What to Expect at Rehab Clinics Milton Keynes
While rehabs can differ place to place, there is an overall skeleton of the rehab process that stays the same more often than not. For our in-patient partnering rehab centres, this is the route that you will typically take from admission to aftercare.
Stage 1: Pre-admission Assessment & Admission Date
If you are ready to experience the true value of rehab, we are here to assist your search, selection and admission process. By firstly understanding you as a person, your current relationship with drugs and alcohol, and your overall health.
With this level of information, we can provide realistic recommendations that are best fitted to you.
It is very important that we work around your personal needs, this pre-admission assessment is not an interrogation, it is an informal conversation and something you should be proud of joining. We understand how much courage it takes to make contact with help, which is why we never want you to feel any pressure during this call.
You can speak candidly with us, that is exactly what we’re here for.
Ultimately, the more information we have on who you are, the better. We will do all we can to make the process of pre-admission to turning up to rehab on day one as streamline as possible, so following this assessment, and when you’re ready, we will choose the right rehab and set an admission date – together.
Stage 2: Detox and Rehabilitation Treatment
The second stage of rehabilitation is the detox and rehabilitation stage. While not everybody requires a detox, all will still require rehab which includes a range of treatments.
The detox stage, if it applies, includes a 7-10 day detox, this will include round the clock care with the prescription medication to help you manage the withdrawal symptoms during your stay. Physical detoxification will commonly mark the beginning of rehab, helping your body cope through reduced levels of drugs and alcohol.
This can be intense, which is why we have medical staff to help you through the process. Once this is over, you will move onto the rehabilitation stage which is when you will go through a range of therapies.
(We’ll talk about some of the therapies to expect and the duration of rehab a little later).
Stage 3: Aftercare Post Rehab in Milton Keynes
Experiencing the value of drug and alcohol rehab can influence positive recovery results, for those who commit themselves to the process. Yet, the aim is to maintain sober living, to experience long-term recovery, and to avoid relapse.
To help you with this transition, aftercare services are a part of our partnering rehabs treatment programmes. While aftercare can vary from rehab to rehab, most will offer a long term commitment.
For example, one of our top partnering rehabs, Asana Lodge offers 12 months of free aftercare once you have left their facility. Including therapy sessions once a week, you can experience this value by visiting one of our recommended drug and alcohol rehab in Milton Keynes.
Types of Drugs Treated in Rehab
When you’re referred to a drug or alcohol rehab Milton Keynes, there are a range of drugs that are treated besides alcoholism.
Some of the most common drug addictions include the following.
Alcohol addiction, also known as alcoholism, requires specialised treatment. Rehab for alcohol addiction typically involves a combination of medical, psychological, and behavioural approaches. Detoxification is often the initial step, which helps individuals safely withdraw from alcohol under medical supervision before moving onto a range of therapies.
In some cases, medications may also be prescribed to assist with alcohol cravings and reduce the risk of relapse. Comprehensive alcohol rehab aims not only to address the physical aspects of addiction but also prepares you for the world to come after rehab and potential triggers.
Behavioural therapies are essential components of treatment when it comes to cocaine addiction. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) helps individuals recognise and change thought patterns and behaviours associated with cocaine use.
As with other addictions, support groups and counselling play a crucial role in fostering a sense of community and addressing underlying psychological issues. Additionally, therapists help individuals develop healthy coping strategies to manage stress and triggers that might lead to relapse in the future.
Prescription Drug Addiction
Prescription drug addiction, whether to opioids, sedatives, or stimulants, requires a tailored rehab approaches with caution. Often, detoxification, if necessary, is the first step to safely manage withdrawal symptoms.
Behavioural therapies like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) assist individuals in identifying patterns of misuse and developing strategies to modify their behaviours. In the case of opioid addiction, a medically assisted detox is likely the best option; this can include the likes of methadone, buprenorphine, or naltrexone with counselling and behavioural therapies to address both physical dependence and psychological aspects of addiction.
Outpatient Vs Inpatient Rehab
Choosing between outpatient and inpatient rehab depends on the individual’s needs, severity of addiction, and support system.
Outpatient rehab allows individuals to receive treatment while living at home. This option is suitable for those with a strong support network and a relatively stable living environment.
Outpatient rehab offers flexibility, allowing individuals to continue with work, school, or family commitments. Treatment typically involves the likes of:
- Therapy sessions
- Group therapy
- Educational workshops
It’s important to note that outpatient rehab might not be ideal for individuals with severe addiction or those who are in environments that trigger substance use.
While it offers more independence, it also requires a higher level of self-discipline and commitment to avoid relapse.
Inpatient rehab, also known as residential rehab, involves staying at a Milton Keynes alcohol rehab centre or drug rehab for a specific duration.
This option is best suited for individuals with severe addictions, unstable living situations, or environments that hinder recovery. Inpatient rehab provides a controlled and structured environment where you’re offered 24/7 medical supervision, a variety of therapeutic approaches, and the opportunity to connect with peers who are also on the journey to recovery.
Inpatient rehab can be particularly effective during the early stages of recovery when cravings and withdrawal symptoms are intense. However, it requires a temporary separation from daily life and commitments.
Ultimately, the decision between outpatient and inpatient rehab should be made after a thorough thought and by the help of us here at Addiction Advocates. We will help you better understand your addiction and help you to find the rehab that fits you.
