Stop Drinking Programme

Our alcohol treatment programme aims to support patients who suffer from alcohol abuse or alcohol addiction. The programme is designed for patients with work obligations and family responsibilities and those who are unable to commit to residential treatment. It's a 20 hour programme delivered by two experienced psychologists with Masters in Addictions from Kings College, London.

The Programme can be delivered in one, two or three weeks, providing the opportunity to access treatment while still living in the community and engaging in day-to-day life.

It's structured to enable little or no interference with work, study or family life in that most sessions are delivered at convenient times. The psychosocial interventions include didactic elements (psycho-educational workshops, relapse prevention skills training, etc), group therapy sessions, and individual therapy sessions for which each patient is allocated a focal therapist to guide them through the programme and ensure that their therapeutic objectives are met.

Also included are couple, family or employer sessions when required.

Topics include:

  • Understanding addiction

  • Identification of triggers and warning signs

  • Developing coping strategies for triggers

  • Craving management

  • Identifying social pressures

  • Coping with stressful situations

  • Maintaining motivation for change

  • Changing lifestyle and readiness for change

  • Alcohol impact on health, behaviour and relationships

  • Developing self-esteem (self Worth & confidence)

  • Repairing Relationships

  • Building a support network

  • Health and wellbeing

 

After care interventions include: sober coaching and companionship, meeting the individual wherever they are in their journey – supporting them to navigate any of the challenges they might face during and after the outpatient programme.
