Getting started with drug and alcohol rehab North East
Drug and alcohol addiction is an affliction which can affect anyone. It’s not an instant occurrence, instead an addiction arises gradually over time. It may start as a release after a hard day’s work or a seemingly effective way of unwinding after experiencing a stressful situation. It may even start as a leisurely pursuit with friends.
However, alcohol or drugs can soon become a crutch. Because of its gradual development, people are often unaware that they are addicted until it has become a serious problem. Once they develop a dependency, it’s very hard to break free.
We recognise that one of the most important steps on the road to recovery is to accept you have a problem and then – perhaps even harder – reaching out for help. When you first contact one of our drug and alcohol rehab North East clinics, we offer an understanding ear and an open mind. We allow you to express your thoughts and feelings without judgement.
The first thing we do is arrange an initial consultation. Here you get to have a one-to-one chat with one of our professional clinical team. It’s our chance to understand the precise nature of your addiction and all the contributing factors behind it.
Based on this information, our team can develop a detailed addiction treatment programme, which is designed to tackle all the physical and psychological issues surrounding the addiction and give you the best chance of a successful outcome. As you would expect, these consultation are completely confidential – as are all your conversations in our treatment centres.
We will also need to ask for details about your alcohol and/or drug use. In some cases we also ask for a sample of saliva or urine in order to accurately ascertain your level of dependency.
The type of treatments we offer
We offer a wide range of drug and alcohol rehabilitation treatments and techniques. These are adapted to the needs of each individual. We consider every case a special case because each addiction issue has its own particular set of causes.
There are many possible factors which contribute to addiction, including:
- Financial hardship
- Housing worries
- Relationship issues
- Past traumas
- Family problems
- Employment issues
In order to address the full range of issues which contribute to your addiction, we use a variety of approaches and proven techniques. The treatment options we offer at our drug and alcohol rehab North East clinics, include:
The process of detoxification provides a safe way of transitioning from your current level of drug or alcohol usage. It takes you from dependency, to not taking the troublesome substance at all. We do this via a process called ‘tapering’. It’s a gradual withdrawal from the substance in order to avoid harmful – and in extreme cases fatal – withdrawal symptoms.
To help with the detox, we also provide a nutritious diet, sometimes aided by vitamins and supplements, so that any side effects are further decreased.
Medicines and drug replacements
For people who are dependent on the most addictive drugs, such as heroine or other opioids, we can offer temporary replacements, such as methadone. The idea behind it is to take these individuals away from drug dealers and dangerous ‘unverified’ substances.
With a substitute drug in place, we can gradually reduce the dosage until the individual is able to come off them completely.
Talking therapies such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), allow you to better understand how your thoughts and feelings influence your drug or alcohol use. Empowered with this understanding, you can learn and practice techniques which allow you to control and change those thought-processes which would otherwise lead you astray.
In short: it gives you the tools for greater mental resilience which will help long after you’ve left one of our drug and alcohol North East rehab clinics.
It’s important for anyone suffering with an addiction to learn how to relax. Simple meditation techniques can work very well as they can develop the ‘relaxation response’ which is a “physical deep state of rest that changes the physical and emotional response to stress.” Other activities, such as breathing exercises and progressive muscle relaxation can also help create a deep sense of relaxation.
Throughout your stay at one of our clinics, you will be offered one-to-one professional assistance. You will get to talk to psychologists and counsellors about the issues affecting your addiction. You will also be assigned a keyworker during your initial consultation so that you always have someone supporting you on your journey.
