Here at Addiction Advocates, we can help you. With drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities located across the UK, we provide residential addiction treatment that treats both physical and psychological impacts of addiction.
Designed to provide therapeutic living environments with round the clock care, drug and alcohol rehab in Sedgley can help you achieve, not just one or two months sobriety, but instead, your long term recovery goals.
We understand what you’re going through as many of our staff members are recovering addicts, so alongside your treatment we can offer first hand guidance and support.
You may even be calling us for a loved one that you think is struggling with addiction, either way, if left untreated addiction will only get worse.
You’ll soon become isolated as your addiction consumes you and your life. Anyone close to you will get pushed away and you may fall into debt trying to finance your substance misuse. Without professional help addiction will eventually lead to death.
Take back control of your life by contacting our friendly and dedicated team for a free initial consultation.
Outpatient Or Residential Treatment?
Deciding on a treatment pathway can seem like a daunting prospect, especially since there are many options available to you. The first choice you have to make is whether you want to undertake outpatient or residential treatment.
Outpatient treatment is often the most challenging addiction treatment. During the day you’ll attend a detox or therapy clinic and in the evenings and at weekends you’ll return home.
Unless you have a strong support network at home, this form of treatment can often lead to relapse as you’re surrounded by the negative influences that drive your addiction.
Distance can provide enough space between you and your toxic daily life to allow you to heal you mind and body, whilst reflecting on what you want from the future. With residential addiction treatment you’ll be provided with living quarters and all your meals throughout your stay.
Residential programmes typically last for 28 days, in which time you’ll undergo detox and receive a combination of traditional therapy treatments and holistic treatments to help you rebuild a healthier lifestyle.
Private drug and alcohol rehab may be the last option on your list, due to the cost, however compared to the cost of sustaining your addiction this form of treatment is relatively cheap.
With growing pressures and limited resources, the NHS has long waiting lists for rehab facilities. At Addiction Advocates, we understand the urgency of admitting you into rehab to receive your treatment, which is why we can organise your treatment as quickly as 48 hours after your initial consultation.
Personalised Addiction Treatment
Upon arrival at drug and alcohol rehab in Sedgley, you’ll undertake a full medical examination, whereby our medical professionals will assess your physical and psychological health. This’ll enable us to work with you to create your personalised treatment programme for your stay.
Every journey to recovery is a personal one and every addiction is different. Since, there are no definitive causes of addiction there isn’t one perfect way to treat this illness.
Instead, we treat you using a variety of traditional and holistic techniques to identify the root causes of your addiction and help you build coping strategies for daily life. This dual diagnosis approach is essential for long term recovery.
Drug and Alcohol Detox
Detox is always the first step in rehab, since you’ll need a clear head for your therapy treatment. The purpose of drug and alcohol detoxification is to rid the body of the substance, but it’s important to note that we always conduct this step under medical supervision.
This process is conducted slowly, by reducing the levels of consumption in your body. During your addiction your body learns to depend on the substance to function normally, so it’s quite normal to experience withdrawal symptoms at this stage, as you slowly reduce your consumption levels and your body’s dependence on this substance. These symptoms are your body’s reaction to this reduction.
However, the more severe your addiction, the more severe your withdrawal symptoms are likely to be. Our medical team provide round the clock care to ensure you’re comfortable during this stage, and prescription drugs are available in more challenging circumstances.
After you’ve completed your detox you’ll start your therapy treatment. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a common type of therapy used to treat addiction, as it identifies negative thought processes and allows you to alter negative habits.
It works through reflection and helps you establish more positive processes and coping strategies for use in daily life.
Motivational sessions are usually combined with CBT to give you the chance to build your self-worth and self-esteem.
These two factors are often underlying causes of your addiction that also fuel mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. By reinstalling a more positive image of yourself you can build resilience to negativity, such as addiction.
We strongly encourage group and peer activities throughout your stay, which is why group therapy, workshops and social activities are available for you to take part in.
Through fitness and a nutritional plan you’ll start to rebuild a healthier, more positive lifestyle.
