Seeking Help For Your Addiction

If you’re already searching for “rehab near me”, chances are you’ve already admitted to your addiction and overcome one of the hardest steps to recovery, denial.

Addiction can be caused by many reasons and experiences in life, from trauma, stress to mental health issues, but whatever the root cause of addiction, we believe that everyone has a chance of full recovery if you’re committed to it.

Long term recovery means a life without drugs and alcohol, so never touching those substances again. It may seem impossible right now, but we have experienced all levels of addiction at our centres and many of our staff members are recovering addicts themselves, who are happy to share their wisdom and advice with residents.

It’s never too late to ask for help, or too early for that matter.

Drug And Alcohol Rehab In Tyne and Wear

When you’re looking for rehab in Tyne and Wear you’ll need to decide on the type of treatment you want to receive. Due to the nature of addiction and how it impacts both the physical and psychological aspects of a person’s life, we strongly advise opting for dual diagnosis treatment programmes; rehab that treats both the mind and body through detox and therapy.

You’ll also have to choose whether you want to receive outpatient or residential addiction treatment. The main difference between the two is that outpatient treatment can be received whilst living at home, whereas residential treatment requires you to live at the centre for the duration of your treatment.

Outpatient treatment may seem like the ideal choice, as you don’t have to leave the comfort of your own home, but without a strong support network to guide you through rehab in Tyne and Wear the chances of achieving long term recovery are low.

To remain amongst the negative influences that drive your addiction whilst receiving treatment is not an easy task to undertake.

Drug And Alcohol Detox

Drug or Alcohol detox is always the first step in any treatment programme, since you’ll need a clear head to undertake any therapy.

Detox usually lasts for a couple of days, but this will depend on the length and severity of your addiction. During detox your consumption rates will be slowly reduced until your body is clear from the substance. It’s important that detox is conduct under medical supervision, since withdrawal symptoms are highly likely to occur.

Withdrawal symptoms can range from nausea to anxiety and even seizures in some cases where the addiction has been severe or the body reacts badly to the withdrawal.

At Addiction Advocates, you’ll receive round the clock care to ensure that you’re kept comfortable and prescription drugs are provided where symptoms become more extreme.

Once you’ve successfully completed your detox you’ll start your therapy treatments.

Therapy Treatments

The main type of therapy used to treat addiction is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). CBT helps to identify the root causes of addiction and through psychoeducation helps to change current behavioural patterns and thought processes through developing strategies to overcome the cravings and negative influences.

Alongside CBT, we provide a range of other therapies, such as group workshops, motivational sessions and meditative classes. All of our treatment programmes are based on dual diagnosis to ensure that both your mind and body are healed during your stay at one of our centres. Only by healing mind and body can you hope to achieve long-term recovery.
