Treatment options in Acton

There are various forms of addiction treatment, in place, to suit individual needs. All addiction diagnoses differ. The effects of drug and alcohol problems can also vary, from physical, psychological, social, and financial standpoints. Due to this, an accommodating programme will be important to select, to treat your personal experience and symptoms.

NHS treatment services are one of the most popular, helping people in recovery with low budgets, the inability to invest in recovery, and for those who can wait. Care, compassion, and quality is high across the NHS. Yet the downfall is the waiting lists which are attached to all free treatment programmes, due to demand.

For someone who’s struggling with an addiction, delays can be very disruptive. Avoided through private rehab, recognised as another sought-after treatment option, treatment can be paid for. Catering to individual budgets and timelines, private rehab is flexible, meaning that it is an accessible option. Treatment can be immediately accessed, can be completed privately and consistently, and can be personally beneficial. Yet all for a cost, finding the funds for private rehab will be important.

Weighing up your needs, against the delivery, experience and success rates of each treatment option will be worthwhile. By doing so, you’ll find reassurance in either NHS care or the services of a private drug and alcohol rehab in Acton.


Finding treatment through private rehab

At Addiction Advocates we can assist you towards your journey via private rehab. Offering a handheld approach, we’re here to help you find and experience the highest quality of care possible through a CQC registered clinic.

With an affiliation of UK based rehab clinics, we will assess your needs and make sure that they can be respected and delivered through the most suitable option. Recommendations will take place post-assessment, making sure that your location, budget, and availability are considered. We will also assess your health and wellbeing, and addiction type, to gauge the level/type of treatment that you’ll need.

Throughout the admissions process, we will also be available to offer advice on how to move forward and prepare for rehab, along with deciding on the right programme for you. A referral can offer access to inpatient rehab and outpatient rehab. Depending on how soon you hope to recover, your funds and the intensity of your addiction, a recommendation will be made.

Mostly, inpatient rehab is encouraged as it’s a 28-day programme full of support, treatment, education, and change. Offering a recovery-designed environment, 24/7 care, and an intense approach to recovery, great success can be achieved. Yet based on your needs and lifestyle, outpatient rehab may be the most suited option, which we will consider.

Your decisions will turn into arrangements, to visit or check into private rehab for your recovery journey.


How to withdraw from drugs and alcohol?

Withdrawal should be a medically assisted process. As drugs and alcohol will be eliminated from the body, withdrawal symptoms can arise. They can display physical and psychological symptoms, which can be very difficult to work through without detox medications and supportive therapies.

Private rehab will offer a safe detoxification process, to work through, in order to withdraw. Over 7-10 days, drugs and alcohol will be eliminated, by cutting off all consumption. Post-withdrawal, cravings can be reduced, the body can be stabilised, and the recovery process can continue, towards sobriety.


Psychological, emotional and mental recovery

A comprehensive programme will be available to complete via a drug and alcohol rehab in Acton. This will mean that psychological, emotional, and mental recovery will be aimed for, alongside detoxification.

Through a range of treatments and therapies, designed to treat addiction, emotional stability and mental health can be improved. The psychology behind addiction can also be worked through, to disconnect and to change outlooks.

Habits are driven by behaviours, thoughts, and attitudes. By working through therapy and supportive tools, habits can adapt to positive and healthy actions, overcoming drug and alcohol abuse.

Recovery can be aimed for through cognitive behavioural therapy, dual diagnosis treatments, stress management, group therapy, family therapy, relapse prevention planning and lifestyle management.


12 months of local aftercare

Aftercare is offered to every client here at Addiction Advocates. Starting directly after rehab, 12 months of local aftercare will be available.

Found to reduce relapse risks, offer direction, provide advice through any challenges, and offer a sense of unity and accountability, aftercare services are effective. Over the first 12 months of recovery, it can be difficult to remain on track. Support groups and therapy sessions will be arranged to provide a structure and to avoid any disruptions.

Although it’s possible to experience treatment through different resources and services, private rehab is a strong recommendation for its benefits and ability to change lives. We promote this here at Addiction Advocates, offering the highest level of quality possible through recovery. Experience a quality programme via a drug and alcohol rehab in Acton, accessible through our affiliation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is an addiction so difficult to recover from?
An addiction attacks both the body and brain. It can also impact all aspects of life, from relationships to behaviours.

It’s not only an ingrained condition, but it’s also prone to relapse, standing as an extremely vulnerable mental illness.

It takes a lot to recover from addiction as it is such an impactful diagnosis to have. Habits will need to be changed, internal functionality will need to be reverted, and a range of sustainable coping strategies will need to be learnt.

Through drug and alcohol rehabilitation, it is possible to recover from addiction. Yet full commitment and an open mind must be present throughout the process of long-term recovery.
How to deal with withdrawal symptoms?
Withdrawal symptoms are a direct response to the detoxification process. They represent shock, as drug and alcohol levels are reduced. Both the body and brain can be impacted by withdrawal, displaying symptoms such as anxiety, cravings, nausea, and irritability.

Working through symptoms both comfortably and safely is possible through private rehab. Yet dealing with them alone can be very difficult. It will take a range of treatments, detox medications and support to work through withdrawal, only available through rehab.
Can addiction be cured?
Unfortunately, it’s unrealistic to aim for a cure. As addiction can relapse so easily, it’s instead encouraged to aim for sobriety, maintenance, and long-term recovery. Relapse risks can be controlled, as can a fulfilled sober life. Working through rehab and implementing the tools of recovery will be important at this point, to withdraw and overcome drugs, alcohol, and their addictive traits.
