If you are, at present, living in the Bermondsey area and are considering professional help in overcoming a serious drug and/or alcohol addiction then Addiction Advocates’ drug and alcohol rehab in Bermondsey may be just the thing that you need to get your life back on track.

We completely understand how daunting and unsettling the decision to commit to a course of treatment at a residential rehabilitation centre can be.

Making the life-changing decision to attend a drug and alcohol treatment programme in Bermondsey and undergoing comprehensive treatment is a large step for anyone. Although, with that being said it is a much-needed step if you’re hoping for long-term recovery.

Overcoming substance misuse addiction or alcoholism will involve therapy which will address the underlying behavioural issues which lead to your drug and/or alcohol abuse firsthand foremost, while additionally providing treatment for both the physiological and psychological dependency you have developed for a substance.

Attempting to overcome a substance abuse disorder or alcohol abuse disorder without any professional guidance/help is an incredibly difficult road to take, while also being shockingly dangerous in instances where a serious physical dependency has manifested over the duration of your addiction time.


How Do You Know That You, Or Someone You Care About, Needs Professional Help

Addiction, in its many forms and guises, can creep up on any individual at any time in life, and there is no shame in developing this illness.

However, the best thing that you can do is get professional treatment as soon as you physically can in order to put this illness behind you and get back to living your life to the fullest.

Some of the most common physical signifiers that a person is suffering from a drug and/or alcohol addiction include the likes of:

  • A lack of care when it comes to their general appearance and/or hygiene
  • Discolourations in their skin
  • Red/bloodshot eyes
  • Drowsiness
  • Fatigue
  • Slurred speech
  • Sudden fluctuations in their weight

Some of the more psychological side-effects of a serious drug and/or alcohol addiction also include the likes of:

  • Increased anxiety
  • Depression or feeling generally low
  • Burn out
  • Inability to sleep properly
  • Intense cravings for the substance that they are addicted to
  • Paranoia

If left untreated, a long-term addiction to drugs and/or alcohol can also lead to serious health complications. Liver problems, heart problems, and severe mental health issues manifesting as a result of your addiction can seriously shorten your lifespan.

Therefore, it is crucial that you do not delay in getting treatment in overcoming your addiction, and residential rehabs (such as those offered by Addiction Advocates) have some of the highest success rates when it comes to helping people overcome their substance misuse or alcoholism for the long-term.


A Successful Rehab Will Treat The Underlying Cause of Your Addiction

In order for the process of rehab to be successful in helping you to overcome your addiction, serious behavioural alterations are needed to be made through the treatments you receive.

Without addressing the underlying causes of your addiction there is little-to-no chance that you will ever move past your addiction for the long-term without relapsing.

If you are committed to the process of recovery and to moving past your addiction, then you can realise a new life free from addiction with the help of a residential rehab treatment programme.

At Addiction Advocates’ drug and alcohol treatment facilities we also specialise our treatment plans for each and every one of our clients.

Every individual who is struggling with addiction has faced their own personal traumas and demons in the development of their addiction and therefore a personalised plan of treatment should be experienced.

This uniquely personal approach to treatment is what you get with paying for a course of treatment at one of Addiction Advocates’ drug and alcohol services.


Therapy Treatments

While we cannot say what specific treatments you will benefit from during your say with us, you will likely experience a blend of some of our most commonly administered psychological treatments and therapies which will forth foundation most recovery plans.

One thing that a lot of people can be worried about when experiencing addiction treatment is the emergence of other mental health illnesses, such as depression or anxiety, which have previously been hidden beneath your substance abuse and/or alcoholism.

However, the highly-trained medical professionals and qualified therapists at our facilities are able to administer dual-diagnosis therapy. Dual-diagnosis treatment means that we can both treat your substance abuse disorder in tandem with treating any additional physiological issues that you may present with.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is also one of the most common forms of psychological therapy implemented in the treatment of serious addiction, and this is largely due to the fact that  CBT works through psychoeducation.

Through a course of CBT, you will come to determine which factors present in your life have lead you to develop your addiction.

Once we have identified these triggers and negative thought patterns, we can then work on training your brain to adopt healthier neurological pathways in the future and, in turn, help you to avoid turning to substance abuse every again.

We will bolster this notion of retraining your brain through other psychological treatments including the likes of dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), one-to-one counselling, groups therapy, grief counselling, nutritional therapy, NAD+ brain restoration therapy, satori chair therapy, and more.

A wide range of holistic therapies will also be made available to you, ranging from stress management workshops to acupuncture sessions and even mindfulness classes.

These holistic therapies will help you to learn how to de-stress in your day-to-day life and practice positive thinking as a way to avoid allowing negative thoughts to convince you to turn to substance abuse.
