Alcohol addiction is often misunderstood because so many Australians consume alcohol in moderation and lead normal, healthy lives. Unlike other substances, alcohol is both legal and socially acceptable. As a result, the destruction that can result from alcohol addiction is often underestimated until a drastic event occurs, such as the end of a relationship, an accident, job loss or serious illness.
At Riverside Clinic, our goal with our alcohol addiction treatment is to show individuals how to take back control of their lives and to replace the sense of despair and disempowerment, which is often the root of addiction, with one of hope and confidence. Alcoholism is a disease. With proper, professional treatment, the addiction to alcohol can be overcome and individuals can go on to thrive in their lives.
Our clinicians have years of experience in working with alcohol dependent individuals and know how to reach out to the person rather than further giving relevance to the alcoholism. Committed to offering quality, forward-thinking care, they continue to enhance their knowledge and skill with ongoing professional development for alcohol addiction treatment.
Alcohol addiction is not an end. Riverside Clinic is here to offer caring and effective rehabilitation services that can transform lives. This is not something that can be overcome alone; we are here to help.
We offer this short term, residential, program as a circuit breaker for individuals in crisis.
Research indicates that most individuals require a minimum of 90 days in treatment to begin to arrest the addictive cycle.
