinking in an attempt to eradicate irrational beliefs that might be contributing to our emotional turmoil.

The goal is not to go without emotions, the goal is to achieve some level of emotional stability. We are detaching from the negative, irrational thoughts that stir up our emotions–like the guilt we might have if we think someone’s addiction is our fault.

key stages of treatment you will be likely to receive

Drink and drugs – Within this section of our website we explain the key stages of treatment you will be likely to receive.

The Triage Assessment is an assessment that identifies the seriousness of a person’s substance or alcohol misuse problem, the urgency with which treatment is required and any immediate risk of harm. In addition the assessment will identify addiction needs such as mental health needs, housing needs and any potential blocks to successful treatment.

An effective assessment of the needs of the client is pivotal to the effective use of services and therefore needs to be comprehensive and complex. Triage assessment usually covers:

  • Alcohol or drug consumption
  • Dependence
  • Related problems
  • Co-existing health conditions, including co-existing drug and/or mental health problems
  • Risk of harm to self and others
  • Urgency of treatment
  • Motivation and readiness to change
  • Health Problems
  • Mental Health requirements
  • Certain personal data

Detoxification or rather detox’ for short, is the physiological or medical removal of a toxic substances such as alcohol or heroin. It can addictionally refer to the period of withdrawal during which your body returns to homeostasis after long-term use and abuse of an addictive substance.

Detoxification or ‘detox’ involves taking a short course of a medicine which helps to prevent withdrawal symptoms when you stop drinking alcohol or taking addictive drugs. The most commonly used medicine for detox of alcohol is chlordiazepoxide. This is a benzodiazepine medicine. For heroin it is subutex or methadone.

Primary Care is the time in which you first enter a residential treatment centre. During this intensive primary stage of treatment you will start to address your reasons for turning to drugs or alcohol both in group therapy and one to one counselling. At this time you will also agree a ‘care plan’ with your named therapist or drugs worker. This ‘care plan’ will form the basis and direction of your ongoing treatment and recovery.

Secondary Care is a key component of any treatment offered to a client.  It forms the basis of your transition from structured primary care to back home and live back in the community. During this stage of treatment your therapy will focus on life without drugs or alcohol and how you can remain substance free when back in society.

Aftercare is the service offered to clients when they are back home. Our aftercare can consist of either weekly support groups, counselling or visits with your named drugs worker or counselor. Aftercare can last for approximately a year after treatment, however, if the client require, it can last longer
