Is Treatment Via A Drug and Alcohol Rehab In Whitstable Safe?

When you secure treatment for your addiction via a drug and alcohol rehab in Whitstable, you can rest assured knowing that the treatment provided is safe.

Although you may have your worries, all treatment offered by a drug and alcohol rehab in Whitstable is medically proven to help individuals struggling with the ramifications of addiction physically and psychologically recover.

Please also bear in mind that your chosen rehab will only ever administer treatment they believe will benefit you.

Your physical and psychological health will also be evaluated before commencing treatment to ensure that you are fit to progress through an intense rehabilitation programme.


How Will A Drug and Alcohol Rehab In Whitstable Know What Treatment I Need?

Just like many other individuals that find themselves contemplating attending a drug and alcohol rehab in Whitstable, you may wonder how your chosen rehab will know what treatment you need.

Simply put, upon entering your chosen drug and alcohol rehab in Whitstable, you will be required to complete an admissions assessment. Conducted by a team of medical professionals, participating in an admissions assessment will ensure that your physical and psychological health is reviewed.

From the symptoms you experience to the way in which your addiction has affected various aspects of your life, during your assessment, you will find that you are asked several questions that will enable the medical team at your chosen rehab to understand your addiction in greater detail.

With an understanding of your addiction, your personalised treatment programme will be created. This will outline the treatment you require and will also detail how long your treatment programme will last.

During your admissions assessment, you will have the chance to ask any questions you have. We would encourage you to do so, as this will help put your mind at ease and will guarantee that you are confident in the treatment prescribed.


What Treatment Will I Likely Encounter?

As touched on above, to determine the treatment you will encounter at a drug and alcohol rehab in Whitstable, an admissions assessment must be completed.

However, at Addiction Advocates, we know that gaining an understanding of the treatment you may experience will essentially help you mentally prepare for your time in rehab.

Considering this, our admissions team can discuss the treatments you may be offered based on the severity of your addiction and the rehabs that are available in Whitstable with you when you contact us.

To further support you, we have outlined the treatments that are usually incorporated into treatment programmes below.

Will I Experience Withdrawal Symptoms?

If you have conducted research surrounding the treatment provided by drug and alcohol rehabs in Whitstable, you may have uncovered that it is common for individuals progressing through rehabilitation treatment to experience withdrawal symptoms.

As you undergo detoxification and rehabilitation, it is entirely normal for you to experience withdrawal symptoms. The symptoms that you experience will vary, as will the severity of the symptoms. However, withdrawal symptoms usually include headaches, nausea, restlessness and insomnia.

Throughout your time in rehab, if you find that the withdrawal symptoms you encounter are difficult to cope with, medication can be prescribed to minimise the overall impact symptoms have on you.


What Other Support Is Available To Me?

During your time in rehab, you will have the ability to take advantage of various treatments. In addition to treatments, there will be a wealth of support available at all times.

For example, many of the drug and alcohol rehabs in Whitstable offer mental health support to individuals that have become addicted to substances such as cocaine, cannabis and alcohol.

This is because addictions and mental health disorders often come hand-in-hand. If it is required, you may be offered dual diagnosis treatment.

This treatment combines addiction treatment and mental health treatment to ensure that you can make a full recovery from your addiction and mitigate the ramifications your mental health disorder has on your life.

In addition, if it is required, you will be able to seek support that will help you repair any relationships that may have broken down at the height of your addiction. Many of the rehabs that we can refer you to will offer family therapy.

This will provide you with the chance to discuss your addiction with your loved ones in a safe space. In turn, your family will have the ability to learn and understand how they can support you in your recovery.
