Living in such a small town, you may believe you are one of the only ones battling addiction. The truth is that every town in the UK has its fair share of addiction problems, including Calne.
This means there are plenty of treatment centres set up to help locals, and you could benefit from their excellent facilities.
Neither one is right for everyone, but we generally recommend drug and alcohol rehab as it has the best success rates thanks to its rigid structure.
We know that there is a stigma attached to asking for help; you may feel ashamed that you are even considering rehab.
However, we believe there is strength in acknowledging you cannot recover alone, so we applaud you for coming to this conclusion.
As intimidating as recovery may seem, we are here to introduce you to its endless benefits.
After a life of guilt, depression, and isolation, you could experience true freedom if you leave substances in the past. We have seen it happen time and time again, and there is no reason why it can’t happen to you.
Addiction is multifaceted; there is a physical and psychological side to it. First, people become dependent on drugs and alcohol in a physical way; their body craves substances, and they experience uncomfortable symptoms if they cannot access them.
This is down to chemical reactions in the brain; when you use substances, you experience a rush of dopamine which causes you to associate drugs with happiness.
This is likely to perpetuate the addiction cycle, as sufferers will do all they can to get the dopamine rush again. When someone is dependent on drugs in a purely physical way, we call this substance abuse.
If you are physically addicted to drugs and continue to feed your addiction, you will start to experience psychological symptoms of addiction.
This means that you have become dependent on substances both physically and mentally. Some signs of this are: you rely on substances to grow your confidence, you use them to numb your emotions, and you see them as an escape from reality.
There are certain people who are more likely to fall victim to addiction. For example, if you have an addictive personality, it will be harder to drink alcohol occasionally and you may find yourself spiralling very quickly.
People who have experienced trauma are also more likely to become dependent on drink and drugs, as they may use them to self-medicate.
It is also more common for people to develop an addiction when they have been exposed to heavy drinking and drug-taking from a young age.
However, it should also be noted that anyone can develop an addiction, and there are plenty of successful people around who are masking a substance abuse problem.
All rehab centres in Calne apply a dual approach to treating addiction; they use detoxing and therapy. The detox gets rid of dangerous chemicals in the body, which means the patient gradually learns how to function without substances.
Therapy is a way of treating the psychological effects of addiction, so it involves looking within and healing your deep-rooted trauma.
You will also get great life advice at rehab. Career advisors will help you reassess your plans for the future and motivational sessions will inspire you to create a life you love.
Ultimately, the staff at rehab want to teach you independence. At first, you will follow a strict routine to prevent you from wanting to relapse.
However, by the end of rehab, you will have developed the skills necessary to return to normal life and make healthy choices.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, we want recovery to be accessible for everyone, so there is no charge for our first conversation together.
You may be wondering what happens in this conversation – we simply chat about your experience with addiction, ask thought-provoking questions, and begin to plan your recovery journey.
Do not worry if you are unsure which treatment option you would prefer as we are happy to chat this through with you and explain each option in detail.
After our conversation, our staff will immediately start to browse treatment centres in Calne and look for ones that match your requirements.
We have high standards, so we will never refer you to a facility with low success rates or poor facilities. You can expect world-class treatment at a premium centre.
Remember that there are three options for treatment, so although we encourage rehab, we are happy to organise a home detox or outpatient therapy for you.
Whatever your needs, we are equipped to help you begin your sober life.
