Our drug and alcohol services are able to help those based in Swansea to get professional and accessible care that will help you to conquer your addiction and start living a healthier and more successful life.

Drug abuse and alcohol abuse affects countless families each year across the UK, and Addiction Advocates’ are committed to helping everyone who reaches out to us.

Addiction can affect anyone, and taking steps towards getting the help required to forge a safe and long-lasting recovery from a substance abuse disorder is nothing short of a noble goal.

The fact that you have found yourself to this page, and are reading this, then you are clearly in the mindset of wanting to get back to life that is free from the clutches of addiction.

And, while you are in this mindset, it is important that you do not delay in taking the next step and contacting us about starting drug or alcohol rehab. Many addicts will search for any excuse to delay getting treatment, but only you can make the brave and vital choice to actually reach out for that helping hand today.

 

Do You Really Need Rehab?

Many people have a very archaic notion of what rehab entails in their minds, largely due to the prevalent depiction of rehabs in films and the media. However, Addiction Advocates’ rehabilitation centres are not the unsettlingly clinical and emotionless places that Hollywood would have you believe, far from it!

At our rehab, you will be able to spend your time recovering in a luxurious private room, with housekeeping staff to keep your room clean and do your laundry.

Furthermore, our highly-trained staff will also be able to provide you with nutritious home-cooked meals on a daily basis. We believe that you should be as comfortable as possible which will allow you to spend all of your time focussing on your recovery.

However, the road to recovery is not easy. During your stay with us, you will face a lot of obstacles that are necessary to overcome in order to craft a long-lasting recovery.

Although with our dedicated, highly-skilled, and caring medical staff helping guide you through this process, you will massively improve your chances of achieving a long-lasting and well-rounded recovery than and other drug and alcohol treatment.

Our treatments can take a variety of forms, as we understand that every individual’s experiences are different, so we will tailor your treatment specifically to you! Mostly, however, people will first have to go through a course of detoxification at our detox clinic upon arrival.

 

We Take The Danger Out Of Detoxification

While the goal of overcoming drug and alcohol abuse is to not consume any negative substances going forward, simply going cold turkey at home prior to attending our rehab is not advised. Independent drug or alcohol detox can be incredibly dangerous and ineffective.

Going cold turkey can cause a wide variety of symptoms to develop. This may including fluctuations in blood pressure, nausea, paranoia, hallucinations, and delirium tremens (DTs).

Extreme caution should be taken in relation to trying to detox at home by going cold turkey, and we strongly advise that you go through withdrawal safely at one of our facilities instead.

Our carefully managed detoxification treatments have been arduously tried and tested over many years. While experiencing detoxification with us, you will be closely monitored by highly-trained staff members.

Our staff and facilities are fully equipped to handle any symptoms or discomfort you may experience during detox and will be able to provide the aid, be it medical or otherwise, required for safe and comfortable detoxification.

The very prospect of detox can be a real source of worry for a lot of addicts, and that is a natural concern. While withdrawal affects all people differently, the psychological and physical symptoms that may present can not only be incredibly challenging, but in some instances can be life-threatening.

People can, and do, die from experiencing withdrawal alone, in particular from alcohol, so we strongly advise going through this process with the help of our medical staff.

 

What Treatments Will You Experience On Your Journey?

While there are different programs available, the majority of our patients will complete a 28-day rehab treatment course with us.

Once you have completed your detox program, you will then begin a series of treatments designed to heal both your body and your mind, and help you to overcome your substance abuse disorder both physically and emotionally.

Some of the most common treatments that we employ on our programs include such techniques as, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), art therapy, meditative practices, one-to-one therapy sessions, group therapy sessions, motivational classes, dual-diagnosis treatment, and more.

Furthermore, we also will engage with you on relapse prevention during your treatment. Learning about relapse prevention in conjunction with CBT and on-to-one therapy sessions will prepare you for the daunting prospect of returning to your home life once you have left us.

We believe in creating a long-term recovery; and so, by helping you to identify what was the cause of you having developed your addiction, we can help you to reprogram the way your brain considers addiction, and help you to not fall back into cycles of addiction when presented with old triggers that may unexpectedly present themselves back in your home environment.
