Alcohol Rehab – Alcohol Treatment

Alcohol Rehab – Alcohol Treatment

Sep 1, 2014 By Paul Spanjar 0 comments

An idea which has been promoted by The Providence Projects for many years has now been proposed by The Centre for Social Justice (CSJ). The idea being that those with alcohol and/or drug addictions could be treated in abstinence-based treatment centres paid for with a new tax on alcohol. The Centre for Social Justice has calculated that by 2024, a ring fenced ‘treatment tax’ would only put up the cost of alcohol by 2p per unit. At The Providence Projects, we wholeheartedly support any proposal which makes accessing appropriate rehabilitation possible. The new tax would initially raise £155 million in 2015 and £520 million by 2024.

Christian Guy, Director of CSJ, explained that we currently do very little for alcoholics and simply dump addicts on methadone. He stated that real help was only available to those who can afford it and those caught in the system are simply offered cheap alternatives. Year on year, abstinence based rehabs are forced to close due to the lack of funding given to residential rehabs while money is poured into prescribing programmes and methadone programmes with relatively little, if any, success.

"An unassuming house in the heart of Boscombe where miracles happen. From my initial talk with Paul, the admission process with Jon and my induction with Darryl, I was treated with compassion, empathy and understanding. All the staff had been in the same position as me!...If you are looking for a wealth of experience and knowledge around addiction, a safe environment to turn your life around and a solid foundation for your ongoing recovery you will not be disappointed.”
"Today my husband Paul is 1 year clean and sober thanks to The Providence Projects, he has found himself again and is living the life he deserves. " A life beyond his wildest dreams "… He initially signed up for 1 month but soon realised he needed a further 2 months. Paul has been dedicated and followed the advice given to him. He would not be here today if he hadn't been to The Providence Projects. I cannot thank or praise the program and staff enough…”
"A very special place, with wonderful staff. 3 years on life is amazing. Thank you so much for everything you all did for me. Alcohol dependant and a chronic gambler the Provi gave me a platform to turn life around and that it has, meaningful relationships, wonderful friends and most importantly peace of mind. You told me good things would happen and they have - and continue to do so. Highly recommended..."
