Drug and Alcohol Rehab Treatments in Deal

Making the decision to undertake drug rehab or alcohol rehab isn’t an easy choice and many people do not believe that they are capable of taking this step. But undergoing rehabilitation is one of the most vital things that you can do in order to overcome your drug addiction or alcohol addiction.

Many of our clients tell us of their attempts to go “cold turkey” only to be unable to stick to their attempt for longer than a few days. Relapse prevention is practically impossible.

The problem with a sudden break from substances is that it does not fully address the reason you have become addicted in the first place. All it does is address the access you have to substances and you can just as easily reverse this.

It does not deal with the reasoning behind your addiction and establishing this fact is a key part of your therapies when you are treated by Addiction Advocates. Drug and alcohol rehab treatment in Deal will discuss the cause and provide a safe environment for you to recover.

Residential rehab is undoubtedly a big commitment and 28 days away from your life may seem like an overwhelming amount of time. But this allows focused treatment and for you to be free of the distractions and temptations that life can bring. Private drug and alcohol rehab is not the cheapest solution but we will work with you and arrange suitable treatment within your budget.

 

Why did I develop an Addiction?

There is no simple answer to this question. Addiction can hit any kind of person from any walk of life, but even knowing the answer would not suddenly cure your drug addiction or alcohol addiction. There is no golden moment in a therapy session where a spotlight shines and all is revealed. But knowing the reason you developed an addiction is an important part of your rehabilitation and therapies.

You may already be aware of the reason – you may be able to relate to grief, trauma or come from a family with a history of addiction. It’s not that easy for everyone suffering with a drug addiction or an alcohol addiction. There may be underlying mental health conditions that have not been diagnosed. Instead of seeking help for it, some people self-medicate by taking alcohol or drugs to excess. This only serves to worsen the problem and makes it more difficult to treat as a dual diagnosis will be required.

 

How Rehab works

When you first arrive at Addiction Advocates, we’ll perform a thorough examination of your physical and mental health. The majority of our clients require a period of detoxification. Whichever substance you’re addicted to, you’ll need a detox to flush your body of harmful toxins.

A detoxification is an unpleasant experience and you will experience withdrawal symptoms owing to you breaking the pattern of your regular drug or alcohol use. Our medically trained staff are on hand to monitor your progress and ensure your safety during this difficult time. We can offer prescription medication to alleviate your withdrawal symptoms if required. Your access to substances will be tapered away in order to try and make the process as easy as possible.

When your detox has been completed, which can take up to two weeks depending on the levels of your addiction, you will begin your therapies. We offer therapy on an individual and group basis.

During one to one sessions, which you’ll have with an addiction counsellor, you can freely discuss your drug addiction or alcohol addiction, the effects on your life and how you can move forward. You will be able to develop an understanding of your addiction and this will allow your therapist to help you to change how your mind works in relation to addictive behaviours and how to develop better habits.

In support group sessions, you will be able to talk to your fellow recovering addicts and you will be guided as a group to discuss your stories and offer your support to each other. This is a difficult experience for some at first as openly discussing your addiction in a group setting probably isn’t something you’ve experienced before. However, most people take to it quickly.

As part of your aftercare, we recommend that you join a local support group to continue sharing experiences.

 

Addiction Advocates have Rehab available now.

Upon completion of your therapies, your time in our residential rehab will be at an end and we will work together with you to compile an aftercare plan. This is essential to ensure there is relapse prevention in place. There is no one moment where recovery is completed, it is a lifelong journey and you will be tested in the year after your rehab, where you are statistically at your most vulnerable from suffering from a relapse.

However, you will have our full support varying from follow up sessions to a 24-hour helpline and you will have our help whenever you need it.

We understand that asking for help is hard, but your recovery will only get easier from that point. So please contact Addiction Advocates today 0800 012 6088 or text HELP to 83222 and let us help you to begin to fight addiction without delay.
