Throughout our years of experience, we’ve seen many people lose their homes, their jobs, their friends and family, and their physical and psychological health as a result of substance abuse.

Billericay

The impact of addiction is truly devastating, more must be done to provide the necessary support to help these people create a future free from alcohol or drugs; this is exactly what we strive to achieve at our drug and alcohol rehab Billericay.

As we mentioned, addiction can devastate your finances and career prospects. By negatively effecting your physical and psychological abilities, you’re likely to begin underperforming at work as simple tasks become difficult. This could lead to a warning and ultimately to a dismissal, leaving you with a serious financial problem.

Not to mention how expensive a drug or alcohol addiction is to fuel; we’ve sadly seen many people get themselves into trouble with the law in an attempt to pay their debts and fund their drug or alcohol habit.

Addiction can cause meaningful relationships with family and friends to fall apart as you become disinterested with socialising and fixated with one thing only – your addiction. Most of the time, your loved one’s struggle to know what to do for you which can lead to conflict.

If you’re concerned about a friend or family member suffering from addiction, you can use our friend and family referral service where we can get involved in encouraging your loved one to join our all-important drug and alcohol rehab centre.

Perhaps the most noticeable impact that drug or alcohol addiction has is on your physical and psychological health. It’s always surprisingly just how quickly these toxins damage your appearance and your brain functionality.

Excessive substance abuse leaves you at much higher risk of development heart disease, liver disease, stroke, diabetes, anxiety, depression, bi-polarity, and even puts you at an increased risk of suicide. Don’t let addiction take over your life, take back control by getting in touch with our rehab in Billericay today.

 

Are you ready for Drug and Alcohol Treatment?

You might be thinking that your addiction is too mild to warrant any professional support. Or maybe you’re thinking your addiction is far too severe and beyond help? In both cases, you’re wrong. There’s no drug or alcohol addiction too mild or too severe to not accept support.

What Addiction Treatment Therapies do we offer?

It’s essential to your long-term recovery that you receive a wide variety of addiction treatment therapies. It’s long been proven that people achieve the best results when they’re following a programme which has been personalised to suit their unique needs; this is exactly what we do at our rehab in Billericay.

Whilst we tailor each programme to suit the individual, there are some highly effective therapies that we’re likely to recommend for most people suffering from an addiction to alcohol or drugs, one of which is counselling.

Counselling is a hugely beneficial therapy for most people so it’s fairly likely that we’ll integrate this into your addiction treatment programme. Counselling can be done in a variety of ways, either on a one-to-one basis, in a group setting or even with your family. Each method has its own perks, so we’ll select the most suitable therapies for your unique condition.

In addition to counselling, we also provide cognitive behavioural therapy, known as CBT, which is another highly recommended psychological therapy for those rehabilitating from addiction. CBT helps you to learn how to manage your feelings when you’re in a negative cycle and to think differently about certain things, changing your perception. Some of our other evidence-based psychological therapies include stress management, relapse prevention, motivational interviewing, and mediation therapy.

We combine the above with therapies which focus on improving your general well-being, a highly regarded method of treating drug or alcohol addiction. These well-being therapies could include yoga, self-help sessions, mindfulness, art therapy, music therapy, relaxation and sleep management, nutritional supplement therapy, massage, and meditation.

Taking care of your well-being is integral to your physical and psychological health and staying on track with your long-term recovery.

 

What happens when you leave our Rehabilitation Centre?

Upon completion of your addiction treatment, you’ll return home with the added support of our aftercare programme which is free for the first 12 months. We will provide you with a personalised aftercare programme to help with your adjustment back into life at home and to also encourage motivation and provide support as you continue your journey to long-term recovery.

As you’re back at home, you’ll be faced with more distractions and potential temptations which could lead you to a relapse which is why your first 12 months after rehab is when you’re most likely to relapse.
