What does Rehab involve?
Drug and alcohol rehab usually consists of two phases of personalised addiction treatment. The first treatment is detoxification, which should always be conducted under medical supervision. The second, is a range of therapies designed to help you address the psychological impact of an addiction.
Before you start any treatment you should undergo a full physical and psychiatric evaluation to assess the level of your requirements and best treatment options. All treatments should be carried out by medical professionals and qualified psychiatrists.
There are two distinct options of rehabilitation available in the UK and these are outpatient programmes or inpatient residential rehab.
The key difference between the two is that outpatient programmes are undertaken whilst living at home, whereas residential addiction treatments are only provided whilst living onsite at a rehabilitation centre.
The benefit of residential rehabilitation, over outpatient treatment, is that it allows you to recover, detox and undergo therapy in a safe and supportive environment, away from any negative influences that drive your addiction.
What can I expect at Addiction Advocates?
Rehabilitation aims to provide you with the tools needed to live a sober and meaningful life, without the need of drugs or alcohol to help you cope. At a residential rehabilitation centre, you’ll be surrounded by supportive staff and live in comfortable, homely surroundings.
Every rehab centre is different and the treatment options may vary depending on where you choose to go, so it’s important that you understand what is on offer to you before you set off on this journey.
At Addiction Advocates, we will assist you initially through a free telephone assessment, whereby we’ll discuss with you your addiction, current lifestyle and challenges and your medical history.
From this assessment we’ll be able to start offering you advice and guidance on the most appropriate treatment centres available to you.
Once you’ve chosen the rehabilitation centre we’ll organise an admission date with you, which is usually as soon as possible, and you’ll be able to start your journey to recovery.
Upon arrival at our centre you’ll undergo a full medical assessment, whereby your physical and mental health will be assessed. This will help our team of medical professionals design a treatment programme specifically for you.
Most drug and alcohol rehab programmes last for around 28 days, but can vary depending on the individual. They very rarely run shorter than this though, so it’s important that you’re committed to your recovery before attending.
After you’ve completed your treatment programme, you’ll set up a relapse prevention plan before returning home. At Addiction Advocates, we understand that the first 12 months after rehabilitation can be the most challenging, which is why we offer a variety of aftercare programmes.
Aftercare consists of guidance and support whilst you settle back into normal life, finding local support groups or continuing therapy whilst you adjust.
Treatment options in Malling
Every addiction treatment programme starts with a detox, as therapy cannot be undertaken whilst you’re still under the influence. However, once detox has been completed you’ll have a wide range of therapies to choose from.
At rehab in Malling you’ll have a range of traditional and holistic therapy treatments to choose from, each one will be provided by a dedicated and qualified therapist or counsellor. Therapy is an extremely important part of drug and alcohol rehab.
Once formed an addiction will grow, you’ll find that your consumption levels increase, to the point where you loose control, and you’ll keep consuming despite the harmful effects it has on your mind and body.
Anyone can become an addict and the causes of addiction are wide ranging, but more often we find that mental health can cause and be caused by addiction.
Anxiety and depression are the most common mental health issues we treat in relation to addiction. Being an addict is an isolating and lonely life, which is driven by the need to find that next fix, or high.
Through rehab in Malling, you’ll have the chance to undertake Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Group Therapy sessions, Motivational Workshops, Stress Management Workshops and a range of art therapies, fitness classes and social activities.
These will all help you to understand your addiction, develop a more positive lifestyle and learn coping strategies for daily life.
Every addiction treatment programme begins with a medically supervised detoxification. You cannot begin any therapy treatment until your body is free from the substance.
Drug and alcohol detox usually lasts for a couple of days, but this can vary depending on the severity of your addiction.
The reason why detox should always be conducted under medical supervision is due to the withdrawal symptoms that accompany this process. The symptoms you experience will be dependent on your addiction, but could include any of the following:
- Increased anxiety or depression
- Interrupted sleeping patterns or insomnia
- Nausea and vomiting
- Changes in blood pressure and increased heart rate
