Admitting you have an addiction can be the hardest step to take in the long road to recovery, but once you’ve overcome that denial you’re one step closer to taking back control of your life.Canvey Island
Undertaking detoxification and participating in therapy can help you to understand your addiction and give you the opportunity for long term recovery, but if you’re not fully committed to your recovery, no amount of relapse prevention will help you.
It’s never too early or too late to seek help for an addiction, but full commitment to a life without drugs or alcohol is essential for sustained recovery.
Contact our friendly and supportive team today for a free and confidential conversation about your addiction and find out how we can help you take back control of your life.
Why seek help for an Addiction?
The linguistic roots of the term addiction stem from the notion of enslavement, which aptly defines what addiction is.
Addiction affects people both physically and psychologically. It will breakdown relationships, isolate the individual from loved ones and slowly breakdown the individuals psychological stamina.
Mental health issues such as depression and anxiety can be as much the cause as an outcome of addiction, which is why professional treatment is required to treat addiction.
Whether you’re suffering from drug addiction, alcohol addiction or a gambling addiction, here at Addiction Advocates we can help you to take back control of your life.
If your addiction is left untreated, chances are irreversible damage will occur and can lead to death.
However, if you’re thinking of going ‘cold turkey’ or giving detox a go at home, don’t do it. Medical supervision is required for any treatment, as withdrawal symptoms can become dangerous if left unsupervised.
It’s never too early or too late to ask for help, all you need is a commitment to your own recovery.
At our drug and alcohol rehab in Canvey Island, we’ll provide you with round the clock care, expert medical staff and a personalised treatment programme to help you achieve long term recovery.
What to expect from Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Canvey Island
Finding the right drug and alcohol rehab can be a daunting task. The first question you need to answer is whether you want outpatient or residential rehab treatment.
At our rehabilitation centres we provide residential treatment programmes, which mean that you’ll live onsite whilst you complete your 28 day treatment programme.
The benefit of residential rehab is that you’ll gain distance between yourself and your toxic lifestyle that drives your addiction.
With this space you’ll be able to focus solely on your recovery before re-entering your daily life again. You’ll be surrounded by dedicated, expert staff, supportive peers and facilities that make you feel at home and allow for personal growth.
Outpatient treatment can be more challenging as you’ll attend a detox clinic or therapy session during the day and the return home in the evenings and at weekends.
Although this may seem like a convenient solution, being surrounded by the negative influences that drive your addiction can cause a relapse before your treatment is complete.
Although receiving treatment locally may be the most convenient option, residential rehab is the most sustainable recovery option. Our nearest rehabilitation centres are located just a short drive away in Southend and Thurrock.
Medically supervised Detoxification
Every treatment programme begins with detoxification. It’s important that you have ac lear head for your therapy treatments, which is why detox must be achieved first.
Detoxification usually lasts for just a couple of days. Our medical team will work with you to slowly reduce your consumption levels until your body is clear from the substance.
During detox, withdrawal symptoms are quite common and usually range from headaches, to nausea, and anxiety, but in more extreme circumstances withdrawal symptoms can include; insomnia, heart irregularities and even seizures.
This is why detox must always be medically supervised, as our team of experts will be on hand to help make you comfortable and manage the symptoms throughout the whole processes.
Once your detox has been successfully completed you’ll start your therapy treatment.
The therapies we provide are designed to help you understand your addiction, its root causes, triggers and how to manage cravings and possible relapses in the future.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is the main form of therapy used. CBT will provide you with an in-depth understanding of your addiction and help you to develop more positive thought processes and habits.
Alongside CBT, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in individual therapy, group therapy, motivational sessions, meditation workshops, and a range of holistic therapy treatments designed to help heal your mind and body.
Our centres provide a comfortable and safe space for recovery and the environment that is promoted is one of community. Throughout your stay you’ll be encouraged to partake in a variety of social activities, alongside your treatment, such as quizzes and movie nights.
Combined with detox, therapy will help you to develop a more positive lifestyle to allow you to rebuild your life again.
The first 12 months after rehab are considered to be the most challenging. Most relapses will occur during these months, which is why we offer aftercare programmes for our patients.
Upon completion of your treatment programme, you’ll complete a relapse prevention plan to help prepare you to reenter your daily life again.
We understand that leaving the centre can be a daunting prospect which is why we can help you to rebuild your life and rid your daily life of any negative influences.
We’ll put you in touch with local support groups that can offer peer support through any tricky times and we can offer family counselling to help you rebuild relationships. For those in need of more intensive support, we can also offer employment advice to help you rebuild your life again.
