If you have a complicated relationship with drugs and alcohol, it doesn’t always have to be this way. You can access abstinence-based recovery in Chapel En Le Frith and bask in the joy of a sober lifestyle.
We cannot promise that you won’t battle temptation, but we will provide you with all the resources necessary to manage your addiction in a healthy way.
We strongly recommend attending private rehab as you will not be put on a long waiting list. Instead, you will receive a referral within weeks, meaning there is less opportunity for your addiction to spiral.
Not only does private rehab offer excellent detox and therapy services, but it provides you with the opportunity to engage in fun outdoor activities, access sports facilities, and get to know other patients in a comfortable environment.
The good thing about going private is that you are in charge. Since you’re the one paying for treatment, you can decide if you believe you qualify.
Do this by researching the common symptoms of addiction and seeing if you identify with any of them. Put simply, if drugs and alcohol are taking a toll on you and negatively affecting your life, rehab will benefit you.
There are some common beliefs people hold that prevent them from going to rehab, and we want to challenge them today:
At times it may feel like drugs and alcohol are benefitting you as they numb painful emotions.
However, it is impossible to use substances as a numbing tool without experiencing any dangerous symptoms in the long run.
There are plenty of other coping mechanisms you can employ that will not destroy your life.
Your addiction is not your fault. Whether it’s genetic, environmental, or a combination of both, it is a complicated illness and you shouldn’t be ashamed to reach out and ask for help managing it.
Everyone deserves help.
Many people see sobriety as boring as they believe you can only have fun with drugs and alcohol. This is the addiction speaking, as you can live life to the full without touching drink and drugs.
You can still go on nights out, eat in nice restaurants, go on amazing holidays, meet interesting people, start new hobbies, and pursue what makes you happy.
Getting sober is extremely challenging, and if you attempt to do it alone, it is pretty much impossible. However, with medical intervention, there is no reason that you cannot recover from your addiction. If you detox and have regular therapy sessions, you can unpack your addiction issues and learn how to manage any temptation.
Outpatient clinics offer detox and therapy services. You can commute to these clinics on a daily basis, meaning you don’t have to stay over in the building.
This is great for people with work commitments as it means you don’t have to abandon work for a full 28 days as you do in rehab. It’s also ideal for people with young families, as it allows you to spend as much time at home as possible.
All in all, outpatient clinics benefit people who are battling a mild to moderate addiction and cannot commit to attending residential rehab.
Drug and alcohol rehabs in Chapel En Le Frith offer 28-day programmes where you can recover alongside other patients. The treatment is entirely personalised, giving you the best chances of staying sober.
There is also the benefit of 24/7 care, which keeps you healthy both mentally and physically. Residential rehab is best for people with moderate to severe addictions as they need to be monitored and cared for in a structured way.
Each rehab centre offers different types of therapy, so if you have a particular preference, we can search for a centre that specialises in your chosen form of therapy. Here are a few common types of therapy that people have in rehab:
Holistic therapies aim to heal your mind, body, and spirit, which puts you in a better position to face your addiction issues. Perhaps the best known type of holistic therapy is yoga. Certain rehab centres put on daily yoga sessions which help patients to relax and practise their breathing. Yoga can be the perfect opportunity to calm your mind while you are battling a stressful situation – getting sober.
As simple as it sounds, talking therapy can work wonders for people with addiction. We often keep our darkest thoughts to ourselves and let them destroy us, but by opening up to a trained therapist, we realise that we are holding onto so much unnecessary guilt and shame. Talk therapy therapists will validate your feelings while encouraging you to consider a different point of view.
This form of therapy encourages you to embrace your thoughts and feelings rather than trying to fight them. For example, if you are feeling extremely anxious, rather than trying to distract yourself and deny the anxiety, you would accept it. This is useful as we often cannot control our feelings, so it’s better to honour them.
EMDR is a relatively new form of therapy that is primarily used to treat post-traumatic stress disorder, but it is also effective with addiction.
The idea is to recount past traumatic experiences while gently tapping yourself or following a light with your eyes.
The memories get reprocessed, and it becomes easier for you to accept them. EMDR can work for anyone, but it is particularly effective if your addiction has arisen due to trauma.
