If you believe that yourself or a loved one may be addicted to a substance, there are a few ways to determine if they require medical intervention. Dependency itself is not an automatic indicator that someone needs to find a rehab centre in Buckinghamshire.
The majority of signs will exhibit some form of self-destructive behaviour. Even if only a few apply, this could mean that you are well on your way to severe addiction, and it is essential to seek medical intervention.
Below is a list of some of the most frequent indicators that someone has an addiction and would benefit from inpatient treatment:
Patients receiving residential rehab treatment in Buckinghamshire must be willing to leave their home for around ten days. Twenty-eight days is the ideal length of treatment, particularly when patients suffer from an underlying condition such as depression or anxiety.
The general process for rehab in Buckinghamshire is set out below:
When patients enter a drug and alcohol rehab in Buckinghamshire, a psychiatrist carries out an initial assessment. Information gained in this assessment is used to draw up a personalised recovery plan.
Once patients complete the detox milestone a thorough and highly structured programme of therapy is put in place. Here patients attend counsellor-led sessions in either individual or group settings.
Patients are expected to identify and tackle those thoughts and emotions giving rise to addictive tendencies. Patients are also invited to participate in a number of ‘holistic therapies’ designed to help patients deal with stress in ways other than resorting to alcohol or drug use.
Once drug and alcohol rehab in Buckinghamshire draws to a conclusion patients are prepared for life on the ‘outside’. This includes the drawing up of a detailed relapse prevention and aftercare plan. This plan helps patients stay in recovery for the long foreseeable future.
To strengthen patients’ odds of staying in long-term recovery, a generous aftercare plan is offered. This typically allows patients to return to the treatment centre at least once a week for around twelve months following the completion of their rehabilitation programme.
Clients who contact our admissions team will be advised on the following rehab options. Each case is unique, and our specialist team of advisors will run through each option with you. These include:
By far the superior addiction treatment option available in Buckinghamshire is fully residential treatment. Here patients are removed from their normal environment for the entire treatment’s duration.
Patients live within the safe confines of the treatment centre, both during detox and during subsequent therapy sessions. This form of treatment is highly successful. Typically over 70% of patients receiving this form of treatment report being in recovery twelve months following the treatment’s conclusion.
However residential treatment requires a higher investment both in terms of money and time. This investment is well worth the effort for those seeking a long-term and permanent solution to their addiction woes.
Outpatient treatment is typically combined with a home detox. Here patients detox from home but receive therapy at a clinic during the day.
Again many of these programmes result in early relapse because patients are not removed from the substance-misuse environment.
Patients attending such a programme often refer to their treatment as ‘revolving-doors’ giving the persistent futility of their efforts to get clean once-and-for-all.
Perhaps the least advisable treatment option in Buckinghamshire would be a DIY ‘home detox’. Here you detox from your own home, typically with the aid of prescription medications designed to reduce withdrawal symptoms.
If you’re lucky you will have a loving family on hand to help you through this testing time. If you suffer from alcoholism or an opiate addiction, physical withdrawal symptoms make a home detox highly inadvisable due to the risk of coma and death.
Many choosing to detox from home often relapse within the first 24-48 hours. This is because the motivation to succeed is reduced by the onset of painful withdrawal symptoms or through the exposure of certain ‘addiction triggers’.
There are a few things to take care of before you enter a rehab Buckinghamshire programme since you may be there anywhere between a few weeks to months. You want to make sure that bills keep getting paid on time, and all financial considerations are taken care of before entering rehab.
If you do not have someone who can take care of this for you while you are in rehab, then you can set up automatic payment options. Whenever possible, it is best to have your family and close friends know what is happening so that they can help support and encourage you.
If you currently work, then you will need to make sure that your work duties are taken over and notice given. It is not uncommon for some addicts to have legal issues such as probation or a court date that must be adhered to in a given time frame. You will need to make sure all proper parties are notified and permissions granted.
Studies have proven that the most effective and safest option is inpatient treatment. This is because each patient receives the necessary amount of medical, psychological and social care for their individual needs.
Inpatient treatment also provides the ideal environment, free from access to substances, negative influences and is not haunted by habits of a previous life that would encourage the patient to relapse.
There are many benefits to private treatment which we have set out below:
You are under no obligation to tell your employer where you are going. However, if this is something you feel comfortable sharing, then it is best to be honest. Most likely, they were aware there was a problem as it is hard to hide addictions symptoms in later stages.
If you do decide to speak openly with your employer, then there are a few things you can do to make sure it goes smoothly. These include:
Detox is the first and most physically challenging phase of any substance addiction. The benefits of medically-assisted detox are endless, and provide the safest means of eliminating harmful substances from the body.
Although detox can be a scary and intimidating process, it is important to remember that our rehab centres in Buckinghamshire have on-site highly qualified staff who understand the phases of withdrawal.
Wondering what to expect from the detox phase? Below we have set out a general timeline and process for the withdrawal phase of your addiction:
There will be many types of therapy available, including behavioural therapist, group therapy, and alternative therapies such as art therapy. Most of our rehab in Buckinghamshire programmes include the following treatments, which focus on changes thought patterns and creating coping skills for a sober life:

Scientific studies have repeatedly shown that the best chance a person as for long-term sobriety is through private, inpatient treatment.
The reasons why inpatient rehab is so successful include the structured nature, access to 24/7 care, and an opportunity for you to take control of your actions and look at the reasons behind why addiction became an option in the first place.
Accountability, a supportive environment, and proper care can provide a stable place where you can get comfortable with the idea of facing sobriety alone using tools and coping skills learned through the treatment programme.
