what is rehab?

Anyone from any background can be affected by alcohol addiction and require rehab to get back on track. The way the condition affects a person can also vary depending on the individual – some people may drink heavy amounts all day long, while others may binge drink for a short time. Spotting signs of an alcohol addiction can be much harder than a drug or substance addiction.

We can offer alcohol rehab services in Spain at Step One Recovery so that you can live a life free from the oppression of alcoholism. We have a compassionate approach to every kind of addiction, and offer rehab treatments that involve mindfulness and holistic therapies in the sunny climate of Spain, which is known to promote positivity, health and well-being. Working together, we can help you or a family member to rehabilitate and live a life that no longer involves excessive drinking.

Do I need help for alcohol rehab?

Before you contact us it is worth you carrying out the following self-assessment to see if your relationship with alcohol could be an addiction that requires alcohol rehab at our retreat in Spain. Ask yourself the below questions, giving ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers to each one in turn.

  1. Have you found yourself drinking more and more excessively and at unusual times of the day?
  2. Do you find that you have an increased tolerance to alcohol with no sign of hangover symptoms?
  3. Do you hide alcohol from loved ones?
  4. Have you lost your job as a result of your drinking?
  5. Do you feel increasingly tired, depressed or anxious and find that alcohol helps you cope with such symptoms?

If you have answered ‘yes’ to three or more of these questions, you could require alcohol rehab for an addiction. We can help at our rehab centre in Spain at Step 1 Recovery, and encourage you to give us a call.

Why choose alcohol rehab in Spain with Step 1 Recovery?

When we first begin to work with you, we will discuss your drinking in detail to determine the severity of your addiction. We’ll also talk about symptoms you may be experiencing, for instance, anxiety or depression, to see if you similarly need treatment for these conditions as part of your alcohol rehab treatment with us. You will be assigned a therapist who can give you 24/7 support and will talk you through your bespoke treatment plan.

Treating alcohol addiction is difficult and can be more challenging when compared to drug rehabilitation. For rehab to work, you must want to become sober, and successful treatment will depend on your determination. This is why you should consider alcohol rehab in Spain with Step 1 Recovery. Thousands of people from the UK like you each year make the decision to travel to sunny Spain to seek rehab therapy for a variety of addictions. A first reason is that rehabilitation programmes are much cheaper in Europe than they are back in the UK, bearing in mind that private rehab care in the UK can cost up to £28,000 for a 28-day programme. All rehab centres in Spain are also carefully regulated by the Spanish government, so you can rest assured that you are in safe hands. Travelling abroad to go to rehab also gives you privacy opportunities you might not have in the UK. Being able to tell friends and family that you are going ‘on holiday’ is much easier than admitting you are going to rehab, and travelling to Spain makes all of this possible. Of course, before you start booking your plane tickets, you should always consider family and work commitments. Rehab can sometimes involve being away for weeks, depending on the programme and treatment you are undertaking, so be sure that you have the time to take for yourself and plan your trip carefully.

Then there’s the weather. With plenty of sunshine all year round and an overall increase in Vitamin D when you pay a visit to this holiday hotspot, you’re bound to be feeling more optimistic and positive about the journey you are about to undertake to recovery, without any distractions that you may experience back home. We offer our clients in-client treatment at our centre, so we can focus on your alcohol rehab programme properly by having you stay with us in luxurious and comfortable accommodation.
