Rehab 4 Addiction

Drug & Alcohol Rehab in Minster

When a person is struggling from a drug or alcohol dependency, there is only so much they can do alone.

It isn’t something you can just will yourself to get over. It is a medical condition that like any other illness requires specialised treatment to begin to work towards long term recovery.

In many ways, a drug or alcohol dependency can be viewed similarly as a chronic illness. It is a long term condition that requires continuous work and support in order to live a happy and healthy life.

At this point in your journey, the idea of living with sobriety may be hard to imagine. However, with the right support and the willingness to work, you will find it is much more possible than you originally imagined.

So where exactly can you find the help you will be needing?

Well, there are a few options available to you but the most successful and most recommended is checking yourself into rehab.

Rehab

A rehab centre is designed specifically to help those struggling with a drug or alcohol dependency. They do this by offering a variety of treatments designed to help improve your mental and physical health.

There is one important factor to consider when looking for a rehab and that is if you would prefer one ran privately or by the NHS.

Both options have their benefits and they must be carefully considered when trying to find a rehab centre suited for you.

Firstly, we are very lucky to live in a country where free health care is provided. Along with any other medical centre, NHS ran rehab centres are completely free.

They are staffed by hard-working nurses and doctors that work to aid in your recovery to the best of their ability.

However, while you will be getting the top-quality care you sadly won’t be able to get the constant supervision and attention you may need.

Now more than ever the NHS is overrun by those struggling with their mental health. So many people need treatment yet the mental health services are constantly having their funding cut.

While the nurses and doctors will do everything they can to help you, the sad truth is that they are simply spread too thin to give you personalised treatment.

Also, with so many people requiring treatment for a drug or alcohol dependency, there is a high likelihood that you won’t be able to begin your treatment right away.

Despite speed being a key factor in long term recovery, the NHS isn’t able to give a place to everyone that asks. They require proof that you are struggling enough to warrant intervention.

The process can be incredibly stressful and mentally draining leaving many wary of rehabs.

Even when you are offered a place it will be at the end of weeks, possibly even months-long waitlist.

When you get to the top and actually are offered a place there is a very high chance that you will only be offered outpatient treatment in a facility outside the Minster area.

So if you don’t have access to reliable transport your treatment becomes harder to receive.

In comparison with a private rehab centre in order to receive treatment all you have to do is ask for it. You are not required to prove you have a drug or alcohol dependency.

Instead, all you need to do is use our free assessment services, we will then refer you to a rehab centre within the Minster area that is best suited to aid in your recovery journey.

With our services, we will be able to show you that through private rehabilitation programs all your care is made specifically to treat you.

The centre’s staff are not overworked and are able to give you the one to one attention you need and deserve.

We take the time to get to know you, to understand what caused you to turn to substance abuse and what you hope to gain out of your stay at rehab.

Even if you are still unsure if rehab is the right place for you, give us a call.

We can help you come to terms with your own needs and to help you accept the offered help of others.

Please call us and we can begin the recovery journey together.

The treatments

When you have made your decision to check yourself into rehab it is important to familiarise yourself with the recovery journey and the treatments it includes.

This is to prepare yourself mentally for the work you have yet to do and the sobriety to look forward to.

The first treatment you are likely to receive upon your arrival at the rehab centre is detox.

Now, first things first.

The detox is famously the worst part of the recovery process due to the withdrawal symptoms you experience as part of it.

Withdrawal symptoms develop thanks to prolonged substance abuse changing your brain chemistry. It makes your brain crave more and more of the drugs or alcohol to get the same effect as the first few uses.

So when it is deprived of these substances it can react violently, resulting in symptoms such as:

  • Chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Insomnia
  • Paranoia
  • Sweating
  • And mood swings.

When experienced alone these symptoms can be very dangerous and are the reason why you should never attempt to detox alone.

Within a rehab centre, you can be monitored 24hours a day by fully trained medical staff able to administer medication to relieve the symptoms.

The detox acts as the perfect starting off point for the rest of your treatment.

It allows you to focus on your group therapy sessions where you are able to understand why you are drug or alcohol dependent in the first place and how to develop healthier coping mechanisms.

Therapy is such a key part of your treatment it is offered within the aftercare services in the form of either follow up sessions or a referral to a local support group.

How to get in touch

The best way to contact us is by calling 0800 140 4690 and beginning your free assessment.

Your journey towards sobriety starts here.

Good luck, we know you can do it.
