What happens when I go to a Private Rehab Clinic?
Private rehab clinics are proven to be the most effective way of successfully beating addiction for most people. At Addiction Advocates, our number one priority is finding the right programme for you, so the first step is the admissions process.
This is a crucial stage that allows us to assess the severity of your addiction, as well as your physical and mental health condition. We can then determine what is the right treatment centre for your personal needs.
At our rehab centre in Small Heath, the first stage is likely to be drug or alcohol detox. This is the process of the substances leaving the body, and, while it can be very unpleasant, the skilled and professional staff at the centre will be on hand to support you.
Residential rehab usually lasts for a period of twenty-eight days, and in that time, a drug rehab treatment programme will be used to help you understand and overcome your addiction. Each programme is tailor-made for the needs of the individual, and an effective aftercare programme to ensure the tools for long term success will also be developed during your time there.
What are the main signs and Symptoms of Addiction?
Addiction is defined as the inability to control behaviour to the point that it becomes harmful. Most people will consider themselves to have an addiction when they lose the ability to stop using a substance and the negative effects become apparent in their life.
The signs and symptoms of addiction vary depending on the type and severity and are different for each individual, however, there are some signs that are seen in a number of addictions:
- Insomnia or a change to a normal sleeping pattern
- Difficulty concentrating
- Mood swings
- Memory problems
- Hopelessness and lethargy
- Withdrawing from socialising and responsibility
If these signs aren’t present that doesn’t mean a person doesn’t have an addiction, and if you’re struggling with substance misuse, don’t wait for these to present themselves before seeking help. The earlier treatment is taken, the less impact your life will suffer as a result of addiction.
Types of Addictions and Treatment
As the issue of addiction grows around the world, so too does the range of addiction treatments available. At our rehab centre in Small Heath we can help you successfully overcome the following addictions:
Addiction treatments at our centres look at the physical aspects of addiction as well as the underlying causes that led to substance abuse in the first place. This can involve physical treatment services and cognitive behavioural therapy, alternative therapies, support groups, group therapy, individual therapy, and motivational therapy.
Mental health is often inseparable from addiction, and just like addiction, issues with mental health can have severe detrimental effects on the lives of those suffering. Our residential rehab centre in Small Heath can also offer treatment for anxiety and depression. Get in touch with Addiction Advocates to see how we can help.
How can I get help?
Whether you’re seeking help for yourself or someone you’re concerned about, getting help has never been more straightforward. From your first contact, we’ll help you identify the best course of action through an initial assessment and find the right treatment so you can start on the road to recovery.
Seeking help for someone else through a family or friend referral can seem intimidating. You may be concerned that you may make matters worse, or possibly break the trust in the person you’re concerned for, but seeking help is the right thing to do and our team can help to support you. We can also offer advice on family interventions and alcohol interventions.
