Getting help for drug and alcohol addiction in Skelmersdale

Recovering from drug or alcohol addiction involves stopping physical and psychological dependence on substances and correcting any subsequent addictive behaviours. Attempting to stop using drugs or alcohol without professional assistance is very difficult. It can also be dangerous where a physical dependence has taken hold.

We have a number of therapeutic models to help our clients with psychological issues. Mental health conditions are a common accompaniment of an addiction and we offer support for dual-diagnosis – this is where addiction and mental health conditions exist simultaneously. This commonly requires a more specialised treatment plan.

Drug and alcohol rehabilitation

All forms of drug and alcohol addiction negatively impact physical and mental health. The behavioural aspects of addiction are the most unpleasant and difficult to experience. Addicts commonly experience a string of relationship and friendship breakdowns and are noticeably changed people. You may be recognising this in yourself, or maybe you’re a loved one, friend or colleague concerned about someone you care about.

Huge adjustments are required to ensure that rehab is successful. Recovery success rates are dependent on your commitment to changing. At Addiction Advocates, our drug and alcohol treatment centres are modern, and we offer bespoke addiction treatment. This includes screening and regular progress monitoring throughout your programme.

How does rehab work?

Rehab empowers those struggling with an addiction to return to having a meaningful life without a dependence. Addiction Advocates’ highly trained and qualified professionals work to foster a compassionate, understanding environment that begins the healing process and promotes a long-term recovery. We do ask for you to commit to 28 days of residential rehab and depending on how you respond to treatment, it may be longer.

Our rehab programmes consist of both individual and group therapy. Medical staff are available 24 hours a day to aid with the detox process oversee a client’s detox medication and psychotherapy.

We also supply free aftercare for 12 months as part of any programme via our 24/7 helpline, and many of our staff are recovered or recovering addicts themselves. This leaves them best placed to understand you as a client – they aren’t in your shoes but they know how it feels to be you and how to overcome any wobbles you may have. Overcoming addiction is not easy. There’s no cure and only your hard work and efforts to abstain will overcome any post programme difficulties you encounter. But we’ll be here to guide you.

Drug and alcohol addiction detox

Detox is a treatment that breaks the physical and psychological addiction that is caused by drug and alcohol addiction. A medical detox is described as such because any required detox medication is provided in order to alleviate the many dangerous withdrawal symptoms. Medication is not always needed but may prove beneficial for our clients who are addicted to substances such as opiates and alcohol.

Our professionals will assess you and determine if a medically-assisted detox is best for you. We’ll make extra considerations around your requirements and any mental health issues. Your detox treatment will take place within one of our clinics in a residential setting. This is so that our medical professionals can monitor any withdrawal symptoms or any other associated health complications. It’s also a good way to separate yourself from the temptations in your life, whether this be places or people. This will make your treatment easier.

Drug and alcohol addiction therapy

Removing all drugs and alcohol from your system is the first step. Once this has been completed, you’ll undertake the therapy stage of your treatment.

Our experts will use a wide range of therapeutic models in order to create a personalised treatment plan that will be the best one for you. Our aim is to create the best environment that allows you to discover and expand upon new, different ways of thinking, bond with people suffering alongside you and to discover and enjoy new hobbies that do not involve the use of drugs or alcohol.
