Having an addiction can be a lonely experience, and it can be difficult to know where to turn to when you need help. That’s why the Rehab Clinics Group have a number of clinics in the UK, as well as one in Spain, that are ideal for those seeking drug and alcohol rehab in Stoke. We understand the importance of getting help quickly when you have an addiction, as continuing to use drugs or drink to excess could have a harmful affect on your health, and we offer fast admission and world-class rehab treatment.
Going to residential rehab
Many people who are looking for rehab centres in Stoke may be conflicted as to whether they want inpatient or outpatient rehab. While some people do well in an outpatient programme, it has been our experience that residential rehab clinics have a higher success rate, which is why we only offer inpatient care.
Staying in one of our drug and alcohol rehab clinics means you get round the clock care for the duration of your stay. Whether you’re going through detox or feeling tempted to relapse, it’s important to have people to talk to who can help you through the toughest parts of recovery.
Residential rehab is an excellent way to get away from the stress of everyday life so you can start to learn to live without drugs and alcohol. It can be difficult to go through recovery if you’re in a situation where you’re tempted to use drugs and alcohol all the time, or if you’re stuck in a difficult environment, which it’s worth considering staying outside of Stoke on Trent.
Going through detox
One of the things people who contact us about drug and alcohol rehab in Stoke are most worried about is the detox process. You may have tried to detox in the past but found yourself relapsing as the side effects were unbearable, or maybe you simply can’t imagine functioning without drugs or alcohol.
Going to a rehab centre for detox means you can choose to take prescription medication to alleviate the side effects. This has a slightly sedative effect, so you aren’t as affected by withdrawal symptoms. Rest assured, all our clinics provide a safe, homely environment while you’re going through detox, with support around the clock.
Starting your rehab treatment
Within alcohol and drug rehabs, you’ll find people from all walks of life, and staying in a residential clinic allows you to share your journey with them. There’s lots of talking therapies as part of your addiction treatments, from CBT as an individual, to group sessions run by trained counsellors, so you can learn a lot about the causes of your addiction and what makes you turn to drugs and alcohol. Through our workshops, you’ll learn about the effects of these substances on your body, and skills such as how to spot a relapse.
Holistic treatments are also a big part of our rehab programmes, so you have many treatment options during your stay. From sessions of yoga and mindfulness, to aromatherapy, massage or reiki, there are lots of different treatments you can try. Many of these things can be used once you get out of rehab, replacing the feelings you used to create with drugs or alcohol.
We also focus on your health, as those who’ve gone through substance misuse will often turn up feeling tired, sluggish and looking malnourished. We provide chef-catered meals during your stay and offer regular exercise, so you can start to heal your body.
Getting admitted to a clinic
You may have tried to find rehabs in Stoke through the NHS, and although they offer a lot of great treatments, there can often be a long waiting list. Frustratingly, even if you get to the top of the list, others may be put in front of you as they’re seen as more urgent cases, meaning you can wait a long time for help.
This is the reason why the Rehab Clinics Group has created a simple process for admission, so you don’t have to jump through hoops to get help. When a service user calls us, we carry out an initial telephone assessment and can help them choose the right clinic. We then take care of everything, all you have to do is pack some clothes, and we can often get you into a clinic within 48 hours. Delaying rehab can have a number of negative consequences, from affecting your health to putting you in debt or at risk of losing your job, so it’s important you get help as soon as it’s needed.
Finding local support groups
Once you complete your 28 days of rehab, you’ll no doubt feel a great sense of accomplishment, but it’s normal to also feel anxious about life outside of the clinic. We’ll give you 12 months of free aftercare if you complete our programme, which is why our recovery service has an excellent rate of success in the long term.
While you’re looking for drug and alcohol rehab in Stoke, you’ll notice there are lots of support groups in the North Staffordshire area, and these can be great for those coming out of rehab too. Narcotics and Alcoholics Anonymous are popular choices for those who need to build a support network and who want to be around people who don’t use drugs or alcohol. When you leave rehab, you’ll notice big changes to your life, so it’s important that you have ongoing support such as a local support group.
