Drug and Alcohol Rehab Chester
The City of Chester is historic and charming, but like any metropolitan area, there are people with addictions living there. Drugs and alcohol are the cause of many social problems, and on a personal level they can have a devastating impact on the lives of people with addiction and their loved ones, from relationship breakdowns to financial problems or legal trouble. It can be extremely difficult to access help for an addiction, especially as the NHS is so overstretched, so if you’re looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Chester, then the Rehab Clinics Group may be able to help you.
We run a small selection of amazing recovery centres, staffed by experts and delivering world-class care. Our centres not only help people get sober, but also avoid excess drinking or substance abuse for life, freeing them from their negative behaviour cycles.
When To Get Help
We often hear the phrase ‘rock bottom’ in discussions about addictions, and many people believe that you must hit rock bottom before you can get help. However, hitting rock bottom doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve lost everything, it’s simply the point when you decide enough is enough and that you don’t want to use alcohol or drugs anymore. If you’re looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Chester, then that’s certainly a sign that you’re already considering treatment and that you think you might have a problem.
There can be many things that might make you feel like you’ve hit rock bottom. You may have been diagnosed with health problems because of your addiction, found yourself in debt, suffered a relationship breakdown or even found yourself on the wrong side of the law. However, you don’t need to wait for something bad to happen before looking at treatment programmes. At the Rehab Clinics Group, we work with people that have all sorts of addictions, some recent and some that have gone on for many years, and the only real criteria is a willingness to change.
Although rehab is never easy, as a rule, the sooner you can get help, the more straightforward your journey is likely to be. If you delay getting help, you may start to drink more or take larger quantities of drugs, becoming much more physically dependent and risking all sorts of illnesses and death.
Opting For Private Rehab
In areas such as Chester, it can be difficult to access NHS services. Firstly, there are nearly always long waiting lists, and once you reach the top, many solutions are one size fits all, which means you don’t get a personalised treatment plan. At the Rehab Clinics Group, all our centres offer quick admissions, often in a matter of hours, with everything taken care of from transport to meals. You also get a much more personalised approach to treatment, which means you get a mixture of traditional CBT and group therapy with holistic treatments, giving you the best chance of success. If you are looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Chester, then it’s worth considering going private, as it usually means a faster, more effective service.
Choosing A Clinic
We like to enable patients to have as much choice as possible when it comes to treatment, so the Rehab Clinics Group has a small selection of clinics in the UK, as well as one in Spain, allowing you to decide whether to go through treatment close to home or overseas.
While most people’s instinct is to pick rehab clinics that are close to home, over the years we’ve found that it can be beneficial for people to spend some time away from home. This is because some people with addictions are in negative behaviour patterns or have too much temptation at home, meaning it can be good to simply spend some time away. Of course, we know it’s important to keep the link between patients and their families, so we ensure there are phone calls and visits during your stay.
Our closest clinic to Chester is the Ocean Recovery Centre in Blackpool. Set in a period home on the seafront, this cosy centre is a welcoming, homely place to heal. We also have other similar centres across the UK, as well as running Step 1 Recovery in Spain, a luxury villa set in Spain. All our locations are easily accessed by road, rail or plane, and we can arrange transport to ensure you get to your centre quickly and safely.
No matter which clinic you choose, you can be sure of the best possible standards of care. We have staff on hand 24/7 if you are feeling unwell or just need to talk and offer workshops and activities to help you break negative cycles and stay sober.
After Drug and Alcohol Rehab
When you are searching for drug and alcohol rehab in Chester, you’re probably not thinking much about the future, but we want to try and maintain a sober, happy life. That’s why people who complete a rehab programme with us get a 12-months of free aftercare. These support groups are very effective in helping people through that difficult first year after rehab, and it’s a great chance to catch up with friends you made during your stay.
Full Discretion and Confidentiality
There is, unfortunately, still a lot of stigma around addiction, so it’s natural for people to want to keep their stay private. When you undergo a programme with the Rehab Clinics Group, you can be sure of the highest levels of discretion. We often work with high profile people, and you can be sure that nobody needs to know about your stay in rehab unless you choose to tell them.
