The referral process

Many people are unsure as to how our referral process works and if it really works.

When you call, you will be connected to one of our well trained and dedicated support staff. From there they will carry out a furrow assessment to best understand what you want from a rehab centre and any of your existing needs.

We understand that substance abuse is often a symptom of a deeper issue often caused by past trauma. Because of this in many cases, rehabs with specialist mental health facilities will be recommended.

By taking the time to get to know you, our services can take your stress away surrounding the rehab process. We know that once the decision to get treatment is made, acting quickly is imperative.

We streamline the process and find you a rehab centre in your area as fast as possible while making sure it is the best place for you.

The treatment

Depending on the severity of your situation it may be recommended you either work through a residential or outpatient program.

Both treatments work for different people but both tend to have similar elements that allow you to work through your drug or alcohol dependency in a safe and secure location.

Residential treatment is recommended for those with more severe drug or alcohol dependency as rehab centres can offer round the clock care and supervision throughout the recovery process.

Treatment tends to start with a detox

A detox is the process of you removing any drugs or alcohol from your system over the course of a few days. This is famously the hardest part of the recovery process as withdrawal symptoms can prove to be very uncomfortable for people.

While it can be dangerous to detox, this is only the case when you are on your own. It is perfectly safe to do in the care of a rehab centre where medically trained staff can monitor your progress and provide medication to relieve the effects of the withdrawal symptoms.

You will be provided care and support 24 hours a day during this time. You will not have to go through detox on your own. You will be helped and with professional care, it won’t be as bad as you are expecting.

Following your detox, you will be required to attend regular therapy sessions.

Depending on your trauma and overall reasons for substance abuse this could either be one to one private sessions or group therapy.

Private sessions give you the chance to talk through your problems with a trained professional that can help you understand your trauma responses and how to replace them with healthier alternatives.

Group therapy is also supervised by a trained therapist, but also attended by others from within the rehab centre also working towards recovery. Group therapy gives you the opportunity to talk to others with similar experiences, it allows you to see your not alone.

You will be supported by your group and in return be able to help others with their own recovery. You can build better interpersonal relationships and perhaps even make some friends.

During your stay at the rehab centre, you will attend a number of workshops designed to help you live a better life.

These workshops can range from a nutrition class where you can learn how to prepare a well-balanced meal and to prioritise your physical health, to meditation classes so that you can also care for your mental health and deal with any anxieties you may have.

Life after rehab

At this stage, it may be hard to imagine life outside of rehab let alone life drugs or alcohol-free.

But the point of rehab is to help you work towards long term recovery and because of that, you have to be able to continue on your journey outside of their constant supervision.

So how exactly do you stay drug and alcohol-free outside of your rehab centre?

To begin with, before you leave you will be given a relapse prevention plan. This plan is designed specifically for you to avoid cravings and use tools you learnt at the rehab centre to not relapse again.

Within this plan, you will be offered aftercare services.

These services will vary from person to person depending on the severity of your drug or alcohol dependence. For example, continued therapy sessions may be recommended so that you can continue to work through your trauma.

In all cases, it will be recommended you join a support group in the Carrick area.

This will help you build a support system and allows your progress to be monitored by a trained professional. It lets you surround yourself with those also working towards long term recovery and together you can support each other towards that goal.

What happens now?

Well, what you need to do now is take a deep breath and then call 0800 140 4690 so that your free assessment can begin.

It is a long journey ahead of you and we can’t promise it will always be easy. In fact, it will be very difficult at times.

But we can promise it will be worth it. That by choosing to get the help you are on the right path that will one day lead you to a better life.

The first step towards recovery is calling us and asking for help. You just need to ask and we can take care of the rest. We know you can do it, it’s never too late to get the help you deserve.
