The main goal when it comes to drug & alcohol rehab is to achieve long-term recovery from the substance you are dependent on.
However, there are many ways in which addiction treatments can change your life, from rebuilding relationships to understanding triggers.
There are many treatment options available and of course some work better than others. That’s because everyone is different.
Every addiction is different and therefore every recovery is different. At Rehab 4 Addiction in Thornbury, we aim to work on your recovery individually, with bespoke programmes tailored to your specific needs.
We don’t just offer a one-size-fits-all programme, because it doesn’t.
Understanding your addiction, from the length to the cause of the problem right through to therapy preferences and areas of your life you need to repair is our way of changing your life for the better.
Across the rehabilitation industry, bespoke treatment plans are highly regarded as a successful way to reach long-term recovery.
Not only will you be treated in a way to suit your specific needs but also be provided aftercare that ensures you stay on track after you leave our care.
We’ll also alleviate the waiting list time you may experience when asking for help through your GP. As we get right to the core of the problem and work out a way that we can get you on a better path sooner.
That’s why we recommend attending our private residential drug & alcohol rehab in Thornbury.
One of the many great benefits of joining us for residential care is that our on-hand experts are there for you every step of the way. From the withdrawal process during detox to therapy and support sessions to leaving our care and receiving aftercare.
We’re a hands-on facility that only wants to see you thrive and receiving care as an inpatient is one of the best chances of long-term recovery.
If you’ve become concerned about your drug or alcohol consumption, or maybe you’ve noticed some changes in a loved one, our drug & alcohol rehab in Thornbury could be for you.
If you’ve noticed any of the following symptoms in yourself or a loved one, you may need to seek support.
Symptoms such as losing interest in the things you would usually love to do, lying about your whereabouts or bad habits, feeling isolated from friends or family, have a lack of interest in your appearance and in particular your personal hygiene.
You may also notice physical signs such as dizziness, tiredness, feeling confused or disorientated, fluctuating temperature, low blood pressure, weak muscles, shakes, a slow pulse, difficulty breathing, redness in the face or a blue tinge to the nails or lips.
At Rehab 4 Addiction in Thornbury, we know how difficult it can be to recognise and accept that an addiction is present, and that’s why we want to be a listening ear for your problems.
We can offer you or your loved one tailored advice about what they’re going through and push them in the right direction. We know it’s a huge step to take but we also know that seeking professional support is one of the most important steps you can take.
Drug or alcohol addiction is a mental illness and much like anxiety or depression, it needs to be treated because the prolonged use of substances can have a detrimental effect on your psychological health. You need to look after your mind as well as your body.
Addiction is part mind and part body, and detoxification is simply the first hurdle when it comes to drug or alcohol rehabilitation. You may become dependent on a substance to the point where your thoughts are overwhelmed by the need to get the next ‘fix’.
This can have devastating effects on your relationships with friends or family, for your career or finances and for your general well-being.
Immediately ending consumption for someone who suffers from a drug or alcohol addiction can be life-threatening and this is why we will always advise visiting a drug & alcohol rehab in Thornbury over trying to go ‘cold turkey’ alone.
We cannot stress enough the importance of detoxing your body in a safe environment with on-hand experts for the struggling and oftentimes stressful experience of withdrawal.
Rehabilitation is not a one size fits all. That’s why we aim to offer as many different treatment options as possible to fit your detox and therapy journey. For some, detox can be a small step toward a better future, for others it can be a stressful experience.
At Rehab 4 Addiction we recommend that no matter the severity of your addiction, residential rehabilitation is always the most successful form of recovery.
Being in a safe and welcoming environment whilst you experience the detox process means you’ll have on-hand professional help to guide you through withdrawal and get you on the right track, ready for therapy.
For some people speaking in a group, the setting can be daunting. However, numerous patients who leave our drug & alcohol rehab in Thornbury recommend this therapy option for many reasons.
When you spend time with people sharing similar experiences and on the same journey as yourself you are open to more perspectives regarding addiction and recovery.
These people can help you see where your issues may have affected others around you and affords you a wider scope of how you can resolve these problems post-rehab.
Having a strong network of friends and family around you as you continue your journey after rehab can also create a lasting sense of motivation.
Being able to check in with those around you and catch up on those experiencing the same journey can give you the power you need to continue after you leave our care creating a long-lasting recovery with a lower chance of relapse.
However, not everyone is ready to open up to new people and this is understandable. That’s why at Rehab 4 Addiction in Thornbury we aim to offer as many therapy options as possible.
For those who wish to speak to a therapist on a one-on-one basis, we’ll recommend counselling or cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) where you can get to the root of the underlying cause and attachment to the drug or alcohol in a more intimate setting.
Others can also find themselves unable to open up verbally in general and that’s why we also provide alternative therapies such as art or music therapy.
Being able to express yourself using different mediums can make understanding your addiction that bit easier if speaking about your problems can be distressing.
There are multiple problems that may occur due to an addiction being present. You may have unintentionally isolated yourself from friends and family or lost a job and working opportunities due to your resulting behaviour.
However, these are not irreversible. Through alternative therapies, you can unlearn harmful behaviours in numerous ways and learn to live a less stressful life through options such as mindfulness practices or meditation.
Once you have recognised that substance addiction is present you must be ready to commit yourself to the recovery process.
Although coming to terms with the problem can be a stressful moment, our friendly staff are here to guide you in the right direction so you can feel secure and encouraged to reach a better lifestyle and a healthier future.
Our initial assessments are quick and easy to do. Simply set aside five to ten minutes of your time to give us a call on 0800 140 4690 and our staff will get to work understanding your personal needs.
