Addiction Services in Norway

You must reach out to someone if you feel that your symptoms are becoming uncontrollable. Numerous psychological elements of addiction will manifest early on. These will be followed by physical symptoms that may be uncomfortable and lead to long-term health issues. Some of the symptoms to look out for are

Physical symptoms:

  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Involuntary eye movements
  • Liver problems
  • Constipation/Diarrhoea

Psychological symptoms:

  • Irritability
  • Anger issues
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Withdrawal from social tasks/daily tasks
  • Insomnia

Reaching out for help is a courageous act. Please know that you will not be judged when you call our clinic. You will be treated as a human being. We appreciate and fully understand the effects of addiction. Our job is to help you find a path towards help and rehabilitation. In Norway, it is possible to gain access simply to private drug and alcohol rehab.

This will include a comprehensive and bespoke treatment plan created by our team. It will be a 3-phase programme designed to eradicate addiction and heal the psychological elements that have led you to addiction.

A simple phone call is all it takes. We will ask you some relevant questions relating to your addiction. This in-depth but easy-to-conduct assessment will give us a detailed insight into your current state of well-being and the necessary steps that must be taken. Immediate action is often preferred, and you do not have to worry about long waiting lists with private rehab.

Public rehab in Norway is available, but there may be long waiting periods. You will not gain access to the same quality of help and support. It does not have a high success rate. Private alcohol rehab, however, has an exceptionally high success rate.


What is Drug and Alcohol Detox?

Detox is the first phase of drug and alcohol rehab that solely focuses on removing the toxins from the body. You may be familiar with the term ‘weaning’. This is essentially what we facilitate in a designated medical environment. Our professional medical team will care for you 24/7. We alleviate any withdrawal symptoms, so you will have only very minimal discomfort.

Drug and alcohol detox lasts around 7 days, and in this time, you may be given specific medications to deal with your symptoms. You will take this time to sleep, physically rest, and prepare your body for the next alcohol and drug rehab phase. All this is undertaken in a luxury setting, with home comforts, the best cuisine, and recreational activities.

You will never feel alone. Furthermore, brain clarity will become optimum after completing your alcohol and drug detox.


Therapy Treatments in Rehab

Numerous treatments in private drug rehab are offered to you. Depending on your type of addiction and its severity, we will offer you a range of therapies that we think are suitable. Counselling is a wonderful tool that allows you time to speak individually or with family and friends to address your worries, troubles, and traumas that may be debilitating. Psychotherapies will also be implemented that will tackle your mental health.

Often, anxiety and depression come hand in hand with addiction. We will help you find a more peaceful place in your mind. One particularly favourable treatment form is CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). This gives you a chance to learn about your triggers, how to mitigate the associated risks, and how to become versatile and strong in difficult moments.

You will learn to deal with these situations and be able to assess them with tricks and tips. Addiction is often caused by poor decision-making. Therefore, CBT seeks to rewire this element of your mind to assess and resolve outcomes before making any decisions. At the end of your inpatient rehab, you will speak with our time, who will give you a bespoke aftercare plan.

We constantly monitor your progress, so we know exactly what follow-up help you may need. You, too, can request assistance where you think it is needed. We want you to succeed in the following rehab, and keeping in touch and maintaining a support network offers you a very high chance of long-term success and sobriety.


How Long Are Rehab Programmes?

Rehab programmes vary in shape and form. This is because no two cases are the same. Each person comes from different walks of life. Also, there are multiple types of addiction and multiple levels of severity. During your assessment and analysis of medical files and mental health issues, we will determine the length of your stay. The standard length for rehab is 30 days. However, this may be longer or shorter, depending on what you opt for.


How We Help You

We can help you by offering you many tools to implement in your daily life. We will be able to help you create a stellar support system full of multidisciplinary teams, from counsellors to life coaches and more. The goal is to reintegrate you and have you back in the workplace, back at home or back to your studies. This effort is collaborative; that is why our teams are dedicated to making your stay not only valuable but enjoyable.

This is a period of growth. A time to escape your routine and find a route toward recovery. For more information on our services in Norway, please call on 0800 012 6088. We want to ensure that you make the best decision in the future because you can recover from addiction. It’s time to take control and start living the life that you truly deserve.
