Counselling to help with alcohol abuseAlcoholism

 

Frequently people engage in alcohol abuse at different points in their lives, although this does not mean, that they are alcoholic.  An alcoholic is not necessarily someone who drinks every day.  They could be someone who binges on alcohol sporadically; the alcoholic is someone who is unable to drink in moderation.

Regardless of how someone is diagnosed as alcohol dependent or how he or she came to realize they have a serious drinking problem, the first step to treatment is a sincere desire to get help. Alcoholics who are pressured into treatment by social pressure or forced to quit by circumstances rarely succeed in the long run.

Alcohol Abuse

Alcohol problems occur at different levels of severity, from mild to life threatening. Although alcohol dependence (alcoholism) is the most severe stage, less severe drinking problems can also be dangerous.

The great majority of alcoholics go unrecognised by health care professionals. This is largely because of the alcoholic's ability to conceal the amount and frequency of drinking, denial of problems caused by or made worse by drinking, the gradual onset of the disease, and the body's ability to adapt to increasing alcohol amounts.

Often the drinking behaviour is concealed from loved ones. There are, however, certain behaviors and signs that indicate someone may have a problem with alcohol. These behaviors and signs include insomnia, frequent falls, bruises of different ages, blackouts, chronic depression, anxiety, irritability, tardiness or absence at work or school, loss of employment, divorce or separation, financial difficulties, frequent intoxicated appearance or behavior, weight loss, or frequent vehicle accidents.

 

 

The Therapy: The presenting issue will be dealt with in a relaxed initial consultation which will allow for all aspects of the therapeutic process to be discussed and all questions answered openly, fully and confidentially.
