Drug and Alcohol Detox

You may be tempted to try treating yourself at home. Detox may seem like a fairly simple process, since it involves reducing your consumption levels, however you can very quickly run into complications when you experience withdrawal symptoms.

Withdrawal symptoms will vary person-to-person, since they will be dependent, not only on you, but also, of the length and severity of your addiction. Alcohol withdrawal and drug withdrawal may both include some of the following symptoms:

  • Increased anxiety and/or depression
  • Sleeping problems
  • Shakiness
  • Increased blood pressure and heart rate
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Sweating
  • Hallucinations
  • Seizures

Since you won’t know how your body will react through detox, we strongly advise that you only undertake detox when under medical supervision.

You may be apprehensive about drug and alcohol detox, in particular about at the withdrawal symptoms. This is quite normal.

Our friendly and supportive team will provide round the clock care and support to ensure that you’re comfortable throughout the whole process. Detox typically lasts for a couple of days, after which your therapy treatment will begin.

What Addiction Treatments can I expect?

To develop sustained long-term recovery addiction treatment programmes should provide with holistic treatment options, to encourage a positive lifestyle change and practices that can be blended with daily life.

Here at Addiction Advocates, we begin your treatment will a full medical assessment, whereby your physical and psychological health is assessed, which in turn, determines your treatment programme.

All of our addiction treatments are personalised to the individual, as we understand that rehabilitation is a personal journey and no two addictions are the same.

Most residential treatments will begin with detoxification, which usually lasts for a couple of days. This is then followed by a therapy treatment programme tailored to your needs.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is the most common type of therapy used to treat addiction, since it uses pshychoeductaion to help retrain your mind. Everyone develops thought patterns and habit through experiences in life

These learnt behaviours, most of the time, help us navigate the world and those around us, but in some instances they can also cause us harm.

Addicts form these negative thought processes and habits that help drive their addiction, causing an ‘uncontrollable’ feel. Through CBT you’ll gain an understanding of your addiction, its triggers and how to manage it in daily life.

Alongside CBT you can expect to receive some of the following treatment options:

  • Psychotherapy
  • Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
  • Bereavement Counselling
  • Family Therapy
  • Stress Management Workshops
  • Group Therapy Sessions
  • Art Therapy
  • Meditation Workshops

Rehab in Hornchurch

If you’re already searching for “rehab near me” then chances are you’ve overcome your denial and are ready to commit to your recovery.

Finding the right rehab for you can seem like a daunting tasks, especially since there are many options available, even for rehab in Hornchurch.

The first decisions you’ll need to make is whether you opt for outpatient or inpatient treatment. The main difference between the two is that outpatient treatment is conducted in a detox clinic and rehabilitation centre, where you attend for the day and then return home.

Whereas, inpatient treatment, or residential rehab, is conducted wholly at a rehabilitation centre and you’re required to live onsite for the duration of the treatment programme.

For many the idea of living onsite seems like a nightmare. Rehabilitation centres are often thought of as cold, clinical and prison-like spaces, where you’re locked in and not allowed to leave.

This could not be further from the truth. At Addiction Advocates, our centres work hard to create a friendly and supportive environment that you can feel at home in, and residents are encourages to explore the local area during their stay. In fact, days out are often organised by the centre.

The main benefit or residential rehab is the distance you gain from your daily life, filled with the native influences that drive your addiction. With this space you reflect on your life choices and give yourself the much needed time to focus purely on your recovery.

How long does Rehab last?

Most addiction treatment programmes last for a duration of 28 days, but it’s important to remember that choosing to recover, means a lifetime of commitment.

For most individuals 28 days provides you with the opportunity to detox from your drug and alcohol misuse, as well as undertake extensive therapy treatments. This treatment will provide you with the foundations needed to re-enter back into your daily life and make positive changes to reflect your recovery and brighter future.

If you’re addiction is particularly complex or you just find that rehab is taking longer than expected, then you may be required to stay for longer at the rehabilitation centre.

At Addiction Advocates we provide full transparency, so if an extension is required, we’ll discuss this with you and the options that we can provide.

Life after Rehab

We understand that re-entering your daily life can be a daunting use to take, which is why we offer aftercare programmes, to provide extra support for your life after rehab.

We’ll introduce you to local support group, provided family therapy when needed and offer guidance and support throughout your transition.
