Coming to the conclusion that you may need help with a drug and alcohol abuse problem can be scary. It is a time when you may be feeling extremely fragile, isolated, and nervous about the road ahead.
Usually, that road leads to rehab.
You may be feeling as if such a big step is not necessary, but before you make that possibly fatal decision, it is important for you to understand why considering rehab is in your best interest.
Many people at this stage remain in denial that their problem with drugs or alcohol even exists. With cases like these, it is decidedly harder for us to guide them to recovery, as they are often less open to trying treatments, thinking that they have no need for them.
Others may be aware of their particular situation and are closer to admitting they require help. However, some individuals in this category will also believe that the help they should seek is not professional and that they can ‘fix’ their drug or alcohol addiction at home.
We would recommend rehab to anyone who falls under these two categories. Regardless of their personal beliefs surrounding their situation, any stage of an addiction or abuse problem can cause serious and long-lasting harm, and both would benefit greatly from admission into rehab.
It is important at this time to be 100% honest with our team, so they can understand where you are with accepting your addiction and can provide the right course of action based on that information.
Remember, catching an addiction as early as possible can lead to a more successful and long-term recovery.
There are many reasons why choosing a rehab in Surrey is the right thing to do for an addiction. The main one, however, is how hard it can be to quit at home.
Every year, thousands of people suffering from an addiction will attempt ‘DIY detoxes’ and convince themselves that they can reach a full recovery alone. The sad truth is that many of these people eventually end up relapsing, and sometimes even falling further into drug or alcohol abuse as a result.
There are of course some advantages to a home detox, such as privacy, comfort, and very little or no cost. But overall the cons attached to this option significantly outweigh the pros.
Being alone during such an unpredictable time can be dangerous when trying to withdraw from drugs or alcohol, and though you may be determined at first to abstain, once withdrawal symptoms kick in, and you are left at your lowest, you have very little holding you back from reaching for the substance again.
In a rehab, you will receive around-the-clock care from our highly trained team of medical staff and therapists, so ‘falling off the wagon’ is never a danger.
Treatments and detoxes are also easier and safer when carried out at your chosen rehab, as we can monitor your responses and progress throughout your stay and make any necessary alterations, maximising the likelihood of a quick and effective recovery.
One of the biggest reasons why people tend not to reach out for help in the form of rehab is the misinformation that is spread about what occurs there.
We understand that the unknown can be daunting and that not knowing what will happen at rehab makes it decidedly harder to consider it as an option. We’re here to put your mind at ease.
In helping you understand what may happen during rehab and what treatment you should expect, we hope you will feel less nervous about this crucial step to recovery.
The treatment you receive will highly depend on you, your character, your personal information, and your physical and psychological health. The severity and length of your addiction, as well as the substances involved in your addiction, will also be factored in when deciding on your treatment and rehab experience.
You will, if you have not performed one yourself before rehab, undergo a drug and alcohol detox. This is the first and most necessary step in the process of recovering from an addiction, as it wipes your body clean of the substance.
For any withdrawal symptoms, you may experience due to the detox phase, you will be prescribed the appropriate medication by a doctor on our team. These symptoms such as sickness, headaches, muscle pain, and dizziness are normal when withdrawing from drugs and alcohol, and are very manageable with medicine.
As per your personalised treatment plan that will be created for you as we come to understand you better, you will for the duration of your stay attend several therapy and counseling sessions.
We offer a number of different types of therapies including CBT, DBT, equine therapy, group therapy, individual therapy, art therapy, and family therapy. What you participate in will depend on what we believe will aid your recovery the most.
Treatment will not be stopped even upon leaving our facility, as we will provide you with a personalised aftercare plan. This will help you to continue your improvement even when you’re back home.
