One of the biggest challenges in facing and overcoming addiction can be a lingering denial that there is an addiction in the first place. You may find yourself making excuses such as “well, I’ve had a hard time recently” or “I can stop drinking as much once X happens”.
The fact of the matter is, life will always involve stress, to a greater or lesser extent. If you are constantly turning to booze or alcohol to deal with that stress, it is likely you have developed a problem.
Most people can enjoy alcohol recreationally, without ever developing an addiction or dependence. However, a small minority simply cannot manage moderation, and therefore abstinence and recovery is the only way to go.
If you find that aspects of your life have been negatively affected by your own excessive drinking or drug abuse – such as your love life, your personal relationships, or your career – it is more than likely that you are in addiction.
If this is the case, the best chance you have of making a full recovery is to attend rehab.
Rehab is one of the most expensive addiction treatments on the market, but there is good reason for this – it is the most effective method of treating addiction and breaking out of substance abuse.
This is because you will be able to get help with every part of the recovery journey – everything from detox to therapy to aftercare.
You will be able to get clean in a safe, secure environment, and have the opportunity to address your issues without worrying about the day-to-day stresses of the outside world.
The length and cost of your stay will depend on a number of different factors, to be discussed during your initial telephone consultation. However, most rehab services users tend to stay for around 28 days.
This is ample time to get sober, recovery physically, go through your treatment programme, and prepare for reintegration into regular life.
The professional staff at the rehab facility will be there to help you every step of the way, to ensure that you have the best possible chance of getting into recovery and staying there for the long term.
At rehab, you will be able to fully detox under the guidance and observation of medical professionals. This is the only safe way to do this – do not try to detox by yourself, it is extremely dangerous.
They will manage your substance intake carefully, and likely reduce it over a number of days before coming to a complete stop.
This whole process can last up to 10 days – this depends on the severity of your alcohol abuse and your condition when first arriving at rehab.
The staff will be able to help you through the unpleasant side effects of withdrawal, which can include general nausea, excessive shaking or sweating, restlessness, anxiety, and muscle pains. These sensations have the potential to be very unpleasant, but they will not last for long.
Once you are through the physical challenges of detox, you will be able to focus on your therapy programme.
Your therapy plan will be put together in detail towards the start of your stay. What it involves will depend slightly upon your own needs and the severity of your addiction.
It is likely to include some combination of CBT, DBT, counselling, group sessions, motivational therapy, and other holistic activities such as meditation and light exercise such as gardening.
The goal of putting this plan together is to help give you a better understanding of your addiction and the tools to cope with any cravings and avoid relapse going forward.
You will also put together a detailed plan for relapse prevention before you leave, to maximise your chances of staying in recovery for the long term.
We currently only refer people to private rehab centres, all of which have a different cost.
Once we have been through your telephone consultation with you, we will be able to inform you on the specifics of how much it will cost, and how long you will need to be there to complete treatment.
We are also happy to advise on any options that you might have in order to ensure treatment is affordable.
The advantage of getting treatment through a private rehab, aside from high standards of care and accommodation, is that you will be able to begin treatment as soon as possible.
You will not need to linger on a waiting list, as you would probably need to do through the NHS or equivalent. Treating addiction as quickly as possible is a big factor in the success of a person’s attempt to get into recovery. In other words, the sooner you get into rehab, the better.
They will be able to talk you through the referral process and answer any more questions that you might have.
We understand that going to rehab is a daunting step, but there is every chance that it could be the best decision that you will ever make.
