Whatever your situation may be, here at Addiction Advocates, we can offer guidance, we can offer professional insights, we can offer referrals into rehab. To gauge where you stand with drugs and alcohol, to understand the necessity of professional withdrawal services, to appreciate the deteriorating cycle of addiction, reach out to our team.

Sometimes acknowledging your addiction can be the hardest part of your recovery, but it’s the most important step to take. If you’re growing concerned with your dependance on a substance, or you’re concerned for a loved one, you should seek professional help.

Here at Addiction Advocates, we can provide you with the first step you need to become clean and sober. We recommend seeking help as soon as you can, as there are many negative health implications that can arise from substance misuse that can stop you from leading a normal life. Even if you feel fine, if you continue with your addiction it’s likely that your health will deteriorate over time.

We can provide alcohol and drug detox clinics to help you overcome your addiction, alongside therapy treatments to tackle your triggers and dependancy. Our comprehensive treatment programmes are available as residential or outpatient options, but we would always recommend residential rehab in Preston.

Rehab with professional help is much more effective than trying to achieve sobriety at home, so give us a call today and let us help you take that first step to a life free from drugs and alcohol.

How do I know I need rehab?

Admitting to addiction can be extremely difficult, so knowing when to seek help can seem impossible. There are, however, signs that you can look out for such as; deteriorating health, struggling with withdrawal; which just leads to further consumption, or if you cannot go 24 hours without a drink. If you experience any of these symptoms you should seek professional help straight away.

Addiction is defined as something you do that you have no control over and which causes you harm. It can be fuelled by stress and mental health issues and can quickly take over your life. If left untreated you can become isolated as your relationships breakdown, you could lose your job, friends and family could disappear and your negative mood fuels your consumption further.

At our rehab centres in Preston we can help you face your addiction and help you understand the triggers in your life, to enable you to take back control. Every treatment program is personalised, as addiction is always unique to the individual, which is why we offer a variety of treatment options at our rehab centres.

Rehab in Preston

We have rehab centres located across the whole of the UK, and as addiction rates rise so does the demand for our centres. If you are based in Preston, or you live further afield and want to escape your everyday environment, we have rehab centres in Preston that can offer comprehensive treatment options.

We always favour residential treatment programmes over outpatient programmes, simply due to the fact that our residential treatment programmes are more comprehensive; offering a combination of physical and psychological treatment options. Another advantage of staying at one of our centres is that you can focus purely on your recovery without being tempted by any negative influences. Our centres provide calm and supportive environments, designed to make you feel at home and relaxed. With high quality facilities, meals every day and all services at the centre, you can focus for 28 days on yourself.

To start your journey to recovery we offer a free and confidential pre-admission assessment. Our friendly team will discuss your addiction, lifestyle and medical history with you and advise on the best treatment options for you.

What are the benefits of rehab?

To achieve long term recovery you will need professional support. Since addiction effects both your physical and psychological wellbeing, you will need a combination of detox and therapy to successfully compete drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

It can be beneficial to check-in to residential rehab for 28 days to take yourself away from negative influences in your life. Alongside this, medical supervision is often required for alcohol or drug detox, as the withdrawal symptoms can become serious depending on the length and severity of your addiction. For this reason alone, we would strongly advise attending rehab at a dedicated clinic, rather than attempting anything at home.

Even when you have completed your recovery at a rehab clinic, your recovery is not over. For some, the hardest part is going back home and maintaining sobriety in your home environment. When you complete your treatment program at one of our rehab centres in Preston we will provide you with after care support to help you achieve long term recovery and avoid relapse.

What can I expect from rehab in Preston?

All of our treatment programmes at rehab clinics in Preston are personalised to suit your needs. However, each program will include two main treatments; detox and therapy.

Detox is always conducted under the supervision of our medical professionals, as it can be dangerous depending on the length and severity of your addiction. The withdrawal symptoms you experience will depend on your substance misuse and will be closely monitored. Before you start your detox our medical team will asses you and create a schedule which will allow for detox to commence at a safe pace, to slowly rid your body of the substance.

Therapy is combined with detox to give you a greater understanding of the underlying causes of your addiction and help treat any mental health issues that have arisen as a result of your substance misuse.

Therapy treatments available include; cognitive behavioural therapy, group therapy, motivational therapy and individual therapy. The therapy prescribed for you during your rehab treatment will depend on your assessment.

At our rehab centres in Preston you will be provided with round the clock support, quality facilities and a Relapse Prevention Plan upon successful completion of your drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

When you leave, we’ll provide support whilst you settle in at home. We’ll help you find local support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, and provide advice and guidance to help prevent a relapse.

We recommend residential treatment options as they will provide you with comprehensive support and treatment that covers both the physical and psychological impacts of addiction, to better equip you for life outside the centre.
