Alcohol Addiction Statistics For London

If you have an alcohol problem, you will likely feel very alone. Alcohol addiction, by nature, is a very isolating illness. Yet, it is more common than you think.

In London, nearly 30% of the population exceed harmful alcohol levels in their heaviest day of drinking. We can assure you; you are not alone.

In England, there are currently an estimated 589,101 alcohol-dependent drinkers. Disturbingly, less than 20% are now receiving treatment.

In 2017 – 7,697 alcohol-specific deaths were recorded by the Office for National Statistics in the UK. This is the highest number of deaths directly attributed to alcohol since 2008.

This information proves what happens when alcoholics do not undergo specific and professional treatment for their illness.

Statistics for alcohol-related deaths in England and Wales have also risen. In 2016 – 2,593 deaths were registered related to alcohol misuse. These figures show a 5% increase from 2015.

Given that alcoholism often kills if left untreated, these statistics are very worrying. Results show that most alcohol-dependent individuals are either unaware of how dangerous their condition is or cannot access suitable treatment or perhaps think they cannot get well.

Our experience is that you can recover from alcoholism addiction, providing you undergo professional treatment. We will tailor treatment for you as an individual. When it comes to treating addiction, one size does not fit all. A bespoke treatment plan is necessary as with any chronic illness, as this ensures that recovery is attainable and maintained.

Admission To A London Rehab – What To Expect

Once you have decided on the rehab programme that you wish to undergo, we will arrange admission. Where there is an urgent need, we can usually arrange this within 24 hours of receiving your call. If required, we can also assist you by arranging sober transportation. This ensures that you arrive safely at the London rehab of your choice.

We do not expect you, nor would we recommend that you stop drinking if you are alcohol dependent. On admission, a consultant psychiatrist or doctor will take an assessment. They will prescribe a medical detox regime designed to enable you to withdraw from alcohol or drugs as comfortably as possible.

Many people who are addicted fear that detox will be painful or unbearable. We can assure you that this will not be the case. The clinic will prescribe and administer approved medications. Medical detox dramatically diminishes the severity of alcohol withdrawal symptoms. In many cases, patients will feel no withdrawal symptoms at all.

During detox, patients will be supported clinically by medical staff and therapeutically by counsellors and therapists. During this period, you will undergo light therapeutic treatments. Staff are careful to allow patients space to physically recover before undertaking a fully personalised addiction rehabilitation programme.

Our rehab centres guarantee patients a warm and friendly welcome on your arrival. We understand that committing to a rehab detox and treatment programme is a daunting prospect. The staff will do their utmost to ensure patients feel comforted and reassured.

Discrete And Accessible Locations

As everyone knows, London can be very busy, chaotic and noisy. The London residential private rehabs are located in peaceful surroundings away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

All are easy to commute to so that friends and family can visit. We also have many premier rehab centres located just outside of the London area for those who would prefer not to remain too close to home.
