Below, we ask some of the common questions you may need answering about going to rehab in Bristol:
Bristol is home to some of the UK’s best private alcohol rehab centres. When you choose to receive treatment in a residential setting you receive 24/7 medical attention. This attention is offered by a team of dedicated medical workers. Withdrawal symptoms are reduced using state-of-the-art medical techniques. Patients are prescribed drugs designed specifically to reduce otherwise painful and discomforting withdrawal symptoms.
A list of common withdrawal symptoms patients may suffer from during detoxification include:
Fortunately, Bristol alcohol rehab centres offer 24/7 medical attention during this testing time.
Once withdrawal symptoms cease, patients undergo counselling and therapy sessions. Bristol alcohol rehab centres offer these sessions in either group or individual settings. Counselling and therapy sessions are supervised by a state-registered counsellor or therapist. All counsellors and therapists have earned many years of experience specifically in the substance-misuse field.
During therapy and counselling sessions patients are encouraged to identify and challenge specific thoughts and emotions leading to addictive behaviour. Patients also take part in both ancient and modern holistic therapies such as Reiki, meditation, and aromatherapy. These therapies arm patients with stress-defeating mechanisms needed to fight off drug or alcohol cravings.
Once rehab draws to a successful conclusion, patients receive a personalised aftercare and relapse prevention plan. This plan helps patients in their quest to remain clean upon their return to normal life outside the Bristol alcohol rehab clinic. Patients are typically permitted to return to the rehab centre for an additional twelve-months following discharge. This is known as ‘aftercare sessions’. Most Bristol rehabs offer aftercare sessions on a Saturday afternoon or at another convenient time.
Other treatment options available in Bristol include outpatient treatment and home-based detox. Both options do not compare favourably to residential treatment and require patients to have on hand a loving and supporting family-environment. Please contact a counsellor for more information.
