Preparing for rehab

The detoxification against drug and alcohol addiction is a way to remove the toxins from your body. Once this process is completed, you will be able to allow yourself to wean from the addictive substance.

Preparing for rehab is relatively easy, because the decision to recover has been made. Oftentimes this is the biggest challenge to overcome. Once you have achieved this, the next step is to be assessed.

Rehab may consist of medication or psychotherapy sessions. In order to prepare for this, you will have a detailed analysis from a professional team. They will assess your physical and mental health and consider the type and security of the addiction. Preparation may come in different phases.


The first step in rehab is becoming aware of your addiction. This is why admission to a detox cure is generally voluntary. You must therefore become aware of this dependent status and express your desire to change the situation. You can accept and take action.


The patient can be admitted to a facility that will assist you with numerous things. For example, treatments of all varieties that will offer you greater ease.

Physical preparation

Many people seeking recovery have decided to move away from their home town in order to get the most out of their rehab. This is a great choice to remove yourself from the toxic environment and any distractions and access to the substances in which you are addicted.

Addictions treated

There are many types of addiction and each must be treated on an individual case basis. That is what we endeavour to do with every single patient. We treat you as a human being, and offer you a great deal of care and support. We treat numerous addictions, but the most common are alcohol and drug addictions.

Alcoholism is a disease; like any other illness, a person needs alcohol rehab to prevent further problems. No treatment can cure the disease permanently which is why we believe in an excellent aftercare plan. Alcohol dependence is a major problem. It can also have very serious consequences.

It can cause liver disease and conditions as well as even death. It can interrupt your life in every single way. Alcohol addiction causes both social and financial problems.

Prescription drug addiction is also a difficult case because each patient has a different story. Sadly, sometimes tolerance to a specific type of prescription drug leads to addiction. You may realise that you need more and more of the drug to survive.

Illegal substance addiction is also a problem. This may have occurred through difficult times, poor lifestyle choices or even peer pressure. We are well aware that the reasons that lead people to addiction vary from person to person. Some of the types of addiction that are most common are:

  • Cannabis
  • Cocaine
  • Ecstasy and amphetamines
  • Hallucinogens
  • Heroin and other opiates
  • Psychotropic drugs
  • New synthetic products
  • Poppers, glues, solvents
  • Gambling

Whether you have had an addiction for one year or twenty years, there is a way to become sober once again. We appreciate that dedication and support greatly aids in recovery. If you have suffered from any of the above addictions, please do get in touch. We help a wide range of addictions, so please don’t suffer in silence anymore.

How to get help

There are several types of therapy to treat drug, alcohol or medication use problems, including alcohol. Getting help does not have to be difficult. With many inpatient programmes, you have access to 24/7 care, including all the therapy you need to move into a new phase of your life.

You can look into our clinics, to see which aligns with your emotional and physical needs. We will combat emotional dependence, depression, emotional and behavioural disorders, burnout, grief, post-traumatic syndrome, and other mental conditions that may have contributed to your addiction.

Once you have decided upon your clinic, you will have access to immediate care. You will stay in our clinic and follow a strict and successful programme to health. You will start with a detoxification, which may involve medication, and then a series of therapies. This all depends on what will suit your case best.

Types of therapy may include cognitive behavioural therapy, group sessions, individual therapy, counselling, and more. Your family and friends can be very active in your recovery, as we found this is a great way for you to rebond, if you need to, and for them to see your progress.

You will have access to dietary assistance and tips, ways to integrate back into society, and an excellent aftercare plan. This ensures that you do not feel lost or without support. You can easily find yourself worrying about your health, but with the care and support you need following treatment, there is no need to worry.
