When you realise that you are struggling with an addiction, it may be difficult to know what to do next.

Rehab for Drug and Alcohol Addiction in Wellington

A private drug and alcohol rehab in the Wellington area can help you overcome your addiction through various treatments designed to help you learn how to safely overcome and manage your addiction.

As you begin the recovery process, it is important that you remember that addiction cannot be cured. Addiction is a chronic condition that will be with you in one form or another for the rest of your life. But that doesn’t mean it will always have this much control over you.

A chronic condition can be carefully controlled through the right lifestyle changes. While you may never be rid of your addiction, you will be able to live a long and happy life despite it. While you may still experience cravings, you can deal with them head-on and not automatically go to drugs or alcohol to satisfy them.

Drug and alcohol rehab is the best place for you when you have an addiction because addiction is such a complicated condition. A condition that can affect you mentally and physically in a way that people without experience with addiction may not be prepared for.

No matter your willpower or support system, it is very hard to safely achieve long-term recovery without help from a rehab centre, especially on your own.

We understand the temptation to pretend everything is okay and to try and handle this on your own. But your addiction won’t get better without proper treatment. You need the help of addiction specialists and a medical team that can keep you safe during your recovery.

You really have nothing to be afraid of. Drug rehab are perfectly safe, and we will only refer you to one that meets the highest possible standards of care and cleanliness.


Why Choose Private Rehab

While some people can be put off from getting treatment from private rehab due to the price, the investment is worth it.

If the cost of private rehab is an issue for you, you can get help from the NHS. The downside of this however is many people find their services incredibly difficult to access.

Private rehab is the best option available because it has proven time and again that it will give you the best possible chance at achieving long-term recovery. It is worth checking to see if your work if you pay into private health insurance that covers rehab treatments as all of or part of the costs, may be covered.

This is because, in a private rehab centre, you will be in a comfortable and safe rehab facility that is well staffed by fully qualified personnel. You will be treated as a unique individual that needs specialised care for your specific experiences and needs.

Private rehab allows you to be the centre of your recovery. Unlike outpatient services, at private rehab you will be able to be admitted into a rehab facility as soon as possible. Then, all you need to do is complete a short pre-admissions assessment designed to assess your needs and be sure you will get the most out of your time at rehab.

It is accessible and safe. But most importantly, it gives you the power to decide what you want your rehab experience to look like.

You won’t be kept in the dark, scared and confused. Instead, you will be able to make decisions that will affect your recovery and your future.


How Does Rehab Work?

Rehab works by providing you with various treatments designed to deal with physical and mental addictions.

The first treatment you will receive will be a drug or alcohol detox.

Your body needs to be weaned off all drugs and alcohol, so through the drug detox, you are able to rid your body of all toxins.

This process tends to take up to ten days to complete. It can be uncomfortable at times due to you experiencing some withdrawal symptoms. But there is nothing to worry about as you will be perfectly safe throughout as you will be monitored by the medical team day and night.

The medical team is there to ensure that your withdrawal symptoms never progress to a dangerous level. Before it gets to that point, they will provide you with prescribed medication that is designed to help alleviate the withdrawal symptoms.

Following your detox, you will be able to carry on safely without ever having drugs or alcohol again.

The next stage of rehab is a range of therapy treatments. You will work with the rehab therapist to identify your triggers and to come up with relapse prevention strategies so that you can either avoid them or adopt coping mechanisms to avoid a relapse once you leave the rehab facility.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Does Rehab Take?
Estimating how long it takes to complete rehab is hard as it differs for everyone. The time it takes you to complete treatment will depend entirely on your personal circumstances, response to treatment, and the severity of your addiction. Typical rehab programmes last 28 days but this can differ.
What is a dual diagnosis?
The term dual diagnosis refers to someone who is suffering from both an addiction to alcohol or drugs and mental health problems. The two conditions are co-occurring, it’s possible for one to be slightly stronger than the other, although they could both be of equal strength. Dual diagnosis is actually a lot more common than many people realise. It can occur if a person has resorted to alcohol or drugs as a way to cope with their poor mental health or whether someone’s excessive drug taking or drinking has resulted in a serious mental health condition.
What is our admissions process?
To start the admissions process, call our friendly admissions team or email. They will answer any questions you may have about our drug and alcohol rehab and invite you to a pre-screening assessment if you’re happy to go ahead. This will be a great opportunity to assess your physical and psychological health and generally get to know you better. This assessment will then allow us to design the most suitable addiction treatment programme for you, maximising the effectiveness of your rehabilitation.
