Getting professional help for drug and alcohol abuse at a residential rehab in Hendon might seem like a big step, but it is a step that will provide you with the best possible chance to achieve long-term recovery from substance abuse and/or alcoholism.

Conquering a drug and/or alcohol addiction involved eradicating both the physical and psychological substance dependence in the individual, while simultaneously confronting the underlying behavioural issues which have lead the individual to develop this addictive disorder.

If you try to overcome a serious addiction without any professional help then your chances of success can be incredibly slim, and it can even be dangerous due to the prospect of relapse and withdrawal without medical assistance leading to the deaths of many addicts in the past.

Even if you manage to pass through alcohol withdrawal or substance misuse withdrawal on your own, the behavioural issues which propagate your addiction will still be present and likely lead you to relapse if not addressed.

The success of recovery will often be dictated by the individual’s willingness to make the necessary changes in their life to overcome their addiction and their commitment to their new life.

The fact that you’re reading this suggests that you are in the right mainframe for recovery and have accepted the need for professional intervention in overcoming your addiction.

This acceptance is nothing to be ashamed of, rather it should be heralded as a successful first step on the road to recovery.


How Does Rehab Work?

When you commit yourself to a professional rehabilitation programme you will receive one-to-one and group therapy as a part of a carefully tailored treatment programme — at Addiction Advocates, we personally structure all of our patient’s treatment plans according to their needs and requirements.

A psychiatric evaluation will often be carried out by qualifies psychiatrists prior to your admission into our facility as well as once again when you arrive.

Our pre-admission evaluation is used to help inform how we structure your treatment programme, and all of the information you provide us with will be handled in the strictest confidence.

While there are two common forms of treatment available across the UK, inpatient treatment and outpatient treatment, inpatient treatment has a much higher success rate when it comes to treating serious addiction.

This is why Addiction Advocates specialise in inpatient treatment programmes, as we want to make sure that all of our clients have the highest possible quality of care while with us.

Outpatient treatment programmes may be available through institutions such as the NHS; however, due to recent years of underfunding on behalf of the UK government, the NHS’s facilities and resources are stretched very thin so you will likely be presented with a long waiting period before being able to get the treatment you need.

With inpatient treatment, you also have the added benefit of recovering in an environment free from negative influences where you can focus on your recovery 24/7 and receive support from medical professionals round-the-clock.

As you will be in our facility, you will also not have access to any drugs and/or alcohol so the risk of relapse is slim to none.


What Happens When You Arrive At Our Facility?

At the moment that you arrive at the doorstep of our drug and alcohol rehab in Hendon, you will likely be about to enter the phase of recovery known as withdrawal.

Therefore, after a brief physical examination, you will probably start your recovery programme off with a course of physical addiction treatment at our detox clinic.

With the assistance of a medically assisted detox programme and round-the-clock medical staff supervision, you will be able to get through the withdrawal stage of recovery in the most secure way possible.

However, it is important not to underestimate the threat that experiencing withdrawal can pose to an individual, which is why we strongly recommend that you undergo withdrawal under the supervision of our detox clinic.

Withdrawal has claimed the lives of many addicts in the past, so don’t let yourself become one of these unfortunate souls.


Psychological Treatments Will Help You Form A Successful Relapse Prevention Plan

One of the major worries for people undergoing recovery at a residential rehabilitation centre is what will happen when they return to their everyday life, and this is something that it is perfectly natural to be worried about.

However, with the help of our psychologists, medical therapists, psychiatrists, and professional care workers, we will help you to form a relapse prevention plan which will make the transition back to everyday life as easy as possible.

This will be achieved through the administration of treatments such as dual-diagnosis treatment, family drug support counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), nutritional and neurobiological therapies, and much more.

All of our psychological therapies will be geared towards helping you to unearth and overcome the underlying cause of your addiction, and then prepare you for a life without the spectre of addiction hanging over you.

Getting clean is a vital step, but it is also important to prepare you for life once you are clean, as that is when you will start to enjoy your life once more.

A part of this process will be finding new outlets for you, where once you turned to substances for a release we want to help you find a healthier alternative to replace substance abuse.

Holistic therapies can be integral to this idea, and so we will often encourage our clients to also participate in such therapies as art therapy, music therapy, stress management classes, NAD+ brain restoration therapy, satori chair therapy, exercise around the grounds, reflexology coaching, guided meditation, and much more.

And finally, once you have completed your course of treatment with us, we will also provide you with access to our complimentary one-year aftercare programme.

This aftercare programme, combined with your already manifested relapse prevention plan, will put you in the best stead for staying clean and enjoying the rest of your life in the best possible way.
