Is private for you?

In this country, we are lucky enough to have the NHS. With so many countries around the world without free health care, it may seem silly to not use their services when you need them.

While the rehabilitation services provided by the NHS are good they are unfortunately underappreciated by the government. Like most of the mental health services, the NHS provides the funding has been drastically cut.

Now more than ever they are overwhelmed by the sheer number of people asking for help leading to them having no choice but to prioritise certain people.

They would ask you to prove you are struggling enough with a drug or alcohol dependency in order to even be considered for their services. This process can take a long time and prove to be very stressful.

Even if you are approved your treatment most likely will be at the end of a very long waitlist. You could have to wait weeks or even months to begin your treatments.

Your treatments may also take place outside of the Rawmarsh area and will be outpatient. So you will have to travel in for each session stretching out your treatments and making the entire process much harder than it needs to be.

Within private rehab, all you have to do is ask for help and you will get it as soon as possible. The well-staffed facilities are able to give you the time and attention you deserve.

What are the treatments?

The one constant between all rehab centres we may refer you to is that at their core they are a place of healing.

The treatments they offer are only designed to help you work towards long term recovery.

There are two main treatments you will receive during your stay and they are, The detox and therapy.

To begin with, the detox is the process of ridding your body of all drugs or alcohol in your systems and allows you to safely work through the withdrawal symptoms.

Withdrawal symptoms are what happens when a person who has developed a drug or alcohol dependency goes through prolonged periods of time without abusing their substance of choice.

This is because substance abuse changes your brain chemistry. When you first start using drugs or alcohol they create dopamine, the feel-good chemical in your brain.

As you continue to use them your brain gets used to the dopamine they create and over time rely on them for the dopamine rush. But it also needs more and more of the substance to create the same rush.

When you stop abusing the substance that your brain became used to it can react violently.

The withdrawal symptoms are the result and they can be incredibly uncomfortable or even dangerous if experienced alone. You should never attempt to detox alone.

During your detox, you will be monitored 24 hours a day by fully trained medical staff who are able to provide medication that will relieve the symptoms.

The detox is the best way to give you a fresh start to focus on the rest of your treatments.

As substance abuse is often a symptom of a deeper mental health problem, therapy is a standard part of your treatment.

It is also one that will follow us in aftercare once you leave the rehab centre.

The main point of therapy is for you to learn healthy coping mechanisms to replace your substance abuse with. You will do this through regular group sessions that are monitored by a therapist.

You will also gain tools to avoid triggers for your cravings so that once you’re no longer constantly supervised you can avoid a relapse.

Following your stay at rebab, you will be referred to a local support group to continue your work on improving your mental health.

What now?

The best thing you can do now is to give us a call and let your treatment begin.

Good luck.
