If you believe that you may be addicted to drugs or alcohol, medical help is key.
The majority of signs will exhibit some form of harmful behaviour. This could mean that you are well on your way to addiction. If so, it is essential to seek medical help.
Below is a list of signs someone has an addiction and would benefit from treatment:
Patients receiving rehab must be willing to leave their home for around ten days. Twenty-eight days is the ideal length of treatment. This is so when patients suffer from depression or anxiety.
The general process for rehab in Buckinghamshire is set out below:
When patients enter rehab, a psychiatrist carries out an initial assessment. The information gained in this assessment is used to draw up a recovery plan.
Once patients complete the detox, therapy and counselling is put in place. Here, patients attend counsellor-led sessions in either individual or group settings.
Patients identify and tackle thoughts and emotions giving rise to addictive tendencies. Patients benefit from ‘holistic therapies’ to help deal with stress.
Once rehab draws to a conclusion, patients are prepared for life on the ‘outside’. This includes the drawing up of detailed relapse prevention and aftercare plan. This plan helps patients stay in recovery for the future.
To strengthen the odds of staying in long-term recovery, an aftercare plan is offered. This allows patients to return to the rehab at least once a week. This lasts for twelve months after the completion of their rehab.
Clients who contact our admissions team will be advised on rehab options. Each case is unique, and our 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. You want to make sure bills keep getting paid. You will also way to make sure your financial situation is taken care of before going to rehab.
It is best to have your family and close friends know what is happening. This means they can give their support.
If you currently work, then you will need to make sure that your work duties are taken over and notice given.
Studies have proven that the most effective option is inpatient rehab. This is because each patient receives the necessary amount of medical, psychological and social care.
Inpatient rehab offers the ideal environment. It is free substances and negative influences 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.
Below, we offer advice to help you get your employer on-side:
There will be many types of therapy available. This includes behavioural therapists, group therapy, and alternative therapies. Most of our rehabs include the following treatments:
Detox is the first and most physically challenging phase of any substance addiction. The benefits of detox are endless. For one, it provides the safest means of eliminating harmful substances from the body.
Detox can be a scary and intimidating process. But it is important to remember that our rehabs have on-site highly qualified staff. These people 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:
