To access a drug and alcohol rehab in Golborne and to begin treatment, an admissions process will firstly need to be completed. Not only is an admission beneficial for the level of support that you’ll receive, but it’s also the moment where your needs will be respected and accounted for.

Before beginning your journey alongside a rehab clinic, a personal programme will be formed for you. This programme will accommodate your needs, addiction type, and expected recovery goals to ensure that rehab is both safe and effective.

Although rehab is the most beneficial process linked to addiction recovery, it performs to its greatest when individual programmes are offered. You can expect this level of care and quality via your local CQC registered rehab clinic, which we can help you access.

At Addiction Advocates, we’re equipped to guide you, support you, and refer you to private rehab. Through our services, you can ensure that all recommendations around your rehab timeline, treatments and structure are suitable.

Reach out to begin the admissions process, helping you take immediate action.

Accessing drug and alcohol rehab

Your admission into rehab can start today or as soon as you’re ready. Via our professional guidance, you’ll be able to access drug and alcohol rehab at the right time for you. We can assist, whether that’s immediate, within the next 24 hours, or following an arranged date.

Starting over the phone, we will assess your drug and alcohol consumption levels, along with asking some personal questions about your health and addiction history. You’ll also have the chance to ask any questions about rehab.

Getting to know you will make sure that we understand your needs and the type of rehab programme that will work best for you. Via a CQC registered clinic, we will search for a drug and alcohol rehab in Golborne to accommodate your needs.

Once you’re ready to access rehab, an admission date will be set, your programme will be formed, and your time to recover will begin. By reaching out, we can prepare you for rehab, all through our confidential and compassionate services.


How long does rehab last?

Several factors will affect the length of rehab. Some will be addressed throughout the admissions process to ensure that you have enough time to dedicate to rehab and select the most suitable programme based on that.

The average inpatient rehab programme lasts 30 days. To experience a short yet intense programme, you’ll need to check into a drug and alcohol rehab in Golborne. Everything you’ll need to recover and live for those 30 days will be available through a residential stay.

If you’re looking to recover from home by completing an outpatient programme, rehab is a longer process. It can usually take months to complete, all depending on how clients respond and progress. The flexibility of outpatient rehab is beneficial for some, whilst it can be challenging for others.

It’s essential to consider the above commitments when completing your admissions process. By doing so, you’ll know what to expect from the timeline of your chosen rehab programme.

The amount of support you require, your chosen rehab clinic and the severity of your addiction can also impact the length of your bespoke programme. Yet, recommendations will always be the most productive for your recovery journey.

Both programmes will require ongoing efforts post-rehab, as recovery is a long-term commitment.


Detox and treatment programmes

Through private rehab, treatments are safe and of the highest quality possible. Treatments must be effective to drive recovery throughout the rehab process. You can expect this level of consideration and quality via your chosen rehab clinic, offering a personal treatment programme.

Within your programme, detoxification will be encouraged to withdraw from drugs and alcohol safely. A medically assisted detox will be completed, offering a reassuring process, helping to minimise withdrawal symptoms.

Therapy will also be included within your programme to work through the emotional effects of drug and alcohol abuse. Addiction impacts behaviours, actions, and feelings. It also affects the brain and how it responds on an everyday basis. Mental health therapy and rehabilitation is recommended to reduce such impacts and change everyday responses instead. Effective therapy options include dual diagnosis treatments, cognitive behavioural therapy, group therapy and motivational therapy.

When forming your treatment programme, your health, outlook, symptoms, triggers, and influences will all be considered. For more information on each treatment option, contact our team at Addiction Advocates.


Post-rehab planning

It’s vital to plan, as addiction recovery will cause some changes. To embrace those changes and remain sober, relapse prevention planning will be encouraged. Planning for post-rehab life will also be a focus through private rehab.

Alongside a dedicated team, you’ll form a personal plan which is sustainable through any possible risks. It will offer preventive measures, it will help to reduce the impacts of high-risk situations, and it will also provide guidance through the signs of relapse.

Returning to life in Golborne may trigger some old cravings or emotions linked to drug and alcohol abuse. Planning for such risks will be invaluable.


Aftercare in Golborne

Aftercare is a service of private rehab, following on from either inpatient or outpatient treatment. It offers an element of support whilst adapting to a new drug and alcohol-free lifestyle.

Via your chosen drug and alcohol rehab in Golborne, you’ll be able to access 12 months of free aftercare. Support groups and therapy sessions will usually be offered throughout those 12 months to help you through any challenges or celebrate any milestones.

Every step of private rehab can be accessed by reaching out here at Addiction Advocates. The most suitable rehab programme will follow, ready for your admission.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does substance abuse and mental illness affect each other?
Yes, both are known as co-occurring disorders. Heavy abuse of drugs and alcohol is directly found to deteriorate mental health. Mental illness is known to result in drug and alcohol exposure, as a coping strategy. Both are deeply linked and can create greater damage through a dual diagnosis.
What is dual diagnosis?
A dual diagnosis is where both mental health problems, and drug and alcohol issues are found. Both are found to activate one another, whilst aggravating symptoms and effects. In the event of a dual diagnosis, specialist treatment should be completed, to reduce substance abuse and improve mental health.
Is alcohol addiction considered a mental illness?
Addiction as a whole is a brain disease, heavily linked to relapse. It affects the same part of the brain as mental illness, found to display similar symptoms and changes. Both are linked as dual diagnoses, important to separate and treat.
