Seeking Treatment For Your Addiction
Addiction is defined as a repetitive behaviour that you continue to undertake despite it causing you harm. The repetition forms habits, which entangle themselves around your way of life.
Soon, all you can see is your addiction. Relationships break down, jobs are often lost and in extreme cases death is the outcome.
The hardest step for any addict is admitting to the addiction. Once you’ve moved past your denial you’re ready to seek treatment for your addiction. It’s imperative that you’re fully committed to your recovery, otherwise relapse is inevitable.
Finding the right drug and alcohol rehab in Hounslow may seem like a daunting task, due to the amount of available services.
However, we strongly recommend, unless you have a well established support network at home, that you seek residential addiction treatment, that’ll tailor your treatment to aid both your physical and psychological wellbeing.
Private drug and alcohol rehab may seem like an expensive choice, but compared to the cost of sustaining your addiction, its most likely the cheaper option and will help you maintain long term recovery.
Why Choose Addiction Advocates?
Located a stones throw from Hounslow, we have a drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre located in Hayes. Alternatively, you may prefer to receive your treatment further afield.
Before you’re admitted to one of our private drug and alcohol rehab centres you’ll undergo an initial assessment, whereby our specialist team will discuss with you your addiction, lifestyle and medical history.
This’ll help us to advise you on the best possible treatment options for you, personally. Once you’ve chosen a centre, we’ll organise, with you, an admissions date.
Designed to provide therapeutic environments, comfortable living quarters and 24 hour support, our centres will make you feel at home and fully supported throughout your stay.
Upon arrival, you’ll receive a tour of the facilities and the grounds to ensure you can make the most of the amenities. Both physical and psychological symptoms will be treated and your stay will typically last for 28 days.
Before your treatment programme begins you’ll undergo a full medical assessment, whereby our medical professionals will asses your physical and psychological health. This assessment will help to determine your treatment programme, which is fully tailored to suit your needs.
Since we have patients that arrive still under the influence, detox is always the first step in any treatment programme. Without a clear head, therapy will not be effective.
Detox, usually lasts for just a couple of days, but can vary. Our specialist team of medical professionals will work with you to slowly reduce your consumption levels until your body is clear from the substance. You’ll be monitored throughout the process and will have access to round the clock care and support.
During detox many patients will suffer from withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms are caused by your body’s reaction to the reduced levels of substance consumption.
It’s worth noting that the longer you sustain your addiction and the more you consume, the stronger your withdrawal symptoms will be, as you’ll have built up your body’s reliance on this substance to function. However, with our expert team on hand to guide you, you’ll be made to feel comfortable through this process and prescription drugs are on hand where necessary.
Your therapy programme will usually consist of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and motivational sessions. CBT will help you to identify the root causes of your addiction, the habits they have formed and your own triggers. With this knowledge we’ll work with you to develop coping strategies to help you maintain your long term recovery.
Motivational sessions are usually included within the programme to help you build your self-worth and self-esteem, without which you’ll rely on substance misuse, or other negative habits to make yourself feel good.
We strongly believe in building support networks to help aid your recovery, which is why we encourage the interaction between patients. Group sessions are encouraged as are other sociable activities during your stay.
Leaving drug and alcohol rehab Hounslow after 28 days can seem like a daunting prospect, especially considering that most relapses occur within the first 12 months of sobriety.
This is why we offer many different aftercare packages to help equip you with drug and alcohol relapse prevention plans.
Building your own support networks is integral for long term recovery and we’ll introduce you to your local support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics. Often this peer support can help you through the difficult times.
We can also help you reestablish your relationships and rebuild your life after leaving rehab.
If you’re ready to leave the denial behind and commit to full, long term recovery, we’re here to help. You can call our friendly and supportive team for a free initial consultation.
We’ll discuss your addiction, lifestyle and medical history, and guide you through the available treatment options for you.
Remember, there’s no time like the present, and even if you feel you have your addiction under control, it will only get worse.
