Have you attempted to ‘free yourself’ from alcohol before and failed? The sad truth is that only a small fraction of people suffering from alcoholism will be able to break free from their addiction unaided.
For the vast majority of people suffering from alcoholism, a professional intervention will be required. Why? Because alcohol affects neurotransmitters in the brain known as GABA-A. When alcohol is withdrawn, GABA-A activity decreases, causing a range of powerful withdrawal symptoms.
Rather than experience these symptoms, most addicts will simply continue to drink alcohol to ‘self-medicate.’ Another reason-why alcoholism is difficult to treat without professional help is due to underlying trauma that fuels the addiction.
If this trauma is not treated, the circumstances that fuel alcoholism remains. This means even if you do manage to rid yourself of alcoholism, the chances of relapse within the next 2-4 months are great.
Rehab Worcestershire, can be a unique experience for each patient, as many addicts of drugs and alcohol suffer from deeply personal issues. A wide range of treatment options is available to those at every stage of their alcohol and drug addiction.
Treatment options at our drug and alcohol rehab Worcestershire centres range from day programs and group therapy sessions, all the way to inpatient rehab, depending on the severity of patients’ addiction. Staff give full support and care to all patients, no matter their background, and we strive never to judge those we help in a professional; and caring manner.
Rehab is a place of support, and the environment and treatments are designed to help people beat their addictions and begin to live the lives they deserve.
Many people go through a very different experience in rehab when they compare their stories with other recovering addicts. However, the main thing they have in common is that Worcestershire rehab provided them the tools to take their life back.
Your treatment options are:
Our clinic can be contacted 24/7, by email phone or online voice chat, from their our admissions team will organize a free screening for you to attend as soon as they can,
When visiting drug and alcohol rehab Worcestershire centres for the first time, the patient will be assessed by our team of professional and supported psychologists, counsellors, and medical experts. The patient’s needs will then be considered, and a treatment plan designed.
You are then welcome to take time to think about your options, and discuss them with family and counsellors. You will also be invited to visit a number of facilities that you deem suitable, to view the premises and see for yourself what it’s like.
Below we explain the general rehab process at our drug and alcohol rehab Worcestershire centres which consists of three stages:
Depending on the length and severity of the addiction, detox is inevitable with most patients, and our staff are trained to provide the most support they can through this challenging time.
With a physical addiction, detox is your body trying to return to its healthy functioning state and is a difficult process to go through.
Confronting your addiction before things get to this stage can significantly reduce the recovery time for addicts; however, our staff are highly trained and have helped many people recover, no matter how severe the addiction.
What many alcoholics and drug addicts fail to realise, is that recovering from addiction is a process that is much more than abstaining from the substance.
Most people turn to drugs as a way to relieve some of the trauma and pain they may have suffered in life, and confronting this and learning to live a healthy and drug-free life is possible through support and rehabilitation.
Aftercare is a helpful way to avoid a dreaded relapse. It involves continuing therapy, counselling and group sessions to keep you on the right track.
Relapsing is common amongst those who get out of recovery and is absolutely nothing to feel ashamed about, but with supportive aftercare can significantly benefit the life of the recovering addict, and can help them live a life free from addiction or alcohol dependence.
First, you may choose to detox from home. Home-based detoxes are inexpensive, but the chances of relapse are greatest. We thus do not recommend a home-based detox for this reason. Your second option is to undertake a detox from home whilst attending therapy sessions on an ‘outpatient basis’.’ This option is equally fraught with the risk of relapse.
The third and final option is to undertake treatment from the safety of a residential treatment centre. You are removed from your ‘drinking environment’ whilst you receive your treatment.
How long does residential treatment last for? The duration of your stay at a residential treatment centre in Worcestershire depends on the severity of your addiction. It also depends on the severity of the mental health issues you face. The more severe these issues, the longer you must remain in a residential clinic.
Generally, residential treatment requires between 7 to 28 days to complete. Residential treatment also provides for weekly outpatient sessions once you return home. These outpatient sessions are available for around 12 months following the conclusion of residential treatment.
Below is an outline of a typical day at one of our rehab centres in Worcestershire:
Patients wake up early each morning and usually start their day with a healthy breakfast and some meditation to get them in a clear headspace to approach the day. After this, morning meetings occur generally.
Throughout the afternoon, there is a wide range of treatment and therapy sessions to avail of, depending on the patient’s requirements and interests.
Free time is allocated throughout the day for leisure activities such as ping pong, basketball, and pool.
12-step meetings take place after the evening meal, after which patients are expected to wind down at a reasonable hour.
If you have taken the time to research this field, you may be wondering what’s the most effective form of treatment for your particular needs.
An assessment is the most effective way of determining your treatment programme. Facts pertaining to your addiction and mental health issues must be determined using a proven and tested assessment. Fortunately, Rehab 4 Addiction has developed such an assessment.
