Alcohol Dependence

Counselling and Therapy for Alcohol Addiction

Who's it for?

The positive thing about alcohol dependence is that it's entirely possible to recover. And there are many different ways of getting there. Millions succeed through self-help groups. Others need more structured alcohol support.

The key to recovery is recognising not just the problem but understanding the motivation and personal resources of the sufferer. If they are an alcoholic, what kind are they? Is it an addiction or does it mask an underlying problem? How much support do you need to succeed?

How do I start treatment for alcoholism?

By calling our counselling team on 0203 326 9160 We will recommend one of our psychotherapy team who specialise in counselling for alcohol abuse.

Alcohol treatment starts with an initial meeting, in which you will chat with one of our counsellors. If you decide that you are comfortable with your counsellor and that you can speak with them easily, you will start to work with them on your plan for recovery.

Calls to us are completely confidential.

Alcohol Addiction Treatment - How can we help?

Our Clinical Partners addiction team is able to help sufferers, their friends and their families, answer these difficult questions. The team includes Psychiatrists, Psychologists and Psychotherapists trained in the treatment of alcoholism; we are able to offer a full assessment and diagnosis of all cases. We can then offer expert, independent advice on effective treatment programmes. These can range from weekly therapy sessions to day-care, supported living and residential treatment options.

We are also highly experienced in organising interventions, for where you feel the sufferer is unable or unwilling to seek help themselves. These are extremely effective at compelling the unwilling alcoholic to enter treatment.

How long does treatment take?

The length of any treatment depends entirely on the nature of the problem and the motivation of the sufferer. Psychotherapy tends to be the mainstay of alcoholism treatment, and this can involve weekly sessions from 6 to 12 weeks to months and years, depending on the individual.

Day-care can involve a couple of days a week at a treatment centre, while supported living offers a stable environment from which you can go out to work and maintain your normal life.

Residential treatment can also be hugely beneficial but we would always recommend a full assessment to establish whether this is the most effective treatment plan for the individual and their family.

  • Many thanks for this and all your work in helping us get here far more swiftly than we have managed with the NHS. It is much appreciated, and you and Dr Chowdhury have helped greatly in relieving the stress we have been feeling by getting us to a place where we know what is going on, and what we need to do for our son.

  • I would recommend Clinical Partners to anyone who has been struggling with getting a diagnosis, it can totally transform your lives as it has ours.

  • I was fed up with life when I contacted Katie at Clinical Partners, her response to my call and the support thereafter kept me alive.

  • Dr Alison was very caring and approachable. Your approach and response to my call will be remembered for a very long time.

  • Just saw J. He wanted me to tell you how much he appreciated the way you spoke to him on the phone Caroline. He said you made him feel human again when he felt quite suicidal. He was really pleased he was seen so quickly.

  • We met with the doctor today, he was great, we felt at ease with him, he was very professional in his approach and obviously knew what he was doing! Thank you for your help in arranging such a quick appointment.

  • SO grateful to Clinical Partners - well Simon - for the confirmation of NOT having Cyclothymia. Am attempting now to stabilise and get well - something I was told would not happen when diagnosed with Cyclothymia (for life!).

  • I would like to thank the Clinical Partners staff for asking about us. I like to let you know that M's physical and psychological health is great. With my best regards and respect.

  • You have been fantastic at helping T see the help he can get and I am so grateful. Again thank you so much, I really do appreciate the efforts you have put in.

  • Thank you for setting us (and me in particular) off down the road. I will always be grateful to you, and I do feel that you spent a lot of time on my case without much reward.
