Drug and Alcohol Rehab

Whilst you may recognise the impact of your addiction on your health, you may not be sure whether it is the right time to ask for help. If you are unsure of how much you need help, you should consider a few factors.

If you consume drugs or alcohol on a daily basis, at all times of the day and if you need these substances to get you through your day, you should seek immediate assistance.

Other factors that indicate the need for immediate help are frequently fluctuating moods, struggling to cope with life if you don’t take drugs or drink alcohol, having bad headaches if you don’t take drugs or drink alcohol or consuming drugs or alcohol to eradicate pessimistic and negative feelings and thoughts.

One of the biggest factors however, and one of the most painful, is feedback from other people. Has a friend, family member or colleague made comments on your consumption or your overall demeanour?

If these kinds of considerations are common in your life, you likely have an addiction that requires professional assistance. We encourage you to seek immediate addiction support in this case and leaving an addiction untreated will eventually cause irreparable damage to your health.

Please don’t leave it any longer – please seek help as soon as possible.

Detoxification

It could well be that you have been extensively researching your rehab options. If you’ve been searching terms like “rehab UK” or “rehab near me” then you might well be aware that detoxification is the first step of your treatment.

Detox is, simply put, the process of withdrawing from the substance to which you’ve become addicted to and breaking your dependency. Without completing a detox, the rest of your rehab and further aftercare support will not be effective.

Your brain and body will still be craving the drugs or alcohol that you developed an addiction to. Without removing the associated toxins from your body, fully overcoming addiction will be exceptionally difficult.

While you may be aware of other people’s addiction recovery journeys, it is important to be aware that everyone has a different detox.

People who have severe addictions will be in the detox process for longer and their treatment will be more painful and uncomfortable. Whereas those who spot the signs and symptoms of an addiction early will likely find their detox a more manageable experience.

Irrespective of the severity of your addiction, a detoxification should only take place in a professional, safe environment and we absolutely do not recommend that you attempt a DIY detox at home as it is simply not safe.

A professional, medically assisted detoxification by Addiction Advocates will ensure you’re weaned off drugs or alcohol in a safe, controlled manner.

Rehabilitation

Rehab generally incorporates counselling and therapies. Our drug rehab and alcohol rehab ensures that individuals in rehab have every chance to explore the reasons they have developed an addiction and fully understand their illness.

Your rehab treatment will also show you how to manage your cravings and to identify triggers that cause you to abuse addictive substances.

The counselling and therapies that we offer will depend on the severity of your addiction, and will be offered on a group and individual basis. Your therapies will help you to consider the way you view drugs and alcohol, and they will have a significant impact on shaping your future and we promote a long-term recovery.

Your therapy sessions will introduce methods such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) in order to promote changes to your behaviour and attitude towards addictive substances.

Group therapy sessions are an important part of your recovery journey. You will be able to network with your peers and group sessions allow you to share your experience with others whilst also learning from the journeys of other people in your group.

Group sessions serve as a positive form of peer pressure, wherein you motivate each other to get through difficult days.

Aftercare and Post Rehab Support

Whilst relapses are not uncommon, it is important to focus on your life after your treatment with a positive mindset.

We have helped thousands of people to recover from a drug addiction or alcohol addiction, and we are proud of the drug rehab and alcohol rehab that we offer. The majority of our clients make a long-term recovery.

Due to our detoxification and rehabilitation, you will be given everything you require for a complete change of attitude moving forwards.

As part of your rehab treatment, all of our rehab centres offer a year of aftercare and we will be there for you if you feel you might be about to experience a relapse via a 24-hour helpline and regular follow up sessions

You will also be provided with the contact details for local support groups, where you can continue the work you started in group therapy and continue to share experiences as your recovery continues.

There’s no set moment where you fully recover from addiction, it’s something that you need to keep working at and the whole process revolves around you.

If you feel you are ready to do something about your addiction, and want to take giant new strides forward in life, why not get in touch with our admissions team today?
