How to Get Rehab Treatment in Ormskirk

When looking for drug or alcohol addictions in Ormskirk the 2 main options you have are outpatient treatment and inpatient treatment.

Accessing Outpatient Treatment

If you visit your local Ormskirk GP they will be able to guide you on what treatments are available locally. They will be able to give you a check up and also recommend if they think outpatient treatment will be of benefit for you.

Outpatient treatment works best for mild addictions, if you have been drinking too much or feel you are growing a dependence on a particular drug such as cocaine it is crucial you act fast.

As an outpatient, you may be offered a drug substitute such as methadone or receive counselling from local charities and support groups. This will allow you to stay in the area and continue with your day to day life.

But the drawback of this is you will be in your familiar environment whilst you try to quit your habit. If you still have friends taking drugs or alcohol in the house, it is very easy to fall short in your recovery attempt.

Accessing Inpatient Treatment

If you feel you need time away to complete a rehabilitation course we will start with a pre-admission assessment, here we will discuss your addiction, lifestyle, and medical history to determine the best treatment options for you. All treatment programmes are personalised to allow for the best chance of long term success as an inpatient.

Here you will be removed from your environment and stay in a full time rehab facility for a period of time, usually from 1 to 4 weeks depending on the seriousness of your addiction.

Our rehab centres around Ormskirk include facilities within a supportive and calming environment to make you feel at home. It is important to us and your recovery that you relax in your surroundings.

Once you have settled in you will start your treatment program. Every program will start with a detox, whereby the consumption levels in your body are reduced slowly over time. All detox programmes are conducted under the supervision of medical professionals, as this process and the withdrawal symptoms that can arise, can be dangerous. Withdrawal symptoms will vary depending on the severity and length of your addiction, which is why our team of medical professionals will work with you to create a personalised detox schedule.

What is important is not to delay this stage as it can impact on your recovery and you can spiral into deeper addiction.
