Moorpark Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Scotland

What We Treat

Alcohol Rehab

Alcohol is a legal and widely available substance that, in moderation, can contribute to a healthy social life. However, the more alcohol one consumes, the higher their tolerance level becomes and the more alcohol is needed to achieve the same level of pleasure. The body can then become dependent on alcohol, but there is a distinction between alcohol dependence and alcohol addiction. Dependence refers to the physical characteristics of addiction in the body. Addiction itself is both physical and psychological.

Alcohol Detox & rehab

A series of factors fuel addiction, including your upbringing, mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression, as well as low self-esteem. Your gender, how old you are, and your genetic background also shape your relationship with alcohol. There is still a level of stigma surrounding alcohol addiction, which can make it more difficult for someone to reach out for help. However, alcohol addiction is largely involuntary and is recognised as a disease of the mind. It affects people of all ages, classes and backgrounds.

Getting to the cause

It can be difficult to identify alcohol addiction at first but, as with every disease, there are symptoms. Addiction negatively impacts the sufferer’s mental wellbeing, physical wellbeing, relationships, and financial and career security. Alcohol can detrimentally affect the entire body, leading to liver disease, high blood pressure and nerve damage. Emotionally, it can be characterised by feelings of loss of control, helplessness, dysfunction and of course, cravings. These negative feelings reinforce themselves, making the cycle of addiction increasingly difficult to break. Additionally, the effects of alcoholism on the children of alcoholics can lead to trauma and long-lasting mental health issues.

Heal in safety

Despite being incredibly difficult to overcome alone, alcohol addiction treatment under medical and psychological supervision is a highly effective route to recovery. Rehab is a place dedicated to helping clients recover. Moorpark Healthcare’s treatment programmes take a multifaceted approach to healing, which covers freeing the body of alcohol dependence through detox, before working with clients to understand and treat the psychological aspects of addiction. We work in a compassionate and judgement-free capacity, in a warm and safe environment, to use state-of-the-art therapies with the aim of helping clients change their lives for the better.
