There’s a stigma attached to addiction, which can make it hard for anyone to open up about it. However, as a complex behavioural illness, its important that treatment is received for any chance of long term recovery.
If you’re looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Irvine, we would strongly suggest residential addiction treatment. Our centres are located across the whole of the UK and even in Spain, and all provide personalised, holistic treatment programmes.
Turn your life around today, with a simple call to our admissions team.
When To Seek Treatment
Admitting you have an addiction is often the hardest step to take, but once you’ve taken that first step, its important to seek help urgently. Your health may be deteriorating and it’s likely that you’ll talk yourself out of rehab if you wait too long.
When you contact our admissions team, we’ll discuss with you your addiction, lifestyle, medical history and current challenges. We’ll use this information to advise on the best possible treatment for you. We can even have you admitted within 48 hours and send transportation to pick you up.
Addiction can be caused by and causes mental health issues, which is why treatment for both your mind and body is vital for your long term recovery.
No matter the severity of your addiction, its important not to delay treatment, the longer you leave it, the harder it’ll be and you’ll also be in danger of long term health implications.
Finding The Right Treatment
Everyone’s experiences of addiction will differ. Your root causes, current environment, support network, daily life experiences and motivation to recover, will all be individual to you. With this in mind, there is not one standardised form of treatment that’ll effectively enable you to reach long term recovery, instead you’ll need dual-diagnosis treatment that’ll help heal your mind and body.
If you’re looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Irvine, you may be inclined to recover locally. We, however, would not advise on outpatient treatment unless absolutely necessary.
That’s not to say that this treatment doesn’t work; if you’re highly motivated and suffer only mildly from withdrawal symptoms during detox, and don’t have peer pressure or a toxic environment surrounding you that fuels your addiction, then this treatment could be effective.
Outpatient treatment requires you to attend a detox clinic during the day, so you’re free to return home in the evenings and weekends. However, this is often when the challenge occurs, if your environment, or the people around you are triggers for your addiction.
When choosing your treatment, it’s important to find the best treatment for you personally, rather than what’s most convenient, or cheapest.
Residential addiction treatment, on the other hand, provides accommodation for you whilst you recover. Your recovery can be achieved at any of our centres across the UK, or perhaps you’d prefer the sunnier climes in Spain for recovery?
Either way, with residential addiction treatment you’ll receive a lot more than just a detox.
You’ll have a personalised, comprehensive treatment programme designed for you that’ll cover detox and a range of therapies to help you understand your addiction, its triggers and how to manage or change your daily life for the better.
Alongside treatment, you’ll have a network of support around you, as our staff are on hand to help you 24 hours a day and you’ll get to know the other residents who’ll share similar experiences to you.
With this high quality support, leading addiction treatments and newly found coping strategies, you’ll be able to turn your life around.
Addiction Treatment With Rehab Clinics Group
Upon arrival at drug and alcohol rehab in Irvine, you’ll undergo a full medical assessment before our medical team can design your comprehensive treatment programme.
Some people will arrive at the centre still under the influence, which is why detox is always the first step taken. Without a clear head, you’ll be unable to undertake your therapy treatment
Detox typically takes just a couple of days, in which time your consumption levels will be slowly reduced until your body is free from the substance. Withdrawal symptoms are common during detox, as it’s your body’s way of readjusting to coping without the substance.
The withdrawal symptoms you experience will depend on the length and severity of your addiction. Throughout detox you’ll be supervised by our medical staff to ensure that you’re comfortable and your withdrawal symptoms are manageable.
Once you’ve complete your detox you’ll start your therapy treatment programme. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) forms the foundation of most therapy treatments, as it helps you to identify your negative thought processes to develop more positive thought patterns and habits.
Alongside CBT, we also offer a range of therapy options as well as activities to encourage you to interact with fellow residents and develop healthier lifestyle habits.
Rehab may seem like a daunting prospect and you may imagine it to look like a prison or hospital, but upon arrival you’ll be surprised by the welcoming environment, homely feel and support and care that you’ll receive.
Upon successful completion of your drug and alcohol rehab in Irvine, you’ll complete a relapse prevention plan to help you maintain your long term recovery.
We understand that the first 12 months after rehab are often the most challenging, and the most likely time for someone to relapse, which is why we provide 12 months of free aftercare.
We’ll help you settle back in at home, mend your broken relationship and provide advice and support when you start your search for employment. We’ll also introduce you to local support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics.
These support groups can provide a lifeline when recovery gets challenging, as you’ll meet peers who are also in recovery and share similar experiences to you.
