Alcohol Addiction Rehab Help, from Verve Health
When you need help to recover from addiction, we are here for you.
Verve Health rehab centres are experts at providing high quality levels of rehab care for our patients. Everyone that comes to us is welcomed, made to feel at home in spacious rooms, given access to a wealth of therapies, workshops, and treatments, and simultaneously gives themselves the very best chances at addiction recovery success.
Here at Verve Health, we looked at the examples the general public have of rehab clinics and found that celebrity rehab centres were the only one’s people have even heard of. We want to offer a similar experience for those on a budget. Money shouldn’t be the thing that stops you recovering from your alcohol addiction. Everyone should have equal opportunities in our modern world and sometimes that means taking an art therapy class.
Verve Health have sourced the best recovery specialists in the region to create a reactive, innovative, and blended treatment program range. As a result, we can cover any addiction brought to us, as well as helping those who need mild to moderate mental health rehab services, and those that suffer from an emotional disorder. Our wide range of services even extends beyond the alcohol rehab stage, allowing for a detailed and thorough aftercare service, so you know you have the best in treatment, even after you sign out of rehab.
Do you have an alcohol problem? Does it feel like you can’t go a day without a drink? Verve Health Rehab Clinics can admit you, detox you, treat you, and support you through the ongoing recovery process. Nowhere else in the UK can you receive such attentive, good quality, end-to-end rehab for alcoholism.

What’s Included in a 14 Day Rehab Program?
It’s all very well for us to tell you that we offer a tailored blend of high end therapies, but what do we actually do to help alcoholics to recover? In England and Wales, about 9,000 people die annually from alcohol related problems. It is further estimated that of all the alcoholics in Britain, only 1 in 5, or 20%, come forward seeking treatment help or rehab for alcoholism. If alcohol addiction is left unchecked, it will eventually kill you. This should be reason enough to seek help for drinking.
Verve Health help alcohol addicts by providing an end-to-end recovery service. When you come to us with the goal of quitting drinking for good, we take you in and assign you one of our beautiful guest rooms. From here, you will be given an orientation and will be assessed by one of our clinical team. Between you and your team, you will develop a treatment plan that will incorporate all the different treatment types you respond best to. These will be devised through conversations between yourself and the clinical staff, combined with past medical history and any notes you have.
Individual Treatment Plans for Alcohol Addicts in England
Once your individual treatment plan has been devised, it will include a mixture of what we call ‘keywork’ therapies. These are usually things like Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), but we do have other Psychotherapy tools available amid our talented team.
We will blend these keywork therapies with some optional ones. If you enjoy Meditation, you might take this class with us. If you prefer to set goals for yourself, or even share experiences in group therapies, we can accommodate this. We can help you work through anxiety in a specific time and place, let you share your life story, and can even provide family therapy to soothe the bonds alcoholism has broken between you and your loved ones.
Once you and your clinical team have devised your person-centred treatment plan, you will be ready to go from day-one. First of all, you will need to take a few days to go through detox for alcohol. In the UK, those with a severe alcohol addiction (that drink every day and for more than 4/5 units) take much longer to recover than those with a milder addiction will. The symptoms of alcohol withdrawal will also be less severe.
Let’s talk about each of these stages in greater detail.

How To Detox from Alcohol?
When you decide to stop drinking for good, you will need to go through the detox stage. This is the first step to stopping drinking and includes refraining from alcohol until it is entirely out of your system. This can take anything up to 72 hours and won’t come without your body trying to punish you.
Alcohol detox is accompanied by a number of symptoms of withdrawal, the majority of which we will discuss a little later. For the moment, let’s just summarise them as including an upset stomach, seating, shaking, feeling and being sick, and can even include delirium, if you have been an excessively heavy drinker for a long time.
Although these symptoms can last for a week or two, they will start to fade from the fourth or fifth day that you have quit drinking for. The reason you have to go through all of this is because your brain has adapted to processing large volumes of alcohol on a daily basis. When this is taken away, the brain interprets it as something being wrong or missing from the system. It then sends a number of false signals to your body, ordering it to misbehave until it gets what it wants. If you don’t give it what it wants for a long enough time period, it will remember that it doesn’t need alcohol to operate and will return to its normal state.
The chances are that you will still feel alcohol cravings for years to come. That’s OK though. The point is that it becomes easier to resist, every time you are exposed to alcohol. The symptoms gradually fade over time, with those first crucial few days or weeks best spent in one of Verve Health’s dedicated Alcohol Rehab Clinics.
How Long Does it Take to Stop Drinking?
Once you have emerged from the detox process, our dedicated recovery teams will be on hand at each of our centres. They will take you through the rehab from alcohol process by introducing you to the therapies, sessions, workshops, and treatments that you are required to attend, during your treatment plan evaluation. If you see something else you think you would enjoy, discuss with your assigned Recovery Worker to see if you can join in. We want all of our clients to be as included in as many of our events as they are comfortable with.
As to how long it will take you to ‘complete’ our programs: that is entirely down to your body chemistry. Some people quit drinking in 7 days, having decided once and for all that they want to stop drinking there and then. They don’t even use our aftercare program, they simply book in for a week, complete the therapies and workshops and recover for good. Others take longer, use an eclectic mix of therapies, and rely more heavily on our clinical staff, even after they leave. We welcome and respect each and every type of client. The point of recovery with Verve Health is that you do it at your own pace.
Some of the therapies you can expect to find in Verve Health alcohol rehab centres include:
- Fellowship Meetings – those that quit drinking using the 12 steps program will be delighted to know that you can attend fellowship meetings, right here in our English alcohol rehab centres. We cover Norfolk. Suffolk, and Cambridgeshire
- Self-Esteem Workshops – If you have been drinking for a long time, you might not remember how to function in social situations without it. Worse, many of your existing friends will have been made through your alcohol addiction. Self-Esteem workshops, from Verve Health, can get you back on track.
- Client-Led Groups – engage with your peers on a new level as group therapy sessions turn inwards. Lead your own group, encourage your fellows to interact, and use your story to help and inspire others.
- Yoga Classes – relax your body while your mind concentrates on more important matters, with our in-house yoga
- Relapse Prevention – it is just as important to us that you don’t relapse once sober, as getting you off alcohol in the first place is. We want you to get sober with Verve Health – and then stay sober. Our relapse prevention course will keep you on the straight and narrow when times get tough.
If any of this is appealing to you and you want to stop being an alcoholic, call us today, on 0203 955 7703. We are waiting for your word to spring into action.

What are the Symptoms of Alcohol Withdrawal?
When you do go through rehab, there will be symptoms of alcohol withdrawal. These are caused by your brain, which thinks something is wrong with your body since it doesn’t have to process the alcohol that it normally would.
Unfortunately, there isn’t much to be done about these withdrawal symptoms, and you just have to endure them as part of the healing process. Luckily, when you recover with our specialist addiction teams, you are able to take advantage of medical intervention. We can prescribe medications which will lessen the withdrawal symptoms, taking the edge off and getting you back to healthy as soon as possible.
It is important that you don’t go through alcohol detox or rehab on your own, particularly if you are a heavy drinker. Stopping drinking cold turkey is a massive shock to your system that should be avoided, especially if you have underlying health conditions. If you have drank heavily for a long time, you will need to detox under medical supervision to ensure your health. Otherwise, you risk the worst symptoms of alcohol withdrawal, which include delirium, heart failure, and even hallucinations.
- Headaches and dizziness – you may feel as if you are on a ship when you try to walk. This is just your mind not used to being sober.
- Sweating and shaking – both of these are considered totally normal when you first quit drinking.
- Insomnia, restlessness, anxiety – all of which will eventually pass, as long as you keep up your sobriety.
- Sickness and diarrhoea – your stomach is likely to be upset. Drink plenty of fluids and take any medications your Verve Health medical team prescribe for you.
- Heart failure and delirium, fevers, and hallucinations, all represent the worst of the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal.
If you think you can handle these symptoms for a few days in order to get clean for the rest of your life, then we have exactly the program you need. Our blended mix of therapies will give you all the opportunity you need to get off drink for good.
Here at Verve Health, your sobriety is our priority. And it all starts with a single phone call.
