We have lots of experience helping people get treatment for addiction in Wiltshire.
This is a short case study about one of the people who got treatment with our help.
Keith is a 48-year-old IT manager from Wiltshire. Keith has had a successful career. However, he has had a ‘hard life’ compared to most people. Keith’s father abandoned his family when he was three years old, and he was later abused by his stepfather.
When Keith was 18, he moved away to go to University. Keith was married by the time he was 24, but he sadly lost his wife to cancer when he was 39. Keith has two children, and he’s since remarried.
Keith suffers from severe anxiety and mild depression due to this trauma. Keith takes anti-depressants but he also ‘self-medicates’ with alcohol and what he says are ‘social drugs.’
However, Keith got to the point where he needed to drink alcohol all the time. This included when Keith was at his place of work. Keith’s manager smelt the alcohol on him. Keith was then suspended from his duties as an IT manager.
Luckily, Keith’s employer knew how to deal with this. His supervisor, Gary, contacted Rehab 4 Addiction. Our admissions team found a suitable rehab centre for Keith in Wiltshire. Keith went to rehab for a 28-day period. During this time, Keith received modern therapy sessions. They taught him how to cope with his anxiety in ways that do not involve substance misuse.
Keith has now completed his programme, and he’s back at work. He’s now been sober for around eight months, and he now feels his life has been ‘put back together.’ He attributes his success to the help he received from rehab in Wiltshire.
When you attend one of our Wiltshire rehab centres, you get a full psychiatric assessment. After this, you will have an induction. This is to give you a feel for the rehab centre. Therapy sessions only start once you’ve had a bit of time to adjust to your new living space.
Once you begin therapy, your therapist will keep a careful eye on your progress. You will also take part in holistic therapies and 12-step meetings.
In our inpatient rehabs in Wiltshire, an experienced and highly-trained team of staff will look after you. They understand the ins and outs of addiction and recovery. You will receive a top level of medical care. You will also get great psychological support from our doctors and counsellors.
Most of all, you will be part of a community that is all about recovery. You will learn how to find a better meaning to life than substance abuse. You will meet peers who know what you’re going through. You will receive their support as well as that of the doctors and counsellors.
The admission process for drug rehab in Wiltshire is simple. It involves a full check-up and ends with the creation of a treatment plan.
The first step is to call in to get some free advice on services offered. The referral team are available 24/7 and can give informed advice. They will also help you to arrange a time to come in for an initial screening.
This step can be done over the phone or in person. There are a lot of people in the Wiltshire area who require rehab services. There may not be a slot open straight away. You may be asked to join a waiting list.
To see which programme fits your needs, there will be a pre-admission interview. In this interview, you will need to explain your medical history and your history with substances. You will also need to disclose any mental health problems you have.
After this step, you will be given a list of options for facilities that match your needs. Then the team will arrange a time with you for screening.
At the screening, rehab staff will help you to create a treatment plan. This will include specific treatments which will be effective in your case.
After you arrive, you will go through detox and withdrawal. The Wiltshire rehab team will help you through this stage. They will give you medication and help you with therapy.
Therapy will ramp up after detox. This will include group and one-to-one therapy. You will also take part in 12-step meetings. A range of treatment and therapy options are available. These include alternative therapies such as acupuncture and art therapy.
The length of time you stay in rehab will depend on you. You will leave once you feel ready to do so. You need to feel confident that you can stay sober before you check out. The rehab team will do everything they can to give you the tools to avoid relapse.
Below is a detailed description of the pros and cons of each option:
A large part of therapy is to help you prepare for a sober life. If you have a supportive family, including them in therapy can be helpful.
Family system therapy can help you work through tensions caused by your addiction. Doing this will help you create a closer relationship with your loved ones. It will also prevent you from going back to past mindsets.
Family visits give you a chance to interact with someone outside the rehab Wiltshire programme. They are a source of inspiration and strength.
You will be able to share your successes with them and gain motivation. Involving family in the recovery process makes it more likely that you will stay sober.
When you arrive, the rehab team will liaise with you to make a treatment plan. They will also prescribe any medication you may need.
You will have access to round-the-clock care at your rehab Wiltshire facility. Withdrawal can be very severe. Having access to high-quality medical care is important to help you through this stage.
Withdrawal symptoms can be hard to deal with alone. This is why a lot of people relapse. They want the symptoms to stop but do not have access to medication.
After your withdrawal begins, you can expect the following:
Rare, but severe cases may also include the following symptoms. These will need to be treated until withdrawal is complete:
There are many forms of cognitive and behavioural therapies available, including those listed below:
At the end of your rehab programme in Wiltshire, you will begin aftercare. The aim of aftercare is to ensure you do not relapse when you return home. A year of aftercare is included in the cost of your Wiltshire treatment course.
Once you leave rehab in Wiltshire, your recovery still needs some work. Some withdrawal effects can continue for a while. This is likely if your addiction lasted a long time or you have had relapses in the past.
It is important to follow a treatment plan during aftercare. You will continue the therapy that you began during treatment. This can be at the same rehab centre in Wiltshire or with a different therapist closer to home.
If you do not have a safe place to live, you can use a sober living house. There are lots of good sober living houses in Wiltshire. This can also help if you feel that going home straight away might lead to relapse. You can use this as a bridge from drug and alcohol rehab in Wiltshire back into the real world.
In addition to one-to-one therapy, there are other meetings to attend. We recommend community support groups and 12-step programmes as part of your Wiltshire rehab. You should also continue with family therapy. This helps to keep your support network strong.
There are other options as well. Art therapy and similar creative forms of treatment can help you express emotions productively.
In the end, aftercare is about finding a treatment plan that works for you in the outside world. We’ll be here with you every step of the way.
