The last person to see the problem is the alcoholic.
Alcoholism affects people of any race, sex, and class in Wales. If you have a problem with sex, 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 inpatient treatment centre with talking therapy, counselling and expertise in addiction is also medically recommended. Keeping the alcoholic apart from alcohol and all the triggers associated with acting out can mean hospitalisation or sexual dysfunction treatment is the best solution. Not admitting to a drinking problem (denial) can often be an effective barrier to getting help for patients.
Other common mental illnesses include anxiety disorders like panic disorder, mood disorders/Seasonal depression (SAD) or postnatal depression, psychotic disorders like suffering from delusions or hallucinations, eating disorders/compulsive overeating, personality disorders like paranoia and PTSD and CPTSD.

Two reasons why rehabs work so well
Ownership: The treatment provided through hospital forces alcoholics/addicts to take ownership of their circumstances, feeling, actions and relationships as opposed to blaming others.
Without anyone or anything else to blame, he or she must come to terms with the fact that they alone are responsible for changing their addictive behaviour AND they are responsible for their own recovery.
Aftercare: UK Statistics always show that aftercare is an important component in achieving long-term abstinence from alcohol addiction. Recovering addicts who do not receive appropriate aftercare are 10 times more likely to relapse within one year. Most clinics include aftercare as part of their treatment services in most cases. NHS clinics do not always have this facility
"This has been one of the best things I have done for my mental and physical health and life in general. First things first!." Lillian June 2017 Newmill
Why rehab might not work:
- Little to no aftercare
- The rehab program doesn't meet individual needs in Canton
- 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.
Cost of rehab
Costs can range from £2,000 per week for a basic service to around £10,000 per week for a boutique service. Some clinics charge extras which have to be covered separately and which you may not anticipate in advance. More on Costs.
The best location for treatment
Finding the best rehab programme for alcohol or drugs/mental health difficulties is vital to long-term success. But where, close or far?
Every alcoholic is different. However, most counsellors often recommend that removing alcoholics away from their local environment where they may have drunk, used or acted out is probably recommended.
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 Cardiff.
