While it is often stigmatised as a lack of self-control and discipline, addiction is a debilitating and chronic brain disease. People who suffer from drug and alcohol addiction are consumed by their illness and insatiable desire for chemical substances.
When battling addiction, people will suffer from profound physical, mental, and socioeconomic effects. Whether they have symptoms of insomnia, depression, or they have become socially isolated, the effects are great. If left untreated, drug and alcohol addiction can even lead to death.
The effects of addiction are prevalent and varied in our communities, and they are not limited to the user. While the user will suffer from the direct effects, friends and families will also suffer immense indirect consequences.
This can be in the form of the emotional stress of witnessing a loved one suffering in their battle against addiction. Additionally, around 40% of violent crimes in Hampshire are alcohol-related.
If you are based in Fleet and are someone who is suffering from the effects of drug or alcohol addiction, whether directly or indirectly, contact Rehab 4 Addiction today.
At Rehab 4 Addiction, we will ensure that you or your loved one finds the right drug and alcohol rehab in Fleet for you. Whether you have budgetary concerns or unique requirements, we will identify the right personalised programme to facilitate your recovery.
While coming to terms with the idea that you might be addicted to chemical substances is daunting, it is a step in the right direction. Rather than ruing the situation that you find yourself in, you should focus on the positives.
You should be grateful for the fact that you acknowledge there is a need for change, and you have recognised it before it is too late. Additionally, being regretful of the situation means there is a willingness to get healthier.
If you are committed to the idea of recovering and sustaining sobriety, you should absolutely consider going to a residential rehabilitation centre. While some people do try to recover independently, the success rate is far greater when they are inpatients at a residential rehab.
This is because not only do outpatients lack the resources to sustain their sobriety, they are stagnant due to their toxic environments. They are constantly exposed to the environmental or social factors which may have led them to their addiction.
As a result, they suffer from relapses due to the triggers which prevail in their home environment. As an inpatient at a residential drug and alcohol rehab in Fleet, you will be in a new environment that is supervised by a team of medical professionals. Not only this, but you’ll have access to 24/7 support.
There are many options to choose from, and it can be overwhelming. That’s why we have simplified the process for you with our preadmission assessment and referral service.
Over the phone, you will provide us with your personal details, free of cost. A consultant psychiatrist will note factors such as budgetary requirements, genetic predispositions, as well as physical and mental wellbeing to locate the right provider for you.
Each of our providers in England are regulated by the Care Quality Commission, meaning you can rely on a high standard of treatment and medical supervision.
The drug and alcohol rehab in Fleet will create a personalised rehabilitation programme for your unique needs. Personalisation is paramount to maximising responsiveness levels to your recovery programme.
There is an incredible amount of variables which means each addiction is different to the next. These variables include the substance used, quantity, potential causes, genetic predispositions, and more.
After your preadmission assessment and referral, you’ll go to your residential drug and alcohol rehab in Fleet. The rehab process will begin with the subject undergoing a detoxification stage. In this stage, you’ll experience the withdrawal of harmful substances from your body.
This is a medicated detox, and your medication will be prescribed by medical professionals, in this case, an addiction psychiatrist. This stage will last between 7 to 10 days depending on the individual’s response to the withdrawal.
After the removal of harmful substances, the subject will undergo a range of therapy to gain insight into addiction and new coping methods. The therapy options will come in the form of holistic, cognitive behavioural, dialectical behavioural therapy, as well as motivational interviewing.
Holistic therapy concerns the treatment of a person in their entirety, their mind, body, and spirit. Therapeutic techniques can come in the form of learning mindfulness, yoga, and much more. This is all-encompassing, instead of treating individual symptoms.
Dialectical Behavioural Therapy is effective for those who are suffering from trauma and intense emotions. It is often used to support those recovering from addiction, borderline personality disorders or those with histories of abuse. It encourages open communication and the management and awareness of our emotions.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, on the other hand, is an effort to change someone’s thought process and habits. Subjects will gain better insight into thoughts that are problematic, and subvert these and view things in a positive light.
Motivational Interviewing is an effective method that has the intention of establishing goals and objectives. Its goal-oriented objectives help subjects explore their commitments and intentions, which in turn sustains their levels of motivation towards recovery.
After around 28 days spent in the residential rehab, you’ll leave the residential drug and alcohol rehab in Fleet. When you leave, you will be capable enough to sustain your sobriety and prevent future relapses when you return to your families and social circle in Fleet. While your experience spent in the drug and alcohol rehab in Fleet is invaluable, it is also lasting.
