At the point of life where addiction is accepted and the idea of rehabilitation arrives, there is usually a series of circumstances that need addressing.
Drug and alcohol addiction comes with a huge amount of consequences. These affect a person mentally, physically, and of course, go on to ripple out affecting the person’s familial and social life.
This is without even thinking about how at its worst, addiction can affect the aforementioned as well as destroying a person’s living and employment situation.
Addiction is a complex illness and as such requires a complex and holistic approach to treatment. It’s only possible to heal when every part of a person’s life is taken into account.
This also means unpicking memories and learning to cope with previous pain, as well as thinking about the future and how to create a meaningful life without the substance.
All of this might feel like a mammoth task, especially when the focal point of a person’s life has been the substance for so long.
However, with a referral through Rehab 4 Addiction, you’re immediately supported to make this stage of your life as easy as possible.
By entering the most suitable treatment programme, your road to recovery can be the start of a healthy life.
It doesn’t matter where the idea of rehab came from (you or maybe someone close to you) so long as you want to do it and are committed to the process.
With determination and honesty, you can get off the drugs and quit the alcohol.
It wouldn’t be fair to act as though rehab isn’t difficult. For the vast majority of people who begin a life of recovery, it’s the hardest challenge they’ll ever have to face.
This doesn’t mean that it won’t be worth it. On the contrary, at the point you’re sober and have been so for a while, it’s likely to be one of the most important things you’ve achieved in life.
When facing recovery, difficulties will come in various guises. Initially, people are usually faced with the initial challenge of the early stages of withdrawal.
The symptoms can be both psychological and physiological and can be very distressing and uncomfortable. This is one of the reasons why people relapse.
There are also triggers that people face. Addiction is usually a way of coping.
When faced with something stressful, people might turn to the substance. With this taken away, it can feel very hard to cope.
If a person has stayed at a private clinic, reintegrating back into life after leaving rehab can be difficult.
It’s essential that people are supported in understanding how to do this and in making lifestyle changes that will support long-term sobriety.
It’s only natural that on the other side of the challenges of recovery, there are endless benefits. The benefits might feel far away and hard to reach the start, but they are possible to gain.
With time, patience and support, your life will change for the better.
Firstly your body will be rid of the toxins in substances that create many health problems. When these are gone and with a healthy approach to eating, drinking soft drinks, and activity levels, your body can build strength and begin to heal damage.
The body has an amazing way of regenerating cells to heal when you look after it.
With a healthier body, your chemical and hormonal balances will start to rebalance. This means that mental health begins to improve.
It affects all emotional aspects of your life, as well as relationships and how you are able to face things. This is a point where you build resilience, which is a vital aspect of recovery.
When your loved ones can see how your health is improving, they’ll be supportive. A space develops where you can start to rebuild damaged relationships and make amends for events in the past.
With particular lifestyle changes, such as cutting old ties, making new connections, and developing new hobbies, a life of purpose begins to unravel.
There are many types of rehabilitation programmes in the Cleveleys area. Whatever your personal circumstances there will be an option to suit you.
There are both NHS options and private options. Private clinics provide an exceptional approach to recovery in the sense that they treat the whole of a person.
Staff consider the addiction and all the interwoven elements. It’s commonly acknowledged that addiction and mental health are very highly linked.
At a private clinic, patients are treated for both.
There are both inpatient and outpatient options. For a person with many responsibilities to maintain, an outpatient service might be more suitable.
Inpatient does, however, provide a total immersive rehabilitation programme.
Specialist care comes as standard on some recovery programmes. Rehab 4 Addiction can discuss this with you further if you’d like to find out more.
At the best private clinics, a variety of treatments will be offered. After a psychiatric assessment, a programme will be drawn up to suit individual needs.
Detox is essential, especially for those who have developed a dependency. A specialist medical team will lead the person through a safe detox in order to ensure withdrawal from the substance is as comfortable as possible.
There will also be psychological therapies to treat how addiction affects the mind and how the brain perpetuates addictive habits. Along with these are alternative therapies to provide the nurturing aspect of treatment.
Finally, 12 Step groups offer an excellent space to develop connections that will support long-term abstinence.
