There are many people from all walks of life who are struggling with an addiction. One of the most common addictions around the world is alcoholism. Kenya, according to a 2015 report by the Inter Press Service, is experiencing a rate of alcoholism that is rising alarmingly in the country.
This is echoed by the Ministry of Health as well as the National Authority for the Campaign against Alcohol and Drugs. In a recent survey, it was found that alcohol consumption and beer sales outside of the hours of 5 pm and 11 pm have risen almost 5% from 2012 to over 26.4 million litres.
Getting assistance with an addiction to alcohol can be a very challenging step. The family is often involved in seeking out treatment and helping loved ones to make the necessary changes in their lives to be successful in their recovery.
Treatment at Home
One reason that many people may not seek addiction recovery treatment is fear of the type of treatment they may be required to attend. They may have heard misinformation that all alcohol treatment programs are residential or in-patient, but this is simply not the case.
Philippe Jacquet & Associates offers clients the option to participate in therapeutic sessions with a counsellor or psychotherapist specialising in addiction recovery. These sessions can be conducted online using Skype, or we can arrange for a therapist to come to Nairobi and provide services in-person.
By participating in treatment through our Skype or in-person services while staying at home clients are able to take advantage of their natural support network. They can be involved in the lives of their family and children, which is often a very powerful motivator to remain sober.
Unlike traditional types of alcohol recovery and addiction programmes, Philippe Jacquet & Associates uses a bespoke method of treatment planning.
This means that each client will have his or her own specific treatment plan that is unique to their personal needs and goals. Our therapists and counsellors have years of experience in working with clients facing all types of addiction. They are able to pull from various treatment options and programmes to develop the right match for each client.
Additionally, our programmes will not just address the symptoms of alcohol abuse. Often, people with an addiction have other issues as well that may be triggers for the addiction. Depression, anxiety, childhood abuse or trauma can all trigger addictions and these underlying issues have to be treated to allow the patient to heal and change their coping mechanisms.
