The simple answer to the question is yes. Any professional help or treatment you can get to make your detox from alcohol work is beneficial. Many people don't know that alcoholism is a disease and that it can be treated with medical help. There are many treatments available, including outpatient alcohol treatment centres.
When, and only when an alcoholic has decided that enough is enough and that they want to become clean will they be in a position to seek help. Studies have shown that someone who has been pressured into giving up alcohol by a third party rarely get fully clean and will relapse. This is also where an alcoholic treatment centre will be beneficial as they can give you advice on the best way to proceed with your treatment and they can point long term alcoholics in the right direction and get them to see their GP who will advise them the next step forward.
Most alcoholics when coming of drink will experience mild to moderate withdrawal and the good thing is that most of these symptoms can be treated at an outpatients alcoholic treatment centre but if you experience severe withdrawal from alcohol then an inpatient treatment centre would be the best option.
