What does a residential treatment programme consist of?

Many people often harbour misconceptions about residential treatment and what happens at rehab.

The truth is that residential rehab centres are welcoming and warm places that offer quality treatment programmes and luxury amenities including nutritious food and services such as laundry.

Most treatment programmes last for around 28 days though this depends on the severity of your addiction and the kinds of treatment staff think you would benefit from.

The first step of any programme is to begin detoxing. This is always conducted under medical supervision and is not advised to be attempted at home.

Detoxes allow the body to adjust slowly to the reduction in substances.

Withdrawal symptoms are a part of detoxing though these can be managed with help from medical staff who can prescribe medication if it is needed.

Unfortunately, the more severe the addiction the longer the withdrawal symptoms will last.

For most clients, detoxing takes between a week to ten days and includes symptoms such as feeling nauseous, headaches, and anxiety.

Once you have completed this programme you will be able to advance to rehabilitation therapy which can significantly help change your attitudes and behaviours towards your addiction.

Your programme is always tailored to your personal needs therefore staff can determine which types of therapy they believe you will benefit from.

From dialectical behaviour therapy to one-to-one sessions, you can begin to lay the foundations for positive habits and healthy coping mechanisms.

Once treatment is completed you will be able to return home, putting into practice all the skills that have been learnt.

The first twelve months are very important in your sobriety journey and with aftercare provided by your chosen clinic, you will be in safe hands, ensuring you can succeed at home and in your new life.

What therapies are on offer?

Rehab is a very personal journey meaning a variety of services are always on offer.

During your stay at a Dinnington facility you can expect to take advantage of some of the following services:

1. Cognitive behavioural therapy

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is used to challenge negative thoughts and behaviours, allowing you to explore difficult thoughts and feelings with a licensed therapist.

2. Group therapy

Group therapy allows you to express yourself in front of others in similar situations. This is a judgement-free zone in which you can explore unpleasant feelings managed by a session leader.

3. Holistic therapy

This is very beneficial for many people and can help treat the mind and emotions. Holistic therapy is a spiritual form of therapy and can help in regaining both the physical and energy balances of the body.

What is aftercare?

Sometimes, after a stay in a rehab facility, the thought of returning home can feel anxiety-inducing. This is because you now have to put into practice everything learnt during your time in treatment.

Rehab 4 Addiction can offer you support and guidance every step of the way and we only work with treatment providers who include aftercare in their treatment programmes.

Aftercare is a great way of allowing clients to maintain the skills and coping mechanisms learnt during their time in treatment.

Many clinics will help you put plans into places, such as relapse prevention, which can help equip you with the necessary knowledge and skills to cope with difficult thoughts and feelings. Recovery is a daily commitment and rehab isn’t a quick fix.

You must be willing to remain motivated and committed to your sobriety journey during treatment and after it too.

Our team can also help signpost you to local community groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous where you can meet local people and support each other on your path to recovery.

Having a support network can be vital when leaving treatment as it increases the chances of long-term recovery.

Get in touch with our team today and make that change in your life, leaving addiction behind for good.
