Admitting to an addiction is often the hardest step to take, as you’ll find every excuse to justify your substance misuse and trivialise its effect on your life.

In reality, without professional help your addiction will isolate you from anyone that cares about you and your wellbeing and will slowly tear your world apart. Whether you’re suffering with a long-standing addiction or you’re noticing the first warning signs, we can help you.

At Addiction Advocates we have witnessed many addicts seek help, turn their lives around and maintain long term recovery from our programmes.

With drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities located a short drive from Glastonbury we can help you to rebuild your life and mend those broken relationships. All you need to do is call our free and dedicated 24 hour helpline today.


Why Choose Residential Rehab?

When looking for rehab places for drug and alcohol addictions, you may feel daunted by the amount of different services out there, or you may want to discard private drug and alcohol rehab options due to the cost.

However, with growing NHS waiting lists and standardised treatment programmes you may find that private residential care offers you the best chances of achieving your long term recovery.

We’ve put together five reasons why we believe residential addiction treatment is the best option for achieving long term recovery:

  1. Facilities are designed to provide a therapeutic environment that facilitates recovery. You’ll have distance from your daily life and negative influences that drive your addiction.
  2. You’ll be provided with 24 hour care from the medical professionals, onsite staff and peers you get to know during your stay. These resources are vital for every stage of your recovery, from detox to therapy and this support network will help you every step of the way.
  3. Supervised detox programmes are provided and tailored to suit every patient. You’ll be made comfortable during the withdrawal symptoms, with prescription drugs to help you achieve a full detox.
  4. You’ll undertake an extensive therapy programme designed to help you understand your addiction and learn real life strategies for coping with cravings and drug and alcohol relapse prevention.
  5. A holistic approach is taken to recovery, meaning we’ll help you rebuild a healthy lifestyle.


Treatment In Glastonbury

If you’re looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Glastonbury, you’ll find a range of different services available. However, most of the options in Glastonbury will be outpatient treatment options.

This means that you’ll receive treatment whilst remaining at home. You’ll attend a detox clinic or therapy sessions and return home in the evenings and at weekends.

Outpatient treatment can work and for some people is very successful, but from our experience it’s often the hardest from of rehab, since you remain surrounded by all of the negative influences that drive your addiction.

Just a short drive from Glastonbury, you can find some of our private residential addiction treatment facilities. Gain some distance from your daily life and give your mind and body a chance to recover fully.

Acting quickly is important to help you recover, which is why we provide a free 24 hour phone service for anyone thinking about rehab.

We can help advise you on the best treatment options and even provide transportation to help get you to a rehab centre as quickly as possible.


What To Expect In Rehab?

Upon arrival, you’ll receive a tour of the facilities and grounds so you can make the most of the amenities during your stay. Once you’ve settled in you’ll undergo a full medical assessment to determine your physical and psychological health.

All of our treatment programmes are holistic and tailored to the individual, which means they’ll consist of both detox and therapy treatments.

Detox is always the first step as you’ll need a clear mind to start your therapy treatment. Detox usually lasts for a couple of days, as our medical team will work with you to slowly reduce your consumption levels until your body is clear from the substance.

Withdrawal symptoms are highly likely at this stage as your body will react to the diminishing levels of drugs or alcohol in your system. The level of withdrawal symptoms you experience are dependant on the severity of your addiction, but prescription drugs can be provided where necessary.

Once your detox is achieved you’ll start your therapy treatment. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and motivational sessions are the most common forms of therapy used to treat recovering addicts. CBT helps you to identify the triggers of your addiction and develop coping strategies to maintain long term recovery.

Alongside detox and therapy, you’ll also have the chance to take part in various other activities such as fitness classes, group activities and social events, building your support network at the centre.

After 28 days most patients leave rehab and reenter their daily lives. This can seem like a daunting step to take, especially since most relapses occur within the first 12 months of sobriety.

This is why we’ll provide you with aftercare packages that you can choose from, to ensure that you have the support and advise you need to rebuild your life and relationships. We’ll work with you every step of the way with our drug and alcohol relapse prevention aftercare.
