The benefits of seeking professional help for alcohol addiction

Seeking professional help for addiction can be daunting, but we are here to help. There are so many benefits to seeking that professional help, so take a read and please reach out if you feel like we could help.  

What is classed as professional help?

When you seek help with alcohol addiction, you will likely look for experts in their field or organisations that specialise in this. Professional help is just that, and it is the difference between trying to tackle it alone, and seeking the help you know you need to get the right support throughout your journey.

There are many different reasons why people might seek professional help, but it is commonly around feelings of being out of control, feeling alone, like life has spiralled, or that they do not know how to get unstuck from how they are feeling with their addiction and habits.

What are the benefits of seeking professional help for alcohol addiction?

Here are three of the main benefits to seeking professional help: 

Tailored and structured programs 

You get to benefit from programs that have been tailored and structured to you. There is no guesswork and there is no uncertainty about the route you’re going to take. A program will help you from point A to point B and support you with every single step.

Experience and expertise 

The experience and expertise of a professional in this field is invaluable. Having someone who knows exactly how you’re feeling and what might be next for you is such a great support. At Help Me Stop, many of our team members have been through what you’re going through, they know what it takes and they know the path you’re walking, and all of our Therapists are BACP members.

You’re not alone 

The simple fact of not dealing with this alone is a huge factor within the realms of addiction. It is complex and it can be confusing, so to have people on your side and your team to help you navigate those challenges is such a weight lifted when you seek the right support. We have group sessions and peer support groups so you can make lifelong connections with people in a similar situation to you.

Where to find alcohol help near me 

Help Me Stop offers non-residential rehab for drug and alcohol addiction in the form of Dayhab, a non-residential rehab programme. With our London centre and also an online program, our services are tailored to help our clients find their next journey and to navigate away from active addiction and into recovery. 

Our treatment programme centre around integrative psychotherapy, which blends a number of evidence-based therapies, including the 12 step approach to addiction treatment, person-centred therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, family therapy, art therapy, recovery workshops, mindfulness, and more. We work mainly in group sessions, and every client also has a one-to-one counselling session each week with their focal therapist.

The goal of Dayhab is to equip you with the tools you need to work towards recovery, with an intensive treatment programme that is centred around sobriety and rebuilding relationships. We regularly see family relationships reconstructed, people parenting successfully, people being able to function at a higher level at work, and people who are connected and inspired following the treatment.

We offer drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs along with detox programs. If you would like to talk to us in confidence about how we can help you, or a friend, then please reach out and a member of our team will be more than happy to help via our contact details.
