Reasonably, you will have some personal questions or concerns which go deeper than our Q&A. If this is the case, we invite you to contact our team, helping you feel ready, secure and confident with drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

At Addiction Advocates, we regularly experience this process at the commencement of admission. With this in mind, we understand the psychological processes that you are experiencing when considering the prospect of drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

To aid your process, and to reduce your concerns, we’ve condensed some of the most commonly asked questions around rehab, around addiction treatment and around our services. We hope that by sharing them with you, that we can ease your admission, along with selecting a Woking-based rehab clinic.


Can I recover from a drug and alcohol rehab in Woking?

Recovering locally, to some, can be seen as a daunting step. This is usually linked to preconceived ideas of outpatient rehab, of struggling through familiar drug and alcohol triggers, and of judgment.

Yet, here at Addiction Advocates, we diminish those ideas by only promoting inpatient rehab for clients favouring localised recovery. Selecting a drug and alcohol rehab in Woking can influence the challenges listed above. However, through a controlled setting, through removing exposure to those triggers, and through a private and safe environment, remaining local can offer strong recovery rates.

The most important factor is that you select a rehab clinic which offers the exact level and form of care, addiction treatment and further services that you require to recover. This, while paired with inpatient rehab will provide the opportunity to remain near Woking and experience the value linked to localised recovery.

Please remember that for some individuals, even outpatient rehab in Woking can work. Yet, it’s all down to expectations, end recovery goals, and the severity of a drug and alcohol addiction.


How will I pick between outpatient and inpatient rehab?

As stated above, it’s all about your expectations of drug and alcohol rehabilitation. The severity of your drug and alcohol addiction should also direct your decision, which we can also support you with when selecting a Woking based rehab clinic.

Firstly, if you’re expecting a quick, productive and reliable rehab experience, inpatient rehab will be recommended. Outpatient rehab will take longer, can be difficult to manage on a consistent basis, and can be testing for those with psychological links to drugs and alcohol. If you’re however happy to wait, if you’re able to control your cravings, and if your daily reality is benefiting your recovery, outpatient rehab can be selected.

Secondly, the severity of your addiction, your physical and psychological links and your readiness to recover should direct your decision. Clients with strong addictive characteristics and dual links to drugs and alcohol should prioritise inpatient rehab. While those who are experiencing symptoms of substance abuse, in place, outpatient rehab can be a possible selection.

By considering both of these factors, a clear decision between outpatient and inpatient rehab is likely. We can support you with this, ensuring that you are accessing optimal addiction treatment and care for your needs.


What type of drug and alcohol treatment services will I need to complete?

The exact type of addiction treatment options recommended for you personally will be highlighted on your admission into rehab. Those recommendations will be made by completing a final assessment of your needs via rehab.

While an accurate representation cannot be shared currently, there is however a strong likelihood that you will need to complete physical and psychological addiction treatment options. This can include anything from stress management and CBT, to a drug and alcohol detox and art therapy.

While recommendations cannot be provided at first contact, we can however reassure you that only safe and effective addiction treatment options will be used through rehab.


What is dual-diagnosis treatment?

Dual-diagnosis treatment is the combination of two standalone treatment programmes, in place to treat two standalone mental health conditions. In this case, those conditions will be an addiction and a form of mental health issues, such as depression or anxiety.

As both conditions are complex and unique in their impacts, two rehab programmes must be recommended, soon coming together to benefit one another. This again will mix a number of treatment options, focusing on physical and psychological recovery needs.

Dual-diagnosis treatment will only be required if you suffer from mental health issues. While it is very common that a degree will be present for recovering addicts, not all will suffer psychologically. With this in mind, this recommendation will be made on your admission into a drug and alcohol rehab in Woking.


Why can stress make my addiction worse?

While stress is a common emotion, it can in fact fuel the majority of substance abuse. Stress can define itself in many different ways, sometimes positively, yet predominantly negatively for recovering addicts.

Although stress may have contributed to your drug and alcohol addiction diagnosis, it is imperative that stress management is activated through rehab. Without this step, there’s a likelihood that addiction can deter, as excessive stress causes significant weaknesses in the brain.

Stress can also influence greater drug and alcohol abuse, along with the correlation between mental health issues. With this in mind, stress should be controlled to help alleviate psychological struggles, linked to reality. Working on your stress levels will also benefit your long-term recovery journey, helping you avoid potential drug and alcohol relapse.
