Why it’s so hard to beat alcohol addiction
Alcohol addiction can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender or location. It’s the most common form of addiction in the world, with thousands of deaths every year contributed to the excessive consumption of alcohol.
As soon as alcohol consumption starts to impact personal relationships, work, motivation and overall mental and physical health, it’s time to seek help.
Seeking treatment is the first step in the right direction to overcome alcoholism.
Treatment for alcoholism
Seeking treatment is the first step in the right direction to overcome alcoholism. It requires strength, courage and determination. There are several types of treatment available for alcohol addiction, including detoxification and rehabilitation.
Detoxification: This is the process of detoxifying the substance from the body. Withdrawal symptoms can be severe, so in extreme cases of alcoholism you may need help from a medical professional.
Rehabilitation: Once the body is detoxified, rehabilitation can begin. During rehabilitation you’ll receive counselling, in a group, or as an individual, as well as guided support in a calm environment away from everyday life. It’s a chance to detach from the negative triggers that fuel the addiction.
Why treatment fails
There are a few common reasons why treatment is unsuccessful.
It can be difficult to resist peer group pressure when you continue to surround yourself with friends or family who are also excessively drinking alcohol. Rehabilitation provides a way to escape any destructive cycles and form new healthy habits for the future.

At Salt Recovery we offer professional treatment in a safe and secluded environment away from triggers and temptation. Our recovery programs are individually tailored to meet your specific situation and therapy needs.
To overcome alcohol addiction it’s important to accept accountability for your actions. Treatment may not be successful if you consistently expect others to fix your problems for you. To beat alcohol addiction you’ll need to take control, do the hard work and find the strength to do it yourself.
A fear of change
It’s normal to fear change, but it’s not normal to accept destructive behaviour caused by alcohol addiction. Many people believe ‘it’s better the devil you know’, no matter how severe an alcohol addiction becomes.
At Salt Recovery we help our clients embrace strength and courage to shed these false narratives and move forward with confidence to start on the pathway to sobriety.
Afraid of withdrawal
It’s completely normal to fear the symptoms encountered during withdrawal. In cases of severe alcoholism, people can experience serious symptoms and discomfort when detoxing.
At Salt Recovery we provide a safe environment with medical professionals on hand to prescribe medication if it’s required during the detox process. Our team are there every step of the way to offer support and guidance to ensure you’re not alone during your recovery.
Lack of support
We know that recovering from alcohol addiction is not easy. It requires strength of self, as well as constant support from those around you. You’ll need support during your recovery and as you adjust to your normal life.
During your stay at Salt Recovery you’ll receive 24/7 support, and after you leave we’ll continue to give you the support and motivation to smoothly transition back into everyday life at home.
