Drug and alcohol rehab treatment options in Basingstoke
Drug and alcohol addictions are a common problem throughout the country and Basingstoke is no exception. NHS figures show that a fifth of young people, and nearly 10% of all adults, have taken an illegal drug in the last twelve months.
Nearly 24% of adults in England and Scotland drink more than the recommended daily amount of alcohol, and 27% binge drink.
So, you are not alone if you suffer from a drug or alcohol addiction. Addiction is a much more common issue than people think it is. If you, or someone that you care about, are struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction, our rehab centres could help.
The signs of an addiction
To an addict, the signs of an addiction are often either ignored or rational behaviour has gone out of the window and are therefore not spotted. You may have found yourself constantly short of money or struggling with performance in work, perhaps to the extent you’ve lost your job.
You may have taken to a life of crime in order to fund your habit and you may have lost relationships with your friends or family because of your actions.
Drug and alcohol addictions can wreck lives – and that of others. An addiction has a profound effect on your physical and psychological health.
If left without being treated, an addiction can very easily kill. Beating addiction alone is very difficult and few people manage to achieve this.
However, a professional, evidence-based treatment program is much more likely to help you have a long-term recovery. There is no cure for addiction, but we can show you how to manage your condition.
Our rehab centres
If you are looking for drug or alcohol rehab in Basingstoke, Rehab Clinics Group can ensure that you find the right treatment programmes to guarantee you overcoming your addiction.
Our rehab treatment centres are top class and are staffed by experts from within the field of addiction recovery. Medical expertise may also be required during your treatment and is available if required.
We offer a range of services tailored to you the individual. No person is the same and no addiction is the same.
By ensuring everything is to your personal tastes and that your treatment will meet your recovery goals, we can offer you the best chance to beat your drug or alcohol addiction and resume your normal life.
We ask for a 28-day commitment to our residential rehab. This might seem like a long time to be receiving treatment, but this intense, focused approach is more effective than outpatient facilities.
Outpatient approaches are used by the NHS or charities, wherein someone receiving treatment does so over the course of weeks or months.
You may also find that you are present in a clinic by day and return home at nights and at weekends.
Residential rehab services are not common via the NHS, and even when they are available there are long waiting lists.
Every day is of vital importance when you’re suffering with a drug or alcohol addiction and every day lost is a day more of potential harm. Contact us today for an immediate admittance.
Detox and therapy in Basingstoke
A detox is the process of removing toxic substances from your system. A sustained period of abusing drugs or alcohol can cause the build up of such substances.
When you come into the care of Rehab Clinics Group, we will work with you to identify your addiction and identify the root cause, developing a bespoke treatment programme for you in the process.
Almost all clients need to undergo a detox. You may have tried to do this yourself, but a detox can be dangerous. This is because of withdrawal symptoms which begin when your body is denied substances it has become dependent on.
These withdrawal symptoms are at best unpleasant, at worst dangerous. There is no shying away from the fact detox is unpleasant, but with a structured detox programme in place you will be able to get through this difficult time.
We can also offer medical assistance and our medical staff will monitor you around the clock. A detox can take anything from two days to two weeks depending on the severity of your addiction.
Detox sees the physical substance flushed from your body, but the psychological aspect of a drug or alcohol addiction is often more difficult to overcome and is long lasting.
Different forms of therapy have a proven positive effect in helping people to overcome their drug or alcohol addiction and take back control of their lives.
Examples of these are family therapy, group sessions, one on one counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Once your detox has been completed, you will be able to concentrate on these therapies.
These will help to treat the root cause of your addiction – something that if not addressed can cause you to relapse in the future as only your addiction has been treated and not the reason you became a drug or alcohol addict in the first place.
We have spaces in our rehab clinics
When your rehab is complete, it will be time for you to return to your life in Basingstoke. There is still plenty of work for you to do. Addiction can’t be cured, but you can recover, and you can learn to manage your condition.
We’ll provide you with all the tools and knowledge you need to avoid a relapse. This most commonly occurs in the 12 months following your rehab so you will need to take responsibility for your recovery by avoiding places and people who might trigger your addictions.
We will also put you in touch with local support groups to continue the work you started in your time with us. Remember, there’s no wait for our services and we can begin your treatment right away.
