Addiction doesn’t just affect the person who’s using alcohol and drugs, it can have a huge effect on your family members, especially children, and loved ones often feel helpless when they want to help someone with an addiction.
However, it’s never too late to turn your life around, and when you’re ready to seek help, the Rehab Clinics Group are here for you. If you’re looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Carlisle, we can offer you a number of options within easy travelling distance.
Do I have an addiction?
Many people who contact the Rehab Clinics Group would not classify themselves as addicts. Denial is a strong component of addiction, without it, people wouldn’t be able to continue on their path, but people with addictions will often start to tire of their behavioural patterns, and that’s when they might contact us about drug and alcohol rehab in Carlisle.
You don’t have to take a lot of drugs or drink a lot to be an addict, some people are functional addicts and they’ll hold down jobs, have busy family lives and seem happy, but they may be taking part in substance abuse in their spare time. Over time, as they use more and more of these substances to cope, the façade starts to fade, and their loved ones may notice signs of addiction.
One question you may want to ask yourself is ‘how does my use of these substances affect me and those around me?’ If you’re lying to loved ones, using deceptive means to get money, or using increasing amounts to get the same buzz you used to get, then it may be time to face some uncomfortable truths.
If you think you might have an alcohol or drug addiction, then it’s important to reach out and get help. The Rehab Clinics Group can carry out an initial consultation over the phone for free, and if it’s appropriate, suggest a rehab centre that might suit your needs.
Do I need to go through the detoxification process?
The time between deciding to go to rehab and arriving is short, so even if you haven’t drunk alcohol or used drugs, these substances may still be in your system. That’s why you will need to go through detox once you arrive for drug and alcohol rehab. You may be prescribed medication to get rid of the worst of the withdrawal symptoms, which many people find helps them get through the process.
Detoxes can be difficult, there’s no doubt about that, but when you stay at one of our clinics you get high-quality care to take you through the process. One of the advantages of choosing private rehab is that you get a nice environment in which to stay, with comfortable rooms where you can relax when you feel unwell.
Which clinic is right for me?
The Rehab Clinics Group can help you find a rehab clinic that’s right for your needs, taking into account your location, personal circumstances and other factors. You can go through addiction treatment in a clinic close to you if you need to stay near family, or if you want a break from everyday life and want to get away from negative influences, you can stay in our Spanish villa and still get the same level of recovery support that you’d get in the UK.
What are my treatment options?
When you choose the Rehab Clinics Group for drug and alcohol rehab in Carlisle, you don’t get a one-size-fits-all programme. Your treatment programme is tailored to you, taking into account the severity of your addiction and other treatments you may have tried in the past.
Treatment in rehab usually involves intensive therapy, and our clinics use proven methods such as CBT to get you to tackle the cause of your addiction, and there’s group therapy where you can work with others on their recovery journey.
Our clinics offer a 28-day programme, which is an excellent way to get intensive treatment and take time away from home. Complete your programme and you’ll get a year of free aftercare, which you can attend at any of our clinics.
This is in the form of a regular support group that covers different topics, so each week you’ll learn something new. Our teams will also help with life outside of rehab, helping you with things like rebuilding relationships or finding work, so you can enjoy life without drink or drugs.
Is residential rehab right for me?
When you’re considering what kind of addiction treatment to go through, one of the main considerations will be how successful the treatment is and how much it costs. While residential rehab isn’t the cheapest option, if you complete your programme and aftercare, then you have a very good chance of success in the long term. As long as you’re committed to the programme and willing to change, our staff will do all they can to help you achieve your goals.
