Why go to rehab?

Rehab has many benefits.

It is first and foremost a place of healing designed specifically to offer you top quality treatment in order to aid in your recovery.

Now, you may be asking yourself, why not just work through the treatments yourself and then you don’t have to deal with the hassle of rehab.

To begin with, one of the key treatments involved is detox.

The detox is the process in which you are weaned off drugs and alcohol over a period of time. It allows you to work through the withdrawal symptoms so that you can continue your treatments without the distraction of cravings.

The problem is that you should never attempt the detox alone or without fully trained medical staff monitoring you. This is mainly due to the effects of the withdrawal symptoms.

Withdrawal symptoms are a result of your brains changed chemistry. After prolonged substance abuse your brain becomes used to drugs or alcohol-producing dopamine, the feel-good chemical.

Soon your brain begins to crave the substances that release the good chemicals resulting in the development of a dependency.

When a dependency has been developed, depriving your brain of the substances that it craves results in is reacting violently.

Your brain now believes you require drugs or alcohol in order to produce dopamine at all.

Withdrawal symptoms are famously hard to deal with.

The common symptoms are:

  • Nausea
  • Sweating
  • Chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Insomnia
  • Paranoia
  • Mood swings

These symptoms can very easily prove too much for your body to handle resulting in needless pain and suffering.

Within the safety of a rehab centre, your detox will be monitored 24 hours a day by fully trained medical staff.

This staff will be able to keep you safe and as comfortable as possible by being able to provide medication to ease the symptoms should they prove too much for you to handle.

It is simply not safe to even attempt the detox outside of a rehab centre and it is most likely impossible to complete it alone.

You also can’t just skip the detox and attempt to move on alone to the next treatment. The detox allows you to focus without the distractions of cravings.

The next treatment you would require is therapy and you can’t do that alone.

Substance abuse doesn’t just happen, it is often a symptom of a deeper psychological issue that needs to be addressed.

Substance abuse could be self-medication for a number of issues such as:

  • Past trauma
  • An eating disorder
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • A dramatic change of circumstances such as losing a job or becoming homeless
  • Domestic abuse

All these issues need to be addressed in order for you to achieve long term recovery. Within a rehab centre, you will be asked to join group therapy sessions.

Here, along with others staying at the centre, you will work to unpack your trauma and improve your mental health. You will be taught healthier coping mechanisms and how to avoid triggers for your cravings.

This simply isn’t possible on your own.

You require support and professional help in order to achieve long term recovery.

Another thing that can only be offered within a rehab centre is a relapse prevention plan.

This is a plan designed by professionals specifically for you and is catered around your recovery and how to improve both your physical and mental health.

It can contain elements such as a nutrition plan so that you can prepare a balanced diet and begin to repair the damage done by prolonged substance abuse.

It will also refer you to a support group within the Peacehaven area.

A support group along with following up therapy sessions is the best way to remain on track when you’re not being constantly monitored. It gives you accountability and support for your journey, but it also allows you the space to work on your own.

Even when you have finished your treatment you still need help.

The recovery journey doesn’t just end when sobriety is achieved. You have to keep going so that your recovery is long term.

Rehab centres know how to aid in long term recovery, they know that it is a hard journey and that many people feel alone as they work through the process. You need to trust that they just want to help you.

That even if you work through the entire process alone it would have been so much easier and safer if you had done it with them

The journey to recovery is like climbing a mountain, checking into rehab doesn’t mean they will carry you up.

Instead, they cut away what was weighing you down and making the climb harder and they give you the tools to climb yourself.

They just want to provide you with the tools and skills to get to sobriety.

What now?

The best thing you can do now is pick up your phone and give us a call at 0800 140 4690.

We are ready and waiting to help you see that a drug and alcohol-free life is closer than you think.

Please, let us help you climb the mountain and achieve sobriety.
