Alcohol Rehab FAQ

What is Alcohol rehab?

Alcohol rehab, short for alcohol rehabilitation, describes the treatment programme designed to treat people suffering from either alcohol dependency or alcohol misuse. The alcohol rehab at The Providence Projects, originally designed by Steve Spiegel and Dr Peter Turnbull is widely recognised as one of the leading alcohol rehab centres in the UK. The alcohol rehab programme consists of a wide range of therapies aimed at addressing the alcohol problem and developing the skills to remain sober.

How much does alcohol rehab cost?

Alcohol rehabs can cost anything up to £10,000 per week although the majority of rehabs in the UK charge less than £2,500 per week. At The Providence Projects, we are committed to offering the best value alcohol rehab programmes in the UK and are offering a comprehensive and intensive 28 day alcohol rehab programme for £3950.

How long is alcohol rehab?

Alcohol rehab programmes at The Providence Projects will vary in length depending on your individual requirements. There are a variety of programmes on offer but we find that most people initially choose the 28 day programme initially. During this 28 day programme, all clients have the option to extend if required up to the full length 12 week treatment programme. Once completed, there are a variety of aftercare packages available.

What is an alcoholic?

The word, ‘alcoholic’ may sometimes seem harsh. Many people imagine that they have to be drinking on a park bench before they become ‘alcoholic’ and that if you still have the house, the business, the marriage then surely, you can’t be an alcoholic? Unfortunately, this is not the case and we recommend one simple question. Does your drinking cost you more than money? If the answer is yes, then you may have a problem. If your drinking is affecting your relationships, your work, your health, your business, your family or your general wellbeing, it would suggest that there may be a problem.

What is alcohol detox?

Depending on the nature of the drinking, people accessing the alcohol rehab programme at The Providence Projects may require an alcohol detox. Alcohol detox is overseen by Dr Turnbull at The Providence Surgery who has over 25 years experience specialising in alcohol and addiction treatment. The detox is designed to ensure that you withdraw safely and comfortably and that you don’t encounter too many withdrawal symptoms. Some clients may not require alcohol detox as they do not have a physical dependency.

Will I be able to drink again?

Throughout the alcohol rehab programme, The Providence Projects have a zero tolerance policy and if anyone has been found to be drinking alcohol at all, they will be discharged from treatment. After completing an alcohol rehab programme, we recommend that abstinence is the best solution to ensure a long safe recovery.

Will I need an alcohol detox?

On arrival into treatment, you will have a full consultation with Dr Turnbull or a member of his medical team at The Providence Surgery. He will work with you to help identify if a) you require an alcohol detox programme and b) if so, the best course of medication for you.

Do I need alcohol rehab?

The Providence Projects offer free assessment to anyone considering an alcohol rehab programme. This gives us the opportunity to assess your suitability and most importantly gives you the opportunity to assess us and decide if you would like to join our alcohol rehab programme.

Does it matter how much I am drinking?

Seeking help for alcohol misuse does not depend on how much you are drinking. Some of the clients here drank heavily every day, whilst others binged at weekends but found that they could not break the habit. What matters is whether the individual wants to change. If you or your loved one want to address your drinking, call us today on 0800 9550945 to find out more about our alcohol rehabilitation programmes.

How do I know if I have an alcohol problem?

There is a questionnaire on this site which you can complete which will give you an idea as to whether you have an alcohol problem. Unfortunately denial is a common symptom of alcoholism and the individual that has the problem is often the last to admit it.

What do I need to bring to alcohol rehab?

If you make the decision to come to rehab at The Providence Projects, our admissions team will tell you exactly what you need to bring. Most things you need are provided here but they will explain it to you as well as sending you an email with a precise list of what you will need to join the alcohol rehab programme.

How do I choose an alcohol rehab?

Choosing the right alcohol rehab programme is important. Read reviews and ensure that you choose an alcohol rehab centre with a long track record of delivering success. We would recommend that you look for centres that have been going for at least 10 years. If you are looking on the internet for an alcohol rehab programme, be aware of referral agents. They often appear to be free helplines, or sites that will help you find rehab but they simply recommend centres for commission and lack clinical training. If somebody claims to be providing a service for ‘free’, ask yourself why.

Does alcohol rehab work?

Yes. Success rates at The Providence Projects are excellent. At our last annual reunion (pictures available on our facebook page), we had over 400 people. These are people had attended our alcohol rehab programmes in the past and have transformed their lives.

"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..."
