Intervention On ITV’s Jeremy Kyle Show
This episode, featuring 41-year-old alcoholic, was aired on ITV and aimed to confront alcoholics who were causing a major disruption in the lives of close family and other people around them and offer them support. In this case, the volunteer had been aggressively drinking for years and admitted to drinking 12-14 litres of cider a day. His relationship with his family had deteriorated over time to a state where his son and partner were on the verge of despair.
Rehab Guide, performed an intervention live on the Jeremy Kyle show and he subsequently agreed to enter alcohol rehab and get the help on offer. We have spent many years developing an understanding of addictions and performing many successful interventions.
This intervention on ITV had a positive impact on a person suffering from alcoholism. Subsequently, he spent four weeks at a private residential alcohol treatment centre. The team of specialists worked with him, providing him with supervised detox, counselling and therapy, and taught him the skills and motivation needed for overcoming addiction. He is now 3 months sober.
Following his stay at rehab, he highly praised the care he received, saying: “When I came to you it was the very last place on earth I wanted to be but I’m glad I did. Being shown how to become abstinent from alcohol has opened a whole new way of thinking and I am loving it. I want to thank them for their unbelievable work and effort – they are professional and committed people and believed in me the whole time.” It is extremely humbling to be able to offer this kind of support to those who need it most. This person has started to turn his life around and as part of our ongoing aftercare programme, we will continue to work with him to ensure he transforms his life to a place where he is sober and living a healthy and meaningful life.
