Drug and alcohol addiction is a growing problem. When left untreated, it can cause accidental overdose and even death. Reaching out to a team of professionals is the best thing you can do. Not only do you feel a sense of community, but a sense of relief.
Speaking up and admitting to the problem is halfway to solving it. The rest falls into place once you enter rehab and follow the designated programme designed for your specific needs.
You should consider seeking help if you believe addiction is beginning to affect your life. Financial worries, problems at work and home, strained relationships, irritability and anxiety and depression, are often key indicators of a serious problem. You are never alone, and reaching out to Addiction Advocates will allow you to solve the problem, and heal any mental health issues that are prohibiting your recovery.
Seeking Treatment for Drug and Alcohol Addiction
Seeing out treatment is an easy step. Once you reach out to our friendly team, you will be in our care. Private drug and alcohol rehab is a comprehensive treatment run by professional teams under a strict strategy. These strategies in place will coordinate your recovery based on your needs. We appreciate that everybody has a different mental health condition that exacerbates their addiction.
We also know that spiritual health is important, which is why we approach all subjects holistically. Seeking treatment begins with talking to your family/friends and GP. Taking the next step towards recovery is to get in touch with a private rehab facility that will be able to facilitate a programme.
Learning about the types of therapies available to you and the process will help you make an informed decision. There is no pressure to come to drug and alcohol rehab, but once you have spoken to us, we are sure you will feel ready to make the step. It is important to spend time in a non-judgemental environment with people to listen and care. We break the stigmas of not just addiction but mental health. We want you to feel at home and ready to heal.
What Happens in Rehab?
Alcohol and drug rehab may initially sound daunting, but it really is a collaborative effort to restore your health. Private rehab is a residential clinic, in a luxury environment, with activities, good nutritious food, great surroundings and a community of care. Private rehab often lasts around 30 days but it may vary depending on the severity of your addiction. You will enter a three-phase programme that encapsulates a winning formula. These phases are detox, therapies and aftercare. Each dedicated phase has a vital meaning towards sobriety.
A drug and alcohol detox is a seven-day process that gradually weans you off the addictive substance. Psychological influences and physical symptoms will be alleviated at this time. There may be a few days of mild discomfort, but these quickly ease. Detox is completed in a medical environment. You will have access to a multidisciplinary team with your best interests at heart. The alcohol and drug detox simply removes the substance from your body safely. Your brain, liver and blood levels will return to a healthy and normal level.
The second phase of rehab is your psychotherapies and counselling sessions. These will be varied and focused on your personal needs. The best types of psychotherapies that we recommend are CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Art Therapy, Counselling Sessions (one-to-one and group sessions), and Family Counselling.
When combined with your 24/7 support, you will delve deeper into the reasons behind addiction and the driving forces. You will learn to reshape your mindset, and change your thought patterns and behaviours. This means in the future; you will be less likely to make the same mistakes.
Finally, an aftercare plan will be implemented when you leave us. You will have access to long-term support and care. You will have a plan that works for you, whether that is assistance with returning to work and reintegrating, or simply a mental health catchup. You can see us face to face, via the phone or on Zoom. Supportive measures will continue as long as you need them and we endeavour to make sure that you are ready to restart your life.

- Family Counselling: you can involve your family/friends with your journey. These sessions will allow you to speak with your family, identify their worries, and heal past traumas together to move forward in a positive light.
How Long Does Rehab Last?
Rehab stays can vary. They may last around 30 days as standard. However, they could be longer if you need extra time on your sobriety journey. The last three weeks of your programme will be focused on your therapies and healing your mind. This will be the main bulk of your journey, and when we feel you are ready to leave us, you will take your dedicated aftercare plan, and you will be able to continue your life in a stable and supported manner.
