Are you ready to stop drinking? Alcoholism affects people of any race, sex, and class in Wales. If you have a problem with sleep disorder, either binge drinking or excessive drinking there's a wide range of mental health services that can help.
Treatments offered for alcoholism may start with an intervention, discussion on 'moderation vs abstinence' and possibly the opinions of inpatient (rehab) or outpatient treatment (therapy), a detox may be required. A good holistic alcohol treatment centre with talking therapy, counselling and expertise in addiction is also recommended. Keeping the alcoholic apart from alcohol and all the triggers associated with acting out can mean hospitalisation or residential sleep disorders treatment is the best solution. Not admitting to a drinking problem (denial) can often be an effective barrier to getting help for addicts.
The 10 most common mental disorders are Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Anxiety Disorders and phobias, Addiction/Substance Use, Bulimia/anorexia, Personality Disorders and finally mood disorders which include depression. If you suffer from any of these you are not alone.

Private rehab Process
Skip The Waiting List. Self-funding: you can self refer. This means literally call or turn up at your residential sleep disorders treatment of choice with a credit card. See admissions.
Health insurance: choose your rehab and then ask GP to write a referral letter for you to take away. Alternatively, ask the doctor of advice on which hospital or clinic he recommends. More.
Arriving at the treatment centre
This will differ at different facilities but it is much the same everywhere
- You will be assessed so that your treatment needs and medical requirements are understood and a treatment plan is created
- You may need to detox
- You may be assigned a consultant psychiatrist near Wern Tarw. They are in overall charge of your care and medication plan. They may make suggestions based on your diagnosis for additional medication or individual therapy on top of group work
- You may then assigned to a group of other patients etc.

Two reasons why rehabs work so well
Local community-based or local outpatient services based in Bridgend does not offer this opportunity or level or isolation. It is proven that taking a person out of their home and away from 'using friends' or 'dealers' offers a better chance of staying sober long term.
Tailored Treatment: Private clinics in Bridgend tend to use a bespoke treatment model rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. Many clients have co-occurring issues like sleep disorders or mood disorders. Addiction is often seen as a response to inner turmoil.
The ability to custom tailor a treatment plan enables clinic staff to achieve maximum benefits from every therapy chosen. Remember time is limited to 28-days if you have health insurance.
Every patient receiving treatment at a UK residential facility is part of a group that is constantly in one another presence, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
"One thing that impressed me - many of my consultants at rehab were recovering, just like me. The psychologists were great." Jameson September 2019 Bridgend
Why rehab might not work:
- Absence of dual diagnosis residential treatment
- Lack of education for family and friends in Cwmfelin
- See addiction myths

How long does rehab take?
Patients are usually admitted into treatment at a private clinic or hospital from four weeks to 6 months, depending on the severity of the addiction. The best results are achieved when people stay in treatment for at least 12 weeks. Detox can take place before admission or on arrival alongside other therapies. More.
A 'normal' day in rehab
Days will differ from rehab to rehab and sleep disorder/addiction to addiction. However, most rehabs in Bridgend will follow a similar pattern.
A significant focus during treatment is on achieving clarity about the issues, people and surroundings in your life that have fuelled the desire to abuse drugs or alcohol/problems with gambling, internet, and sex.
Sleeping in is not part of the programme. You get up early, get dressed, attend breakfast. Some clinics have morning meditation. Some clinics ask patients to clear away breakfast things on a rota.
- Breakfast is followed by group (often 90 minutes)
- Another Group (60 minutes)
- One to one session or Group ;(60 minutes)
- Group, yoga or Pilates session or lecture ;(60 minutes)
- Possible meeting with your consultant, social worker, help team
- There is often written step or life story work to do
Evening time: Normally patients are bused to a meeting of AA, NA, or relevant 12 step programme.
Diet: Several rehabs have adopted nutritional diets to combat mental health issues. There may be an absence of sugar and caffeine. Smoking is still allowed outside as it is said that alcoholics/addicts would not attend otherwise.
Devices: In some clinics phones or laptops use is forbidden or discouraged. Bear in mind that a person with internet or a gaming addiction may find other patient using their devices triggering.
Visitor/family contact: It was common for patients to be advised to limit any or all contact with friends or family during the first week of treatment. Again this differs by provider. NHS rehabs are often further from your home in Wern Tarw as there are limited local resources which can make visiting difficult.
Can I leave my residential sleep disorders treatment? Yes, there are not secure facilities.
Can I come back? Not always, the NHS is sometimes stricter, if you drink or use you may be barred from returning either, at all, or within 48 hours.
Effective treatment solutions:
- Art group therapy

The best location for treatment
Finding the best rehab programme for drug and alcohol/mental health problems is vital to long-term success. But where, close or far?
Every alcoholic is different. However, most counsellors often recommend that removing patients away from their local environment where they may have drunk, used or acted out is probably sensible.
It is better that the location is quiet and has an atmosphere that is both calm, peaceful and still 100% recovery-focused. However, that does not mean that city rehabs do not have appeal.
The difficulty with towns and city location is that offer easy access to alcohol and drugs, whereas locations without shops and fewer people make accessing substances that little bit harder. Perhaps this could be the difference between a moment's weakness leading to relapse or sobriety.
Recommended rehabs. One rehab that ticks all of these boxes is Castle Craig based outside Edinburgh. Only a 4-hour train ride or less from Bridgend.
