As one of the leading names in addiction recovery treatment, we have centres based all over the UK. That means that, wherever you’re based, we can help you finally walk away from drugs and alcohol and instead start planning for the life that you want.
What Causes Addiction?
There isn’t a sole cause of addiction. If we look at behavioural addictions like gambling, shopping and gaming, some people are simply more prone to addictive behaviours. Whereas alcohol and drug addiction is caused by regular use of the substance.
The reason that someone turns to drugs, alcohol or other substances can vary too. It could be a result of personal trauma, the environment they’re in, social groups, health or even genetics.
Growing up with an addict or seeing addiction in your younger life does also not mean you will become addicted later down the line; not witnessing someone go through addiction doesn’t mean you aren’t at risk of it either.
Addiction is a medical condition, and it’s no one’s fault. It’s a hugely personal condition that will be different for each person going through it. For this reason, one of the only ways to get better is to seek professional help at a rehab centre.
Do I Need to go to Rehab?
If you’re asking this question, then something has made you question your behaviour and substance use. This is a strong indication that you might benefit from rehab. Again, there isn’t a set list of symptoms that mean you need to go to rehab, but some common signs include:
- Being unable to stop using the substance even though you want to
- Cravings and withdrawal symptoms without it
- Wider health concerns
- Mood and energy changes
It’s important to look at how all aspects of your life are being affected by drugs and alcohol too.
For example, if relationships are breaking down, your finances are suffering, or you struggle to hold down jobs, it could be a sign that you need some help and guidance.
At Rehab Clinics Group, we’re here for everyone, but as an individual, you need to want to recover in the first place. This is to ensure that you take advantage of all treatment on offer and will give you the best possible chance at long-term recovery.
Admitting or even realising that you might have a problem with drugs or alcohol can be the first hurdle, but our team can speak with you and help you come to acceptance to get help in our drug or alcohol rehab.
What Happens at Rehab in Evesham?
You first need to find a rehab centre that meets your needs and expectations, which is exactly what our team is here for. When you get in touch, we’ll ask a few questions to get to know you better as well as your addiction. That way, we’ll know what type of treatment will best suit you and whether you should attend on an inpatient or outpatient basis – but more on that later.
When you arrive, you’ll be shown around the centre and will have a chance to meet the doctors, nurses, mental health counsellors and other professionals that will be with you. The plan for your treatment will be discussed, and you can ask any questions you have and voice your concerns.
Treatment depends on a few different factors, but you’ll have access to psychological therapies like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Counselling and Stress Management.
Rehab treatment isn’t just about treating the initial physical addiction but also the emotional side to it too. That’s why many rehab centres combine wellness and social activities with helping you shape a new and healthier version of yourself.
You’ll be regularly monitored to ensure that your treatment is working, and family and friends will be invited to visit when appropriate. We believe this gives you crucial support and can also help them understand what you’re going through and the support you’ll need when you leave.
Many patients must go through a drug and alcohol detox when they arrive. This is where the substance will leave your body and is required before any treatment can begin. Perhaps you’ve tried this before, or maybe you’re worried about difficult side effects.
Either way, a medically safe detox has high success rates, and you’ll be supported throughout the whole process and prescribed medication to help ease any symptoms.
Treatment Options in Evesham
When you first get in touch, our friendly advisors will explain the types of treatment on offer. This includes outpatient and inpatient rehab programmes. Inpatient programmes require patients to stay on-site, and outpatients return home in the evening.
Both have success stories, but choosing an inpatient programme can often provide a better chance of long-term recovery as you’ll be away from familiar surroundings and can focus fully on your recovery.
Other benefits of inpatient rehab treatment include:
- 24/7 access to support and care
- Quality accommodation and relaxing settings
- Additional wellbeing and social activities
- Industry-leading therapy around-the-clock
There isn’t a right or wrong answer, so choosing the right centre is important. Our team will be more than happy to advise on this, though.
The Admissions Process for Rehab in Evesham
It all starts with one phone call with our admissions team – whether it’s about your addiction or someone you love. After a chat, we recommend a plan of action and outline your options. A pre-admission screening ensures that individuals are in the best position for treatment, and then it’s time to secure your place at rehab with a deposit.
An admissions date will then be confirmed. It really is that simple, and we’ll be with you every step of the way.
If you have any questions, want some more information or perhaps just want someone to take the burden off your shoulders, call 03301 596 494 today. Addiction might be consuming your life, but it doesn’t have to consume your future.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I prepare to go to rehab?
To prepare yourself for rehab, you should sort out what you are taking with you – remember to only bring the essentials such as clothes and toiletries. One of the most important things is to get into a positive mindset that is ready and willing to work and self-reflect. Approaching rehab with a good mindset means that your time there will be as successful as possible.
What happens after I leave rehab?
Once you leave rehab you will have access to an aftercare package which is focused on relapse prevention and support. Many people leaving rehab continue to attend support meetings and stay connected with former addicts to increase the chances of long-term recovery. Also, during your time with us, you will have learnt techniques and tips to help you deal with triggers and urges.
What are the best treatment options for addiction?
There is no right way to approach addiction treatment. Getting to the source of the emotional and psychological issues that drive a person to addiction is the best way to make sure the destructive patterns aren’t repeated. A combination of medically induced detoxification and various forms of talk therapy are the bedrock for effective addiction treatment.
