Our clients regularly ask for the opportunity to learn about and develop skills that will allow them to recognise and support their alcohol addiction.
We also offer emotional and wellbeing support to those affected by alcohol addiction.
Alcohol and the Brain.
The delicate balance of the brain can be disturbed by alcohol, affecting the way we think, feel and behave. On occasions, it can also impact on our long-term mental health.
Alcohol and Mental Health – The Vicious Cycle.
Alcohol can be used in the short term to mask underlying unhappiness or distress, by making changes to the chemistry to the brain. However, these changes are short-lived, and unresolved the anxiety can remain. Over time, as our tolerance to alcohol builds, so does the amount we need to drink to feel the same way. Through this pattern, alcohol dependence can build over time.
Alcohol is actually a depressant and regular heavy drinking can be associated with symptoms of depression. Although it can be hard to distinguish cause and effect.
What we do know from studies is that depression can be linked with heavy drinking and that stopping drinking can be associated with improved mood.
