Does Drug and Alcohol Rehab Really Work?
Drug and alcohol rehab works really well. It is proven to have long-lasting results without relapse and has worked for most addicts that choose to go through a rehab treatment program. The only reason rehab may not work for you is if you’re not fully committed to recovery.
In order for rehab to work for you so that you can make a full recovery, you must take your rehab treatment plan seriously. If you are not fully committed and you’re not completely sure that you’re ready for recovery, then your therapies most likely won’t work and you are likely to experience relapse.
Rehab requires full commitment and for you to be compliant with the detoxification process and any therapies and treatments offered to you. You can really change your life and get better if you take recovery seriously and trust in the staff at rehab.
Rehab treatments tend to have such a good outcome due to many varying factors. The fact that your environment is different makes the recovery process more successful. When drugs and alcohol are not around and when you’re not in your normal environment, there is no temptation and no social pressures to use drugs or to drink alcohol.
When you are away from temptation it is easier to focus on therapy and getting yourself on the right track to recovery. Being away from home gives you a place to feel at peace and makes concentrating on yourself and your recovery a lot easier.
In rehab, you will be surrounded by people who understand you and your situation. You will find new friends that are going through the same experiences as you and that can relate to what you’re going through.
You will also be around professionals who care about your wellbeing and who are willing to help you every step of the way. You will be carefully monitored and receive full support throughout your stay in rehab. Through the detoxing process, the therapies, and everything else in between, you will be guided by brilliant staff.
Here at Rehab Clinics Group, we are committed to helping you achieve full recovery in the most comfortable and supportive way possible. A drug and alcohol rehab in Carshalton is your best option for making a full recovery.

When Is The Right Time to Reach Out For Addiction Treatment?
When it comes to drug and alcohol addictions and getting treatment, there is no time like the present. Addiction is a progressive disease which means that it will get worse as time goes on if left untreated. The longer you leave addiction and the more serious it gets, the longer it takes to treat and the more difficult it is to recover. For this reason, as soon as you see the signs of addiction, it is important to seek help.
If you see any of the following signs and symptoms of addiction, it is important for you to reach out and get some help from a rehabilitation centre.
- Outbursts of anger
- Reckless behaviour
- Failing to stop using substances
- Loss of interest in hobbies once enjoyed
- Memory problems
Once you have recognised that there is a problem, you’re well on your way to recovery. Seek help from a rehabilitation centre as soon as possible so that you can cleanse your body of drugs and alcohol and begin therapy and healing.
How Do You Convince an Addict to Seek Treatment in Rehab?
It can be difficult when someone you care about is battling addiction. Sometimes, they know they need help but avoid it, and other times, they deny they have a problem altogether. Denial is a powerful yet dangerous thing and if an addict is in denial, you must try to get them to understand what they are dealing with and help them face the truth before you can even begin to get them into rehab.
Firstly, it is important to try and understand the person dealing with addiction. Understanding exactly what they are going through can be very difficult. However, you must try to be there for them, listen to them, validate them and try your best to understand. Addiction is a disease and must be treated as such.
Next, you must do your research. Make sure you understand recovery and how it works. You can explain it to the person battling addiction and try to get them to understand how they can get better. If you struggle to talk them into going to rehab yourself, you can schedule an intervention with a professional. The professional will mediate the conversation and help convince the person that recovery is the best option for them.
It’s important to never force someone to go to rehab. The treatments will only work if the person is committed to the treatment options. Without commitment, the addict is likely to relapse.
What is the difference between substance and behavioural addictions?Substance addiction is essentially what it says - addiction to substances such as drugs and alcohol. Behavioural addictions are very similar to substance addictions. These are addictive behaviours brought on by the impulsive need to engage in behaviour that is being rewarded by your brain’s neuropathways releasing endorphins.
Does addiction affect mental health?Addiction does affect mental health significantly. There are many negative impacts on your mental health when using drugs and alcohol. Often people use drugs and alcohol as a form of self-medicating to mask their mental health problems. However, it doesn’t help your issues at all. In fact, it can make your problems a lot worse. Some drugs can increase your likelihood of developing a new mental health disorder and can make it much harder to treat. Both drugs and alcohol can cause, not only anxiety, depression, and many other mental health issues, but can also cause psychosis.
What happens after rehab?The thought of leaving rehab can be very daunting. However, there is no need to worry. When you leave rehab, you will be taken care of by an aftercare team. The aftercare team will help you with everything you may need when leaving rehab such as finding new accommodation, finding a new job, finding a local support group and more. They will also help with relapse prevention.
