How do you join our Rehab in Newton Abbot?

Our years of experience has shown us that the most difficult step can sometimes be the very first one that you need to take. Many of our clients found it very challenging to come to terms with the fact that they’re suffering from an addiction and require professional support.

It’s natural to try to downplay your symptoms and even be in denial about your addiction; we’ve seen many people attempt to hide their addiction from loved ones and even from themselves.

As hard as it may seem, opening up and acknowledging your addiction to alcohol or drugs to a friend, family member, or a stranger in our admissions team will begin your journey to a happier, healthier future. This is the most crucial step you’ll take to becoming sober and the best decision you’ll ever make for yourself.

Once you’ve taken that first brave step in acknowledging your addiction to alcohol or drugs, we can begin the process. A member of our friendly admissions team will take you through the various drug and alcohol services we have available and answer any additional questions you may have about our rehabilitation centre.

If you’re happy to proceed, we will invite you to a pre-screening assessment where we can review your physical and psychological well-being to ensure you’re ready to begin your addiction treatment. This is a good opportunity for us to get to know you better and vice versa.

Your drug and alcohol treatment will only be effective if you’re fully committed to turning your life around and changing your behaviours towards substance abuse. If you’re not prepared for 100% dedication, then it’s unlikely that addiction treatment will take effect.

If you feel as though you’re ready to embark on this life-changing experience, we will set a date for your admission into our rehab in Newton Abbot; this is usually within 48 hours after your initial contact with our team.

On arrival at our rehabilitation centre, we will welcome you with open arms before taking you through our induction process. We’ll ensure you’re familiarised with your surroundings and comfortable in your private room before leaving you to settle in. Soon enough, we will invite you to our detox clinic to undergo your drug or alcohol detox.


What is Drug or Alcohol Detox like?

We find that some of our clients can be quite nervous of undergoing a drug or alcohol detox. We understand that it can be an uncomfortable process, however, we wouldn’t recommend it if we didn’t feel it was so crucial to your long-term recovery.

A drug or alcohol detox truly is the most effective way to safely remove the harmful toxins from your body, allowing you to achieve a full cleanse. This cleanse is important when going into your psychological and well-being therapies as you’ll be more prepared to take in the essential information.

Our detox clinic team will be on hand to support you every step of the way. We will gradually reduce your consumption of alcohol or drugs whilst managing any drug or alcohol withdrawal symptoms which may arise as a result of your detox.

These withdrawal symptoms are very common when going through a drug or alcohol detox and can be managed correctly under the supervision of a medical team. If you were to attempt a detox at home for example, without the support of medical experts, you’ll likely suffer some serious damage as you put yourself at high risk of physical and psychological damage.

This is why it’s so crucial that you only undergo a drug or alcohol detox within the safety of a professional rehabilitation centre. Withdrawal symptoms vary between each person, but they can include mild nausea and dizziness, or the more severe symptoms of insomnia, seizures, and delirium tremens (the DT’s).

Overall, whilst a drug or alcohol detox certainly isn’t a comfortable experience, we believe it’s an essential process to achieving your long-term recovery from addiction.


What other Therapies do we offer at our Rehabilitation Centre?

To complement our drug or alcohol detox which removes your physical connection to addiction, we also deliver psychological and well-being therapies to break your mental connection to addiction and to take care of your general well-being.

This holistic approach to addiction treatment is one we’ve employed for many years now due to its success in helping our clients succeed in their long-term recovery. Some of the psychological therapies we deliver include stress management, dual-diagnosis treatment, relapse prevention, cognitive behavioural therapy (also known as CBT), individual, group, or family counselling, and motivational interviewing.

We combine these with our therapies which focus on your taking care of your general well-being which include mindfulness, yoga, art therapy, low-level laser therapy, music therapy, relaxation and sleep management, and nutritional supplement therapy.

If you’re ready to take on this challenging yet extremely rewarding experience, call us today on 0800 012 6088, text HELP to 83222 or email us at info@addictionadvocates.com. Now is the time to invest in yourself and take the first step to beginning your journey towards a life free from addiction.
