Detoxification treatment programme
The majority of our clients require a period of detox in our detoxification clinic. This is not a nice experience, but it is necessary in order to flush the toxins caused by drug or alcohol abuse from your system. The process of detox is to break your dependency on addictive substances.
You may be aware of a detox – clients often tell us they have attempted to perform their own detox at home. This is dangerous and should not be attempted. Due to the withdrawal symptoms that will occur, your DIY detox will quickly fail. Withdrawal symptoms, which happen when your body craves addictive substances, will happen when you try to cut out or reduce the number of substances that you take.
When someone tries to go “cold turkey” and cut substances in one go, the withdrawal symptoms are severe and painful. It usually ends with the individual reaching for drugs or alcohol and further damaged self-esteem.
However, when you undergo detox at Rehab Clinics Group, you will be assisted by the experts. Our medical team will ensure that you are supported and safe with around the clock support. Your access to addictive substances will be gradually tapered away over time, which will make it easier for you to overcome withdrawal symptoms. Prescription medication can also be issued if required to alleviate the discomfort of the process.
Your detox may last for as much as two weeks depending on the severity of your addiction, but once completed you’ll be able to press ahead with the rest of your addiction treatment. In our residential rehab, all of your needs are met under one roof. Private drug and alcohol rehab is not the cheapest solution, and there are options available on the NHS or via local charity solutions. However, both of these options often come with a long waiting list – and in that time, your addiction may worsen significantly.
However, there is no waiting list at Rehab Clinics Group and your treatment can begin straight away.
Upon completion of your detox, you will be able to undergo the therapies part of your treatment. Your therapies are completed on both a group and individual basis. The purpose of any therapies you have is to identify the reasons you’ve developed a drug addiction or an alcohol addiction.
In individual therapies, you will use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) or Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) to explore the issues you’re experiencing and make changes to your thoughts and behaviours moving forwards.
Group therapies may cause initial anxiety to some people, but it has proven to be very effective. By sharing your experiences with your fellow recovering addicts, you are able to engage in a kind of positive peer pressure. This often gives motivating effects to people and encourages better recovery. Group sessions are also an ideal opportunity to develop a support network for your life outside of rehab – all of these people you are sharing these experiences with will require your help as much as you’ll require theirs.
What are the 3 obvious signs of addiction?
Recognising the signs of addiction is vital. Sudden alterations to an individual’s behaviour or physical appearance may be a consequence of addiction. Those suffering from addiction may struggle to control their temper and become paranoid and confused. Sudden and extreme weight loss is also common, as is the onset of insomnia and discoloured skin.
What is the difference between private drug and alcohol rehab and residential rehab?
Residential rehab allows you to receive all of your treatment under one roof. It is markedly different from any other rehab treatment because it allows an individual to recover in safety with around the clock support from experts in the field of addiction. It also allows someone to step away from their life with a commitment of 30 days. This allows time to focus on your recovery journey and to steer clear of bad influences, whether that be places or people.
What happens after rehab?
When you are ready to be discharged, Rehab Clinics Group will work with you to create one of our personalised aftercare plans. An aftercare plan is essential for long-term recovery. The year following your rehab is difficult and you will need to show responsibility for your own recovery by avoiding triggers and sticking to your aftercare plan.
Relapse prevention is at the heart of your plan and we will invite you to regular follow up sessions and put you in touch with local recovery groups in Powys.
