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 alcohol, 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 (residential treatment centre) or outpatient treatment (therapy), a detox may be required. A good 28-day rehab 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 alcohol rehabilitation centre 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.

Guide to getting the best treatment
Wherever you live in Cardiff or Wales, there is the perfect residential addiction centre for alcohol or drug misuse that can help you overcome your addiction. We'll help you find it.
Starting the rehab process
NHS rehab Process: First stop is GP. Ask to be referred for both counselling sessions for your alcohol/addiction and to a local drug and alcohol team nearest to you in Cardiff. Although NHS resources are limited, it is still possible to receive funding for treatment.
Private rehab Process
Self-funding: you can self refer. This means you can literally call and book, or simply turn up with a credit card to your alcohol rehabilitation centre of choice. 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 East Moors. 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 alcoholics etc.
- You are then possibly assigned a therapist or support worker/nurse locally in Cardiff
- You may be given 12 step recovery literature
- You are probably shown your room which you may have to share
- You might then meet the rest of the alcoholics/addicts
Everyone is very friendly. The staff in Cardiff have seen it all before so you are just another addict trying to recover. As patients, you are all in the same boat as everyone feels as raw and vulnerable as each other so making friends is normally easy.

Two reasons why rehabs work so well
Professional Addiction Support: Rehab in Cardiff offers a level of group support not available through community-based services. Addicts have many similarities with other addicts regardless of the drug (or behaviour) of choice.
People with a range of mental health problems can be very different from patients suffering from an addiction, although their symptoms, depression, anxiety etc may appear similar. An addict can often only find solace in another addict. Many rehab psychologists are recovering addicts/alcoholics.
AA and NA whilst very important as a way of staying sober are sometimes not sufficient in early sobriety, especially when detox is required. However, they are voluntary charities. They are not professional and cannot always identify or address other mental health issues. Members are not trained.
Tailored Treatment: Private clinics in Cardiff tend to use a bespoke treatment model rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. Many patients have co-occurring issues like sleep disorders or personality 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.
"If you think you can beat a drug addiction on the outside, think again. I couldn't. I needed inpatient. I needed tough love, structure. The support was amazing." Myah December 2021 Thorne
Why rehab might not work:
- Not enough time in treatment
- alcoholics going to rehab for someone other than themselves
- See addiction myths

How long does rehab take?
The duration of your alcohol rehabilitation centre stay will depend on the severity of your dependency, your own commitment, family support and willingness to live a life free from dependency, and the amount of time and money you have available to spend. If you have insurance then it will generally be 28-days.
Generally, the longer the rehab programme the less likely you are to relapse. NHS rehab normally accommodates longer inpatient treatments sometimes up to a year. More.
Average UK inpatient times
- Detox: 7-10 days (Methadone/20 days and Benzodiazepines/2-8 weeks).
- Hospital residential treatment, general mental health issues, depression/anxiety etc.: 7-14 days
- Most common Addiction programme/residential treatment: 28-days
- long-term residential treatment: 90 days
- NHS funded treatment, non private: 3months - 1 year
- Long term Outpatient treatment (including treatment for alcohol: 130 days

A 'normal' day in rehab
Days will differ from rehab to rehab and alcohol/addiction to addiction. However, most rehabs in Cardiff 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 shopping, sex or love.
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 clients 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 East Moors as there are limited local resources which can make visiting difficult.
Can I leave my alcohol rehabilitation centre? 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.

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 Rehab Location
Finding the best rehab programme for alcohol problems is vital to long-term success. But where close or far? Every addict is different. However, most qualified psychiatrists often recommend that removing addicts 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. Over 10,000 patients have passed through our doors since 1988, and the majority have gone on to achieve, long-term abstinent recovery from their addictions. Another is Smarmore Castle in Ireland.

alcoholism often results in sepsis, infections and other transmitted diseases like HIV/AIDS, in the case of injected drugs. Many people believe that using the same needle repeatedly does not cause any infections because it isn't shared with others. However, this is not true. Using the same needles without sterilizing them can cause infections.Other local areas: New Town, Athelstaneford, Bangor, Ballymacrevan, Rylah, Ardler, Jordanhill, Bruntsfield, Old Kilpatrick, Maidens, Whitehouse Lower and Rhos y garth.
