What we do

Personalised Alcohol Addiction Treatment

​The Bay’s alcohol treatment program begins with a thorough assessment of your alcohol consumption and a determination of the need for a medicated detox. If a detox is required, The Bay medical team will develop a detox schedule that will make the detox process comfortable and stress free with the support of our doctor and 24-hour nursing. During this period, you will also receive supportive treatments from our team of holistic practitioners including massage and acupuncture to help reduce any uncomfortable symptoms you may be experiencing.

Once complete, the therapeutic team will work with you to help you understand the underlying drivers that are causing the drinking and your therapist will work with you on a daily basis to work through deeper emotional triggers that are causing the ongoing need to drink alcohol. Your medical and therapeutic teams will communicate daily throughout you stay to review your progress and make adjustments to your personal treatment plan where necessary.

If your alcohol consumption is causing you problems with loved ones or colleagues and you are unsure if you need support with your drinking, call The Bay’s Executive Director for an assessment and information on how The Bay can support you and your family on 0437-966-457.

How do I know I’m an alcoholic?

  • You can’t have “just one drink”.
  • You are unable to limit the amount of alcohol you consume or drink more than the recommended limit, often drinking to obliteration or to black out.
  • Your drinking puts you or others in unsafe or dangerous situations, causing you to take risks you otherwise wouldn’t, ie. driving over the legal limit
  • You isolate and drink alone, or hide your drinking from others
  • Your thoughts are preoccupied with obtaining and drinking alcohol
  • You crave alcohol or suffer with physical withdrawals, such as headaches or tremors

In many cases, frequent alcohol use can lead to strong withdrawal symptoms for people who suddenly decide to stop drinking. A common symptom of alcohol withdrawal is the Delirium Tremens, also known as the DTs. Effects of DTs may include tremors, shivering, seizures, anxiety and disorientation.

Reclaim your life

At The Bay you will be monitored and supervised by qualified medical professionals in a safe, nurturing, and respectful environment and have 24-hour nursing care available to you.

As appropriate you will receive supportive treatments from our team of holistic practitioners (massage therapists, acupuncturists), to help reduce any uncomfortable symptoms you may be experiencing.
