If you are looking for a drug and alcohol treatment centre to overcome your addiction, the expert referral team at Addiction Advocates can help. Call us today on 0800 012 6088.

Overcoming a drug or alcohol addiction involves eliminating all of the psychological and physical dependencies that you have on the substance. It also involves addressing the behavioural issues that may have led to your addiction in the first place.

This can be very difficult if you try to quit your addiction yourself without professional help. Sometimes this may even be dangerous – especially when physical dependence has developed.

All types of drug and alcohol addictions can affect your mental health as well as your physical health. Your friends and family members will usually find the behavioural aspects of your addiction most upsetting.

In order for drug and alcohol rehab to be a success, you must be ready to make some changes. You must remain motivated and committed to these behavioural changes in the long term.

All good rehab centres offer a tailored treatment plan for every client. This means that your treatment programme is individual to you and designed to suit your specific needs. You will receive regular monitoring and progress reports throughout your recovery programme.

Detoxing in Rehab

Detoxing is an important first step in your addiction treatment. This is designed to bring an end to your physical and psychological dependencies on drugs or alcohol. In some cases, you may receive a medically assisted detox. This is where detox medication is given to you to help alleviate some of the many dangerous symptoms of withdrawal.

A detox medication is much more common in people who are suffering from addictions to things like alcohol, opiates, benzodiazepines, and barbiturates.

Medical professionals will decide whether a medically assisted detox would be beneficial for you. Either way, when you detox in rehab, you will receive around-the-clock care and support and you will be made to feel as safe and comfortable as possible during this time.

Detoxing can bring on a lot of negative withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms can be very challenging at first. However, once you push past these, you can then go on to live a much better life.

Going through your initial alcohol or drug detox will ensure that you are ready to take on the next steps in your recovery. After detox, you can go on to complete your therapies and further treatments with a clear mind and no distractions. This is why detoxing is very beneficial. In addition to this, you will also be removing all of the negative toxins from your body in the process.


Therapies in Rehab

Once you have completed your detox, you will then move on to your therapies and further treatments. There are many different techniques used for therapy in drug rehab and the type of treatment you receive will be bespoke to your depending on your personal needs and circumstances.

One-to-one sessions may include psychotherapies and talking therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy and dialectal behavioural therapy, as well as others. These can help you get to the root of your addiction and learn new ways of coping. You will also learn some valuable skills that will help you change your behaviours moving forward and avoid relapsing.

Group therapy sessions are also very common in rehab. These can take the form of talking therapies or may include other types such as meditation, art therapy, music therapy, or drama therapy. These aim to help build your confidence as well as gain new ways of thinking.

Here, you will also be able to bond with others and seek some new, exciting, healthy, and rewarding stimuli without having to rely on alcohol or drugs.


What Are the Benefits Of Private Rehab Treatments?

There are many benefits of choosing a private rehab treatment. Although it may seem like an expensive investment, private rehabs have been proven to be the best and most successful method for overcoming addictions.

You can begin your rehab treatment in a private rehab centre straight away. Other treatment options such as NHS treatments have very long waiting lists and this is not ideal for someone who is an addict.

Rehab treatment programmes are very flexible, personal, and tailored to suit your specific needs. This gives you the best possible chances of successfully recovering from your addiction and going on to live the happy and sober lifestyle that you deserve.

Private rehabs tend to offer holistic therapies such as music therapy, art therapy and many others. These types of therapies can be very beneficial to you when you are going through your recovery treatment.

Private residential rehab also offers you 12 months of aftercare for free. This is extremely beneficial as this can help to make sure that you remain free from drugs and alcohol in the long term and can help you with the transition between rehab and returning back home. Aftercare is also very helpful when it comes to relapse prevention.

Most private rehab clinics will allow your family to come and visit. So, although you may feel like you might be isolated and alone in rehab, this simply isn’t true. Often times your family are involved in some of the treatments through family therapy and this can be very beneficial if you want to repair some broken bonds. Plus, this also gives you a level of support.

When you go to private rehab, you will be away from all of your usual stresses, triggers and influences, allowing you to completely focus on your recovery. Get in touch with us today to find out more about private rehab treatments.
