If you’re not quite ready to call, read on for our answers to some frequently asked questions on the subject of addiction recovery.
When you call, we’ll go through a short assessment with you to determine the severity of your problem.
If you have a moderate to severe addiction present, there is a strong likelihood that we will recommend a residential rehab stay, however you don’t have to attend this form of rehab if you are not comfortable.
We will make our decision based on considerable experience working in the area of drug and alcohol addiction, however, there are some points about residential rehab that you may wish to consider before you make your decision:
Residential rehab programmes are tailored to the individual, so the length of stay will depend on your particular needs and how receptive you are to the treatment.
That said, around 28 days is a typical stay, as this allows time for a full detox and new healthy behaviours to be formed.
It’s important that you are open-minded with regards to your discharge date, which can be reviewed during your programme, and set forwards or back.
Either way, the rehabilitation process should not be hurried.
Whether you decide to complete your drug or alcohol rehab in Tenbury Wells or with another one of our partners across the UK, the treatment programme will be tailored to your needs and will address both the physical and psychological aspects of your illness.
Once admitted, your doctors will go through the intricacies of your treatment with you, although this will inevitably consist of detox and a wide range of psychological treatments.
Detox should not be attempted independently, due to the risks involved with the process, however, attending a professional rehab clinic will give you access to a highly trained team of addiction recovery specialists, who will monitor your safety throughout.
Once sober, you are able to focus on the psychological treatments, which will include one to one counselling with an addiction recovery specialist, as well as some of the world’s most recognised psychotherapy treatments used for addiction recovery.
This may include, any or all of the following:
The main reason that independent detox is not recommended is due to the risks that arise from the withdrawal symptoms.
When you go through detox for drugs and alcohol, you will experience a range of different symptoms, depending on the substances you’re addicted to and how long you have been addicted to them for.
The following are likely:
Whilst some of these are potentially dangerous whilst alone, you will be monitored for your safety and comfort, with prescription medications provided to relieve symptoms, where possible.
It’s not an easy process to go through, but the benefits will far outweigh the initial discomfort and it will set you on the best possible path to recovery.
Addiction recovery is a lifelong process that will need to be managed indefinitely, in order that your sobriety remains intact.
The good news is that it gets easier as time passes, and for the first year at least you will receive aftercare services as an extension of your residential rehab stay.
This will involve regular sessions with your recovery team and encouragement to attend local drug and alcohol, abstinence groups.
Family therapy sessions provide the opportunity for your close family and friends to learn more about your illness and prepare to support you in your return to your home life in Tenbury Wells, so if offered, this is a valuable part of your residential treatment.
Many people also benefit from lasting relationships with those they recovered alongside, particularly if they live locally to you.
Here at Rehab 4 Addiction, we can begin your pre-admission for you, sometimes offering your recovery start date within hours of your call.
