Private Alcohol Addiction Treatment, Cardiff

The Growing Alcohol Problem in Cardiff

Cardiff is the centre of economic and business activity in Wales and as such alcohol addiction among executives and professionals is a growing problem. In Cardiff and Vale almost half (47%) of adults report drinking above the recommended alcohol limits in the previous week, and more than a quarter (28%) report binge drinking.(1) Estimates show that the National Health Service (NHS) in Wales spends about £70 - £85 million per year on treating alcohol-related health problems. This figure has been steadily rising over the years. (1) 

Alcohol addiction has a hugely negative impact on individuals, their families and on their workplace environment. The Executive Rehab Guide is available to help advise people from Cardiff, the rest of Wales, and all over the United Kingdom.

Employers often ignore alcohol and drug abuse in the workplace until it is too late. Residential rehab treatment can transform an addicted employee from a liability to a productive and fulfilled worker. 

Residential Rehab

Private residential rehab treatment for problem drinkers can transform their lives, rebuild their family relationships and change them from an unproductive employee into a positive and fulfilled worker. Residential rehab is the most intensive form of alcohol and drug rehab treatment available and can be a life-changing experience. Many alcohol treatment options are available in Cardiff and further afield.
