Alcohol Day Rehab Perth

At The Whitehaven Clinic, our team understand that dealing with problematic alcohol use and alcohol addiction can be a challenging decision. Your journey to recovery begins with finding the right private alcohol rehab centre in Perth that can tailor an individualised program for you.  You do not require a GP referral to become a client at The Whitehaven Clinic.


The Whitehaven Clinic is accredited to deliver the Addiction Recovery Process Program through its day rehab clinic in Perth. This is a comprehensive treatment program designed to identify and treat the underlying root cause of addictive behaviours and problematic use. It treats all types of addiction including alcohol addiction and problematic drinking.


Understanding Alcohol Addiction


Problematic drinking and alcohol addiction is one of the most common addictions that not only impacts yourself, but also your family, social and work life.  It can be characterised by strong cravings and loss of control over what, and how much, you consume and your continued use despite negative consequences.  You may find that your key relationships with family, friends, partner and children are starting to deteriorate as a result of your behaviours and you are suffering from depression and/or anxiety.  Other concerns may also be facing the loss of your driver’s license, or other legal issues, arising from drink driving related charges.


What is dependency versus addiction with alcohol?

Addiction encompasses a range of complex factors, including psychological, social, and neurobiological components that all contribute to the development and ongoing maintenance of addictive behaviors.


The key features of addiction include:


  • Compulsive use – unable to control their consumption of a substance or engagement in a behaviour, even when aware of the detrimental effects on their health, relationships, and overall well-being.
  • Craving and preoccupation – intense, persistent desire for the substance or behavior, accompanied by preoccupation with obtaining and using it.
  • Negative consequences – continued use despite experiencing health problems, financial strain, or legal issues.
  • Loss of control, autonomy and decision-making power – prioritising the substance or behavior above other aspects of their life.


Dependency, or problematic use, generally refers to a physiological adaptation to alcohol, or other substances, which results from prolonged use. If you experience problematic use, you may experience withdrawal symptoms when you stop using or reduce the dosage. You can be dependent on a substance without meeting the criteria for addiction.


The key features of dependency include:


  • Increased Tolerance over time – needing to drink more to achieve the desired effect.
  • Withdrawal – when you stop drinking, you may experience a range of physical and psychological symptoms, such as tremors, anxiety, nausea, or insomnia. Sometimes you will feel the need to continue to drink to overcome withdrawal symptoms.
  • Negative consequences are starting to present themselves in your life – such as relationship issues, problems at work, challenges regulating your emotions, mental health issues such as depression and/or anxiety. You may also be starting to notice financial issues are being compounded, as well as experiencing adverse impacts on your health and well-being.

The Whitehaven Clinic’s Day Rehab Program for Alcohol Addiction


The Whitehaven Clinic is Perth’s leading private alcohol rehab centre offering a comprehensive treatment program designed to address the physical, emotional, and psychological aspects of problematic use and alcohol addiction. Our carefully constructed day rehab program is tailored to meet your unique treatment needs and provides a supportive and caring environment for recovery.


Our day rehab program is specific for alcohol addiction and problematic use.

Your attendance to our program is confidential and your alcohol day rehab program is delivered one-on-one.  There are no group sessions, nor do we use a 12-step program.  Instead, we use world’s best practice in a proprietary based program that combines different treatment modalities into one comprehensive program.


All program facilitators and counsellors are accredited to use our proprietary based Addiction Recovery Process Program in our day rehab program in Perth.  Our services are delivered to ensure an excellent standard of care and professionalism.


Day Rehab Program Process

Day rehab is a structured and comprehensive treatment option designed to provide support and therapeutic interventions for you while you are struggling with problematic use, alcohol dependency or alcohol addiction.


Unlike residential rehabilitation, you will attend your appointment each day and then return home or to work, allowing you to maintain your daily routines and responsibilities while receiving the necessary support and treatment. Attendance at our Perth day rehab clinic starts daily for the first three weeks and then tapers down over a 12 – 14 week period, with an ongoing maintenance program.


If possible, we recommend that you take three weeks leave for the initial part of your program to ensure that you get the best from the program and are able to focus on your health. This is highly recommended if you are required to do a medical detox.


Addiction Recovery Programs for Family and Partners

Research shows that family and partners are an important part of a client’s support network, but they also need support and help navigating through the recovery journey for someone dealing with problematic alcohol use or alcohol addiction.


Our programs are designed to have separate family and/or partner sessions so that they can learn and develop strategies to best support you in your recovery journey.


Aftercare & Support

Recovery is an ongoing process, and aftercare support is essential for long-term success.  This is why The Whitehaven Clinic provides a maintenance and aftercare program, that includes ongoing counselling and relapse prevention strategies, to ensure continued support after you have completed a day rehab program.
