Addictions Treated at Rehab
What most people don’t realise is that you can technically become addicted to anything that causes you to produce dopamine. This is because drug and alcohol addiction is caused by a stimulant being introduced, and it causes you to experience a rush of the pleasure chemical dopamine. As this experience is replicated, your brain gets used to the higher dopamine level and eventually assumes it needs the stimulant to produce dopamine.
As your brain starts to crave the stimulant, you may begin to feel anxious or depressed if these cravings are not met for too long. At our drug and alcohol rehab centres, we offer a wide range of addiction treatments to help you.
The most commonly treated addictions in rehab are:
- Cannabis addiction
- Cocaine addiction
- Prescription painkillers addiction
- Gambling addiction
- Opioid addiction
- Alcohol addiction
- Amphetamine addiction
- Drug addiction
It is important that if you are living with any of these addictions, you are aware that addiction is not something you can just overcome alone.
Even behavioural addictions such as gambling and sex addictions can cause serious harm if you attempt to quit cold turkey and hope for the best.
The best case scenario if you do this is a very long and difficult recovery period where you will struggle with anxiety, depression, paranoia and chronic insomnia alone, leading you to be more likely to relapse.
Relapsing is always dangerous as it often involves binge usage. This can easily result in the following:
- Contracting an STI from sex or needle sharing
- Loss of lots of money in a gambling binge
- Overdosing on drugs or alcohol
- Risk-taking behaviour
- Crimes committed
The only way you should consider having your addiction treatment is by a team of medical professionals found in a drug and alcohol rehab centre in the Henley area.
How Does Private Rehab Work?
Private rehab works very similarly to all rehabs as it follows the same core principles of getting you healthy. It does this by providing you with various treatments designed to deal with your physical and mental addictions. This is a very delicate process and so should never be attempted alone in Henley.
The first treatment you will receive is a drug or alcohol detox. The detox is a process that takes around ten days to complete and is often considered the hardest part of your rehab stay.
This is because the drug detox process is about weaning you off all drugs and alcohol, and you will likely experience withdrawal symptoms.
If you are addicted to mentally addictive substances such as cannabis, you will likely only experience psychological withdrawal symptoms which include:
- Mood swings
- Nightmares or night terrors
However, if you are addicted to a physically addictive substance such as alcohol, heroin or prescription painkillers, you will experience physical withdrawal symptoms, which can be dangerous as they include:
- Hot flashes
- Muscle pain
Due to how dangerous the detox can be, our rehab centre’s medical team will monitor you night and day. They will keep you safe and provide you with medication to relieve your withdrawal symptoms before they can progress to the point of danger.
You will also be given access to therapy sessions to teach you how to manage your addiction in the long run. This will allow you to continue to work towards long-term recovery even after you have left the rehab centre.
Private rehab centres differ from other available treatment options thanks to their treatments being tailor-made for you. They can take the time to listen to your experiences and needs to create an appropriate treatment plan.
They also don’t leave you waiting, hoping that a spot opens up in their facilities during a delicate time in your life. You simply have to book in for a pre-admission assessment just to be sure that they can accommodate your specific needs. Then you find a convenient date to start your treatments.
Private rehab is all about you and your rehab experience. Get in touch today to learn more about your drug and alcohol rehab options in Henley.
Benefits of Inpatient Rehab Treatment
It has been proven that inpatient rehab is the best option as it has one of the highest success rates. This is due to the dedicated staff who provide you with 24-hour support during your stay.

How Long Does Rehab Take?
Rehab lasts however long you want it to, as you are in control of your addiction treatments. Some people prefer to only stay for the 10-day detox treatments. However, it is recommended that if you want the full rehab experience, you should stay for the 28-day treatment plan.
During this time, you will receive all the treatments that you need and be given the best possible care so that you can achieve long-term recovery in Henley.
What Happens After Rehab in Henley?
The journey to long-term recovery doesn’t end just because your time in rehab has. If anything, it has only just begun.
When you leave rehab in Henley, you are given access to aftercare services that are available for up to a year. These services are there to ensure that you continue to make good progress towards long-term recovery.
They include a custom relapse prevention plan that contains everything you learnt in therapy so that you can avoid your triggers and manage your cravings. It may also include a referral for follow-up therapy sessions so that your mental health can continue to be monitored.
You may also want to find a local support group such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous, as they can offer you the support you have received during your time in rehab.
