What happens in a drug and alcohol rehab in Rishton?

It is normal to feel apprehensive about entering a drug and alcohol rehab, and nerves are to be expected when you are uprooting your life so much.

The majority of this fear usually stems from the unknown.

By not knowing what goes on during a rehabilitation programme – or having a warped sense of what occurs in one due to stereotypes portrayed on-screen and online – you unknowingly welcome anxiety and worries about your own personal rehab journey, which can keep you from seeking treatment.

We do not want this to be the case for our clients as rehab is no place to fear, but instead, a welcoming environment where you can heal, learn and start your new life.

To help ease these nerves, below is a breakdown of what you can expect from a drug and alcohol rehab in Rishton, and the summarised process of how we will get you there.

First of all, you will be assessed by our admissions team, usually over the phone. This quick and easy initial assessment will simply survey some personal information that we will need to better understand as a client.

We will also need some details about your addiction, such as the length of time you have used for, the particular substance or multiple substances you have used in the past, the method of abuse (snorting, injecting, smoking, etc.), and the overall severity of your addiction.

This information will help us narrow down your options for treatment, and will allow us to determine where would be best to place you. Most of the time, we will advise a residential rehab programme in a drug and alcohol rehab.

When you arrive at the chosen rehab centre, you will have time to meet with the staff members who will be taking care of you, unpack, and have a tour of the facility.

This will be your home for the next few weeks, so make sure to take your time getting to know the area and the people that you will be sharing your journey with.

At this time you will also meet with a doctor, who will perform a secondary assessment of you.

This assessment will evaluate the state of your physical and psychological health, allowing us to further narrow down your treatment options.

If you have not undergone one already, you will most likely undergo a full drug and alcohol detox. Though this can be a daunting step on the road to recovery, we assure you that it is one of the most necessary steps you will take on your journey.

A detox works to rid your body of all the substances and toxins left behind from drug or alcohol use, leaving your body to start healing and recovering on a ‘clean slate’.

It is highly likely that during a detox you will experience several withdrawal symptoms. These can include muscle pain, headaches, nausea, dizziness, fatigue and mood swings. If any of these symptoms do occur a doctor can prescribe you medication to ease them.

After detox, it will be time to begin the rest of your treatment – largely consisting of therapy and counselling. There are many different forms of therapy that you may encounter during your stay in rehab, all of which will be decided by the results from the earlier assessments.

This is to ensure that you only receive treatment that is likely to work well for you, rather than undergoing all methods of treatment regardless of their effectiveness.

When your time in rehab draws to a conclusion, the bulk of the responsibility to continue your improvement will of course fall to you as you leave rehab and re-enter the outside world. We will, however, always be there if you need us.

Our 24/7 helpline is always up and running, our team can answer any questions or give any advice you may need, your detailed aftercare plan will guide you through your new substance-free life, and additional appointments can be made for you at your chosen clinic if necessary.

If you do happen to notice any signs of a relapse in your life at this time, please do not hesitate to contact us once more.
