Rehab 4 Addiction is proud to help drug and alcohol addicts located in the Surrey area. Since Surrey offers an eclectic mix of treatment options choosing the correct one can be problematic, especially if you have not sought treatment in the past. Fortunately our advisors at Rehab 4 Addiction are on hand to ‘hand hold’ you through the process. Our help does not conclude with admission. We are on hand to answer any questions you may have both before, during and after you receive your treatment. Our advice is impartial and fully independent. We provide callers with a range of treatment options for both drug and alcohol addiction in the Surrey area. Treatment options typically include home detox, outpatient treatment and fully residential rehabilitation.
A home detox is exactly that: you detox from the comfort of your own home. This means you receive maximum privacy during this testing time. Unfortunately privacy comes at the expense of essential medical attention and counselling when home detox is attempted. This is because those undergoing home detox often do so alone, or in the company of a lay family member with no medical background. Home detoxes often result in relapse. If you wish to undergo a home detox a GP travels to your Surrey home to judge your suitability for such a programme. Factors such as family presence and the severity of addiction are accounted for. If you suffer from a chronic addiction to drugs or alcohol you may be deemed unsuitable for a home detox. This is because withdrawal symptoms occurring during detox may pose extreme health risks.
Another treatment option in Surrey is ‘outpatient’ recovery. Here patients attend a Surrey clinic during the day, perhaps for a few hours in the morning, afternoon or evening. At an outpatient clinic, patients typically attend counselling and therapy sessions following a home or residential detox programme. Outpatient treatment may be ideal for addicts on a budget or for those unable to take time off work.
Residential rehab centres require patients to move into their centre whilst treatment runs its course. This treatment option is by far the superior choice compared to home detox and outpatient treatment explained above. This is because patients leave behind temptation and ‘bad influences’ when they move into the treatment centre.
Rehab 4 Addiction maintains a relationship with residential rehabs in Guildford and Woking. Upon arrival into the rehab centre patients receive a comprehensive physical and psychiatric examination. This examination is conducted by the centre’s psychiatrist. The psychiatrist is a medical doctor able to prescribe medications designed to reduce withdrawal symptoms during detox.
Detoxification is initiated during the first weeks of rehabilitation. Patients receiving treatment in a residential centre are taken care of by a team of medical professionals. The medical staff observe and treat painful withdrawal symptoms. Patients’ food, housekeeping and laundry are taken care of by the centre’s support staff. Patients’ focus is therefore solely centred on recovery goals.
Once detox concludes patients now attend therapy and counselling sessions. These sessions are conducted by a rotating staff of in-house counsellors and therapists. Therapy attempts to treat the mental aspect of drug and/or alcohol addiction. Patients attend one-on-one counselling sessions. Sessions also take place in group settings thus allowing patients to interact with other addicts and thus learn valuable lessons from one another. Typical therapy methods employed include ‘cognitive behavioural therapy’ and ‘acceptance & commitment therapy’.
Surrey rehabs also offer ‘holistic therapies’ as well as traditional psychotherapy. Holistic therapies attempt to improve patients’ over-all sense of well-being, both from a physical and psychological standpoint. Popular holistic therapies include Reiki, mindfulness, reflexology and art therapy.
Centres also provide ‘family therapy’ sessions. This allows patients’ family members to attend and contribute towards their loved one’s therapy sessions. Family members are thus given a platform to voice concerns and receive treatment themselves. The family members of addicts are often equally affected by their loved one’s addiction. Family therapy thus attempts to heal the wounds bore by patients’ family members.
Surrey rehabs offer their patients’ extended aftercare therapy sessions once rehabilitation has concluded. This means patients are able to return to the rehab centre for an extended period during those vital first few weeks and months in recovery.
