How treatment begins
Treatment begins with a pre-admissions assessment. Here patients must call Rehab 4 Addiction and set-aside five minutes of their time to answer basic questions concerning their addiction. Following this assessment patients are then required to enter a residential rehabilitation centre in Chelsea or Kensington for around 10-28 days. The duration of treatment depends on the severity of patients’ withdrawal symptoms. Chronic addicts who suffer from underlying anxiety and depression typically require 28 days in order for rehab to be successful.
Detox: an essential milestone to pass
The duration of detox in Chelsea or Kensington also depends upon the specific drug that patients are addicted to. An acute alcohol withdrawal typically requires 5-7 days to complete whilst a heroin or methadone detox takes around 12 days to complete. Regardless of the drug concerned, patients receive 24/7 medical attention from a team of experts when they choose to undergo the rehabilitation process in Chelsea or Kensington. Medical experts typically include psychiatrists and psychiatric nurses. Patients may be prescribed medications designed to reduce their withdrawal symptoms during this period.
Counselling and therapy: treating the mental aspect of addiction
Following on from an initial psychiatric assessment a tailored rehabilitation plan is written up and put in place. Following detox, patients are subject to a regime of counselling and therapy sessions. These sessions are conducted by psychiatrist who holds advanced degrees in substance misuse counselling. Modern therapy techniques employed at this stage of rehabilitation include cognitive behavioural therapy and dialectical behavioural therapy. These therapies help patients identify and isolate negative thoughts that breathe new life into addictive tendencies. In turn patients are taught ways of changing or coping with addiction triggers in ways not involving drug or alcohol use.
Nutrition and holistic therapies
Patients also receive expert nutrition advice during their time at a Chelsea or Kensington rehabilitation centre. Healthy eating is a central requirement of long-term recovery. Therefore patients must stop eating sugary foods and caffeine before discharge occurs.
Chelsea or Kensington rehabilitation centres also offer holistic therapies. These typically include mindfulness meditation, yoga, Reiki, reflexology and music/art therapy. These ancient therapies arm patients with powerful techniques to defeat addiction triggers such as stress.
