Signs I Need to Go to Rehab

Below are ten signs that it may be time to go to rehab. If some or all of these apply to you, then it is time to find treatment:

  1. Your drug abuse has caused physical or mental health problems.
  2. Your relationships have suffered.
  3. You are unable to get through a day without using substances.
  4. Your addiction takes priority over things you used to enjoy.
  5. You are skipping work or school to use substances.
  6. You often lie to support your drug use.
  7. You have been in trouble with the police because of your drug use.
  8. You miss social events because of your addiction.
  9. You have tried quitting alone, and it hasn’t worked.
  10. Your loved ones have urged you to seek help.

What Are My Treatment Options?

There are two types of treatment. You can choose a programme for alcohol rehab or a detox.

Detoxing can be very hard. You will experience some withdrawal symptoms. All of our rehabs in Essex provide round-the-clock medical care. They will look after you through this process.

Once the detox is complete, you can progress with other therapies. Every patient at our rehabs gets a treatment plan for their personal needs.

Below we have outlined the main points about each of your rehab options:

In a medical facility or rehab centre there will be 24/7 assistance and multiple forms of therapy available. This form of treatment is most likely to lead to long-term success.

If you choose to go through detox at home, then there will still be daily medical appointments, therapy, and support sessions as well. This form of rehab is not as safe or as likely to succeed in the long-term.

When attending an inpatient location for the 5-10 days, it takes to complete detox, after which you will be discharged for outpatient care.

Detox at a facility and then therapeutic, medical, and group support for some time afterward while you are either inpatient or outpatient. This is one of the more successful forms of treatment.

When to Get Treatment in Essex

If any of the signs above apply to you, it may be time to get treatment.

Addiction can harm you and your loved ones. It plays a huge role in violent crime, domestic abuse and child neglect.

Getting help for substance abuse helps you and everyone around you.

Benefits of Going to Rehab In Essex

There are many benefits to going to rehab. Here are the main ones:

  • 24/7 access to medical care
  • Safe, supportive environment
  • Access to therapy
  • Focus on holistic health
  • Creating goals and plans to help prevent relapses

The Admissions Process For Rehab in Essex

Treatment starts with a screening process. This will include a detailed medical check.

For the medical check, bring any medication you are currently taking. The doctors will give you new medication to help with the detox. They will also answer any questions you have about the treatment process.

If you are not in a fit state to drive, the clinic will provide transport for you.

Once you enter treatment, you will have access to medical care at all times.

During your stay, there will be meetings with therapists and doctors. They will help you set up a treatment plan with goals and objectives.

After detox is complete, you have the option of rehab. This includes support groups, counselling and therapy.

rehab process

The Rehab Process In Essex

Here are the main steps in the treatment process:

1. Intake

The first step is to phone our team. They will assess you and explain your options. The main things they will ask about are:

  • Your medical history and history with drugs
  • What medication you are taking
  • Whether you have any mental health problems

Our experts will then create a tailored plan for your needs.

2. Detox

Treatment at our Essex rehab centres begins with a detox. During the detox, patients must stay clean while their body gets rid of all toxins. Medical experts will look after you through any withdrawal symptoms. They will give you any medication you need to get through this stage.

3. Rehab

After the detox, rehab is there to treat the mental side of addiction. Rehab can include one-to-one and group therapy.

One form of group therapy is family therapy. This invites the client’s family to help in the therapy process.

Other forms of therapy include:

  • Art therapy
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
  • Contingency Management (CM)
  • Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
  • Holistic therapy
  • Music therapy

4. Recovery

A big part of recovery of aftercare. This is what happens when you leave treatment.

Aftercare is all about preventing relapses. Our treatment centres offer a range of aftercare services. They include:

We will help you to get clean, and stay clean too.

What Does a Typical Day in Rehab Look Like?

1. Morning

You will start the day with a healthy breakfast. Then you will have a meeting to discuss your progress. This may include exercises such as meditation.

2. Noon and Evening

Around noon, you will eat lunch. Then you start treatment, such as one-to-one therapy and group therapy. There may be other therapies too, such as art therapy and 12-step meetings. After this, you will have some free time.

3. Night

After a healthy dinner and any necessary medication, it will be lights out. Sleep is vital for your body to return to health.

What Is The Duration Of Rehab?

Treatment can last anything from two weeks to six months. A detox can take as little as two weeks. Full rehab can take several months.

The most common programmes in our Essex centres last between 28 days and six weeks. The more time you spend in treatment, the more likely you are to remain sober.

Does Rehab In Essex Cost Much?

The NHS will pay for support and counselling. They may also pay for some medication. However, for a residential rehab, you will have to pay around £4000 for 28 days. This does vary between different rehabs.

medically assisted detox

The Benefits of Medically Assisted Detox

Detoxing at home is dangerous. The chances of a relapse are high. An alcohol detox can even cause death.

In our rehabs in Essex, you will receive top-quality medical care.

The detox period is a delicate stage for the body. It is trying to get rid of toxins. The withdrawal symptoms can be extreme.

Home detoxes can cause many unwanted symptoms. These include:

  • Acute alcohol withdrawal syndrome
  • Delirium tremens
  • Seizures
  • Anxiety
  • Muscle aches
  • Insomnia and fatigue
  • Problems with the stomach and digestion, such as diarrhoea, cramps, vomiting and nausea
  • Rapid heartbeat and high blood pressure
  • Damage to mental health
  • Relapses

Can Family & Friends Visit Me During Inpatient Treatment?

Yes, they can. Family support is helpful when you are going through rehab. Make sure to check the visiting hours at your treatment centre. Family therapy is also a positive tool in recovery.

What Types of Therapy Can I Access During Rehab?

There are many types of therapy used in rehab. These are the most common:

Acceptance and commitment therapy involves finding the root cause behind the need for substance abuse to deal with fear or pain and then finding healthy ways to address it.

One reason people become addicts is that they use drugs to escape overwhelming emotions because they are not able to express their feelings. Art therapy is a way for people to express themselves in a safe and nurturing environment.

Cognitive behavioural therapy uses talking to reframe the way that you think so that you can stop negative thought patterns while removing negative cognitive distortions.

Dialectical behaviour therapy involves having your feelings validated by a therapist while also learning ways to be mindful, tolerant, and find a way towards acceptance.

Counselling includes a trained counsellor advising on how to change thought patterns and lifestyle choices positively. It involves talking through your problems with one person, and coming to a resolution or revelation about your behaviours.

This is a way of play-acting through very troubling or traumatic incidents so that the emotions attached to them can be dissected and overcome.

This allows for open communication between family members in a safe, controlled, and supportive environment.

This is usually a smaller group led by a licensed mental health practitioner where people dealing with similar issues can come together and share their feelings, struggles, and successes.

Mind, body, and spirit are all addressed in this type of therapy. These therapies are highly tailored to the individual to meet their physical, mental, and spiritual needs.

Music therapy is used to relieve anxiety and allow a safe space for self-expression. Much like art therapy, this is a good way for people with trouble emoting to show how they are feeling through creating and listening to music.

This therapy covers the unconscious motivations behind certain feelings and actions. It is much more clinical than counselling.

Many times, long-term drug users are physically weak due to a lack of proper nutrition, organ damage, and other issues. This therapy helps you get your body back to a healthy state to help improve mental fitness.

Telling Your Work You’re Going to Rehab in Essex

It can be difficult to tell your boss you are checking in to rehab. Here are some useful tips:

  • Be honest.
  • Prepare some answers to their questions before you bring up the subject. For example, how long will you be gone? Who will be taking over your workload?
  • Make sure you prepare things before you leave. Don’t leave projects unfinished.
  • Know your rights as an employee.
  • Getting treatment is the most important thing. If your relationship with your boss suffers, then so be it.
  • Don’t avoid the conversation. It is best to address it as soon as possible.
  • Remember: you are not obliged to tell them anything if you do not want to.

Can I Leave Rehab Early?

Leaving rehab early can set you back a long way. It can also be bad for your health if you haven’t finished detoxing. We would not recommend leaving rehab early unless you have to.

after rehab

What Happens After Rehab?

Alcohol rehab in Essex is the first step on the road to recovery. That’s why our programmes include 12 months of aftercare.

Good aftercare helps patients stay clean. We encourage those in recovery to go to Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anoymous meetings in the Essex area.

Relapse is highest in the first few months after rehab. An average of 50% of people relapse during this time. To stay sober, you can do the following:

  • One-to-one therapy. This is one of the best ways to avoid relapse. It helps by targeting the mental side of addiction.
  • Check-ups. These make sure that you stay on the right track.
  • 12-steps programmes. These support groups can help you to feel connected.
  • Alternative support groups. These are led by licensed professionals to help people improve their lives.
  • Sober living half-houses. These can help you have somewhere when you first leave rehab.
  • Having a sponsor. A sponsor is a great way to get support from someone who has been through the same things as you.

Tips To Help A Loved One Into Rehab In Essex

  • Try not to get angry. Listen to them.
  • Be supportive, rather than blaming them.
