The Lighthouse Rehab Clinic is here to help if you or a loved one are struggling to stop alcohol. We offer highly effective and affordable alcohol rehab as a means for you or your loved one to to get well and resolve a devastating drink problem.

Those with a chronic alcohol problem are usually the last to admit they cannot control their drinking and need help.

Why is this? Why do they resist seeking treatment for alcoholism when it is evident to all around them that they are slowly killing themselves and in urgent need of treatment?

Alcoholism is a very destructive disease of the brain and is progressive in nature. Someone who has become addicted to alcohol will be terrified of giving up the one thing that seemingly makes their life bearable.

What Is Alcoholism?

According to Drinkaware, alcoholism is: “Alcoholism is the most serious form of problem drinking, and describes a strong, often uncontrollable, desire to drink. Sufferers of alcoholism will often place drinking above all other obligations, including work and family, and may build up a physical tolerance or experience withdrawal symptoms if they stop.”

For many, the experience of not drinking or trying to stop suddenly is too much: creating a plethora of unpleasant symptoms including shaking, sweating, anxiety and panic attacks. Add this to the mental obsession to drink, and it’s easy to see why people find it so hard to stop drinking and need help.

Often, it is only when the pain of drinking alcohol outweighs the fear of being sober – that they become willing to try and stop alltogether.

It is this fear and self delusion that keeps many alcoholics from seeking the life saving alcohol treatment that they so desperately need. Sadly some die from not accessing help quickly enough.

If you have already reached the point where you realise that you need help to stop drinking, this is good news! Our Lighthouse rehab clinic in Essex, close to London, offers effective and affordable alcohol treatment, meaning that your journey to sobriety can start as quickly as today.

What Is Alcohol Rehab?

Our alcohol rehab is a purpose built clinic that offers an alcohol rehab programme designed to help those suffering from alcoholism to recover physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

There are various different types of alcohol rehab and the one that is most effective will depend on what your treatment needs are as an individual.

The Lighthouse rehab clinic in Southend on Sea in Essex, around an hour from central London, is what is know as a fully residential rehab clinic. This means that everything is included in the cost you pay and there are no hidden extras. It is also means that everything you need to get well is under the one roof: your accomodation, your food, your therapy and your detox.

It is recognised to be the safest and most successful type of alcohol rehab available in terms of treatment outcomes.

Who Needs To Go To An Alcohol Rehab Clinic?

Any individual who is struggling to stop drinking and is suffering physically, mentally, financially, socially and emotionally as a result of their drinking, would certainly benefit from alcohol rehab.

Many who suffer from alcoholism make the grave mistake of thinking that they can overcome their drinking problem on their own without help. Alcohol addiction is a savage and relentless illness, it is about so much more than just the alcohol.

A detox from alcohol alone is rarely sufficient. With the same coping mechanisms and self destructive belief systems an alcoholic is highly likely to drink again. This is why alcohol rehab is needed.

The Lighthouse Rehab London, Essex

Our purpose-built alcohol rehab clinic.

Our alcohol rehab will not only provide you with a medically managed alcohol detox, but also treat the root causes of your addiction – the reasons why you drink. As experts in addiction treatment, we understand that treating the causes and manifestations of alcoholism is imperative to permanent and ongoing sobriety.

The Lighthouse rehab clinic provides a safe, confidential and recovery focused environment in which we will help you to heal on every level possible. Furthermore, we believe wholeheartedly in individualised addiction treatment and will therefore tailor your alcohol treatment plan to take into account your personal treatment needs.

How Long Does Rehab For Alcohol Last?

How long you stay in our alcohol rehab in London or Essex is down to you. Based on your individual assessment outcome we will make a definite suggestion as to the time frame of rehabilitation that is most likely to work and bring about the best results.

We understand that a long inpatient stay scares most individuals. The thought of leaving the comfortable surroundings of their own home, their family and friends, strikes fear in to most alcoholics.

If this is the case for you, we assure you that your treatment can be extended at any point in time during your stay with us. Your progress will be constantly monitored by our professional multi disciplinary team of addiction treatment experts, who will regularly review your rehab treatment care plan and make suggestions and amendments wherever necessary.

Our goal is not to gain from your illness but to help you to recover comprehensively so that you do not have the future need for rehab again.

The vast majority of staff who work for Step by Step Recovery are in recovery themselves, as are our founders. We pride ourselves on providing professional addiction treatment of exceptional quality at a cost you can afford.

What Happens After Alcohol Rehab?

Step by Step Recovery do not believe that alcohol treatment stops once inpatient rehab has been completed. To account for this we offer free aftercare to all of our clients who graduate from our rehab – for life!

In addition to primary care alcohol rehab, we also offer secondary care and third stage supported living accomodation. For an alcoholic who has lost all as a result of alcoholism, staying within a supportive environment after rehab treatment is strongly advised.
