Picking A Drug And Alcohol Abuse Centre

As more and more people are currently relying upon publicly funded institutions for healthcare due to current events, getting treatment for addiction through a service such as the NHS may leave you with a massive period of waiting around before you can get treatment. Also, with the current UK government slashing much-needed funding to public institutions this situation is unlikely to improve any time soon.

The longer that you wait around when it comes to getting your drug and alcohol treatment, the more your resolve to recovery will weaken — thus lessening your chances of successfully overcoming your drug or alcohol addiction.

Our admission process is quick and easy. Once you reach out to us, our helpline staff will ask you a short series of questions which will inform your personalised treatment plan (we specifically tailor each programme to each individual who uses our services) and then you will be ready to start attending one of Addiction Advocates’ residential drug and alcohol rehabs.

How Rehab Works

When you have arrived at your chosen drug and alcohol facility you will go through a series of individual and group-based psychotherapies. These psychological therapies and treatments will make sure that, along with our therapist’s guidance, locate the initial reason as to why you have ended up manifesting a drug and/or alcohol addiction.

Treatments that will enable us to do this include the likes of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), family drug support counselling, one-to-one therapy, group therapy, and much more.

Dual-diagnosis treatment will also play a large part in your treatment. Dual-diagnosis therapies involve using more standardised mental health treatments in tandem with addiction treatment so that we can treat any underlying or concurrent mental health issues that you are also struggling with — such as depression or social anxiety.

Family intervention can also be integrated into some treatment plans in instances where the individual struggling with substance abuse wishes to repair fraught relationships with loved ones or has internalised familial issues which we can resolve.

Before you undergo physiological treatments, however, our therapists will need to make sure that you’re in the best possible physical state for recovery.

Medically Assisted Detox

Detoxification is a process that can strike fear into the hearts of many addicts. However, thanks to the fact that Addiction Advocates’ drug and alcohol treatment centres are equipped with state-of-the-art detox clinics, we can help you through this process safely and in the best possible comfort.

Alcohol withdrawal and/or drug abuse withdrawal both cause individuals to experience side effects such as nausea, vomiting, heart palpitations, hallucinations, and much more. As such, it is important to have the support of a medical professional when going through withdrawal, medical professionals such as those who work at our detox clinics.

Relapse Prevention Programmes

While a lot of drug and alcohol treatment plans become solely focused on getting their clients clean, our clinics spend a large portion of our time also ensuring that our clients have the mental and physical tools needed to remain clean!

In tandem with the psychiatric addiction treatments mentioned above, our therapists and addiction specialists will work tirelessly with you in order to help you work out strategies that you can fall back on if you ever feel as though you’re thinking of using again when living your post-rehab life. Most commonly, a relapse prevention plan can involve finding the stress management techniques that you personally respond best to and teaching you to identify potential triggers so that you know when to fall back on these techniques.

As mentioned previously though, you will not be alone when you leave our facility. Our aftercare programme is designed to provide support for the first 12 months of you leaving our facility, all completely free of charge.

Frequently Asked Questions

How beneficial is group therapy?
Group therapy has been a mainstay of addiction treatment for years now, and the reason behind that is quite simply that it works. Group therapy allows people to share their experiences, or even to simply listen to how others in similar situations have succeeded, all in a cathartic environment.
What happens after rehab?
Quite simply, you go home and start living your life. However, you not only have the benefit of our aftercare package, but during the course of your therapy, we will have helped you to identify which aspects of your daily life were contributing to your addiction. And, with the benefit of this knowledge, you can start living your life how you want to live it, not how your addiction wants you to live it.
What are the signs and symptoms of addiction?
There are a myriad of signs and symptoms of addiction, but the most common is a seemingly endless need to consume more of a substance regardless of the detrimental effects it is having on you. For more information about the signs of addiction consider talking to one of our helpline staff on 0800 012 6088.
